I think it is looking marvelous. The two squads at the top of the thread look great, also. Your highlighting and shadows look crisp and accurate with just enough fade to make it realistic. I can't wait to see this termie finished!

Hey everyone! Finished my Deathwing Sergeant and I'm very happy w/ the way it turned out. The Forge World shoulder pads are so detailed and adds great character to the miniature, making it stand out so much better than the vanilla Termis. I think w/ these guys, I will paint them one at a time rather than batch as I find I'm way more attentive to details when painting them one at a time. And I guess w/ the 1st Company, why the f$ck not? C&C welcomed as always guys.

Hello everyone! Finished my second Deathwing Terminator, this one is armed w/ Chainfist and Assault Cannon. I have to say that painting bone isn't as bad as I thought and thoroughly an enjoyable tone to work with. Hope you all like this!

1. Coat the area you want the decal with gloss varnish ('Ard Coat) a couple of times so it's smooth and the decal sticks better.
2. Soak the decal in warm water for 30 second or so.
3. Place the decal, dab away the excess water and immediately go over it with another coat of gloss varnish.
4. When the decal is dry, coat it with gloss varnish again a couple of times.
5. Go over the area with Purity Seal to take away the shine.

Take a look at my wolves if you want to see the results, but it looks great, you can't see the edges of the transfer and it looks almost like free-hand (and the closest I'll ever get as I'm rubbish at free-hand...)

Hope that helps
