Thansk Deadley! That means alot coming from yourself!

Captain; Nice man! Can't wait to see that one! Well I didn't get black spray paint, so I have to wait till Tuesday now. But I will be doing the Deathwing still. I'll get some work done after dinner.

Astador=jobless but I still have my first 50 DKoK, so we're going to be seeing alot more work after tonight, since I have nothing else to do while I look for new jobs!

Well buisness has been bad for awhile now. We changed the product we sold hoping we could manage to have alot better buisness, but we had worse. So now we are closing up tomorrow night. I got a few extra hours tomorrow during the day and I come back tomorrow night to collect my check and help lad the car with whats left of the product and our cunputer and other stuff. I have already started looking for a new job, but it will be atleast a week before I get a call back for an interview form any of the places. I have a fall back job that a family friend can get me where I'll make $8 an hour plus bonus' but I really want to stay working in the mall. If I don't get a call back after two weeks I'm going to apply there. I had turned down a few job overs at the beggining on December thinking we would stay open longer than we are.

OK well now that I am restocked on spray paint and no longer employed after 4 PM today, I am setting a goal for painting this weekend. Today after I cash my check I will run up to Hobby Town and pick up more supplies. A Hellhound for my DKoK and another box of Assault Marines more than likely, or more tactical marines. Tonight I will finish painting the first 10 DKoK and start the second 10, while Assembling the third set of 10. With both of the command squads done then, I will have 1 Senior Command, 1 Junior Command, and 2 Plattoons of Infantry. Once they are done I will finish assembling my Dark Angels army and prime the first squad. While they dry, I will start assembling the 20 DKoK firing. Hopefully I will find a Commissar Yarrick to act as my Senior Officer, and someone else to be my Junior Officer. We'll see what I dig up at two different shops today.

Good man, put that time off to good use. Good luck, with modeling and with job hunting.

Thanks man! Well I have plenty of applications to turn in, so when I get off, I'll drop those off((all are in the mall save one which is across the street from Hobby Town)), cash my check and go hunt down a Leman Russ and Hellhound at the two local stores! lol Not sure which to take against Orks, so I plan on taking both.

What happened to the christmas paintathon? No pics yet? Everything sounds good but we have no evidence. More more more!

Astador
28-12-2006, 18:41
No sadly I didn't have the time! My dad and stepmom forced family time on me. I'll be sure to take plenty of pics when I get off in 2 hours though! I'm not sure what to do with my DW. I don't feel like painting them preheresy colors, and I don't know how good the bone will look. Any chapter suggestions?

Scorpio
28-12-2006, 23:53
You could make them the first company of pretty much any chapter. And i know what you mean about family time. Well happy new year and all that jazz now back to work! Sorry about you losing your job man but it sounds like you'll have one soon enough.

-Scorpio

Astador
29-12-2006, 01:56
Haha I know! I just can't figure out which chapter! lol

Yeah thanks man! I have a couple of ins in a few shops that I can work. Happy New Years to you too! ok I'm back to work. Going to prime the 16 DKoK I have built.

Astador
29-12-2006, 04:35

Well i haven't really been on warseer much in the past 2 weeks. Time to get back and support all of ya. I can't wait for some more pics of the painted DKoK.

The colouring on page 12 is very nice. I neva have thought of getting other pics and colouring them in. Keep up the good work!

Astador
29-12-2006, 05:10
Hey thanks for the comments mate! Well I am still working on assembling all the Dark Angels. It is a pain in the ass let me tell you!

liamrob
29-12-2006, 05:27
Well the condition of ur bedroom isn't the best but i see you got plenty of bitz =p

I can't wait for another year for when i get a job. Then i can finally get the paints when i run out or get the models when i need some more.

I hope the DA are as good as ur models earlier on.

Althanan
29-12-2006, 05:50
Heh, I think the TV in my room is the same as yours, given the remote.

And I think that, somehow, someway, my veritable pit of a room is actually cleaner than yours ATM ;)

Anyhoo, you've done some nice work in the past... now get cracking on more painting! :P

Astador
29-12-2006, 05:59
Haha thanks for the comments guys! I love my TV for Xmas I got a Xbox 360 so I moved my Xbox in here. Haha long hard work with Halo2 on Xbox Live breaks! lol

I'm about to go to sleep. I'll prime everything tomorrow.

liamrob
29-12-2006, 06:16
IMO i recon halo and halo 2 are the best xbox live games even though i haven't played it on xbox live :( i don't have it. But one of me mates plays on live all da time i think.

I wish i even had a TV in ma room and allowed to have my xbox in there. Someday i will =p. Can't wait for the pics.

Astador
29-12-2006, 06:19
Haha well I lucked out on the TV. Its a two bedroom apartment so my brother shares the room. He got a Gamecube for his birthday one year, and to go with it, we both got the nice tv we have now! lol So tomorrow I plan on buying The Faint cd and then coming home and working on my models. I need my Agenda Suicide, Worked up so Sexual, and Erection going on repeat while I work! I recommend them! They are amazing songs from an amazing band.

liamrob
29-12-2006, 06:28
I prefer to go with system of a down, Mudvayne, Slipknot, metallica if ur a rock type of person. I prefer fast beats or real catchy tunes. I've neva heard of those ones u mentioned =p

I used to share a bedroom with my bro but now hes got my dads old one cause ma dad works in da country now. So we see him every weekend but its fine with me i get a whole bedroom to myself. Downside is i don't get to see dad everyday. Oh well life goes on.

Astador
29-12-2006, 06:32
well I rarely see my dad, but thats by choice. I abuse his camera when I do see him. I don't like him or my stepmom.
Anyway, I love The Faint, but I do tend to listen to hardcore music or techno while I paint. Any background noise works for me.

liamrob
29-12-2006, 06:38
You gotta get used to everyone in life =p

I rarely listen to music when i'm painting. Mainly cause there is no radio near my painting table.

Well night then. I hope u get some good painting done tomorrow.

Astador
29-12-2006, 06:43
Thanks night to all yall too!

29-12-2006, 06:59
hey there astador, i just thought id check in and see how your flesheaters/tearers were coming along...though it doesnt seem to be. however, id like to see you get to work on those death korps : D

as for music, i must listen to it while i paint, it motivates me. however, i generally listen to goth/industrial/ebm, stuff like velvet acid christ, hocico, skinny puppy, amduscia, god module, vnv nation, funker vogt, specimen, sex gang children, clan of xymox, sisters of mercy

stuff like that, either way though, music is a handy motivater

Astador
29-12-2006, 16:54
Well I did finish them, I just haven't been able to get a good picture. I'll try. I got new sealer, so I can finally seal them so they don't get damaged! More work in abit, I just woke up.

chuckyhol
29-12-2006, 17:05
How do you abuse a camera? On second thoughts, I don't even wanna know. Young people these days...:)

Astador
29-12-2006, 17:17
Well I take a hell of alot of pictures, but yall only see the good ones. And thats is the only real reason I go to my dads. Since they kind of took my good camera, said it was there and are charging me a minimum of $200 to get it looked at and see whats wrong with it just so they can keep it.

Captain_Wolverine
29-12-2006, 17:37
well i say once u get a new job save up get a new camera and then you only have to deal with your father when u want too

Astador
29-12-2006, 17:40
Thats the plan! lol I've been looking at cameras as well, so I shall be getting one soon! Hmm I am unsure what to aquire today when I go up to the hobby store.

yeah, i found that, now i have an ipod, last night i was painting from 12am to 5 am - honestly! just listenign to the Hives, Kasabian, Snow Patrol, razorlight etc didn't move until i looked at the time. anyway, don't worry about messy room, who cares - except the family living under your magazines ;)

anyway, you have far more to paint than me, so i am now happy - keep up the good work :)

SC

Astador
29-12-2006, 19:23
Thanks man! Yeah I still haven't left or painted! I finished assembling the 80+ marines on the desk though! And then got buried under job applications. Bought to take a shower and leave, I'll be back later to do more work though!

Keep the comments coming!

Scorpio
29-12-2006, 21:39

I'm about to go to sleep. I'll prime everything tomorrow.

I know what you mean. I got my 360 a year ago but didnt get live until this chrsitmas. But for me its been Gears of War breaks.:D

Well everythings looking good. Try not to play too much live we want to see some minis before next year;)

Astador
30-12-2006, 01:55
Haha don't worry I haven't played it since I moved it into my room! I bought a hellhound today. Need ideas on how to convert it! I hate the metal turret and want to replace as much of it as I can with plastic. Any ideas?

Scorpio
30-12-2006, 03:03
Do you still want to use it as a hellhound? If so just find like a predator turret and take a heavy flamer or such and glue it on instead of the main gun. Or just kit bash the turret if you dont really care what it is.

-Scorpio

Astador
30-12-2006, 03:16
Well I want it to be a Hellhound, give the orks abit of a run for their money. I'm definatly going to try and make it look like a flamer, otherwise, idk what I'm going to do.

Astador
30-12-2006, 06:03
Ok well progress report. I ran out of glue and I ran out of batteries on the camera. So now pics of the now almost done first squad of advancing Death Korps.

Astador
31-12-2006, 02:28
Ok well after much pain and much glue sticking to my fingers, I finished assembling the Hellhound and the Sentinel, all he needs is the top hatch glued on once it is painted.
Anyway, onto the pictures.

31-12-2006, 04:33
The sentinels base looks awesome man. I like the sand bags on the hellhound too. Great job all in all now lets see some paint!

-Scorpio

Astador
31-12-2006, 05:48
Thanks! Busy playing halo with a big group so I won't paint till later. but will get much work done!

Althanan
31-12-2006, 05:55
I like the Sentinel mate, nice work on the base!

Astador
31-12-2006, 06:13
Thanks! Well while I wait for the stupid map pack to load(trying to fix about a dozen maps that won't load) I am priming the second squad, the Hellhound, and the Sentinel.

Althanan
31-12-2006, 06:19
Painting is always good :)

As long as you have a minute, I wouldn't mind getting your opinion on my project log... link in sig. You seem to have opinions that I agree with more often than not.

Astador
31-12-2006, 06:49
Alright, I shall take a look as long as you keep looking here and commenting! lol Actually I have previously looked at your log, but don't remember it! lol

Althanan
31-12-2006, 07:03
Worry not, I've been subscribed to your log since not long after it started :) It's been a trip watching a lot of this stuff develop.

schoolcormorant
31-12-2006, 11:15
i like the pose on the sentinel. though nowadays i don't build armour pieces fully, it makes them easier to paint then build afterwards.
looking good - get to painting!

SC

Astador
31-12-2006, 16:50
Alright well the Sentinel is primed, as is the hellhound. I just need to finish priming the second squad. Well I just woke up, so once I eat, then I shall get back to work!

Astador
01-01-2007, 05:13
Well my New Years has been slow, aside from playing Halo all day all I truly got done was setting up my Office Live account and the following pics.

01-01-2007, 16:42
It appears I am past due on paying my respects.:evilgrin: So far the krieg are looking good. What did you use to create the sand bags? GS is just far too expensive for those kind of items.

Astador
01-01-2007, 16:50
Bought a 5 dollar kit from Tamiya. Its a sand bag set, 1/35 scale.
Thanks for the comments!

Scorpio

01-01-2007, 23:04
hit it um man. armedUNDEROATH like the band. Haha, bet you can't man. I own! lol

Haha I didn't get sucked in anyway. I got more work done on the Hellhound and Sentinel. Once I weather them, I'll post some pics. I am repairing some members of the first squad. As I said in Deadley's thread, my brothers baseball glove brought demise to two members.

Yup mate, dead marine hung from the ruins.

For one of my next armies I want to do a stealth/sneaky guerilla war tactics army using this as a kind of insperation/saying.
"we stay here tonight don't let them find us or we're dead"

Just to prove I am not getting tied up in live, here is a WIP of the Hellhound

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b195/Golden_Palace/Army%20log/Death%20Korps/umm931.jpg

The weathering is far from complete.

Astador
03-01-2007, 02:10
Ok well for the most part the Hellhound and Sentinel are done. Some bad pics using flash. They look better irl. Now all I need to do is touch them up abit and call them done. I'll be getting a Leman Russ before the game Saturday, so that should be the next project.

Althanan
03-01-2007, 07:12
Well apparently the post I made earlier got eaten...

Sentinel looks really nice, the paintjob turned out great! Cockpit armour looks funny though, like it's not quite sitting right. I wouldn't blame you if it isn't though, that metal cockpit is a pain to put together...

Astador
03-01-2007, 16:46
Aye, the cockpit doesn't sit right. I filed and shaved both sides, and it still sat wrong, so I just gave up. I figure I'll fix it on the next setinel.

Thanks for the comments, before bed last night I sealed the first 10 DKoK, the Sentinel, and the Hellhound.

Astador
05-01-2007, 01:51
Small update with no pics yet.

I bought a Leman Russ and a Commissar Yarrick(used as Senior Officer) tonight. I'm going to begin working on them. I need to come up with something for my tanks, perhaps put Krieg somewhere on them? Well I need some input on that, so let me know. I'll be back in abit with pictures of the Leman Russ as I work on it.

not the end of the world.

I see you are keeping busy. Nice looking IG there. Fear not the milk damage save the art portfolio. You can try to scan those that didn't run before they wrinkle and smell.

Astador
05-01-2007, 16:10
Heh The sprues will live but the boxes and portfolio are gone. Lucking the sprues took splatter, the portfolio took the brunt. But I shall live. Anyway, today its back to work, I have 20 DKoK Primed along with my Senior Officer, and I will finish the Leman Russ and begin painting it as well.

Astador
05-01-2007, 18:33

Ok guys, so heres the deal. I'm a Dj and I've been recording my second cd for 6 months. If yall keep me inspired and working on my models and my music, I'll send you a free copy when I release it. So keep me working hard and help me stay inspired to keep mixing.

06-01-2007, 18:49
wow a bribe - nice - am i included?!

the only thing that hits me striaght away is that it's a little shiny, as is the marine on the base - what chapter btw?
had you thought of getting some dullcote to go on top of the gloss?

any pics of the russ you mentiones (somewhere else, can't remember where)
you posted before i finished typing damn you
SC
christmas is over!

Astador
06-01-2007, 18:51
Haha I knew you were replying when I posted the pics.

Yeah, I used a Dull Coat, but it turned gloss, so I might go pick up a can of testors dullcoat today.

Yes your included in my bribe mate! This is my second cd and I've been recording for 6 months now with only 4 songs done.

Marine on the base is a Blood Angel I suppose. I just started painting red and then thats how he turned out! lol

nice :)

as for the dullcoat, i ordered a can from barrule, i'd post a link but theres no point because they can't ship pressurised cans overseas (look up pistachio nuts too, they're classed as an explosive substance - thats SC's really rubbish and irrelevant fact of 2007, don't be expecting more).
for the blood angel, add a transfer, just break up the red a little, it should be ok over the varnish if you apply it and keep it wet for a bit, just have it on side and ocassionally saturate it with a wet brush then leave to dry.

SC

Astador
06-01-2007, 19:01
Thanks, I'm actually going to freehand it and reseal the freehand.

As for the pistachio that is sig worthy! lol

schoolcormorant
06-01-2007, 19:04
(this is turning into a message service but)

if freehanding the icon, you need to water down your paints BUT that'll make it more dfficult. so a suggestion from WD was, water down black with black ink to make it 'runnier' and keep the pigment strong, i do it for purity seal script where going over the writing again will inevitable make a mess. :)

Well i hope the CDs are good. I can't be bothered going back through the few pages so i'll say again good dam work! The senior officer looks a bit scratched or is that the flash? The leman russ looks awesome. I might have to get my hands on one.

Darn school is back in 3 weeks. NOO!!! Well i we get to see more pics soon.

Astador
07-01-2007, 03:29
Well astleast you have 3 more weeks mate. I go back on Monday, which means my work will most likely be halved? lol

Nope just flash, and gloss. lol He looks alot better irl. The Russ is awsome! I hate the side sponsons, but it is worth it for what it does!

liamrob
07-01-2007, 03:48
Well finally after shutting everything else down and rebooting comp my internet is a bit faster. I'm on dialup at the moment. Got any ideas for a good model and one that is a technical one :p on the cheaper side to or i might look into a regiment or squad of something.

You should enter the golden demon next year. I might think of it to. I'm just finding a model to enter.

Poor astador has to go back on Monday what a bummer :( Well i hope u can still get a lot of pics for us. I got the Jan white dwarf yesterday and dark angels are coming out 7th of march 2007 instead of sometime in February. I guess i can wait though.

Keep up the good work.

Astador
07-01-2007, 03:55
Well luckily for me! I am ordering the box advance order in the UK and having it shipped here! lol I know Icheat! lol I should get the box 2 weeks before release.

As for Golden Demon, I plan on returning to Chicago GT and GD this summer. I posted my '05 entry earlier in the thread.

Btw i started drawing some SM but i spilt my coke on one of the pics so i threw it out. Btw its my first drawing piece just about for hmm 2yrs + :p

I will have to post. Can u do some unique poses cause i wanna convert some of my marines. Your art isn't the best like the GW artists but i love it cause is better than mine :)

Astador
07-01-2007, 05:52
Yeah I can probably do it, just let me know what kind of pose! lol If not, I can do an outline without armour just a form for you.

Hope you like my vid. Make sure you turn up the speakers! lol

07-01-2007, 06:00
Ok i will turn up the speakers.

I'm after a pose for a sgt of a shooty bolter squad. I need some ideas on how i can put some more marines together. I also need some ideas for iconography on a rhino from the battleforce i order from bwbits.

I hope I'm included in the bribery as well ;) What kind of techno/electronica do you mix, anyhow? Dance, Trance, Industrial, Mixer, or something else?

Shame about the portfolio, but at least the sprues are OK :D What happened, exactly?

It'll be interesting to see what you do with Yarrick... with that base, it should be something else, given what you can do.

Astador
08-01-2007, 22:08
Of course, everyone is included! Well my first cd was alot of mixes. This one I am trying to stray from remixing to more of my own stuff. Which includes Trance, Dance, and other fun stuff! lol

Well I had my chair to paint in and had set a bowl of cereal in it and I got up and tripped and the milk flew everywhere. haha

Thanks for the comments mate! I try my best to please yall!

Haha ok, for sure tomorrow I will get some pictures of them and the table. I based it all tonight so tomorrow it should be dry. So here is the plan, after school tomorrow, I have to go fix my bank account, exchange my copy of Mark of Chaos for one that works, come home, finish the second squad, move the table back inside and take picture! Hopefully I can accomplish all of that! lol

11-01-2007, 09:56
hmm i dont think i have commented here for a while so here it goes.

The DKOK are looking very nice indeed. The grey and bleached bone are nice and brooding and capture the very cynical nature of the korp, good work. Also the bases on all of your miniatures are very good and give the armies a sense of realism that lots of other miniatures lack. The hellhound and the sentinel look fairly good, the rust and weathering on them looks very well done, but i think there is a bit too much on the sentinel, seems like it was pulled out of a swamp, maybe tone it down on the next sentinel?
The other thing that amazes me is the speed at which you are painting your korp. they look pretty good for the time taken on each one. Other than that lose the xbox and tv and paint! keep up the good work
the emperor protects

Astador
11-01-2007, 12:16
Hey thanks mate! I agree the second Sentinel will be much better. Thanks for the comments, I should have more pictures tonight.

liamrob
12-01-2007, 04:55
You skipped 6th to go play DDR still good :p

But skipping 6th for painting is even better. But everyone needs a social life. Only 40mins though so you don't get much done if ya skip.

get more paint applied.

He looks good from what i can see. The problem with the seond pic is the camera is trying to focus on your fingers and the model. I think.

Looks good!

you're stuff looks great, with your camera, take pics in natural light, move it back and forht in front of the model to find focus.
i like the iron warrior the flesh is excellent and the tiger stripes on the chainsword are nicely done. the bone on your DA looks quite nice too, i'd really love some close-ups.

I'll be sure to take close ups for you! I just finished the third member of the squad!

For rmm I do.
Prime Black
Basecoat Scorched Brown
Boltgun Metal
highlight with Chainmail or Mithril, or for dull look, don't highlight. I didn't use a highlight layer on the Iron Warrior.

AR

Astador
17-01-2007, 15:09
Thanks guys! Everything looks better in person first of all. lol

The armour was done by basecoating him Scorched Brown and then painting Boltgun metal, letting Scorched Brown shw through in areas.

schoolcormorant
17-01-2007, 15:38
might i suggest one thing?
an ink wash on the bolters. you may have done one already but i'm thinking about the magazine, get say 30:70 ink and water and add a tiny brush tip'worth of 'ardcoat gloss varnish (breaks up surface tension) and lightly apply it to the bolter metal - not too much just a little, enough to sep into gaps, too much and you'll darken the entire thing. :)

i'm painting too, the first time in three days!

It looks like a bretonnia archer head. I myself use them a lot..

liamrob
17-01-2007, 23:41
I like the robed head :p

The assault sgt seams a bit odd. I neva used a unhelmeted head on my assaults cause flying at high altitudes and then diving down and slicing everyone up i think its a bit odd. You'd die of oxygen or something would hit u in the face. Otherwise if it was a respirater head i don't think anythings wrong.

Its up to u though. I use the faces then for my sgts or for my bitz box.

As Hertz said they are from the Brettonian Archer Sprues. This is the only squad I used them on, but I believe I used them on the enitre squad.


Very nice astador. very interesting - one Q, why are some parts primed and some not?

thi is post 400!

SC

The reason for some parts being primed is I planned to paint them seprately, then I decided to just paint them all assembled and worry about the quality later.

Woot! over 400 posts!! haha

Thanks for all the comments guys, I just got back from hanging with the guys, everywhere we went was closed! lol Anyway, I'm priming the squad and the first 5 Assault Marines so I can start painting them after dinner. I wish it was the weekend so I didn't have to worry about school tomorrow!

For sale, anything and everything you've seen here and whatever I have. I'm getting rid of all my Warhammer stuff. Reason; $400 of DKoK turned to a barely fixable state after I'm gone for an hour. So story behind it is, I left for Tyler, Tx Friday morning, about an hour after I'm gone all my DKoK models are practically destroyed by my families two cats, and now with my little time I have I am seriously thinking about selling everything I have. If anyone is interested in anything let me know.

Not a real conversion, just decoration. The side panels are CoD sprues, and the top has eagles.

I went back through, last night I was tired and had been gone for two days, I can fix a handful of them, but one or two are going to look weird. But yes, my plan is to buy more when I sell the rest of my stuff.

Proof is given so Scorpio is happy.:D
Looks good and weird thing about your comp. IIRC about a year ago my comp had the same thing happen. It was a virus or something.

Looks like it fixed itself though.

Let me count. I sent School 6 of them. Their plastic, not bad condition but some might need to be stripped. I will also send the sprues with their heads and any spare terminator arms and pads I have lying around. Give me a minute and I'll see how many I have.

Alright sorry for the lack of updates lately. I just haven't felt the urge to paint, but as I didn't get home till after curfew tonight I have a feeling my keys might be taken and I might be stuck home more often, so I shall hopefully get work done again. I'm still looking for a scheme for my DKoK, any help?

Scorpio
19-02-2007, 22:51
Look at some WWI german uniforms. Thats where alot of the DKoK ideas come from. It also help to know what kind of planet your going to be having them play on most often...

Well I'm still unsure what to do. I keep thinking something realistic and the more I think about it the more I am unsure. If anyone has any ideas, their going to be city veterans for a campaign.

Scorpio
24-02-2007, 15:37
A mix of black grey and dirty white. Thats pretty standard for Urban schemes. For their overcoats do grey then just take your brush and dab splotches of blavk and white. Helmet black and gun is whatever you want.

Well theres a suggestion

Well I had come very close mate! I go to get my knees checked this Tuesday, hopefully no surgery for me! haha. No anyway, I am looking for someone local who will buy all my non IG stuff for around $300-$350. Then I will be doing my Dark Angels again, I already got the order waiting from GW Online Store, just need the money! Once I have them, I'll be finishing off my DKoK army. Right now, I am still repairing them and preparing for a 500 point game tomorrow. Hopefully it goes well, it is against Catachans and Necrons. Because of the low points and the inexpierience of the Catachan player we dropped the required Junior Officer in the Platoon. My list looks something like this.

HQ
Senior Officer- MC Power Fist, Storm Bolter, Carapace Armour.
Command- 4 Guardsmen, 1 Veteran, Master Vox, Grenade Launcher, Standard.

TROOPS
Squad 1- 9 Guardsmen, Veteran, Grenade Launcher, Sniper
Squad 2- " "
Squad 3- 9 Guardsmen, Veteran, Flamer, Sniper
Squad 4- " "

I'm not sure if I am taking Drop Troop doctrines, I am for sure taking Die Hards and Light-Infantry. That in all brings me to around 450 pts. I have the list the Catachan player is using because I wrote it and he is using some of my Cadians to fill what he is missing with his Catachans.

Alright guys! After a long period without updates I have begun painting again. I decided Guard weren't for me at this point. And my love for the Dark Angels has taken over again. So I began working on a Sergeant for my Deathwing army when I redo it.
C&C welcome. I've only begun him, so he needs alot of work. Gold nmm.

AR; Actually it really is quite easy. I basecoated him black, scorched brown, then worked up with Snakebite leather and highlighted with mixes of white. It worked well and looked good!

Deadley; Thanks mate! Thats an honor from ya!

haha I know! I have a lot of work to do! I have alot of Dark Angels to paint, I need to get my IG ready for ebay, and I need to get more DA stuff!! haha
To answer your question, yes I did. I used a combination of Brown, Purple, Magenta, and 'Ardcoat. It looks better in person, the pics make him really dark.

Hahah thanks mate! Well its good to be back and posting. Hate to say I'm not working on my guys at the moment I am actually playing a 2K point game at the Hobby Store right now. Its a 4 on 3 game and the 3 other guys on my team are alright but not great so I have to defeat Daemonhunters, Chaos, and Necrons mostly on my own. Necrons are my main objective because the player pisses me off 24/7. so yeah, I shall let yall know how I fair. Atleast I wrote my Brothers BT list for the game and their 3 psychers are going to suffer when the BT charge them real fast!

Haha thanks mate! Although I did not win I had fun and definatly earned my 2K points worth. Hard to say the same for the rest of my team. But during the game we decided we're going to do a club table at Gamesday either this year or next.

Well aside from finishing this guy, I need to start painting my other Marines. I am working on selling my Tau and DKoK/IG stuff for more marines, so hopefully more money flowing in means more models turning out!

Well I did some more work on him and took some better pictures, but they didn't help how he looks. I wish I would get amazingly good pictures. I'll keep trying. Anyway to please the hungry masses.

Hes looking good. The only bad part of the pic is the gun. Try moving it back alittle more or pointing him another direction so there isnt such a contrast in distance from the camera.
