I very glad you post your progress, its fun to follow along!


Glad you enjoy my posts! I benefit from the steady feedback as well.

Truth be told, I was afraid for a little bit that I was posting a bit too often, since other projects weren't updated as often I was updating mine. Glad to hear that's not the case. :)

Can't say I'm a fan of that color scheme of yours, however you should definiely either leave the bases black or do proper basing. You really need the contrast.

Definitely not keep it up! If I had as much hobby time as I liked I'd be posting all the time :D

Yeah, the bases are definitely just a placeholder. The purple bases were a side effect of the spray-priming process. I'm thinking of going for a darker color scheme for the proper bases once the squad is finished. Druchii Violet, perhaps?

The colors are really cool! Although as a color scheme sure looks really different. I like how you also decided on painting the visor in another color. Those ones are a pain to get straight with neat lines.
The DS8 turret looks fantastic! I love to look of it with those colors!

Also just keep posting as much as you need! Myself, I post as much as I need to keep myself on track no matter if the progress is slow or people won't care anymore. Such logging keeps me motivated. So keep on posting some good stuff!
Cheers!

Update:

So, I finally got the rest of the squad basecoated, then gave them a wash with Strongtone Quickshade to darken the details. Then I went back over the raised areas with the original Alien Purple or Lava Orange as a rough highlight, and I've started doing edge highlights with a 3:1 mixture of Alien Purple and Matte White (makes a nice lavender color).

I only got three men in before I noticed myself getting sloppy and tired, so I called it a night. I'll finish the purple edge highlights, then come back and do the same with the Orange.

I think I need to do a little drybrushing on the Necromancer Cloak to highlight it a bit too. You guys argee?

Anyway, without further ado, here are some pictures of my progress:
