How exactly do you go about removing it with blue tac? You said you put it on the end of your brush, I assume the non-brush end of it? Do you just push/roll it over the dried masking liquid and it comes off with the paint?

Yep, that's right the non brush end or if you've got a decent blob just rub it over like an eraser, push it onto the model with a bit of pressure and it'll lift off, you shouldn't ruin the paintjob either it's pretty good stuff to use.

I'm interested to see the skull rhino hatch done up. Been eying one up for awhile.

Land Raider is looking good there mate, the weathering and airbrushing are coming together nicely. There's one of two really large patches of weathering I'd be tempted to add a light wash of brown or black to the centre of but the technique works a treat from the look of your mini so far.

That chapter symbol on the shoulder pad looks pretty spesh too, love to see an update on how that's panning out.

I'm assuming from the magnets that the combi-weapons will be magnetised and interchangeable?

Thanks for your feedback SCC always appreciated from an artist such as yourself, I'll re visit those larger chipped patches and add a wash to dull it down a bit and see how it looks then, i'm hoping to finish it this friday.

Sadly I can't use the chapter symbols :-( they just won't confirm and are very fiddly to get off the paper which is a shame as they are done very well, but maybe i can use one or two on my vehicles flat areas? we'll play it by ear I think :-)

and yep, magnetised combi weapons a go go!

Quick and not very exciting update but at least there's a pic or two
Spent the rainy day we had today inside and painting, I managed to nearly finish my landaraider, I painted 18 lenses inc the marine's helmet lenses, quite tedious work if you don't have good enough lighting! glued the sponsons on and all I need to do now is weather the treads, drill out my barrels when my pin vice arrives, highlight the marine and paint the extra bits like the eagles on the door and front hatch....


this one was when I masked it up and then discovered the best thing in the world the airbrush is good for! laying on washes! it makes it so much easier the coat is even, no brush strokes and you can concentrate wash int the parts you need darker! I love it!
And lastly but by no means least, the Nerd lair where the magic happens! it's only temporary mind you until i can buy another house and build a dungeon so my gf won't want to turn it into a gym or decorate it!


soon i'll be doing more so i'll be back shortly!

Lenses are looking great. You should also attach a heavy bolter to bumble bee and use him as a razorback.

Good eyes Eggroll! what a delightfully fantastic idea, I may just do that, it'd certainly turn heads maybe if I played GK he'd count as a Dreadknight?

Hi again my fellow Dakkaites! I have finally come to the completion end of my landraider and also had a chance to highlight some of my marines! i'm quite happy with my progress and of course lament the age old camera + normal world = lack of details, but never mind, once the lot i've got get finished I'll be taking them to my cousin's place who's a proper photographer where she'll make them look great!

so on with some photo's! first up, landraider:





I really didn't enjoy painting the 'headlights' on the tank, I found them to be really difficult and nearly had a hissy fit and chucked it trying to get them to look right!
I am also waiting on the drill to do my weapons with so that has to wait a bit too!

But I like the marines my original intention of using the airbrush has been replaced with a coat of dragon red primer followed by a devlan mud wash and blood red highlights then a blazing orange/blood red highlight this still keeps them in my quick and easy method and tales a short amount of time to actually paint them!




Looking at the pics again I can now see I need to just touch up around the lenses with black again and neaten them up but then i'll be done! but that's where i'm at at the moment people, next is finishing the tac squad and bolters then it's back onto work with my Assault squad and terminators, any comments are always welcome, hopefully positive but constructive critisism is o.k too!


May the Emperor protect!

Thanks matt! :-) glad you like it! I will do the same thing on my rhino's for the army as well, I just made up a shopping cart that's got about $500.00 worth just waiting for payday! more raider's, termies, and speeders! can't wait to get it all done! the marines now have bolters and i've just got to finish off the heavy weapon guy and the sarge! then more pics will be up.

any more new stuff from you?

Sweet Nerdfest!
I can't wait to see all that stuff, for some unknown reason I love looking at piles and piles of boxes all ready for assembly/painting. It looks so awesome . looking forward to seeing those finished marines too!

I haven't been up to too much recenlty, I did some work on some of my veterans heads for the command squad, check the blog out! I just need to wait for the rest of the bits to arrive before I can do some more serious work. I'm extremely excited - 1-2 weeks until major command squad updates i'm guessing. But trust me, it'll be worth the wait. I'm going to do my best to make them as beautiful as possible . Until then though, i'll probably work on some troops and those sergeants, maybe some terrain - I have a strongpoint that needs doing!

Until then,

LDP

Thanks Gits! anything positive from a stalwart such as you is great to hear! keep in mind some of your work among others is what inspires me to keep on painting! glad you like my lenses, I quite like them myself, I was never any good at them until this tank! I had to research methods and colours for it and ended up doing what you see here, I shall also be getting those two marines for you and your son together soon as well and i'll ship them on their way!
Friday is looking like a good day to finish my tac squad all bar the bases! so hopefully some more pics! I have only done the bolters with boltgun metal (appropriate) and a wash of black but i actually really like how they look! kind of basic and massed produced with an air of functionality to them, what do you guys think? will it be enough to still look good or will I lose cool points for not spending more time on them?

I don't do all that much extra work on my bolters either. They are standard munitions... I like to keep them that way. That being said, I usually do a bit of chainmail highlighting on them (drybrushed) just to make them pop a bit in relation to the figure.

   
Made in au
Chaplain with Hate to Spare






Not a bad idea gits, i've got mithril silver so i'll drybrush a bit over and see how it comes up, i can't remember which one's a brighter silver though? mithril or chainmail? doesn't really matter I suppose in the long run though :-) I shall keep the bolters simple as, like you said, they're standard munitions but i'll most probably do something diferent for the captain/ librarian/ chaplain.

Mithril is the brightest. if you do the chainmail and decide it's still a little dull, you can do a *really dry* mithril brish over the chainmail. Don't overdo it though or you'll end up with glam-guns. Most unflattering for the emperor's finest.

Yep, glam guns wouldn't be the best thing! unless you're playing emperor's children! then i imagine they wouldn't be glam enough!

Thanks Knightly and Chronotrigger! no plans as yet to tackle a freehand design I get the shakes too much :-( but it's something I may research and maybe try on an older vehicle as practice? will be a good challenge though!

I hope as well that this turns out to be an imposing army when done! i've got money burning a hole in my wallet for more models at the moment so the whole list is pretty good! i'm itching for my days off to finish my Tac squad and put up some pics for review!

Now I can't stop thinking about doing a freehand! lol :-) thanks very much! damn challenges!
