Hey guys,

Finished up a couple of stormtalons, finally got some good pics of them tonight.

They are done in the red/yellow of the Imperial Fists 3rd Company. The aim was to tie them into the company without overwhelming the mini with red.

Questions/comments/feedback would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

I'm loving them! How did you do the cockpit windows? I presume by using an airbush?


1. Go to FLGS on a 40K game night.
2. Announce to no one in particular "I have over 10,000 points of Space Marines".
3. Sit back and watch as some 30-ish Neckbeard who still lives with his parents not only disputes your claim, but goes on to describe his 30,000 points of Blood Angels and how he has been playing since Rogue Trader days... And yet you will have never seen him either play 40K or that army.
4. From here, you have several options. Continue the conversation, or just end it. Either way, I guarantee you will waste 1+ hour of your life talking to this guy. Have fun!

Not a fan of painted canopies myself, but the painting itself is good, I like the wear and tear. (But you put the wings on one of them on the wrong sides, the wings are pointing up instead of down)

I think your canopies are a little extreme.

Thanks guys!

Yes its an Airbrush, Painted each window black then did a white airbrush basecoat leaving some of the black around the edges. Then I did a transition from black to blue using the minitair ghost tints (oil discharge, blue, then plasma fluid), making sure I left a white spot in the direction of the light source (for me this above and slightly to the right of the vehicle).

I got a little lazy with the one on the right, my airbrush jammed a few times and gave the spray pattern a patchy look in places. I should have stopped and cleaned it but was in a rush. I think I'll try and get around to redoing it once I finish up some more units.

I have quite a lot of this army painted at the moment, I might try and show all of it in the thread when I get some time.

Haha, yeah I didn't realise that I had put the wings on one of them the wrong way around until I was half way through doing the airbrush shading . Rather than rip them off I just left it, the good thing about it is they can be side by side in pictures now without the wings pushing them apart.

I was tossing up between what I've done and painting the interiors and leaving the canopies as clear glass but I settled on doing the blue to add a contrasting colour, I don't have much to contrast all the yellow and red in the army at this stage and I'm going to try use the blue on plasma weapons and glass tints to add it in. Hopefully when I get whole army shots up I can change your mind!

I seem to get this sort of comment a lot on things I paint, something on the mini is a little extreme or "garish" and people either love it or hate it haha. I think it’s just become part of my paint style now . Maybe one day I’ll get to a happy medium between the two . Appreciate the feedback!

Nice paint job, i got trouble with yellow, so Since you painted the canopies i assume you preserved the bits from the inside right?

Yeah I kept the guys from the inside. Not sure what I'll use them for yet but might come in handy one day.

I thought I may as well put all my stuff into this thread instead of making a separate one each week.

So here are the finished components of the 3rd company.

Going to keep adding units till I have an big selection of everything.

Any feedback is welcome!

Thanks.








Not the best assembly on this Rhino but I got him second hand.

You have an amazing Imperial Fists army there. Very clean and well detailed, those faces really stand out too.

Wow, its obvious you put a lot of time and effort into these guys. The scouts look a little stubby but i think its just the model.

Am I correct in seeing the spray grey / black from the bottom and yellow from the top, zenithal highlighting technique?

It looks good - did you use airbrush or rattle can?

Tier 1 is the new Tactical.

thanks guys, I'm getting through the army at about 1 unit / character / vehicle per week.

Yep it is zenithal. Black underneath, grey from 45 degree, then an ochre yellow over that, then i do some white from directly above and a pure yellow from above ontop of the white. I use an airbrush but it could be done with a can too id say.

Got this guy finished an assembled on the weekend.

Ironclad with Dual Hunter Killers Missiles, Dual Heavy Flamers, a Dread Close Combat Weapon and a Chainfist.

Not happy with the banner, might add some more flair to it later on. It will do for now though.

I really like what you did with the canopies. It looks good, and it more unique than many painted canopies. I also like the dreadnought directly above. Very solid work, and with all that yellow.

Thanks guys! I'm really enjoying painting this army. Usually around this stage I would be burning out from painting the one army but I'm still keen to get more done. I think the new codex coming out soon is helping too .

Here is my next update, my captain of the 3rd Company.
I just used the Assault on Black Reach guy, I might replace him with the new one when it comes out.
Wasn't totally happy with the banner but it will have to do for now.

Feedback welcome! Thanks.

I have a Fists army myself and if I could get them anywhere near this level of paintjob awesomeness I would be very happy. I love the weathered look on some of them, keep it up.
