Bathalian Centurion, 14559

I got three of these to stand if for Venomthropes in my tyranid army. Going to do the base to match the others when I've got them all done.:

This guy is awesome. I hope mine look half as good when I get to them. Did you use metallics for the highlights, or just shade the grey/white that well?

He is painted the same way as the rest of my Tyranids. Using metallic silver mixed with black paint.

Thanks for that. Your tyranids and bathalians look awesome.

      Been working on this project for some time now, and hoping to get it done for a local competition in september.
      Still a lot to do, but I'm mostly happy with what I have made so far..
      I bought a bits-box with loads of Wahammer bits, and decided to try and sculpt a bigger tyranid out those bits, as a maine character for the scene. I find the sculpting as fun as the painting..and well, the Warhammer stuff seems rather expensive.
      I know nothing of the Warhammer 40K world, so it also been fun reading and researching for stuff.
       
      This will be a scene in the Wahmmaer 40K world. Three tau XV25's and one drone (not pictured) are behind enemy lines, and attack some sort of Tyranid base..
       
      First two pictures a finished minis, A Tau XV25 (its a battle-suit with a 'tau-person' inside), and a small tyranid.
       
      Next is the big tyranid, grey stuff is from the bits box, light-brown is Fimo sculpting clay and green is green-stuff. It is mostly done, but need a bit of grinding a maybe a few more details. The tail is going to end into next picture, where the tau is in big trouble (or is he?). The tau is painted, but the tail is just sculpted and a few strokes of priming.
      The part where the tail is shot to pieces is made of small pieces of fishing line, white-glue and sculpting paste. I glued the fishing line more or less randomly in place with super-glue-gel, super glue to hold the two pieces of tail in place. Covered everything with water thinned white-glue. put on some blobs af sculpting paste and covered everything in water-thinned white glue again.
       
      Last pictures is the base, mostly just primed. The tau's are attacking from the left side of the first picture, and the small tyranid will be lurking in the cave.
       
      Feel free to suggest, critiq and comment on anything, thanks for looking.

      so....
       
      The painting funk has lasted for 4 months, and I need to get my cranium out of my anal orifice and start painting again....
      Posted Thursday at 09:46 PM So....
       
      While on the hangouts with some folks that play 40K, we have been talking about stuff, and I went to look for a figure that I knew I had, and didn't want, that @Chaoswolf thought was cool, and found the following:

      Now this is the basis for my mechanical Obliterators that I painted way back in 2003? and brought to Reapercon last year

      where they got a silver medal in the open category
       
      Speaking with one of the judges afterwards (@dks) we discussed them, and the painting dragged them down, as I said old paintjob...
       
      Well, with my painting funk in its 4th month, I was thinking that maybe, I could re do a new one from scratch, and with all the sculpting things I have learned, as well as painting techniques, I might be able to do better...
       
      Now Reaper forbids entering the same piece twice, but this would be a reprisal of something I did years ago....
       
      Would this be legal as a new entry?
      @Heisler care to comment?
       
      George
       
      @Heisler's response
      As long as the entry is an entirely new piece and not one of those three then it would be a perfectly legal entry.
       
      My response...
      thanks @Heisler
      really hoping this will kick out the brain weasel painting funk!
       
      For some reason, I couldn't cross quote so....
       
      It's gonna be ugly for a while....
       
      the raw components:

      lots and lots of surface grinding with the Dremel tool, and sore fingers.....
       
      But hopefully, I've learne a bit about painting and sculpting since I did those guys, and this time, there will be only one....
