Ha ha, ahh you made me feel bad about lurking. I have been watching this thread for a while.
I like the colour schemes and nice painting.

Interesting colours for the base, I shall have to give it a go as I usually paint my rocks dark grey followed by lighter grey and then even lighter grey.

Looking forward to seeing more

Dr H - Cheers - the 'overwhelming demand' comment *may* have been a bit cheeky , but after 5 posts with no replies... anyway, Thanks for looking and commenting!

No worries. It can get like that sometimes in here. It's easy to think you're talking to yourself sometimes.

New dude looks good. I like how you get them looking ancient and battered but still functional.
You may have mentioned it earlier but is that done with washes or something else?

Dr H - so the weathering is as simple as I could make it, after the 6 layer green recipe which nearly drove me insane!

After completing the green (highlights and all) i sponged Dark Flesh carefully at first, and then later carelessly (you can see the first 3 are slightly less chipped than the next 3) over all the green and silver - I painted the gold after the chipping but before the wash.

Then I sprayed them with gloss varnish and applied an all over wash of Winsor and Newton brown oil paint - the oil runs nicely into crevices and after a few drying minutes I went back in with a make-up applicator and removed the wash where i didn't want it.
Seriously, try oil washes - no pooling like acrylic and if you don't want it somewhere you basically just wipe it away!
(Does take at least 24 hours to dry completely.)

When that dried, I went back in with a small dry-brush and applied highlights back to the silvers, then high-lighted the gold and did some minor extra chipping where it was needed.

Finally I've added some very light washes on the silvers using Nuln Oil and Liche Purple - it's subtle and doesn't really show in the pics, but makes a huge difference to blades especially.

Hope that helps!

Squigsquasher - Thanks! The cloaks are a combo of red washes in the shadow areas over a base coat of Dheneb Stone, then Space Wolves Grey dry-brushing the raised areas, then the oil wash, then another dry brush... happy accident really!

Here's a shot of the latest three together...

Dr H - Cheers! That's the look I was going for - I think it's all in the legs, they're GK Space Marine legs, which have slightly more dynamic poses than the original SM range.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Cheers.

Really love that Heavy Flamer conversion, and the blog in general.

What ever happened to those epic terminators that you made a good while ago?

And those Mournblade Terminators... they still exist. I scrapped the 3rd build (the Lord) so there's only the two - and they sit on my desk staring at me, daring me to paint them... maybe...
(But I still have nightmares about painting the green...)

Very nice, Lamby! They are all looking great!

And, yes, I love that minigunner, too, you did a great job with him!

Re-model on the weapons to provide some more area for hazard stripes - and reduce the amount of gold 'bling' to paint - and the base is ready for painting:
