BA Blog 4th April 13: Bikes

by Cain Tiberius on Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:39 am
Howdy folks.

So painting has been slow since I finished the Hawk. I really don't like painting large models :/
But I have now finished a Raven Wing style squad. Yeah I know that's DA, but I think the unit composition fits well in any SM force. As my 2nd Co. is complete, these are from the 8th Co. (assault Co.) which is represented by a double green tear drop on the right shoulder. On models from this Co. I'm deciding to for go the embossed shoulder pads and just free handing the symbols. All the bases are made by me as usual.

The 2 bikes on the left side are from the Dark Vengence set. The 2nd bike to the right side is an eBay rescue. And the other 3 bikes, the attack bike and the speeder are all from my 10 year old force, with the same update techniques I've mentioned before.

Models of note are the attack bike and speeder....

Bara's adventures in dipping

by Baragash on Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:11 pm
Little experiment in dipping on a "red shirt" model:
Image
Image

Method:
Spray white
Usual base technique
Brush on Quickshade Medium
Clean brush in white spirit
Pick out collar in Chainmail
Light drybrush of Bleached Bone
Light drybrush of Skull White (inc base)

Job done :)

(Well I need to tidy the rim and do a quick wash on the Chainmail, but yeah)

Hopefully this will develop into a speedy appearance of my Tomb Kings :)

Thanks Matt :)

BA Blog 22nd Sept

Ok, squad 10 is now finished.

2nd Co. 10th Squad (Devestator) led by Sergeant Triam.

As missile launchers seem to be a staple these days, I chose to equip all 4 heavies as missile launchers. For the same reason I chose not to magnetise. Also as I want all my Sergeants to have flags, I removed the sensor thing from the back pack. I built that a little stand to be a separate model which can also be placed next to who ever has the improved BS that round. I didn't have enough missile back packs, so the 2 I had I placed on regular bolter guys as I also felt it more realistic to imagin someone other than the heavies carrying the ammo.
