Not sure I'm really as done with the Dread as I'd like, but I'm leaving it for the time being. Need to get moving o n the rest of the troops!

Yeah I'd rather paint than do my house work >< really supposed to be cleaning right now but anyway, I decided Mr Dread need more work. I just love this model!







So of course I decided that's not enough - I want to do white edge highlighting in a few places, grey on the black. I plan to weather the exhaust pipes on his back with "soot" later. Also looking for ideas about his ribbon? (I mean the thing that looks like a ribbon on his chest, I dunno what to call it) I've been considering doing it with silver, or gold. Gold to match the brass, silver to match my theme though... and what to 'write' on it? I was thinking legion mottos, like Lupercal but I'm not really sure. I don't have a lot of (any) reference material for space marines so help is appreciated!

@TP^DC, Thanks! I wish my free hand was better =/ but hopefully practice will help

this is my probably mostly finished WIP of my Wyrd Iron painter entry:







At this point I'm trying to wait a bit to see what all I missed or need to fix, but I think I'm prolly done. I had in mind a kind of diorama originally but after doing the ork, I just liked him too much as he was to change it.

Awesome looking Luna Wolves.

Nice terrain too, you could totally use that as an Ork Void Shield Generator.

Ayup, son's ghostark

he's wanting a kind of brushed gold look to it, so I started with a balthasar gold base, black with blue trim and I'm going to probably drybrush a layer of Vallejo Old Gold over it (my fave gold colour tbh). Started a test piece in the above pic.

It's meant to look a lot more like an Amarran ship - for any who've played Eve Online - and for those who haven't here's a ref pic of my little punisher frigate:

Got most of the brown (rhinox hide) undercoat done, then on to the black bits and put bronze over top of the brown.

Another dryfitting:




Got some more work done on the 'Ark - mostly the bronze layer and start of the black.

Gotta tell you that bronze has grown on me. My only concern is that I'm not convinced it will fit in with the rest of the army colour-wise

mine as well actually :( I'm hoping the black bits with blue will help pull it off... I guess we'll see. Playboy really likes it so that's good (it's his army).

I'm thinking about the death immortals he wants done as well, having more bronze plates (to set them apart more plus match), with the same bases as the other necron warriors (from earlier). Not sure if that'll work or just look strange. I may have to just go for it with one and see how it turns out.

Just for fun, he came by my desk while I was painting and started commenting how the necron warriors I was drybrushing to go inside the ghostark, needed to have different coloured wires leading to their chest piece, which should be glowing... I gave him the mommy stare and was like, "Do you want to paint these?!" he quickly departed

Lol. Hilarious. My children are just a bit too little for that to be in any way effective, I can't wait til the "daddy stare" has full effect

Your idea with the Inmortals will be very effective. Shame the ship is already black otherwise you could have done that bronze too to signify that "big" (size and status) has those colours. As you say, carefully introduce it elsewhere and it will all fit together in the end I expect.

not very good pic, took on my phone but just an update of the WIP Ghostark for my son

it was really hard to line up the driver, his hips, the three cables and the chair itself on this model... he's a bit crooked unfortunately. I'm working on his arms and the ribs now. And the guns, which I actually forgot to cut off the sprue lol

Finally got pics of my Ghostark - silly guns keep falling off grrr hopefully they'll stay on this time sigh. I can see that'll be a fun transport issue.

Thank you! am quite pleased it's finished that's for sure! Hopefully my son will get to use it this sunday in his first game - we're still not 100% on the rules so we're just bringing everything completed plus a couple HQ proxies til his birthday order comes in (Necron Get started box)

Also we have a unique (sort of) solution to the whole issue with his nightscythe/flyer being black and blue... I'm buying more lol well I will. Eventually (probably Christmas). His younger brother (my #3) is quite enamored of ships, as well, and I'm half-way hoping I can talk him into actually playing (he also likes Necrons, in case it's not obvious... so he's keeping the black one for now.)

Need to work on a colour scheme for #2's Deathmarks, which I just finished putting together. I'm thinking mostly black with the copper/bronze highlights - he wants them stealthy, but at the same time they need something to help tie them together with the main army theme. [I'm horribly tempted to paint them with Cylon eyes though...]

Other current projects: a Luna Wolves Rhino, which I'm doing a little converting on; 5 more Luna Wolves; 10 Giant Rats (out of my Skaven Stash of 69); finishing my Portal Terrain of course, erm... yeah so lots going on. I'm a take pics in the morning when the lights better.

yeah it looks nice when finished and all but putting all those warriors in it... ugh

Gotta WIP pic of my rhino - although it's possibly getting more armed than it should I don't care, it's more for fluff probably never going to play with it (well you know, like, against other people... in a game.... not on my table running around making shooty noises - cuz I never do that!)
