After a spate of actually playing the game I've finally got back to painting.
First up, slow progress continues on the Deathwing (I think slow progress is the only thing possible with these guys). Below is a picture of my newly applied Deathwing Transfers. I had to make these myself on photoshop so I'm quite proud at how they turned out!
I've also applied some transfers to my Tactical Marines, but I have no photos for you.
Next up, new additions to the Deathwing family!
The Sergeant for Belial's Squad - quite pleased at how the huge power sword turned out. The top DA logo looks better in the flesh as well.
The beginnings of my Terminator Apothecary:
I'm chuffed at how the white helmet has turned out, the limited layering seems to work well.
However, it's not all good. When I got round to trying to paint the converted Narthecium/Reductor it all seemed to go wrong. I was trying to layer up the white from Space Wolves Grey and the coverage was just not going right. It's ended up being a bit too thick and I'm not sure if I can salvage it.
This is an issue as I don't have another spare Narthecium/Reductor, and I REALLY REALLY don't want to buy a Command Squad for one part. Any advice on how to strip this (on the cheap) would be great.
After I've sorted this out I am finally going to get round to mixing some Bleached Bone & Skull White & then highlight the D'wing!
Contrary to the Apothecary, this went really well. I tried out a few new things (like the rust/painting chipping & drybrushing the tracks) and relied on the techniques learned on the Marines and Ravenwing to get the rest done.
To be honest, these pictures don't quite do it justice - the stone icons seem a little better in real life, as do the lenses. I might do a few details shots at a later date! Either way I'm chuffed, and I'm now really keen to start work on one of my Two Land Raiders. I have however promised myself that I would get some more troops out of the way first, and that means more Bikes and Terminators. Oh, and Belial - look out for some work on that within the month!
Thanks for reading!
