This is just a Quick Update. I have 2 Razorbacks mostly ready to paint. All that I have left is some file work and some gap filling. I have 2 of my veteran assault squad models put together and my oh my are they some good looking models. I was kinda on the fence when I bought em, but seeing them together has reassured me it was worth the Price tag.
Here is my Razorback with the Forge world Turret.
The door symbol is part of the Red Scorpions Icons pack. Most of them have a worn cracked look
Here is the door on the other Razorback
The Icons pack also came with some vehicle sized purity seals that look pretty good.
Both Turrets side by side
Both Tanks Side by side
The Vet Assault squad Models:
Here is the Forge World Jump pack from the rear
These will be fun to paint, with all the details
Here is the shot form the...................Dang it! I have to fill in that little hole.......... Front where you can see all the level of detail they added to the chest.
This entire Culln models is resin except for the arms. The model is so detailed I considered using it for some other character with artificer armor.
In the end I kept him a Sergent and shaved off his Mohawk. I didn't want him to look like Culln all grown up leading the Chapter. The power fist I did some hacking and filing to make it look better. Its still a little rough
Just some more shots of Culln
And the last one.
I am in Assemble mode right now so I probably wont be doing any painting this week. For a laughs I was wondering if I practiced it enough, would I be able to free hand some scorpions (its an idea I have for my land raider) I'm gonna keep trying for a while, and see if I can pull off whats in my head. I might have to find a stencil if anything. I don't draw well (the pic will show you want I mean) but a few years ago I would have said the same thing about sculpting Green Stuff and painting...... So I am gonna remain hopeful enough web tutoring will help me improve.
On the right of the paper was my first attempt with no reference materiel.. Epic fail. As we move left it starts to improve slightly so I have some hope.
The idea is to paint murals of scorpions on the sides of the raider. They don't have to be works of art, but they will need to be much better than what I am scrawling on paper right now. I hope by posting this pic I will shame myself into doing better. Feel free to laugh at (or offer help) me in the comments. No really, its ok.
