Right, that's the skin mostly done. I didn't know how to tackle this one right away, but I painted a LOT of zombies and Nurgle minis in my time, so I was confident enough to just go ahead and see what I come up with. The nice thing is that with Zombie/Nurgly skin you can't do much wrong anyway; just see that it doesn't get too dark.
Hey guys, Lecoqadoodledo here with a recent project. I and several others were asked to paint up a Primaris Marine each for our local store, in various schemes to show off the new sculpt. I decided on Blood Ravens because I’ve always liked the colour palette but never had the chance to try it out. Overall I kept each colour straightforward as I only had a few days to paint it. I aimed for just a real clean paint job, and I’m pretty happy with how it came out.
The Skaven Blood Bowl players are done and just waiting for the varnish to dry, so it's time to start the next project: reworking another Ultramarines squad. This time, it's my Devastators, and from the picture above, you can see what I will change. The three grey models in the back are new additions, one model will get new legs, the kneeling Mk6 legs will get a proper Mk6 upper body, one model will get a modern style missile ammo backpack, all models will be upgraded to 32mm bases and I'll also refine the highlights of all older paint jobs. I think I'll also change the weapon loadout for the Sergeant, as you in 8th Edition you no longer need to forfeit his shooting for using the Signum. Let's do this!
A quick update on the progress of my Adeptus Mechanicus army for 40k. The next addition to my army is some Kastelan Robots. I've basecoated them all, and will next move onto applying transfers before adding shades and then details. These are quite fun models to paint!
Hey all, so excited to finally get my hands on the new 8th edition Dark Imperium set and all those lovely new models. Today I thought I'd show the beginnings of a pair of Death Guards in which I'm trying out a scheme.
I'm trying something that I have been thinking about for while in that I sort of want to replicate a similar scheme as what I did when I painted the Blight Kings. Not certain how it's going to turn out, but will be interesting and a lot of fun. So far I have just mapped out a basic tone to the models, given a oil wash and some basic highlights. Hopefully when back from holidays I can get these two models finished rather swiftly.
As for the new release of Dark Imperium I am loving it. It's just so nice and refreshing to have a restart to the game of 40K that I can grasp fairly quickly and get playing. I have had about 5 games with my wife and really like it. It's very cool and the models are gorgeous. I'm really hoping that GW will release more Death Guard models as I would buy them in a heart beat. What do you all think of the new release?
