Up Close: Death Wing Terminators

An Image

So, I finally got around to finishing my first squad of Death Wing Terminators. I also got to finish a simple but effective lightbox last weekend. It's great to get good pics of your models, but cropping images and getting things up close can be very confronting!

I always wanted to do Death Wing, and to be honest they were a lot easier to paint than I thought! I love the color scheme but, as with most of my projects, I wanted to go for a more dirty, battle scarred look. I never like the standard cartoony GW way of painting.

I like the way the basic colors came out, but i'm not happy with the lightning effects on the claws. I tried to give them a blue wash to tone everything down but I had to remove it as everything became too smurfy...

I'm pretty happy with the slight gradient the models have, and I kept the bases pretty simple. Some textured paste, a small detail for each and some Army Painter tuft.

Overall i'm pretty happy, although I can see many things to do different next time. Maybe a subtle line highlight will help things, or maybe the masks can be crisper to make them stand out. Oh, and I pretty much love the Captain conversion, or rather simple head swap.

Let me know what you think!

Happy Wargaming.

I like the claws! Not that bad considering. The color scheme too, is simple and effective.subtle color variations work well too. A whole army done in this kind of desert color would be pretty sweet.

Testing out the new Light Box and the latest painted mini's at once. Seeing things up close can be confronting!
