The vet has been painted!! He now awaits his base, while the rest what for my FW stuff (that still hasn't arrived )





I decided to go with a mix of desert and urban/ancient base, to reflect what I most like about TSons.



The open areas will be painted with Agrellan earth, like the Custudes.

Are you sure you don't want to put a little more wash on the backpack? The red looks very flat.

True indeed. Maybe you could balance it out with highlights. Do what you believe most fitting.

You could try making his lens pop as well, like a line of light blue through the middle. Well done either way, they're shaping up nicely .

He's looking great! I must admit you've really hit the nail on the head with the ratio of 'space marine' to 'space egyptian' with this dude

If you are looking for a bit more pop on the backpack, have you thought of a little more gold? Perhaps the little claw things holding the vents in gold to match the gold on the legs?

Not that he doesn't look awesome already

So satisfying to see minis based. No mini is complete without a good base. *quiet purring*

Said it in the painting comp but I'll say it here, that Veteran is the perfect balance of 'Space Marine' and 'Space Egyptian'.

I've always thought that Rubrics were a little busy with their ornate head-dresses, but your dude is ornate enough to be distinctly Prosperine, but not over the top

Does anyone know where I could get some of these helmets? (without buying more destroyers)



Also Im working on my Seekers, just waiting for their FW helmets (Achean Pattern ones) and ill finish them. So far Ive tested making sniper rifles for them (counts-as boaters with special ammo, but they look like sniper rifles)

Stay tuned!

They look like the helmets from BaC, so MK4 armour probably.

The MKIV helmets have grills in the mouthpiece, the destroyer helmets have a flat armour piece around the mouth. I searched FW, I don't think you can get destroyer helmets on their own. Call and ask, I've heard they have great customer support.

I noticed they didn't have grills, but it's nothing a little green stuff couldn't sort out.

I managed to get this done this morning.




I extended the barrel about half a centimetre, added a support for it and built a scope out of spare plaisticard. Not sure on the scope, but I am flat out of the ones that come in the SM tactical squad and cant find my scout sprues. So that's all Ive got.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Switched the scope




This guy is defiantly Terran, from before the legion was re-united with magnus, and still hasn't fully embraced the legions new mentality. His custom bolter was most likely built by him, and has been slowly modified over time. He is defiantly going to stand out, the other seekers will have FW helmets and rubric marine bolters. My plan is to have his shoulder pads lack the legion symbol, and only have the XV legion numeral. He will also be covered with kill marks, as will the rest of the squad, but he will defiantly have more.

Very pretty painting sir. Then again I've always been partial to pre heresy tsons

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

Neat I've always thought it's a good idea to make up some models for your main army's mortal enemies. Neat way of telling stories and giving your army a bit of a story to it

I'm seriously questioning whether I should keep coming back here. You've betrayed us all with that damn space wolf. Which reminds me, I have to go sell/destroy my unbuilt Stormclaw boxset.
