So its been a while, between real life & everything else I have made less progress than I would like, but nevertheless progress has been made!
Since I last posted I have spent some time trying to nail the way I will be painting the suits, having done firewarriors & a vehicle the suits were the last area that I needed to figure out how to apply the scheme to.
Here is the first Stealth team! Took a lot of trial and error to get it quite right, but I am really happy with the result. I wasn't sure whether to utilise the camo pattern on them, and settled on restricting it to the "shell" and the weapons, as they are the largest, flattest areas. On the larger suits I will likely apply it more liberally. Stealth Suits:
(It felt like a bit of a risk but I am really happy with how the glow effect turned out on the fusion blaster, I think it sets off the other colours nicely and will definitely use it elsewhere when appropriate)Painted So Far Group Shot:
(I am happy with the cohesiveness of the scheme so far, I was really worried as to how well it would translate from infantry, to vehicle, to suit, but it is working well so far)
In addition! I have been hard at work building new models! (which takes me an ungodly long time as I am super anal about mould lines, etc etc). This is my first 1000 points minus a HQ, which I have yet to build....Crisis Suits
(I really like dynamic flying poses, but I do not really like flying stands... What I have done here is use milliput to build up a base and then use one foot to make it look like the suit is thrusting around dynamically. They were really fun to make. Also - this new Crisis suit kit is a million times better than the old one!)Group Shot of the 1000pts built
Thanks for any comments, suggestions etc. It really is an enormous motivator and I sincerely appreciate anyone who takes the time to join me on this little journey!
