    spikyjames's big painting log

    well on completion of my mentor legion log a few people asked if i could start posting more pics of other stuff. my intention is to add all the stuff i paint to this thread. within the next week i will hopefully add an eight man squad of imperial guard vets, an ogre rhinox rider and a high elf hero. both the fantasy mini's are a massive change for me but i feel i need to expand my painting style and habits having painted over 150 marines and vehicles plus about 80 or so tyranids over the last year.
    so anyway without further ado here's the first of the guardsmen-


    this will be part of hopefully a much larger army which i am basing on an inquisitors personal army/body guard.

    hope you all like him

    Hey! It's an Imperial Stormtrooper! And he's smiling, too! He looks ultra-sweet, I hope the rest of them look as good.

    the red is a base coat of scab red over a chaos black undercoat, this is followed by building up layers of blood red and then a very small highlight of blazing orange.

    yep FW Hard vets

    Bam! Hits like a sledge hammer, my painting confidence has been crushed due to your superior skills. Hell, you even painted the eye! On a Guardsman! I can't wait to the rest.

    Re: spikyjames's big painting log

    after seeing your mentors i had high expectations of the guard force nice to see that i wasn't disapointed.

    and i hope the 70th guardsmen is as good as the first!

    astonishing so far looking forward to seeing more.

    Re: spikyjames's big painting log

    I think the Rhinox is awfully monochrome, it could do with some patterns, even though you've painted the tusks/teeth/hooves. I recommend a lighter colour on the Ogre than on the Rhinox.

    James those gaurdsmen are amazing! I especially like the shadowing you have done on he face of the 2nd one there, very realistic.

    The rhinox looks good, I feel sure it will look even better once it is finished.
    Keep up the good work.

    Re: spikyjames's big painting log

    Stunning stuff there...

    on the Guardsman, i love the faces...simply great. Makes me feel quite inadequate...

    Guardsman 2 - yes the symbol does need tidying. My eye is drawn to it purely because it's not as clean and neat and, well, good as the rest of the model...

    Rhinox

    Love it. I dont think, now it's completed, that it's too monochrome. You have achievd a great depth of colour on both the Rhinox and the rider.

    Very impressive - thanks for sharing
