So I've taken a couple of days off work really just to crack on with all the bare plastic I have before me. I aim to redo pretty much everything that I have already painted too though, as honestly I just don't like them.

I'm starting out on my Space Marines as they've been waiting the longest and I want to get them out to game. Having always been a fan of the Scout models, right back to 5th ed before they were known as Neophytes in my at the time Black Templar army, I figured that I'd start with them.

Before I post pictures though, an explanation. My core chapter is the Sons of Orar, though as I get bored easily with repetitive gak, I figured that I'd include various different chapters of note in this force. The key was simply that they had to be codex chapters, I need to like the scheme, and they needed to fit fluff as to why they were included in my SoO force. My Scouts are therefore from the Scythes of the Emperor - it's a brilliant colour scheme, and as for fluff, I can base them around the SoE's Salvation Teams (small squads that have been sent out to search Hulks for signs of 1st generation Scythe Veterans). I see my Sons of Orar as moving en route to a battle somewhere distant, and having "stumbled" across these various other chapter units as they go, requesting or giving aid in exchange for use of that squads skills in the forthcoming battle. Kind of as you'd see in a video game, where you rescue someone and they add their strength and characteristics to your team.

I've learnt a couple of things in having done this though. 1) I really (like really really really) fething hate painting faces (I knew this already, though it's just reaffirmed it to me) and 2) split armour colour schemes (ie, yellow torse, black everything else) can be hampered when you have a massive sniper rifle, completely covering the yellow torso armour

I don't class these guys as done yet, I don't like the paint job enough to say that, though I need to move on to something else for my own sanity for now, and posting pictures up on Dakka should help with that. Next up, my Sons of Orar Contemptor Dreadnought, airbrush style.

Pictures to follow momentarily, having some trouble linking my camera phone to the laptop...

Yay Kitch is back with another thread! lol i'm glad you've tidied your modeling life up somewhat and are following the path of Space Marines again! :-) and I shall of course be following your work!

the Scythes look good so far! I'd say wash the yellows in an earthy tone wash, Agrax or Devlan or anything similar then re apply the yellow and do small highlights with yellow/bleached bone? I think if you do a bit more work to the yellow areas you can get away with the black parts staying quite dark.

and faces eh! if you want I can help you out? just let me know dude and I'll do a tute for you on how i do mine :-)

i'd have to say so far missile guy is my fave! Cyclops from X-men springs to mind! you've done a pretty neat job on all of them, what are you planning on doing to them next?

Dude, a tut on faces would be amazing - I have no idea how anyone has the patience to do all these stupid little fething eyes and cheek bones and other stupid stuff.... gimme a helmet any day!

I agree about missile bloke, my fave too, next up for these guys is a general tidy up and to make the colours pop a little more.

Just got my airbrush out for the first time ever, took me ages to figure out how to work it, a minute amount of time to use it, and ages to get it anywhere close to semi clean! I thought airbrushes were supposed to be the way forward!? Damn thing!

Easy as dude! I can do that for you no problem, I need to re do one for my blog so I'll link it there when I'm done!

excited about the Airbrush? I find I only use mine for shading vehicles and larger items and using it to give a good coverage of wash over all the models in a squad! works a treat! as far as details go you can paint faces with the AB too, but I prefer a brush :-)

So it's been a while since I've done anything modelling / painting / gaming related, though I finally got to scratch a 2 year itch on Saturday by getting my Grotesques converted

O.K Kitchy that first Grot is creeping me out! the little useless arms at the front like some kind of disabled T-Rex gives me shivers....... but the fact that you're scratching your itches makes me happy :-)

One question. My grots are nude, they need trousers at least. Armoured or cloth? I'm inclined to go armoured... not crazy though, still fitting the de segmented style.

I'm a beginner green stuffer though :-P

Thoughts???

Thoughts would be using plasticard and other shapes already in plastic rather than Greenstuff, you can then Green it to smooth and gap fill :-)
