Hello Dakka folks! Here is a random WIP thread other then my Dark Angels .
I have a commission for a customer who saw my Huron and ask to purchase him along with a 10 man squad. So since this my first commission I decided to post the progress on it.
My DA is taking a back seat for now and will start on the Red Corsairs.
I meant to post this sooner but hey looking for a new job this was sorta secondary.
So here nuff blabbing here it is.

Ok guys a quick update. I am 70% done with my test model and added some gold to the black and red theme. Not to much gold to get confused with khorne heads ! Also stuck with the story with the Wolf of Fenris. ( check his trophy rack )
I got some touch up and basing to do and also started on the second model.
Let me know what you guys think.

Very solid, clean painting.

What airbrush and compressor do you use?

Edit: Gold and silver could use a wash of Devlan Mud. I assume you're planning something like that.

Thank you Mister Feral I am trying to get a really pale look to these guys, kinda like Darth Vader when he removed his helmet.

Popsicle thanks, as for the air brush it is a Badger model 360/universal. It is a syphon and gravity feed model. The front side turns so you can feed a bottle or turn it for gravity. As a compressor it is a generic model with out a tank but does the job I need. I also have a chinese knock off airbrush I bee n using since my automotive days you can purchase this at http://www.tcpglobal.com/ the chinese knock offs are copied from Iwata and does the job for us modelers.
As for washing the metallics yea will have to tone it down a bit !

@Deamon Eater thanks, but my customer wants it simple and not to complex like adding different marine helmets who turned traitor. I just added a trophy to a marine if seen it .

Well guys kinda of a slow start on this commission but will start to hustle tonight and this weekend.
Ok for the update I did Huron's final highlight and details on his head and worked on his base. I will need to finish up details like the gem on his torso and some highlights.
I completed the second marine and finished the base on it I am now working on the third CSM and he should be easy since he does not have that much fluff.
Well enjoy all and let me know what you guys and gals think.

HAZZER yup he was the chapter master of the Astral Claws. If you wanna see what he looked like head to Forge World and you will see him before he turned to the darkside. Also before he took a blast to his noggin from a melta.

LOL... awesome. Just took a look at the FW Huron... damn. He got really ugly!

I like the shade you got from the black primer/red VA color. My FLGS carries a limited supply of air colors... these guys a commission- how many more to do?

Either way, keep it up!

Great red, and I definitely know what a bitch it is to paint over black sometimes. Guess that airbrush is a must for me sometimes soon. And congratulations on your new car, I hope you'll be able to enjoy it without bumping into too many traffic jams.

A question, how did you do the bases? (in particular, Huron's and the colours used)

Yes life of a pirate raiding hopeless imperial ships and outposts does bare its gifts sometimes

Marcin thanks yup for red,yellow and white can be difficult to apply. A airbrush is a must and will save tons of time and headaches. And priming with black I did not want the red to be too bright since red is almost transparent this helped keep a dark tone to it.
As for traffic jams in Northern California its not to bad

Thanks mister feral. I appreciate the positive compliment as for the bases its just basic GW basing kit rocks and regular sand and Huron is Microart Studios 40mm chaos round base. I primed it black with Vallejo Model black dry brushed the rocks with Vallejo Game Colour Cold Gray then used Vallejo pigments applied over the sand. See the picture below.

Sweet! (both for the GKs and the new ride) Is it coincidental your callsign is Grey Death and your car happens to be a shade of grey with custom rims? , er... I mean, a Reaver-class attack ship with custom stealth unit/deflectors?

Haha I might of ordered some of that Burnt Sienna pigment because I really really like the colour of your bases!

Any tips on how to use it successfully? (I've never used the stuff before)

Mister Feral well there are many ways to use pigments. The method I used was applying water or alcohol on the base first on the areas you want to apply the pigment to get a real dry loose earth look. When I want a dried mud look with some hardened protection so it can be handled like on a vehicle I use matte varnish with water to make a paste and then apply it to the model. It will dry like real mud. If you want a wet look use gloss varnish or clear floor wax. Yes floor wax we here in the states use Mop and Glow I don't know what they call it in the UK. Go to YouTube and search sleepylafiel and blacksun studios this is the only 2 channel that has a good video.
Pastels you can use and have tons of colors for half the cost of pigments the downside you need to ground it down to a powder form. Whew that's alot of typing on my phone. Hope this helps.
