Hey everyone, again it’s been a while since I last posted but I can promise that I will be returning to my Monday, Wednesday and Friday Mashup schedule very soon.
I have been working on a whole bunch of things over the last 10 days but all at once so I have not had anything finishing staggered ahead of anything else, this has left me with a load of work in progress images so I figured I would just get them out today. I have a game using my Imperial Guard tonight Vs the new Eldar Codex so I will be doing a bit of a battle report tonight/tomorrow and then I hope to get the Friday mashup out with a look at all things new and 40k related that I think are worth you checking out.
Firstly I ordered a few Imperial Guard bits from Forgeworld which I can’t disclose the identity of until tomorrow, what I can say is that the grumpy cat was not included in the order.
I built me an Icarus Pattern Lascannon so I can switch out the Quad-Gun some times.
All lined uop on the spray sticks ready for an undercoat of Chaos Black.
These guys turned out looking really cool even after just one coat of wash.
I broke out the airbrush and got my Mortalis Dark Angels force all based up, I used a thinned Caliban Green for the Scouts and anyone in power armour. I undercoated the Deathwing Terminators in Skull White spray with a Seraphim Sepia wash then I left the bikers in black.
Vallejo Model Air Russian Green is great for Cadians.
Sunnys and faces all done and wash applied.
I then moved onto building 6 Imperial Guard Cadian Autocannon bases, I used Vallejo Model Air Russian Green as a basecoat which is an exact match for the new Castellan Green which was wicked I got these guys done in next to no time. I then added the base colours to the Aquillia, faces and blacked out the boots and gloves and then applied a liberal coat of Athonian Camochade to the green areas and Agrax Eathshade to the Gold Aquillia and the faces.
I still need to add the Leadbelcher battle damage to the armour on the Autocannon, helmets and shoulder pads and some clumps of grass to the bases and they are done.
I am going to try and get an army picture of the Cadians before the game tonight as that should look very cool.
It’s been a mad 10 days and I have been getting a lot of small pop up projects done and working like a machine, next week should see me getting back to the Space Wolves and posting regularly with hobby progress and with Apocalypse 2 coming out soon expect some news.
Check back tomorrow for a battle report and a mashup but for now so long and thanks for reading.
