First of all let me say welcome to Heresy online.

My comments on the dread are around the right hand power fist that looks converted. Have you used GS on this? If so you need to mix it together more so its green. But I like the face and the insignia you have placed on the hull.

The other model looks nice, although the power sword looks like paint is too thick along the top edge. Out of interest what colours have you used to paint him?

Thanks for everything. Yes its green stuff that has gone bad long ago probably but I didn't want to see it go to waste and it still works, sort of. I am pretty cheap and money is very tight so better use than waste. Yes the sword didn't turn out the best :( it was always the part I was holding, but yeah my bad ;)

The color scheme on The Sanguinor

All of the paint is mixed 1:1 with distilled water to better coverage and better tackiness to the primer and model.

Armor and jump pack
Primed white
mithril silver on the armor avoiding wings, gems, etc...
three washes of grpyhonne sepra
bleached bone first highlight
skull white final highlight
one final wash of gryphonne sepra to tie it all in

Wings
Primed white
three washes of gryphonne sepra same as above
bleached bone first highlight
skull white final highlight
one final wash of gryphonne sepra to tie it all in

Gems
scab red across it all
red gore on the upper half
blood red on the top most
spot of skull white on the very tip or top

Purity Seal Paper
bleached bone
wash of devlan mud
skull white while trying to leave bleached bone on the edges
I haven't quite gotten the right ink pen to do writing or scribbles on it just yet

Purity Seal
snot green
scorpion green highlight

The saddest part is with my most current army list that I am working on, it doesn't have any fluff for me to want to field him with the army :(

Its hard to visualize the colour scheme. Cant wait to see some pics though. As for the fluff... well you can do what ever you like. There is no wrong answer. write what you want in order to make it work!

The paint job is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Plus most of the work just comes with the washes and then waiting around until its completely dry to start the next step. Here are some more pics though to let you get a better look of. You are right though but I have another army that is much smaller but fits with The Sanguinor, Dante, two squads of Sanguinary Guard and two Sanguinary Priests. Otherwise the list I plan to field in an upcoming rogue trader he has no place but I am still happy with how he turned out and it will be a similiar paint job on the Sanguinary Guard and Dante when I get to that point.

I would suggest that you clean up the sword and defenitly include him in your arm as its a brilliant centre piece model.

I really think my eyes are failing me... lol that picture is still hard to make colours out. Is it just me / my comp that is making that background orange? the more I look at this the more it frustrates me. I actually cant make the pics out and their colours all too well.

I will find a way!!!!

Its the combination of the cardboard background, lighting, and the camera none are that good but it works well enough I guess... sorry though, I will be putting a light grade grit of sandpaper to the sword in hopes of cleaning up that flaw, with touchups afterwards. Still so much to do, aggravatingly slow... But here are some more pics of the dreadnaught. I am still finding it hard to bore out barrels on bolters, sometimes it comes out right other times not so much :( but anyways, yeah. Thanks again for all the helpful comments, compliments, I hope to keep myself busy as best I can.

You planning on fielding any sanguinary guard or death company in your flesh tearers force? I'm currently trying to figure out a paint scheme for the sanguinary guard, don't want them gold, trying to mute them a bit. I was thinking either silver or deep red, any thoughts?

My current army list has Death Company although I do have Sanguinary Guard that I am currently working on. But if you want ideas check out this link.

http://www.thedarkfortress.co.uk/oratorium/oratorium_mortarion_3.htm

I think it might help you get an idea going around the gold and on to more interesting paint schemes. Personally though with the Sanguinary Guard being the truest and purest of heart after they're Primarch Sanguinious. I am sticking to the gold and once I get to that point again (I had a squad of Sanguinary Guard painted up but didn't like how they were turning out so I stripped them and is in the process of doing subtle tweaks to them). But yeah, hope the link gets you in the right direction.

Almost finished a stormraven, only waiting for the land raider crusader conversion pack for the hurricane bolter sponsons, twin-linked assault cannons, and a multi-melta to add to an existing multi-melta to combine and convert into a twin-linked multi-melta. Beyond that only a few more armor plates to add to the front, grapples to hold the dreadnaught in the back, the weapons above, after that, it will be modelled and assembled, then comes the primer and painting, etc... After that not much has been done but there is still plenty more to do. That list being 10 more assault marines on foot, a rhino, and 10 Death Company.
