Krieg! What a hole...

This should be one if not the last update for the Grenadiers, I might get some work on 5601, but I am missing a color, golden metallic, which I doubt is avaible at the store where I got the Tamiya paint, and the GW store is a bit far to go to for only a pot of paint.

All models with a visible hotshot back pack were given a red light (Tamiya Flat Red) like this one, the demo charge is partially visible. Its probably not very noticeable, but I do all my 3 browns in different ways, the air supply is fairly thinned brown, which shows a bit of the black underneath, the leather pouches are normally thinned calthan brown and the shovel handles are calthan brown+either skull white or dhened stone.

I have minor work to do on the breathing tube, pmostly go over the grey spots with black paint then add the thinned calthan brown.



The demo charge, carefully put there to hide an air bubble (?, either way, some damage on the model is now hidden by the demo charge, and its custom made, with a mortar shell and a spare tank of gas from the elysian kit, wooohoooo, paint job sucks a bit, I'd like something to break the monotone)



The vox caster has seen better days, the Grenadier also lost his water bottle, somewhere, poor #4



Working space



Bases! White sand, stones made out of cork, primed, drybrushed with codex grey (or fortress grey) and then more drybrush of dhened stone.



Some bases have space for further items, probably dead stuff.

I really like these, in particular the white gas masks, as that isn't something I've seen that often.

Other than that really nice colour scheme, and have enjoyed watching this progress.

Birthday's coming in a few months, I am thinking about getting PCS and the HF Grenadier pair.

Hopefully I'll get my golden metallic in the meanwhile.

I'll probably still work on 5601 from time to time, after all, he's not going to completely golden!

PCS is a good company with some great products. Good choice. What are you going to use them for? FoW, Bolt Action, Battlegroup Kursk?

By PCS I meant platoon command squad, I am sticking to Krieg models.

Also, googling PCS models gives me nothing, you got me curious, got a link?

I miss read what you typed. I though you typed PSC, and I read the Grenadier part which made me think of Panzergrenadiers

On, a side note these guys do make 28mm models that could work for Valhallan troops.

Your rather monochromatic approach has certainly proved effective! It evokes a somewhat dark image, as if they were present in WW1 archive footage. Also, the contrasting gas masks help bring out faces upon your ranks, showing that these are just normal men, fighting against relentless odds. Great job with the conversion work and painting so far! I hope to see more of this soon. The only constructive criticism I can provide right now would be:
"Put some ink washes over the models to help add depth and shading"
...As you are only starting off you were probably going to do it anyway...
Until then, good luck with any future projects, as I hope to be bombarded with updates.

Looking good.

The units are really coming together now.

Not sure, but the browns on some of the models could do with another highlight...Watered down snakebite leather perhaps?

Keep it up

Oh, sorry. I didn't see that initially. I would suppose that they appear much better in person!
None the less, they still look awesome!

Snakebite for the leather. Some Khemri Brown for the wooden bits should help differentiate them and give them a nice lift.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been a bit slack following my subbed threads. :S

Boom, an update, bet y'all didn't expect that one eh?


5601 in all his not finished glory.


Rather happy with the blood stains, as they match those I see when I cut myself with my sword (Not that I am careless or anything )


He's behind you!


Freehanded the ''93'' squad markings, started with a 5 then I re-read the Siege of Vraks and corrected it.


''The Captain's the only one who can have blood on his sword!''

Also, gonna pass an order to FW soon, so far I am likely to get:
5x engineers
1x heavy flamer grenadier weapon team
2x (might be just one) melta gun grenadier and heavy stubber gunner.

Krieg! What a hole...

Got my Forgeworld order today, and apparently nobody cared that I start working on them a few weeks before my birthday.

So here!

Grenadier Heavy Flamer team, was supposed to come with a 40mm base, got 4 or so 25 mm ones, so improvised





Grenadier Melta gunners, they also have a melta bomb, even tho they can't take that option anymore, and an extra pouch.



Since I got 2 melta gunners, this means I also have 2 heavy stubbers, but I only need one, and each stubber has only 1 man, while the rules says I need a 2 men team, so I made it happen, also, spare bases.





Engineers! Finally something different from Grenadiers, wooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooo















Left over pieces, I already know what to do with them.



My humble bits box




The sculpts are stupidly good, not a single piece was warped and considering that I had 2 heavy stubbers and a heavy flamer, I would say its a miracle, I had to scrap some extra from a single model, I only had to fill in 1 arm, the right arms of the Grenadier that holds all those tubes (which I broke, anyone, if you ever though the tibes from hellguns were bad, you never did a heavy flamer).

Yeah, got a great bunch. Everything is primed as of now, painting will begin soon.

Me too currently looking for ways to do a proper melta burned out muzzle with the limited colors I have, seems I found a nice tutorial for the heavy flamer/flamer.

A chap called rajcze on here has a cool recipe for melta muzzle burn, which I think is quite effective, here's an exmaple and the recipe:



rajcze wrote:
:
* VMC Brass (I guess Tin bitz from GW is the equivalent, but I'm not sure)
* the half of the barrel closer to the gun body, and the recesses washed with devlan mud (so you end up with clean front half of the barrel
* front half washed with Leviathan Purple (slightly feathered into the devlan mud part)
* the "tip" of the barrel washed with thinned Asurmen Blue wash.


Here's a link to his plog for reference, hope this helps:

Tanks? You wish, its a Siege Regiment, not an armored company .

I'll post an update once I am done with the heavy weapon teams.

I'm guessing that means you're nearly there then?

Did you use the melta burn recipe I posted above?
