The Land raider is done! It was a very fun tank to paint. I never liked the Raider before becouse I just think it was a little to big. It took to muck space on the tabletop. But after painting it i´ve changed my mind, it´s still big, no question about that. But it´s funniness to paint more then make up for that. More Raiders will be coming, be sure about that











Hope you like them

Time to revive this plog again, I´m currently on vacation so theres not much painting going on. I fact I haven´t even lifted a piantbrush since the vacation began. But before I started the slacking period I did manage to finish my 5 new snipers, and I´ve just now, (3 weeks later) gotten around to take some pictures of them. I think they turned out really good.







And here´s a shot of the whole group finished, so far they haven´t achieved much on the battlefield though..

Looking real good Meldon! I'm not sure if it was in your log or not but I swear I have seen the cloak technique somewhere before...nonetheless good job on the models mate. Curious tho, why are they not in the UltraMarine color scheme?

Thanks

I put up some pictures of the first 5 I did last year so you should have seen the cloaks somewhere here in my plog before. It´s an odd look for them that I think is kinda uniqe (never seen it on any other models). The reason for them not being blue is a simple one. I think that a sniper wearing blue while trying to hide is a stupid and probably dead sniper. I think the scheme fits their more stealthy roll compared to the other marines

Loving the redeemer, the blue is excellent, very crisp. The scouts look very nice as well, if a little green.

There is one thing from a modelling stand point when it comes to LRs though, and this is strictly a personal preference thing, [rant]it's why do people put the sponson weapons in the rear hatch? One thing any body who has ever trained in APCs will attest to is the need to debus while getting covering fire from the vehicle. I for one would not get out a hatch that is within the arc of a weapons system for fear of getting caught in the cross fire, where as I would very confident of getting out behind [/rant] It does look great though.

Yeah I know, I dident think of it until it was all put together and painted though so it was a bit late to do anything about it then. The next one I do will have the sponsons in the front

Time for a uppdate I feel.

I have been workin on just 2 models lately, but one of them is a bit bigger then the usual inf so it should count for atleast 5-6 of them
First up is my contribution to the army painting challange of August, I did a Chaplain with a jumppack this month, I really like the model and I love chaplains on the battlefield. More of these will show up in the future

The reason that there is no text on the tabard is that I though this schould be a new chaplain, newly risen to his rank. He has therefor not been given the time to add devotional text and personal legends to the tabard. I think he as a whole turned out quite good He´s very light on diffrent colours and such also, I wanted a more uniform look for him, thats why all the metal is in boltgun, I was thinking about doing some of them in gold, but I think I will leave that for my next chaplain.





Next up is my brand new Stormtalon. another model I love, but in the case of this it´s in part more to battlefield excellence then the model it self, I really like the model, but it was not that fun to paint to be true.





it was a bit hard to get a good picture of the pilot, the clear plastic keept catching the flash a bit too good



A bit of a pic heavy post but I hope you like it.

Your highlighting is brilliant. This is one of the few times i've seen something bright in 40k and actually liked it.

Stormtalon looks great.

The chaplain is, like most of your mini's, very clean but whats up with the big patches of grey? Is it supposed to be environmental lighting catching the armour or what?

The patches of grey are the result of me trying out a new technique, it´s a bit more subtle then on the pictures, the flash made them stand out a bit more then they actually do. But I don´t think I will use that on any more models as it diden´t turn out quite as I wanted it to sadly...
