I am shocked and slightly arosed. >

Not only did you paint Cadian well, you did it cammo, and desert at that!

Then I am further blown away, for your one of the 5 people on this site who accualy know how to base models.

It's perfect in every way, the ONLY thing I would do differntly would be the lasgun, some small parts on it could be painted metal, might be worht a try. ???

Hi chaps!
Just a quick update,
I changed the black and white spots to get rid of the 'eyeball-effect'. Do you think that's not quite as strange??

Cheers

CC

Looks really cool !! Makes me want to change my 500 pts guard army to that lol!

The green looks nice on the dessert indeed. One thing though: Add a little more detail to the guns. Like someone said: Just some more metal should do it

This is as it should be. Like sunlit pebbles with shadowy edges.

Cheers

Here it is. A short tutorial on my version of desert camo choc-chio-style:

(F)= Foundation, (V)= Vallejo

Black undercoat

Armour: Catachan Green and extreme highlight with Gretchen Green (F)
Flesh: Tanned Flesh, Dwarf Flesh, Elf Flesh.
Weapons: Chaos Black, very light highlight with Adeptus Battlegrey (F)

Uniform: 1st layer USA TAN-EARTH (V)




2nd layer Iraqi Sand (V)




Brown camo stripes in Calthan Brown (F)




some highlights for the lighter areas in Bleached Bone, the brown stripes with USA TAN-EARTH (V) and the spots with Chaos Black and Skull White added, some basing and you're done!




Simple but effective, isn't it??



Cheers

CC


Nice tutorial. +1 - Cadaver

Looks great! I really like how they look, even better in that group in the last pic.

If I were a mod, you'd be +1 in a second.

I really like your camo! But I think it would look better with bleaced bone spots with a black Lolight. So it would look like this http://www.rockywoods.com/camouflage...esert_camo.jpg

Well, I tried Bleached Bone but I did like the white better. More contrast.



Yesterday I ordered a Humvee and some plasticard...my first major conversion project coming up- YAY!

Cheers
