Hi!

I want to motivate myself,that's why i started this topic.There is (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20449) my finished marine stuff.What i've already done:
Clean a lot of marines,plus a lot of Cc arm pairs:
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/CC.jpg
I have to drill out the bolt pistols,but it's an easy thing to do.I want to do loincloths to all of my cc marines like this (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20290) one.I bought a sculpting tool to do this easier.I don't want to assamble any of my marines without minor conversions.

I decided to made some leg repositions.Here's a leg which one is cut and drilled.But unfortunetly i haven't found wire at home :cries: ,so i have to keep on searching.

One of my friend give these:
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/plasma.jpg
I know these are chaos plasma guns,but i think there is nothing in thise guns which shows "this belongs to chaos",so i have enough plasma guns for my tactical squads.

I will keep posting!

After i drill all of the bolt pistols i've found an other bp/ccw arm...

I want to make my marines all unique so here is my first try:

Sorry for the bad pic,i can take a batter only tomorrow.This one's are my first try with GS.

I like the arrows on the powerpacks. I assume those will be for squad designation, and will change based on Tactical/Assault/Devestator? If so, quite an interesting way to do it, and a nice little change.

That is a pretty awesome idea, actually. Very nice!

Very unique, very interesting idea!

With regards to the loincloths, it will take some time to get used to making them - and I'd recommend using a slightly thicker piece of GS at first, then as you get more skilled with it you can begin to use less and less.

Also, don't forget to arrange them to complement your model's pose!

Best of luck, major_panic

Tussky

Kotobuki : I only give it to my tactical marines.
major_panic : Thanks for the advices!

I try to reposition of the legs,but it's *********** hard for me :cries: and i haven't found a good tutorial.I think that i not do other repositions...

Ok 3 legs are almost done,no pics,maybe tomorrow.(I have to finish my terrain project for tomorrow)

Tussky
02-02-2006, 12:51
I think today i glue the torsos together.I got a horrible headache and i can't do anything with this...

On the otherhand yesterday i finished the terrain,but i didn't make pictures.I ask one of my friends to do that.If i got them i will post pics.

With this standard kept throughout entire army you have big chances of winning EE GT best painted 40k army. Your blue scheme is better to the green original.

I don't know the name of the owner of this army,but as i see in the GT all of his marines,deamons etc. are converted.I think this quality is hard to beat.

Well, at least you did drill your bolters:D . I have been making my opinion on the quality of 40k armies (fantasy are far better represented) at polish GD tournament. Haven't got time to pop in during EE GT. Nevertheless, your painting is not far behind and with proper attention to detail you might win:evilgrin: .
Here is a Making Kneeling Models tutorial (http://www.dysartes.com/model/modelling/kneeling.php) by Dysartes. Might be helpful for you. If you find on the net anything on making it with Marines do post a link.

Tussky
02-02-2006, 16:43
Great link!I will try it.Now the torsos are glued together.Tomorrow i will make some GS work on them.I don't know what can i convert on them,but i will search the net for ideas.

What do you think are the poses are correct ?I think i must make the standing legs straighter.

t-tauri
03-02-2006, 15:21
I'd agree with making the supporting leg straighter. They look as if they're falling over from an explosion behind them.
If the supporting leg's that bent the other one should be moving forward ready for the next step.

The two upright ones look good.

Tussky
05-02-2006, 12:57
3 runing leg reposition done,i just start to do 2 more.After i finish them i start to fill the gaps with GS,and than comes the loincloths.

ZAChos
05-02-2006, 14:38
put the torso's at angles to the legs. When someones running they don't run straight forward with shoulders parallel to hips, they move their torso from side to side.

village idiot
05-02-2006, 14:51
The first dude looks superb, really dynamic, especially the second picture of him.

For the second guy, i would rotate hist torso a bit and maybe lift the bolt pistol arm a bit.

The third guy looks a bit odd to me, like he's squatting, but running at the same time, it's weird, not too sure what to do wth him though.

Well done so far, they do look great.

Tussky
06-02-2006, 11:45
Thanks for the advices!

Last night i make 4 of these:
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/crater2.jpghttp://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/crater.jpg
The pics are not the best.I'm sad a little because it's impossible to fit big squads to it... But it will looks good on the battlefield.I will add some static grass to it,to make them better.
Later i will post pics from the runing legs.

5 legs done,half of the gaps are filled.I think tomorrow i will done them all.

Ok,i fill some more gaps,almost done,almost... I think these 5 legs will be filled at next week completly.

On the otherhand i buy some BFG eldar ships:4 blister Acognite Frigates,3 blister Hemlock Destroyers,4 blister Nightshade Destroyers and 2 blister Shadow Cruiser for 38GBP (orginal price for this stuff is 86GBP).I think it was cheap.

Tussky
19-02-2006, 12:08
Ok things are going slow,very slow.About the legs i dont finished them yet. :(

Atleast the backpacks are primmed,i want to finish them until next weekend.

About the BFG stuff : I think i will make an other topic to that,but i really don't know what colors i want to use for them.First i want to use space wolf grey and blood red (same as in the pics of the online store),but i don't find it too original.
So the plan for them is deadflesh:white 1:1 base color and Foul green for the sail.Maybe the base color become scorpion green...

Tussky
23-02-2006, 15:28
Yesterday i gave base color for the backpacks and most of thea areas which were become metalic i painted black.At the weekend i will post pics and start to paint really.

Tussky
07-03-2006, 18:02
After a long break,i start to paint again today.Base color are given to all backpacks and some metalic details are done.
I made the break,becaus i was ill for about a week,and there was a 40kin40min tour,where i took 2nd place.

Long time no pics:mad: !

I am mostly interested in this thread, as i intend to pop to EE GT to see it in real life. Not a tournament gamer myself, but to see some of Warseer's best minis (I am talking in mortals cathegory, as such of Razza or DV8 are never to be achived by most of us). Certainly your minis, or Buenors or Deadleys are rolemodels for my grot cathegory painting skills.
You have the advantage of coming with it to my city over the other guys! So do not be so lazy and show us your progres.

Next Wednesday i've got a math analysis exam,but after that i will post pics from the backpacks and i like to start one of the 6man tactical squads.I decide i won't do any reposition on my normal shooty squads.I just convert the bolters.

I promise pics,so here is the backpacks:
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/wsbackpacks.jpg

Only base colors are done.Sorry for the bad pics,but there isn't too much light here (this one is the second reason i don't paint,because i don't see the details, an other is my brushes are in horrible state and the new one's aren't arrived.)

Ok today i've got a little time and i force myself to do something.So i convert 4 bolters for the second shooty squad.

Tussky
22-03-2006, 11:44
Here are the bolters:

Tussky
26-03-2006, 10:28
Yesterday i primed the 7 remaining marines of the 2 shooty squad.Bases are also painted to black only need to drybrush and add some grass to them.

Ok base color are done.Parts which were become metalic are painted black.I can't take any good pics,so no pics today.I can't work too precise because most of my old brushes are in horrible stat,i think paint with these create me some more work (correct lines/etc).I won't start to paint highlights with these ones,i will wait until the new ones are arrive.

Tomorrow i will done the metalic drybrush and correct some misspaint.

I'am thinking on that i will paint the heavy weapon backpacks black,because it will brake the homogenity of the color of the marines.What do you think ?

27-03-2006, 19:33
Metallic parts are done,mispaints almost corrected.I think i will post pics at the weekend.I just want to focus on painting.

I promise i will post pics tomorrow after finishing off the purity seals.I have to notice that my most problem is my painting speed,i'am too slow or not but that what i feel.An other big problem is that the paint is abrade from my minis at an awsome speed.If i fon't know i paint this color then i think they were white...

Today i correct some mispaints and i almost done the purity seals.

29-03-2006, 14:44
they are good, especially the purity seals, but to me, the armour lacks depth, as in, it seems to be just one block colour on the armour, no highlights or shades. But the weathering also looks good.

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/base.jpg

Ok today (06.04.12) 2 layers of highlight are done for 5 models,and 1 layer for the remaining 2.I would like to finish the bases and bodys at the weekend.

An other update (04.19) Second highlight are done,and the third done for 4 models.I start to clean the chaplain, (he's a new one with the skull helmet/shoulderpad :D ) but i don't have enough patience to finish him off.

Tussky
24-04-2006, 20:56
I won't convert legs.It's too hard for me and require too much time and the result is awful.So i drop this idea.

Here is a vet.sergeant with converted fist.What do you think about the fist ? Does it looks good ?

Actually i use bluetak to put it up,so i think if i glue it on there will be no space between the crux and the fist.

Looks good! The only thing I'd recommend is pulling the loincloth away from the belt a bit, and bringing the little delta in the centre lower down. To do so, just use a toothpick or something small to GENTLY pull down...

You could also make the small bits where it's attached to the belt smaller, but that's just being nitpicky. Good job!

My problem with the loincloth is the color.I can't decide which color looks good for it.I think light grey (such as the inside of the rhino) will looks good.

Dirty white cloth. Of white colour, starting with bubonic brown and highlighting it with a mix of basecoat and white (gradually increasing the amount of white in the following stages). Odd stains or shading with fleshwas would also be helpful.

Finally my orders are arrived,but I'am not happy.I show you why:
I order 3 box of SM stuff:tactical squad,predator,whirlwind.I open the tactical box and that what i see:

Some bits are simply not on the sprue ... I hope the shop will change this box for an other.

Next the whirlwind: Just one piece miss from the box,but one of my friend sad he has 5 of this,so there is no problem.The predator box was perfect anything what is on the paper is in the box.

I don't know who had box like this,but i think this is a bit embarrassing,if you pay money for a stuff like this.

shame about those sprues, but GW are normally really good if you return them, you may be lucky and they will give you some free stuff as well as new sprues.

If you still want a tutorial on leg joints there is one in this thread

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/currentstate.jpg

Sorry for the bad pics.I have to correct some blacklining and correct the chest eagles.I hope tomorrow I will finish the bodys and 5 backpacks.The remaining 2 marine will be equiped with lascannons.

And here's the test scheme of my eldar BFG fleet.I know there are mold lines,but it's almost impossible to clear out those line witout destroy the details of the ship.I don't want a too complicated scheme with a hard scheme,so i use drybrush on the body.Only the sails and the red parts painted.The main body is done by drybrush.

Why don't you post any of this stuff on our Hungarian forum? It really looks awesome! I'd love to stomp these Marines with my Orks :evilgrin: :D
Keep it up and show us mooooooooooooooooooooore. :p

Oh and about your quality......or should I say "Tesco Value Space Marines", well....it's a really sad thing....Everyone likes seeing nicely painted armies but with these models you don't even have the chance to make them look nice....a shame.
Hope it will turn out all right.

The minis look great. My only small concern is that the lascannons and backpack look a bit like one piece. Maybe if you painted the cables in different colours that could do the trick and liven the models up a bit.
Nevertheless, they look great and I can't wait to see them live at EE GT.

Could you please post an army group shot of what you have?

The minis look great. My only small concern is that the lascannons and backpack look a bit like one piece. Maybe if you painted the cables in different colours that could do the trick and liven the models up a bit.
Nevertheless, they look great and I can't wait to see them live at EE GT.

Could you please post an army group shot of what you have?

After I've finish the remaning 5 marines yes :)

It might be that I don't have up-to-date info about you Army's status so,

-If it is that case I'd love to see all you have in one picture,
-If it's not that case then you'll better hurry!

Nevertheless, Great Minis:D

Ressurection.

Finally I've finished my "Comprehensive examination in Mathematics" exam,so I'am free for almost a month.So I restart to paint tomorrow.The first las/plas tactical squad almost finished,only the markings and one head to do.I hope tomorrow I will finish them at all.I promise pics will be posted tomorrow.

On the other hand I need your help mates!I have to decide what color the loincloths will be,but I can't...

In my mind the black and red colors pop up,but I can't figure out which one will be better or a third would be better ?

glad to see your gonna start these guys again, for the loincloth's i think i would go for white shaded with shadow grey through space wolf grey to pure white. the reason i say this is IMO red would just be too much of a contrast black might work, but i think white would go well as they would tie in with your shoulder pads.

Tussky
18-01-2007, 09:50
Yes red might be too much.My only problem with the white -> hard to paint well.Do you think Shadow grey will be to dark white a mix of 1:1 with white ?

Ok.Here are the final pics.If anyone notice some flaws than please comment!Anyway:

18-01-2007, 18:09
these are very nice mate.

for the loincloths if you start with shadow grey you then need to layer up through space wolf grey and then with white at the end. only leave shadow grey in the deepest recces's.

Yeah I think so.What about purple.It's looks well on the power fist.Maybe on the loincloths as well.Easier to paint.But yes white would be looks much better.

19-01-2007, 00:55
Maybe white with a purple symbol?

Im glad this thread is back, I LOVE these marines...really clean and nicely finished.

Ditch the red photo backdrop, use a 30 percent gray if you want something besides white :)

19-01-2007, 01:18
I love the color scheme, and the highlighting looks awesome on that blue. I also enjoyed the Lascannon-Marines; great work!

Would love to see some "armor" if you plan on rolling any out... :D

Tussky
19-01-2007, 11:32
Thanks!

FearFrost:I may burrow your wraithguards loincloth idea :) Can you PM your recipe ?

The main problem with the loincloths is their surface isn't perfectly flat,because I'am not a great GS artist.That's why I think the darker color will hide those flaws,maybe not.

The_Flip:Armour will rolling out,at least 2 rhinos,predator and a whirlwind.

Yesterday I did some freehand on the old bolter marines and I create the plasma gunner for the second shooty tactical.Here he is:

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/plasmaguner_glued.jpg

I think his chest plate is too flat.Maybe some freehand on it will help,but don't know what to paint on it.

Today no more updates,because I have some other things to do.Comments are welcome!

Hi!

Ok,I think I would go with white.I think I should order space wolf grey for it.Maybe white cloth with black flames ? I didn't want to paint the chapter symbol on the loincloths.

Today I continue the repainting of the old bolter marines.I did the freehands and repaint the purity seals as well.There are a lot of flaws on them,because I forget to varnish them :( So I have a lot of thing to do.But anyway I will finish them off on monday.Because tomorrow I go to play some airsoft :) I think I put some marine together and do make some loincloths at the afternoon.

HiredSword.
20-01-2007, 19:27
flames would look good, but simply just a black horizontal line at the bottom would do it as well. Is there anything that would fit the fluff for your chapter?

it's alright, it looks like he's peering around a corner although he's leaning the wrong way on his legs. If you could fine some legs so he's leaning more to his right it may work better, but i wouldn't worry too much if you just decided to go with it.

Here they are:

Only some clean up to do in the metal areas and some white correction and they are done.After I finish them I will varinsh these guys and those I posted eariler.

I was thinking about a devastator squad with 7 man with 4 HB + I want to attach them a techmarine with storm bolter or with standard bolter.A re-roll is always good,plus if the squad is in trouble the techmarine can jump out and charge while the dev squad runs back.

Are those Marines playing a bloody 40k version of Sudoku :evilgrin:?

Yeah, sure :D I've got a similar post on the hungarian forum,damn background :o

Well,metal parts done,but whites aren't... I just get bored while painting the metal areas again.

Plan for tomorrow:After the clean up and the varnish I move on the assault squad and do the same things : paint squad and chapter badges,repaint the flaws,finally I repaint the face of the marine with blue hair.I just not satisfied with it.

Tussky
23-01-2007, 13:12
The first layer of varnish was given to them.I will ad an other one,but after my small break I move on the assault squad.

I repainted the assault marine face,I think the differenc is great,even the pics are crap.The teeth and eyes will be done tomorrow.
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/face.jpghttp://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b360/Tussky/project%20Warsaw/face2.jpg

Sadly the weather is become worse and worse so not too much natural lighting and I hate to paint under the lamp.Even with the sun light blubs...

So I varnish again and continue to build some CC marines.

Woops!I didn't notice it yet.But I will clean it.

Yesterday I've got a little job to do,so I didn't have to for the hobby.Today I just cut down 2 rhinos.I've got 2 kits of extra armour,but the side doors didn't fit in :confused: :eek: :wtf: So I have to figure something out what to do.Anyway I get bored again while painting the old marines again so I think I will move on the rhinos.After this I will repaint the assault squad or they will be the last pice of the army which will be done.

Today I've got a commision to paint a marine!At the same scheme as Spikyjames Sons of Proteus army.I worry about a bit,I'am a slow (ok a really really slow) painter,and I have to paint an other marine "army" (If I got that comission) than the topic will be slow down.On the other hand that won't be a full marine army,just a small expansion for DH/IG army maybe two squad of tactical marines and no more.

Sure, I will.But the client can't decide that he want a regular bolter marine or a vet sergeant with some stuff.So I will build a bolter marine maybe.

Ah,I always have something else to do,so no update this time. :( I try to fit in the doors,but I can't.I realised that I've got a predator extra armour and what do you think ? Yes,the doors don't fit in.What a shame,so I think I will leave those parts out and build the rhinos without this side armours.

Tussky
27-01-2007, 21:04
Today I've got an other real comission to build a DA marine with any extras I can.I will add him a loincloth,pw and bp maybe combat shield and a pre-heresy shoulder pad (Which shoulder I should place the pre-heresy pad ?I never know this :o )

So what do you think is 3.84 GBP (=5.84 Euro) is a correct deal for it ?

I will post this commision pics.Tomorrow I will do the GS things on him.

Today I almost finish one member of the assault squad.I just try to use Spiky's method so I paint one marine at the time and not a block of them.It's looks better a bit.

Oh and I play against the new eldar from 800points wih patrol rules.I lose.I just don't notice this is the _new_ eldar codex.He has got a lot of scatter lasers and shuriken cannons,I can't deal with him,but better luck next time.Scorpions become awsome in CC...

Looking great, man! The sculpting is excellent.

Personaly, I prefer pose nr. 1, but it took some pondering;) . Reason is that the way the tabard is shaped it fits pose nr. 1 better than pose nr. 2, IMO. Also, pose nr. 1 looks really dynamic.

Tussky
05-02-2007, 21:14

Well,128points left for my 2000point list and I decide to include a veteran squad with infiltrate.So with 6 veteran I've got 20 points to spend.

The two variation is : power weapon+heavy bolter or plasma gun+multi-melta (yes multi-melta!).The others will have bolter.It's become a decoy unit.I'am sad because I can't include the pw+mm combo :(

It can be ignored,but it become a threat anyway.

What do you think ?

hiveminion
23-02-2007, 19:12
Veterans! Good choice, I love Veterans! I'd say do the Plasma Gun/Multi-Melta combo, great when Infiltrating since you can pop some Side/Rear armour.

Will you be converting the Veterans from the box or just "bling" some standard Marines?

They will be normal marines,I will add some battle damage to them.Anyway I want to paint them a bit different from my scheme,but I don't know how.They will have white helmets.

What do you think should I add banner to my tactical veteran sergeants or not ?

hiveminion
25-02-2007, 17:08
If you think it looks good, go for it. I give my sergeants back banners (and I can't even paint them properly;) .

For a different scheme for the Vets, why not reverse the one you've got: white armour and blue shoulder guards? It ties them in with the rest of the army but still sets them apart from the regular grunts.

Tussky
26-02-2007, 09:58
Hmm,First I want to paint their complete shoulder pad white,but I think this is a good idea!Maybe they get a full white armour.Which sounds good,but after I paint some white loincloths I decide.White is hard to paint,but I love to see some white marines in my army.

Anyway here are some pics:

Summary:

I just build the stuff when I've got time for the hobby.

About the EE GT,this project is fail again :( but I will visit the GT with the Hungarian team,so If someone want to see some minis than I may transport the stuff.

About the redux I've got a really bad feeling about this thing.I fear a bit,because I think they will make some changes in the trait system.I mean that I may not select the Take the fight to them with cleanse and purify,so the cc tactical squads become the last part of the army which will be done.If this happen than my whole army plan messed up.

I start to make plans if this trait things become true.Than I will change for the dev's for elite trait and I will take a lot of ML dev squads with tank hunter skill and forget dreads for ever.Anyway things will change before the army can be done.

Finally 2 pics:

Yes I suffer from the same weakness.I've got 6 legs cut in pieces but I can't build them up again :(
