I'm going with a Mek list.. Naughts, Kans and cannon as a bulwark and boys in trucks as a reactionary/ harrassing element. May not be that effective but crazy fun to play.

Looking forward to see some stunning ork paintjobs Nerd!

Sternguard ahoy! all done. ten angry crack shot marine vets ready for battle

the group images are more accurate as the single shots are a little washed and then sharpened so they lose some detail but the group shots look mint I'm keen to paint more red with the new BA models soon too! with these guys I tried to keep my palette simple, red/white/gold green lenses and I think it looks pretty snazzy!

here they are for your appraisal










Not sure what I want to paint next what do you reckon?

Those marines really glow.

Back in 2nd edition, the best ork strategy was to load all the boyz into wagons and put everything else into bike and buggy squads, then drive fast at the enemy guns blazing. Sounds like not much has changed.

So what's the next logical step for my army? Death Co. of course


So I needed to re visit how I paint black which was so long ago! and I am sticking with my theme of painting the DC in my old Marines Exemplar scheme which fits and looks good I think I started them today, had the bodies assembled from re purposed marines so some were a little worn but mainly all good for my needs arms are left off as they're red and primed separate. so far I've primed with black spray, then a hit of white from above them then washed with Badab black x2 then used administratum grey as a highlight and then washed with blue wash, next I re did some highlights with grey again and finally washed with badab black again and that's it! next will be the details and arms!

I also started something I had been meaning to do for ages! a Captain to lead my force a jump pack captain with my head fitting for BA with the pack and fitting for my own force with my head


DC w.i.p



and Captain Naimad is he 'enough' to be a Captain? does he need more...... captain-y stuff?

I never liked all the rick-a-rack that GW puts on it's commander models honestly. Give him some simple thing to indicate his status and leave it at that.

Love the hair on the Captain. So cool.
re. his gear, it's strange to see a captain armed with a pistol and CC weapon. I think most of the 'bling' comes from special weapons, but without those weapons he looks quite normal. Although, the Mk4 JP and rib cage go towards being more captain-y.

Death Co. look good, too. Quite the lengthy process for the black . I'm curious, why the blue wash? What does it do to add to the colour?

That is some really excellent painting on the head there. Really has some character to it!

Could use some purity seals I think. Maybe some script on his shoulder pad?

Love how the death company are coming out, nerd. Loving the technique too! The wash-heavy style makes for great blends and great contrast, and from what you seem to be saying, its fast!

Ill echo the sentiments above- a purity seal or two wouldn't be amiss. And of course some extra squigglies and script on the shoulder and stuff. Perhaps swirls and filigree on his armor? Its an insane thought, but i dunnooooo... You could make it work
The head is still DAMN amazing, too... Absolutely incredible level of detail there!

Yeah the Blood Angels are said to be major artisans when it comes to making armour and I think that sorta thing would help get that across.

Hey Gents I finished Captain Naimad of the FleshEaters!

I was pretty quick with him as I just wanted to have a Jump pack Captain to be an option for HQ and I liked the model I made I actually think I first made it to be Lemartes but forgot

I took your advice and squiggled him up a bit to convey his position as a Captain of men! I think he looks good without being too blinged up but stands out among the normal marines

what do you think? he's for my own force so a few corners I cut and I know you'll notice but I've run out of basing stuff at the moment.









So, that's Naimad and now for where I stand with my DC. got them all armed, bolters, power fist, hammer, power weapon, hand meltas




This might not look like much, or that good for that matter but I washed GirrafeX's Libby a few times and am beginning to neaten him up. I'll finish the blue armour before I start the details but I want to practice smoothing the blue out more than my own models.






Automatically Appended Next Post:
Oh before I forget, the reason I wash the DC with blue as well as black is to give it a little more Ooomph and not be so cold.

and Solar, I will if you want to another tute soon! or you can send me 30 heads to paint for you lol

Amazingly tempting.. and thanks for the offer; but 1. They are already glued on the model. 2.' Teach me to fish' proverb. 3. A tutorial will be fine and help out the masses not just me.

That captain looks a lot better now!

The DC looks great. I have one little gripe, however. The red on the shaft of the thunderhammer gets a bit lost on the red of the rest of the models. It might be worth changing it to a different shade of red, or even a purple-y colour
