You still got a steal of a deal and you know it

For referrence , I originally offered the whole army for £350. No takers.

The vehicles went in dribs and drabs over a 3 month period for £200.

Cam's taken everything else,including extras that weren't in original bundle, for £250.

It's cool. Wish now I had seen the deal earlier. I am happy with my end of the deal. And I think he's right Nerdy, Not many people have enough to buy a massive army in a one'r. But a bunch of troop's or a squadron of tanks is different.

Interesting, thanks fellas

well, I'll pop up what i have and see what you think it would be worth both as a whole or as separate sections? there's more than i thought too!

here's a shot of everything assembled


I have for the force:

57 Guardsmen (27 assembled 30 clipped off sprue not assembled)
3 sentinels with flamers
10 custom Storm troopers
2 command squads
1 commissar
1 Sly Marbo
3 heavy weapon teams
2 Vendetta's
2 Leman Russ tanks
2 Punisher tanks
1 Devil Dog
1 Executioner
3 Chimeras

the Guardsmen have all MadRobot miniatures heads and Kromlech backpacks, I also have about 37 more backpacks and numerous more MadRobot heads and assorted Kromlech legs and plasma rifles from them too, as well as another Vendetta conversion kit.

Vendettas


example of a chimera and squad


executioner & devil dog


Punishers (one driven by Bruce Willis)


Russes


Marbo


Custom Storm troopers


Other Guardsmen clipped and organized

spare parts, guns, packs etc


I can get better pics if anyone needs them later?

should I put this up in the swap shop? the DCM swap shop? or ebay? not sure the best option for a decent result, I'll be interested to see what some of you think it's worth, should be interesting experiment anyway

and yep, I do still have the good 'ol Fleshies to paint and I'll never be rid of them! they've been the most fun and I've dedicated the DC Dread to my brother (r.i.p) so it's got that connection to me personally, one day I'll finish the company!

catch you soon

Ladies & Gentlemen and you guys

Sorry for being sort of brush absent lately! the last two weeks have been pretty hectic for me on my days off! but that's gonna change with holidays next week! today i did manage to find a couple of hours free to get some paint onto Fulgrim, you know how you sort of get to the point where you feel like you're not making progress even though you've been painting for ages? I felt like that with him today...until..... I reached the tipping point! and now I'm happy!

Yes, i got some more work on his face done! and i think i've done him justice? was hard as his eyes are close together which kinda throws the overall look, but I had a crack and i'm happy so far, I don't really know what else to do all bar a touch up or two! so it may be done overall I took the advice and darkened the overall look of him and his armour, so i bought it through to his face too and it works, he's not a good guy anymore so dark and beautiful was the aim!

the base features Iron Hands marines fallen at his feet, i've dumbed them down on purpose so not to overpower the figure but they look beaten and worn, and in doing so i may have found a way to make a polished black shiny armour? maybe I'll have to keep testing

SHUT UP DAMO AND SHOW ME YOUR PROGRESS!!!!


.... o.k











Hope you like him guys! should be done early next week!!

The purple looks great, and that gold is WOAH. I think the gems on his chest and sword hilt, and maybe some color on the handle and holster should be solid. And, you know, the cape. Really excited to see those final details bring him all together.

Oh, his eyes are jet black, btw. Should make them easier to paint anyways.

He is lovely, excellent job, and the purple is definitely improved. But not sold on super shimmery corpses; bit too clean maybe?

He's looking great, Damo. The gold looks great, and the slightly darker shade of purple looks much better. Face is great as well, particularly the use of different shades on his cheeks and lips.

Fantastic job on the face Also think the gems could do with being picked out, and think you may have dumbed down the iron warriors just a tad too much.

Thanks guys, just a quick fly by tonight! :-) I haven't really done his hair yet as i'm contemplating a few ideas! but I think I may have to just do it white and normal and see how it looks?

Ummm this is gonna sound stupid, but which gems on the sword and chest do you mean need colour? and what colour should I do?

I'll be adding some dirt over the IH's to battle weary them and probably add some line highlights to the armour.

his face is pretty much done after looking at it, just a black wash in the sockets should be good !

Pretty sure he means the gem that the eagle's holding onto (breastplate). I recon do it the same colour as the cloak.

Wow.

Fulgrim is looking swanktastic. And your ability to paint faces never ceases to amaze. The fact that you managed to pick out tongue, teeth and his lips in such detail is mind boggling. How you do it i'm not quite sure. But it looks bloody good. What I think really sets him off is the subtle stubble you've given him. Even the perfect primarch needs to shave occasionally.

The one thing that I don't like about the model is the pink on his cheeks. It looks more like he's applied rouge rather then him being hot and sweaty and puffed out. Honestly though, I think the only reason I noticed it was because of the close up picture. I doubt you'd notice it at tabletop range.

Thanks snrub, it's funny, I used the exact same methods as when i painted the Ork skin! just different colours I tend to think some people overthink when they paint faces, it's no different than armour or bases, and subtlety is the key, plus I like them to reflect a person as if they were real hence light stubble and flushed cheeks for battle etc...

Honestly though, I think the only reason I noticed it was because of the close up picture. I doubt you'd notice it at tabletop range.


It's actually more subtle than the last close up shows, but i had to get the pic that big to even show you I added it quite pink to reflect the sweat from battle, and also to mimic rouge! if i'm remembering the book correctly they ended up going all nuts for anything sensory and gilded/beautiful/hellish... and I can imagine his being slightly crazy applying makeup to beautify himself further as his mind twisted from normality! ?

I should ... NO I WILL have him finished within two days! I started my holidays for the week today and have to finish Fulgrim Gits Kans and BigH's bare heads then I can pour myself back into Flesh Eaters, although it's been so long I need to remember how to paint them lol

I am proud to show you the finished Fulgrim! He was a challenge, but a good challenge! I kinda got lost about 3/4 way through and wasn't sure if i was happy with the result I was producing for Whaley, but after a break for a week or so I was inspired to do the next steps and am glad I did! after about an hour or so back painting I got back into the groove and just couldn't put him down! everything seemed to fall into place for me and I was happy with my painting again especially when i kept putting him all together to see how it looked as a diorama! as you know it's not often I blow my own horn but I am proud of how he looks and I hope you guys like him too

The parts i like most would have to be the gold, I tweaked my own recipe and it seems to work even better for this model, a bit darker and richer i think the other part i really love is his face, I wasn't sure I could paint it and get it to look good because of the close together eyes but I think the skin tones are more the focus than his actual features? whatever the case, i like how it looks, i think it's beautiful and cruel just like Games Workshop

Well, I'll stop going on now and just pour a bunch of pics at you eh!








So, what do you think? I think I have Ferrus Manus next to do so if you've any ideas for bringing him to life I'd be more than happy to hear your thoughts!

Only complaint is you didn't upload to Dakka to see on the front page

Cape came out great, the red really sets him off. Glad you took the break and attacked it again head on. The final results really speak for themselves. Should be interesting to see Ferrus, who is tan and worn, almost the opposite. A whole new challenge.

Looking forward to seeing marines of many colors. Did you figure out what to do with the guard? Happy to bounce ideas around more with you on it.

Gotta know though, how'd you get the nice metallic black for the dead Iron Hands?
