So I lied to you guys. I started work on a squad of stealth suits recently and not the R'Varna that I just built. I've been having some issues with my compressor recently so I can't break out the airbrush.

WIP

I'd really like to do a digital camo scheme on these guys but I don't think I have the skill or patience to do so. If anyone has a link to a tutorial for infantry models I would love to take a look at it.

Well crap, I haven't updated this log in what... 3 months? Well with school coming to a close and me finishing moving apartments I now have a bit more time and desire to start working on my army again. Luckily with the new apartment, I now have a whole office space to dedicate to all of my hobby crap along with the fact that I'll be able to use my airbrush again!It's far from finished but it's a good start.

I understand you're pain. ::
With it getting warmer my compressor keeps getting too hot and the water trap can't keep up so until I get one with a tank I can't paint either :(
Looking forward to your progress again. :biggrin:

Alrighty! So I've had some slow progress still thanks to the move along with the fact that I adopted a puppy since the last update. However, I've completed a test scheme for my crisis suits and really don't know if I really care for it yet.

I also started work on my second ghostkeel with the same scheme as my stealth suits.

And finally pulled the trigger on a couple textured rolling pins from http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/ :D So I'll probably be working on rebasing all my infantry models and getting everything else ready to go in the near future. I know that I want them to resemble a ruined hive world but I haven't loved the height that the cork is providing me at the moment.

Until next time.

P.S.

If anyone wants to see what my process looks like written out here it is :fear:

My, my... Fantastic job! Your cadre looks really astonishing :D Care to share with me how you made this hexagonal pattern on your Devilfish? I plan to do something very similar with my Hammerheads.
Prosper, as Tau shall.

I appreciate it Denirosek! The hex pattern was achieved with Anarchy Models' HD stencil system found here... http://www.anarchymodels.co.uk/hd01---hexocam-3-p.asp

They're really just little stickers that you airbrush over that mask an underlying layer. I wasn't super happy with the result but that's my fault rather than the stencils. But I can't see myself buying another set of them as I feel as though I could easily make my own with a vinyl cutting machine like a cricket or silhouette which you can find at any big scrapbook store. It's quite possible that you know someone who owns one already and if not I know that my local Michaels has a scrapbook night where you're allowed to use the machine and you just might as well.

Alright so I've got the base done at this point and I'm just working on the last couple of details. I used a textured rolling pin from http://www.Greenstuffworld.com to create the brick pattern. I really wish I hadn't traded away all my extra IG bits a while back :( I might have to find someone with an extra bits bag.

In celebration of 8th edition finally coming out this past weekend I finally took the plunge and transferred all my GW paints into dropper bottles. :)
Wow, that took much longer than I thought it would. Overall I'm super happy with the outcome but I need to build a new rack system soon.

Ooh... Greenstuffworld... This may be a new favourite site for me...

That base looks great!
