Thanks so much guys! Really, the feedback spurs me on

Albator, I’m sorry mate, I totally did mean the GW wash. I think it’s called gryphonne sepia? And yes, I airbrush it on lightly. Kinda like a filter.

I should add that after those steps I like to wash the model with burnt umber oil, then remove the wash from all but the recesses. I’ve found that by washing the whole model then cleaning it, there remains a tiny amount of oil, like a filter, across the whole thing which can give a nice effect. . This can darken the tone though. Best examples would be praetor or the recent Primaris squad.

Not sure if I will do this on the repulsor, or just washnithe recesses with oil.

Back at work, so things have slowed a bit. Still, some progress has been made on repulsor, so I thought I’d do an update. Most metals basecoated, as well as areas painted black. Body paint work chipped.trying for a “used, but not damaged” level of weathering. Hopefully, later oils will add some depth here too.

It’s slowly coming together I think. Next step will be to weather the black areas, build up the metals, and start lenses etc. if anyone has thoughts or examples on weathering black, I’d love to hear them

Need to decide how hard to go with edge highlting....


As always, any feedback or thoughts welcome.

Well, it’s been a while. Progress has been slow, but it has happened.

Have done a fair bit on metals, rockets, and highlights. Trying for a more subtle highlighting than I would in a marine, fingers crossed it works out

Next step,more gloss coat then oils!

BEAUTIFUL work, really incredible.

Makes me like the Repulsor more, I can never unsee the flying Land Raider thing... which is what it is, I suppose.

Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you so much Cosmic.

I know what you mean about the repulsor, it does smell of heresy. But...it’s a great model

Thanks so much guys.

Well, progress has been madE. Finally, the highlights are done. I’ve applied an oil wash and progressed some of the weathering.

Thought I would do something a bit different with the progress pic, and hopefully show why I love oils on IF. No doubt you guys are all across this approach, but you never know, someone might find it interesting

Top image: acrylics only
Middle: oil wash
Bottom: streaks

Hopefully, won’t need too many more update pics before it’s done

Wow, that is great. Thank you for taking the time. The pictures and steps, at first glance, have such a small difference between each, but the overall effect is fantastic.

Hell Yeah San. Fantastic work man. My next thing for the slow grow is the repulsor and yours is my inspiration, though it wont be yellow! I especially love the oil washes, which ive never done. Great great great work always from you dude!

Thanks so much guys, I really appreciate the encouragement!

Actually got to paint a bit this weekend. Finished weathering the repulsor. Now this grav plates and the odds and ends (lenses, missiles etc) and it might actually get finished!

Now...if the power company would just finish their maintenance and turn everything back on!

I know this sounds wierd, and not knowing the kit, im not entirley sure im sure of what im looking at, but i Kinda dig the model w/o the grav plates underneath. That is the one element that has prevented me from buying the thing in the first place, and here i am looking at yours thinking you got some FW variant. Of course hardheaded gw purists would never accept such a thing, but for my aesthetic eye, it looks cool AF without that bulky sh*t underneath it.

I totally know what you mean B. I’m at the stage now there I got to get going on the plates and I’m not super exited about them. Other than that though it’s a great model.

it’s been a while but Hopefully I will have finished pics of repulsor in next few days.

In meantime, started a side project. Looking for something different to paint, and to step out of my astartes comfort zone, I picked up some skaven. Fantastic models and much higher quality for push-fit than I thought.

2 updates in one weekend! More skaven work. Added some deeper shadows to the TMM, which I think have made a difference, and started to try and work out how to paint flesh! I know he’s probably too shiny for skaven, but it’s a chance to try some new techniques

I really like him, and definitely getting some ideas for the Veermyn (space skaven).

Nice shading on that metal - not all ratmen should be dirty and grimy in my opinion

And that tank looks lovely - although I didn't know space marines has hover tanks these days. Ideally need to spend sometime looking at what GW have done these last few years

Thank you Whalemusic!

Well, finally finished my repulsor! I loved painting this model. Really pushed my techniques, though I do think it’ll be a while before I do another tank!

As always I struggled with photos...but I hope you like it.

That repulsor looks really sharp! I wouldn't worry about the photos, you can tell if a miniature doesn't have justice done to it even if they don't come out how you planned. I can only image how good it looks in person

Also, what's your method for that skaven TMM? It looks really sharp.
