The storm shield you have on your termie one page 1. Is that from Forge world? Thinking about getting an assualt termie squad but the storm shields that come with them look way to puny.

Not from Forge World. It came with the assault terminators box but there is only 1 shield that is this size. The rest are the small ones that you are probably talking about.

Well atleast you get one of the good shields in the box, i really hate the look of the small ones. Might be able to duplicate them out of GS.

The clay is a brilliant idea, i have tried making moulds in the past with GS and it never would work properly as the bit would always snag and stretch the mould.

thanks for the link.

A Quick wip pic of my Inquisitor Lord. I finished the head (Including the tattoos) and now I'm starting on the armour. I want to make the armour look like chrome while using metallic paints. I thought that I would try to get come feed back before I get too far.




The fur is just based in for now (I didn't want to chance having an "oops" later after the face is already completed)

C&C appreciated

It is going to be hard to do the chrome look with actual metallic paints man. I hope to hell you can pull it off as I will be VERY interested in learning how. So far he looks sweet, the skin is top notch.

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?

Good luck with this project DF, but for NMM chrome effects you essentially need a horizon passing along the lower portions of each segment of armour and a vivid contrast between the sky and the earth (hence SE-NMM) with your lightest areas can i recommend adding a spot of white paint to your metallics to really brighten them up more. Then you will want to do a darker horizon colour, but since you're using metallics i would use brown ink in thin layers and build it up, so the lightest part of the darker areas is at the bottom. Also remember with the edges is where alot of the light will be reflected from so they will be comparatively lighter than the surrounding areas.

In the case of your inquisitor guy i would actually put the darkest shades under his head bit of the armour and the lightest on the chest like you have done. Oh one question, is it the model or the paint on the chest making it look a bit rough? or the photo even? in my mind an effective chrome is smooth. I hope all this helps.

If you look at the parts that are just primer that may answer your question. There does seem to be a slight texture to the base coat..., but really only noticeable in these extreme close ups. Not sure why that happened though.

I am going to have to try this for sure. I was wondering if adding white would help to lighten up the paint a bit but I was unsure of what would happen. I do agree, however, that the very edges could be brighter.

This is the part that I am most unsure of. I tried it in a couple of spots to begin with but it just wasn't turning out for me. I don't know if I was doing it wrong or if the colours were not working for me. I will try it again and post a pic to see what you think.

Thanks again!
