Another small update, so i was painting last night on the termi's and i was getting kinda bored so i decided to try something a bit new on one of the black marine squad, and yeah i really liked it.
pics below, im thinking about doing each of the squad in a different scheme, just to break up the monoteny of painting constant nova marines and as a bonus i will get a unit of all different chapters or w/e. should be cool.



just a heads up i did'nt model the heavy bolter guy, i kinda inherited him from a friend who lost the love for the game. but anyway thanks for looking.

thanks for looking

Thanks hazzer, although considering your one of the only peeps who regulary comments on here i dought this is a very widely held oppinion, but thank you greatly anyway.

Well happy birthday Big Fish! And your Novamarines are good. Painting quartered armor is no joke. I did a Howling Griffons army a few years ago and nearly went crazy. I will say this, if you are repainting your brothers marines, are you stripping them first?

Thank you , tbh i have just been going over what he has already done, i really can't be bothered with strippig them when they are only painted black anyway.

more progress and a change of plan,



Remember this guy?



was going to have him as a chaplin but reading the rules for Captain Darnath Lysander and then doing a test game changed my mind (he is amazing, can't beleave i overlooked him!) so yes i have decided this would be a much better use for the model.

more pics



but yeah anyway i half base coated him so far and i am going to leave the shield arm off for painting just so its easyer, but yeah it is looking like its going to be fun to paint

OH I ALMOST FORGOT, i got a box of assault termi's as well so they will being made at some point

thanks for looking

dry fitted my first assault termi very happy so far, going to leave the arms off for painting .



the upside down flying base on the bottom is just to give him a bit more height and i am going to be adding sand over it so it will just look like a bump.

Firstly, happy birthday man! Loving the more termies, btw I've got some assult gyuy too, what I'd recomend is 3 with lighting claws, then 2 with thunderhammers and stromsheilds, if you have a 10 man squad do 5 of each...

ALSO, what do people think of the auto adjusted feature in the daka gallery?

all these images are auto adjusted and all the previous ones are not, which is better? or is it a context thing?

I don't know!

Get some more assult termies (i'd say about 5) because there's very liitle of em! Also try and get 5 more normal termies so you can get some of the upgrades (ie, chainfists, assult cannon, haeavy flamer and cylone missile launcher)!

I think they need a Land Raider to roll around in. Whats the point of being the top dogs if you dont have a nice ride?

Im liking the idea with getting another 5 shooty termi's for the options, and yeah another 5 assult ones would be cool. Im going to wait untill i am more familier with 6th edition before i invest in anythign else though... modling wise though i would really like a 10 man unit of assault termi's just so then i have 2 units of 11 with the chaplin and lysander.

40kFSU wrote:I think they need a Land Raider to roll around in. Whats the point of being the top dogs if you dont have a nice ride?


Agreed they need a ride, but since forge world has that big shiney giant landraider out i am contemplating geting one of them instead of 2 lesser raiders, but tbh it totally depends on what rules they give it and how i find playing the new edition when i get round to it.... but that is a mighty raider.

Ok update



so this is my desk



ok so a few things, lysander shield broke whilst i was basing him and i feel it is an warning of a constant series of breakings to come with this model, its always the ones you like the most that break the most.
Also i got further with the power armour chapy but i am not sure weather i should add blood to him or not, when i play him i am going to put him with the unit of the different chapters and only the sargent of that squad has blood on him. so im a bit about him
Oh and i have compleatly finished the 10 man unit of termi's which tbh feels great, love it when you get to the end of a unit and there is just that sense of "yeah i did that" almost like when you do d.i.y or compleate a painting or something. Anyway thanks for looking

Looking good Bigfish, suggest you make the white in thin multiple layers as I see the undercoat "peeking " through it all.

No worries Bigfish, I myself have little patience for white and yellow due to their translucent nature when I do not want it so.
I have seen others do what you do, and work at pulling white or yellow to make it work.
