Wicked, they look mean and nasty. I want an assault wave too....
I like how you've donr the orc skin too.
@death corp, thanks mate the assault wave came with old dire avengers though just to warn you.
@Arhalien, I've got the last serpent with cannons too. The scatter lasers were just for variation incase I forget which is the command tank.
As far as the paint scheme goes the command tank will be like the first gold falcon, the other two like the prism/falcon.
I've got a lot of painting to do.
Hmm, dare I say that it looks a tad plain, especially with the blacked out windows. I personally think it would look a lot better with the gold areas so it matches your falcon.
It is a little plain but I think my gold shiny falcon is a little too bright, still I'm painting the command one like that now.
Ah well, your choice.
I also think that the highlights look too thick and messy; I'd recommend trying to thin them down a bit. However, given my record at painting tanks you may decide to ignore me on this
Progress, magical progress, first my orcsies, I just make a nice Ebay purchase for them.
This is £36 worth of orcs
A close up of my BMBOBBBSB (boar mounted black orc battle standard bearer)
And some converted arrer boys
Next are my Eldar,
The first squad of avengers, completed
The second squad, still WIP
and the completed Command serpent (better or worse than the first?)
Are those 6th ed starter box orcs? Have you no shame! It's almost as bad as using BFSP dwarves!
Erm, where are the bows on the arrer boys?
Command serpent looks better, but mostly because the gold draws attention away from the highlights on the black, which are still messy I'm afraid to say.
About the highlights on the black, for some reason I am completely incapable of keeping the highlight a consistant width. I just can't do it.
I'm going to vet's night at my local GW for the first time on tuesday; so I'm trying to get as much stuff 3 colours and based as I can.
first off the second boys unit, including BMBOBBBSB.
and the second boar chariot, which is almost finnished in fact
Man I just looked at my pics again... the light's appalling they look like they're surrounded by cotton wool XD.
Right I tried out the washing thing harry suggested on a test ork but I think the green wash was too dark. Washed model on the left normal on the right.
Oh and I've greenstuffed and glued the snipey wraithlord.
Any comments, Even just random abuse would be appreciated.
YOU'RE USELESS YOU LONG HAIRED ELVEN PLAYING PANZEE SCUM!
On to the models; I like the effect of the wash actually; it makes the skin look darker which is always good for an orc
Is that a sly insult aimed at my day glow orks?
Even so I think I agree, expect to see the orks being washed as soon as I have time(could be a while).
Ok I'm painting my ass off for saturday where i'll hopefully be playing fantasy (Arhalien?).
The second boys unit, complete.
Oh and the second chariot is complete
If I don;t kill myself in frustratio at my total inability to settle down and work on this ruddy ToK essay I have to do for tomorrow, then yes, we should be able to have a game saturday
I'll edit in a comment when the pics finally decide to load
I'm now highlighting the wolf riders, which is fun...sigh
I thier 3 coulour state
and in 40k news I've made 3 objective markers.
And I've made the Autarch from the assault wave
Any comments are great.
Even Arhalien's abuse is fine.
Abuse is good?
Right, here goes:
That chariot; most lazy painting I;ve seen; black, black and more black. WHAT ARE YOU DOING!
And the poses on your wolf-riders are just ludicrous.
That was satisfying
Onto the serious post; I'm not too sure about the objective marker; the guardian is painted quite nicely (MOULD LINE ), but it just doesn;t look right. WHat I mean is, he doesn;t look like he's lying on the ground dead. Personally, I'd say that unless some pretty major covnersion work goes on, helmets are probably the limit of what you can get away with on bases.
Also, I'd say that some of the drybrushing on the objective markers ias a bit heavy; the patches of grey don;t look that good I;m afraid to say. try wiping more paint off your brushes and drybrushing more evenly over the whole piece.
Looking forward to the game on Saturday.
Yeah the drybrush really didn't work so I've blacked out the wall and started again.
In other news I've finnished the wolf riders, pics to follow when I'm back from school.
