Hi,
I am totally happy with the new SH minis and the tons of beautiful details and so i decided not to paint them in my Deathwing army style but started the great WD tutorial from Anja Wettergren.
Here are the first steps with Lorenzo:

The overall all look is lovely.I like the skin tone and armour.

Are you going to be doing a step by step of the genestealers aswell?

Loved your deathwing , and I'm loving these guys even more!

Great stuff, I'll be following!

I already liked your Deathwing army, but these models look so much better. :eek: The painting is amazing. I would like to see you painting the Genestealers.

15-09-2009, 15:22
Wow, that is some amazing painting and pretty much like a much better painted version of how I would like mine to look!
Is the setp by step guide in the latest WD?

Your highlighting skills are simply absurd, tell me, to which nefarious deity did you sell your soul to gain such incredible skills?

Really coming along well,even though it's a ways off I can't wait to see all of them done.They will be an impressive site all arrayed together,standing shoulder to shoulder as they face an alien menace(conjures up a cool image right?).Well anyway,keep up the good work!

This is one amazing log so far, stunning work and it's good to see the Space Hulk models getting some serious justice done to them. Keep up it because I'm hooked. :D

I'm speechless, the work you have showcased so far is impressive, amazing from head to toe on each model and collectively they look amazing. I can't wait for more to join the trio as it's a team that is shaping up to be of epic perfection.

Your blending skills are great, i love how the red flows well over the whole model and the gold edges it in such a way as to complement rather then contrast, a really stunning paint job all round.

Holy hell. Even though you are using a guide your painting skills are incredible. Really kicking myself for not getting a Space Hulk box now, and i don't even play the 40k version. (I know it's Space Hulk not 40k, but they are linked.)

Really well done.

Absolutely amazing, do you use a finish at all on there guys? they look very solid and sleak, if you do use one what is it? because it's obviously doing it's job very well.

Love the squad shot, can't wait for the second one. As for the two new members love the heavy flamer, looks epic and the work done on the scripts and gems is amazing, really sweet stuff man.

ok after a little break here my first Genestealer.
Because there is no good tutorial (like the one for the BA in the WD) i did my best. Hope you like the result. I will write a tutorial similar to the one in the WD about my Genestealers in the near future.

First off, those Termies are stunning, simply stunning! and the Genestealer carries on that tradition. You are one damn talented painter!!

These are some awesome Blood Angels. Everytime I see Blood Angels painted so well I always get inspired to try and paint some of my own...but they never turn out as I plan. These are great though, I can't wait to see some more of the genestealers.

These are brilliant, im painting marines at the moment and im using the guide from WD but these look way better than mine! that stealer looks wicked too, love the old school stealer colours.

Just to let you know, there is a genestealer painting guide on the games workshop site under Astronomicon in september

VanSan
19-12-2009, 10:28
Thanks, but i knew this tutorial. The problem is that in my opinion the quality is far away from the Masterclass article in the WD.
