Making some good progress on those rescues! It will be fun to see them on the display base.

Thanks,

Thanks Maharg, they’ll be a while off for paint. I’ve only managed to make 2 shoulder pads so far, so about 18 more to go before they see some primer!

I thought they looked like too close to garbage when you first shared them in their raw state and asked the questions, but great to see that you have made treasure from trash!

Thanks for sharing

Thanks IGtR, they were a bit ropey, but hopefully they look decent after a lick of paint. Being a Yorkshireman, I love a good bargain!

Cheers MegaDave, hopefully before the years out!

I made some slow progress tonight (I blame s2 of For All Mankind) and got the washes on to the Mechanicus dudes and blocked out some colours on the Poxwalkers too before slapping some Agrax on them.

I’m pretty pleased with the shade that the Seraphim Sepia gave the yellow, it’s pretty much what I was after. The Poxwalkers are maintaining the Chaos colours from my BSF gang, they’ll each need a spot of green somewhere. The one with a snorkel will have green snot, but I’m not so sure on the rest, maybe the 3 spots can be glowy?

Thanks for looking

Good work on the rescue operation for the marines! It's always a lot of work. Usually pays off in the end though.
I have had to rescue a bunch of models, but all of them were messed up by my younger self to begin with

Can't wait to see the display board in the future!
It's a lot more fun to take pictures using one. Hope you enjoy building it.
It's a daunting task to build one for each army, but will be worth it.

I'd love to do more display boards for my other armies as well, but the storage space is currently an issue

Yes, the yellow looks really nice. Perhaps some green tones or shades to the pustules bubbling or bursting out of their bodies? There's a lot of area there, but a green wash might be able to speed up the painting. My two cents.

Cheers man, I’m not too sure on the first highlights though. The Techpriest chap has limited contours, so it’s pretty much back to the original yellow. I might need to go back in with the Sepia

I’ve gotta admit that I’m nor really feeling these guys. The inspiration is lacking and I can’t even decide on the colours of cables! The Servitor has a few red ones which look ok. RGB Colour wheel has blue opposite yellow, so I could do that? Dunno, maybe I need them to sit staring at me during work hours to get some thoughts going?

Thanks for looking , ideas welcome, cos I don’t have many right now!

Could you incorporate some blues with the light on his shoulder and the glow from the pistol the other one is holding? Other than that those yellows look great.

Both the yellow on your Ad Mech and the flesh of the pox walkers look great. Good to see the sepia tone gave you the desired look as well.

Some recess shading with the sepia to deepen the shadows and mixing some white into your original yellow might put you on the right track for highlights. Blue would be a neat little spot colour, it'll provide something eye-catching without the colours clashing. I find minis with tonnes of detail to be demotivating, but you're almost there!

Some blue contrast wires would look quite striking, but the red wires on the belly work well (I think blue would draw the eye away from the face). I think the yellow on the servitor is very well blended. I like Tyranid Horde's suggestion as well.

Red or brown wires I reckon, depending on how much you want them to pop.
On the flip side you could do the armour they're wearing red/brown or even Blue/Green with metal highlights, and have the cables black

Nice looking yellow. Maybe using a yellow/sepia or yellow/light brown mix to transition between the sepia and yellow layers would give more range to play with, other than that just add white as Tyranid Horde suggested, though this could end up a bit pale if you get too carried away. I like the red wires, and Yorkright's suggestions for adding some blue are good too. Hope the inspiration returns for these soon

AM guys look cool, but I get the "not feeling them" bit. They are still sitting primed in a box, although I painted up the other three minis from the set very quickly. With cables red and blue might work very well, they contrast each other and work with the yellow. Or some black and white, like the AM symbol.

Thanks TH, I decided to go back in with the sepia. I’d pretty much lost what I was looking for, and I’m much happier with the current state of them. Cheers!

I had thought of brown, but I like it. I’ll bare it in mind when I get to them, black sounds cool too.

I thought about the white, but thought it might lose the warmth I was wanting. I tried yriel yellow on the tech priest, but wasn’t happy and decided to stick with the sepia and small highlight of Averland. It won’t win a painting comp but I’ll stick with it I reckon.

Yeah, they’re not the most inspiring of minis for me. Slowly getting progress though. I like the idea of black and white as secondary and tertiary colours. I need to make some choices now!

Thanks all for the ideas, I’m sure I’ll get round to incorporating some of them eventually! The last week or two I’ve been suffering the effects of kids being back at school, with tiredness and colds circulating again. As such progress has been minimal, though I did spend an hour last weekend on the Panthers display board. I also now realise that I have far more minis than I can fit on the board, so I’ll have to expand at some point. Sadly no pics just yet.

Tonight was the first paint session I’ve got enthused during for a while. Whilst waiting on the sepia to dry on the Ad Mech I got the Poxwalkers out again and ended up switching focus to them for most of the session! I decided I wanted their pustules to be sore, so added a purple wash to the skin surrounding them. I was going to use my old red wash too for the base of each major pustule, but it was way too bright. Instead I watered down some Khorne Red which gave a nasty colouring to the pustules. I made sure to wipe away the excess though. During that phase I figured their bodies must be badly bruised with all of the deformity and sores. So I threw on some bruise colours, black and blue were obvious choices to complement the red and purple, but I also threw in some spots of yellow. The pustules themselves got a base of Averland then a highlight of Yriel yellow;

I’m pleased how some of the bruising has come out, it gives a good it of interest. I’m torn on the pustules themselves, I quite like how the yellow works with the purple, but had originally planned to finish them with a bone colour. I think bone would be more realistic, but the yellow and purple combo looks cool. What do you guys think?

As for the ad mech chaps, they got their yellows returned to flat Averland before I washed them Sepia and gave them a minimal Averland highlight.

I’m still not feeling them, though I am happy how the yellow looks in the pics. I’ll sort their metallics out next I think, then add some secondary colours.

Thanks for looking!

I quite like the new yellow. I wonder if a sepia wash on the pustules might bring them a bit back to the more realistic colour you were originally thinking while keeping them yellow?

I agree that the yellow and purple look nice together. Bone colored pustules might blend into the skin a bit too much?

The yellow on the ad mech guys looks good alright. Maybe after adding a few more details, you get a better feeling for their overall look.
If you are not satisfied then, you can always go back and play around with the tones.

I tried out the bone pustules on a couple of spots, and yeah, they just started looking like their skin again. My Slaaneshi Nurglites will keep bright yellow pustules it seems! Thanks Ezki

As it’s a bank holiday weekend I thought I’d finish the break off with a bit of painting. Once again I ended up focussing on the Poxwalkers, pretty much getting them done. I mainly focussed on their horny protrusions then did their eyes in green as well as the dripping snot that one seems to have. I even tried a basic OSL around their eyes and the snot. I think it looks decent enough, so went ahead and painted their bases black. The Ad Mech chaps got some detailing, with cables picked out in red or Black Templar for armoured cables. They’ll both get a couple of blue cables too. As I had the green out they got some buttons and dials painted too. I gave the Ad Mech symbols a go too, they came out decently, though they’re a bit flat. Might need to break out my glasses to try some shading/highlighting

I think I’ll call the Poxwalkers done and get some decent photos once I finish off the Ad Mech chaps. With only a couple of guys I’ll hopefully get them done during the next session.

Thanks for looking, as before, any ideas happily received!

I like that yellow on the AdMech guys, really well painted as well plus it is a colour you do not really see on the faction.

The poxwalkers are looking suitably gross and manly, in the right way.

Cheers, it’s pretty basic, just Averland and seraphim sepia but I like it well enough. Gross and manly is kinda the perfect way to describe Poxwalkers I feel. They have a certain football supporters on a Saturday afternoon that’s got a bit out of hand vibe to them

Thanks Robert, welcome to my Pooh! That was pretty much how I felt seeing a few others tackle yellow ad mech. Painting yellow isn’t too fun, but once I decided to keep it simple it was quick and looks decent enough for table top action. The Poxwalkers were just fun, slapping different washes down to make some bruising, kinda makes me want to try some more nurgle. Their Plague Marine mates will have to suffice I suppose.

Yeah, this year is going very slowly slowly on the painting front. I am amassing quite a few built and primed minis now, so I’ll switch focus at some point I guess.
youwashock wrote:The Servitor and Ad-Mech guy look great with that yellow/metal juxtaposition.

Juxtaposition, wow! That almost makes it sound deliberate and artistic, thanks! I think I’ll be brightening up some of the metal, though I think some bits will stay dark for that extreme juxtaposition. Cheers!

Some of you may recall my grand plans for getting my High Elves all painted up this year, well, I’ve been plugging away at mould lines have now got all of the rank and file Archers and Spearmen primed, ok apart from one that I forgot! I plan to do them as one massive batch. There’s 52 of them so the plan will be to do them in stages between other projects. Here’s what they look like right now;

First will be either the flesh or the chainmail once I’ve finished the 2 Ad Mech chaps.

During work breaks this week I’ve been prepping the Land Speeder I got in an eBay bundle. I’m mostly there but need to think about how I paint it.

I’ve not glued the top down yet, as I think I’ll paint the crew compartment and their legs before I do that. The good news is it came with a flight stand (most on eBay don’t seem to) and better yet, the hole fits a cocktail stick which should make painting it easier, without the risk of painting the clear stand! I’ll probably use a Sector Mechanicus 60mm base for it rather than the clear flight base though.

Hopefully get some more paint on the Ad Mech tonight, so catch ya later!

MegaDave wrote:Oh man, those high elves excite me!

Yeah, I’m surprisingly excited about painting all 52 in one go! Final dude joined them in being primed this afternoon too, so I’m all good to go once the Ad Mech are done.

Speaking of which... I made no progress on them! Mainly because I was watching the formula e and because I ended up doing some work this evening. Instead I concentrated on Void Panther goodness, getting the Land Speeder sub-assemblies put together, then getting some shoulder pad icons ready too.


I reckon I’ll add a few embellishments to the speeder, a couple of Panther icons down the side and maybe even a larger one replacing the eagle on the front? Not sure on the latter though.

Hopefully there will be painting over the next week or so as I have the week off! Maybe even some with the kids if they’re good!

Thanks for looking!
