Hey there, I'm just going to post work in progress stuff that I feel like doing. You know.. Just casual (I'll paint any figure under 10 bucks any color you want and name it anything you want to the person who gets that reference first )

Working on my chaplain. I cleaned him up and I'm fixing up his base. Be prepared: lots of photos on their way.

Alright I made the chaplain's base. I need to put a brass rod and or flying base stick thingy and attack my chaplain (once painted).

I have photos of the base, including a rough tutorial (photos only)

The pictures do the base no glory. The base has 2 shades of grey, black and white. As does the flying base mounted.

Wow! Im surprised noones posted yet. The base is spectacular! The space marine I cant see too well, however the lava looks awesome. Im actually thinking of putting that kind of look on my orks.

Thanks a lot I'm glad to finally know someone has at least seen my work

Do you need help on how to do it? And that's a good idea, I'll do that when I get my orks from AoBR. Never really thought of it on orks, it just doesn't seem fitting in my eye Could be pretty original and cool though

Well, at this point its just an idea, originated from my bikes. Im actually working on restarting my army and I need a new color scheme, so nothings final yet.
Anyways, I want to see more with this stuff so keep posting!

Sure thing. Right now I'm in my bed reading up on the Ork Codex, but I primed the Chaplain's 3 pieces and I may paint them later tonight. (it's nearly 4 am my time)

Hey BoA... I'm here!

Nice base. two suggestions.

1. Put little spots of very light yellow or white or super light orange to serve as bright spots where the magma is breaking through at a hot point.
2. Mix your orange or red with the same grey you used for the stone and use that to highlight the stones right next to the lava... makes for a very convincing OSL on a lava base (a-la Pyriel-).

Yay

I was hesitating for the white, because I have no light yellow so I was afraid it might look out of place, and the yellow paint (as you may be able to see) is very very old and drying up so i couldn't mix it.

I was going to use the red ink-ish wash-ish stuff, but I didn't think it would convey the idea enough. I'll try it out, thanks Git

Don't go straight to white... get some water in that thick paint and shake the bejeezus out of it, then mix it with your orange or yellow... that should be your lightest color. Only little touches too, you won't need much.

I've tried before, it never seems to work. I'll try again I suppose.

and by the way, it's the yellow that's dry, not the white. Just fyi

Yea, I tried wattering it and now it's just a bubbly-mess of overly diluted yellow paint

I tried putting white but it just didn't look right. I left it as is.

I also started my Chaplain

Alright, progress on the Chaplain

Painted most of his armor the first coat of black.

I made the combi-melta too. I'm quite happy with it, it'll do

At least I gave what a shot? The combi-melta?

And thanks a lot The chaplain isn't nearly done though.

Highlighting, gold, cloth, skulls, crux, chains, pack, arm, eyes..

I've still got a lot to do

I meant a shot at lightening the lava. If you can do the orange mixed with gray on the rocks... that should really get you the OSL effect that you're looking for.

Take your time with the chaplain, enjoy the process. You'll learn more that way and have a better result in the end.

:3 He's looking reaaaaally good (to my standards)

Cloth: 95%
Crux: 90%
Helmet: 99% (spot of green on the nose)
Shoulder: 75%
Skulls: 100%
Armor: 75%
Metal bits and bobs: 90%
Purity Seals: 100%
Jet Pack: 0%
Arm: 0%, but built and primed
Highlighting: 0%

He may end up being my best model

Alright guys, a little update on my nearly-finished model from the Great Marine Swap Thingy for Bob Marley. I'm quite happy with the way he turned out, at first he was looking really bad so I bounced back to make a decent looking model, at least by my standards.

Alright! That looks awesome.
The only thing I can see is that you amy want to look over for any unpainted spots. It may just be the light, but I thought I saw a couple hidden in the back there.
Otherwise, looks great.

not that i dont think its a good model or base, because i really like the model and the base, i just think the positioning should be a little different.... this way, if hes landing, he just wont make it and land in the lava, or he will trip over that rock and faceplant into the lava... hmmm....

He's just starting the jump. He might land in a completely secure, lava-free area. I win
