X- Wing Tidy Up

So as usual in the UK on a Bank Holiday Monday it is wet,dreary and cold. I was hoping to be able to get my UNSC sprayed up but with the weather against I decided to tackle a job that I have been putting off for a long time.

WIP: Assembling the Fleet

Assembling the Fleet

Following on from the un-boxing post, I had some spare time this weekend to assemble the fleet. I started with the Covenant as for the pure reason they are purple and purple is cool right?

The ships are really nice clean casts and the instructions are very clear. Little in the way of mold lines to clean up. 

Each ship comes on its own base and in the game it is called an element. Elements are brought together to form Battle Groups. More on this in future posts.

The Fall of Reach

I have been ummming and arrrring about buying this for some time now, being a big time Halo fan and spending many hours as Master Chief blasting away at the Covenent, but just could not commit to buying it.However after seeing some of the great community paint jobs and the contents of the box I was sold on picking it up. After ordering it from Chaos Cards on Tuesday it arrived with me today, well packed and a speedy delivery, love those guys at Chaos Cards, there is also a great discount on the starter box saving yourself  £13 on the £80 box set.

WIP: Khorne Skullthrower

WIP: Khorne Skullthrower

So I am half way through the red, 2 layers of base coat and a wash so far, will be working on the highlighting and details over the weekend.

I have kept the front wheel separate to make it easier to get to the underside whilst painting. 

Looking forward to tackling the metal on this beast as there is a lot of it and it will give me a chance to work on my technique.

'Guards leave us'

Well I finally got around to start painting the figures from Imperial Assault. Happy with the way these have turned out.
Also tested out a new location for taking photos so they are a little better lit and now need to work on how to do close ups.

Comments welcome as always

WIP: Armada Rebel Fighter Squadrons

So another post today and this one is the start of my Rebel Fighters for Armada.

I am not to happy with the y-wings the body needs a little more highlighting as I used Nuln Oil to shade and I thinnk that it has come out a little to dark and flat.

With the A-wings I used Agrax Earthshade and I think the warmer brown ink gives more natural space worn look.

Let me know what you think

This has been on my painting table for the past week, the challenge was the armour and trying to add depth to the pure metal. I did experiment with the blue hue that GW used but I found that it just looked to patchy. There is a lot of great detail on the model especially the purity seals and books.

Not sure if I will paint any more Grey Knights but who knows.....

I know that I need to get a better set up for taking photos and getting more light onto the model.

Will experiment next week and see if I get work out how to improve my picture taking.
