--These models will not be wodnerful, this is my first army I have actually painted, so you will now be watching my progress through my painting-- I also am learning how to take good model photos.

(below)This is my first painted model, ever. Paint is a bit thick, with spots missing color.You can kinda make out red on his gun and on the gravel. Its from where he bludgeoned a poor cultist.
<Here youcan kinda see the freehand chapter logo im working on. (Again, my termie isntdone)

This is my first time doing flesh, and my second model ever.
<My first Terminator. About my 5th model. He isnt done yet.

My third model. He is the guy i needed info on for leather/green cloaks.
<My first "Dirty" model.
The back.
<My first sergeant.

The only 5 Tac Marines i have done, in a squad.
After my first termie is done, i'll do my Chappy.

Thats it for now, folks. I plan to update this as i make any progess. Keep viewing! :wink:

i like the scheme, its good that you're aware of your limitations, and i look forward to seeing you come on in leaps and bounds.

my one piece of advice, undercoat black. even for that scheme. the extra effort is well worth it. plus astronomican grey makes it fairly simple. also, wastch the bits in between armour plates, do you want that black? break up the white a little..

a nice 1:15 ratio of black/glaze would go nicely over that white. Then use the white again to touch up. All in all very good use of color... i like them.

How do you go about making/applying that?

in that case, that is some awesome white.

as far as 22's advice, i did a similar thing on the Hands of Dorn. water down black in and apply it carefull to the recesses. i'd do that all over the white corners. just be careful.

Nice dude - I wasn't sure when I saw the B&C painter pic but now I've seen the models I'm a fan.

Really likeing the termie color scheme. They are really going to stand out aganist the rest of the force - just like they should.

For first models Anph, you got some nice shit going on there. I agree with Tor, looking forwards to seeing how much you improve with each mini.

Thanks all!

Tor, is there a specific pic you did that to that i can see as an example?

I wish i could take better, more detailed pictures. Then i could better show you the force weapons/ NMM i did on the chest eagle.

Question: How should i paint my Chappy?

I will NOT paint him black. Sorry fluff-nazis, i wont do it.

I am open to ideas to incorpotate black, though.

As you see--im primarily working with Skull White, Dark Angels green, and Goblin Green. Gold goes on hands and chest eagles only.

Yeah. Thats a good paint job for your first few models. I swear they look better than my first model. But as you mentioned youself, You need to thin the paint down. I'll post a Tutorial on doing white armour over black undercoat if you want.

Kepp up the effort.

all my finished tac marines. check their yellow. the black lines are watered down black ink applied to the recesses..

Question: How should i paint my Chappy?
how about one black arm and shoulder pad? i saw this done on a dark angels libby once, green armour with one blue arm. looked ace.

Well for your first army this is actually looking very good.

Also really like torealis' idea for the chaplain, should still give him that sinister chaplain feeling but still clearly belonging to your legion.

Here is my firstfinished termie.

On him, i experimented with NMM, highlighting, inks, and freehand
I had a few problems--when i experimented with ink, i didnt think it would make the armour so glossy.

Also--the varnish i used (or misused :? ) came out a bit glossy.
Also--Here he has splotches on his face? I swear that isnt on the model. I dont know what that is..?




Here is the W.I.P. scout. (You can see how my paint is being thinned, i have much better and smoother coverage here.) On him, ill try fancy eyes and I will being trying to do a cloak well by paying attention to highlights and shadows. Bloodhound is going to help me with a tutorial there. (Hurry!) :D

inks are ace! i love inks and i like glossy armour.

the painting is certainly coming along in leaps nd bounds, the termie is really clean. What i would say is avoid NMM until you are an amazing painter. theres nothing wrong with the metallic paints, tin bitz/then gold/gold then silver is a fine 3-4 layer for good gold.

also, on the termies face, use watered down black ink to bring out the lines.

with the white, you undercoated black right and worked up? do you use astronomican grey? if so, you should leave some on in the recesses and highlight up to white. i would show you what i meant with a cloak of min, but i have n camera.
