    Been working on highlighting the black without making it gray.
    What do you think?

    Just a heads up. I got some shopping to do, and I saw these really neat looking name plates.
    Can you guys do a separate shoulder pad with the Chapter's symbol on it?
    It shouldn't be difficult to find spares, but they would look great on a nameplate under each figure's position on the shelves.
    I'll be sending this in a PM too.

    This separate pad, you want it to be of the new kind, those that are detailed om the rims or of the older pads?

    As nondescript as you can find.
    One of the plain ones.

    If you want one of the basic ones, I can send it out to you...LOL

    Currently working on that Night Lord. Have no fear. Or have fear... Whichever works best for you. Trying to figure out how the f*ck i'm going to get those nice midnight sheens without making it look like a really dark ultra smurf... I think I have a plaaaaaan.

    Ed: Also had to cut off the little skull on the helmet. Apparently they painted the front of their helmets like skulls, so skulls on skulls...yeah. Also realising all this freehand will test my patience lol, chapter badge, lighting strikes... Not even sure what to do for a tangible company marking yet. Any nod in the right direction with that would be appreciated. On the other hand, a tidy little challenge to be had here.

    It is subtle. I have used a VERY dark gray. And VERY thin layers.
    The lightbox obliterated any trace of the subtlety. Now it just looks flat.
    BUT it doesn't look gray...so there is that.
    It's only the first shade up from straight black...patience mang!

    Nope. I want the other one that way.
    I have two black armored Chapters.
    Dark Angels and Iron Hands.
    I am going to go with the deep blue on the Iron Hands.

    Patience....If I can refrain from my impatience and keep working on this slowly...it will look good without blue or green.
    I don't want to use green because I don't want it to look even remotely like the post-heresy color-scheme.
    I am saving blue for the Iron Hands.

    You'll see. It's been a long time since I've done anything bnetter than table-top, so I am concentrating and being overly careful.

    I know.
    This is the third attempt.
    Thankfully I'm using SUPER thinned stages...too many more and I'll have to strip [the mini] and start over.

    Just some pics and proof I have actually been doing something and not sitting about on my arse saying I am. Can't tell if the pics are up to much since my comp is being a bit of a swine with graphics issues. In traditional WIP fashion, it's currently a bit of a mess, have no fear, it'll emerge eventually like a beauuuutiful butterfly...or moth. Probably a moth.

    <Bump>
    Still waiting on the majority of participants to respond.
    I need to be sure everyone is working.
    If you can't show progress, or at least respond, I may need to find new participants.
