Hmm.. never thought of that, but you guys do have a point. Thanx.

I'll keep the color (added some sephia and got a better result giving it a more blended/fading color.. I start to love the washes) and will make the next one grey... and then I guess it will be a 'random' color..

Almost everything is done now, except the highlights of the backpack.
I will post the whole one when it's ready.


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

Well... My wife gave me some free time this afternoon and I manage to finish the painting of the last one.

Hopefully I'll get a more steady hand and smother painted lines before they are all painted... Close up it looks awfully..



The helmet and wings close up....


Comments? Anything goes and are appreciated.

That is fantastic. I love how his belt looks leather, I always just did it metallic. The details on the eyes are great as well. Well done.

Thanx.
In my head SW are a mix of ancient vikings and modern marines (rampage marines... but anyway) and there for the should have a lot of leather equipments...

I have not painted enough to show you guys yet, but are on my way painting 3 marines at the same time... doing them 1 and 1 will take forever the way/time I put on each. But what I did was ordering some thunder wolves from mythicast and hopefully they'll be exactly what I have been looking for... So thanx for the link in a earlier reply.

Yesterday I received the wolves I ordered.
The models are very nice with many details (though not as good as GW but still) but I am still somewhat disappointed. The models have holes (airbubbles) and also small balls of plastic here and there.... and it will take a lot of time cleaning those and filling the gaps with GS. So I can't recommend buying them if all of them looks like that.

Anyone else seen them in RL? Did I get a bad shipping?



Hopefully it will look just fine when I'm done with them and I will certainly enjoy painting them.

That's shockingly bad quality. What are all the little balls in amongst the fur? Are they just debris from the mold or are they part of the casting? If so I'd be sending them back by express post.

I can't imagine how they got there honestly... some of the balls are just lying there and can be removed with the hand (or by scalpel if they are between the fur)... other are fused and needs to be removed with knife or file. But as far as I can see they are NOT a part of the mold... more like bad handling of the plastic while preparing, molding and cooling.

They are molded in Singapore... and it seems a bit risky to send them back... so that is not an option (as I can probably save them with GS and paint) But I'll send them an email with pictures and ask them if they can send spare parts for the damaged ones.... (This is the risky business of ordering something from abroad) It would be bad business for them not to do this as I will def. NOT recommend them here for you guys on Heresy.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Your space puppies are looking nice mate especially the Rune Priest. I look forward to seeing more of your force roll out!

I am sorry to see that the Wolves you purchased were of substandard quality and I would have recommended that you send them back for a new batch. I do understand the fear of shipping them back to a company in singapore, but perhaps if you call the company and explain to them the issues hey may send you a new batch. I have had that happen with Forge World and GW on occasion. I can't see how it would hurt to try, because, in my opinion, those casts are completely unacceptable.

I will be following along with further progress on this log mate!

I emailed mythicast and they were very friendly in the conversation and explained about the quality check and such things and was very surprised that the quality-guy did not spot this..If this was the truth or not, I don't know, but they saw no problems in sending new ones... I guess I have to wait a few weeks more for the replacements but I AM going to get them..
*Happy Happy*

Family life has taken alot of my spare time (besides I started working again a week ago after been home with my son for 6 months) so I have not had the time to paint. All I have done is painting a few heads.


Comments? (2nd guy looks like a comedian, I know, but he'll do his job of slaying anyway)

This weekend was not about having much of any free time..
I did however manage to buy a couple of old models with missile launchers from a guy down at the local GW store. The models must had (at least) 14 layers of paint from before (ok.. maybe not that many, but alot of the details was not there as they should have) and a few of them were really old ones. But I picked 5 of the 7 I got where 2 of them have the old old ML tubes.

Anyway... Without any paint remover I manage to save them somewhat, and now they are at least of table top quality even though I plan to switch them later on with newer models. Maybe I spend 40 min for each marine.



You can see how they looked before the repaint.
What chapter is that??? Is that even a chapter?
