Default D'yanoi sept Hunter Cadre

The Cadre so far


I'll Start with the stuff that was painted during Summer '05, they're finished, but... well, not the greatest.

Firewarrior Team 1




Kroot



Gun Drone


Crisis Suits


Commander


And now, for the newer stuff... which isn't finished (awaiting detaling, highlights, and some camo). Unfortunately, i still have a Skyray and devilfish to paint before the end of the summer, and little time to do this, and once i get back to my engineering courses, i'll ave even less time to finish up my models.

Stealth Squad



Hammerhead


Firewarrior Team 2




Pathfinders



Sadly , by the time i got the chance to take my pictures, it was already well into the evening, and not really bright enough to really show my models. I guess this will have to do for now, but tomorrow morning I'll try to retake the pics, if i have time... if not, it will have to wait a week for my return from vacation. Near the end, for the last few, it is far too dark to even make out the basic colours... let alone the camo scheme...

That is a very nice army. Well done.

well, actually, the paints i use are Testor's modelmaster oil based paints....

however, i've realised the error of my ways and am beginning to replace them with GW paints.

Also, the lack of light really hides the true colours... All the tanks and troopers have interior green (close to goblin green i think) on the armour, with dark green (similar to DA green) as a second camo colour. Cloth and such is in Dark Green. Also, it doesn't show to well, but the pathfinders are beginning to receive a 3 tone camo treatment to large cloth sections... Dark tan cut up by light green, on the dark green base...

Anyways, as i said before, i'll try to get new (brighter pics), but i don't think i'll have time.. in which case i'll come back a week from now to resurrect this thread...

Wow...these are fabulous, what a treat it must be to play against such a beautifully painted army.

I especially like the woodland bases. The long dry grass looks fantastic.

Nice camo scheme as I said before your pait is looking a touch thick thin with water and future floor wax (50/50 mix) and that should smooth things out

not bad dude, not bad.

my only suggestion is that you use XV25s instead of XV15s
