Couldn't use your technique, don't have the paints for it, I had to settle for a simple devlan mud was over boltgun metal and some thinned black close to the muzzle. But the link was appreciated, thank you.

As for being nearly there, not really, I still need at least 10 more guardsmens, a PCS and a CCS. And then I'll do my first vehicle which will be a Hades Breaching Drill of gloom and doom

Really enjoying your progress so far! I really would recommend highlighting those uniforms! All those fantastic depths of grey...so many possibilities. I'd keep it short and simple though, say a basecoat of black, then layering greys on. Great work bob!

I have been layering all my models except those shown in the thread (if by layering, you mean putting a lot of very thin layers of paint, that is) then I drybrush, then I put a wash (sometimes 2, the engineers are far more dirty than the Grenadiers).

Thanks for the good words

Tomorrow (saturday) is painting saturday, I should be done with the HWT and post pictures of the Engies and the HWT, they were done using layering, there should be a significant difference.

I will probably strip down the current Grenadiers at one point and redo them with proper layers as well.

And words of praise are always appreciated

Bump and and update, Engineers and Grenadiers Heavy Weapon Teams and then some

The Engineers, done everything with the same colors as I've done the Grenadiers, but applied more wash, less dilutated wash and 2 washes (Badab black and Devlan Mud)



Officer, notice the shoulder rank insignia, which I actually done properly



Engineer 1



Engineer 2, with a demo charge



Engineer 3



Engineer 4



HWT, well its more Grenadiers, nothing else new here

Heavy Stubber




Heavy Flamer




Normal squad, bought it on Kijiji along with an unpainted HWT with an autocannon (All are WIP, haven't primed the autocannon yet)


That's it for the update, quality of the picture leaves something to be desired, sorry, bases aren't done for the HWT, and I have a bunch of bits to prime/glue/paint, engineers need canteens and knifes/swords and the HWT need a few things here and there.

Now I have a new bunch of guardsmen and a PCS, the sculpt were horrible, so I am getting a new Officier (although, according to me this guy was fine, the one who made the order said he'll call FW for a new officier, which is alright, he'll become a Commissar General!)

I am picking up my DKOK army within the next couple months, I have my first 60 + models already and ive assembled a few. once i have it all ill be sure to show it off haha! the death riders are definitely my favorite at the moment!
Great job on the models so far and ill probably be asking for painting tips in the near future!

All the Emperor requires of us guardsmen is that we hold the line,and die fighting. Its what we do best. We die standing.

Krieg! What a hole...

Here it is, as promised.


First, the Centaur, that I might or might not have mentionned here, using it as a Hades Breaching Drill, bought for 15$ well painted, but not by me, missing a few pieces.









A Quad gun (and Aegis Defence line, but not pictured, its not painted, and everyone knows how it looks)




A basilisk that I bought for 25$, it'll become an Earthshaker carriage and a hellhound and varients with a bit of work, both need stripping and repainting, color's for other people.

The Carriage, missing crew


The Hellhound, missing lots of things.


I plan on covering the black plastic piece, and put tubes coming out of it directly on two heavy flamers glued to the pintle.


The meat of my army

First squad, the one you've seen in a WIP earlier.



A few details

I want YOU!


Probably my guy carrying the most gear


Those guy were bought used, and so were missing all their gear and tools, lucky for me, there was enough spares in my PCS and Advancing squad to kit those guys up, don't have any primer in a pot.


Took me long enough to find a plasma gun, but its there to stay, the squad had no special weapons when I bought it.


Other squad, WIP

The squad above also have those backpacks


Details:

Gave this guy a melta bomb, for additional kaboom when his grenade blows up. Yes, he just primed a grenade, its not too clear on the picture.


The flamer, I had a spare lasgun, so hey, why not.



Other stuff:

I realised I forgot to upload a picture of my melta-gunners.
They're heroes.


More pictures of Grenadiers heavy weapon team





Not ready, at all:

PCS


Autocannon HWT, came with the finished squad, I have nowhere to use it right now, I will need my CCS to do that.


Other things, no picture: I have a Commissar-General (in fact its a PCS Officer with lots of greenstuff) that is being greenstuffed by someone with the appropriate items, will show pictures when I get it.

In a non Grey related story, I bought Stormtroopers for cheap, because they look very awesome, I've also bought a ton of stuff since my last posts, and I kinda forgot about the thread for a while, I'll post more Kriegsmen pictures in the future, as well as my WIP Valkyrie and other toys.

Spoiler:






Faces aren't painted because I don't have the paints for them, Kriegsmen and faces don't go together well after all, I got doubles because the seller had mixed Stormtroopers, so he sold me what he had, which I am fine with, the guy holding down his gun and not wearing a mask is the Sargeant, I am figuring a way out to make him stand more.

Oh and the camo pattern on the cloth was made following Aaron Oakleaf tut: http://s3.zetaboards.com/The_Ammobunker/topic/7054706/1/ except for the fact that I don't have Bleached Bone paint.

I am at 1700 pts with the Valkyrie, which pretty much everyone lets me use, so without I am over 1500, I think, I would have to count everything again, and I got some stuff on its way.

I have converted a Chimera and strapped too much stowage on it, according to a friend of mine at least, also added an autocannon, because it really is a storm Chimera!

The smoke launcher, heavy stubber as well as the antennas broke off, the turret is completely covered in stuff, usually

I am not done, of course



Mole pattern hunter-killer missile







I figured that since it carries Grenadiers and that they already have heavy backpack and armor, the extra stuff will have to be external. Here is the tutorial I followed http://theback40k.blogspot.ca/2010/04/converting-set-back-chimeras-part-i.html

Couldn't let the Centaur go unloved, either, its missing a vox caster, the big pouches are SM stuff.





if you can spot the extra heavy stubber ammo box I added in between the driver and the gunner, that's good, its there, I swear.

I know the feeling. Don't have much in the way of space, either. I try to make the most of what little space I do have. Just glad the damned cat hasn't developed the habit of jumping on every table in the house.


And any progress, even slow progress, is better than not doing anything at all.

Yeah, it is was the only autocannon available at the time. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of my hellhound, it's a WIP, but I quite like it. Oh! and pictures of my custom Scion commander and a nice DKoK a guy painted for me in honor of #5, the Kriegsman I was rping in Only War.

Krieg! What a hole...

Big post, almost Dkok sorry, its mostly Stormtroopers and conversions. And knights, too.

First off, the hellhound and variant, it will need a new coat of paint, but most of the modelling work is done, might add a few pipes on the back tank to add details.









Then the custom Tempestor Prime, he's missing a grip for his grenade launcher, but he's good for a show. People in Crusade of Fury RP threads will have seen him already, except for the last picture, because I realised I missed a few details. His is name is Riley Enoch (oh and props to fellow user Tazyel for helping me big time in the making of that guy)









Next one is a squad of Kasrkins, not a lot of pictures, because I need to strip them (bought e'm for 40$ when they went OOP and the kid who sold them to me first wanted to just give them away, he's also the one that painted them) and because their poses are nothing new, being all metal, customization is a bit harder.





Next one are the Stormtroopers I bought a long long while ago, painted them in the autumn flecktarn style. Again not too many pictures because metal semi monopose stuff.







The Kriegsman a friend made, he's also the one who sent me the link about the flecktarn tutorial, unfortunately, I lost the link.







The reason why I've lost motivation to make progress on my Kriegsmen, I see all those broken barrels and it just discourages me, this model is one of the first standard guardsmen I got, so he's almost 100% done, I only need to remember to do his shoulder guards.



The Scions proper, they'll get dumped in paint stripper, because I've been going at it with way too thick paint. First attempts at magnetizing, too.

First off the Tempestor, I've lost his knife arm (not too bad, still got the chainsword to with as a generic CCW), and his hotshot pistol arm (ma-fething-jor problem, I am pretty pissed about this, because I use this guy as a refence as to what every Tempestor/Primes are equipped with, and with the pistol gone, it'll complicate things)





Normal Scion





Normal Scion





Plasma Scion notice his beret, genericish pose and lack of Scion bits, this Scion came for free with the Kasrkins I bought, so it wasn't assembled by me, bought a bunch of bits from the store I used to go and kitted him there





Plasma Scion oh... this one... I was lacking a body and a pair of legs, so I bought some IG onesfrom a friend, but they don't fit, the magnetizing is especially awful, but I think its because of the smaller body, it would fit well on a Scion body. I gave him the medkit because of Gets Hot! problems, little gamer humour. I've put magnets there in case I need an extra melta gun, but more often than not, I use 2 plasmas in the same squad.







Normal Scion





Normal Scion, his left arm is probably the one that would fit the melta gun right, so when I'll get around to redo those guys, I'll freeze that guy and swap the arms with the one I've put some metal on.





Knights! The guy on the left is a Bretonnian lord one of my ex bought for me, it was looking great when I was done with him, but careless transport chipped the paint and broke off the arrows that I glued on his shield. The guy on the right is about 2$ worth of parts I bought at the store I used to go, Bretonnian and Empire parts were used.

That Tempestor Prime looks kick ass. Like the kind of guy you would follow in storming the gates of hell itself. Can't wait to see him painted.



I am wondering, are the resin gun barrels of Forge World minis flimsier than the plastic ones from GW? I've never worked with a whole lot of resin, and the ones I have are vehicles.

The Krieg lasguns are TINY. I think its part of why they break so much, the hellguns and shotguns of the Grenadiers/Engineers are much thicker, and so I never had any of those break off.
