Re: Miond's experimentals (R'Myr)

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4664/38455325770_6e65e0546e_c.jpg I decided to stay fairly simple with this one, replacing the waist with a moulded copy of the new XV8 one and replaced the neck with a small plastic ball as the model couldn't look up or down with the stock neck. https://farm5.staticf...

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP3

And five fingered hands! https://i.imgur.com/KknnkPm.jpg Did you cut off fingers to make more room and sculpt new ones (other than thumb and trigger finger)? I admire your patience in adding not just a pinky but potentially resculpting most of them for your Gue'Vesa, hat's off man :)

Re: Miond's experimentals (R'Alai)

With regards to paint, I'm thinking I should use more orange on XV9 suits since they are supposed to be 'in your face', grabbing attention. For the same reason I think I should go with more pristine white armour as well, no camouflage. Debating with myself whether I should do asymmetrical distributi...

Re: Miond's experimentals (Early colourscheme)

So, I finally decided on a colour-scheme for my units and figured I'd show it here, since this has pretty much become my project log anyway.. It's been over a decade since I last painted, happy to see it's not too difficult to get reasonable results :dead: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4667/3904517...

Re: Miond's experimentals (updates, pathfindes and commander WIP)

I do have 4k grit sanding pads, I just get tired of sanding (check the shark, been sanding for months), so most of what you see is done with my modelling files and little to no sanding yet. Many of my models need panel lines scored as well... At least, since I haven't quite settled on a colour schem...

You could stop by my thread for inspiration ;)
It's still in progress and I haven't had a lot of time for it lately, but I should get a fair bit done over Christmas.

Re: How to avoid identical Fireblades?

In addition to what the others have said, there's also the option of using the breacher helmet, and it fits better due to the smaller neck: https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2883/33586183940_bb62305eba_n.jpg https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2918/33930070126_1258562fe4_n.jpg I personally opted to convert ...

Re: Miond's experimentals (updates, pathfindes and commander WIP)

Thanks for the close-up [...] If that head fits a Riptide, I may have to pull the head off mine! :dead: You're welcome :) Scroll up to the top of this page, there's a few pics of my Yvahra with one of these heads. The head is a little bigger than the one the Yvahra is supplied with, and the overall...

Re: nix0n's "Battle Worn Cadre" [WIP log]

Clip pieces of sprue off to test with (consider pieces with detail such as lettering) you should have plenty left over :D
You could even basecoat and paint it first to see if the solution works.

Re: XV15 conversion help

You can either do so from the XV25 stealths by cutting off the cowl, clean up the chestpiece and stick on a firewarrior helmet like this: https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2905/33930026136_eca4009b15_n.jpg Or since you want an aesthetic closer to the original XV15s you could use longstrike as a base, r...

I recently bought the T'au re-release/collection and have been going through the stories by release date (Fire Warrior, Kill Team and Firecaste so far), and it's interesting to see the difference in care and skill from author to author.. Dal'yth seems to have largely female leadership/envoys even am...
