Tale of Painters Deadline 2: Met

The army, it grows! 

Another quick painting update today, to let you know I managed to get my ToP entry in to Librarium Online on time (just). 

For this months 200pts I painted up the Landspeeder that I've shown off before and some new Deathwing

Although I was keen to get them finished (and thus rushed through them a little) I'm pleased with a number of things with these termis. I used similar blending from my Power Sword tutorial to good effect on the lightning claws, and I'm pleased with how my first attempt at feathers turned out. I also think the guy wielding the cyclone missile launcher and the thunderhammer just looks cool! 

I've still not started to highlight the bone armour, so they aren't 100% done yet. I'm waiting till I have all the Deathwing done and them I'm going to go back and highlight the lot. If I want to keep up with ToP (which I'm finding amazing motivation to paint) then I've not got the time to highlight them right now. Still, they are tabletop worthy.

I leave you with two visions of the immediate future. One is a picture of the Rhino I've started working on. I'm really pleased with how its shaping up. Secondly is a promise that there will be a few battle reports (featuring the DA) on The Astronomican before this year is out, so look out for that soon.

As usual I would love to receive and comments or crit. Thanks for reading!

nothing says cool like a missile launcher and a giant hammer. Those guys look great. The rhino is sweet can't wait to see the finished shots. Keep it up.

Cool crisp and neat paint work. Love them. And I agree, Thunder Hammer and Cyclone look uber cool - shame its not in the Codex now.

Thanks for all you comments guys, forms a great motivation! Look out for more soon...

Spih - It may not be in your horrible brand spanking new codex, but it's perfectly legal with the good old DA :P

Thats actually a bonus I'd not considered before, but its doesn't quite make up for not having your Storm Shields!
