Re: Junes Fun Painting Challenge

OK, Not exactly finished, these are missing a few spots of white here and there on gems and lenses and I didn't take varnish with me but they're a couple hours form finished (they will be on du time tomorrow)

The dread turned a little more coloured than what I wanted at the beginning, might want to erase a few details...
The terminator captain has a weird face I'm not happy with but the goat feet champion looks ice so I'm quite happy with those. (some close ups and better pics on the blog soon...

They look great. What's your pale paint recipe for the head of the banner bearer in the top pic (chaos renegade)? I was thinking of using a similar colour for my chaos cavalry heads.

Nice showcase Asslessman.

Older chaos models look so much better than the current raft of melodramatic black metal fans that they've become. Proper other world biomechanical look to them.

Thanks, the recipe is quite simple :
Base color : Dark flesh (Prince august) it does not look like a dark skin colour at all, it's closer to an more vibrant old elf flesh
Wash : devlan mud
Highlights : thinned dark flesh
and then thinned bleached bone (or any equivalent, I use the game colour one before moving on to the ushabti one)
and then very thinned white

When I want to take the time (which I did not in this case) I add matt medium when thinning the paint down

Thanks and yes, I do agree with you, I may prove this point in the most objective way since after the RT renegades, I'm moving on the 2nd ed marines and so on, with always the same paint job and techniques to see which ones look the best.
These old renegades are the only ones so far which really look like they've spent 10000 years in space seeking vengeance (Dark vengeance chosens are really good in this too, just my taste).


Oh and by the way, the dark spots on the bases are supposed to be some sort of oil leaks or disgusting liquid but it needs gloss or any watery effect to pop out...

Y'know, I always thought Tyrell's (from Combat Cards, second from right in top photo) tentacles were a sloppy conversion attempt by an early Citadeller... didn't realise it was a part of the actual model...

Well it's true these tentacles are not the best looking I've ever seen but they look sufficiently organic and chaotic for the purpose I guess ;)

I've finished the minis this afternoon (apart from the varnishing) and added a temporary banner on the captain (before having a greater idea) designed for the sole purpose of finishing this painting challenge and crafted/painted in 40 minutes (hence the pigeon looking eagle...).
Thank you Orlygg for your banner tutorial btw. Tried it here and it gave me the will to try some more with more elaborate designs.

I finished the lenses on the dread but still not very glad with them.

Re: Junes Fun Painting Challenge

Against the odds I have finished painting my marines today and even got some back banners done. But since I have no camera handy to take pics I guess that didn't really happen!

No that's OK, I'm sure John will let you have the points for the banners...with a penalty for being late! Mwahahaha

No one said anything late penalties.
