Cav Adon painted force (pic heavy)


Recommended Posts

Greetings all as the summers now over I'm going to be painting again so I'm going to be painting an Adon Cav force theme that I've decided will be a jungle style Camo. I'll add to this thread as I did with the UTF force that I did earlier in the year http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78751-cav-utf-painted-force-pic-heavy/&tab=comments#comment-1678472

 

so heres the 1st test batch that I'll be sorting A Mantis, Kestrel, Bishop & Ogre Cavs with some ground support from Some Chieftains, Commander I & Centipede ground vechiles.

Look forward to seeing this :winkthumbs: just don't expect to see a Savage Coyote level of painting mine are always quick & dirty ::o::poke:

 

Just a quick update I've decided just to do the Kestrel and Chieftains 1st to see how to quickly get the scheme sorted and the quickest way to progress with it. Next is the strips which will be a yellow colour just deciding best way to do them paint straight yellow or will probably paint a light grey 1st then yellow over the top.

 

base Green colour added

Evening all,

 

Just waiting for the shading to dry on my BB figures so I cracked on and did some quick painting on the Adon army, I'm looking at a zig-zag / crazy lines on these, tried using sand as the 1st colour before putting the mustard colour on top hopefully keep the mustard colour a bit stronger next I'll pick out the strips with a dark green line

Look a little messy at the moment but the dark lines and details that I'll pick out such as the cockpit should hopefully save them as you can see I paint quick & dirty ::D:

 

Raided my bits box and came up with some re-roll and turn/scoring markers for my Undead team

I have a large collection of BB figures that haven't been touched for years and painting these has given me the urge to paint all my teams up again might start another thread with those in it

 

Catch you all laters

Right Some forward momentum with the painting, BB figures pretty much finished bar the bases & Numbers so heres my progress on the Adon vehicles :

 

Added the darker strips tanks look ok Cav :unsure: but we'll how they look when finished

So getting there once shaded will be interested to see how they look after all these are test pieces for the rest of the anon force I'm also starting a new thread for the Bloodbowl figures

I love the BB figs! Took 2nd place in our league last round with my Female Chaos Dwarf Team, Pandora's Manic Sisters, was great watching a bunch of Lavendar clad loonies whoop bigger teams!

Back on this subject, I have learned over many years of painting minis, when I'm going to use yellow, I prime with white, then do the yellow and everything else. It really makes it easier and the yellow "pops" better.

thanks, yep these are tester pieces i suppose I could reverse the strips by painting yellow 1st with the green bits being added but might be a bit fiddly compared to the current way will tinker to see the best result for minimal effort as I've got 30+ of these to paint in all

Yeah, when you are painting that many figs, every shortcut helps.

Yep i've got 40 cavs and 32 vehicles & 4 aircraft to do for this force...::o: must be mad ::D:

 

Right got some progress on these done the shading still quite happy with the tanks but still unsure about it on cavs will have to do a couple more test pieces, also cut the flying base down for one of the graves tanks as i think they look a little high atm you can se the two heights in the pictures

This is the next batch

 

49923828111_070930914a_h.jpg

 

javelin, Wyvern, Chancellor, Challenger, Dervish x2 Cavs

Commander II tanks x2

Whisper x2, Ripper x2 (just fancied adding these to my army & painting some up)

 

Also working & failing on an Malvernis scheme ATM was suppose to be 1/2 white with orange highlights one side orange with white highlights on the other with a black (I think dark Grey might be better) down the middle but not liking the look at the moment perhaps once tidied up & shading is added it might look better otherwise I'll do them white with orange highlights light clone wars clone armour

you can see my dilemma ATM. Was tempted to do them in all gold with black & red raised parts ...

 

Keep safe & keep rolling dice ::D:
