Relic Contemptor colour question

Alright, so I got back into modelling after a 2 months break and started working on my Relic Contemptor. He is almost complete and I am still amazed by how flexible it can be posed. One thing I'm wondering though is how I should paint him. I collect Dark Angels and since I want to run him as a Vener...

Re: How do I paint green capes.

Green capes huh? I did those only once, on my Venethrax for Warmachine, and I think I started with a basecoat of VGC Heavy Green (white primer). Next should've been Dark Green and then I started layering highlights with thinned down paints. I think the order was: Sick Green to Goblin Green to Escorp...

Re: Terminator army = ?chapter?

And of the three possibilities Deathwing is still the most viable, since you can kit out your squads of Terminators individually (you don't have to decide between Assault/Shooting like with Vanilla Marines). Further, Deathwing has quite cheap Cyclone Missile Launchers and you can have CC Termies who...

Re: DEIMOS PATTERN RHINO

I'm sure that hurt plenty. The Deimos upgrade looks okay to me, but I wouldn't buy it. I'm not planning on building a pre-heresy army anytime soon and I don't swim in money (sadly).

I think I will give myself another try at bringing my Ravenwing army up to 1500 points. So far I have built four bikes...

Re: new forge world contemptor body

The new Land Raider looks dumb, but the Relic Contemptor is really cool. I really am tempted to buy one, even more than when the original came out.

Re: The underappreciated chapters

I don't hate any particular chapter, I just make fun of some of them from time to time. My all-time favorites are Dark Angels, but I also like many others. Only the Imperial Fists and their successor chapters are a little iffy in my opinion. I have read my share of 40k novels including Helsreach and...

Re: Airbrushing Images

I'm not an expert on airbrushing, but I think the easiest way to airbrush a skull is using a stencil. Just make one from cardboard or paper, then spray it on with the colour of your choice.

Re: Question: Assault marines' Meltaguns

Just a quick question, are the Special Weapons sold in bitz packs metal or plastic?

Re: 40K Face Off: How many points can you paint in October?

Yay, Land Speeder is done! That nets another 100 Points although I forgot to put on the Assault Cannon (It's magnetized, I just forgot to snap it on there :oops: ) http://i685.photobucket.com/albums/vv220/aldi2500/Dark%20Angels%20WIP/IMG_3068.jpg http://i685.photobucket.com/albums/vv220/aldi2500/Dar...

Re: 40K Face Off: How many points can you paint in October?

Various reasons, the most prominent being that I have a strict "no unpainted models in my army!" rule.

Re: 40K Face Off: How many points can you paint in October?

I do have the models (for Ravenwing, I got two entire Battleforces still in shrinkwrap). I'm just extremely slow in building and painting them. Plus I get distracted very easily when I'm painting, I hardly manage to sit and paint for an hour straight. If I had the money I'd probably give my remainin...
