Ok this is the first mini for the upcoming commissioned army
The army consists of:
1 autocannon team
2 heavy bolter teams
1 veteran lascannon team
1 company commander
1 officer of the fleet
1 master of the ordnance
1 Nork Dedogg (Chaos spawn)
1 Ironhand Straken
1 Sly Marbo
1 captain Al'rahem
Im painting them in batches of 10 minis, so will show some more soon
The colour choice is not mine tho'
neat. I always like corrupted good armies. One thing though. The guy looks to clean. Rebel gaurdsmen are less off than traitor marines. And just from pictures and black library books corrupted guard and cultist seem to be dirty a often mutated to some degree.
But as you said its commission so what ever your customer wants.
And yes more!
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
Ditto! Nice choice of colours and use of parts. Plus I love the skin tone!
2500 points of Empire for ToXG: Points painted for month 4: 0 Points painted overall: 510
The leaders of the world may worship the dark powers but that doesn't mean they have lost their sense of aesthetics. If they have the factories to be producing fresh munitions then why not nice clean uniforms?
I think black and red is a great combo, but I'd love to see how you are applying it to the vehicles.
Awesome work man, if you don't mind me asking, how did you go about painting that figure and what paints did you use?
When in deadly danger,
When beset by doubt,
Run in little circles,
Wave your arms and shout.

I like the scheme, the orange-red looks great as a contrast to the black. I like the skin, its not too obvious and outlandish but it works with the rest of the mini. Nice smooth painting as well. Are you going to do any 'corruption' to their uniform or anything?
If they werent glued I would do the bases differently... I'm painting on a white basecoat since I would die painting orange... So the base is prepared before basecoating - some wood glue + very thin sand. Than painted white , than washed over with vallejo model colour burnt umber in several layers + some cobra leather washes here and there - and voila - the first squad is ready - minor bugfixes left, and squad markings.
Ok 4 regular squads left - I'm not able to paint all the eyes, and the faces ... - can't do them good, and don't want to mess up the minis dissasembling them still they should look good on the tabletop. Will do veterans / heroes better.
Estimated Infantry time - 2-3 days per squad circa 4 hours a day.
