Default Windwalkers Vermilion

Never done a project log before so feel free to tell me if I am on the road to ruin. Comments are welcome as well as questions.
First up ... what I have going on:


This is what is done:
1 Reg Predator
15 Termies: 1 w/Heavy Flamer 1 w/Cyclone 5 w/LC
18 Reg. Assault squad
1 RAS sarge w/PW 1 w/pf&MB
5 man Scout squad
14 Tactical marines
5 Tac. marine sarge with chainsword
2 Tac. flamers 1 plasma 1 meltagun
5 Sang. Priest all with PW and JP
1 Capt. with PW and Stormbolter
1 Kit bashed Shrike
Mephiston
5 Man Honour guard all with PW

What I am working on now:



I am nearly done with the Land Raider. I will finish the right sponson this week and cement it in.


My Sang. Priests ... I am very happy with them as they turned out about as well as I could hope. This one is my favorite.

I got the idea for the lava blade from The Wraithlord. I came across it via Varakir as he does amazing work on Sallies.
Glowing blades

And Mephiston:

I actually painted him in one 8 hour span ... I had him all put together and primed black but when I was working on him I was in such a groove that I did not want to stop. I think he turned out well.

GW Blood Red washed with Devlan Mud for the infantry and on the Mechanized stuff I use GW Red Gore. I also use Bleached Bone for the shoulder pads. Everything I have paint-wise is GW except the clearcoat which is Krylon Satin finish ... makes it look wet.

that's a lovely finish on the landraider - loving the colour scheme. looks like it could have used a bit more highlighting though...

all the same, an excellent looking force. good show

current wip -
dark angels seventh company
skaven horde
the warriors of ulthuan

foible - foi·ble / ˈfoibəl
noun: a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone's character:
"they have to tolerate each other's little foibles".

The lava blades look very cool, mephiston is lookin' pretty good to. As was already mentioned, your vehicles look a little bit flat, you could easily solve this by just blacklining a little bit (i.e. painting thin black, or other dark color, in the crevasses), its very simple and fairly fast. Also, a little highlighting on the basic marines would liven up the force a bit, just going over the higher areas with blood red again would work just fine. Overall, a solid lookin' army. Good work!

Thanks guys ... I went ahead and satin finished them rather than out hard lines on them. This gives them the wet look and puts a hard line on them that changes at all times with the persons perspective as they are viewed ... and it's less work.

Finally got back into the cubby hole of painting and started working on my RAS Sarges. They all have PW and Melta bombs on them. I basecoated many of the guys I have been working on so forgive me for not taking pics as I put them together.


Now these are a WIP so I will get more stuff up by the end of the week.

Well I got one of the Sargeants done ... here he is.




Renuo is naturally Latin, means to deny or reject.
My freehand artwork blows goats but I am getting better. Lettering is not much of a problem it is that fucking raven. I always joke about how my artistic skills are so bad that I would fuck up stick figures and that damn raven proves it.

I'm usually not a fan of Satin finished models however I actually think these look quite nice. Good job

Regards,
Jake.

In terms of personal preference, the varnish is too gloss for my tastes.

I understand what you said before; that it gives a highligh from the natural light through normal reflection from the mini but in terms of mini painting, you'll get better results from painted highlights and a more matte varnish.

I hear you on the time-sink front, maybe have a go on some character/special models and see what you can achieve, based on what you've done so far you definitely have the basics down
