The lightning on the fist is outstanding. All the other symbols and chevrons are knocking my socks off. Your freehand is highly enviable.

Thanks mate too kind. Every attempt at freehand takes 4 or 5 restarts - but I feel I’m slowly getting closer to putting on the model the ‘ideas’ I see in my head

Ok - bunch of pics coming cos the squad is now done!

Awesome freehand work. All those little details rock.

Great freehand! The bit on the dread looks awesome, has a bit of an 80s Rock vibe to it. I missed the sparky power fist, I reckon it looks cool

Oh hey! I missed this update. Glad to see that boxy boy is getting some stripey love. Once again, really good free-hand work, specifically on the powerfist - I see at least two tones painted neatly over very thin lines. Good brush control on display there.


Cheers mate Its white paint applied as fine lines of lightning with tesseract glow tech painted slightly wider over the top. I added a few more touches here an there to give the more of the fist a green tone without specifically having a highlight to stand out.


Oh that's clever; I'll have to give that a go when I'm back at my painting desk. I like that strategy because you don't have to perfectly get over the first layer.

Killer army shot! Looks great all together. Are those barricades scratch-built?

Thanks guys! The freehand can be super frustrating, But i do like the final result

cheers mate - the boxy dreads are very retro - simpler designs yet somehow wildly overdone at the same time The powerfist has grown in me - I think the only thing I’d do differently is work on the fineness of the lightning strokes.

Thanks mate - yes, the barricades are scratch built - they were the first thing I did at the start of lockdown here in South Australia. I posted a bunch of ‘WiP ’ pics as well as finished product pics at the very beginning of this thread: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/789728.page#10854152

New project - My 4 final death guard models. I forgot to take Early pics Of my current WiP so these ones are almost finished. Coming together quickly now I’ve Figured out my process for them. Almost at the finishing touches already lol
Given we’re getting a new Death Guard codex, I may have to finish off some green stuff projects I’ve been playing with...









Cheers
KT

Nice! I love to see these old Death Guard models. I don't hate the new ones or anything, but they are definitely turned up to 11; these guys looked definitely diseased but a little more grounded.

I think youre right – the new ones are somehow less… subtle? They divert further from the core space marine gone bad – the corruption is far more overt. Still, I would like to buy some of those new models…
Anyway – the plague marines are done, and here they are!

Did some more free-hand work, and here is the obligatory ‘shoulder pad focus compilation shot’:








I’m moderately happy with these – the skulls ended up pretty well, but my flies look a bit more like mosquitos than I had hoped lol
I am very happy with the weapons this time round though – the nurgle power sword and green glow plasma gun worked really well imho.

Quick follow up with some of the 1ksons freehand work that will almost certainly have me fondly remembering the good old days of hazard stripes.

Those classic nurgle chaps look great, and I agree that the power sword came out well. Good luck staying sane with your Thousand Sons freehand, at least you’re getting a bit of variety with them!

The Nurgle guys are fabulous. Love the plasma gunners. 1K Sons are going to be mind-blowing.
