Marit Lage's #weeklypaint 2018: Motivation Edition

Post by Marit Lage » Wed Feb 07, 2018 7:18 pm

Man, I've been lazy about getting this thread started up. Not for lack of painting this time, though. I've been using the Retributor Gold instead of Ghenna's Gold and man, does it make a difference. I've been painting a whole lot of power armor this year. I've been going for a different look this time around, with a nice clean look to the army.

Sorry if the quality of the pictures is low, and the slight shininess to the models, I'm using the new GW varnish, and it gives a slight satin look to them, although the quality of the varnish itself is quite nice, and can be used in all weather conditions.

After seeing how good the gold looked, I couldn't resist, and redid all of his trim, and cleaned up his trophy rack, weapons, and hair.

While I love the Chosen models from Dark Vengeance, they don't look like anything other than HQs, so I've painted them up as Exalted Champions and a Dark Apostle.

For the same reasons as Abbaddon, I've repainted my Terminator's trophy racks, weapons, and gold trim.

Finally got around to finishing the unit, along with the new gold trim, and sector bases.

I'm still not finished with these guys, but a friend of mine is letting me use a plastic tool this weekend for the texture paint to clean up the paint.

Here's the first generic power armor model the new gold, and I'm pretty happy with him.

I'm trying out edge highlights on this Rhino, but I'd like some feedback before continuing.

The Rhino highlights look good, but I think it could do with a little gold trim somewhere to match the dudes.

Maybe gold in the recesses of the front and the back on the sides of the Rhino?

That may be a little overwhelming, I’d pick out raised metalwork, like the 8 pointed star on the front, handles, exhausts etc.

I've been wanting to play this as an army since the Forge World stuff started getting released, but GW had great timing for me. Heh.

I'm going to be playing them this weekend against 1,000 points of Death Guard.

Got more work done ok these guys, and man are they a blast to paint. I'm trying a simple power weapon effect, and hopefully it looks good enough to apply to the rest of my army.
