  3. Hi all, I found some Warhammer scenery the other day while I was looking for something else - it's the set of Eldritch Ruins from one of the Kill Team boxes, and I put it aside originally because it looked like a lot of work to clean up. It's from the scenery range so made in China and not *quite* as nice as the stuff from Nottingham. It turned out to be better than expected with nice detail in hard (almost vinyl-like) styrene,although there were a lot of edges to scrape down and I ended up covered in a thick layer of pale green styrene shavings. Interestingly it has the look of being hand-sculpted which is unusual as most of the recent scenery is digital & complete with tooling contour lines. It's painted mostly with the contrast paints plus some normal stuff for details. I wanted it to look desertey rather than jungle, and also wanted to avoid using any green at all for the plants - they're all shades of red instead. I think the Saim-Hann rune (above) is my fave of the two pieces. I tried to get the runes to look Eldar - they're presumably made from wraithbone which is a sort of organic material potentially full of souls. It started as a pale tan and I highlighted with white ink, but then worked a lot of yellow-green into the corners and finally added some pale blue in the damaged sections. The big flower I left til last and blended through yellow/orange/warm red/cool red/dark brown. It looks quite aggressive but I don't see how it's going to catch anything other than very slow and stupid birds. Last thing was to add some moss from red flock and matt medium. It looked a bit so-so but shading around with Agrax and drybrushing with scarlet and pink has lifted it a bit and I think it works. It's been a pleasant digression - painting scenery is messy fun and it only took a couple of days. I will get back to the Titanicus buildings soon Cheers, Will
  4. WIP Thread here I'm calling this "done", though I have a hankering to maybe weather it. But I rather like to be able to see the cartoonish quality of the imagery involved in this model. It's fun, does it need to be "real"? Dunno. Anyhow, here are some pictures, as I mentioned in the WIP I struggled with depth of field problem photographing the completed model. I got out the DSLR and put a macro lens on and stopped it down to F16 and I was still getting some issues. Next step would have been the tripod and stop it right down but I decided enough was enough. Without further ado some piccies and then some thoughts on the kit The vehicle isn't actually stuck on the base (the weathering dilemma you see) but I'm pretty pleased with it. Thoughts on the Kit I confess when I opened the box I was a trifle disappointed, only one sprue of plastic. But don't be fooled, there is a lot of work in this kit. The instructions are adequate and beautifully presented but they do not stress how important it is to paint as you go along otherwise it will be almost impossible to paint some of the detail particularly inside the vehicle. That said, a lot of the detail will never be seen again once assembled. For example there are discarded empty bottles and cans on the floor, In know they are there, and I know I have painted them, but I'm not sure I could show you them! The fit of components is absolutely exemplary, have a look at the driver in the last photo, his right arm is added after he was stuck into the vehicle he is tight against the frame of the vehicle but the fit is absolutely perfect, I don't think I even had to touch in the paint. Criticism. It's been a long while since I built or painted anything by Games Workshop and I miss the metal. Whilst the plastic figures give good detail, I think that you get finer detail on White metal. But you would struggle to build the vehicle out of anything but plastic so I suppose there is a trade to be made. Do GW still do metal figures? I hope so, they used to be very good indeed. In summary, a fun build and I am very tempted to add a companion vehicle such as the "Megatrakk Scrapjet". I don't think I can give a finer endorsement.
  5. Hi All, here's a WH40K Ultramarines Chapter Master that I finished a while back. He was part of a set of metal figures - I still haven't got around to any of the others as this one was my favourite. I painted him using GW/Citadel acrylics. Thanks for looking, Andrew
  6. Picked these 2 figures up a while ago and forgot they were in the drawer of things to do. They are both the Citadel resin finecast models which replaced the pewter style ones GW used to make. If I am honest those resin models were a terrible experience, the amount of flash and warping was insane. Sgt Telion had microbubbles all over the place that needed filling. Librarian Tigurius staff was has bent as a rainbow and still looks decidedly kinked even after trying the resin in hot water trick to try and unbend it. For around a tenner each I would have expected much better quality. None the less I persevered and got them painted. First up is Chief Librarian Tigurius - he is a HQ model that can be used as the leader of your army. Tigurius 1 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr Tigurius 4 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr Tigurius 2 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr Next is Sgt Telion - he is basically a pimped out scout and can only be assigned to a scout group or used solo Telion 1 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr Telion 2 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr Telion 3 by OCUK Wildman, on Flickr
  7. Hey guys, i would like to show you my first at 2016 and the very first figure I have always loved Warhammer (does not matter if "classic" or 40k) and these 28mm figures are quite cute little gems (the cast is amazingly well done by Citadel). And because i love wolves, my favourite unit are the Space Wolves Well, here is the first of them - i have not used any Warhammer rules for painting, just painted it as i like (speaking about colour scheme and weapon chose) So here is the grey hunter, armed with plasma pistol and bolt pistol. I have tried some new techniques to me and obviously have a lot to learn yet But i had A LOT of fun! And one for the size comparing Thanks for watching guys and hopefuly i ll add more figures in better quality over times
  8. This is my first WH40K figure in my modelling history I like Ork's nature and how they work with their rusty equipment. Honestly, I feel my work is still leak of some pattern decorations compare with others. I may give myself this challenge next time. The figure is completed on few months ago and painted by Vallejo acrylic, plus little MIG AMMO dusty weathering on feet.
  9. Hi folk, I finished my Imperial Knight kit and enjoyed every minute. A quick step-by-step is here should anyone wish to view it: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234993227-warhammer-40k-imperial-knight-carapace-and-other-bits-done/ I opted for the Knight Galant boxing which adds more versions over the original kit. It costs a tenner more but you get the choice of carapace mounted weaponry and new main weapons over and above the first edition. I'm not a gamer so, on this occasion I chose a colour scheme that I liked and it evolved into something resembling "House Terryn" in the GW Codex. GW cleverly give the modeller or gamer a lot of freedom when they write their Codexes. If you prefer to make something up entirely then they call those Knights "Freeblades" and allow the modeller to work them in with their own backstory. Great lateral thinking. I bought the Codex as a kind of inspirational tool and marvelled at the painting skills that the 'Eavy Metal workshop have lavished on their miniatures. Beautiful painting in a typical GW style. Great to look at. I also watched some Youtube tutorials to get a feel for the kit before I started. Most modellers choose a very artistic finish to their creations. Some employ wild airbrush techniques, others use amazing hand painted murals to add that wow factor. Some are pristine, others are heavily weathered. Each finished model is unique to the builder and most of them look superb. I decided that I'd like to try some of the techniques that the armour community use on a regular basis. This model would give me a chance to flex my artistic side in way that aircraft modelling rarely permits. Chipped and worn paint, rust and weathering, basing, all techniques that I only use occasionally. For this model I used the GW Chaos black spray can to prime the bare plastic and give a good key for the next layers. I then sprayed some Alclad II lacquer over this on the chassis components like the legs and body of the knight. Many modellers will finish the main components in metal colours then apply the colourful house schemes to the armour panels but I've gone a slightly different route. Instead of bare metal I chose to paint everything in the way armour gets painted. It's not cammo of course but it is universally covered in the same way a tank or APC might be.. With the Alclad II stainless steel down I added salt in places and sprayed on a coat of hairspray in readiness for the initial weathering stages. I used a combination of acrylic blues through the airbrush starting with the darkest shade and working my way through three layers getting gradually lighter. This is not the actual House Terryn base colour, just something I had on my paint shelf.
  10. Ork Deff Dread Warhammer 40,000 Another old Warhammer build. Not painted to any of the standard GW Ork clan colour schemes as I don't really like them that much. I don't play so I don't have to worry about army building and I go with what colour appeals at the time. With this it was a desert scheme, albeit with rather conspicuous bright blue highlights. For the most part, it's OOB but I replaced the moulded cables with insulated wire and the tusks came from an Ork Battlewagon. Enjoy the shots Thanks for looking Andy
  11. Hi all, This is the first model I've finished in a while and it was a great half term build that's motivated me to do more kits. This particular kit was an impulse buy, automotive and some fast jets are my usual thing but nonetheless, it's a very interesting area to get into. I really should have gone with a flat clear-coat as it's quite difficult to see any of the colour variations... Next time I suppose. Here's a link to the WIP for bit of bedtime reading: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234955881-warhammer-40k-eldar-war-walker/ Thanks for your time and interest.

  12. Hi all, It's been a while since my last WIP and I've done almost naff all in-between. I started this build yesterday while I had some 'quiet time'. I had to sell 90% of my stash a few months ago but on the positive side, this is the perfect opportunity to build a budget kit... 1. ...Which this isn't. There's a new Games Workshop store literally down the road from college. A while back, I needed some blue paint for a sculpture but came out with this £18.50 kit and no blue paint... Nice shop full of friendly people, shame their products are so expensive. 2. The kit is very nicely moulded, with fast and easy assembly in mind as the aim is to build a large army. There's not that much to this kit, so it looks set to be a quick WIP which suits the 'Half Term' holiday! The decal sheet is pretty good with a massive range of markings, some in pearlescent finish. 3. Even though this is all fantastical, there is literally a by the book way of going about this but you can paint your model/army however you want, which I will do... Whilst I was building/cleaning up sub assemblies yesterday, I lined up a few basic military style schemes: Grey (XF-24 base with XF-66 shadows and XF-53 highlights) Brown (XF-64 base with X-9 shadows and XF-52 highlights) Olive (XF-51 base with XF-62 shadows and XF-49 highlights) I'm going for the olive scheme as I'm fond of the look of Vietnam era Cobra and Huey's, battered olive drab with bits of wild colour here and there. Not too fond of the wacky 'race car' type paint schemes that are the norm with this stuff! 4. First off, the black parts. I mixed too much black paint (XF-1), so I had a little try at 'pre-shading'. Bit pointless as I'm supposed to be using the colours to do this... 5. Khaki Drab base (XF-51). The black 'pre-shade' actually seemed to work quite well but I kept on layering on more paint until it was barely noticeable... Now I will have to rely on the colours for effect! 6. Later yesterday night, I applied the Olive Drab shadows (XF-62) and Khaki highlights (XF-49). At the time, the effect seemed too stark, so I misted over the base and highlights with over-thinned Khaki. I might have gone a bit too far as the model looks quite dusty from a distance... 7. ...Close up, it looks O.K. I was a bit more sensible with regards to the cockpit and operator, the colour blends and highlights are much better to my eyes. This is my first attempt at painting these things, pre-shading and simulated lighting so it's a bit of a curve! I also brush painted the black details with black (XF-1) and rubber black (XF-85), Tamiya flat paints brush surprisingly well when thinned a little. A gloss clear-coat was applied after the black paints had dried. 8. With the gloss clear-coat given almost 24hrs to flatten and cure, I'm back on it this evening. I've not had much success with Tamiya gloss clear but this time it worked really well. After some trials, I found that a slightly 'over-thinned' mixture first misted on then followed by a wet coat after an hour, yielded the best result. 9. I thought it best to add a little colour to one of the legs, so I did this while rotating around applying the decals. Looks like something psychedelic is happening... I'll probably opt for a semi-gloss finish as the Tamiya flat clear-coat is quite tricky to use... This leg and the areas with the decals have been since been sealed with a gloss clear-coat. I'll leave the model for 48hrs so that the clear-coat can flatten and cure before moving onto the oil based stuff. More to follow soon, thanks for looking. (Images removed on request of new owner)
