Wow, it has been a long time since I posted anything on here! I lurk a lot, but contributions have been lacking.
Sorry for any unanswered questions left on this dusty old thread, and for the broken photo links. I will try to find the old photos, upload them to G+/Picasa and resurrect them, and answer the questions when I work out to what they are referring!
Life has been a bit up and down in the last year and a bit. I am, however, finally settled, and in a new house with a newly fitted out painting room/loft so I have been returning to some long neglected hobbies, 40k being one of them.
I do still have (most) of my old models, but I have never been sold on the light blue colour scheme.
So I've decided to start a new cadre, tundra themed this time.A Skyray, repainted from a light blue basecoat. It's not 100% finished, got some markings to add and some custom Fi'rios decals to make and add yet.Test firewarrior with my buddies tundra themed guard sergeant. He was initially primed in a tamiya grey, and for some reason i had trouble getting the white to cover. Moderately happy with him nonetheless! Thumbnails of my small 'big' project of the month. I decided to enter my local GW store's monthly painting competition. Last months dominated by chaos marines, so I decided to represent for the Greater Good. Added an honour blade from an honour guard ethereal I had lying around, and am now trying my hand at some layering and blending. I will leave it up to you guys who successful I have been so far!
All my inspiration is from you guys on ATT; I have been lurking the painting, project logs and gallery forums for a couple of months looking for ideas and tips!
I have 2 firewarrior teams, an XV81, an XV8, a Piranha and a couple of XV15 stealth suits to paint. Oh, and two Remora's. I hope to have photos dribble in over the next few weeks/months. I am trying my best to improve my painting, so any criticisms are welcome! It isn't easy painting white, so I have been reading a few threads regarding getting a good finish and realistic highlighting.
I also hope you guys won't mind if I throw some fluff in from time to time. Writing is another long neglected hobby, and I feel some of my flair has atrophied in the last 2 years :S
