I think a little uppdate is in order here.

I have been painting my scouts with sniper rifles on my days of from work and have now finished 2 of them.



I wanted the cloaks to look a bit diffrent from the usual painted camoscheme so I glued flock
on them. The first one I just glued flock on the whole but it looked a bit to much like he hade green blanket on him so on the next one I simulated my bases even more and I think the result was much better.


It dosen´t show that much but the faces is painted scorched brown witch spots of green. I don´t want flesh there as that would spoil the stealthy look of them. And again, I had to paint pupils so thats why the eyes are all white.



C&C are more then welcome. I would specialy like to know what you think about my cloaks.

Until next time

I am not sure how I feel about the flock on the cloaks, but it is more of a personal opinion rather than one on your execution of the technique. I will agree that the one with the mixed cloak looks better in my opinion as it breaks up the green. I really like the green armor as well as the way that it compliments the color you have chosen for the pants. Nice shading and highlighting on the model as a whole! Good looking work once again Meldon.

Its been a while since I updated this but stuff happening at work have kinda slowed down my painting work. Hopefully thats all done now and I can power up the painting arm again

My scouts have actually been almost done for a while, all they missed was the last finishing touches.
I have played some games with them now and I liked how they turned out, they look much better on a tabletop then just alone on a white backround like this.

And for a little WiP of my February army challange squad. The sergeant is finished, the middle guy is about 3/4 done and the last one just has the first layer of blue on him. After im done with these 3 guys it´s just 7 more to go. yay....


C&C are welcome, Always nice to try new ways of getting better

Thanks Midge, I really appreciate that you like my armour since it´s quite hard work to get them to that stage. I took the time last night when I was painting and realised that I put about 2,5 hours just on the blue parts.. That means it will take me around 25 hours for just the blue parts on this whole group.. And I´ve gota do it all in just one month, ugh...

Glad you like them, linning all those edges with lightning blue can be a bit backbreaking at times. Always help to know that people like the endresult at those times

Thanks! there is one problem with them though, they tend to blend in with the tabletop a bit too good. I´m afarind I will just overlook the entire group one day and forget them on the tabletop

I know how you feel mate. For the my Tyranid color scheme I have the same problem. It takes me 5 layers for the white on the skin, and 4 layers on the carapace colors. With some drying time in there it takes forever. You should know though that it is well worth the effort and the time you put in as your models are really fantastic.

I think you have done an Awesome job Meldon. Your Scouts and Marines have a very sharp and crisp look about them. The Cloaks on the scouts are def a new look and I think the second one really does look pretty freaking sweet. Good job man, +Rep
