Your painting looks pretty good, but your lighting is really awful. Get a desk lamp, point it at the models, and put a piece of paper behind them to reflect light.

Some bits look a bit glossy, like the Nob on the far right in the last picture. Is this intentional? How are you doing this? If you're using washes without shaking them up first, they will often dry glossy.

Your painting skills are solid. You've got a good grasp of highlighting and weathering, and that Crusader looks baller. I'm really not a fan of the grass on the bases though; covering the entire base looks sloppy, and I personally prefer a smooth beveled edge as opposed to having every model standing on a moss pile. Also, is that HELBRECHT and all that text on the side of the Crusader a transfer or freehand? If it's freehand, then I'm sincerely impressed.

You've got some good stuff here, you just need a little refinement here and there, and to drill out your barrels. Keep it up!

If you paint the sides brown or black it will really add some contrast.

Love the land raider crusader. I wish i could do the small writen.

Tali'Zorah: I appreciate what you're doing here, Shepard.
Commander Shepard: Well, I care deeply about the quarian people.
Tali'Zorah: It's good to be back on the Normandy.
Commander Shepard: Let me know if it's too quiet for you to sleep, and I'll find you someplace louder.
Tali'Zorah: Hmm.
Garrus Vakarian: Uh, I was there when you two had your thing, remember? Just get a room and work it out.

wait you are asking a question, sorry I can be stupid sometimes. pinning is when you drill a hole with a pin vice in the two places you wish to stick together. eg. an arm and a torso. you then stick a peice of paper clip into the hole. when you sick the two peices together they create a strong bond.

I will post some pics tommorow of how to pin, pretty easy really.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
you could also use corking for the bases, it creates the smae sort of effect. my gallery has some examples if you want to have a look. (I just realised I am starting to hock my own crap )

Very nice! The painting is very solid and they will look even better on more scenic bases!

The head swap on the warboss seems a little off, though; it takes some of the vinegar out of his pose. It is painted really well, but after seeing the AOBR with the angry face time and time again, it stands out.

nice touches on the bases!

How many Space Marines does it take to screw in a lightbulb.

6, 1 techpriest and 5 tacticals that stand around trying to pose like badasses.


An Ork, Space Marine and Eldar are´╗┐ walking down the road. They see a Chaos portal that has a sign on it. It says: 'say what is true or be sucked in'. The Space Marine says: "I think I'm the bravest" and walks past safely, the Eldar says: "I think I'm the most agile" and walks past safely. The Ork says: "Me thinks..." and gets sucked into the portal.
