Follow Me Boys

I've pretty much finished all the models I'll be taking to Nova to field so I've just been messing around with some that I might take to the painting contest. I had this model sitting here so figure'd I painting him up. 
I'm debating on the chainfist and whether I'm going to add some blood and gore. I like the way he's coming along and don't know if it will add or take away from it.

Been doing some free hand adding the strips on the bottom and center as well as adding the raven symbol. I think I'm going to adjust the icon a little, still feels a little off.. 

Also I've been going very hard on the metallics.. It's metallic paint but I'm blending and mod'n it to really show the highlights but still keeping the gritty feel.

Get Wrecked


I've been getting some more progress in and I'm getting close to be done these guys. I originally was going to put this Dread in a list but I think I'm just going to enter him in the painting competition and just leave him there. I think he's looking pretty solid and the OSL is almost done. I'm going to probably do one final weathering pass and then call him done. There are a few places I want to tone down but overall pretty happy with him and then base now. The added gore made it look more realistic to me.

These two dudes are pretty much done as well. The OSL on the termie took longer then a thought I kept touching up things here and there. But I think it's time to call him done. The sniper is also done .. it was just some small touch ups.

9 is a terrible number


Hey hey .. back for another post.. I've been crazy busy but I've been putting some time in at the painting table so I do have a bunch of stuff I've been working on. Nothing is completely done as I've been bouncing around as it's been a lot. As so 9 .. I've been painting 8 Termies and then I picked up 9 bikes.. wow.. 9 bikes is a big investment. 

First been working on this Dread.. So far pretty happy with him and I'll need to start on the fine details of paint but I'm also still messing around with the gore and I think it needs a few more strands. Thats still up for debate. 

I also picked up the new(to me at least) FW Sniper guy. He's pretty cool looking and I think will be added into my Mor Deythan as a Shade or a LoW. I switched up his base to match the rest RG. I also added the Raven to his left shoulder. 

Which then leads us to the bikes. I thought a large solid squad sounded cool but man it's way more of an investment then I originally thought and man they take up a lot of real estate on the board. They are looking good but man .. it's a lot haha

So.. that's where I am.. good progress and now that I've at a good spot on all of them it's time to start all the final touches and getting them done. This year I'm really hoping to have everything done much soon for Nova so I'm not rushing in the final hours before hand. I'd like to be completely done by July. We'll see if I can make that happen. Cheers!
