I like the whitewalls on the bike. Make it look more sporty, suits the shape of the bike (compared to the normal 40k boxiness).

For the shading of the white, I'd go grey.
A brown would make it look dirty next to the clean look of the purple and gold.
A blue would connect it too much with the blue plasma.

A cool grey would contrast nicely with the warmer purple and gold, let the plasmagun stand out, and give a clean look that seems to be the thing for this army.

Well, the compressor worked for about 60 seconds... then quit. I guess you get what you pay for.

First outing with my Iwata. I like it.

Here's the airbrushing on the sicaran (second round). The picture is a little overexposed, IRL the colors are darker across-the-board.



The areas with no gradients are going to be either gold or white... off-white.

Sorry to here about the compressor, the airbrush worked out though, every time I see that tank I love it more, such a great design, and the purple really nice.

Whats the story on the compressor?

You payed enough to get a 'hello'? Shame to hear about the compressor, I hope it's under guarantee/easily fixable.

That Sicaran's an amazing tank, and the purple looks pretty nice on it. Looking forward to the progress on it!

I've never had an ounce of trouble from mine. Hoses yep.

Very inspiring work .. I'll have to try some modulation on my AL.

Well, this really isn't modulation, it's more like "panel lighting" (see graphic two pages back). There's no question I like modulation the best, but it can be a real PITA to pull off on an irregularly shaped vehicle like this one. I may have to go back on touch up the darkest areas again... they seem to have gotten covered up a bit too much by the lighter shades.

I'm in contact with the seller of the compressor, hopefully we can work something out. At least the Iwata works nicely.


I've decided to switch the queue around a bit. After this tank is done I'm going to jump into some infantry and a couple of rhinos. I just need more troops... fun as the dreadnoughts are... the contemptor can wait.

Sorry to hear about the early demise of the compressor, did it die of asphyxiation ;-P? The sicaran is one of my favorite FW tanks, and yours is looking good. When you paint the treads is it silver directly over the purple or do you lay down a base of black first?

Pour one out for the compressor, at least your airbrush worked nicely. The Sicaran looks great, it'll be an interesting shift from massive plates to tiny troops. Good luck!

Just thought this deserved an update. The ebay seller of the compressor has been very helpful and is sending me a new one. I don't think they'd do that if they didn't have confidence that my defective one was an anomaly. So I look forward with hope to the new machine arriving in a bit. Fingers crossed.

Big tournament today. Kind of old-school Aard Boyz... no painting requirement... gloves are off when it comes to list building.

Got up early so I could watch Pacific Rim to put myself in the mood. Guess what kind of army I'm bringing?

I promise some pics tonight guys. Sorry, frantically cleaning the house for Easter dinner & father-in-law.

Just to give you an idea of what the competition was like... I ran a list of 4 knights plus a dominus & 3 grav destroyers. I was tabled in 2 out of 3 games... and I don't think I played badly.

Did you enjoy it though? Sometimes playing the opposite to how you would normally can be very refreshing. I usually go for the fluffy and story driven game. But every now and then a "stomp them into the ground" super list can be an interesting diversion. Especially if you opponents are trying to do the same.

I did Archer. It was a very simple army to play so I had lots of time to consider what I wanted to do without slowing down the game.

My first game I actually won 18-1 (though not a tabling... almost though, he had one demon price left and we just sat on our respective objectives for the last 3 turns, neither of us really able to hurt the other).

Second game was close, though I was behind for most of the game (but still in it). Actually the first two games were quite similar, "very close, until it wasn't".


Game 3 I just got destroyed by an elder list filled with scat-packs and warp spiders... but sometimes you've just got to sit back and admire a list like that and a talented player who really knows how to use it.

So yes, I had a good time in spite of what would seem like a bad day.

That's all you need out of a tournament. I bet that early win put you high up the table rankings!
