Those look great! even with the camera messing with the blues, still really awesome. And I think its the goal of pretty much everyone on this thread to get your rep up to your old number.... too bad I can only give 1 rep at a time
I honestly don't know if it's messing with it or if it's just a factor of the varnish interacting with the light in a way it doesn't do with your eyes. These are actually the first miniatures I've ever put varnish on and I'm using matt varnish so maybe that explains some of it - I'm thinking about getting a hold of some satin varnish and see if that makes any difference.
I'm glad we have a common goal about the rep then. Sure is going to take a while though...
Well based on those BA (in both senses) tanks you did a while back im not too worried
Da... As always, truly inspired good sir.
It's just a couple of tacticals, nothing fancy thus far. So we'll see what the more advanced units can bring when it comes to inspiration ;)
Well THIS is what i call Night Lords!!!!
Oh my GOD!
They are so amazing!
Glad you like them, I've had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on my take on the Night Lords which was kind of surprising to me seeing as I haven't really taken their full aesthetic into the miniatures just yet (no bat wings, no skulls painted on the helmets and so on). But I guess I must be doing something right :D
I don't know why I haven't put this update up earlier since I finished this miniature a couple of days ago. It's a Mk III miniature taken from the Rapier Laser Destroyer set but I've changed his equipment around a bit (pieced together an alternate right arm) since in HH:Betrayal the crewmembers doesn't actually have bolters (which the miniatures comes with) so I needed to give him a bolt pistol. Anyway, he'll be a squadmate stand-in till I've painted the actual Rapiers (and the rest of the crew for them).
And here's another "army pick", still loads of legionnaires to paint as anticipated:
I also got my Forgeworld order which was an odd one to say the least. They did not send my Contemptor Pattern Heavy Bolter which I've ordered but instead I got a MK V Heresy Armour squad(?) which is a Mark of power armour I didn't plan to use in this army but I guess I might as well now that I got the squad anyway. While on the subject of missing items one of my MK IV assault squad didn't come with any left arms either...
I also got a lot of miscast pieces, particularly the legs on some of my MK IV assault marines but also on the MK IV tactical marines. Disappointing when it happens but nothing out of the ordinary when we're talking about FW. Kind of a bummer to get a hold of them for replacements though. I even tried calling them yesterday but due to some huge mishap in the local area a lot of their customer support wasn't able to get to work so I gave up after a good amount of time in queue since the price tag for international calls aren't that great with my current phone service. Will have to try again tomorrow if I get some spare time at work...
Anyway. I'm slowly building some MK IV assault marines. I don't want to build them all now though seeing as how FW will probably release Night Lord upgrade kits with the second HH book (problem is I don't know when they'll release it). I'll probably build 5 marines at a time and paint them up and keep repeating that cycle till I either run out of marines or they release the upgrade kits.
Got the following miniatures in the to-build/built pile with a continuing debate on what to finish first:
- Scimitar Jetbike Squadron
- Rapier Laser Destroyer x2
- Mk V Siege Dreadnought x3
- MK IV Assault Marines
- MK III Legion Tactical Marines (with Command Upgrade pieces)
- Mk IV Legion Tactical Marines (with Command Upgrade pieces)
- Mk II / IV Apothecaries
- Land Speeder Tempest x2
- Drop Pods
- Caestus Assault Ram
- Terminators (Converted plastic) with Cataphractii weapons
... Maybe it'd be easier to choose if I didn't have so many choices...
Anything specific you'd like to see me tackle? Leave a comment and I'll see what I can do...
Till next time
