I love it Derek! That mud is just awesome looking to say the least.
Gee Horus, I wonder where I got the idea for this (Thanks again for the tip)

Did I miss a close up pic of the art work on the top doors?
Nope. I haven't posted one yet. Give me a couple of days and I will get one up.

The smoke dischargers have a seam on the middle tube that should be filled.
Ouch! good catch. I still wasn't satisfied with these anyway. It will give me an excuse to work on it.

I do have some fluff issues why there are IF half painted like LoD but apart from that, amazing.
Yep. I've heard that before. However, it fits the theme of my army as they are mixed together.

Thanks! That confirms it. No banners on this one

After I have an even coat of the Darksun I give it wash of Gryphonne Sepia. Once that dries I reapply the Darksun on the flat surfaces being careful to leave the washed areas showing through in the recessed areas. I thin out the Darksun quite a bit for this step so it usually takes 2-3 coats until I am happy with the results. Finally, I use straight Bleached Bone for the final highlights. Post a couple of pics when you try this and we can give you some feedback on your efforts.

As for Saturday..., sorry I can't as I expect to be working a 10 hour shift that day. Some other time though.

Now that is really turning out! The yellow is right on and the mud effect looks great. My only suggestions so far are first, to add a little more colour by painting up some of the armour plates and such using some other colours. (Careful..., don't over do it though!) And second, drill out the barrels of your guns using a pin vice. It's a small detail, I know, but I think that it would add a nice finishing touch.

One other suggestion is to post these pics in the Modelling and Painting forum so that others can appreciate your efforts and add their own comments.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing this in person.

Thanks for that! I have 9 more tactical marines left and then I can finally say that this project log is finished. The only problem is..., I can't seem to get motivated to do it. I currently even have them out on my painting desk so that I can get at it. Each time I try, however, I end up playing with my orks or my airbrush. Oh well.

For now, here are the updated pics of my finished Rhino. I posted them i the general modeling and painting section but they should be here anyway.



...and close up of the freehand;


Hopefully I'll have the last of the marines soon and then I'll post some group shots.

Derek I'm glad I could help man, I'm just sorry I neglected to do a tut in time, but it looks like you got the hang of it no problem!! Maybe this weekend... I just don't have the proper lighting and I'm too lazy to go to Home Depot to get another fs light. Not to mention, buying one takes figures away LOL Everything looks great. I can totally relate to not wanting to touch the final bits of an army. I think it's just the end is sooo close that you don't want to bother with just 9 more guys... c'mon you can do it!!!
