Default ĦA Moment of Laxity Spawns a Lifetime of Heresy!

Heya and welcome to my Deathwing Log. I've become tired of my Orks and decided to go with a much more organized army. Particularly the Imperium. Particularly the Space Marine. Particularly the Dark Angels. Particularly the Deathwing. Never forget, never forgive!

Lotsa interest neh?

Foraging ahead, its time for some pictures!



The entire force ,as it stands, at the moment. Thats a Count-As Baliel and two squads of Terminators. When this army is completed, there will be Baliel, a Libaraian, four squads of Terminators, and three Deathstorm Drop Pods.



First Squad led by Sergeant Amadeus.



Second Squad led by Sergeant Dionysus.



This is the test mini. Instead of opting for a DYI army, I decided to stick with the Deathwing- whats not to like about the color of Bone? The paint formula is...
  • Basecoat Black
  • Iyanden Darksun
  • Bleached Bone
  • Skull White
  • Highlight of Skull White
  • Wash of Gryphonne Sepia



Close up of the leg freehand. The one designates that he his part of the first squad. All of the infantry will have this (1,2,3,4 according to the squad number) painted on them.



This is Sergeant Amadeus. If all goes according to plan, he will be my entry into the Youngbloods Contest. A couple things you should note. I tried to model his base to look as though he is leading the charge into a trench filled with Orks. You can see some weapons up through the trench as the Greenskins vainly attempt to stop his charge. GS'd sandbags will be added to this eventually. Secondly, his armpits are the first time I tried this effect with Greenstuff. I personally think it looks great. Your thoughts?



The back of Amadeus. You can see that he carries a book on his back. This also serves to designate him as the leader of the squad. And I wanted to try it, also.

Thats all for now. Tell me what you think!

P.S.

A teaser shot for y'all!

I think that's a cool idea for Amadeus, and I hope you can pull it off. Seems like it will be very hard to portray him charging over a trench. I'd think you'd be better off having him step over some sandbags with a few grots on the other side. Then you could have him crushing one with his foot. I'm not sure people will get what you are doing with an axe and shoota sticking out of the base, but go ahead and do it and prove me wrong. I'm looking forward to it. I think he would look better leaping or stepping on/over the sandbags though.

I think the greenstuff in the armpits looks great.

Most excellent idea for Brother Sergeant Amadeus. As much as I dislike seeing Orks getting slaughtered, as long as it looks as cool as I'm sure Amadeus will, I'm cool with it. :P

I agree with Scoutfox in regards to the his pose. It looks a little static to be leaping into a Greenskin filled trench... I'm sure it'll look better once you add in the sandbags, et cetera, but it's still something to keep in mind.

Don't worry. You're not the only one who's not getting much interest shown in their log. :P

They're looking great, not entirely sure about Amadeus, he looks like he wants to go flying, but it's an early stage, it will probably look a lot better when done.

Good to see you've started another army.....

They're coming along well man, I really love that conversion, the gs you did looks fantastic under the arms! ;D The book tho... idk if its a W.I.P. but it pales in comparison to the gs on the arms man, you could do better.

The test mini looks pretty good, a little dirty, but overall for PIP he looks good .

I'm excited to start postin pics of my corsairs in combat with your nasti lil termies!!!

Best of luck,

-RS

His arms looks disproportionate. they are too far up for his shoulder blade to cope with the angle. It's a cool idea I just think they should be lower.

And you HAVE to freehand paint orks into that base.

I've never been a huge fan of the dirty bone white etc. paintjob but I really like your 'dynamic entry'. I'd never have thought of a way to represent that.
Also, you may want to try to texture your books a bit more. After all, the mans a veteran, and they've probably been into battle lots, (but hey, its a reprinted addition you jackass! )
Overall I'm very excited about this. I hope you get'er done.
