Looks very nice. One thing that stands out to me is the separation of the mini and the base. While weathered, the dread has clean feet. The base is either glistening mud, or the dread has a hydraulics leak and made a puddle. If the base is mud, I’d expect to see some muck about the lower legs/feet.

(Not to be critical, I like the work you’ve done. Just something that seemed off to me)

Lovely skills on display here.
For my preference I like more contrast, but thats just my preference.
Your blending and weathering looks great. Pose also nice.

For a newby I can't see anything wrong with your models, they are certainly tabletop quality, I think bad lightning is the main thing though, try a plain white background or a darker stand, using the black and the white confuddles the camera's autobalancing

I'm a first time comp participant too. Maybe there should be a second vote for best rookie (although I've been painting on and off for 20+ years, I'm a rookie to this comp, and no better than table top standard anyway). Rookie's could maybe be anyone who's entered 3 times or fewer.

Finished!

Not in it to win it, as there's some incredible stuff already on this thread! But as they are the first Marines I've finished in about 16 or 17 years, I'm fairly happy with them. The black / white split harks back to my childhood Marines, who were half black / half silver, the story being that half the chapter fell to chaos, so the armour was painted half black in penance. The more fallen comrades you kill, the whiter your armour gets!

Congratz Tsukuru, good job on finishing them. the black and white with blue trim works very nicely.

Keep up the good work Loricatus Aurora looks like you have made some good process, only a day left now tho.

These were more of a build than a paint, I wanted to see if I could make the missile launcher armature, and if I could get a bolter with a stock actually look like it was tucked into someones shoulder.




Every month I keep telling myself, "I will buy a better camera and stop using my phone." Never happens.

This being my second entry, I considered this as a suggestion but decided not to. I have to admit that I like being side by side with all the entries straight off the bat, as it makes me aspire to do better paintjobs on my models - If I were to win a rookie-award, it would feel a tad like a consolidation prize to me, instead of just doing what I could to prove my painting beside the other contestants.

I do get where you're coming from though, as it can be daunting to enter a competition of talented painters like this one - The display of skill and craftsmanship is stunning! Just keep at it and if you need any tips and/or guides, head to peoples project logs. They are usually very helpfull and glad to explain how they achieve the particular look they have on their miniatures.

Hey Para, I know it's a bit late, but I'd like to change my entry.
After all these serious SM I've seen, I'd like to enter a real SM WITHOUT any Orkiness in it

I basecoated him in the morning and am working on him today.

Proof is with the first layer of paint on it. Hope it fits the rules.

PS Depending on the fact that I finish him today

I, too, am done.

Really annoying, I knew that his knife was somewhere, but in looking at how to paint it saw that he was missing his chain crux and his elbow shield thing - FORTUNATELY managed to find that in the first box I looked in, after I had completely reorganised everything yesterday looking for the bloody knife.

Then I had to colour match the silver and gold, without airbrushing or oil washing - I WAS FINISHED LIKE TWO WEEKS AGO AND STILL MANAGED TO LEAVE IT TO THE LAST MINUTE!

Anyway, here is my Ultramarine Deathwatch Space Marine
