ZainNL's Vior'la

Post#1 » Jun 01 2016 02:26

Hey guys,

Figured I'd post here what I already have.. I'm still new at this
and nearly came to the point where I'd have switched to using
the Farsight color scheme, because.. White. Hardest thing for
me is to get a good, flat Ulthuan Gray layer on the units.. But,
here they are.

Advice is, more than welcome :) (I have also started using a wet
palette*)

Sky Ray, my first unit I painted. The antenna broke, but I'm not
sure on how I'm going to make it into good-looking battle damage.

Shieldline, fun to paint!

Strike team, these took ages.. The one with the two-guns
is called Shas'ui Ram'bo, since he singlehandedly destroyed an Eldar
flyer by rolling 3 consecutive sixes.

It's especially notable on the fire warriors, but they were kind-of overcoated.
Didn't have my coat station back then, so I was forced to spraycoat from 5cm
away due to heavy winds -_-


EDIT: they should have correct sizes now. If not, the old, bigger ones are still in your cache :)

@Abraxus: yeah, the size annoyed me as well. I'm just going to link to them.
I have been struggling real hard with Ulthuan Gray (even on wet palette) since
the color has the tendency to clot up REAL fast and sadly.. My brush control isn't
up to the point where I can wiggle-in between the parts without touching on the
other. Easily +-40% of the time I used on the models was spent on repairing
the colors.

@SniperTau: thanks, I use Khorne Red with Wazdakka Red for highlights :)

Love the colour scheme! The white looks great. Have you got shots of that battlesuit from other angles to get a better look at the pose? Bit I'm a fan of any battlesuit with CIB and FB!

Thanks :) I'll make some more when I get home tonight, it's a default pose though (one of the first suits I assembled).

Fusion Blaster + CIB ftw! Even though I'm thinking about replacing CIBs with Missile Pods since the bits are expensive. :(

Anyway are you using him as crisis? It's the commander model if I'm not mistaken.

Well I got a CIB with the Commander package and figured it'd be cool. Kind-of went booklet instructions on him, but I really like the setup. In a game on saturday he managed to wipe a Venom in 1 shot with his FB, then taking down 2/3 guys with the CIB..

I guess you mean Crisis or Coldstar? I figured the Coldstar suit is a bit pricey in terms of points and well.. I kinda like this one more. (altough I might get a Coldstar later on)

No I really meant crisis or commander as in crisis suit unit or commander since you didn't add any info.
