Not sure I have seen those old terminators in crimson fists colours before. They look great.

Re: Crimson Fists - Rogue Trader

Firstly, thank you for your comments and chat :)

Secondly, the librarian is almost done. As usual, just a few touch ups and a matt varnish to do.

Re: Crimson Fists - Rogue Trader

Not so sure about the Librarian above, the sword, I know what I want it to look like, smelting metal but it looks, eh. :? I'll come back to it at some point.

So, a tech marine is needed to fix up the old relic Land Raider and sooth its machine spirit. I really love this model, its got life to it, reality of the trade. The RT techie only has a standard backpack though. Oddly enough when I got a few odds and ends bits off ebay this servo arm was amongst them. It was meant to be, Mars has spoken. So a little modification away from the standard template construct plan and so far... (Does look just a little bit too large for the backpack but I cant waste a good servo arm.)














Shite, I've just realised, there is no reference to his chapter :o . Hmm... Have to work something out on that one.

Re: Crimson Fists - Rogue Trader

Not had much time of late, just tinkering here and there. The arms were too weak for practical play/use of the chaplain so I had to pin them properly and while I was at it, I magnatised a banner for him as the original one is missing. (Also a pain in the arse to transport glued in and tall as it was.) I also gave him a Crimson Fists red fist as is proper and right.





I've also been playing with a basing idea I saw on youtube As with all things it never worked as easy as shown but I finally got it how I like it. I have already been using it, but the trouble is if you put the over paint on too thick for intensity and colour it obviously obscures the zenithal highlighting which is not wanted. Too light and it looks dull with the undercoat coming through too stark. The photos don't do it justice but in the flesh its got a real 3d depth to it that moves as you move/look around the model. Proper happy.







Tech marines done. I decided not to mess about with trying to get some of the chapter blue and icon on him. Back pack turned out alright although the arm IS a little oversized. I'm pleased the random servo arm didn't get wasted in the odds and sods box though.





I've also got some transfers and microsol and started those on the models already done. Pics for another day.

Re: Crimson Fists - Rogue Trader

Tarantula painted and done. Always loved these from the Space Crusade set. Probably never use it in game buuuuuut...







I saw this idea on a tank for sale on ebay. A little magnet stuck inside and boom, Razor back if I need one.





Weapon options to make a Land Raider Prometheus. Quad heavy bolter per side to deal with them hordes and meat shields!



Looking at the tanks now, I wish I had been a bit braver with the highlighting instead of a simple low contrast zenithal overlight.The blue looks a bit, I don't flat? Hmmm...
