Wonderful Crimson Fists, neat Space Wolfs, Starks333 and DV8. You both keep amaze me with your commitment to the armies, but as one who never finished one, who am I to talk?
Keep the good work up and I'll look forward to that rhino.

the krieg were on hold as DV8 lost interest in 40k for a bit after 5th came out...but ive broken him back in hahah

they are next after the gaming table from what i hear, obviously awaiting the new codex before anything else is done

the fists are done, and sold actually, the owner seemed to like them quite a bit, which makes me quite happy

the scorpions have been quite simple but effective i think, i was going to make mods all over but decided to just go for basic simple mods to keep them neat and interesting but quick and easy....the master of the forge however is around 20 some pieces of metal...and will make my pin vices bleed

im close to having the majority of the assembly done, and will begin airbrushing within the next 2 weeks by my guess, so expect some action soon

It's looking great guys! I love the space wolves, I do agree that the transfers a bit shiney still, but you've still managed to apply them to shoulders without wrinkles which is awesome. What approach did you use for weathering the rhino?

All this work being done by you two is kinda showing me that I need to get a move on with my stuff! I've just been working on a commission for the last bit and haven't touched any of my own stuff unfortunately.

I too am waiting on the guard codex before I really work on the guard portion of my army again, all I know is it's going to incorporate Valkyries... lots of Valkyries, the new plastic model is sweet!

That being said, I've got sitting in front of me all the vehicles for my marines and some of the infantry that I need to get to building, let alone painting!

I hadn't though of that, but you're right. Given that all the marines have yellow shoulders, it's surprising there is no yellow on the tank. That being said, I don't think it's necessary by any means to add yellow on, its a bit late now anyhow, I'm curious as to DV8's reasoning for not using yellow on the vehicles though.

DV8
26-03-2009, 14:37
More just a personal experiment/test really. I've always painted marine vehicles with dual scheme, the hull of the vehicle in the same color as the armor, and the inset "plates" of the front in the secondary color (usually found on shoulderpads). As an example, my old Black Templar vehicles from years back:

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42/mybrain/Vortigern%20Crusade/AquinasThree-Quarter.jpg

I was just seeing if a single color tank could look good, and I think they do.

What do you use to get your salt to stick someone once said to use water but I dont think thats how this process works heheh sorry im sure its been mentioned and I kinda get what you said above. paint undercoat of rust or metal, seal it. Then add the salt (how do you do this) paint over it and then chip it off after to expose the under colours

Legacy40k
08-04-2009, 12:38
I look forward to seeing how your marines turn out after the salting Starks, I'm debating what approach I want to take to doing the damage on mine.

To prove that I am back to work on my various projects... you can A: look at my Tau Thread (http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148014:)

or take a look at my stack of WIP Death Watch drop pod doors. I was originally trying to make a mold of the original door, and while I was able to make some decent molds, I couldn't get a good cast out of them so i've decided that the time I spent trying to cast them.. I could have just made most of them up from scratch, so I'm changing gears now.

Step one:

Filling in the holes on door. I didn't do this the first time, but it did cause some issues when doing the patterning with the GS.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/Legacy40k/Space%20Marines/DSCF1700.jpg


Step two:

Flattening the doors: getting rid of the studs and the GS bumps.

Legacy40k
08-04-2009, 22:38
Most of the holes are filled and the studs have been removed. There is one hole on the top I need to fill. I could have done it before adding the plastic trim, but it's just as easy to fill it under the trim and match it up.

The plastic comes in long strips, I just cut it to a rough length, glued it on, and then cut it more precisely.

Then add the salt (how do you do this) paint over it and then chip it off after to expose the under colours

The undercoat doesnt have to be rust or metal colour, just something that contrasts or flows nicely with your intended main colour

some people use water but i like to have it held on a bit more tightly so i use future floor wax to hold it on...you can thin it down a bit with water if you want, doesnt really matter

the hairspray is to seal the firts layer so it doesnt chip/rub off when i start using rubbing alchohol to literally rub the top layer off



@legacy, that door is looking sick!

@legacy, that door is looking sick!


14 to go! I ran out of plastic strips, just got more today :)

Are these marines you're painting Crimson Fists? The reason I'm debating using the brown coat method of battle damage is that the marines I'm doing that will receive it are tan and red, which means I would have to put down a white primer coat over the brown to get the colours to stay rich. I'm really looking forward to see how you progress with them.


As for salt.. I have personally just used water mixed with salt to make a slurry and used it to good effect. I'd imagine the floor wax method is a bit better, but pure water is perfectly adequate. I think I prefer the liquid mask/sponge method better though, even if it is a pain to remove.

I love the Space wolves, that guide on the grey will be very helpful in the future, also the weathering on the crimson fists is superb.
Also starks, do you put salt on the model then spray it with hairspray, or the opposite?
And how much hairspray do yo apply? Like a thin or thick coat?

thin layers of hairspray, its the same as applying dullcoat or other "varnishes"

Well, the new guard book is out and my fears were not realized. I was afraid that with the new guard codex I wouldn't be able to make the army I wanted, that is an elite guard army. I was influenced heavily by Section 9 in Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex when conceptualizing this army.

But.. with Veterans being allowed to be fielded as troops in the codex, the army I wanted to make is even more plausible!


Firstly.. the start of a veteran squad. My guard don't wear skirts so I had to remove them from the Cadian legs, hence the Greenstuff work. The Catachan legs worked fine. On the right is an example of what they should end up looking like.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/Legacy40k/Imperial%20Guard/DSCF1728.jpg

The next photo is showing some progress on the Drop Pod Doors with the prototype showing the end result. I ended up using a mix of GS and Miliput for this because I wanted to be able to sand the surface flat. I ended up with problems however since the mix was incredibly sticky and difficult to work with. I attribute this to having too much miliput in the mix. The lines were cut with a knife on the first and on the new ones I ended up using a wood carving chisel better define them.

I had asked DV8 a question about his primer and some dude got all emo and said, "Don't bother asking him painting questions - he rarely answeres." Then DV8 answered and the dude got even more emo. Too bad. I loved following DV8's progress. I guess there is more pressure when you are amazing at what you do. I loved his Vampire Counts a lot. Now we won't see them finished... :(

Here's one of my razorback WIPS.

I've basecoated/primed it with a flat brown spraypaint and applied liquid mask with a sponge. The liquid mask will be removed after all the painting on the tank is done and it will leave all the areas that were masked brown, giving it a damaged appearance. I'll have to then shade some of the brown areas by hand if they are big.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/Legacy40k/Space%20Marines/DSCF1762.jpg

Here's a few of the Black Reach marines. While the models aren't bad they did require a few changes. Firstly.. I had to remove the Tactical squad arrows from the shoulders. I don't like them. Then I created a draped cloth to cover some of the areas where the sculpted detail is lacking.

The sergeant model has always bugged me because he's not looking at what he's pointing at. So.. I removed his head and gave him a new one that's actually looking where he's pointing. Now I'm just waiting on a right handed power sword to give to him.

Well, I guess if people are still reading this, I'll post an update too.

I tried to do battle damage with liquid mask on this tank, but... I couldn't get the mask off after all the paint. I was prepared for this however so I used my backup of applying paint with a sponge to get the battle damage look. I'm sure I'll tweak it a bit more because I'm not 100% happy with it at this point.

I also may try the salt/hairspray teqnique on future tanks but that will pose it's own set of problems. The masking used for the quarter scheme will interfere with the salt and vice versa, so along those lines I may have to use the sponge afterpainting.

I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out however. The masking went cleaner and better than expected.

I dont mean to insult cause the chips and weathered metal looks amazing but the placement and use of it bugs me a little. It seems very random on the marines and scouts less wear and tear, and it all seems to be chips and no scratches. It is almost to much. Sorry I really am impressed and respect your work but it kinda bothers me.

G.Hawke
29-07-2009, 07:29
see i like that randomness, i mean real life rust can be very wear and tear is random the majority of the time (though obviously the basic stuff like regular exposure to water wouldn't apply to a marine), and it's a side effect of the salt resist technique i -think- hes using for it as its hard to control on smaller mini's

@legacy, i think the problem is you waited till the mask was dry, it hardens and is harder to remove, they usually remove before it fully dries

what you can do to make the chipping look better is highlight spots with a graphite pencil, and add some small black linning in places to gain a bit of separation

also the purple you are using is not dark enough, you need more darkness in cuz right now its just tinting the red rather than shading it

It seems very random on the marines and scouts less wear and tear, and it all seems to be chips and no scratches. It is almost to much. Sorry I really am impressed and respect your work but it kinda bothers me.

i understand, and you are correct, it was very randomly thrown on, a bit of placement was used, but not much

you can only paint on ridiculously large scratches at that scale, its very finicky, and time consuming, and just not what i was after

these models were painted quite quickly, for the tabletop, accuracy wasnt really the goal, keep in mind these photos are big zooms of tiny figures, the contrast is higher in the photos because of the flash and my lack of editing

that being said its a fair comment!

The problem is... I can't decide which left hand I want? Pointing or open? Thoughts? Suggestions?

Good lord, that's mind-blowing. Did you ever mention what sort of green you use? It's absolutely wild, and I want it in the most loving sense of the word.

Its scaly green+ some dark flesh to darken and desaturate and english uniform to yellow

highlight with iraqui sand, line with a coal black + thamar black + scaly green mix

Added some paint to the deathwatch dread. At this point, it's 100% airbrushing so there is a lot of tidying up to do with a paintbrush.. let alone detailing.

great stuff guys! loving it all, as for the inquisitor, i would go with pointing too, yes, open hand looks nazi-ish, but pointing looks more "accusing" which is the idea of an inquisitor

Here's an update on this guy.

Still a fair bit of cleaning up to do and some more details to add. After a discussion with Starks we concluded his shoulder pads need to be changed.

Also.. he needs something on his back, or something needs to be done with the random blob on it.. any suggestions would be great.

Stunning work, the DKoK models just wants me to dive into my untouched models, but I've promised myself to finish my touches on my Smurfs first :P

On another note; DV8, ho'w the IKEA display working for you? I have it as well and find it a tad too sensetive (the glass shelves) the slightest bump and I get to adjust half of all my armies in it :P

Here's the techy veteran to go in the retinue.. He has gained Tau weapons and armour through negotiations with the Empire.

As for the inquisitor.. I found this backpack in one of my bits boxes. I'm not really sure what it's fro, but it fits him alright I think. I just tacked it on temporarily to see what people think of this backpack?. I also added another 2 straps to his collar.

Haha, yea. My inquisitor believes that the greatest threats to the imperium are the Orks and the Tyrannids and when it comes to their destruction.. the ends to justify the means. He'll use anything to help destroy those races.

If you are talking about the fluff, no they are living men :)

If you are asking about the painter who was doing the DKOK he left warseer due to some comments by some user. You can see more of his work in bolter & chainsaw forums if you are interested. (not sure if its the same guy but the nick the same and painting style very similar)
