As said, I won't continue making them that way. I am thinking of more off a industrial look at the moment.

Tossidin, other than whats been mentioned already about the bases I think they turned out looking great. The Astropath however looks likes hes dancing "perhaps doing the Mumba?" witha smile on his face...lol!

Good job.

Don't know how I've missed this for so long, but there's some impressive work going on here! Well done bud!

Any chance for a run down of how you got the yellow and browns?

Keep it up!

Looking good overall.

The line in the centre of the skull's forehead looks off to me as there is not a large change of facing there; I think it would work better with the jagged overbrushing all the way across.

Very inspiring stuff, Tossidin! The yellow you've achieved suits imperial guards very well. In fact, I like it so much it put some ideas in my head about my own guard detachments for my Space Marines (damn you!!!). It also looks more promising to paint yellow with the new Citadel Colours (which I recently ordered but haven't received yet) so you might see me try it out soon (I'll be sure to point people here if I do).

For me, the one thing that lets the bases down aren't the choices of colour on them - rather the fact that the shapes on them doesn't convey the feel of mud. I don't have any good tips on how to achieve that effect that I've tried mysel but I would try something like if I was going to do it this.

Thanks again for all the nice comments!
Gotta appologize for lack of work done lately, haven't really had the time/motivation at the right time.
There is a tournament coming up in less than 2 weeks though, and this time I want to win the "best painted model" award. Theres motivation for ya. As for what model to paint, I have been thinking of a twc wolf lord conversion for quite some time. I listened to "thunder from fenris" and realised that the marines were fightning beside their wolves, not always on top of them. Got the ideas rolling, and when the plastic thunderwolves came out I just knew I had to make one.
Here is where I am at. Quite close to finished but have some touchups to do, like repairing the shoulder. I am no expert with green stuff, but I attempted to make a mountain/rock for the wolf to stand on (now no one can complain on lack of hight). It will have basing materials on top, but the sides may stay as they are.









And a picture of some fenrisians (who promptly finished of a 1 wound trygon after the battleleader failed to finish it), just to show what kind of basing material I will use:



All C&C is welcome. This will be a centrepiece for my army so I got to make sure it looks good (better than the canis model at least...).
Also, what colour should the wolf be? The lord is going to be painted codex grey into fortress grey with some subtle purple and blue washes in the resecces to bring out some blue tones in the grey. The base is bone/brown and the rock is... brown. I have been thinking white, but am open for suggestions!

Untill next time

Interesting. If what you have done with your guard transfers over to your wolves, they will def be something to be proud of.

Looking forward to seeing your next update!
