    Default August's Imperial Fists WIP

    Hey, new to the forums. I'm working on an Imperial Fists army and uper eager to have the help of the coolmini community. I've used the site as a reference guide to learn how to paint and recognize your authority in all things good and holy. So C&C is enormously appreciated.

    Here's some work I've done so far on a Tactical Squad. I'm planning to shave off the squad-numbers on the knees and replace them with a Company Insignia from the custom decals I'm working on designing. My hope is to have one of the later units I do, maybe a Sternguard or Terminator squad, worth posting on the image system here.

    They style I'm going for is inspired by the Imperial Fists by Dark Art Miniatures and Aliaume, both on this site. They rock.















    and a WIP of some custom decals:

    I like Your yellows and even though I usually think that amount of battle damage to be over done I think you've pulled it of nicely

    Wauv...they are nice, but just a little to much battle damage they look too fake

    Very nice work.

    It's good to see that my Imperial Fist inspired you.

    Just 2 things :

    - Focus more chiped paint on the edges
    - Dilutes a little more your rust streaks and makes more passages with you brush.

    Agree with this....great minis man, just the rust streaks that stood out to me. Your ink/wash seems quite heavy in areas too but overall a super looking unit.

    Lets see some more!!!

    Cheers

    I love the battle damage, it's how I imagined them to look defending the Emperors palace! I'd loved to see them based and a full army of them and what you can do with a tank! Very well done!
