Grats on all the mass progress! I keep meaning to ask, is the plan to do brown/tan bases ala the test warriors?

Thanks guys!

Yeah, the bases will be brown(ish). With rusty metal protrudings. At least that has been my plan. I'm hoping that pigment powders will do most of the work here.

Throughout this week there's only been a few minor touch-ups and refining of details. I just gave the whole army a quick spray gloss varnish (except for the Land Speeder that still needs a base). So this evening I'll be mostly staining everything with oil washes (starting with black and brown, might add deep blue in there if I feel like).

+++REDACTED+++ Space Marines oil washed and pigment powdered

Last Friday evening (and night) was spent oil washing the whole army (except for the Land Speeder that I still need to built a base for). I slapped some diluted black (with a hint of brown and blue) on everything, and then touched all the white and bone areas (including shoulder pads and robes) as well as the lower parts of the legs with Yellow Ochre kind of a mix. Then cleaned most off with cotton buds.

To accompany the traditionally crappy group shot, here's a closeup from a few chosen Marine brothers. And all the cotton buds.

Today I did some hasty work on the bases. They're not done by any means, but it was a good start! Wasn't exactly sure how to do them, so tried something a bit different for each and every unit. Mainly there's just heaps of Burnt Umber pigment powder, followed by something that says "Kymin Okra" on the little jar. It's that orangey tone that can be seen best on the upmost row of Marines. On some squads I sealed these down with Vallejo's Pigment Binder, and others with cheap fixative spray. After a few squads I felt a bit more brown was needed, so I decided to paint the rest of the bases brown (with a mix roughly close to the Burnt Umber). I mixed in a few drops of the Pigment Binder and random pigments to that brown paint. It was then easy to clean / stain the legs when needed, since the Binder slows down the drying time. Didn't need to worry about getting brown on wrong places.

+++REDACTED+++ Space Marines army is now READY

This army is now ready and painted. Didn't finish the Land Speeder though, otherwise this would be exactly 2000 points worth of Warhammer 40k 9th edition Space Marines batch painted. Since the last post I've done quite a lot of touch ups, weathering, fine highlighting and details here and there. Forgot to take notes and pics of most steps since there were many. I might try to memorize and write down some of the key things. I think I learnt a lot about batch painting routines, fine detailing (and sometimes deciding NOT to do it), retarder mediums, oil washes and pigment powders this time around. And I'll take better pics of everything later on, also focusing on some of the nice details here and there. But now I'll start working on some TERRAIN for a change. Just bought fake plastic plants and polystyrene balls (you remember the old school green cacti with bright red spikes from the White Dwarfs, RIGHT!?).

Anyways, here's a few WIP shots and then some of the finished ones. Praise the Emperor.

An entire 2000 point army in a month.

Cheers,

PS: OK, so technically not 2000 points with one model missing, but you can add gear to Sergeants, squads, vehicles, and characters to get really close.

Wow, that went fast! I like how they're recognizably your style despite not being outlandish Chaos beings ^^ But then, seeing the 'Redacted' info in the title, who knows what's under the power armour ...
