WIP, Terminators

Started on the Terminators.  Have a base color.  Sorta playing around deciding on what the other colors will be.  I tend to just play around with colors till it comes together.  If I don't like something, I'll clean paint from an area, cover, and restart.

Picasa Fun

I've been having trouble taking good pictures lately.  Colors are "washed out", and don't accurately depict the paint colors.

I was trying to get a good picture of Dark Angels, Land Raider Crusader, and came up with this instead...

Glowing Skull
 I max out the shadow setting, which obviously darkens the colors to the extreme, however it does more accurately show the true colors of the Skull itself.

I need to take time to learn how to use my wife's camera.

Painting Updates:

I'm a bit all over the map... I get a squad 95% done, and start another.  Right now, I nearly have two Dark Angels Tactical Squads completed (including bases).  I'm about 50% done with Deathwing Terminators.

Bikes are primed, Land Raider has base, shadow, highlight, matte varnish, and one almost complete skull.  Debating doing a Lions Head on the other side.

Dark Angels

Some final details to wrap up... Bases, not sure how to paint Plasma, "To Glow, or not to Glow.. that is the question".

I really go for a subtle look.  While the extreme contrasts maybe eye-catching, I don't care for extreme highlighting that contrasts.  I like darker and grittier looking marines.

I may give battle damage a go, but it's too easy to overdo it.

Sorry for the bad pics, need to start using my wife's Nikon.

NMM Chrome

Still rusty, but practicing new stuff helps.  This one needs some work, but looks good from table point of view.

yea, needs some work.

Dark Angels

Red/Green colorblindness makes these guys a bit tough!
