brambleten
12-12-2007, 17:18
now onto my 40K, same colours apply. i do have plans to scratch build a warhound and a thunderbolt, so they will probably go in here as well. so, we have

5 deathwing termies
5 Deathwing termies
10 scouts (including an old chaplain i will convert)
10 man tactical squad

ravenwing attack squadron
predator
devastators
Rhino

comes to 2.5k pts

Tau
Commander
Bodyguard
2 X ethereals
10 kroot
roughly 70 fire warriors ( i havent counted)
20 gun drones (roughly)
Hammerhead / Sky Ray

comes to 1.3k pts

Necrons
Lord (has been converted)

20 warriors
7 scarab bases
5 destroyers

comes to 950pts (roughly)
and Chaos
daemon prince
sorcerer with spider legs
lord with jump pack
30 raptors (use asault marines so for both armies)
15 havocs
10 posessed
comes to 2.5k

so thats all my painting and modeling, unless you count my 5k combined LoTR, of which 98% is unpainted

does anyone have any tips about how to take pictures of marines with a 5.1 Mp camera, as i tried and failed, although it doesnt help not having a tripod

N810
13-12-2007, 16:55
you need some sort of white background
turn you camera to macro mode (the flower icon)
you camera probaly has an auto focus when you
press the main button down haff way (use it)
you don't need a tripod just prop your camera on something
or stand real still. some cameras have and anti-shake feature too.
oh yea it helps if you minis are on a table so its easier to get eye level with them.

Good Luck. ;)

http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4832.jpg

the reason he looks as if he is falling over is that he is. i had him on a flying base until it snapped, and i havent been able to get the piece out of the hole so i glued him onto a piece of sprue and then onto his normal base

When I paint white over black, any light colors or transparent colors (red)I will paint the black grey first.

cheers, its actually bleached bone, and i will endever to paint it dheneb stone first

brambleten

oh, and for anyone interested, the smoke is finished, thats the way it is. also, can you tell what ink was used on the sword?

brambleten
14-12-2007, 16:56
ok, here is a skink with javalin that was painted by One.Fit.Outcast a while ago

http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4841.jpg

here is my painted salamander squad, i will probably have to repaint the skinks, as i used my old method on them.
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4844.jpg

Your purple skink is your best one yet.
tou might want to straighten that javelin.

sigur
14-12-2007, 23:13
Wow, that's quite a task you got yourself into.;)

I don't know what level of painting you want to achieve for your miniatures but I think you should practice a bit brush control. Especially the DA could look a lot neater. I would suggest you to use basic methods of improving your painting, first and foremost drybrushing. I think this would improve your painting considerably and isn't too hard to pull off.

One.Fit.Outcast.
15-12-2007, 00:15
cheers N810, i painted that skink ^_^ but barkley you broke the spear you gayface!! how dare you!!
just to point out the mage does actually look good but the pics really don't do it justice.
i painted the champion of khorne on foot..you know the one with the pile of skulls...
pics coming soon =]

brambleten
15-12-2007, 10:37
thanks, everyone, i know im not the best painter, and i know i need to improve, but that comes with time. i will try to redo the command squad sometime, but for know im converting my necron lord, he was a basic guy, but now with gs cloak and rec. orb. he also has a metal staff thing, i will post pics when i finish undercoating him. i think the necrons will be necron abyss with probably dheneb stone trim.
oh, i didnt break the spear, the case did when i was getting him out. i will try to get some of my other lizards up today, but no promises

brambleten
15-12-2007, 10:42
oh, and sigur, i want to get them to a reasonable battle standard, but to be honest, it will be an achievement to get them all painted, whatever the standard

Norsehawk
15-12-2007, 11:15
On your command squad, I would suggest going over the robes again with the bleached bone that you are using for the color, maybe add a thinned down flesh or chestnut ink wash to them as well to pick out the shadows. The apothecary needs another coat on his helmet. If you can, pick up a bottle of the astronomicon grey from the foundation line, and paint that whereever you need to paint white later over black, it helps a ton to give the light color a chance to get good coverage, the foundation paint of either yellow or one of the browns would be good for the undercoat on the robes as well.

out of all your figures, the Tau battlesuit looks like the best one to me.

You might also want to try picking up a few smaller brushes, and have the figure either sitting on the table, or attached to something so it does not move around because in some spots your brushwork does look a bit shaky.

If I were doing a skink shield, what I would do would be to first paint the whole face of the shield black, and then very carefully pick out each of the scales in the chosen color(s) then go back and highlight each scale

brambleten
15-12-2007, 11:28
cheers, Norsehawk, i only really use the detail and fine detail brushes anyway, and i didnt paint the skink. i will try to get some of that grey sometime. i will try to leave the models on the table when i paint them, but i tend to pick them up when i do the details

Norsehawk
15-12-2007, 12:13
I don't really use citadel brushes too often, and I don't buy them anymore, so as they die on me, they don't get replaced.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v475/norsehawk/IMG_0977.jpg

The top brush is a citadel fine detail brush, the 2nd is a reaper 5/0 and the last is a brush I picked up at the arts store, an 18/0 brush I do most of my work with the reaper, but when I really need fine detail (such as painting each feather on a dark angel wing) I pull out the teeny brush

brambleten
15-12-2007, 15:20
wow, those are tiny brushes, ill look into those. i have decided, seeing the cover of the soul drinkers omnibus, i will repaint them purple, just like the soul drinkers. it says in the blurb that they served the emperor for thousands of years, so thats what they will do for me. i will still use them as DAs though

brambleten
16-12-2007, 15:06
ok, there might not be any updates on the painting for a while (my computer put in blue screen several times as soon as it loads up, and im waitning for my dad to have a look at it, so i will be using my mums computer until its fixed, and that means whatever time she isnt on ebay for. i will continue with painting though

matthew_swifty
17-12-2007, 20:17
I like Tom's skink :P

Your stuff isn't too bad really, compared to some of the stuff that we have at the club (excluding Doaky, Rob and Hardcastle)

brambleten
18-12-2007, 15:10
cheers swifty
too busy reading warhammer books to paint or base models at the moment. i have decided my chariot will be a lion chariot after all

One.Fit.Outcast.
18-12-2007, 21:04
haha yeahh
oh dear thats quite indicisive isn't it =S i thought you'd already built most of it?

brambleten
19-12-2007, 06:47
i built all the bits on the sprue that were basic for both chariots, then the lions and the horses, so i could change them, but its not worth the hastle

brambleten
22-12-2007, 18:56
ok, i got my chaos codex today, as my soul drinkers will be both imperial and excomunicated.
for this, i will use my basic soul drinkers with some chaos bitz added in, such as noise marines and havocs instead of devs and scouts.
oh, and my termies are now WIP, they are drybrushed merachite red over black, with full red shoulder pads

brambleten
22-12-2007, 20:47
so heres a couple of pictures to make sure i keep the camera in use. the first is my current paint space
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4848.jpg
this one is my current paint project, my spearmens shields
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4849.jpg
and this is my WIP Warhound, which will be just under full scale
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s184/brambleten/warhammer/HPIM4851.jpg

brambleten
23-12-2007, 11:02
here is my first attempt at a chaos list, and this is what i will be getting for it.

Chaos Lord with Terminator Armour, Mark of Tzeentch and Daemon Weapon
160

Chaos Lord with Mark of Slaanesh, Daemon Weapon and jump pack
155

10 Terminators with Terminator Champion, Icon of Khorne and 2 reaper auto cannons
390 (for these i will use my current Soul Drinkers termies, who have asault cannons, so they look similar-ish

10 Chaos marines with aspiring champion, icon of nurgle, twin linked bolter (champ.), power sword (champ), plasma pistol, Plasma gun
265 (will use soul drinker space marines with converted icon)

18 Noise Marines with noise champion, power weapon, doom siren, 16 sonic blasters and a blast master
555(!)

9 Chaos warriors with aspiring champion, icon of khorne, power weapon and 2 plasma pistols
225

15 Raptors with champion, 3 plasma pistols and a power weapon
375 (i will use SM asault marines, as they are cheaper)

2 spawn
80

Chaos Vindicator with havoc launcher
140

2 obliterators
150

total: 2495 pts

One.Fit.Outcast.
23-12-2007, 21:50
So are you planning to walt those terminators slowly across the battlefield in a unit with the lord in terminator armour and the mark of tzeentch considering the unit have the mark of khorne?...
and thats quite an insane unit of noise marines!
are those old edition terminators i spy btw?

brambleten
24-12-2007, 10:55
ok, after some moaing from others in the 40k army lists section, i made a list based around the fluff. the numbers were in bold but i cant be bothered to change them. Sarpedon will be a conversion somewhere between shelob and a daemon prince, whilst Telos wil have swords sticking out of hist stumps where some tech priests burned his hands off.

Sarpedon (Daemon Prince) with Mark of Tzeentch, Wings, Doombolt and Warptime
185
(the wings are there to let him keep ut with the raptors, and because his spider legs let him move faster than basic guys.)

Sgt Telos (Lord) with Mark of Tzeentch, Jump Pack, a pair of lightening claws and melta bombs.
160
(the twin lightening claws represent where he has stuck swords into his stumps and goes flying round madly)

10 Posessed with champion
270
(i wanted some in somewhere)

10 Marines with champion, 2 plasma pistols, power weapon, flamer and icon of tzeentch
255

10 Marines with champion, 2 plasma pistols, power weapon, flamer and icon of tzeentch
255

10 raptors with champion, power weapon, 2 plasma pistols, flamer and icon of tzeentch
305

10 raptors with champion, power weapon, 2 plasma pistols, flamer, melta bombs and icon of tzeentch
310

10 raptors with champion, power weapon, 2 plasma pistols, flamer, melta bombs and icon of tzeentch
310

13 Havocs with champion, 4 lascannons, plasma pistol, power weapon and icon of tzeentch
450

that should come to 2500pts and 75 men, no tanks. i think its fluffy enough

brambleten
24-12-2007, 10:56
oh, and Tom, yes, they are 3rd edition termies, which will be drybrushed merachite red, with block merachite red shoulder pads.

cyprus01
24-12-2007, 11:02
it looks sooooooo good and by the way there is pics in my log brambleten

brambleten
24-12-2007, 11:06
im going to wait til after christmas before spraying any more models, due to a knowledge swordmasters and more Phoenix guard. oh, and the nice dragon.

brambleten
24-12-2007, 12:18
ok, here is a list of things i am going to have to get in order to field this fluffy chaos army.
Daemon Prince
lord with jump pack
2 boxes of posessed
6 space marine asault squads (christmas money has supplied enough for all of these, so its up to GW Carlisle to have them)
scrap shelob, ill get some of those necron Spyder legs and hack them apart
5 man chaos marine set.
a garnd total, if buying from GW, of 196. that means i will be getting a little at a time, starting with the asault squads

One.Fit.Outcast.
24-12-2007, 19:27
if i was you, i'd try and get a lot of cheap chaos bitz off eBay or barter them off someone who's had boxes of chaos warriors (khorne berserkers really don't come with many spare bitz so i'm no use), cause with 6 boxes of SM assault marines, u REALLY need to customize them a bit to stop you dying of boredom while painting/assembling them.
oh yeah, go comment my forum just cause no-one has for a while =[ =P

brambleten
24-12-2007, 20:42
i think i will get enouigh bitz from the posessed and the box of marines to stop me dying of boredom, although mark of chaos will probably set me back by a few hours every day now

One.Fit.Outcast.
25-12-2007, 20:50
are you not going to use the same models for both armies?
that's what i thought you were doing, and it would make much more economical sense while being slightly beardy, and you could only use 1 army at once rather than like having them fight each other or something when you're bored.

brambleten
26-12-2007, 13:27
yes, im using the same models for both armies, bar a chaos lord with jump pack and a converted daemon prince, then the posessed and havocs. the raptors and the marines will be the same

brambleten
26-12-2007, 21:16
ok, the dragon itself is mostly paineted, but in a grey/white/black colour scheme, so it can easily be redone. the eagle is made and based, and the swordmasters under coated. i will try to take pics in the morning. i am taking part in GWs "Winter War", so i want to get things painted reasonably fast.

One.Fit.Outcast.
28-12-2007, 16:51
what's the winter war thing btw?
i watched 1k battle between nids nd tau going ultra-slow as neither side seemed to really be doing much other than slowly inching forward, so is it just a standard GW "the more you play the better you do" thing?

brambleten
28-12-2007, 16:58
yeah, if u win the 40k thing, at carlisle, u get a baneblade, if u win fantasy u get a dragon, and if u win LoTR, u get a mumak. its not really fair on the fantasy players, if u think about the cost of the prizes

brambleten
29-12-2007, 15:22
ok, here are a batch of 10 WIP pics of my dragon. my WIP carny will follow, as will librarian, termies and soul drinker (both) colour trial, all WIP.

i still need to do the brass and highlight/shade, so feel free to criticize it

One.Fit.Outcast.
29-12-2007, 21:42
yeah but how many points do you need to win etc?
how do you reckon lots of stealers with a fex or 2'd fair?...
the dragon does look (surprisingly =P) good btw, the carnosaur just a little behind it @tm but im sure you'll get it up to the same standard..well i hope so anyway.

brambleten
30-12-2007, 13:05
you need more points than your opponents to win. its 1k 40k, 1.5k WHFB and 500pts LoTR. yeah, the carnosaur is worse, but it needs touching up/ highlighting etc, where as the dragon is almost finished

brambleten
31-12-2007, 21:17
ok, in the last of my christmas money i decided that my CSMs needed raptors less than my Tau needed a tank, so i bought a sky ray, which just so happens to also include the hammerhead turret sprue as well, so i have a choice of 3 tanks to field

brambleten
01-01-2008, 13:58
ok, here is some pictures of my hammerhead/sky ray. i did this yesterday, but some of it needs finishing/ touching up etc. i am not going to highlight/ shade anything except teh metal, as i like the tau to have a block colour scheme

does anyone have any tips for painting elf flesh? i dont have any dwarf flesh, but i do have brown/chesnut/flesh inks and elf flesh, and a bit of bronzed flesh

EDIT: doesnt matter, ive found that chesnut ink over a white undercoat looks sort of elfy

brambleten
12-01-2008, 16:19
ok, i have 1 spearman finished, bar one of the gems, and the other needs another coat of green ink. i will get pics of him and the finished ion cannon as soon as i can get hold of my mums camera

I like the sky ray...Imperial Purple is my second favorite citadel paint ever. Shame they took it away. The current Liche Purple isn't too bad though.

I also enjoy working with purple very much.
:)


@brambleten: The Skyray is looking nice; pretty neat painting. One thing though: Please use the "edit"-button to avoid double-posting. I know, it's not that much of a problem in painting logs but somehow you managed to do some triple-postings and even a quadro-posting eventhough the new postings didn't contain much information. So please use the "edit"-button in the future. Thanks and happy painting!

oh come on you just saw my purple looked good and after i told you it was easy to paint as well stole the idea! =P
it's fine though as it appears to be improving your painting a bit, well done. do highlight the tau though they'll look LOTS better if you do.

i think my next army will have to be some orange and blue empire. are there any factions/provinces that have that scheme?

One.Fit.Outcast.
21-01-2008, 22:47
why/how is the paint chipping on ur chaos lord already?
altdorf has blue/red (altdorf is the the biggest city & the capital)
Nordland has blue/browny-yellow and is mainly famous for it's navy
you could just say it's a variant on one of those regions.
BUT DO YOUR HIGH ELVES/LIZARDMEN/TAU/NECRONS/SMURFS/CHAOS 1st!!

brambleten
22-01-2008, 06:37
no SMurfs, soul drinkers. thats not paint chipped, thats the spray not working. my Empire will be the Altdorf Reik River Regiment (saw it on the US GW site after a link) its blue with orange and supports the fluff of no artillery

the bane of my life, and the thing appart from me that destroys my minis

ok, i now have 20 swordsmen and 2 mages for my empire, which will be a side project while i finish my elves. i will post a pic of a tester when i get some new white spray. is there a cheaper equivalent to GW?

ok, i got spray, so i will get some testers up this week. should i put my empire up in a new log or keep this one?

||-MARKO-||
29-01-2008, 18:56
With Some Luck, this doesn't count and threadomancy. :p

I just want to congratulate you on your improvement since the start of the log. the dragon looks much better than the original stuff, and the new skinks are an unbeleivable improvement on the original ones you posted.

So again, Well Done, and keep posting stuff up, Marko

brambleten
29-01-2008, 19:36
these skinks were actually done just after the old ones, only i used watered down regal blue instead of straight Hawk Turquoise. i think the reason teh dragon looks better is because i did it all at once, rather than bits at a time. cheers. i hope this thread isnt really that dead, but i have coursework at the moment, so very little painting is occuring
