Theo.

They have not stayed pink though...

Still to do are the gold and brass bits, highlights on all the metals, the tires, and a few touch-ups here and there.
And then there's the cloth and skin on the sergeant...

Also, how's this for tarmac?

Very nice paintjobs throughout and the tarmac is brilliant, how do you achieve that, GW gravel flock rolled flat? Great technique.

Thanks, Gogsnik. Welcome to my second (internet) home.

The tarmac is actually made with the same material that I have made the other bases with in this thread; that is the black gravel-like stuff (I assume activated carbon) from a water filter.
Instead of just sprinkling it onto PVA, as I did for the other bases, I added much more and pressed it into the glue to get as flat a surface as possible with minimal gaps. Then when it was dry I gave it a light sanding to flatten out the pointy bits and give it that compressed, tarmac look.
Paint black, dry-brush grey, add lines to flavour...

Cool, thanks guys. Glad you agree.

Water filter contents may differ, but what I acquired contained a mixture of the black gravel (activated carbon) and white beads (molecular sieves?).
These needed separating, which I achieved with a little patience and the help of a brush and an inclined plane (Brush the black bits up and let the spherical white bits roll down). It's not entirely perfect, but does a lot of the hard work for you.

Use the black for gravel (or tarmac as it happens) and the white for round-head rivets.

So today I have finished off the metals, touched up the white, started on the bases (taking photos and may make a mini-tutorial if people are interested), and just painted the pouches and holsters... edging nearer completion...

I actually like the "robes" looking like leather, not sure if you are finished with them or not, but right now they actually look really good. Over all it's looking brilliant so far.Amazing how the colour takes the black down nicely.

Ah no, the robes have just had the same base dark brown that the pouches, holsters, seats and his head got while I had it mixed up a ready.
I was planning on blending the cloak up to the usual Dark Angel off white, with the brown in the creases like on the company master.
However, I could be persuaded otherwise if you can convince me that the die-hard gamers, that will hopefully buy these, won't be put off by a non-codex colour...

Thanks. I'm glad it appears to be working. There are a few patches I've noticed that need a little darkening and I'll do that when I touch up the black areas that have received some painting slips.

Oh that's clever, I like that, especially if you get some nice round head rivets out of it too. Thanks for the info

Thanks Gogsnik. You even get a variety of sizes of round rivets.

I've been a little quiet here, but I have been busy. The list of things to do on these bikes is now very short, so they will be finished soon (and then I'll be back on my tank ).

Sorry to disappoint you, Cam, but I have finished off the cloak in typical DA colours.
Here's a teaser picture to tie you all over until I finish all three bikes.

There's a few slips I can see that need attention in addition to all the others in the queue...
and yes, I still need to do his skin. Not started on that yet.

Until next time...

They're just a gun metal base, wash of black and dry-brush silver.
I think it's just a matter of not making it entirely uniform in your application.

Looking great, and although I am slightly disappointed, I get it, you are selling a perfect codex model. And I think it's not far off perfect BTW.

Thanks Cam.

Do not worry though, as these are the last of the DA models in the box. That means that I'll be moving on to the chaos models soon and, as far as I can tell, they have far more scope for varying colour schemes.

So much so, that I'm struggling to decide on what schemes to use for them. Which was why I started with the DA models...

Ah chaos. I would suggest that Black and gold everyone seems to be doing, at least thats what the old codex I have kicking about is full of. Was Red and gold years ago. I know you will make it all lok brilliant.

Yeah, I've seen both those schemes. Black and Gold appears to be the poster-boys of the current chaos marines codex. But it's possible to get away with variations on the theme in a way that isn't really accepted for the non-chaos marines (or so it seems from the internet).

Also the different units don't have to match so I can do a few different schemes.
In the box there is:
The Chaos Lord. He is named, so may get a more "standard" scheme.
Some Chosen. Who look suitable for a more "interesting" paint scheme.
A whole bunch (20?) cultists. Who come complete with plenty of leather and I'm definitely thinking of a Mad Max look, for some of them at least.
And the [sarcasm]Much Loved[/sarcasm] Hellbrute. Which I may as well go all out to make it look as good as possible with a unique paint-job, or nobody will be interested.

I know you will make it all lok brilliant.
I do my best.

Man alive, you have serious patience to separate the contents of your water filter, but the tarmac bases prove that it was time well spent...

Thanks LT.

I did darken the middle of the black areas a little with a dry-brush of black (using a very short bristle brush that lost it's point ages ago), so it's not all just the addition of the other colours.

Pink primer for the guns, then added the red, LOL! so many things military used to get pink primer before the camo was applied. The Allies of WW-II sure had a flair for military fashion, as primer is to a plane/tank/sub what underwear is to their clothing.

In this case, a pink undercoat gives a nice vibrant red.
As opposed to a brown undercoat, that would give a darker, more earthy, red.

It's one of the rare occasions that it actually makes a difference with my paints... most of them don't care what's underneath.

The bikers are up on ebay.

Also, the Company Master is still available.

And don't forget that My boxes and toilets are available too.

Also also, the final pictures of all my models are very zoom-able (if you haven't tried yet) and also vote-able (if you feel inclined).

Thanks

I'm in the early stages of researching the Chaos models and will be back soon.
In the mean-time I'm building a tank in my main, army blog. Check out the link in my Sig' if you like crazy conversions...

We now return you to your regular programming...

Yeah, sadly these click-together models don't really lend themselves to conversions.
And all the extra effort will only really add time to the projects without adding much money...

However, my modelling seems to be somewhere where I can make more money (at least until my painting gets better and/or faster). So there may be more "unique" models on sale at a later date... Watch this space.

And I will get round to the sinks and baths soon...ish.
