Update - finished all the black-then-silver, almost done brown (gold trim underlayer), next is chipping, then gold... of all these steps it's the brown that is the most tedious on CSMs...

Pics tonight (hopefully)

Novelist - Thanks! The idea for the night vision shots was work-inspired ... As were the intel-report style updates.
Thatguy - Thanks... And me too (on the finished!)

As I continue to work away on these about 32 minutes per every 2nd day or so, I loathe more and more the batch-style of painting, and thus I swear that after this round of The Legion is complete I will hereafter only ever build a model and then paint it!

So spoketh Lamby!

Thanks for looking!

Looks awesome man! Keep up the good work. You're giving me inspiration to finish my army.

I went a lot simpler on these bases than my previous army (Blood Ravens) trying for a more subtle canvas to let the mini shine.

Step 1:
PVA glue down medium shale and random bit of junk metal (well, plastic, but you get the idea...)


Step 2:
Once that's dry, smear that Vallejo plastic putty (in the pic) on the rest of the base, and sprinkle it with baking soda to get some texture.
When it's all dry, liberally paint the whole thing with 50/50 PVA/water mix


Step 3:
Spray black undercoat.


... more to follow.

Cheers!

Due to overwhelming demand, the basing steps continue...

Step 4:
Dark Flesh wash.


Step 5:
Iyanden Darksun dry brush.


Step 6:
Space Wolves Grey dry brush - imho this is still the best dry-brush paint Citadel ever produced


Step 7+8:
Boltgun Metal dry brush the metal scrap
then,
Nuln Oil wash the lot.


Step 9:
Dark Flesh rust/chipping effect using sponge and/or really old brush


And this base is done!
