Boardman, OH

Hi there! I'm slowly working my way back into the hobby and decided a blog would help keep me going as I try to blow through all of my Chaos Space Marines. I'm currently working on my Alpha Legion, but will eventually go on to other projects (just picked up an Eldar army). So to start I have a Havoc marine that I've been working on. I'll add pictures and updates often. Thanks for stopping by!

Looks nice, I really like the blending that you did on that power armor, it has just the right combination of blue, green, and metallic.

Thanks! No blending was used on this model. The color of the power armor was achieved using a basecoat of Runefang Steel and multiple coats Gulliman Blue and Waywatcher Green glazes.

Great result from what sounds like a relatively simple technique!

I'm quite pleased with how he and the rest of his unit came out. I've tried multiple ways to get the forgeworld look and this has been the most successful by far.

Pictures added. Still need to do a layer of 'ard coat, a layer of lahmien medium, and put them on better bases.

Looks good, but I think that the skin on the helmetless guy could use a wash, it looks a bit flat right now.

The armour really has come out nicely, and the other colours you've used on the models compliment it well!

Thanks guys!

@ CarlosTheDwarf I did wash his head and that was the second payer. I'll do some light washing around his brow to bring that out a bit and maybe a little edge highlighting to make it pop.

Sounds good, looking at what you did on the armor using washes I'm sure it will look great!

The armour looks great. Did you do full glazes with the green and blue, or partial ones?

The glazes were thinned down with lahmian medium and applied all over the model. I did 3 coats of Gulliman Blue, which made it a bright metallic blue. I then did 2 coats with Waywatcher Green all over.

Cool - thanks. I'll probably try it when I build a squad or two of AL.

No problem! Though just a heads up certain areas of the chest and back can be a pain, especially if their backpacks are on. You may have to lay the models on their fronts/backs to get the glaze to rest long enough to dry or else it will slide down to his belt area and pool there.

@Master Azalle Thanks, if you read through my replies to previous posts you can see how easy the process is to replicate. Your Angels of Vengeance look great, sometimes simple looks just as good or better than over complicated

Put the guys on some cork bases, and added the highlights to the half helmeted guy. Just need to paint the rim of the base and drill the holes of the guns

Very Nice! I really like what you did with the armor.
I might just feel inspired by it for my own alphas. My first squad was in non-metallic, but when I get to the terminators and the HQ, I'll give this a try...

I'd argue they look good already, and should look even better when they're done, but I'm a sucker for nice looking Chaos armies, so what would I know?

Lol There are pictures of stuff I've done before I started these guys in my gallery if you want to check those out. Some of the Alpha Legion guys I've done before will be redone with this new scheme.

I'll be doing squads of Berserkers, Noise Marines, and Plague Marines here and there. When the weather warms up around here I'll be putting the CSM on the shelf and starting on my Yme-Loc eldar.
