For painting a horde that's some nice stubble on those grunts. Great looking army. I like the newer additions as well. The painting on the psykers is very nice, and the color scheme lends them a more regal look, while their hunched and pained expressions betray the facts of the matter.

wow that unk guy is quite disturbing... as yu stated it is of the current range it is still unkown to me... very lopsided face... you have to have a stomache made up from iron to be standing near one of these grunts when you are doing service in the IA...wow like the warpaint on his face and the shirt has real nice texture and blended colroformations from green to white! the ogryns are still a stinging pain in my back of my brain... i am always on the lookout for a cheap bargain...but it seems the auctions have a set pricing for them... like LAndraiders and valks you seldom get them for cheap...

thanks vik. actually looking back over this blog im becoming highly unsatisfied with the digital camera photos versus my iphone. the iphone pics blur less and pick out more detail. the only downside is that the pics are alot bigger, but, hey, this is my blog so probably, from now on, ill be adding pics taken with the iphone. The comparison can be seen in 1st and 2nd uploading of the psykers...also, perhaps, soon, they will have a plastic box of ogryns? i dont know im just dreaming probably, and PS, if you decide to field them, be careful, they are super expensive and a smart opponent will take advantage of their terrible ld. Nothing hurts more then 4-5 full strength ogs breaking and being rundown in a cc loss....

that i heard ... well also it is to be expected... i think no one wants a deathstar unit for real... so leadership fails are needed to keep game balance! a plastic set would be a real charm...that would be something i even would aim to get and not from ebay for this time^^ well when you would upload the pics to the gallery they always state that bigger is better...so i would totally go for the i phone... never thought that a phone cam would be better than a real cam...so much for that missunderstanding^^

Lovely abhumans! I am going to make a prediction, Citadel will re-release the ogryns as the new Citadel Finecast lightweight resin.

That close up of the grunt in the midst of the ogryn squad looks hilarious, like he's about to pass out from the stench.

Hmmmm...penal legion, sounds fun. In my mind I've made about 6 different penal legions lol. But I don't like the randomness of the roll up front...I could do a "natives" proxy and have some xeno scum heling out my boys...we shall see.

I had a friend who was trying out PL, and he rolled all 5/6's for his deployment on them, so they were all knife fighters, AND he had straken with them so they all got furious charge. Pretty nasty...anyways unless you wanna see a termi i have painted, im running a little lower on pics to update, but for the sake of this logs interest, ill still post stuff that i think is pretty cool heres one of my flamers from the PCC#1, the metal ones from back in the dayyyyyyyy....

Thanks Git Ive found the metal sculpts and the newer CC and HWT Boxes to be of much better quality and a bit easier to paint, than the standard platoon box. Especially the faces...although, ya'll are so good that i doubt ill get any love from you on that note

Oh no, you're very good at it. I'm still at the flesh + sepia wash level for the most part. My bikers are the exception, not the rule.

speaking of skin tones, this next update is the first ogryn that ive painted. I wanted him to fit the color scheme of my army. At the time, i intended for the whole squad to be like this, but then after painting him, (and it took forever because i painted each bullet on his belt individually) I decided to go a different route. Also the green pants, while the same color as the blob squads, i didnt dry brush, i wet blended and feathered to get a bright fluid look. Im still in NYC so when i get home ill take better photos of this stuff to show what i mean, but anyways, after a hiatus of painting ogryns, i was reinspired to paint my squad of them and i painted the remaining 4 like the guy above. For a while, this ogryn didnt get used, he stayed in my case, but i fluffed him to be a Bone-Ead, hence, the humie skin tone, to represent as if, he was closer to a man then the rest of the group. Here is Ogryn #2, the bonehead (chronologically, ogryn #1)



hope you guys like

What paint combinations do you use to get the bright brass shell effect?

Thanks guys
@dst it's been quite a while since I painted this model but, if I remember clearly, it was either burnished gold + snake bite or shining gold + bestial as a base (all of my golds are always started out with a mixed brown base). I *think* I used a wash of Devlan mud,, definitely used straight burnished gold after that and then added a tiny lil dot of burnished+mithril at the tips...sorry it's a bit unclear. I'd experiment with different hues by adding different browns to your mix and see what happens


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Oh and...an even tinier dot of pure mithril on the tips for a final highlight

Something a little off topic today guys I feel generally downright bad that i have shown anything WIP, but i promise to get to that. I havent been able to START anything for about a week, and i still have about 2/3rds of my catachan army left to update. Not including the next works im doing for it. Itll be a commissar. ive included a pic of it earlier, but ill try to do a nice step by step on it or something like that as soon as i return home on sunday. For the simple fact of adding another splash of color on this blog. Im updated a few pics of a terminator that i recently finished. I was inspired by the work of Natalya Meylniks work on her dark angels, where the armor has almost a gritty texture to it. I tried to recreate it with a very very faint drybrush after each highlighting step. its somewhat hard to translate on camera, and is not EXACTLY what i was trying to achieve, yet, i dont dislike it either. The chapter is my own creation, Knights Alchemist. Each Marine etc, would have some metallic type helmet...silver, bronze, etc etc. I posted this pic in that painting competition thread that apparently totally fizzled out, so apologies if youve seen this Anyways, have a great day everybody!

Excellent work, edge highlighting really brings it out & makes things pop. Good work on the freehand and base too!

I really like your paintjob! Especially the violet cloaks. I have only one question though - why don't you paint lasguns and other human weapons as detailed as the ogryn's? They have lots of parts why leave them almost completely green?

Haha:p well...I COULD go crazy and paint the grunt troops the way I paint my elite and character models, but seeing as I've painted basically about a hundred of them, id go essentially insane and this blog would not exist:p the nature of the CaTachan models don't really lend themselves to speed painting because their 2nd predominant color is flesh. So my strategy to get these done efficiently was to do a light drybrush of the green and spend good time doing the flesh areas. I think it's the middle ground between style and speed, and I could spend more time making the bases fun and colorful and the skin realistic! I hope that answers your question sir, and thanks for your compliment!
