Imperial Flush Space Marines

The first fire team is painted in the basic colours. The ammo pouches were painted leather brown; the tubes, elbow and knee joints etc. were painted black; the eyeslits were painted dark green; the shoulder pads yellow; the weapons in a light wood colour; the metal areas a dark metal.

Time for shading...

The models were brushed in Army Painter Quick Shade Dark Tone. Here is a group and a single photo before:

After the Quick Shade was brushed on and dried, the models looked as follows:

No comparison to manually shaded and highlighted models, but as a quick and dirty method good enough.

The models are quite shiny now, after the static grass is added to the bases, they will receive a coat of Army Painter Anti Shine Varnish.

The Waaagh! Boss is done:

With all the bosses done, it was time to cut the back banners and glue them on.

I hope to finish the models this weekend with the Quick Shade and static grass.

Finally some progress on the 15mm ConServ vehicles: I painted the windows and applied washes to the metal area on the excavator.

Imperial Flush Space Marines

With the Orks nearly finished, I prepared their opponents, by doing all the airbrush steps on them today. The opponents are of course the classical ones, Space Marines. I choose the Knight models from Alternative Armies for them, the Chapter is named "Imperial Flush" (which will more sense when you see their iconography) - a non-codex chapter as you can see from their organisation in the pictures below.

As with the Orks, I bought these models quite some while ago, in November 2011. They are ready build (well, except one flag pole which I forgot to build) since January 2012. They are as they came, except that all the leader models were equipped with Mechanical Hammers from MaxMini.eu and I added flag poles to the leaders from plastic rod.

When painting them, I roughly followed "How to paint Blood Ravens Space Marine" by Lester Bursley as published on his YouTube channel "Awesome Paint Job". For colours I used:

After a basecoat of the surface primer, the models were sprayed black (forming the deepest shadows), then from a 90° angle with Mahagony in downward strokes, then with half Mahagony/half Carmine from about a 45° angle and finally with Carmine from the top and in selected spots (like shoe tips, extended hips, etc).

Then the models were sprayed in gloss varnish.

Now the brush work can begin.

The last mob is done, getting the yellow face as mob sign that you can find on Warhammer Fantasy Battles 3rd edition Armies. Also, this mob contains the scratch build plasma gun I tried to model after the iconic Rouge Trader style plasma gun - and gave it the flaming tip.

Only the Waaagh! Boss left now!

I finished the TecServ truck by adding scratches in various places.

Next up are the three ConServ vehicles. First, I added shading to the orange with umber shade wash.

The windows were painted in the two base colours as well as all the metal areas in aluminium.

I continued work on the iMob (TM pending).

The backplates were painted white, then a blue circle (well, in theory at least) was painted in the center (roughly).

The backplate was then painted purple, forming an iSlit. I tried to have the slit touch, but not overlap the iRis.

Next, the iLids were painted. Here, I tried to follow the contour of the purple a the tips, but this time overlapping the iRis slighty at the top and the bottom.

Lastly I painted a white rim, which will be filled with a checked pattern, similar to the flag (see last post).

Ok, enough eye-jokes for today ;-)

The next mob is done. The hand is again based on the drawing in 3rd ed Warhammer Fantasy Battles Armies from the Orc section.

The next to last mob's banner is also done. The eye is taken from the Orc section of Warhammer Armies, too.
