Hey guys, just a quickie wip here. I need some input on choises of colours and stuff, if you would be so kind.









1: Colour of the sword. I am thinking hazard stripes of black and yellow to break up the colours some (going with a yellow chest eagle). Thoughts?
2: Purity seals. Green wax good idea?
3: Purple, green or red gems?
4: What kind of baseing theme would you like to see on an army (model for the time being i guess) painted like this?

Thanks for your time, c&c is as always welcome

I think the yellow/black hazard stripes on the swords would look pretty good. I also like the little bits of battle damage here and there, nice touch!

Applied with a steady hand it could look very good.

With red as a main colour green accents could look very good

Red could easily get lost in the armour. If you have green seals I would go with purple gems.

I prefer the look of Space Marines on rock/ash/urban bases to vegetation. Asphalt would look good without stealing focus form the model.

Thanks for the nice comments

Sadly I decided to scratch the angels at the moment, rather going back to guard so I can make a detachment to ally my space wolves into battle!

So I finished my company commander last night:

Just a quick wip of how I think I will paint my chimeras

"The pride of Caspar"




It was bought pre primed, so you may be able to see a little stuff stuck beneath the primer. I didn't care to strip it as it is my test vehicle anyway, and it seems to be doing fine.
I may repaint the top hatch brown, I am not quite sure yet.
Input is welcome!

Till next time!

Added more yellow as the the "local" people on the norwegian forum were quite certain there were too litle yellow. Also added a wash, haven't cleaned up or anything yet. Thoughts?

I feel it looks better with a more even yellow/brown level.

Gotta agree with Dave on that.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Painted a model in the spce wolves scheme I have been planning for over a year but never got to try out. Quite happy with it, I like them being kinda light grey (though the picture makes him lighter than he really is).
I used both purple and blue wash before going over with devlan mud to try and keep a little "bluish" on the model. It worked some places but on most of it I screwed up and painted too heavily over it.
Lacks company markings (Kjarl Grimblood) and basing, otherwice pretty much finished. Thoughts?







Bad light but just for reference
