Default Jonagons Tau + Marine Project Log [updated 18/4/10]

Well, i've decieded to start a project log to keep track of my progress here.

Started Tau a few months ago after many years away from teh hobby and have also aquired some AoBR marines (by some I mean two sets after swapping with a friend)

Am quite slow with the painting hopefully this log will encourage me to speed up a bit.

Will post my current work in progress here, pics of completed stuff to follow when I photo it.

so.. current tau work = devilfish:



and my invader chapter test space marine:



Maine needs neatening up but is nearly there, as its the first space marine i've painted am still unsure about a few things. Particularly comments on the bolter apreciated, does it look old and weathered like i intended or naff and should be repainted? Thanks!

Looks very good. Really clean paintwork and I like the colours.
The Marine actually have the same colour as my old Renegade Marine Chapter ^^

Only thing to tic on, might be that the Marines base look a bit plain.

Keep up the good work

Cheers

Thanks King Winter, The base is a bit plain, am planning to do some urban stuff on the marine bases, but havn't really worked out what yet, need to find some rubble or something.

Some loverly painting there, but i have to disagree about the base, for rank and file troops i like a simple base (not just because i'm lame at bases, although I have found a few good guides) because it dosen't make them stand out, if they do, your characters won't have the same imposing feel.

Not when I want to paint somehting for a competition, digi cams are the way to go for spotting mistakes.

Loving the painting on him, I want to see more of them :P.

And get that devilfish done! -.-

I *love* the colors on the devilfish, they're actually the same grey and red that I used on my space marines. Awesome job

That is one good lookin Marine
A little drip of wash on the Aquila and the golden trimmings one the shoulderpads and you're ready to go!
Nice work on the base as well.

Again, keep it up

Cheers.

I really like the color of your devilfish. The red looks a little thin here and there, but on a whole, it looks great. I would like to see a whole army in the scheme.

Yeah that was WIP, it has had many coats of red since, an update coming tomorrow, with finished fish and the other units finished so far.
