As I said before the camo is great.

Yes, I think they look wonderful even though my IG characters hate them. The darker more realistic style is better. Most Marine armor colors just scream out for attention. The Eliminators shouldn’t subscribe to that.

The secret to painting a really big army is to keep at it. You can't reach your destination if you never take any steps.

I build IG...lots and lots of IG.

They were proxied in my last game, Scouts blue tacked to 40mm bases, but I've no idea when I'll get to play a game again, stupid apocalypse.

Thanks, I think it's my best effort so far.

Yes as an IG player too I feel your pain, IG need their characters more than most too. You can't even just hide them behind a Russ as these guys can shoot round corners. Yes I always find it funny when you see the old Scouts too in camo cloaks and white jump suits...

Been able to do a bit on the dread and blue tack out the laser Elim squad, so some pics will follow eventually.

So I've managed some more progress..



This guy has been plugged away at..



Slowly getting there..



Here I've washed and done the first stage of highlights. I'll try to get a bit more in as he's approaching completion (ish).



The next thing I'm lining up is my mini lascannon team...they are roughly blue tacked out in likely poses...



I trimmed off the pouches on the Reiver legs here...



So I can mount his powerpack thingy..



Not sure if I should trim off the other side and put a pistol there, mostly so the legs are less obviously Reiver ones..



In other news MLCS very kindly set up a game of 40k on Table Top Simulator for us, so far we've managed turn 1 but we'll be able to finish that off soon. Once the 'proof of concept' 1k game is done, we might do a BattRep in it (seeing as we're not allowed in the same house). Let me know if that would be interesting..

Hope everyone is coping with all the madness. I'm feeling a bit more inspired so I hope to do a bit more painting.

Hello.

I've not found much time (ironically) to get some painting in but I've been able to push on with the Ven Dread..



All the main base colours are highligted and shaded now..



So I've started adding the details...chapter logo on the right (his) like all my other units....



Dead No. here...



Company No. and generic battle honour on other leg...note travel chess groinal attachment too....once the first pass was done on these I went over and tidied and then messed them up with cracking/scratches...



These too have had another layer...the white has had brown chips and some Argax drips, getting a bit bleached out here...



A bit more obvious on this pic..



First Co. logo has had laurels added...



I've started his basing proper here...the cream panel has been cut so it will lie at an angle and is from the KT box terrain. The brown panel under his foot is from the Galvanic walkway thing I got from CONQUEST! The matrix of stuff it's all sat in is your basic polyfilla kind of stuff..

I've a last pass of scratches and highlighting to do on the hull and, obviously, finishing the base and it's all done.

Not sure what to do next, maybe the terrain walkway thingy, it's all undercoated and ready to go...

Hopefully some finished pics on this guy next...

Hi Randy,

Loving your recent work. I can't agree with Nevelon re the washing machine dreads (Contemptors are best) but I do have lovely vivid memories of getting the first 2nd edition metal 'Blood Angel's Furioso' it its bright red box. It cost £25 quid and for that you could have got loads of actual penny sweets and individual snouts and bla bla zzzzzzzzzz...

Huh? Sorry I must have reminisced myself asleep.

Primaris Snipers came out really well. I'm looking forward to seeing the Reiver bits bashed ones too as they will be even more unique.

Hugs and kisses - let's finish that TTS battle sometime. Mwa x

Thanks for the comments guys and welcome back MLCS, glad you found your login again. Come round and see us soon (from a distance).

I did finish the robot..



*EXTERMINATE*



*THE XENOS*



The white has a little more nuance that always gets bleached out in these pics..



Converted ML, I like it and think it adds a nice bit of originality, as does the Contemptor head, which I think fits much better now it's painted.



The base. The panels started brown and were then dry brushed silver. Then stippled orange and finally inked with Argax and Reikland. I added chips back on with Mitheral. I think the 'shot-thru-the-head' skull was off a Black Reach(around) Terminator.

I'm happy with him though he will probably be my last 'washing machine of death' type Dread. I do now have 3. He joins the Comtemptor in my 1st Co. contingent and the 2 fancy Dreads are mean to the other two 'standard' ones. Dicks.

I think I will start on that terrain next, it's very civic minded of me. Not sure how it'll turn out really but with enough washes anything will work(?). Hope you like the Hellfire Dread.

Very nice Randy.

If you are going to do some terrain next, join the LoER competition and do a field hospital.

Just a thought.

Sorry for the slack reply. I've not been painting much at the mo. When I have free time in the eves I've a few recurring internet based meet ups and I'm often ready to just go to bed otherwise.

I did manage a tiny bit of terrain though.

I like the idea of joining the competition CB but the models I'm doing aren't scratch builds (and I wasn't planning on painting them super great), I could paint a red cross on the side of this thing....



It's a 3D print a friend chucked in with some printing he did for me a while ago. I sprayed in with the last of the Scorched Brown like spray we got from Halfords to do the KT terrain and then over brushed some Snake Bite analogue over it. I want to keep a similar tone to the other terrain so it sits nicely with it.



I then went over that with Bleached Bone which is the predominant colour of the other terrain. I added some silver to the supposedly bare areas..



I scumbled some orange over that and will ink it till it looks good.



If I can make it look good I will apply the recipe to this thing too...

Here's a bit more on the 3D printed terrain..



I gave it a few goopy washes and another dry brusjing...



Think it's ok..



I wanted it to be similar to the stuff I've already done so as not to be jarring when/if they're all there together..



Pew Pew, help I'm wearing the wrong camo!

I think I'll do the gantry thing next as this was quite quick to do.

Nice work on the terrain. I should do more myself, just hard to get motivated.

I know, it's only the 2nd time I've really spent time doing terrain, the previous being the KT stuff. I never did it before. I have been pleased with the results and it's much nicer to play on.



I've started on the next bit, seen here...

In other news..



I stuck together a basic build on Eliminator squad No. 3. All squads are seen here, 2 with BSR and 1 squad with the Lasers..



These are Reiver bodies obviously and I think these legs go with the 'cradled pistol arms' much better than the stock build..



I'm going to replace the leg pouches with some sniper ammo left over from the OG squad and pistols (for close encounters)...



These are just rough sketches of poses so far, I was thinking of GS'ing their backpacks to give them the same camo wrapping the 'proper' models have. I may add tiny shoulder cloaks too..



The new squad..I may retcon the guy on the right to be resting his shooter on a bit of wall, may improve that pose that I'm not super happy with ATM...

So some gentle progress..hope you are all well etc.
