Well, its not like I have to get it all done in 11 days :roll:. I've only gotten one one Kroot and a Crisis Suit painted for the submission. If I knock out a couple of FWs I'll be set for the first month ;).

I think your color scheme is great! I love the yellow on models, I wish I had the patience to paint good yellow.
I want there to be images allowed in Siggys!

Thanks for the compliments :mrgreen:. I hate to admit it, but I cheat on the yellow. The Iyanden Darksun Foundation Paint from GW is actually a medium/dark yellow color and I just highlight it with a thin coat of Golden Yellow. It is more apparent on the FW I painted in this set because I hadn’t tried it yet when I painted the Crisis Suit. When I tried the Foundation paint it was an amazing difference in the coverage on the model and basically eliminated the black spots that show through from the undercoat on the Crisis Suit.

These are some minis I had painted before the pledge, but I don't have them posted anywhere else together as a group so I figured they would be a good add for this thread ;).

Looking good. I like the effect on the Stealth Suits!

Though you seem to be lacking in the highlighting realm. If you added some highlights to your models, it'd really make them pop, and not in the bad glue-all-over-your-face way either :D

I use a method I refer to as 'source highlighting' (feel free to correct me anybody) where I pick a point for light to be coming from (in my case, the light source is straight up) and highlight only the areas that would be touched by that light source. In the end, only half of the model is 'highlighted' but the end result is something of a gradient.

Ok, long time no update. I've been working 4 days on 1 day off since the 31st of August and have only been able to sit down and work on mini's the past couple of days. So without further adue, here is what I'm currently working on:

Image
What will be one of my 'Vre Body Guards, a normal XV8 'Ui, and a XV15/25 converted from the Firewarrior and XV25 sprue (Yes I stole the design from others on this board lol).

Image
Also I've been working on getting Shadowsun built and ready to prime :).

Hopefully I'll be making some more updates soon!

Thanks Mutanik :).

Also can a mod move this to the normal WIP forum since I've dropped out of the Painting challenge? Thanks :).

dude! the electric effects on those stealth suit look freakin sweet!!!
i was thinking about collecting tau but the one thing that put me off was the complexity of their paint schemes.
nice job on those!!!
