Hello, hello! I wasn't doing anything Nerd related today but ended up 'just priming' some things..... and then you know how it goes "Well if i've got the stuff out i may as well do that bit more...." so I really got some paint down to start the Zone Mortalis tiles

first I used The Army Painter Plate metal primer to spray all the flooring areas without the walls being touched as it would've melted then i used old airbrushy and sprayed primer black over the walls, when dried i grabbed the light grey green and roughly sprayed them all over then mixed in some 'sand' to lighten the mix then chucked in some white to give the middle of the panels a squirt, not entirely sure how else to detail the actual wall panels now? ideas people?

no more words left so pic time eh!

a pile of tile

and now some normal images






so next I'll do the lights on the bottom of the walls with a nice yellow glow and probably airbrush a more worn colour over the metal flooring?

Some place far away... Yes that'll do.

That ZM board is looking rally good Damo. It's gonna look amazing when it's done.

And the Carcharodons are coming along swimmingly as well. A full force of them will look ace.

Thanks again for the comments guys! I was going to airbrush a wash over the whole lot of the tiles but I ran out of time today but I ran out of time for a good reason! yep, I finished the Shark troops! and they look good!, well, I like the look anyway! the best bits I like are the tribal marks on the armour I haven't taken pics of every one but hopefully Whaley can just let you know what they're like when he gets them!

here's the lot of the boys


and some of the markings on the helmets

a few shots of some individuals





I also rather excitedly started two rhinos for my own force


So, what do we think?

Damo, fantasrtic work on the lot of these guys!! Totally bad ass looking dudes. You nailed that carcharadon scheme, which is no surprise and the reds jump out nice and warm in the midst of black grey and bronze. Power sword looks real cool too. Interesting effect. Molten. Ill have to try that someday. ANYwho, great job man. Makes me wanna grab my brush and paint. You inspire me brother!
Happy for whale, though you shouldve put a green base rim on one, cuz he deserves it.

You need to unplug the tanks , they are glowing hot

The space sharks are great as well, excellent freehand. I think they need a really laid back member of the squad who wears flowered lays and has a turtle icon on his helmet. He can be the chaplain and keep everyone in a fervor by being sooooo over the top mellow.

Whatever his real name is he can insist on being called "chaplain dude"

I think that you and I bebop both have similar skills in regards to certain models and ideas which is probably why we both fawn over each others painting but i really do love your chipping!

Haha, I find it amazing that people can write, so well at such a yiny scale, and you deserve to have one of them named after you! The freehand tribal markings are truly outstanding, how did you get your hands to stay so steady?

Also the turtle is called Crush, dude Crush!! My wee man loves Finding Nemo!! But always makes me skip the very beginning.

Awrsome Charcarodons, the thing the really sets them apart for me is the Maori style freehand. People don't always try that on their sharks.

Indeed. Excellent work. The freehand is really what makes them for me. I like the ZM board as well. It's much bigger than it appears in the pics, and the Space Shark in the pic looks so lonely and dwarfed by the huge walls.

Wooooooooooooowwwwww..... Those sharks look AMAZING, nerd

Apologies on not posting sooner- prepping for adepticon was crazy! Now I return to my irregularly unscheduled postings!



I really cant wait to see these guys in person. The gray turned out awesome and the lenses (particularly on that ML marine) are jaw dropping!
I particularly like the tribal markings on the helmets... Really gives them a very Pacific Islander-esque feel. One of my favorite marines has to be the one drawing his blade. really really cool pose!

Oh... and Im worried that the Sergeant's dental plan wont cover him.... hes got a particularly nasty set of pearly whites!


Glad to see you giving attention to your own stuff, and I really must echo the sentiment that they're glowing hot! Really super looking!

I would lay the wall panels on their side and spray a nice big coat of brown ink/wash on them, letting it settle in the cracks. Then do the same with black for some good grime. While you wait for those stages to dry, stack more stuff on the dogs.

More red! and even some white I finished the red part on the two rhino's and got a bit done on another attempt at painting white for my Sang Priests. coming along well I think haven't had a chance to do what Dave recommended with my ZM boards yet due to poor weather, but I will indeed heed the advice from someone I trust and admire as soon as I am able!

but until then, here's some wip of the rhino's





And now for some white work, I tried something different and went along my normal paint style by base coating, washing then highlighting again. I used a secret weapon grey/blue wash and mixed white in with it until i got to just white.gotta finish him nd then do the termie priest




thoughts? should have 'em done next week then I'll do Whaleys Razorback and BigH's bare headathon

Those rhinos just scream off the page Nerdy... very impressive. Is there a bit of pink mixed in with the white on the Apoth? Looks like there's a very subtle pink/blue thing going on.
