The beastmen turned out great. Sadly I cannot unsee the flexing guy on the shields, though. Keep up the love for old minis!

I like those really like those Chaos Warriors from an earlier post and those shields with the flexing guy on them are great!

Keep it up and I'm keen to see how these marines go!

youwashock and Tyranid Horde, thanks for stopping by and sorry for ruining the Shields with the flexing man!

I’ve been away in Germany with work this week, but I did take the Blood Angels with me. Thankfully the paint didn’t leak in my suitcase, but I only managed to tidy up the washed portions. If I get the chance over the weekend I’ll get on with their highlighting... once I’ve fixed the arm that I forgot to wash and the one that fell off his base!

Welcome Wildcat, shedding tears is high praise indeed! Glad you liked them, I’ve got plenty more nostalgic minis where they came from. I might do some High Elf Silver Helms after these Marines.

It’s been a while as RL got in the way in that I’m rubbish at keeping up the physio. As such my backs been telling me to not sit at a desk for too long. I have managed to get a highlight layer on the Blood Angels armour though. I reckon the finish is a bit smoother than the Marines off my first page, what do you guys think?

Thanks amazingturtles, I’m happy with how the armour is coming along... I just need to not ruin it with the next colours! Hoping to make some decent progress this week

youwashock wrote:Looking good so far. Great old models.


Cheers youwashock, loving your old zoats too!

RL has gotten in the way quite a bit, with family visiting and actually having a social life for a change! I did manage to squeeze a bit of painting in and highlighted the armour. One of the Marines also has his black bits started.



I might get the chance to do the rest of them tonight or tomorrow too!

In other news I broke my promise to myself to not buy more minis until I’d painted all that I have (I know, now I’ve right!). I’ve seen too many good starts at Blackstone Fortress and fancied me a piece of that, so have the box coming soon! More stuff I don’t have time to paint! Yay!

Good to see progress on these old-timers. Will the others be getting shoulder pads?
   
Made in gb
Perturbed Blood Angel Tactical Marine





Yeah they’ve all got pads, for some reason I decided to try painting whilst they had their weapons in hand but not their pads or backpacks. I figured it’d be easier to paint them separately I suppose!

The postie left me a Blackstone Fortress shaped present today too! The step up in detail on the minis compared to my old stuff is insane! Can’t wait!

Managed 2 evenings of painting in a row, might even make it 3 tonight unless work spreadsheets get in the way! Last night I base coated all of the black bits basecoated and a friendly Ur-Ghul decided to join them.



amazingturtles, I’m already enjoying building the models. Can’t wait to get some paint laid down, but need to figure out what to do with their bases. I’ve seen a few people doing glowing hexagons which look awesome. Tempted to do a twist and do something like the triangles on the box. Or perhaps try to replicate a compartment or two

I didn’t manage to make it 3 nights in a row, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad. Pretty much got the Blood Angels done, just transfers and base to highlight and they’re done. I’m really pleased how they're turning out. at first I thought the fire dragon bright was too stark a highlight for the armour, but now I’ve got all of the other colours on it sits quite nicely. The green gems and eyes seem to look better than previous attempts too.



I reckon I’ll finish them off this coming week before moving on to the Space Wolves I started a while back. I’ve also got 4 Ur-Ghul built ready for basing and priming. I’d like to use the repeating triangle theme, I just need to figure out that materials to use. Card is looking the most likely given I don’t have any plasticard. Not sure it’ll give clean enough edges though.

Thanks for stopping by, C&C welcome

So I managed to get some painting done and to finish these Marines. I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out, a step improvement on the first batch from a few months ago, much smoother with neater (though not yet neat!) highlights. I particularly like the one with his bolster raised. He had some serious surgery on his arm which started life as a left arm but a hand and shoulder swap soon changed that!



The pics are a bit brighter than normal as I’ve applied a vivid filter which seems to make the colours less washed out, perhaps a bit closer to real life? Who’s for a bit of fratricide?



The knife guy has a bit of a ‘come at me bro’ stance and arm swap chaps button had been triggered one too many times! Here’s a few more




And a couple with the rest of the squad;




Now I need to find their sergeant, heavy weapons guy and another Bolter marine to finish the squad.

Next I’ll do the Space Wolves as they’re already started. Then I’ll reward myself with a bit of Ur-Ghul action. I’m thinking I’ll go dark with mine, probably a dark grey with a bit of purple/pink/turquoise/ice blue. I reckon the Chaos dudes will follow my WHFB chaos theme through when I eventually get to them!

Right on! Those Marines look great. The plans for the Ur-Ghul sound exciting. Looking forward to seeing you tackle BSF.

I like the idea of turqiouse on the urghuls! I had a lot of fun painting those guys in particular, they're small and monopose but a neat design.

Blood angels are looking great!

Thanks Maharg, the base was chosen from a colour wheel, so thanks for noticing!

Thanks turtles, I’ve seen a few do different colours, so may mix it up with them. They are surprisingly small and skinny, their legs make skellybobs look a bit chunky!

Thanks mcmattila, the gun stripes are meant to be a kind of kill count marking. They’re Space Marines so they’re probably in units of ‘000s! The knife chap is winning so far in that front!

Managed to squeeze in 30 mins of painting tonight and tidied up the Wolves following their wash.



My previous Space Wolves have gone straight to the old Space Wolves Grey, but these will be a bit darker with Russ Grey going in between. The SW Grey will then just be an edge highlight. These guys have a bit more detail than the Blood Angels, so that’ll be nice BFS prep!

Thanks for stopping by for a look

Great stuff gobert,

Now you can have them face my Rogue Trader and 2nd Edition Eldar and my friend can bring some of the cardboard terrain.

They’re pretty sweet, sadly I’m missing the end of one of the power axes. The bolters are gonna be a nice bright yellow to keep the retro going!

Cheers CB, I need to find your old skool eldar blog by the sounds of it! I did have some cardboard terrain until last year when my mum cleared out my old bedroom last year. I have some 2nd edition box set orks with goblin green bases somewhere too!

So the wolves had a little progress tonight. Sadly Russ Grey and the old Space Wolve Grey were far too harsh a contrast for my liking, and Russ agrey is pretty much identical to the old Shadow Grey (ok, maybe ever so slightly lighter). As a result I decided to stick with Space Wolves Grey as the main armour colour for my Wolves. One is done and two have had their Russ Grey done, for what it’s worth!



I honestly can’t tell much of a difference between the two on the right and the previous pic I posted!

Whilst I was at them I messed about with triangles for the BSF bases. I think I’ll have to print off some bits to cut out though as my freestyle triangles were way off what I had in mind

I managed a bit of painting and hobby setup progress last night. Sat down and got all 3 Space Wolves to the same point. On one of them I tried a bit of dry brushing, but the Space Wolves Grey is so thin that even when I thought it was ready it left streaks. So I went back to some good old fashioned layering. Metal work next I think, which should give me a chance to try out my new Dropper Bottles. I only realised after I’d ordered them That they had a thin neck. Hopefully they’re a good enough seal for the paint to not go off in the tube! Here’s a pic for proof of progress



Cheers!

A bit more painting tonight, I decided to go for the yellow on the Space Wolves, getting a base coat or 3 of Averland Sunset down. I hate painting yellow but the coverage that Averland gives is pretty amazing. Joining the Wolves was a friendly griffon from my old painted pile



The griffon will be the first of my old Elves to get rebased in the new style matching my Chaos and High Elf armies. I found a rock in the garden to act as a rocky outcrop that will be over lava. In repositioning his feet I damaged the paint on his legs, so that’ll need re-working.

Thanks for looking!

He sure is, I’ve got Eltharion sat on the shelf, trying to decide whether to touch him up or just re-mount him. Sadly the new superglue I’ve bought doesn’t seem to be very strong, or perhaps it doesn’t like the “stone.” Stormwing keeps coming off it leaving no trace of the glue on the stone. I’ll give it one more try before finding some good old loctite.
