Gorgeous Vanguard. The admech range is just brilliant isn't it. I love the colours you've chosen, is it a fluffy forgeworld or a scheme of your own making?

Thanks Rouven ( :P ) and Kroll!
I actually came up with the colourscheme myself. I always liked stegadon scale green and always wanted to use it! I'm realky happy that it works out this fine!

I'm progressing quite nicely on my onager dunecrawler! I might be able to live up to my pledge of finishing the top part of it till saturday!

Thank you guys! What do you think about my freshly painted Onager Dunecrawler? :D

He's so happy! Clearly it is because service to the Emperor is its own reward. ;)

Still progressing on my painting pledge! Only thing left to finish are the cream parts and two cables on the bottom of the tank! Oh and my new Codex Adeptus Mechanicus arrived in the mail today! :D

The admech range is so cool. Nice job on the infiltrator. Really like the weathering on the dune crawler too.

Absolutely stunning work man! I feel kind of guilty of doing quick and dirty paint jobs myself these days and then seeing your awesome blends and weathering!

Yes, absolutely. I also like the base. The subtle drybrush really highlights all he cracks without taking too much of the viewer's attention away from the mini.

The blue color scheme is really cool! The lighter blue you've used to add the light effect on the tazer is a nice touch.

Thanks! I tried using the "sponge"technique for the second time. I quite like the effect. If I should ever do a showcase miniI really like the admech range as well. I've always been a fan of the Adeptus Mechanicus! Wasn't too fond of the kastellan robots at first, but now I actually like their stoic vibe.

I'm mostly transporting my minis in a "Feldherr"-case filled with their precut foam. I don't really expect any problems.

I don't exactly know to which of your minis you are referring to... the blood bowl minis I've seen painted by you lately have always been nicely painted. I'm actually trying to speed my painting up with the Admech units. Therefore I don't highlight the metal parts on the infantry units but only drybrush those parts. At first I thougt of it as a "quick and dirty" paintjob myself, bit it saves me a whole amount of time and the effect is still nice. Sometimes spending a lot of time on certain parts can be prevented without the paintjob noticeable suffering and I think you're quite good at this concept!

Thank you but once I apply the pigments, those highlights will most likely be covered. I drybrush the base any way in case it might still be visible in certain areas.

I was referring to my orcs and possibly dark elves. Rather than using the 3 colours+wash approach, or actual blending I have used a 1 colour+wash then reapply said colour, in the interest of saving time.

I guess it is mostly my orcs that need some extra work to get them up to snuff. The guilt is real though, but that is the curse of perfectionism!
