Just thought I'd start a new project log to help motivate me to paint steadily, so without further ado... It's a Space Wolf riding a bear! Let me know what you think :)

If I can get the cash together, there are two other variations (one of the bears has cybernetic bits) then I'll be painting them in the same scheme so they can count as Thunderwolf Cav. Not sure that's the right size base for Cav though.

Looks good, not too sure of the color scheme. Looks kinda like my old orange orks, but not as gaudy but close. Still a good job though.
Thanks man, initially it was supposed to be a red scheme, but things tend to evolve while I paint heh.

When I get home from work I'll post a picture of the paint's I used in order of layer with some notes. Thanks for the compliment!

I used this range of paint's adding 1/1 ratios stepping from color to color after the initial base. Most was airbrushed and then the ghost tint was added to the armor plating last after...

...applying a base color and layers to the bear fur using this range in the same ratio fashion I applied the armor, but with my lightest layer of a creamy brown I purposefully over sprayed sparsely along areas of the edges of armor plating so that they would appear more yellow in the crevasses, rather than just orange, in order to give a nice smooth transition to the orange.



If you would like to see it being painted you can search Twitch for the user name 'Hellathos' and look at my recent videos. It was painted wholly on stream :)

Current project of fully converted Thousand Sons in early stages of painting.



Poor pictures but once I'm done with the airbrushing I'll take them off the corks and take better ones.

Ok, been slogging through to get these guys finished amongst a myriad of different projects and now, with the exception of painting some script and ringing the bases with paint, they are finally finished. Sadly, as an over critical painter striving to become better, I know that I've rushed this project to complete it and it shows; in the lack of highlights, edging, and an apparent over spray issue when trying to do osl with ghost tints. I tried a many new personal theories with this project and it has been a great learning experiment, both in the painting and conversion aspects, so overall I'm satisfied with them in their current state. Hope you enjoy them! Next project will come to the log much quicker :)

I love it. Buuut, can I make a suggestion? The blue spray on the weapons is just too similar to the rest of the armour. It makes the gun become lost in the rest of the model. Also, I like to see eyes painted in. Other than that, I think it's a fine job.

Thanks man, maybe I'll add a spot of white to it or something.

That makes two so BAM! Eyes are on the list of "Before it's complete I need to..." Thanks for the feedback guys!

Just a few pieces of terrain from the Macragge set that was excavated from the bowels of the sarlacc that is my closet, two days ago. Didn't have the patience to go to detailed with them, but I think they'll do :)
