The new termie definatley looks the best mate. I think the blue actually looks better than the origional model (of course, the gorgeous lighting efefct of the origional are amazing lol) I think the thing I like the most about the new scheme is the highlights, they look really good and clean.

I also think the gold looks better on the new guy too.

All in all, very promising if everything in this log from now on looks like that ;) looking forward to it mate.

Keep up the good work.

I'm loving the new scheme. I like how you've actually made the metal effect work, not an easy feat.

Hey Wraithlord, this army looks incredible. Going through all the pages of it was totally worth the time to see the progression of your awesome art. +rep for sure.

Unfortunately with 33 pages of stuff in this project I only scrolled through all the pictures and didn't really try to read hardly any of the posts. Could you perhaps tell me what you did to get the blue that you have decided on using and your layering?

Please tell me you're just going to 'cabinet' your older models with all the OSL and such; they're far too well painted to scrap and start again.

I like the new terminator. I really like the way the original PA marine looks with the OSL on the lava and what not. Are you planning on continuing that theme on the terminator?

Azure blue and pale gold is indeed a nice change from the deep blue and Yellow I see on thousand son models.

They have an 'arctic' feel to them.

I await more :D

Oh hell yeah, after all the work I put into them there is no way in hell I am stripping them.

Since a couple of you asked this here you go. It is pretty much the same as the last attempt with Boltgun for the base and then built up using washes of Asurmen Blue. The difference is with the previous attempt I put on the wash straight from the pot and too heavily which overpowered the boltgun entirely. This time around I am doing extremely watery washes and letting each one dry before doing the next and doing as many as it takes until it 'feels' right.

And yes, I intend to do more of the OSL. Most likely not on every model however as it will lose its impact that way.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Just wondering what medium you use to dilute your washes, just water or something else? Also, any idea of roughly the proportions of wash:diluting medium (be it water, or whatever else).
Thanks

Hmm...another thread i've read about 20 times but apparently never commented on....

The new termie scheme looks great, aside form the lack of OSL i prefer it to the scheme on the power armor squad. It's great you've found a way to do the colours faster without comprimising quality.

What's the plan for the bases? More lava?

Looking forward to seeing more of this, your WoC army was beautiful, this should be a work of art! (no pressure )

Just plain water. The ratio differs depending on what I want to do but in general for this model the ratio was usuall 2:1 or 3:1 water to wash. When I apply the wash you can barely tell any colour was in the water at all and it takes 5 or 6 washes at least to get it where I want.

Varakir: yes there will me more lava bases but unlike the original squad I won't be doing it for every single one of them, most likely just HQ units and champs in general.

Term is finished and I am more than happy with it.
