A friend of mine paints metalica Skitarii as well and he keeps cursing the white color scheme...it's the last time he painted something white he says. Then again he wanted to start TSons next but keeps finding excuses to continue with Skitarii/AdMech so i guess it's not THAT bad after all. :D

Every time I put brush to model I curse myself for choosing white and vow to never again play a white army. After about 10 minutes I get into a groove, and then when I put the model down I'm very proud of the result and deem that the pain was worth the outcome. This then repeats when I grab the next model.

Nice Admech!

Love the bases they store bought?

I actually like painting white a lot more now, its Orange that I curse at when I have to paint it.

" Do something different I said! Challenge myself I said! Oranage! Why!! Orange! "

Used to be this way with white...

The large round and oval are bought from Elrik's Hobbies, the 25mm bases shown I made myself from chunks of a Devilfish kit. I have some WIP 25mm bases from Elrik's as well which I have for my yet unpainted AdMech, and to swap out some of the more bland bases on these guys.

I have seen that article before, thanks for the shoutout. My stuff appears in weird places, like the Ironmaster wiki for some strange reason.

Arrow!

Is this yours cause I have not seen it on ATT. Also this guy says it's made by some Tau Crisis dude but the ripetide is clearly yours brother.

Yeah, I've seen those. He emailed me copies when he made them for my input.
Tau-Crisis is my DeviantArt account.

Long time, no visit.
Short update today but I have made a few changes to my Shapeways shop. I have changed the jet pack pieces to now hide the cleaning hole behind the screw bit, and the screw now pops into the hole and conceals it completely. This addresses a long-standing complaint I had with the models.

I also have Fire Warrior sized shoulder pads with different septs, or even blank emblems on them. Several people asked for these at AdeptiCon, so I added them. I'm working on a set of the overlap pads, but they're currently only available in Farsight and blank form. I plan to do breacher themed ones as well.
