Hello.
Here are a few pics of my WIP Marines.They all started off as a little sideline to my main Chapter....especially after reading Salamander :wink:
As said,they were a sideline and not really properly prepared....read mould lines..... :grin:
Let me know what you think!! :)






Sorry for the quality of the pics,they were taken using my Moby.

Very nice models man!
Yellows hard to paint, which makes it even more impressive :D
I hated the Marines Malevolent (due to the Salamanders book :p ) and would love to see these models in a game against me :) looks amazing!

All I could suggest really is add some more squad markings...Oh and add some damage, as the Marines Malevolent are like scavengers and wear old armour, as said in Salamander, so add some damage and other stuff like that :D

Keep the photos coming!

I don't know what it is, but i really love that yellow. Nice job.

Are the chest details done in silver? The torsos look unfinished but i'm inclined to say that's the pics.

Very nice yellow. I just recently tried to do the Marines Malevolent with my RT Beakies, after reading Salamander, but I couldn't get the yellow to come out right. So sad.:cray: Back to the Space Sharks scheme I guess. Again, nice yellow.

Hello Varakir,thanks for the comments!! :grin:
The bodies are the plain looking ones with the skull in the middle,one of them has the skull painted the other 2 need the torso finishing...pics arent that clear!!
I have tried to make the yellow look all washed out.....old paint touched up with new that doesnt quite match sort of thing.....yet to do some battle damage as well.
The look i am after for my Malevolents is a more up to date looking Marine....so i have based them after they have got all the new Mk7 armour and weapons off of the salamanders goody 2 shoes mob. :wink:

Thanks everyone else for their kind comments!!

I don't know what it is...but I really like them! Just something about them I can't quite place...They look great mate!

Oh and you said you dowloaded the decals from another site...just a question, how did you do that? Did you have to have some sort of special paper for printing them off or something :S sorry if I'm being a fool I have no idea :grin: lol

I downloaded the file from Bolter&Chainsword, http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?showtopic=143757

I used Decal paper from these people.... http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/products-Inkjet-water-slide-decal-paper_151.htm

As for the downloading part just follow the instructions!

nice, like the yellow, came out quite well considering it is hard to paint. I'll keep a close eye on this!

Mooooooore!!!!

Hello.....back again!! ;)

Been working on an Apothacery for the Malevolents,i have been working on a different theme using MK6 Corvus armour and adapting the Mk6 beakie to take the MK7 Apoth helmet bling. The GS needs smoothing down and tidying up.....what do you think?




Here is another Marine i have been mucking about with,tried to make it look like he is really getting some distnace with the grenade. Also undecided on the plasma gun or flamer.....thoughts?



C&C welcome!!

How exactly do you use green stuff? I've barely even heard of it lol
And where did you get the helmet and shoulder pads for Vinyar from? Only criticisim for vinyar, and a minor one at that, is that the name Vinyar looks like Vin Yar, two different words, so maybe just put the letters closer together. :grin:

Keep up the good work (y)

LOL.....yeah the vin....yar bit...well he is a bit posh like!!! :laugh: That has been put right since the pic was taken!!
The helmet and shoulder pads are from the command squad box.

GS....just mix the 2 compounds together [blue & yellow....hey presto green] and away you go a moulding and sculpting.....its fooking hard tho....well i find it hard.
:wink:

One thing I would suggest is for the metal areas. They look like they have been drybrushed and it detracts from the look of the model. I would suggest you paint the boltgun metal on fully and smoothly and then use washes like badab black and devlan mud to darken them to where you want.

Nice job!!!!!!!!!!!!! the one devastator from the last page with the banner looked like he was marching into battle.

I agree with you about the green stuff i did some the other day only to make a cool mohawk and a beard that looks like it has something stuck in it.
