    Sternguard, I know they are not on the list... but, they will be painted in Carcharodon colors, and used when I up it to 2K points

    What was the rhino basecoated with? The bodywork looks quite cool and realistic but the details such as lights radar etc seem to be fuzzy like they have been textured.

    i loooove scoutquads! havent played 40k for many years, but i do have scouts

    white corners on a searchlight, easy but looks really good, i should do that too.

    I'm not sure if i am seeing it right, it looks as if the basecoat is actually weathering paint, or maybe a really thick layer of brown spray. Could be fun for some parts, but tanks might looks nice with thiner layers of paint.
    (when the plates look grainy, to other people that makes it look not-realistic. even though 'real' rusty plates have the same gritty effect, that is different because of the scale of the model.

    Our paints are thick enough already, don't make it too thick, your models may lose some details.
    if you spraypaint, after shaking the bottle, make sure you keep an armlength distance from the tank and spray only a bit. If it didnt cover everything you want, you can fill that up witha brush aswell.

    the white background works well, next picture f your infantry should be like the last pictures you made

    Its a slightly metallic textured spraypaint, you are right about the fuzzy bits, they need to be sanded and redone.

    This is actually the first time I have had a scout heavy list... Should be interesting...

    The white background was an after thought, all my pictures from now on will use that... It looks so much better and helps showcase the model as opposed to the junk in the background.

    EDIT: Keep in mind this is only about 75% complete... I will post the completed pics when it is done...

    hey man, your WAY better off undercoating with halfords acrylic spray man. its dirt cheap and comes in massive cans, gives you a solid coat and its perfeect for whatyou need. NEVER used textured paint unless your painting bases or scenery...
