Had more free time than expected and got a bit carried away on the assembly line. I don't remember when it happened, but I ran out of my old Mordian Blue that I was using for all of the 3rd Company up until this point. These guys will definitely be a lighter blue than everything I've made so far. I expect it to get toned down quite a bit after adding some other base colors, washes, battle damage, etc. We shall see.


3rd Co progress:

1st Tactical - Base coated
2nd Tactical - Complete

4th Tactical - Base coated

Not much of an update this time. I’ve been rearranging my garage and building a new work bench, so that’s been sapping most of my free time. I’m still just blocking in colors but they’re coming along. This is the still unnamed 1st Squad of the 3rd Company. I’ve decided to do something unique for each squad to help differentiate them on and off the table. This first squad will be something simple. This being 1st Squad, I’ll consider them the senior squad of the company. I’ll paint up and add on some random battle honors and campaign badges. I’m also planning to add a vertical red stripe to their squad marking shoulder pad to help unify them visually.


3rd Co progress:

1st Tactical - Working
2nd Tactical - Complete
3rd Tactical - Built
4th Tactical - Built
5th Tactical - Complete
6th Tactical - Built
7th Assault - Unbuilt
8th Assault - Unbuilt
9th Devastator - Unbuilt
10th Devastator - Unbuilt

I’m thinking of painting a glowing effect on the Sgts power fist. Does anybody have any experience with that? How does it look seeing it in person every time? Is it worth it? I have mixed feelings looking at pictures of it.

You have a lot of really cool conversions and poses in here. Not sure about your powerfist question, unfortunately. I myself find that every time I try to get too fancy with effects I usually regret doing so. May I ask what blue you are using on these guys?

Thanks commando! I feel similarly about effects, but I think I’m going to give it a try anyways. As for the blue, unfortunately I’m still using up a bunch of the old Citadel paint line, so I’m not too sure if the colors transferred over exactly to the “new” line. Regardless, these latest guys have been primed black, then base coated with Regal Blue and highlighted with Ultramarines Blue. The older models are just primed black and painted Macragge Blue.
