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 😀

Warhammer 40k – White Scars Jetbike Construction Complete!

Finished the final wee details required for the construction of the jetbike, such as adding the head, a few tweeks on the positioning on the right arm and a wee bit of fur wrapped around the torso. And here he is:

Dreadball – Silver Centurions Almost Done!

With the final few details added today it’s just the bases and the threat markings on the clear hex(not sure what I’m doing with that yet) on the Centurions to do. Here’s how they are looking without that:

As you may have noticed I decided to add some Dreadball gloves to the Strikers and the Jacks, this was done with some plastic pipettes I had laying about with some careful cutting , and a wee touch of paint.

Next up, as I’ve said is the bases. These are gonna be a rough metal to match the pitch design I threw together this afternoon. This is the as-yet unnamed(may have to be the Colosseum?) home of the Silver Centurions:

Would love to hear what you folks think?

Dreadball – More Silver Centurions!

Continued work on the Silver Centurions this morning, and with some helpful suggestions on another colour decided to do a few bits and pieces in gold. I also took the chance to add a couple of extra glowy bits :D. Just on the left hand of the strikers, and on the several studs on the Guards armour. Anyway, here they are:

For now its off to get in a few more league games at the Sunday meet up, and I’ll let you know how the Slammers get on 🙂

 

 

Dreadball – Silver Centurions Progress

The weekend has arrived so its onto painting some of my own stuff, and today I’ve made a wee bit of progress on the Centurions:

I’ve worked up the armour with some highlights to the desired colour as well as adding the glowy blue bits I want on them. The only other part I know what I’m doing with is the number panel. This will be a blue version of the digital display seen on the Gamma Slammers. I still think I need something else on these guys to really make ’em pop, and other than doing more glowy blue bits, I’m at a loss as to what. Any ideas from you readers out there would be greatly appreciated 😀

I also did a wee bit more to the logo and am happy to say this should be the final design. Let me know what you think?

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 Progress

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 😀
