Dreadball – Marauder Team Commission

My first job of the new year, and it’s back to my beloved Marauders :D.

I have a client that’s looking to have a full team painted (5 Guards, Keeper, 8 Jacks and 2 prone markers), and is looking for them in the same colours as the Red Scorpions Space Marine Chapter. So over the last couple of days I’ve been working on the grey armour to get things started…

I achieved what I have here using the following paints:

Full coat of Ironhill Grey (P3)

Wash of Drakenhof Nightshade (GW)

Highlight of Ironhill Grey (P3)

Highlight of Codex Grey (GW)

Fine edge highlight of Fortress Grey (GW)

Now it’s onto a dirty yellow to get a wee bit of colour on these guys 🙂

Work on the jetbike has been complete, apart from one minor addition to the base, and here it is:

Today I have been working on the sword, cloak, animal skin and face on the White Scars jetbike. I managed to finish all of them off other than the face and some final touches to the animal skin and here are the results:

I’m particularly pleased with how the sword has turned out and chose the colours in order to match the Kor’sarro Khan I did earlier in the year for the same client. This was done by blening from blackto naggaroth purple, then to genestealer purple to white. In regards to the animal skin, I decided to do this in a semi leopard pattern, as I think this suits the White Scars more than a standard grey or brown affair you’d find on say a Space Wolf. I still think this needs a little work just to pull the colour out a little bit more. Next up is soem more work on the face. hair and beard as so far I have only laid down the base colours for these.

In other news I received a couple of MVPs as part payment for the Dreadball robots commission, so I’ll be painting these up alongside the Enforcer once the jetbike is done 😀

Warhammer 40k – White Scars Jetbike Painting Started

I’m happy to report that painting has begun on the White Scars jetbike, and this is what I have so far:

I’ve decided to leave the white until last, as it’s too easy to mess it up if done before many of the other details. Especially with a colour like red being involved.  So next up will be getting that aforementioned red looking a bit nicer than it is, and getting on with all the details 😀

I’m now onto my next commission which will be the Sameal on jetbike model converted up to be a counts as White Scars Captain.

I began work today on taking away any Dark Angels symbols and replacing them with White Scars lighting bolts. I decide the book across the front wouldn’t fit in, and after rummaging through the old bits box found the Space Marine combat shield to be a great fit, so one green stuff lightning bolt later, I had the perfect replacement. I also knew the torso would need to completely replaced, as there where too many DA symbols in hard to get to places, and wanted to make sure he looked a wee bit more unique.

Next up is the head, I’m thinking one of the marine heads with a top knot added and some good old mongolian-esque facial hair should make it look the part 😀

Warhammer 40k – Basilisk Finished!

Finished up on the Bassy today, and here she is:

Couldn’t come up with a good design for either side of the gun, so decided it was best to leave it blank. For now. If I do have some inspiration I may come back and add something at a later date.

I also got crackin’ into my next commission today, and here’s a wee sneak peak:

Added a few more touches to the Basilisk today:

Still think the armour needs a little bit more work, and would like to add a decal to either side of the gun as with the previous one, but am unsure as to what to do. I don’t want this to be a straight imitation of the last one, so I’m definitely not repeating the pattern. Have to have a good Thought Orgy and see what I can come up with 😀

Dreadball – DBR7 Complete!

Popped the last few details onto DBR7 this afternoon. Added a few things to the back, as the photos from yesterday showed it as a little bare, also took the opportunity to clean up a few of the white sections. Pleased with the results, and got to thinking whilst painting him how he would make an excellent Coaching Staff for the robot team :). Anyway, onto photos:
