Thanks guys! Hopefully soon we'll try the same scheme on a larger mini.

Had a social painting night, my roommate and two friends and I all sitting around a table painting our minis. I chose to trial a few more colour palette choices for my Idoneth using the Soulrender. I set out the recipe for the fins and tassels, and laboured over the colour for the swordfish. The swordfish is looking great, except their underbelly isn't as pale as I was hoping for, I did a blue wash over it and it really covered over the pale more than I had intended! But the rest of the fish colours are just perfect, and I'm loving the coral orange for the fins and plumes!

All lenses and eyes done! I also totally forgot to draw attention to the Sarge's cingulum in roman red leather. Another chance to use a red shade as my accent colour!

Spoiler:


Just need to do the white, the eagle chests, the yellow/orange light on the backside, the sarge's studs and eye, and the OSL from the back vents. Then on to the arms!

Lenses look awesome, as does the swordfish! What was the recipe for the lenses?

Thank you! I did the lenses in the Seraphon-themed blue-green line of paints. Base Stegadon Scale Green, then Sotek Green, then Temple Guard Blue, with the dots of White scar. Each layer peeks out from the previous layer. It also helps differentiate from a more sky-blue theme.

I got the rest done! I don't quite have the steady hand to do good eyes yet, more practice needed, and need to look up schemes to do eyes. But the rest of the bodies is all done (except noticing I forgot the sarge's service stud. will have to go back and do that). I'm very happy with the golden aquilas, they came out with a lot of depth to them.

I apologize for the dirty camera lens, it gives the white a bit of a halo...

Gwyn,

The best way to do eyes is paint the eye black, then paint a smaller white eye shape inside the black one (so you have a thin black edge around the white), then a dot of black in the center of the white, that black dot should reach the top and bottom of the original black edge...that will prevent your eyes look like they are starring.

Hope that helps,

CB

Ooooh, I'll try that on attempt 3! Attempt 2 here is... better, but not quite right yet. The eye is smaller (like, actually eye-sized). I did at least get the chance to do his service stud and clean up the studs near the top of his armour (though the one on the left the wash pooled too much on it, I'll need to fix that).

Spoiler:


I'm putting in way more effort on these decade-old minis that likely won't even see a tabletop than they really deserve, but I'd rather learn the techniques on these guys than on the fish-elves, so I can get it right for them!

Painting eyes is a bastard and I hate doing them, but they give a finished look to a mini. Your attempt is looking good!

Really nice lenses, and overall a great unit coming together. Plus, anything with Terminators always makes me feel like it's 1989 again and I'm playing Space Hulk in my mom's attic with neighbor kids. Great work!

I just finished skimming through your pblog. Lots of nice stuff here. I particularly like the patchy washes on the nighthaunts and the OSL on the Terminators' vents.

Now showing Chaos Centaurs and Tiger Corps from Mars Attacks!


Painting Total as of 5/27/2020: 94 plus two mechs

Painting total as of 12/24/2019: 138 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit and two hills.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! After a few attempts at a stronger OSL on the back panels from the furnace, I've given up on that for now. Red OSL on white just keeps looking like... red panels.

So the back will, in the end, just look like this.

Started work on the arms, which should by all rights be fast, but work has hit me so hard I only have maybe a half hour of spare time in a day, and then I'm off to the States for a professional convention (alas not the cool kind that I could buy minis at), so this blog might get pretty slow until next week.

I think the vents look pretty cool, or rather have a nice warm glow to them. Good work Gwyn

New vents look really good, nice simmering heat effect. Excited to see those terminators fully armed (sorry, I let myself out... )

Got dropped right into the thick of it after returning from the States. Little time to pick up the brushes since then alas. Hopefully now that classes are moving online I’ll have a bit more time.

One suggestion Gwyn. Something that works quite well is when your red bleeds onto the grey/silver below you can just put some black to correct, it will look like shadow and make the contrast in color more pronounced.

My two cents,

CB

I like the vents on the back of the terminators. Think I'll start doing something similar.

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thanks guys! I finished up the red, just time to do the sights (which I've decided will be metallic black like the main casing of the gun), the gold, and as Cpt Brown said, clean up the bleeding red!

I know this progress is painfully slow, trust I feel it too, but we're almost done!

Blue and the grey (except I forgot the fingers) is done! Next is the fingers, the shoulder badges, and then lastly the sword and gold details for the sarge!

Finally got a substantive painting day in! Finished the sword and terminator honours! Just gonna do some limited OSL from the sword, and basing, and then on to the next project!

The terminator honours came out ok (super quick and easy drybrushes and washes with limited edge highlighting), but I'm super thrilled with how the sword came out! I decided to go for a more fiery orange-red sword rather than the traditional Imperial cold blue to be an accent colour to the blue armour elsewhere. I also gave a thin black line around the jousting shield, to help separate it from the body, on my SO's professional advice.

Here's the line of left arms!

Cool effect on the sword Gwyn. Its cool how it comes from the nodes and fades to black at the hilt.

Thanks Gobert and Viterbi! I'm super happy with how the sword came out, it's the most advanced blending I've done yet. With that, the practice doing lots of lenses (which I think I've gotten down pat now), and a start practicing eyes, I think I can count these terminators as a pretty good learning experience!

Anyhow, the minis are finished! Light OSL on from the sword worked in a way that it didn't coming from the furnace, but I'm ok with that. Helps pick out the sarge as special. Click on the pictures below to see them full-size in the gallery!
