thanks guys, stay tuned for much much more im so happy to have kept your interest for this long @ Vik, i think you mean this guy? hes kinda a throwaway model, hes the 2nd platoon command squad medic, except i no longer use medics in my pcc, so him and the other medic stay in mini case, never to see the light of day... where they belong Reluctantly ill show you a close up of this model. i didnt want to buy another command squad box for the syringe part so i "modelled"...albeit poorly, a guy with bandages...so disinterested in this project was i, that i left flash on his knuckles by accident, which then i painted to look like giant gold rings....his name is dr love. how cliche... i think the next update better be something worth looking at lol

as rules goes i am a total noob and never gamed yet at all...so i don´t know of the benifit/unneeded costs of a medic... but i sure have some waiting to get finished for the fun of doing them^^ i knew there was some conversionbit about that mini and to have made DIY bandages is quite a nice idea^^ dr. love... big rings and so on...cliche but evertheless funny^^

also i like his breast pouche...the needful things accesable in a hurry, very good idea!

They are pretty useless, at least in a PCS. OP made the right call. However, you could just use him as a regular dude, or a sergeant or something. Bodyguard. It's perfectly normal for squads to have a medic so maybe he's just not good enough to give FNP.

The medic will stay in the case where he belongs!!!!! RAWR!!!! >_< Actually though, ya honestly its super expensive and a 4th flamer is much more worth it I suppose i could just use him as a basic troop should i ever need it This next update is something a bit more fun! My psyker group. The models themselves scream the 80's cyber punk to me, so instead of cloth robes, i wanted them to look like] pleather kinda...purple pleather at that...i dunno how well the effect is translated to the mini, but i like it anyways...one of my concerns, is that i didnt add osl from the blast i modelled coming out of the ones hand...i can still do that, so perhaps later i will and photo that upgrade project...Also i found an olllllld psyker lying around the local game store, picked him up for 3 bucks and had some fun thoughts bouncing around my head that again i like the end results...anyways...here are some pics i took this morning and before, i hope you like, any advice welcomed...thanks

i think the OSL effect should be done as i think what you showed already is that you are quite capable to deliver a convincing one at that so just do it^^! also i think the "pleather" is quite good achieved with that purple color...and then even the old psyker to go with the squad helps a mileto carry even more the look of the 80`s. somehow the mini of the psyker reminds me of:


which too helps to carry the intended look!

great worke mate!

thanks, but honestly osl is new to me and i still need to wok on my concept. im going to use this mini as my next project, he will be my 2nd commissar and im going to paint the blue osl from his power sword all over his face and upper chest. it will be good practice and a nice change of pace. ill post the updates as i go.

:O my heart is </3 ... hehe im just teasing...personally i like how my color composition came out on him, i wanted to paint him like the warlock from marvel comics...but with an alien head...lol...i painted my self into a corner on this one because i wanted originally for him to have greener skin. that would not have worked..:( so i had to improvise....anyways, thanks for the compliments! Oh, and as far as straken goes, ill eventually get to doing a model for him. Right now, my list is pretty much a gun line, not very catachan-esqe, but hey, manticores are freaking disgusting...lol...

cheers

vik this is the aforementioned comissar ill be working as my next big project

they are pretty pointless unless you are running blob squads in my opinion. a comm lord is sometimes nice, but basically you are paying for stubborn, and its super fun to kill your commissar, then fail a morale check on purpose just to blow the enermy to smithereens the next turn with an executioner. THAT is fun

a few more pics of the psykers taken with the iphone 4 camera. something about this camera makes it in my opinion, a superior way of photoing single minis up close. especially if you want to check your work for flaws. nothing escapes the zoom of an iphone 4

the new pics even better show the plastic feel of the pleather... you can almost hear the faint crackle of the material...^^

i think your next step in painting should be NNM as i think you could manage that pretty well!

NMM scares me ive used it *one* time. On the back side of my company standard. the imp aquila was done using nmm. albeit poorly i think. Er maybe not for a first try but either way, I need to do more study on how light falls on objects....sometimes i feel its unneccesary, but in terms of comic book style influence, which i *try* to draw heavily from (ie. a big influence for me is Steve Oliff from olyptics...early 90's image comics colorist), i think its really awesome. My next army is looking to be a trollblood army for warma/hordes, i may use that as an opportunity for NMM...we shall see

Hey man! The coolest thing about Keith, is that hes the coolest games store owner ever!! If you are ever in beautiful santa monica california, go to aero hobbies Hes the owner
as far as stubble, there are many many great ways to accomplish it. My first approach which can be seen on only a few minis in the army (because i was very unhappy with its appearance, was simply adding (codex) grey to the flesh mix, charodon granite is nice for this too i think. This way is much more effectively done in this guys IG p log on warseer. http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=297534
-the way i do it, is a bit more work, but i prefer the effect: its this:
after the face has been fully painted and highlighted etc etc, mix your flesh color (if its a mixed paint, use that mix), Codex grey, Black, and scorched brown in equal parts...i use a dot of each really because you dont need alot at all. tailor this mix till you get the color you want...less brown tint in my opinion....once mixed add water...this is k ey....too much water will be too thin, too much will paint his face. you want something a little thicker than a gw wash. paint this onto his face approriatly, more than one layer is needed. once satisfied with the tint, add more flesh color into your mix, this time do not add water, rehighlight areas needed and also begin to mix the face and the stubble togther...you can add more flesh if you need starker highlights, but be careful of losing what youve done with your wash....the point is to soften the stubble not paint over it.

anyways i hope thats helpful, thats my way of doing it. there are thousands of great ways and mine may not be the best. if there are any other approaches you guys use, please share them with us

awww... (referring to stubblemaking technique...) this is why cobbling bits together into scenic looking minis is much more rewarding for me than the act of painting... to try this and then fail miserably would mean that i would get so frustrated...grr^^

referring to you NMM try of the aquilla on the back of the banner.... very good looking and i think blended very well! nothing to fear about!

will have to google that guy as i am a marvel addicted (cured^^) and have seldom read anything beside them^^

Vik you crack me up man! I think my explanation of the technique is overly detailed. But for the same reason I'm nervous to try more adventurous osl. The model essentially needs to be done before the effect is added. Thus endangering your work. However, as they say, no risk, no reward!
Ps, olyptics did all of spawn, the Pitt, youngblood etc etc, all the image classics. Those color concepts still stick with me!

ah... now i know what you are talking about!!! and thus oi say... i bow before artists as him...!

and i crack you up? lol^^ i take that as a compliment^^

yep, as OSL and other good and most rewarding techs go they too scare the gak out of me too...thus i haven´t tried them^^ one day i will move to gems and sights over to NMM and then who knows OSl miht be on the way... tho i don´t see that reall soon in my craft^^

some peeps here on this board i think have stated that such techs could be done after some varnishing... so if you faiul you could redo ...tho i be damned if i know how that would be redone then... didn´t really understood that then^^

ill be in NYC for the next week so i wont be able to update as much this week. i thought id post up a pic of 1 of 5 of my ogryn squad i think tho that when i get back instead of posting more pics of the ogryns ill split it up with some vehicles. i just finished 2 of 3 sentinels so ill probably upload some of that when i get home. anyways......here is Ogryn # 1...his name is UNK, he likes quiet nights, white wine, and kittens. and grenades...


this is the inspiration for them


hope you like
feedback appreciated as always!

sure...i wont be able to do that until i get home...im 3000 miles away from my minis at the moment but thanks for the compliment and as far as the ogs go, they are the most recent design of the ogryn model. so, bigger than they used to be even, my plan was to have two squads of 3, but the finecast deal screwed up my progress so i only have 5 done...
