More work on the long fangs

They are mostly done. Just to finish off the bases, and to give them one final oil color wash.

Amazing day at a friend's place

Today i was at a friend's place, and we decided to dedicate the whole day to modeling.

He is currently working on a large wh40k chaos force with a lot of forgeworld models, and i took the opportunity to start painting my magnetized long fangs, and two special terminators, namely Arjac Rockfist, and a lone wolf (and some more wolves). In the process I also finished to Circle Orboros models that were half done for quite some time.

And to cut it short, I will let the pictures speak for themselves:

Wargamer fuel: pizza, coke and beer!

I had my painted Terminators with me, and just couldnt resist taking these photos :)

The results of the day are here :)

Long overdue Circle Orboros images

These three nice little models just sat in the cabinet, waiting for a long time to be finished. Finally they are all done.

Wolf Guard Terminators pt. 2

These five terminators are getting a lot of love :)

They are almost finished. Just waiting now for their oil washes.

And now for something completely different

Its ...

A model airplane!

Good ole' 1:72 Ju-87 B2/R2 Stuka, from Italeri.

For now I assembled the cockpit, painted it, and afterwards assembled the whole aeroplane around the painted cockpit.

Here is the eye candy:

All I can say after this experience is that 1:72 model airplanes are seriously tiny and hard as hell to assemble. Some of the pieces on the Stuka are missing since they were just too tiny to even contemplate clipping off the sprue.

How I paint faces

My face painting is far from perfect, but the results are more than decent for the tabletop.

Here is how I do it:

1. Start off with a face :)

Paint some black inside the mouth, and all over the eyes:

3. Layer some off-white on top of the black, and try to leave some black showing at the edges (This is theory. I suck at faces :P)

4. Paint on the pupils, and shape the eye as best as possible

5. Base it all in a dark flesh color

6. Layer down light flesh tone, but try to leave some dark in the recesses around the eyes and nose

7. Wash generously with Ogryn Flesh (or equivalents)

8. Highlight again with the light flesh with a spot of white added in, and fix up the beard, moustache, eyebrows, and everything that got messed up in the process :)

And this concludes my way of painting space marine faces. All comments welcome :)
