    Congrats! Good work. Next steps is to try out washes and highlighting and drilling the gun nozzle hole (wasn't seen in the pic, but I'm guessing you haven't done one?). Interestingly the plain white base would work out quite nicely on a snowy gameboard... keep it up.

    They look very good for first minis. The lighting in the pics is either weird, or the paint is shiny. Either way, if you haven't already, you should give them a good spray of gloss varnish (twice), then matt varnish (for strength, then making it pretty).

    Must be the pic I suppose. What did you use for the wash (can't make it out in the picture)?

    wel i use red wash on armour, black wash on silver parts(guns and skulls), green wash on eyes, sephia and mud wash on wax seal. pretty much yeah. i must admit the pictures don't do them justice. i will try and get some better pictures up. i must admit im quite proud of them since they are my first ever model. i have also noticed i missed the edges on the arrow sign on its shoulder. will fix that

    Nice one. I'm not sure it really was three months for 5 marines but even so it's better to be capable and speed up than produce lots of bad minis fast (I know, I know... palpable hypocrisy here).

    The red is really nice and strong- often tricky to achieve with first models. I'm pleased you kept up the work on that to get the good result.

    Your work on neat edges and black lines has paid off too- that's something you definately did for yourself with no help from me!

    Clever use of the washes has paid off on the detail too. Good call on the turqouise on the seal. I know I wasn't sure it would work but it paid off well- again, good call.

    Bit more work this week and you should have the combat squad done. You'll be amazed how much quicker the next five will go, even if it includes the serg and variant weapons!

    And never forget that photos always, always make your mistakes glaringly obvious. Some stuff you'll never see until it's posted online, at which point it becomes really apparent.


    Get the rest of the combat squad to the same level and I'm sure i can manage some rep. So far though, some of the best 'my first minis' I've seen in a while.



    EDIT: Yeah, there's not a lot of highlighting on the armour (as opposed to shading)- we'll get on to that. They are a hint shiny IRL too so we can look at a varnish to tone it down or we can find some Dullcote. I'll talk to you about it next time I'm in the shop.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
