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 :(

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.

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.

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.

Thanks :) I think I have put together a winning army list and so far getting everything ready and put together to be able to field this army list that I am working on. Things are still coming along, I will get pictures on here tonight of the things that I have had progress on. After that there is still more models to assemble, including 10 assault marines on foot, 10 Death Company, a rhino, stormraven, etc... I will continue to keep all of you informed and post my progress :) thanks again for the kind words, and encouragement ;)

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.

Here are the pictures of my stormraven conversion, its still a work in progress but I think its shaping up quite nicely. Still missing its weapons until my GW order comes in but for now, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

More pictures of the assault marines both with jump packs and on foot, plus Gabriel Seth. All have the first layer on they're bases, been primed, the squads on foot have they're meltaguns while the two squads with jump packs have not yet had they'res glued on yet. But yeah, this is what I have done so far. Much more to come still...

The inspiration came after seeing another conversion done with a land raider, I didn't like it because of both the look (being a bit too bulky), that and the armor on the stormraven is 12 not 14 so the thought just came to me and I started working from there. Thanks :)

That is where the twin-linked assault cannons will go, while on the bottom (which has the same hole and such) is where the twin-linked multi-melta will go, and on the sides where the rhino doors would've been is where the hurricane bolter sponsons will be.

The painting will be a long ways off sadly, the rogue trader that I plan on attending is coming up fast. What I am planning on is to have everything assembled, modelled correctly, based with the bases being completed, painted, sand, wash, etc which will meet the 3 color minimum and I then won't be rushed to paint the army and can take my time on it. Meanwhile on the rhino's, baal, dread, and stormraven to paint what I can to satisfy the three color minimum.

For now finishing up assembling the last assault squad, its rhino, and the ten Death Company. I'll let you know how progress is coming along ;)

Guess what came in today... Land Raider Crusader Conversion kit! :) and so here are the bits magnetized and rocking to go! The bits haven't been primed yet hence the off grey compared to the rest of the model but not to worry, it shall be done. Added a bit of stuff, small rocks, etc... to the base as well as most of my other models. Still trying to work out a list that can take on Mephiston and more and still haven't found a winning combination yet. Still working on that and came up with another list which I will give it a go again this Thursday and see what becomes of it. Thanks again for the comments, words of encouragement and praise, and so I thank you... Still plenty more to accomplish, finished assembling another assault squad and its rhino or its drop pod, whatever I may decide to have it be deployed in. Death Company are still being assembled as I still cannot make up my mind if it is worth it running Death Company or some other unit, such as Sanguinary Guard, Honour Guard, etc... but so far... still very much a work in progress. Next update will be Thursday night or Friday. Thanks again to all and to all a goodnight ;)

I do not sorry, the best I can tell you is that I cut the rhino just after the side doors, I kept the top panels a bit longer so that I could use the existing panels to glue onto the top of the valkyire and then went from there to fill the gaps where I could and putting a few pieces of cut plastic here and there for the larger gaps and then green stuff around it and such. Sorry though, wish I had...

Remove the treads? There are no treads... Unless you mean the contour of the rhino where the treads would've been. I could but it would change the look of it too drastically and then it would make the hurricane bolter sponsons stick out all that much more. Even with where they are now I am debating on whether or not its too much. I like it but it is a bit much.

I'm with you on that one Varakir, I am still playing with the idea of possibly taking off the air intakes and shaping them to the fold of the wing, but I'm not sure if that will fly or not in my mind. I'm up for suggestions if anyone comes up with a plan in that regard. I still want to try to cut down the size of the hurricane bolter sponsons and see if I rig up something to tuck them closer to the body thus freeing up the air intakes and keeping the profile streamlined in proportion to the rest of the model.
