Nice work!

 

I just got 2 sprues of Russ' finest to try and knock the desire to paint a full Space Wolf army out of me....

 

we will see how soon I get to them.....

This is an incredible paint job... the facial shading is masterful and all the details are separated and accented magnificently

 

But that blue is really jarring and incongruous - almost as if it were plastic (high tech polycarbonite armor) as opposed to metal - everything else has a consistant realism and shading but the blue seems almost 2D by comparison... - a less bold color might help, but i think it really needs more depth and shading

 

I haven't tried this yet, but i really enjoyed this blue armor and Marsya was kind enough to share the secret on page 2 of the thread

Best of luck!

As much as I've come to enjoy painting Space Marines, I think trying to paint an army of them would drive me insane.

Yeah I find I struggle with "painted" armour, just can't get my head around how to shade and highlight it (and it doesn't help that this one has photographed so glossily).

 

The armour in that link looks pretty good and sounds easy enough to do, I'll have to give it a try on the next guy in the pile.

I really like the shade of that blue, but agree that it needs more shading and highlighting.  Everything else is outstanding.

Holy smokes! That's the bluest blue in the whole of blue city! Gotta get me a bottle of that ASAP. *envy* Not sure how well it works on this figure though.

 

His face is sublime. It's shocking to see so much life in a face on a figure this scale (assuming it's the same scale as a normal marine). Other than his face, my favorite part is the leather on his book and book strap. Beeeeeautiful job on that leather! 

But that face... ::o: :wub:

Thanks, it's Vallejo Model Colour Royal Blue.

 

Yeah, Games Workshop have gotten pretty dang good at face sculpting in the last couple of years, so much fun to paint.

      Cute little dwarf from Bones 3. I painted her up to look like my priest in World of Warcraft. She is adorable! I still need to practice black hair but I like how she turned out and she is for kicking elf on the table so she's good to go. I practiced doing some plaid on her top. She also has a little bottle strapped to her waist. Is it a healing potion? Poison? Or just wine? Who will try it and find out?

      I’m happy with the progress so far, but every time I take photos I can see missed spots or places that would benefit from more attention. 


      Apologies for double post. Admins, Plz erase one of your choice.

      This guy came from a large number of Bretonnian miniatures given to my husband for a Warhammer army.  He never set up an army, but after many years of sitting ignored in boxes I've recently begun pulling some out and painting them to use as tabletop NPCs.

      I haven’t been that active on the forum in recent months. But I have still been busy painting my models.  In the last months I pushed through and painted a number of models. 
       
      The reaper models have been painted to tabletop standard. These will be used for my Dragons Rampant undead army. 
       
      At at the same time I have two Games Workshop armies to paint my Necrons and Blood Angles. These two units were purchased off eBay. 
       

       

       

       

       

       
      As as always comments welcome. Next year I plan to take more photos.
