Looking good. Those lootas are awesome. The one with the dead dark eldar is pretty funny and I like how cool the one is with the heavy bolter over his shoulder... and how gung-ho the one with the rokkit pod is.

Top notch work lindsay... seriously.

I love that your army has a nice variety to it, but the tight painting and realistic tones really keep it cohesive at the same time. I also appreciate the work you have put into the icons etc...

Great stuff!

Thanks, I plan to take better photos when the unit's bigger. (Got my distance wrong on these, leading to blurring.)

Thanks, I take this as high praise indeed having taken much inspiration from your CRASSUS.

Going to have a bash at using oils and alcohols as thinners for vehicle weathering at some point, can you recommend a varnish that doesn't dull metallics? My Humbrols kill all pearlessence :(



Coming up next: I'm painting the Kommando unit up, procrastinating about getting fifteen Boyz done, and have had the idea to make Grot orderlies, spanners and ammo carriers as little Headmaster/Targetmaster/Powermaster companions.

'Edmastaz will be Grots with a Nob's disembodied head surgically attached. They paid everything they had on them to have their heads preserved in this way when their bodies were wrecked in battle, and now run after Painboyz hoping for a chance to get grafted onto the body of an unlucky headshot victim. (The Grot can be surgically removed in a later quiet moment, if the Nob fancies risking letting a Painboy near his cranium for a third time.)

Dakkamastaz will be Grots with big guns surgically attached to them. They run after their masters, to be picked up and fired when their sidearm's ammo is depleted.

Powamastaz will be spare engines with a Grot's legs protruding just about far enough that they can run after a Mek. To be used as spare parts for knackered vehicles.

I love those lootas!! Fantastic! Cool ideas for your grots as well. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Those have got to be the coolest lootas ever. I HATE the stupid harness guns. They look so dumb. I Love the guy just holding the rocket launcher above his head. Seems like a good idea.

I loved it, I am sure you will enjoy dipping into oil washes too! Any matte spray will kill metallics by definition... But you can resurrect them a bit with a satin or gloss coat after though
Thank you for the compliment, I am proud it inspired you if this is the result!

I just can't wait to use them in an Apoc game and play the 'Jammers' stratgem.

Transformers the Movie. The 1986 one is by far the best one to date. The new ones are good but they dont compare to the original.

And now I have to watch it again. And I mean right now.

The most heavily turned members of the Genesteela Kult combine the kunnin' of Genestealers and Morkas into the ultimate infiltrator unit. Led by the frenetic Ozzy, they sneak up on da Error-ticks (unbelievers judged to have made the wrong choice) and set about konvertin' them to da Kult.









Ozzy had a basecoat of Hormagaunt purple, with Bleached Bone used t make it paler for the ornery Bugboyz. They all got a wash of one part Leviathan Purple to four parts Thraka Green, then a reapplication of the basecoat followed by Bleached Bone mix on highlighting.

The claws were painted with Gretchin Green, highlighted with Bleached Bone blending, then washed with Hormagaunt Purple. A dry brush (not drybrush) was used to drain it from the raised areas, so as to tint the recesses alone.

Those are pure awesome. Great conversions. And that skin tone is perfect. It works really well.

Yet another beautifully converted and super well painted squad Lindsay! It makes me wish I was better at my conversions/painting... I really like the skin tone and poses. The balls are, of course, also a nice touch.

Also, thanks for the banner and your words in DT's thread. Well spoken. A shame that the mods didn't listen to anything said and just locked it... (Though it's true it was kind of off topic... but you were trying to put in back on topic!)

So I just came across this, and then saw the 1st TF reference. And then more. And then the models. And then the paint. And now your stuck with me. Great, imaginative models, fantastic paint, awesome taste in 80's cartoons.

Wow, really digging the kommandos! This is probably the first time a 40k project has gotten me really interested, but the way you merged the two styles of xeno and yet made a really coherent whole is impressive. Great work!

Any chance of seeing some in progress pics of the paint jobs? I can sort of imagine what you are describing, but seeing the colors go on step by step would be great.
