Default Eternal Gaurd: A journey

OK, i finally decided to start a blog of all my working on this chapter and i will post progress and group shots etc... later on ill include fluff also but this is the showcase forum so painting/ the finished models will be the primary focus ok heres a new thought in painting my marines, caution stripes. i want to know a few things about this new technique

1. Do you even like it, would u do it to everyone
2.Should i do it in the same place on everyone
3. Which do you like the most (base, knee, shoulderpad

i want them to look a sinister very very sinister/serpentine

ok so here they are









I finally decided to try light sourcing to take the next step in improving my painting and im very happy with the result, ill like to see what you think.

heres the plasma cannon, all the other weapons in my army are black so i just wanted the glowing plasma thats it and i didnt want the normal blue or green so i did a red/pink





please enjoy! i know i keep posting individual models and im not sure if thats annoying but im going to just start a blog with my next post that will catalog everything and stuff... maybe a tutorial or two also!

Always nice to see someone do things a lil different. Perhaps some day you be known as the "Red Plasma Coil Guy"

U bit me to it U ..... No good man U !!! ..... ;D ;D ;D

Yesterday I finished my XV25 with light sourcing. But I got no camera now so can't post... But I will, I'm actually renovating every model, and that one got one of the unique features ... ok enough "previewing"...

Ur model is VERY good, BUt plz take a better picture, so the glorious lights would be seen. I don't see much of that effect on the web. So, I am glad to see this sort of things hear... U'll need some basing for this dude, but he is very cool.

Hear, in case u do not know this web, go there and check "Illumination" section, there is lots of stuff there, I tried to learn that thing from there.

In anyway, plz show better picture

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

Finally some good pics! ;D

Dude thats nice lightsource, makes me think maybe I should do some adjustment to mine... hmmm...

Small advise, If u doing lightsource, u might as well do kick ass base and some weathering or dmging...

Over all REALLY good lightsource... Its going to be hard to be this standard now...

P.S. U doing nothing wrong IMO

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

Red Plasma...Xeno tech! Heresy! Burn him! Burn him!

Looks outstanding, bud, I love it. Very sinister. I might have to pinch it for my IG; I'll justify it by saying it's just a red filter so the plasma gunner doesn't ruin his night vision. Wouldn't want the Inquisition getting a bag on now would we?
