Huge congrats for finishing a whole boxed set! That's a feat that I've yet to accomplish (if you don't count Underworlds starter sets..). The reds look great on Vorne, Espern and Janus, and the blues complement them well. And the flames on Vorne's torch are gorgeous! I think I need to check out Darren's video and try it out the next time I'm painting flames..

Thanks turtles, Regal Blue is a really nice colour, but it keeps separating on my palette, hopefully it won’t be noticeable on the minis.

What's happening with the bases? What have you used on there already?

Yeah, I’ve been excited to do these for quite a while. Their bases have battlefield mud on them, I think it’s from warlord games. Theyll be getting a less trampled version of the muddy bases that my 2nd Ed boxset Gretchen got a couple of pages back, Assault on the Muddy Farm?

Thanks Maharg, I appreciate it! Now the boltgun metal is out of the way the Terminators shouldn’t be too bad. After 30 grots I’m hoping I can handle 7 terminators!

The Terminators look like great fun, shame you had to pull the arms off mid paint but I am sure they will come out fine. I think a lighter blue helmet on the libby will look great to differentiate him, a nice mix between the painting of the time and more recent lore.

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors, I’d nearly forgotten about the lighter hood on the Librarian, il have to do that next painting sesh cheers for the reminder!

I did a decent bit on the terminators tonight, and thought I’d throw the captain and librarian in to the painting challenge. I’m hoping they didn’t have too much paint on them for the submission



I finished off the boltgun metal, god I hate that paint!

Gave it a wash of nylon oil, god I love this paint!

Dry brush of boltgun

Then a mithril silver dry brush

Followed by tidying up the 5 man squads Regal Blue

Those last two are the same pic as I forgot the photo post silver! They’re coming along nicely now, I’m going to do their belts and casings black now, so will block them in and their first before more washing then on to the fun bit of highlighting!

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Don Qui Hotep, there will be more soon as I’ve also got the Escalation box set awaiting building. Hopefully I’ll do the terminators justice.

Got a few minutes of painting in tonight. I finished neatening up the blue on all of them then I decided to paint the librarians Psychic hood thing Enchanted Blue.

And now I can’t decide whether I like it or not. On the RTB9 boxset the Blood Angels librarian is all in red and gold, but I quite like the idea of adding some lighter blue to him. I thought the hood would be a good nod to the new Librarian colours, but right now I’m thinking it looks a bit like a baby’s bonnet. So far that’s all I’ve gone enchanted blue on, I had thought about his left terminator cross shoulder pad and possibly his shield. Now I’m not sure, what do you guys think? Go back, stick or twist and go for more Enchanted Blue bits?

Thanks for looking and hoping you guys can give me a steer!

Edit: Looking at the pics again I wonder if post highlights it might be less obviously different?”

Now you've mentioned baby bonnet I was to to see him with a little purity bow on his head

If you're going to do add more light b!he I'd say stick to the shield and not th be shoulder pad - adding the pad might look a little too much like tell enemy armour where the techmarine has got his paint mix wrong.

At present I'd say the !lighter helm works, and post highlights that should also be highlighted so should continue to stand out. If you were to change it up what would be your choice of colour?

It actually reminds me of a cat wearing a tennis ball! Super cute!

I do think a different color than blue would be the way to go. If you do want to keep it blue, I'd probably paint it the same color as the rest of the model.

Anyhoo, no matter what you choose I'm sure it will look wonderful when it's finished, I'll be interested to see what you go with.

I would recommend lightening the helmet/bonnet/hood until the final edging is pure white. That will give the contrast to the other Terminators.

My two cents,

As much as I like the idea of a purity bow on his bonnet, I’m not convinced it’s grim dark enough . I think you’re right on too much baby blue will look a bit odd. Being boring I’d probably just go back to Regal Blue.

I can see the tennis ball resemblance! I think I’m going to stick with the light blue for now. Tempted a add something to the coil type bits but might just do them like vents.

I think that’s a cool idea, I’ll probably need to mix up some mid-tones, but that only adds to the fun!

More progress this evening, they now have Crimson Fists! First bit was to finish neatening up the blue post metal dry brushing;

Then it was going for black belts and pouches, as well as black weapon casings. I was torn on whether the chainfists counted as weapons or fists, a critical choice for Crimson Fists

As you can see I decided they were more fist than weapon, it’s in their name after all, so they went Khorne Red. As did all their fist (obviously!) and going a bit retro the trim on their shoulder pads and legs did too.

I decided to go for the Rogue Trader era stripe down their helmets, and I’m really pleased how they’ve turned out so far. One or two need a bit of a touch up, but they mostly narrow to a tip at the nose and top of the helmet. Just like they did on the old beakies. I’ll highlight them all up to be the same red as their fists and then I’ll have a decision to make. As Terminators they’re veterans, so according to pics I’ve seen on the internet, should have horizontal black stripes on the red bits. The Sergeant should then get a yellow stripe either side of the red bit. The Sgt stripes, I think, should be ok, but black is scary.

In other news I checked Amazon again today and they had more of the better priced display boxes of Space Marine Heroes Series 1. I’ve pretty much decided that only specifically Space Wolves miniatures will be painted as such. Any 2nd Editions Marines will be Blood Angels with Rogue Trader guys being Crimson Fists. Any newer Space Marines I’ve decided to go away from the traditional Chapters and find something a little different. I’m not decided on a Chapter as yet, but I’ll probably stay away from Red and Boltgun ing Metal as main colours and I want some variety, like different coloured helmets. I could be tempted to try a quartered or halved scheme too. I’ll try to get a shortlist together soon. Black and Purple are also tempting to maybe give them a route to allying with my Purplish Black Legion from Blackstone Fortress.

I also ordered an SD card reader for my iPhone, which should allow me break out my bridge camera to see if I can take better pics. That in itself is a bit worrying as I’ll then be able to see all of the flaws clearer!

Anyway, rambling post over, thanks for looking!

I like the stripes! You've got some exciting plans for the future. For me personally I'm not a huge fan of halved or quartered color schemes, especially when one of the color choices is much darker than the other. But I think from a painting point of view they must pose really exciting challenges. Regardless I think you'd crush it.

Cheers Cap, making slow progress this week though.

My SD Card reader for my phone has arrived, now I need to get my camera battery charged to see if it works still. I probably should’ve checked that first, but fingers crossed! The rest of my Amazon order has yet to arrive but I’ve been giving thought on colour schemes for my new old
marines. As a big fan of ListenToMeWarriors’ Celestial Lions and sockwithaticket’s Crimson Tears I’m tempted by those, but also considering using some old transfers and putting my own spin on them. I’m tempted to switch the Lions’ blue for purple or change the Tears to Mortificators. As mentioned above, the quad or half scheme could be fun to try, with Nova Marines being the favourite but something more multi coloured like the Emperors Shields are quite cool. Then again something more plain like the Knights of Gryphonne is pretty cool. Quite some time to decide what way to go.

The RTB9 Crimson Fists made a bit of progress, their Khorne Red got a second coat and the Nuln Oil wash was then added to the recesses

I’ve now started the process of tidying up their regal blue, but the kids decided to camp in the backyard, so tonight’s session was short. 2 out of 7 is where I’ve gotten to, slow and steady but making a bit of progress. Compared to the Blackstone Fortress minis the cast quality is somewhat lacking, but that’s 30 years or so worth of improvements I guess! It does seem to make the close up pics look to have a much tougher surface finish than they look in person. Or maybe I’m just making excuses for doing a poor job at thinning my paints properly! Which always seems an odd thing to do, why don’t companies get that right?

Anyways, Thanks for looking!

Slow and steady wins the race apparently, but right now it’s a way off.

In between fiddling with my old camera I finished cleaning up the Regal Blue on the Terminators. Then rather than start highlighting the blue I did a short experiment following the Warhammer Community photography guide. Camera aside I tweaked the lighting position which seems to have helped and then went for a back to back with my phone to see which is better




Surprisingly there’s not much in it, but the Camera has a much wider focus distance. Even the captain at the back is in focus. I think the exposure length was a bit long so the blue is a bit brighter than in real life, but not bad for a first try with a more sophisticated camera. When they’re done I’ll be sure to get some more camera pics and have a good experiment with what works.

Thanks for looking, hopefully some more interesting bits next time!

The Terminators look good already. Keep up the good work!

Playing around with camera settings can be daunting at first, but it will be very much worth it in the end.
At least for me it took a while, but I'm slowly learning with the help of fellow hobbyists and patience.
