[url][spoiler]hi guys! Allow myself to introduce...myself...>_< Ive been lurking in the corner of this site admiring the insane amount of talent and inspiration that comes through here, but have yet to make an appearance myself...Im an avid painter and 40k player, and ive been working on my catachan army for over 2 years now i think ive finally summoned enough courage to share my work and have it be torn apart. lol. i dont know if this is the forum to do that so i will just upload one pic, as a teaser, and if there is any interest ill upload many more as somewhat of a "post project log"; as most of the army is now completed except for a very few things here and there. Im a painter primarily, not as much of a scratch build tank modeller, so i hope that doesn't dissapoint you. my army still is very unique i think (besides being 1 of the 4 catachan armies in existence apparently) anyways...enough chatting lol....here is the company command squad, which i will update more pics of should i get the green light to do so. im not a professional photographer but i think its *pretty close* to being as good as it can get..i dunno...anyways..be kind to my soul, and i hope you enjoy!
cheers everyone!

Nice banner. I'm liking these guys, especially that Banner. Some pretty incredible freehand.

Niice, dude, I am also a huge Catachan fan. I am building my FW Marauder Destroyer to support my full platoon and Armored column of Catachans. I tell you what, I'll show you mine if you show me yours? Catachans that is

I've been colloecting mine for 10 years, still don't have them all painted, plus I keep picking up the OOP metal Catachans wherever I see them

Lovely job, loads of character in these. A good overgrown jungle base really adds to the Catachans and the flowers add a splash of colour and interest! Great advisors too. And as always it's good to see Guard that isn't Cadians or Death Korps...

Thanks for all the nice feedback! I will continue to post more things and i hope i keep your interest. Speaking of which, for the sake of this log, i dont thiink i should post all the best stuff right up front, ill give it all away instead i think i shall post the troops, however ashamed of them i am, and get that out of the way For your curiousity, i aimed to strike a solid balance with my foot troops of speed and cleanliness. i have gone with blobsquad list so ive painted quite a number of them. The inspiration of the color scheme comes somewhat from what i imagined as a sci fi retake on 1960's south east asian communist schemes....i think why many people avoid catachan armies is because there is a lot of flesh to paint. for this reason, i used a mascara applicator to drybrush after badab black wash the highlights for the fatigues....this allowed me to spend more time on flesh and not drybrush but blend and feather as normal i think ihit the middle road with speed vs cleanliness vs style....the effect is this




I will continue to upload more inclusive pics of the full squads of 2 x 30 and weapons teams...these are just to start. feedback welcomed

blah im having trouble posting now...3rd attempt lol...ok here is the comissar and blob squads. i still have the 2nd commissar to do...

Awesome. The bases make me think of Pandora from Avatar so this makes me extra happy because I imagine the IG would wipe out those blue giant cat freaks if they came across them.

i don´t see anything to be ashamed of...in fact the soldiers look like you can justified feel mighty proud of the lot of them...

as you stated you used a mascara applicator for drybrushing... could you show us the tool and maybe a slight tut on how you did it? it seems that this might be a nice twist in the craft and i would like to learn a new trick...all the more if it is a nice mixture between fast and clean^^

cheers, vik

oh and by the way, i realy like a generall that names his troops...strictly speaking against the fluff as all IG´s appear only to be connonfodder but you give them purpose and personality...that counts for a lot in my book for a good leader^^

Here is the second update of the blob squads....platoon beta...after this i will wait to upload platoon commands and put up pics of something sweeter, and finish the grunt work later

@ vik, thanks for your interest! I suppose my shame comes from being slightly intimidated at the level of mastery here, and as far as my own endeavors, i aimed to paint "the horde" with speed and style, not so much detailed. I simply cant approach painting a huge group of minis the same way i approach my elites and character models...im too OCD and ill go insane with that said, i feel i came up with a pretty stylish and solid answer to it. As far as your question about the mascara applicator. below, along side more pics of the grunts, which im almost done posting them so i can move on to the real fun stuff, are pics of the brushes in question. My general feeling about drybushing is that, if used improperly, can make models look chalky. And by improperly, i mean, to paint something fast, like drybrushing flesh...lol...So i generally, never use it if im painting a model to the standard of which i like. Of course, "do as i say not as i do", i used it to paint the bulk green color of my army ! lol. The mascara applicator essentially, for some reason, turns the paint in question, to a dust of some sort, while drying on the brush. And you get a much more powdery effect. Its very well used, in my opinion, on tanks...which i will show later. I also tried to counter act the chalkyness, by using dheneb stone as a mix in my highlight...not white. Anyways, the only down side is that it uses more paint to be effective, and you have to explain to drugstore clerk why your buying female makeup accessories...of course this being one case where admitting its for painting toy soldiers is the lesser of two evils

lol !! Yep they certainly are. I decided when starting the army, that i never see foliage that is at least as dominating on the base as the mini itself...i wanted the soldier to look as if he was IN the jungle, not just standing on it...i went to petco, here in los angeles before actually doing any painting. the pink flowers caught my eye immediately and thus i based the whole army indirectly around those pink flowers. i even game with some frosted pink die. LOL. the effect hopefully, that when the army is together it looks really immersed in the foliage of the planet. and all this before avatar! that movie just sparked my inspiration ever further!

LOL the lesser of two evils... that cracked me up something fierce lol^^

at first i thought you gad meant those spiral formed ones women use for their eyelashs...and thus i was confused...the brushes you use make total sense and i even own one already^^ baught in a cheap shop in a big set with other eventually useful tools^^ but i guess i will shortly look for some better ones as my own looses bristles aplenty whenver i try to use it... as for drybrushing and chalkyness... too true and goes to show that drybrushing is not a supreme problemsolver! but sometimes can do great nevertheless^^
i really like the masses of ranks you have shown on the last pics of yours! that reminds me of old times when i used to play (to cinder^^) my plastic soldiers... the green ones like toystory^^ , but in a good way^^
also i think you wet again my apettite toget on with my own masses of catachan minis i still have mostly untouched lying around...only prob still is the concept and the scheme behind mine...well some day i will find a good scheme...

as for some detailshots... there is on the lower right corner of the last pic a guy, it seems he is holding a piece of sprue that looks like a demo charge??? i would love to see a closer look at him...and if you can what you used to make him...^^


very cool army and i hope this can go on endlessly^^
