|New vs Old color scheme|
The 40k v6 arrival has schaken the foundations of my Space Marine player convictions: goodbye powa-glove sergeants, pay back time for the energy weapon sergeants!
While painting a new sergeant equiped with an energy mass, I decided to start a repainting of all the other sergeants. Since I painted the Land Raider Crusader, I modified my paint scheme. The green highligts are clearer, reds are over worked and the visual impact is not negligible.
But the figurines painted since August 2008 do not benefit from this new scheme. I was inpired by an article entitled How to paint Dark Angels posted on the taleofpainters blog. Presenting an effective color scheme, I decided to apply it.
As you can see below, the new (but not complete yet) rendering seems britghter. And I'll have to apply it to the 3k+ points Dark Angel army already painted ... (I know, it's a crazy project)
|Death comes from above !|
The Stormtalon can finally go to war: the base is completed.
The crater is a nod to two armies I know. You can see the remains of a Word Bearers SMC helmet , and the other side of the crater, a Venerable Dreadnought Ultramarines leg.
Now that the flyin'
brick thing's painture is done, I'm almost finished with the base.
Just need to add some details and this flyer will be ready to storm the Emperor's ennemies !
The Stormtalon painting is complete. No offense meant to the "factory-released" supporters, I made him suffer the blister foam ravages.
Red additions on the missile launcher and turbines light up the flyer. Add a cutted foot and you have a Stormtalon in full action !
