My finished carab Culln for my d.i.y chapter, a little tidying up but overall very pleased, tried to blend on the power sword to give it a glow effect, didnt work so I'll just repaint that standard metal color, and I swill have to sculpt my d.i.y symbol on him, but that can wait for another day.

I love dreadnoughts. This is gonna be good.
So do I, this is a mk 4 venerable, I hope I do him justice, I'll magnatize him but for the entry he will have multi melta and c.c.w with flamer, next month may well be a plastic iron clad gathering dust or termies.

Loving the purple. What a great colour!
That particular shade is Army Painter Alien Purple, darkened with their purple wash, I have become a fan of their stuff.

Well here he is finished, well sort off, a bit of tidying up, took slightly longer than anticipated due to some repainting. The mechanical parts were painted gun metal and washed with dark tone wash, but I repainted those parts mechanicus standard grey then a couple of coats dark tone, then a very light dry brush of gun metal for (in my opinion) a more "real world" looking finish. The furniture on the multi melta is done in German field green, all the weapons in my army will done this way to give a "real world" feel. As always any comments and criticism welcome, but note I'm kind of at the limit of my ability here!

A little plog up date, started work on the "ghillie" suits for my scout snipers, which I started months ago, no excuses just bone idleness, bad Oldman bad. Anywho, I cut some gauze and tacked it to the shoulders and top of the back, then I distressed it and cut it. I'll add head pieces and more "ghillie" later then thin down some paint which will be absorbed by the gauze and help stick it to the mini.

Edit: previously completed mini far right for comparison.

I quite like those camo cloaks! What did you use for the material?
I used 4ply medical gauze, You can get it in any pharmacy, a little goes a long way, I have also seen a guy cameoflauge a Tau using small squares of kitchen roll dipped in thinned paint and then layered onto the model.

Most people seem just to paint the cloaks or add flock to the cloaks, but in my previous life I had to dress like that on occasion so I wanted something a little "real world" looking:p

A little blast from the past! My first 40k love, were the Dark Angel's. I'd like to think my painting has come on a bit since then, being a little bit on the poorer side of life back then I had few paints and one brush. I really love the RT era marines, the weapons were scaled really well, the bolt pistols would actually fit in the holsters, and the power fists look like you could swing it! This little squad also has my very first conversion, the bolt pistols in the sergeants hands were moved from the right hand to the left so they could have the power fists. There is also a sergeant who came "free" with White Dwarf, yeah you read that correctly "free" with White Dwarf! I am gonna strip these and give them the care they deserve like trim mold lines etc. Hope you liked the little trip down memory lane.

I had a box of those guys, and my copy of Rogue Trader is in the attic in a ziplock bag. I must admit I was never a fan of them. I always thought the proportions were a bit off and the poses awkward. Nice work on the banner though.
Yeah the poses are all squatting for a poo to be fair. I had very few marines, the only other guy I knew who was into warhammer was a few years older than me, and moved onto other hobbies of the xx chromosome type, the loser! The banner my friend is actually a cut out from White Dwarf. I never had Rogue Trader and unbelievably binned all my original warhammer fantasy battle books years ago, no one in my area that I knew had the faintest interest in it or at least never admitted it to it, I was a solo nerd. Only got back into the hobby when I went to Iraq and found White Dwarf on sale in the Naafi, a sure sign from the gods to ammend my wayward ways

I have quite a few mk5 torsos, which I attached to the mk6 legs and beakie heads gathering dust because at the time proper mk6 were unavailable, and as I'm a little ocd I wanted all my power armour to match. So I tried a little scraping to convert the mk5 to mk6 torso, just a rough draught but I think looks close enough, and as a wise man once said, "it only has to look good 3 feet away!"

5 man tactical squad from this month's apc, was meant to be six but I ballsed up the Sgt, so for now, the Sgt will just armed with a bolter. The tactical squads will have no heavy weapons but will have a specialist weapon depending on roll. This squad has a lovely forge world plasma gun which I didn't do justice painting, just can't perfect that glow effect, but I really like plasma guns so there will be a few more!

I am really impressed with the work on the scouts. Would love to hear how you created the camo netting. I am always drawn to scouts that are not in full colors of their regiment or chapter. They would stand out in that cover!

Its gauze used for wound dressing, cut into strips tacked onto the mini, then watered down paint on the gauze, which also helps stick it to the mini

The purple and white really is striking. Looks great. Are the bolters going to get some Bolt gun metal?
I think I will, I wanted a utilitarian real world look with the furniture on the weapons green and metal parts black, but as you can see in the pic it very dark. The boltguns are not glued in as I was toying with the idea of either converting bolters or buying umbra pattern ones
