Another quick update for the interested - putting down some colour on the Corrupted Tempest Scions













These are just quick base-coats - feels good to start putting some paint down

The visual link between the models and the banner is cash money. This is shaping up quite nicely.

Another quick update post - WIP WIP WIP - just of my Corrupted Tempestor with plasma pistol and Power fist - trying the weird Iron recipie again on this armour. Not sure ive if stepped it out before:
- base coat of ledbelcher/cygor brown contrast mix (50/50)
- cover with agrax (so it looks dark and dull)
- highlight of ledbelcher/tallasar blue contrast mix (50/50)

This photo is a little dark to see this tbh


this photo is not great but you can see the 2 different layers on the back shoulder


not on these models yet but there will be two more highlights with :
- silver/tallasar blue mix
- silver

You can kinda see it better on the CSM models I did last month




The aim is to quickly fake that sky/earth reflections you get on metal? Maybe?

Does it work? I think it does (at least I dont think it looks bad!), but interested in opinions

I like the look. Worn, but the eye likes to see that little splash of color. In the pictures the silver/blue mix looks very similar to Grey Knights Steel. Have you tried just using that? Could save you the mixing step.

Gotta say I havent really looked for a blue metal before - if I start doing this a lot (or on a vehicle) i will certainly do that - looks almost identical!

Time for another quick update - this time with my regimental standard progress.









Still needs some stripes, and some neatening up, but otherwise its not too bad. I think I shouldve made the thumbs a bit bigger... or the hands smaller. The scale is kinda like an adult holding a child-skull. Still, pretty happy overall

Let me know what you think!
Cheers

Here are three (of the 5) done - or almost done!

Very sharp banner work! Love it. You just don’t see much by way of strong banner game in 40k these days. Way to keep the scene alive.

Looking good kt. The reds are really nice, great transitions on the highlights. As the others have said the banner is epic, the lettering is very cool

thanks mate. The blind socket is actually a result of a scalpel accident. I slipped when I was cutting something and managed to gouge a cut in the model's face which almost but not entirely saved my thumb. After washing the blood off I could see I needed to either re-cast the head or work with what I had.

It was very much a bob ross "happy little accident", only a bit gorier than usual

thanks mate - big assed banners are my cheaty way of practicing my freehand on something larger than a space marine shoulder-pad

And thanks as always Gobert after the last batch of converted iron warriors I did for Kill Team I really liked how the red looked in the overall scheme. I feel I should say was also happy wth the 8 cultists and their orange pants but the orange was a choice I made to make them look like freed inmates from a prison world. And tbh the orange just didnt pop as well as the red.

The lettering was me searching "heavy metal albulm fonts' and looking for one that was cool, simple, but also legible (a surprisingly small category).

In any case - they are all done (and have been for almost two weeks now! eep!): here's the final pics

Banner-man/hotshot volley gun guy








it was great to get them done
Cant play with them yet as I need to either make another 5 scions, or add in 7 normal guardsmen. I may end up doing both tbh

Anyway, onto the next project and its both simple and quick - infantry! the challenge is any chaos model with the keyword infantry (and there are loads). Instead of 'slaying the grey' Ive decided to lift some heavy weights
0==0
by finally doing the metal havocs that have been sitting around.

8 lads:

and this guy is my first one off the rank










More of this in a later post! Have a great weekend folks
Cheers all!

I am becoming a big fan of that blue tint in the metals. Great work on the kill team! And way to roll with the punches on the x-acto attack.

All in on your classic havocs, they look fierce and ready to tangle. As always great job on the hazard striping, and I like the red details.

Um.. i'll try to catch up by just posting finished pics?

Defiler




a little freehand





poxwalkers






a few ghosty bois



apart from this I have been working on another rescue, this time rescuing a land-raider that I previously rescued 10 years ago. A re-rescue.

This is where it was earlier this month



is is kinda the midway point



and when Im done I'll post the final ones. This is with some paint on it




Sigh, I will try to post pics of this when Im finished. I'm better at posting regularly on instagram, where I post under: https://www.instagram.com/darkkt40k/
