is started off white, but the grey/blue wash has sorta changed it. But i think the final effect makes it look more arcticy Why?

@Shado: personally I think cleaner colors and using the wash to pick out shadows only would give it a more ice feel. Take a look at IceAngel's pictures to see what I mean.

Have you ever seen on say the Discovery channel, pictures or views of inside an ice cave? The way the ice forms from rushing water goes from a deep blue to a stark white at the points. If you could imitate that going from deep blue shadow to stark white armor plates I think you would achieve your goal better than washing the whole figure. That's just my opinion though. If you achieved what you wanted from the wash then my opinion doesn't matter.

@cypher, i understand the point you're making, i think i'll need to thin out the wash, and using a little less as well as wiping it off of the armour plates should add to that effect. what d'ya reckon?

I would more just apply the washes to areas where dark shadow would be, then line those with Space Wolves Grey faded (highlighted?) into Skull White. I think that would turn out wonderfully.

Sorry about that, let me clarify.

I would like anything blood angels really. I would be even up for a single Hq model. Armor would be nice too, drop pods, tanks, land speeders anything really other then basic troops, i have too many of those.


Here it is, the base coat was a bit thick so i ended up cleaning it with some goof off and the marine came out very clean.

Okay folks. First attempt at this GMS. I am doing a scout in exchange for an Inquisitorial Kill Team member.

This is very rough just now, all limbs pinned etc so things can get changed about.

I need to lower the cloak, and do some GS work, including extra fur on the shoulders and cloak. Maybe make some old style shoulder pads. Also tried 2 different positions for the sword, however I am considering swapping the hand weapons over.

Anybody know where I can get more of the classic Space Marine Scout Backpacks????? I love them and could use a few more.

C & C welcome.

So how does this work? you send me a model or a sprue and I assemble/paint it and send it back? Cause that sounds like fun.

I Convert and Paint Bad Moon Orks but I can do any ork really



I can also do space marines at a pinch.



apologies for the size.
and yes since the photo's they have both been rebased.

Hey Killamop, Whalemusic put the descriptor of what this is about at the top of page 1.

It doesnt have to be marines though, I have seen orks done too, actually quite a few orks.

Its really a way of meeting other gamers and sharing your modelling skills with them. They build you a model and paint it to the best of their abilities, in turn you build them a model and paint it to the best of your skills. Then you swap.

For me its a motivator to try new techniques and push the envelope of my modelling and painting, plus I get to meet lots of cool people too.

Wanted to show off a bit of BLACKHAND's work. His Sabre Legion was the first thing that really made me realize his sculpting genius. By comparison, I was as involved in his blog every bit as much as some of you are involved in mine.

This little diorama, his part of our trade... depicts me as the Sabre Legion soldier, leading to young scouts (my boys) in a training run. The amazing thing is that we were just beginning to get to know each other at the point when he conceived and built this models, yet it is so perceptive in bringing my relationship with my boys into focus.

Really remarkable... Thanks my friend! I hope you'll enjoy what I'm planning on making for you as much as I enjoy having this.

It's daunting how many pages are in this thread! This is such a cool idea though, so it makes sense that there would be a lot of posts..

I don't currently have any pictures of painted orks up, as I'm unsure were the charger for my camera is, but once I find it I'll post some pictures.

I personally would be interested in an Ork Swap, as a horde can never have enough diversity!

If anyone's interested, let me know with a PM!

Check out my Project (B)log! I would love any suggestion or comments you may have.

@Prototype_X, I wasn;'t planning to, it was gonna stay that white/blue colour, but I could paint it if you so required (while you can't see it all, it's all white, it isn't white/black). What d'you think about the tidied up white marine? still interesting in trading? How's the marine you're painting coming along?
