Hell o there..
Well to force myself to keep painting a bit more often here it goes... the links in this post link to the paintings in the thread..
I'm trying to paint both those armies more or less at the same time:
+++ SM & DH +++

GKT-BC, GKs and Pedro count as (Ignis - Paintingjournal)
Tactical Squad, and Dread Sneak Peak (Ignis - Paintingjournal)
Advice needed (Ignis - Paintingjournal)
Sternguard Conversions (not painted yet) (Ignis - Paintingjournal)
(Ignis - Paintingjournal)NEW!! Dreadnought
+++ CSM +++ (currently nothing happens with them)
CSM list (list in another thread) (1750 Tzeentchy list)
DemonPrince nr1: WIP
++ this post will get an update every time I upload some pics with a reference link ++

Okej here we go:
Pic 1: Here the build up
Pic 2: A closer pic (the flash makes the breast plate look weird)
Pic 3: This testing models is what lead to the current sceme:
Pic 4: And the DemonHunter Color-scheme:
Pic 5: My HQ is still WIP but here a small reminder (there was a thread about him since its my first conversion)
Ideas, feedback and such is very welcome, looking forward to get better at painting with new hints and tips, those are my first painted models over.

Ignis, I don't know if it's just me but that white 1k son in the middle has a really eye catching scheme. Not that it seems to much like a 1k son's scheme, but it just really pops.
Other than that, I really like how you use the greens on your models, as they appear very bold.
On the other hand, the red and gold on the helmet things does seem kind of dull, like maybe a brighter version of both the colors would suit you better.
Hej BIGphil22X, thanks for the feedback.
Thing with the White is that I like it a lot, and it´s simple as hell,
this model that you see is just primed and then one layer green and one layer gold on a few places,
thing about how nice that would really propper painted.
But I don´t think it´s 1ks neither, nor any other army really.. not that Grim and such... it´s a shame really, but I certainly will keep it in mind and hope to use it another day.
Regarding the Red/Gold on the helmet, just brighten it up or use something else?
Any feedback on the draft of the DH?
Well I've finally sat down and started painting again... my DH list changed quite a lot since last time, i use them as SM allies now,
read more about that here: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ml#post1664226
Fluff wise there are going to be Exorcists, or a splinter fraction of those anyways, haven't decided that part yet.
Here is the GKT-BC anyways:
The SM-HQ (pedro count as)
I used a emperors champ model and the pedro model, to get the stormbolter and the crusader helmet,
all my models will have that type of helmets:
Model with Incinerator:
I will have to change a few things on the bases so they are still slightly WIP...
Next up will be the Tactical Squad (DA Vet bodies, BT crusader helmets)
Feedback is very welcome.

I finally got the Tactical Squad done, well a few details a still missing, but for now they are gonna do..
They are set together from DA Vets with BT Crusader Helmets, the Champ got a Chaos fist, just because it looks awesome.
Next up will be those two (their arms are magnetized):
Or my Sternguards, just need all the bits first. (DA Vet bodies, BA Sanguinary Wings & (combi)bolterarms and of course BT Helmets again, gonna be fun):
(Pictures are taken half in the dark, better ones follow at some point... )
Feedback and or Tips are as always welcome and appreciated.

I actually think I will go over all the models at some later stage to do the highlighting properly...
noooooo, not even more guardsmen, they are already fairly annoying/hard to kill! :p!!
On the other hand, can you ever have enough?
Should I take those with me on Sunday? !
Work on the Dreadnoughts is a bit postponed, hopefully will start on Thursday evening, or during the Weekend..
Instead i´ve been thinking about the currently painted models and wanted to get a bit a better result when painting.
Currently they get a White basecoat, then a 1/3 blood red, 1/3 shining gold, 1/3 blazing orange armour and then a black wash..
The cloth is black and got a shining gold drybrush.
I´ve added some highlights now with blazing orange and then drybrushed with white but i´m still not completely happy:
Here to compare the two:
what would you change with the painting?
The Dreads are still not painted, but at least I got done building my Sternguards (besides the one with the Multi Melta) and the Libby is built as well.
All for my Exorcist army..
And a few of the other models, one of them with Combi Melta:
Feedback very welcome !
