having multiple colors of a metal is good unless u got like...5... then its too much for the eye, I personally for the sensor use a brass gold colour, gold for the icons then silver for almost anything else, then wash it with the cloak brown (cuz that needs some shading anyways) than choose which to highlight with what colour to give some diversity so it isn't a flat like blob of gold.

Christmas was busy but good. i ended up Engaged by the end. $$$$$. and than i bought my first car on boxing day. $$$ so I'm going to be cutting my spending for a while but i have quite a few projects to last me a while for now.

Allright guys i have alot of pics to unload today. I'll start with pictures from my thursday meet.

Here is the army i am borrowing to play with while i paint.

hq is the vigilator
whirlwind tank
three dreadnoughts now a squad
2 squads with vascilca and hq with combi melta one is in the rhino.
we play 30K and are just finishing up the 1000 point games and about to start 1500 i believe the traitors are winning. . . .
Image

These are the two tables we play our 2v2 games on we play 2 games at a time so that's 8 guys playing at once.
Image

this squad almost won me the game except for the last leadership roll . . . .
Image
and an aerial shot
Image

next post will be some painting and assembly progress pics.

OKAY. so here is some progress on my 5 man command squad, 5 man assault squad and what has now become 6 man devastator squad.

the apothecary need some first aid. . . and now it just looks super flat but its coming along better than i thought for my first time painting white. ( i know he looks flat im not sure how to fix that. i tried some nuln oil in the creveces but that not in this picture)
BEFORE (my first attempt)
Image
AFTER (repaint)
Image

the devastator squad
I'm testing how hard it is to paint them fully assembled on the first guy, wish i could make em all heavy bolters but i dont have the parts.
Image
close up of unit
Image

the assault squad is ironically moving slowly for now. . . .they are just on temporary bases while i make the permanent one . . still not sure what to do there.
Image

here's a close of the bases so far
Image

and the units
Image

and the rest of the command squad minus the apothecary
Image

i might split them up and use the banner in a squad as a vasilica since i seem to be playing more 30K not sure just yet.


and last but certainly not least the librarian my mommy got me for Christmas. . .i am taking my time with him. . . i bought the paint to paint his Armour ultra marine blue and than he will have imperial fist shoulders correct ?
Image

did some more work on this unit with shading on his shoulder it isnt just the light giving it that effect this time. im pretty proud of how it looks. just gonna add another lighter yellow in a very small area on the top.
