Finished painting the grav cannons on the Centurions as well.
Since I already uploaded these to imgur and I’m feeling lazy and tired at the moment, I’ll just embed that album here.
And the Centurions (the ones with the white background have the grav cannons/grav amp).
Finished the bikers off!
I started redoing the second marine in my old tactical squad. He’s got almost all the base colors on him and ready for shading.
There was an accident in the middle of getting ready to do some very minor touch-ups to the marine above… Turns out squeezing a dropper bottle with a bit of a plug in it can have explosive results.
So, the assault terminators got all their silver done! Surprise!
I just finished doing the colors on bases for these bikers along with all of the touch-ups. I decided not to emphasize the trim on the basic bikers, just on the captain. I still need to do a bit of touch-up on the tires, but I think I’m going to move forward with doing the shading. Still need to do the painting on the Tyranid heads the captain is riding over.
It’s amazing how bad you think your model may look in the middle of painting it.
I wasn’t happy with how this was turning out, but I pushed on, and I’m happy with the result. Turns out detail work can compensate for a lot. Whodathunkit?
Got the red on all the bikers, still just missing a couple of purity seals. Also got the white on the wings and purity seals, as well as the sergeant’s robes. Missed a couple purity seals on the sergeant. Next up, golds and other details. Might start on the touch-ups as well (there’s a lot of them…).
So my successor chapter to the Dark Angels really fancies terminators. The challenge here was to make them similar to the original Deathwing, but make the have their own spin.
Didn’t get a picture done this week, too much going on. Got the boltgun metal on all the bikers. Next up, probably whites and reds.
So, I finally got around to starting to put the remaining colors on those other bikers I sprayed with silver a couple of months ago. I’m probably not going to do these guys up to the best of my ability; honestly, I’m not super impressed with the Dark Vengeance models, and I just want these to look presentable. I don’t need them to look amazing. I’ll probably take some time on the captain, however– he’s in the foreground, a bit blurry.
I’ll probably be doing the librarian and Master of the Forge after I get these guys done. Starting to get a hankerin’ to get going on those Tau I have sitting in their box…
No update last week, I was pretty busy and had just gotten started working on these guys. In the effort to get things primed before it gets too cold outside, here’s my next batch of guys ready for priming.
Here are the completed pics for the Master of the Forge on his bike. I’m pleased with how it turned out, after all the magnetizing.
And with the conversion beamer:
