Hello everyone, I wasn't sure where to put this as it's mostly figures but maybe later I will be adding vehicles so I guess Science Fiction it is. I was introduced to warhammer about 2 years ago by my college flatmate. he wasn't into building and or playing but had lots of books and a very good looking wallpaper on his computer so I went out and bought my first set of figures. it was the easy to build primaris intersessors with the paints. they came out okay and I gifted them to my flatmate. but somehow I was fixed... Over the last 2 years I bought the dark imperium starter set, the start collecting sets of Space marines and adeptus mechanicus, and some other sets. some of the models where started and some almost finished but mainly not. I am mostly a modeller, so my figures will be display pieces more than gaming equipment. I have not jet started reading the rules book but will do so someday... So I guess now is the time that I start building and more importantly painting all those models to give me an army for the unlikely event that I will find someone in my vicinity to play with... I will start this thread with a terminator squad. they look awesome and should boost my mojo for this project. Before I show you the pictures of my progress so far I want to express my admiration for the work of @Will Vale I hope to someday, with lots of practice, come close to your painting and photographing skills. that being said... my pictures are horrible and my painting skills... well those figures are something else than my usual ships... so let's get started I started to decide the poses and equipment each model should get. I have no idea whether this is conforming to the rules or not, it just looks cool and gives an interesting squad. I joined as much as I thought was good for painting and after sanding all mold lines and drilling out the gun barrels I fixed them with blue tac. After priming everything with alclad primer I started with a basecoat of tamiya flat blue. I used tamiya because I had not much luck with airbrushing the citadel paints. I will experiment more when I get my hands on some flow improver as the tamiya paint retarder did not work so well. I also started the head of the squad leader... (Now I wish I had a good camera on a tripod) Its mostly sephia and light pink washes over white basecoat follows by some highlights... I'm still practicing blending colors in smooth transitions and I will most likely go over it again. please excute the red around the mouth... It looks like he had a long kissing with a lady of the night I did not see exactly where the mouth was until I took the picture... I will fix that later and use my magnifying glasses to properly paint the lips (if I get the paint to the right consistency) Anyways... All tips, criticism, jokes, and general comments welcome! Cheers Konrad
Hi folks, Finally got my paints and things unpacked this weekend and spent an hour priming some miniatures I've been building in front of the TV for the last few nights. These are the plastic Imperial Assassin's from a Games Workshop board game. There are four assassins and a Chaos sorcerer for them to attempt to assassinate. The above is the Callidus (lady of disguise) type, the other three below are the Vindicare (boring sniper), Eversor (drug crazed murder skeleton) and Culexus (snuffs out souls by touching people). They're completely mad and I love them - the models capture the insanity of the original metal designs very well but have much better poses. I left them off the bases for painting access purposes, except for the Callidus whose pose doesn't pose (ha) any problems in that regard. Fit was great, cleaning up the mould lines took a while and assembly was fiddly in places because the parts are small (especially the Callidus' head). And I really like the way they've balanced the woman-in-skin-tight-body-suit trope with the fact that the three guys are all wearing similar stuff and showing off everything they've got as a result. Back and front! Paint scheme is probably going to be black - which is the standard - but I'm wondering about a glossy beetly black-brown to get an Alien feel? Either that or black-green I think. (NB: Please don't tell me that I'm foolish for buying overpriced tat, even with a 20% discount I feel bad about it but also felt like I wanted a treat after weeks of cardboard boxes and DIY... Well OK, you can tell me that but I'm not listening. LALALALALAAAAAA ) Cheers, Will
