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 + 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).
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.
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
