Great job as per usual. Can't wait till they're finished, and can't wait to see the Thunderfire all done.

@HONAW - I can't usually paint if I've ingested copious amounts of sugar or coffee hands shake far to much.

@Swordwind - Both hands actually, and I had one of my eyes replaced by a Miniaturized version of the hubble telescope

@LSC'L - sounds like a plan! How far have you got to go on your Nid's?

@Lorna - Awesome, can't wait to see the progress.

Update: first stage grey done

Bit late in the game for me to suggest his, but wouldn't it have been pretty cool if on the first marine, he had scratches across his face in the same places that they are on his helmet? Attention to detail and what not.

Beautiful miniatures as always though.

@Gits - Thanks Git's I used the robe trial I did on your marine for the robes etc on this squad, I think it looks much better than my other robes now.... dangit.

@Moltar - Thanks, I'm sure Lorna will find a use for them

@C C - Thanks, I learned pretty quick good photo's can make or break good models, thanks for stopping by!

@Lorna - Cheers, fingers crossed they will get over to you with minimum damage, I suspect the squad leader (marine 5 with the staff) may be a little difficult, but I'll wrap them up as well as I can.

@Ghosty - Your right, I actually hadn't thought about it in that way, I should have done an abrasion on the other marine and scratches on the pointy helmeted one as well, good idea, noted for the future,

Update: Guide on the robes (I took last night off from painting and was playing the beta of Path of Exile)

Stage 1: I started with a base coat of Calathan Brown and gave the robe a Devlan mud wash, wait for it to dry.


Stage 2: this was a watered down coat of vermin brown and bleached bone 3:1 ratio


Stage 3: again more watered down vermin and bleached 1:1


Stage 4: watered down vermin and bleached 1:3


Stage 5: watered down Bleached bone only


Stage 6: Bleached bone and skull white 1:1 and applied to very raised edges allowing for the last pass of skull white to sit on top of it leaving more of this layer below


Stage 7: Skull white highlight

Oh, you individually highlighted the grip on the staff...
Of course you did.
Because you like it when i feel bad about myself, don't you!?

Seriously though, the day you paint something i don't like the look of, hell may well freeze over.

@TaWaaagh - Cheers, I'm glad you like it.

Update: working on WhaleMusic's Plasma Cannoneer, base colors and wash applied, I think I need a new black wash, I ended up scraping the bottom of the pot to cover this guy.

@Leohard - Indeed, chainsaws in the hands of females are an extremely scary proposition! I've played about 7 games with my Spacemarine army, I think i've lost 2 won 1 and had 4 draws. with the last game being an 1850 point game!

@C C - yes I agree, I would think the most awesome would have to go to "Half as good as a wink to a blind bat" I decided for a nondescript chest piece as there is a hurring great plasma cannon blocking most of it up.
