Default Sisters,Marines and Dreadnaughts , oh My!( Lots of Pics)

Hey There fellas I just thought i'd throw some recent finished works up. I was shooting for alittle better than table top as I'm short on time lately.And there are probably more mold lines than I care to obsess over ;D SO here you go ...

Razorback with a blind driver(havent given him eyes yet)


BT Dreadnaught , really dig this model


Genestealer Bumrush!!


I just finished this BT Terminator adn like him alot, finally got the nerve to start him this weekend



My first attempts at Ultramarines, again just going for a tad better than tabletop quality for speed



Speed painted Sisters of Battle(jsut got them for the looks)






So thats it for now, I'll hope to get the rest of terminators finished along with the rest of the Ultramarine Squad.

Ah...finally another mini-painter who thinks a sisters squad should all have helmets on.

Nice to actually see one painted up.

Nice job.

thanks for the good feedback, I'm really not happy with the terminator and Dreadnaught pics, they look way better than that in person. I'll have to fiddle my camera to get the flash thing right. On that note i thinkk i need to find a new clearcoat to use. I'm using Krylon Matte but it seems to be getting a bit glossy( hence the shiny pics). GW Matte seems to have a fuzzy feel to it. Any suggestions? Or should i just photo before clearcoating?

I love the way the sisters and Ultramarines turned out( thank you GW Blood red spray) although there isnt a drop of Ultramarine blue on them. Was going to sell them but maybe I can use them to play as an allied squad

They all look very well painted.

Hi,

You are a good painter - unfortunately the photos and the gloss varnish let your minis down.

I can see you have good paint controll and the detail work is very nice as well.

Try to take photos without the flash - it will make the minis look duller - use a tripod, a few good lamps and play around with the settings on the camera. Most cameras can adjust the white balance and adjust shutter speed - focus should be as long as possible in order to have all of the minis in focus, it might not be an issue now but if you don't use flash it will

Also i tip on the varnish - try to use dullcote from testors on the GW varnish - it's very dull, in fact i dare to say it's superdull - the only problem is that your minis won't be as resilient on the table.

Nice minis!
