    Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    This will be a project log of various things as I slowly reintroduce myself into the hobby, I will only be using stuff I already Have in storage as I don't want to spend a small fortune in models just to take a long break again. Prices really have gone up since I have been away.

    I have a space marine battle force and some gaurd laying around, I'll start there.

    I love urban themed gaurdsman and I want mine to look grizzled and battle hardened. I had all sorts of bits left over from an old gaurd army I once had but sold and this is what I built.

    Feed back always welcome.

    I'm not to sure what the rules are anymore on vet squads but for the purpose of fun I've included 3 special wepons - Sniper, flamer and plasma.

    I am trying to get my guys looking like the vets on this front page. I love how dark and gothic they look - one of my favorite covers GW have done.

    That looks like a very solid start. I especially like the guys with the masks. Makes me think about the chem dogs . The glasses and eyepatch gives a lot of character as well. Planning on adding any unit markers?

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    And finally the sergeant and a few group shots. Starting to feel my groove at again now however I am lacking a good colour pallet and good brushes (I am still using brushes from many years ago) so my reluctance to spend money will soon need to end as I will need to stock up on paints.

    I really like the mixture of bits you use on your infantry. Each trooper looks unique, and that can be difficult to do with the guard. The red shoulder pads are also rather distinctive. Will that be consistent within the whole army, or will you use shoulder pad colors to distinguish different squads?

    Thank you very much Gerod, just had a look over at your blog and you have great stuff going on over there! The unit I have painted are regular gaurdsman so I do want to distinguish my vets in some way - was thinking maybe painting either both shoulder pads red or having red helmets?

    Any other ideas?

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    I'm feeling more confident at this stage and I want to turn my attention to the space marine battle force. even during my break I did continue to read 40k novels and one was the Flesh Tearers book - I really liked how dark and savage that chapter is so I wanna to give those a go. My aim is to try to get a deep red blend with sharp highlights to really make them pop.

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    This is what I have come up with - excuse the flag I was messing around with some free hand. I have drilled some holes in the flag to make it more wethered, you can't see it well in the picture but I have broken up the center of the matt black back pack with red - I think I will do the rest of the unit in this style.

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    You are kind, thank you.

    Painting both shoulder pads is an interesting idea. Another idea is to add a stripe of paint to the shoulder pad. I've used gold on a blue background in the past. White or black nearly always show up well on the table top.

    Painting the helmets a different color is also a good option. If you get a chance to read one of the Ultramarine painting guides from previous editions you'll see lots of little ideas for battle honors and differentiation of units. I'm visually impaired, so I tend to gravitate towards those options that are visible from a long ways off. Your hobby experience will vary. Best of luck, and happy painting!

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    After the test marine I have decided to go straight in for the big cheese - I've got this guy around 90% done, I haven't taken a pic of the back as I haven't painted the robe yet. Not completely happy with the face either.

    I would welcome some feedback on this one, also any suggestions on the cape would be appreciated.

    I thought I would share the progress so far on the Flesh Tearers. Excuse the poor photo taking skills, I'm still figuring it out.

    Re: Cadian City Dogs and Flesh Tearers - by Animate

    I am not fully happy with the blend I am trying to achieve - I think it looks patchy in places. I'm not being a bad workman but I do feel I do no not have the correct brushes or paints. Pretty much mixing two shades of red for these models and it will be hard to keep them consestent throughout.

    Also if there is anyone veiwing this thread and has a picture of there set up I would love to see it - I have been browsing the forum for years and always love seeing people's work desks.

    I will ping over mine shortly.
