Thanks for all the great input and compliments, it is greatly appreciated, and keeps motivated to continue.
Zxyogi, do you have nay pictures of them on your log? Gotta check it out, maybe it could be of any help / inspiration
Khrone forever, I can try and show how I do it when I paint the next guardsman. Tohugh in written form it is:
Tallarn flesh
Tallarn flesh + bleached bone on raised areas
Tallarn flesh + more cleached bone on the extreme edges
Ogryn flesh wash to brign it together.
It is quite simpel if you have a small brush and a little steady hand. The wash works magics :p

Anyway, in the hopes of this log not reaching page 150 anytime soon, I thought I would show a little update on the company command squad. I am trying to make them a little original with some minor conersions, and I try to catch a "theme" with each model. Ideas are welcome, though these guys are primed and ready to be painted (hopefully tomorrow).

Company commander:





The idea is an image of a commander who won't give up just because of some "minor" injury, and who will keep on fighting on the frontline.


Meltagun Veteran:



I wanted to catch the theme of "severly wounded with gun still pointing forwards". I wrecked his helm at the left tempel, and also cut a wound on his head to show the resulting (luckily) "minor" wound, I may paint some blood streaks running from it.

Regimental advisor (Astropath):



I wanted to make it look like he is really lost in his own thoughts, "oblivious" of the battle around him.


Hopefully you can see them with some paint on in the nearest future. I have decided to continue with the same scheme and making the brown darker and more interesting. Anyway, C&C on the minor "conversions" is appreciated.

Untill next time

Quick update!





Finished the brown, the rest is just basecoated. What do you think of the brown as it is now? I dunno if I should tone it down a little with some ogryn flesh, or if the yellow will draw some attention away from the extreme highlights when done. Guess I will just have to find out when they are finished.

I think the high contrast brown works well with the yellow.

I am with Dave. The brown looks much better now, it fits with the yellow much nicer than the muted tones did.

Minor update:



Now you can see how the yellow meshes with the brown. I quite like it now, thanks for all the input that helped me!
Also, I have decided to not go with brown bases. I am thinking grey bases, with some light green in the cracks. Will see how that idea turns out.
That's it for now, cya laters

Much better! More work in the long run, but in the end it pays off! Well done. Your idea for the bases should be a good one as the brown would have been to much. Now you will only need to repeat this process another 60-90 times...hehehehe!

Keep up the good work!

Ok, they are finally done! I am not 100% happy with them, but they work
The bases are experimental, still don't know how I wan't to paint them. Keep in mind that the green on the grey one doesn't nearly stand so much out in real life.

Astropath:





Close up of the skull, quite happy with it, especially since I haven't painted any bone in ages!



Melta veteran
Got a paint smudge on the right shoulder, really annoying but hey, I can only blame myself! Oh, and I suck at painting blood :p






Close up of the face:



C&C appreciated!

Untill next time
