yep, it's about time i got one of these started, very few of you may know that i'll be quitting wargaming sometime (granted i may participate in large events such as apocalypse games for 40k) but i never let a project go unfinished, so i shall be noting my painting progress in this thread, now i do have ALOT of things to paint and i mean alot, although i will be buying more to paint for a while, if anything to finish of every army i started (including my flames of war armies)

so here we go, crysbat's wip thread, first off i think i should just show you my kasrkins (i'll be painting another 5 next month for the painting deathmatch), i just want to note that the sergeant's sword isn't like that in real life, but without further ado, my kasrkins:

Image

now these guys were painting without any highlighting, as i really am not the best at highlighting, which is a shame as the main army i have in 40k is of course my dark eldar, now as you can see from this picture of said dark eldar, i can't highlight well, at all, i've tried it in layers from dark to bright but it doesn't help, i just can't highlight, almost everything else (except for osl) i can do to a decent level.

Image

but yes, from these two sets of models you should be able to tell my standard of painting, nothing i'd call above tabletop, but good enough to use (i refuse to use unpainted models, they have to be at least primed before i consider using them) but anyway, this shall be my wip thread and i promise to actually keep it updated, along with getting some smaller pictures sometime

ok, so this is what i have finished for today, and probably for this month, unfortunatly i've come down very badly on the ill chart and work is piling up because of days off, so i might not be able to get that much painting/building done, but nonetheless, here is what i have done for today:

Image

as you can see, work has begun on the raven, mandrakes ork bike and arena champion all built and some warriors in the back.

now for a close look at the raven, it is of course still in the progress of being done, namely by putting on more layers of desert colours (fluff wise the ravens in my army are for ambushing other jet fighter and what not) and improving/dulling the metal colours, still, the raven:

Image
Image

as i said, a work in progress, but it shalll be completed in some time.
thanks for looking.

Looking good dude! I don't think your HL's are as bad as you think they are. Just a little practice and they could be perfect. Just keep at it. :wink:

Is the raven a FW kit?

well the highlighting doesn't look AS bad in real life, but it's definatly nowehere near what i've seen some people do and it's not my best highlighting, but still, i do have intent on improving my painting by a fair bit more and yes, the raven is a FW kit, not the most detailed FW kit, but still

ok, little update, i dropped the work on the raven for a bit in exchange for beginning another flying vehicle (that being a valkyrie, i loves them so muchly T~T) and i've "finished" my urien rakarth, he's coloured a white-ish colour as that's the colour my heamonculi are going to be and what with his being a unique character, i gave him a base, not the best one, but still.

first off, urien rakarth (i can guarantee you those black/white bits aren't there in real life, i think my camera/laptop might have eaten the image a bit)

Image


and urian and the valkyrie in progress (begun painting one wing, going to pain the bits in this then build and paint the rest)

Image

ok, another update, unfortunatly lately i've come down with a cold which my mum is going paranoid about and saying i may have pneumonia (she's trying to get me to wear a coat as i never do) but i have been working on some stuff, first off i got A wing done to a degree on the valkyrie, aswell as the inside of the transport bay being started on; bought some sternguard for my marines and finished one of them, aswell as "finishing" 3 female dark eldar warriors and i got a smidge on the raven done. And now the MASSIVE pictures (i feel too ill to edit them i'm afraid) :

first off, everything i've been working on, the squad at the front are the beginning of my female dark eldar warrior squad (fluff wise the squads in my kabal are limited to all male or all female)
Image

the first female warrior (for some reason my camera felt like blurring it up) :
Image

now, with this one, i didn't realize that i had FORGOT to put on the dark blue base (i undercoat them chaos black then put on a coat of a dark blue) so once i had finished painting and taken a photograph, i felt like kicking myself, hopefully i'll repaint them one day:
Image

don't judge me on this one, the paint went horrible and the face, i don't even know what happened to the face, or why the cloth thing is shining >.> ech, so many errors, please don't mention the metal either... like i said, the paint went horrible and for some reason i couldn't do anything right with it:
Image

now, i quite like this guy, gave me a break from painting so much blue and gave me a break from thin models, no highlighting needed either (thank the good guy in charge) although i did make some mistakes, such as the yellow paint on the backpack, although i will re-visit this guy and fix those mistakes, aswell as sorting the writing out on his shoulder pad (originally it was going to be teon, but the o and n messed up) but without further ado, the beggining of me sterngaurd:

Image

i'm getting alot of spare time on my hands these days now (mainly due to being ill so much >.>) so i should be getting alot more painted up, i'd quite like it if anyone could give me c + c on the painting, good bad or ugly i don't care, also if anyone does think about asking: i NEVER use gloss varnish, only matt varnish, the only exception to this is my marines where i use gloss varnish on their eyes and nothing else, so the shine is probably from the camera. I've also finished my lelith hespirax model, but i need to work on it's base, then i'm starting on the rest of my storm troopers and valkyrie side by side, but right now i'm feel like throwing up, so my painting isn't at it's best...

I may just burn that third warrior....

well, trying is what it's all about ^_^ just to say those aren't the kasrkin i'm using in our match, the ones i'm using are the looking down ones, the flamer and the looking forward ones, so far the flamer is partially done (need to paint his boots, gloss his visor and add a few more washes/drybrushes aswell as some smaller things such as buttons and wires.

edit: i believe i should explain the colour schemes so rather than double post i'll do it in this thread, for the IG, as some of you may know my army is called the city breakers and as the name suggests, they fight in cities quite often, hence the grey aurmour, as for the dark eldar, my kabal is called the kabal of weeping sorrows and they were around when blue was my favourite colour and i painted everything blue, now i don't pain much blue things except for these guys as the dark blue/light blue highlighting seemed to make the models look ok enough to properly use and i can' abandon a paint scheme so easily on my longest running army.

ok guys, last update for a while probably, alot of things have gone wrong lately for me and that means i can't paint anything for a while as i need to find a place to stay and a part time job, so no painting for a while probably, i would quite like it if i could have some really harsh criticism as i want to improve my painting when i can do it again, so seriously, nit pick at every error i made.

first off i have 5/10 wyches started on (if i can get the other 5 done before the end of january then i'll be re-entering the death match, although i doubt it)

the squad:
Image

from the image you should be able to figure out my paint scheme for my wych cult, where as before i had a red esque one, this time i'm going for one i saw on the gw website a bit ago and editing it slightly

so now i'm going to show an image of pretty much a stage by stage for the wyches, from the on with least work to the one with most work, please note that none of them are finished.
Image
Image
next one got a bit messed up whilst i resized the image, so it's the wrong way around
Image
Image
and the hekatrix, who's closest to being finished
Image


now aside from the wyches i've done a smidge of work on the sterngaurd, here's the 4 unfinished ones
Image
and the two which actually have some thing more than a spray on them
Image
Image

and the kasrkin i'm working on (if i can finish these then i'll also re-enter the painting deathmatch with IGfanatic)
Image
the one closest to being finished, sorry about blurry picture
Image

and i got the last mandrake finished
Image


now please, harsh criticism is wanted, wether it's pointing out every flaw i made or saying that some colours don't work with each other, i would love some criticism.

Until my next update/post i'll see you guys around.

Sorry to hear that you can't participate in anything for awhile.
On the critsicm front i don't think the wyches pistol paint sceme looks non-too good. That's about it.
