well, granted this is the only photo i have and it's not the greatest quality, but it'll hopefully give you all a rough idea of my all drop infantry guard army!



the sentinel's camo pattern is a combination of light dry brushing followed by layering to brighten the yellow... all-in-all about 2 days of work, but i'm quite happy with it as most people think it's acutally air brushed!
oh, and a yummy timbit for anyone who firgures out which uk studio member's gaunt is decorating the base!:D (and no it didn't make him mad, it ironically made him laugh...)

photo is care of a friend as i sadly do not own a working digi cam...

cheers!

Looking good, always good to see some footsloggers instead of the ever
overdominating armoured companies. The highway bases really work well
with these guys!

actually the highway bases are simply a cheap way of getting around the gw store policy of 100% finished models!!! the real bases take roughly 3 hours or so of work not including the drying time of the glue layers...

sadly though, you don't get to see the guardsmen's actual camo pattern in this photo... (a bugger too because it takes again about 2-3 hours/model just for the cammo alone!)
but basically it's;
- graveyard earth basecoat.
- ink wash of 2:2:1:1 flesh ink/chestnut ink/dark angels green/chaos black
- graveyard highlight
- layered 'blotches' of desert yellow
- larger 'spots' of chaos black w/smaller 'spots' of bleched bone in the center.
worth the effort though :) they really look the part when playing on cities of death themed tables!

btw, i hate treadheads! deep striking flamers is much more fun!!!
cheers!

How did you do the bases? Is that just white and yellow lines painted straight on the bare base?

Is that a flame effect on the blurry guy in the front-right? Can we see another picture of him?

It's a good looking army. I especially like how you've single-based the heavy weapons teams. I may end up doing the same myself; I haven't quite decided yet.
