So here's a test model for a death company unit led by Astorath the Grim. The reason for the coloring is behind Astorath's fluff, he would kill any death company that would become too crazed by the black rage. So this would be a unit of death company that he killed before they got too crazed. Enjoy.

Thanks! Its actually Astronomican Grey which gives it a slight blue tint when it dries, so that gives it a kinda ghostly look I guess, should have a second one finished by tonight I'll post him up.

This is nice, What i particularly like is; When people do White marines, They have a tendancy to just paint them white, and they end up very 2d, Flat looking, whereas you've managed to sustain some depth in there, making it look astronomically more impressive, And with White, you have to make sure all the details are clean, Because if you accidently go over the edge, it's incredibly clear that it's a mistake; Which is equally impressive.

Good work, Good clean finish.

And the bases look nice, I don't know whether that's purposely done or not, but it looks effective enough! :}

Gah mold lines!!

The paint is nicely done and the scheme works well for sure but dude you NEED to get rid of the mold lines before you paint your models. The best paint in the world will look terrible if there are mold lines on the model.

Mold lines fixed, my buddy lent me his 'mold line remover' and it worked real nicely, gotta pick one up lol, thanks for pointing it out heh

On a side note I'll probably finish 5 of these guys than take a break and work on Astorath then finish off the squad.

Hey all, sorry I have'nt been posting up, I haven't been painting much since classes started but I've been cleaning up the models a bit, when I get a chance I'll paint up Astorath and the remaining 5 death company models.

By 'mold line remover' do u mean file? lol

(This made me chuckle!)

Have some rep. I think these look great I tried to do something similar (not the same color) but im glad yours came out looking a lot better then mine!

Keep up the work, but remember... School First! lol

Cheers,
