Good to see your sisters taking to the battlefield, looks like some fun games. You might not have it all your way soon with the new necron codex on the way...

Thanks youwashock! It was quite fun in-game, because my friend's Necrons of course have now pistol weapons and he was quite surprised, when I shot him in his turn: "Are you allowed to do that, why are you allowed to do that" approximate to his words in the situation

Thanks gobert! That's a good tip with the wash around the edge, but I couldn't be bothered 90% of the time I won't see it, so it's all good.

Thanks DJJazzyJeff! It was kind of a test, if I can paint some slightly larger surfaces with Contrast over a metallic.

Thanks amazingturtles! And not so small those cars, wanted to look what scale I need to get some more cheap toy cars, but apparently I have to shop the 1:43 section.

As with the other commenters- I like the Rhino and have no problem with the three headed snake- very symbolic of the three natures of Womankind: Caring, Nurturing and Don't Piss Me Off!


Thanks Meer_Cat! Only a dead robot is a good robot!

Thanks Maharg! Yeah, with the new codex and him probably taking more troops in the next battle it will be harder, I'm sure of it.

Thanks Captain Brown! I always admire the amount of tanks you have painted to a fine standard!

First to all the concerned citizens: Of course the Hydra just shows the allegiance of my sisters to my Space Marines, which are despite all the three-headed reptiles and fondness for the letter A, a very loyal chapter named The Emperor's Fangs. So I can assure you, there is no heresy at work here (I can't bring myself to read that sentence seriously, but they really are loyalists ).

Second I did one of those tedious tasks and put a magnet under every battle sister and associated models, giving me an easier way to transport them.

Third and last, the rhino is done. Quite happy with the weathering, don't think I went to much overboard. And it's evenly distributed, because my rhinos just zip forward with no regard to cover or anything. The Emperor protects!
And I ordered some big bases to put all my rhino chassied tanks on, it looks cooler and I can also put magnets under the base to better transport the tanks.

To be fair I understand the use of that Forge World Alpha Legion transfer...arguably the best transfer sheet they have ever done. The rhino looks spot on.

I know that after having just bought the Crisis Protocol set that further purchases are probably the last thing you want...but any plans for any other characters? I really have never paid any attention to the Marvel comics universe but that Thanos miniature has me tempted...

Thanks youwashock! Though I was a bit wary of the free flowing pigments, used them without mixing. Should probably seal them, now that I think of it.

Thanks gobert! Bases will be nothing fancy, grey earth and some snow. But I love the look of the ridgerunner on one, so hope it works.

Thanks amazingturtles! They don't break for plague flies! Luckily doing the magnets was pretty easy. Slosh glue under base, put magnet on and done

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors! I'm anxious to get a second transfer sheet, it is just glorious. When looking at chapters for my loyalist (can'Ät stress this enough ) space marines I just stopped right when I saw the sheet and tested out the green metallic armour.

Luckily nearly all Marvel Crisis Protocol stuff is out of stock at my usual online shop and the sellers on Amazon have a hefty markup. So I'm not tempted at the moment, although having said that I pre-ordered the Taskmaster/Punisher set and would buy Hawkeye/Black Widow and Vision/Winter Soldier in a heartbeat.

Thanks Syro_! The important thing is that I will now glue magnets under each unit as soon as it is finished. I put magnets under most of my Space Marines in the past and have only to do it to some stragglers. It really makes transportation so much easier and with the homemade magnetic boxes.

Yeah, apart from the core set after a while the character packs seem to go out of print. I guess the smaller companies (are Atomic Mass one? I know little of them) have trouble keeping so many SKUS available and active so just stop producing them. So I guess any Marvel fans out there should order any must haves for them asap as you have done.

I have a pretty much full copy of that transfer sheet somewhere, it is glorious.

As far as I'm aware the current stock issues are just because of scaled down production. I really hope that the first SKUs don't already go out of print Just in case should start making a list what I want and need from the already released stuff and keep an eye out for restocks.

Papa Nurgle is doing the rounds so I had to forgo gaming on the last and this weekend. But I've not been totally idle and firstly did the basing on my first rhino. I actually thought it would fit the base a little better, but nevertheless it is now ready to be transported in my magnet box. Kept the base pretty simple, one coat black, some stripes to simulate a street and then some snow once the rhino was glued to the base.




Although I have to admit that the rust (that's what the pigment label says) looks more like dust, but WTH...

I finally bought the Reiver Lieutenant (because having 4 Primaris LTs is just not enough), it's such a great pose and I wanted him for a long time. And seeing as I will start my Crusade force with just Phobos units I wanted him included. He should paint up pretty fast. Like my Canoness he also got a silencer on his pistol. Everything is cooler with a silencer!



After reading through the new Codex I realized that I can't do legal terminator squads with my Space Marine Heroes ones. Luckily I had three termis lying around that I wanted to paint for my abandoned Deathwatch project and after some rebasing and pulling of arms they now are ready to join their better sculpted brothers (once I come around to building them).



I also had one Assault Marine from the same project around and decided that I need one more Lieutenant, just not a Primaris one. He will join my Jump Captain and the Jump Assault squad in battle and got a Power Axe (from some Fyreslayers bits I had) and a Deathwatch boltgun that looks esoteric enough I will use it as a combi-grav



And this month I want to get most of my Undead done, up first are the Nighthaunt for WarCry. Someone on this board did some nice black & white ghosts with color accents on the roses and leaves. I plan to steal that idea but execute it with far less diligence These will be my quick win ghosts, my plan is to paint in the color details, drain the mini in Basilicanum Grey and call it a day

What size base did you use for the rhino? There’s a surprising amount of overhang for what looks a big base. Still, the road markings and snow look great.

I think I recall the ghosts of which you speak, they were really cool with the roses dotted about. I can’t remember who’s they were either, sorry!

I wasn’t to sure how the base was going to turn out but you did a great job with it.

An all Phobos force sounds cool, will they be painted in the same scheme as your main army?

It's the 120 mm base, the one that comes with flyers or the Ridgerunner.

I somehow connect the ghosts to Fifty, but could be mistaken.

Thanks Yorkright! Actually Phobos units were the first I painted and once my LT is done I already have a 50 PL only Phobos force:



Sorry for bad light that pic was just to show my friend what will shoot and punch him off the battlefield I also have 5 Infiltrators still on sprue and 5 of the monopose Reiver bodies to convert into Incursors with my left over bits from the Infiltrator sprue. And may get another 5 Reivers to equip them with pistols, not sure yet.

youwashock wrote:Looking forward to the stylized ghosts. Tank base works, I think. Contemptor hanging out on the fringe due for paint soon?


Contemptor is one of those may paint him in the spur of the moment models. I think his panels are the right size so I could use Contrast color and he may get a coat of Akhelian Green (which looks blue over silver) on a whim.

Thanks zahnib! Now that I had another look there is the option of getting 170 mm bases. Had a look around but didn't find cheaper ones on eBay so I will stick with the small bases.

A little work was done, but I'm not satisfied with it. Wanted to make the ghost look like Cel Shading, but even after clean-up I'm not happy with the look. It will get a more traditional paintjob now.



More happy with the first low-effort ghost, now there's just another 7 to paint and 8 or 9 to build and prime.



Started work on Red, already enjoying putting down the base colors, such a lovely sculpt



And finally did a quick paintjob on the Primaris LT, very happy with him, one of my favorite sculpts, so happy he will join the fray once I start our Crusade campaign with a friend or two (November earliest).

Low effort ghostly looks great, is that just a contrast paint? My only note would be that the Rose looks a bit lost in the base as it doesn’t seem bright red enough, could be the lighting though. Nice job on the Lt, his blade looks nice and bloody!

The ghosts look good so far. Even if the cel shading didn't turn out like you planned, it's a win for you because you're trying something new.

I also liked the ghosts. The subtle colors in the base were particularly good, I thought, but could see bringing the roses themselves up a small touch.
