Unfortunately I cannot paint anything until the weekend so I have been figuring out exactly what I want to do with the Hawks in my spare time after work to keep me entertained.

p.s this isn't an army list its just a general overview of the first company and the physical models that will make them up.

1st Company Lightning Hawks: Veterans

HQ

Captain Cassius Nightingale - Command
Chaplain Francis Invictus - Command


Command Squad:
-Apothecary Kratos
-Veteran Sgt Aelius - Company Standard Bearer
-Veteran Sgt Pretus - Bodyguard
-Technical Sgt Rainer - Tech Mechanicum advisor


Dedicated Transport - Damocles Command Rhino

Elites

Vanguard Veteran Squad
- Veteran Sgt Drusus
- 4 Veteran Vanguard Troops

Sternguard Veteran Squad
-Veteran Sgt Diego
-4 Veteran Sternguard Troops


-Dedicated Transport: Razorback

Terminator Squad
- Sgt Fidel
- 4 terminators

-Dedicated Transport: Land Raider Helios (with terminator doors and extra armour ;) )

Assault Terminator Squad
- Sgt Paulo
- 4 Terminators

- Dedicated Transport: Land Raider Achilles


Venerable Dreadnought (my friend has the name so I will enter it when he's painted)


Troops

Veteran Tactical Squad 1
- Sgt Felix
- 9 Veteran Tactical Troops

-Dedicated Transport: Rhino (all dolled up extra armour etc.)

Veteran Tactical Squad 2
- Sgt Darien
- 9 Veteran Tactical Troops

- Dedicated Transport: Rhino (as above)

So that is what the first company will look like. All the models will be painted in veteran colours i.e. all troops will have white helmets and will look a little bit cooler than the battle company etc. I am hoping to design a display board for these guys too when I have some time off in the summer.

I will post more about the other ideas I have for the other companies later on. More new shiny models come out and then I want to buy more lol.

I am going to aim to get this company painted first and then move onto the next one or I will never complete it haha.

Ciao for now

Hey LTP, it's great to see you back on the boards. Excellent work on the Chaplain, and on how the Tacticals are shaping up. Looking forward to again watching the Lightning Hawks grow. Keep up the great work!

Love seeing your work. not sure how I missed any of it before. I will in all likely hood be stealing some ideas from you ;) (possibly begging for an airbrush tutorial after seeing your work on the Reaver)

Thanks . lol kids rock.


I had a little bit of time this weekend to pick up the paint brush and carry on with the tactical marines.

I also received a nice parcel from wayland games. This will finish off the troops for the 1st company.



Since the last post I have applied the washes to all the tactical marines.

Purple wash - liche purple
Babab Black - Adeptus battle grey
Devlan mud/nuln Oil - all helmets, NMM, shoulder pads etc.
Blue wash - Seals and screens/plasma

I then started to build up the purple:







I then added more layers getting lighter by adding commando khaki to the lichee purple and then the final highlighting was painted with white.







I began to highlight the NMM parts of the marine and That is still WIP.

I am not home for two weeks now but hopefully I will have a lot more time after that to get these squads done and then i can move onto the vanguard vets and other terminators.

Here is a picture of my workspace to finish



Ciao for now

Hey everyone. So I have just managed to get some time to paint again. Finished one of the tactical marines. I didn't want to go all out on these guys but I'm quite happy with it. I just need to clean up the highlights a little and blend the helmet out.









hoping to get the rest of this squad finished in the next week.

Let me know what you think of the base edging colour.

ciao for now.

Lovely stuff there, L!

Loving the screen on that auspex by the way, and as for the base edge I reckon it looks fine

Cheers dude

Decided to make a small tutorial yesterday...

Here is a simple step by step tutorial on how I paint Space Marine Chest Pieces:

Step 1



Here I have a tactical marine that has been painted with the base colour (snakebite leather) and washed with devlan mud. It is now ready for the next layer of paint. You can do this with any colour and follow the same directions.

Step 2



I start by adding snakebite leather to my palette and a little bit of white to make it a shade lighter.





Using a fine detail brush, I carefully paint this onto the Chest piece. I add it to the edges of each feather and the majority of the body.

Step 3



Next I add more white to the snakebite and bring it up another shade lighter.



This is then added to the chest piece in the same way as last time. This is when you can begin to paint it towards the edges of the feathers, adding more depth to the highlighting and shading.

Step 4




I then add another drop of white paint to the mixture to make it lighter again.




Now you can begin to pick out the very edges of the chest piece and the top of the feathers. On this layer I only paint the bottom of the body and the tops of the heads to make it pop.

Step 5



Finally I add pure white to the chest piece. I only place it on the edges of the feathers and the edges of the body. This will give contrast and show off all the other layers that you have produced along the way.

As you can see this is a quick and easy way to make the main part of the space marines armour really stand out. This normally takes me around 10-15 mins to paint if I take my time with it.

The same highlighting skills can be transposed onto the shoulder pad trims:









The only difference is that this takes a little more time to blend between layers.

Ciao for now...
