The Havocs look fine. Almost remind me of the original Space Crusade minis.

I think your conversion would work as CSM Havocs. It's a clever conversion, I think.

Secondly, if someone were to object to the havoc conversion, then you know that the game would be anyways not worth the hassle tbh.
. Thank you NotOnline.

I think the choice of Mk3 armour is a good one for havocs, it's got a heavier look to it and I think it works well with the heavy weapons they carry. What bases are they on? I think for gaming they need to be on 40mm bases instead of the usual 32mm. A few more chaosy bits would help them even further imo.
. Thanks TH, they are on 32mm bases I did not realize they came with bigger bases. Did find some 40s in the bits box that are for some custodes ( is that heresy if I use them ). As for the extra chaosy I will see what there is.

Thank you CB

@shadows and dust thank you.

Pretty sure the Lt. is done going to put him away for a bit and think about it. Would like to get some good pictures of him before I post in the monthly challenge. Using my iPhone for pics anyone who has a few hints would be appreciated.

Thanks for following along.

I really love him. The contrasting colours pop and the edge highlighting looks great.

Great job. Love all the detail, right down to the glowing nodes on the back of the shield.

Lovely model you painted there! I like all the little details, like the texture on the scabbard and the subtle OSL.

Congrats on finishing the Lt. and not shying away from all the little details on the shield and such. Would definitely be cool to see more marines emerge in that color in the future.

That’s a fancy pants Mantis Warrior, the highlighting on the green is lovely. What was the recipe for that volkite glow? It’s amazing!

Thank you all for the compliments! My near not metals did not really turn out but this is the first model in a long time I did not use any metallic paints on.
@Viterbi about doing more in this scheme, it probably wont happen I have too many marines as is (company of blood angels plus vehicles, a patrol of deathwatch and the smurfs). This was just for the painting competition and to push myself to try a few new things.

@Gobert the volkite recipe... as far as I remember is white base, mephiston red, evil sunz scarlet, a thinned down wash of evil sunz for the red glow on the barrel. For the coils it was ungor flesh mixed with a little evil sunz then more ungor flesh then a bit of thin white scar near the top of the coils.

Working on the Sisters of Silence next will post some pics later.

Again thank you all for following along!

2 quick shots of the Sisters. Tried something new with the face on the left one, started with Ungor flesh mixed with Matt Black. Worked up the Ungor till it was almost a golden brown then slowly mixed pink horror adding more to the mix. Finally a bit of white scar.

because small, and white in many cases, aswell as a dot in the middle...
which means absolutely horrible to paint.
the rest of the model is ace though!

The sisters are looking good, particularly the one with the red cape, great layering. Not a fan of painting eyes on models outside of marines, GW tend to be quite fine with their sculpts and I don't have the coordination for many eyes.

Man, I have to watch that movie again

Nice job on the sisters Yorkright! Regarding eyes, if it's not a character model I sometimes just use a dark shade in the eye recess, that's often enough. Or if I did eyes and they're not level, you can just scratch one out with a hobby knife, it is the battlefield of the 40th (41st?) millenium after all
