Those turned out really nice! You really should drill out your gun barrels though, or at least put a black dot on the end if you're like me and can't center the holes consistently.

@LDP - the combination of armor + cloth and (lets be honest) silly heads I can confirm these were a means to an end.

@Graven - Thanks boss!

@Private Benjamin - Thank you

@Zerg - Good point well raised, I'll be fixing that up!

Update: So been slowly working on a chaplain, pretty much done just need to finish its base
Base colours


Washes


Greys and bone started


Reds and metals done

A Chaplain is the perfect model for you, Knightley. There was never a more appropriate model to put squiggles on.

@Cain - Thanks, I do feel like I could blend it better, but then I would have to go back to every other model with a skull and redo it all.....

@Zerg - Hahah very true, chaplains do need more than the regular marine

@Gits - Cheers!

Update: Chaplain done and some regular marines underway!

Is his name Monor or Nonor?

Either way, that is actually a pretty good chaplain name. Good job!

@IceAngel it says Honor, if I'm reading right. Still a decent chaplain name but one that also fits the stereotype of iconic marine scriptures.

He looks really good Knightley! Somehow your paintwork has brought out some posture from that old metal which I haven't really seen before. He's truly been revived and given new life!

@Graven - Chaplains aren't known for being bunny huggers right. although its probably an untapped market.

@Gits - Thank you!

@Ice - Technically it was supposed to be Honor, but you know what... his name is Monor now!

@LDP - Cheers buddy

@Cam - I have to wonder if the sculpting team at GW just happened to have nightmares about that witch before the got the job to design the chaplain? certainly seems so

@IGtR= - You're far to kind sir!

Update: So I've been busy...

Edge highlighting being applied




Reds and Metals done


And all Marines done

Sponsons and gubbins

Really digging your paint scheme, and the paint job is nice and clean. Also cool to see those Scouts with Scion heads work so well, I'm going to do the same for my Scouts when I eventually get to them..

@mcmattila - Thanks for the kind words, I also borrowed the idea from someone else, perhaps you'll inspire someone else to do the same thing?

@Graven - Cheers bud

@Zerg - I know right, I figured I might get some flak for raiding the BA's amoury, perhaps when it hits the field I will

@Cam - Thanks man!

Update: I'm not dead, been slowly working away on the next model, plenty of bits to do you see

Body shots as it started


Hammer and Vambrace gets some love

Almost finished the hammer

And the vambrace


Shield and sword started to get some work

Shield basically done


Blurry head shot of the Draigo version of the model

Head finished up


On to the bare head Robute version of the model


Head is done

@Graven - If that melted your head, well hold on to your seat...

@Emperors will - As the lord and painting savior Duncan Rhodes has decreed thin coats, thats basically it

Update: Busy month has been busy, on to the pics!

Where last we left off I had basically finished the right leg, well seems only natural to move to the left leg.








And the sword






His Base




His Chest





And with that hes now done, assembled and flocked (although I do need to varnish him)

The GrandMaster version
From here

To here



The Draigo version



And the Gulliman version



I've also been working on the Cerastus knight titan for a couple of months so heres a picture dump as well.

Silver and black wash


Carapace and base underway


Close up on the shoulder pads


Working on the base


Base is almost done



The head and codpeice is basically done (needs squiggles)
