Ta. I see him as bringing fourth diseased tentacles. Steal away, that's why I share my progress.

Thanks Theo'. I only have the main character model left of the Nurgle chaps. Don't know how much potential three is to have him ride a tentacle, but there will not doubt be tentacles involved somewhere.

Thanks CC. That's good to hear, just what I want to achieve.

I've now changed his spiky stick into a diseased stick (with the help of the 3D pen),
finished off his tentacle hand (3 fingers as it's Nurgle),
and roughed up the holes in his armour (forgot to do the same for the scraps of cloth on the backpack, will do that shortly),
and finished off the base by populating some holes and sprinkling sawdust (had a lot about the place close to hand ). Will get some static grass at the end.


The next time you'll see him, he'll be primed.

Thanks Cam'.

But I have some Inceptors to finish first... remember them? Probably not...
The plan for these was White and Metallic, using most of my metallic paints for all the parts previously left black.

This is after all the areas were basecoated in their particular metallic and a wash of black (therefore still highlights to do).
Also, the 2 areas of black on the jet-pack thrusters are to be done with the polish-able paints, and will be done after highlights for the rest.
There's also the few parts that are not to be white or metallic, still to do.

As for the metallics, there are areas of:
Gunmetal,
Aluminium,
Chrome,
Brass,
Gold,
Metallic black.
(most will be cleaned up or highlighted with silver).



Highlights next, maybe some more black pin-washes in certain parts, clean up some of the white, and the Metalcote paints (applied and polished up).

In other news:
I got a new phone as an upgrade and have spent all day setting it up.
These are the first photos from that phone and, as with all the parts of this phone, they are slightly better than the previous phone (but not that you'd notice if you weren't looking).

Ta. I look forward to actually using it.
No worries about being behind, I'm happy to get comments on things I made years ago, days is nothing. This is why there's links to every completed project in the OP, anyone can browse through, without needing to look at every page. There's something for everyone, but not everything is for everyone.

Obviously. Tentacles are for life, not just for "AaarrggGodEmperorKillIt"

Colour scheme seems to be working as intended on the bouncy marines.
Ta. Metallics finished off now. See below:

Highlighted and further black washes, and the Metalcote paints are on and polished.
Here's an example of what those paints look like before and after a quick rub.


And these are all-round of all three with the metals done.


I might get the bases done before finishing off the last details.
We shall see...

Lo Brian. I usually use a cotton bud.
Good for getting into restricted spaces (if needed) and firm enough to polish without needing a finger behind it.

That plaguecaster looks great with all the details added!

Great job on the metals, also curious about how you polish the metal, it's a really great effect! (EDIT: I am blind and cannot read)

Those metallic are interesting. Wondering if you have ever messed about with graphite, can do similar type of things but maybe not in different shades.

all looking great anyways.

Thanks T'Horde.

Bare in mind everyone, re. polishing: These are special paints that are intended to be polished, you can't do this with any paint.
What I'm using is the Humbrol Metalcote range. Other paints do exist.
I have 3 flavours, Gunmetal (the darker of the 2 above), Polished steel (the lighter one above), and Aluminium.
While the first 2 work well, the Aluminium one doesn't really do much, no matter how much you mix it, polish it, threaten it...
So ymmv.

Thanks Cam'. I have used graphite to give a shiny edge to something before, but not on a full surface.
The thing with graphite is that it'll rub off with minor handling and would therefore need sealing in, and that can dull the shine.
These paints shouldn't need sealing (hence only using them sparingly on these models) and should actually get shinier with handling... in theory...
They may wear off eventually... but so will any paint... eventually.

Progress on bases (done, minus grass and base edges):


Onwards...

Thanks Theo'. You're not trying hard enough if you don't bring your own piece of tactical terrain with you. However, these chaps didn't get the memo and are stood on the terrain, not hiding behind it.

Thanks Gits'.

Thanks Graven'. A fairly easy job to do with my wooden box kit.

Thanks Cam'.

And a final push to finish them off.
Some light weathering on their armour in the shape of some scorch streaks from re-entry: I envisage them dropping head-first and flipping for final landing, so streaks are top to bottom.
I added a simple blue circle to the left shoulder to keep them chapter neutral without leaving it blank or making it impossible to add your own chapter symbol on top.
Everything else is as you might expect.

Note: I've replaced the photos here due to Git's comment below

Together


Number 1 (fence hopping):


Number 2 (crate landing):


Number 3 (Unique approach to obstacles):


Now the plague caster can get started painting (I also have a little side project to paint), and it's time to start on the next model from the box... already cleaned of mould lines, considering modification options...

I'll drop in to everyone's blogs later...

Excellent work. Is he a bit blue-greyish or is that just a trick of the screaming red background?

Mastering Non-Metallic Metal







Well now that you mention it, Gits', no they are neutral grey.
I'm trying out some new backdrops and thought the red one was a great improvement on the yellow one I tried first.
They were a little green in the original photos, so I may have gone too far with the colour correction.

I'll need better photos for Etsy, so I'll try another background and do a better job of colour correction.

Stay tuned for more photos...

The Malignant Plaguecaster is now primed and blacked...


I'm thinking bright colours for this one;
Bright, but sickly, green for the armour,
"fresh" orange rust for the trim,
and a bright colour for some magic affects (as if he's summoning the tentacles).

Will get the skin / fleshy / guts bits done first though...

Still needs the final highlighting on that green, but that's the general tone.

I've also started on the Ancient.
Not a lot that can be changed about the mini' without completely changing the mini', which defeats the purpose of using the mini'.
But have a good basing idea for him... that's in progress.

I did say I was going bright and colourful with the plaguecaster...

Yeah, that can work.

Not sure what colour the hood will end up, will need to have a look at a colour wheel to see what can match the green and orange... and the purple tentacles.

And the Ancient is ready.
