Imperial fists scout

So here's the start of the next scout squad I've started. I've decided to go for imperial fists for this squad because I've always loved the imperial fists colour scheme. Painting yellow can be a royal pain in the arse but I've never painted anything with a yellow scheme before so I thought....... Ahhhhh why not.

Luckily still.have some Iyanden Darksun foundation paint so I starred with that. Then I thought to myself it actually looks pretty nice so rather than layer up to a bright vibrant yellow, I washed it with nuln oil, applied another thin layer then highlighted with sunburst yellow. A job well done I think. I'm really pleased with it. I then did the cloth in desert yellow washed with nuln oil then highlighted with desert yellow.

I'm pretty pleased with it to be honest, apart from the combat blade. That needs re painting as it's just a pile of poo.

Just the.sarge, 2 snipers and a missile launcher guy to do now.

Let me know what you think guys.

Si till next time............ Oorah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dark angel scouts.

Hi guys. I've got 20 space marine scouts that I'll never actually use so I've decided to paint them up and then sell them off on ebay. I've got to say I've really enjoyed painting these guys and I'm a bit sorry to say goodbye to them. Especially when I've done such a good job on.them too. Lol.

So as always, please leave your feedback and let me know what you think.

So till next time............ Oorah!!!!!!!!!

Grey hunters.

Hi guys, here's what I've managed to get put together before I ran out of legs doh. Hopefully I'll be able to get my grubby little hands on some sooner rather than later but we'll see.

I just live the space wolf range, they're what I imagine when I think of space marines - rough a rugged and full of attitude.

I'm also pretty happy with my Wulfen dude, hes the one leaning back howling and wielding 2 chainswords. Bad ass baby..... Bad ass.

So till next time OORAH!!!!

Wish me luck. Oh and I'll get some pics up of the grey hunters I've built so far.

Face tutorial.

Right then, I said on Facebook that I was gonna attempt a tutorial on painting faces. So here it is. I don't claim to be an amazing golden daemon winning painter virtuoso type person by any means so don't expect any of that blending nonsense or wet pallets and a million different brushes cos I'm just way too lazy for that.
Right well let's get started.
First off you need to get your little plastic dude primed. I've gone with black. 
Then sling a dark brown all over the skin. Also since its a space marine head I've drybrushed the neck bits with boltgun metal. You know, the neck armour bit thing.  
 Right then so after that's dry I use dwarf flesh (sorry don't know the new colour name) and basically highlight all the raised bits but leave all the creases, this gives the feel of natural shadows on the face. (And that's why you based the skin with brown. See? I'm not mad) 
After that's dry, I go over with elf flesh (again I have no idea what the new colour is) on just the parts that natural light would catch, so like the nose, ears, brow, top of cheek bones etc.  
Then all that's left is the hair and teeth, pretty easy bits these, just drybrushed the hair a few different shades of brown adding a bit of orange at the end to make it ginger and then being careful adding some bleached bone to the teeth. 
Note that I've left the eyes well alone, I don't care how much of a good painter you are, as soon as eyes are added, that monster brutal killing machine of an astartes you've just painted ends up looking kinda retarded, so just leave them. It still looks good. The only time eyes should be don,e is on psykers when your looking to achieve an OSL effect. 
So there you have it. Hope it helped.
If not............ then I apologise for my failure and I will commence face palm in 3.2.1. 

So till next time.......... OORAH!!!!!!!

Plasma pistol hmm

Just a quick post, here's one of the plasma pistol toting khorne berzerkers of the renegade space wolves The Deathpack for my upcoming chaos army. Now I'm not sure if I'm happy with it or not. I've done this before with greens and blues and had pretty good results but I'm not sure with the red/orange plasma glow I've done here.

Let me know what you think, I'm not going for a mega detailed look on these guys, I'm just painting them up quickly as possible so I have a decentish looking army quickly while I work on my space wolves and orks. Either way I'm not gonna change it though cos I'm just too lazy. Lol.

So till next time....... OORAH!!!!!!

Da looted wun

Hi all. After my last game with my orks against a buddy of mine, I used burna boyz and absolutely loved them.....except for the fact I ran them without transport. So I managed to get my hands on a leman russ and a chimera to make a couple if looted wagons armed with a skorcha.

I decided to start with the chimera and came up with this bad boy. I cut it in half and lengthened it by about 3 inches just because really. Added some platforms and scrap and just some full on orkyness really. Just need to prime it and paint it now but as usual I can't just stick to one project at time as I've started on a small 1500pts chaos force based on renegade space wolf khorne berzerkers and renegade (nit fallen) dark angel's plague marines and nurgle bikers.

But anyhow, let me know what you think.

So till next time........OORAH!!!!!!!!
