    plastic SoB's would be cool...
    May should be around the time i sell off my old metals, too, save for a few of the coolest Sister Superior sculpts...
    i definitely want to paint some Nuns with guns...

    here is stage 2 of the Ultramarines scheme step- by-step...

    first i gave all of the panels a heavy wash of P3 Khador Red Highlight and Vallejo Smoke mixed about 6-1 and a couple drops of water, and then thin the mix a little more to wash the steels (pic 1)...
    then i come back with the black and blue, and clean up all the lines (Pic 2)...
    next, i wash all of the rust with a pure wash of Vallejo Smoke cut with a few drops of water, thin it a bit more again to wash the steel, and put on the decals (Pic 3)...
    finally, i sponge all the edges, metals, and some of the flat panels, with P3 Pig Iron (Pic 4)...






    four more pics to come tomorrow...
    i hope they are helpful...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    stage 3 of the Ultramarines step-by-step...

    since step 8 showed the main body of the vehicle finished, we move on to some of the details...

    the cockpit canopy was basecoated with P3 Bloodstone, while the eagle is given a base of P3 Molten Bronze (Pic 1)...
    the next layer is P3 Khador Red Highlight for the canopy, and the bronze is given a verdigris wash of P3 Meridius Blue and P3 Iosan Green mixed 2-1 (Pic 2)...
    the final layer is Khador Red Highlight and P3 Heartfire mixed 3-1 (Pic 3)...
    the Tyranid reflections are painted with P3 Greatcoat Grey and P3 Thamar Black mixed 3-1 (Pic 4)...






    more to come ...
    i hope this was helpful...

    Seems like a fast workflow.

    thanks, Meph...
    it's getting quicker...

    here is stage 4 of the Ultramarines step-by-step...

    this time, it's the lights...
    they start with a basecoat of P3 Sanguine Base, one of my favorite colors, and one that covers black really well (Pic1)...
    next is pure P3 Skorne Red (Pic 2)...
    the final layer is pure P3 Khador Red Base, and at this point i gave the multi-melta barrels a wash of P3 Beaten Purple, about halfway up the muzzles(Pic3)...
    after a thin wash of P3 Thamar Black, to tidy things up, a dot of black is painted into the top right of the really rounded lenses, followed by a finer dot of P3 Morrow White...
    very quick, but effective enough...






    up next, the Tyranid Hunters logo

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    Throwback Thursday again, at least for another hour here...

    this week it is one of Knight models 35mm minis...
    Han Solo, the first mini i finished in 2014...
    i had a lot of fun painting this guy...
    the little ones are a lot more forgiving than the 72mm versions...
    it's a shame that KM was not able to renew the Star Wars license...
    they did a great job on these sculpts...

    hey CMON...

    here is stage 5 of the Ultramarines scheme step-by-step...
    this time, it's the Tyranid Hunters logo...

    first, i sketched out the design on a panel with a blue ball point pen...
    i found that this will not scratch the paint like a pencil can...
    unfortunately, this did not photograph well at all...
    then i blocked in the design with P3 Greatcoat Grey, which covers black really well...
    being a stoner, i totally forgot to photograph this stage (Doh!!!)...
    next, i painted a solid layer of P3 Trollblood Highlight (Pic 1)...
    then i painted a layer of Trollblood Highlight and P3 Morrow White mixed 1-1 (Pic 2)...
    this is my final background color...
    the outline and details are painted with pure P3 Cygnar Blue Highlight (Pic 3)...
    finally, P3 Thamar Black is sponged on for chipping (Pic 4)...






    that is it for the colors that are common across all of the army...
    next up, how i painted the Stormravens' bases...

    For me, as a returning mini painter (26 years ago!), this thread has been a great inspiration to up my game and aspire to try new techniques. Many thanks for taking the time to post this excellant material.
    You know I may even get my board back out too..

    Many thanks

    thanks, guys...

    since this is a WIP thread, i guess i should how off some works in progress, instead of so many finished models...

    here is the Vindicator squadron i am finishing up at the moment...
    now that the main bodies of the vehicles are done, i am finishing up the accessories...
    while i love the look of the Vindi, it is the siege shield that really completes the iconic look of this tank...
    right now they look like a lion without a mane, a bit sad and unintimidating...



    i hope everyone had a nice weekend...

    cheers

    how about now, Meph...
    an even scarier prospect, no???

    after a week away, i am back in action...
    the Vindicators are done, and i really enjoyed painting up those siege shields...
    i know the hazard stripe pattern has been done before, but this was just too neat a little touch to pass up...
    sometimes, when an idea is so good, you just have to steal it...

    hey CMON...

    Throwback Thursday again...
    taking it back to 2009/2010...
    this is the Imperial Guard Lord Commissar, a great sculpt, with a ton of character in the face...
    this is #4 in the "Gamer's Series", where i would recreate the GW studio paintjobs, for sale...
    while i am moving past the 'Eavy Metal style, i think that copying stand-out paintjobs from the different studios is a great way to build the skills...
    GW's style is great for building a really solid foundation to painting techniques...

    hey CMON...

    here is the first half of the step-by-step for the Ultramarines basing...
    i start with a black undercoat, as usual, and as you can see from the pic, i build up the rubble a bit where the flying stand will go, so it is wedged in nice and snug when the base is finished (Pic 1)...
    the rubble is then given a basecoat of P3 Greatcoat Grey (Pic 2)...
    next, it is given a heavy wash of GW Leviathan Purple wash, from the 2007 set (Pic 3)...
    the first highlight on the rubble is a drybrush of P3 Trollblood Highlight (Pic 4)...






    the second half of the base will be up tomorrow...

    hey CMON...

    here is the second half of my Ultramarines basing step-by-step...

    the bronze ruins are given a basecoat of P3 Molten Bronze (Pic 1)...
    then these parts are given a heavy wash of my verdigris mix, a 2-1 combo of P3 Meridius Blue and P3 Iosan Green, being sure to let a little run onto the ground (Pic 2)...
    next, i sponge a layer of the bronze on, leaving the verdigris in the recesses, and then give the rubble a drybrush of P3 Underbelly Blue (Pic 3)...
    finally, i glue on the flying stand, and clean up the rim of the base with P3 Thamar Black (Pic 4)...
    very simple, but effective...
    i like that the ruins at the front draws the eye away from the massive plastic stand, but doesn't distract from the model...

    hey CMON...

    it is Throwback Thursday in Facebooklandia again...
    this week i'm throwing it back to 2009, to a mini painted for an online contest...
    Pedro Kanter, Chapter Master of the Crimson Fists Space Marine Chapter...
    this was the first mini where my line highliting got really tight, and i got the GW 'Eavy Metal studio style down pat...
    after a couple of days of really close voting, against a very well painted Ork Warboss, this mini won...

    The wash of leviathan purple on the base really adds some depth. Nice.

    Fantastic piece! I'm considering doing these throwbacks myself... though, not to show off fab stuff, but to give people something to laugh at. :P

    @KruleBear: i thing sand and rubble really needs a wash after the basecoat to throw some depth back in the base...
    the basecoat runs into the crevices, because, unlike the highlights, i don't drybrush on the basecoat...

    @oistene: thanks, bud...
    i'll eventually get to the laughable old paintjobs, too

    Happy Valentine's Day, CMON...
    i hope everybody had a good one...

    i finally got around to editing the Ultramarines Vindicator Linebreaker Squadron pics...
    here is the middle one of the trio...
    i had fun doing the hazard stripes on this one, and the black siege shield...
    black looks menacing, and frames the winged swords nicely...
    this is also the only one where i put the spare shell on the back...
    the red warhead fits in with the client's scheme of blue, black, bronze, and red, and is also used on one of the real-world artillery rounds...

    hey CMON...

    time to put the WIP's back in the WIP thread...
    here are the next two tanks on deck...
    the client said that all of the tanks, so far, were starting to look to similar, so here is a bit of a change from the previous pieces...
    the Rhino will be Cassius' personal ride, and the Predator is being painted as if it is drawn from the 3rd Company armory, since they fight alongside the Tyranid Hunters...
    the trick will be making this tank not look like a Crimson Fists vehicle...

    hey CMON...

    the tanks are coming along...
    here, all of the basecoats have been cleaned up after the lining stage...
    now it is time to start working on the details...

    these are the last two vehicles in the queue, and then it is on to a few of the character models...
