First things first, im not a good painter, I dont claim to be, I see all these threads talking about a sloppy paint job and then I look over at one of my minis and cry. I'll also have to apologize for the pics, I'm trying to figure out my camera and my work table light is sorta orange and if I try to use my flash on the camera you cant even see the model.

HQ
Chaos Lord w/ Mark of Khorne, Terminator armor, Combi-bolter and Power Weapon 120 points (Needs to be based and other arm needs to be put on after its finished being painted)

Elites

5 Terminators w/ Icon of Chaos Glory and 5 Combi-Plasma s and 1 Powerfist 205 points (Gotta buy these and then got a ton of stuff to do)

Troops

Rhino (Done)

10 Chaos Space Marines w/ IoCG, 2 Plasma guns and Aspiring Champion Power fist 265 points (Need basing and minor touch ups)


Rhino (Needs to be finished painting and converted to chaos)

Chaos Lord. Okay, this bad boy is represented by my Huron Blackheart model. This, believe it or not I have spent the most time on out of painting all of my minis. I’ve spent about 2 hours and he still looks terrible compared to you vet’s models but I’m happy.

The Termies. Going to do what Danjones87 did, cut up the combi-bolters and add on Plasma Pistols to the left barrel.

Rhino. My 3rd vehicle ever and was really fun to pain, the boltgun metal looks really thick though, I painted this one up before I ever watered down paints or used any planning when painting.

Marines. Random bolters and Chainswords in this squad, I like the chevrons but once again the damn yellow is super watery and takes like 7 layers before it stops looking green. Some of the models I painted about a year ago and other about a few weeks ago so the difference in detail is pretty big in my eyes.

Other Rhino. This hideous beast was once a 2nd edition Whirlwind and im trying to make it look Chaosy and painting it up.

Other Marines. Same as ones before but I got some servitors from a Techpriest I think its called from a friend IG army so I got some ugly skin color in my squad, any help is appreciated for helping me get It right.

Pred. I like it, wish I used magnets for the sponsons though. Curse you lazy disease!

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/MonkeyMini/IMG_1395.jpg

Defiler. Ugh, brings up bad memories. This is a pic of him after an amazing 2 leg repositioning, I had to snap off the legs and reglue them.

Ill post more as I keep it moving.

Thanks Koss.

Do my bases look right? I know ive done 3 but do the rocks look to big? Ive only completed one of the three based minis though, I painted the side of the base scorched brown and inked the rocks with chestnut ink then reeeally lightly drybrushed some vomit brown.

I love the black, red, and gold color scheme but unfortunately many of your pictures are blurry so I can't see them that well. Post some better pics and steady your camera on some books or a tripod so it doesn't shake. Looking forward to seeing them soon.

Nice work so far, it looks like a nice list and a good solid plan to get stuff done. I think you might like to add some chaos stars and other chaos iconagraphy to the models like the one on my combi plasma terminator below.



A few of these on models and dotted on tanks makes them much more chaosy feeling.

Nice work so far. My only suggestion is to 'bulk' out the chevrons, i think they look better being only a small amount of each colour stripe, maybe no more than three stripes of each colour.

Also, if you have them lying around, i find loyalist chainswords are easier to get nice chevrons on, they have a cover over the back which helps.

They al look good man. I was looking at your Lord and have a suggestion that you can use on him and the other marines. Try adding highlights to the armor. The parts that are red look good, but if you add a lighter red to the edges you will start to get a more 3D look.

When I started painting my Deathwing Terminators I actually decided on the paint scheme which is actually 4 colors. Base coat, primary coat, highlight color1, highlight color2. You may want to consider that as you keep doing the marins.

When it comes to the striped on the swords, I agree with Danjones87. I think 4 is the magic number personally. you can also use a 2 or 3 color system to make them look more dynamic and less like just yellow lines on the model.

Hope these ideas help, and good job so far on all of it.

What Brother Kendo is saying here is to add a little high light to every hazard stripe, this is a good idea on larger stripes (on vehicles and such) but somtimes on infantry models it isnt nesseccairy (sorry about the spelling).



Here, on my Daemon Prince, you can see a low light of orange on the yellow adding depth to the colours.

I have that chaos lord model but I changed his arms around with another powerfist and gun and he looks way better now, but you made it end up way better than mine ever looked. the rest of the army looks nice and clean, really like the defiler!

what the hell is chevron? I keep hearing it in regards to chaos marines... but I have no idea unless its a powerfist? thats my best guess, these guys rock pancake but maybe using some better lighting or just a piece of paper behind the models would help.
