Went back and put some shadows onto the Terminator and gave my first shot at using the blending technique on the claws. Critique?





Got some more paint today, hopefully the next activity will be a full squad so I can start getting these guys done.

I have to say, i am very impressed how much your painting has come on in the space of 3 pages, you have taken on board alot of C&C and your models look good for it. I can't wait to see the Army finished.

Keep up the good work.

I would Rep ya but not able to yet

Thanks feckwit.

Currently, my projects are on hold until I can get a decent case for them as every time I game with them they are coming back scratched up. The dwarfs are getting some much needed attention, but as soon as I've got the funds for the case, which might be a while, I'll be back to painting the marines. Thanks much for the feedback and critique all!

This is the 'I'm still alive' post.

Some stuff I've been messing around with:


Speeders still not highlighted, but at least they aren't as bad as they were.

Picked up a technique for lightning, let me know what you think. Also, converted a Typhoon launcher into a Cyclone launcher. Not finished painting yet, but progress is progress I suppose.

Only advice I have is:

Give those lightning claws a watered down, blue wash. It'll remove the harshness of the white.

And

I'd touch up the edges of armour plates (like shoulder pads in particular) with white. It'll remove the pastiness and slab like nature of the ivory colour (this is a fault of the colour, not you).

I also strongly recommend you undercoat in Black. I know you're then painting light colours, it just does the job of creating shadow in recesses you miss/can't reach.

Alright, will do the next chance I get. I'm gonna be out of reach of the minis for a few days as I'm out of town for a little bit, but as soon as I get back I'll get to it. Do you mean like a white highlight type touch up? Black would be a good idea, I'll try it on the next set I get, which should be... Jan/Feb ish maybe? Anyway, I'll get to work on them more with shadows and whatnot after I get back and get that Grudge Thrower done for the Painting Challenge.

Thanks for the reply. BTW, love your avvy.

Like people said , great improvement in the space of 3 pages! keep on practicing ! On the termis, i was more liking the red blending than the lightning. If you keep the lightning i would try to blend them a lil bit more the white with so light blue ( well imo ).

keep bringing stuff mate !

Will do ^_^ I'll post pics after I get the blue wash on it and we'll see if that helps. If not I'll go back and re-introduce the layers that the white kinda covered a bit.

Alright, I went ahead and did both the claws and hammers with a wash to tone it down a bit, someone said I overdid the lightning on the hammers so I went with the wash there too, and this is the result.
