These were commissioned for an up coming tourney for a member on another forum. They took me just over a week to finish.

I am VERY happy with how these guys came out, especially considering the time frame. I am very very very happy with the Chappy, unfortunately the picture doesn't do the scrolls justice, I have no idea why, but you can't see any definition of the scrolls in the pic.

Also I noted after I took the pic that there is a tiny spot on the shoulder of Termie on the right hand side, it is fixed now ;)

Pics time

great figurers there! The scroll and head of chappy was what I liked best, you've brought out the detail in the figures very well. you have great talent and I hope to see more of you painted figures!

Very nice! Those are some beautifully painted models. I like how you've done the helmets blue rather than the standard white that Ultra termies use. I think it makes the unit a lot more individual rather than following the standard scheme.

can you tell me what kind of blues were used? it might help me to lighten up my models a bit, they are a bit dull atm tho i use the ultramarine blue.

They looked dipped to me. Me no likey!

I have to say that i do actually see dipping as a really poor way of painting. it gives up the love of painting for quick un-impressive models.

All the detail you could of picked up.. all the intricate parts you have covered with gloopy varnish.

It upsets me. It really does.

There nice for dipped models. and some of the best dipped marines ive seen.

I like the finish, much cleaner than i can do, I think imo that the white faces of Ultra Termies looks better than an all blue and the green lightning claws kinda clash with the blue!

but like i said i think that they do look the buisness, nice one!

and yes your chaplin does look like hes on saturday night fever! ;)

Thanks for the comments, well mostly ;)

can you tell me what kind of blues were used?
I started with a base of Ice blue, then glazed that with ultramarine blue, then a thin glaze of night blue, and finally a very very thin glaze of black.

They looked dipped to me. Me no likey!
Sorry to disappoint but they are not dipped ;)

those really are quite excellent. So you started at the brighted and glazed your way down into the shadows? What kind of glaze did you mix? proportion of paint to glazing medium etc. Also, did you mix in a bit of the previous colour to keep it consistent, or was it each straight colour?

Yup that's the idea

I use Deserres Brand glaze medium. The ratio depends but for large surfaces it runs about 1 :10 :10, paint:glaze:water.

I just use the straight colour in the glaze, it does a great job of blending itself on the mini.
