Here is my Wolf guard Terminator Leader




I'm kinda at a loss for what to do with his chest? Should I paint his chest black and leave the spikes or arrows red? or paint them black and leave the chest red. I worried that there is soo much black on him as there is. Another option I was thinking was painting it silver?
Any thoughts?

So I bought a new needle and tip for my airbrush ( I dropped the previous tip down the drain ). So I looked around for something to air brush and found a few items that needed to be done for this list.

Plasmaguns:

My list needs plasma guns for my grey hunters. Previous version of my list I had melta guns. So its time to switch it up. I magnetized them so I can swap them back when the next version of 40k changes and plasma becomes lame. I primed them black from below and dragon red from above. I AB a shot of bloody red from above then gave it an pin oil wash of burnt umber. cleaned it up with a Qtip of turpentine. Then a touch up of bloody red and a fine highlight for fiery orange.

I started blacking out some areas until the drop of paint in my pallet ran out ...and I got bored.. and quit.

Photos (taken with my phone too lazy to set up light box):




Top left is the one I did a while ago, this is the base to compare to. Top right is the Chaos version for my Chaos squad and the other two plasmas will be for on for the SW squad and the other for the SM squad.

More to come Just need to edit photos between work



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Predator Side sponsens:

Just cropped this photo. I did these the same way I did the arms above. Side note I really hate taking photos of red. The side on the lascannons are actually dark red to black. I did these before the arms (its where most of the black went)



I also did my hurricane bolters Sponsens on the Landraider but I guess I forgot to take pictures

Nice to see some progress! nice rich red so far on the arms, the way I take pics of red is to use a bit of card in front of my flash so it doesn't wash the colour out, it takes experiment and some patience but once you get it, you'll be set dude! :-)

Thanks Damo, I don't use the flash when I use the light box, but maybe I use too much light.. I find that the light box with a black background gives me better pictures but still cant capture Red properly..could even be my camera it's over 10years old

More pics:

After I got bored, I started highlighting this head. then gave it a wash of badab black

So I had a FML moment again

Years ago my Airbrush fell off the holder and landed on the tip of the needle and bent it after the first time I used it. Many months ago I drop the tip down the drain.

And Now while cleaning the brand NEW needle that cost me $70... I go ahead and drop it!

I just can't win. I was soo happy to finally have a perfect needle and get some good clean pattern and after the FIRST time I use it, I drop it. The whole Time I made sure I was so careful and I choked! Watching it fall was like slow motion NNOOOOOOOooooo......

and of course I bent the hell out of it! I manage to make it semi straight but I guess I'm not destined to have a good one.

Gutted. Maybe you should get a cord attached to your wrist!

Seriously though that sucks, but if it's any consolation the airbrushing you did looks good!

@Theophony, I'm liking the way the helmet turned out too. Not sure what to do for the vents on it ears and the teeth vents.

I'd be tempted to leave the wolf helm as it is, it looks great like that! :-) sorry about your tip too :-( that's a bummer man!

Thanks Viney!

@Nerdfest09, I was thinking Gun metal for the teeth with heavy badab black wash. For the ears I was thinking a bronze?

but worried It might pop too much, but leaving it seem to bare

I ran out of bleached bone and haven't been able to paint any of the horns, skulls, trophy sacks or even my bases. So I went to the local GW and picked up some new paints. I bought Ushtabi Bone to replace bleach bone. While there I also bought Rhinox Hide, Zandri Dust, and Nuln Oil.

I did some test with it and I like it .


Let me know what you think

Hey Styro... I'm still boggled by the fact that you pay $70 for a needle.... I'm paying around $6 I think... no more than $15 for sure. What brand are you running?

Joys of living in Canada. We get charged double sometimes triple US prices

Yea the dollar is par ...oh no we must raise the prices. Man the dollar is dropping .. we must raise the prices. Gas is soo high.. We must raise the prices. Gas is cheap... We must raise the prices

The prices are too high lets increase the minimum wage... Now we can raise the prices again

[/rant]

I actually bought both the needle and the nozzle. The needle alone was like $20 +taxes +shipping

Yep, Especially if your other hobby is a Mustang. Parts are very pricey to ship and if you buy them here you pay double.

I'm looking to buy a set of tires. Nitto Extreme 555. In Canada the tires are almost $300-400 each and have to be purchased at a specialty tire shop. I can buy the same tires at a Walmart in the States for $150 each

Thanks. She's a fun toy, but when she breaks down it can get pricy.

Last November, I threw the clutch release bearing on the track. I haven't driven it since. I'm just this weekend getting it fixed. New bearing and since the tranny is out, I might as well replace the clutch. So I got a Centerforce duel friction clutch.

I can't wait to drive. Most of season is done but I can prolly hit one last track day

I used my new paints to paint the bone. I also painted the bronze/ gold.


Still have a lot to go. I'm really liking them. I need to find a tutorial on painting thunder hammers

I tried your technique Damo for the shoulder pad. I think I need more pointers

C&C is welcome

Really like the way those are looking Styro. The red and black just jump off the screen.

Looking really good! what pointers are you after? it look fine to me :-) and what sort of effect are you wanting to do on your hammers I wouldn't go crazy since the termies already look really eye catching!

Thanks guys. Here are more pictures. I ran out of time last week and didn't get a chance to post them







@nerdfest09, Just the shoulder pads not sure if I did it right. to me it doesn't look right. As for the thunder hammers I was thinking of trying something Like the power sword and maul I did a long time ago

It looks pretty good to me Styro, the metals are kind of personal to your taste but remember to layer the washes and add the scratches between each layer to give them depth :-)

How do I stop it from just turning brown. After 3-4 layers it kinda stops being metal and becomes brown
