Tannibal's Chaos Marine Progress Log
« on: February 15, 2014, 08:22:35 PM »
So I have way too much painting to do. I have just painted a few models up to this point (26 ever, but who is keeping track). I figure this log might be a good place to keep track of what I'm doing. I run one over at warseer too, but I don't like the format as much.

Here is my list of stuff to paint:

Daemon Prince
4
3 squads of 10 cultists each
2 1 hellbrute
4 3 chaos spawn
8  7 6 raptors
2 forgefiends
7 plague marines
10 chaos marines
warpsmith
2 chaos lords
1 rhino
4 chaos bikers
12 chosen
6 chaos terminators
1 defiler
1 helldrake

I'm sure this list will grow as I add more models.

Now I am a new painter and really new to the hobby in general, but I don't want you to go easy on me. I want to be as good a painter as I can be, so tear me apart and offer me suggestions on how to become better please.

I will post pictures in a few minutes here, I'm just going to set up my dslr and pray that I can get some good pictures.

This was my first model EVER. I don't think that I will change anything on it so that I can look back and see just how far I have come. There are about a dozen things I would do differently now, but I will still include this guy because he is part of my army.

This is 1/4, but the others aren't painted yet.

Hellbrute
« Reply #2 on: February 15, 2014, 11:22:38 PM »
This was my first attempt at gold. It turned out alright, but it's a little but flat. I might revisit it later.

hellbrute 1/2, the second isn't painted yet.

Cultists 1-3

So the fluff of my army says that it is a legion of crusading pilgrims, possibly an offshoot of Word Bearers, who are travelling in search of some unholy Mecca in the warp. Because of this, you will see that all of my cultists have different skin and hair colours. It's an equal opportunity legion.

Daemon Prince
« Reply #6 on: February 15, 2014, 11:36:38 PM »
This is my daemon prince. I love him. I think I could do his sword much better now, but I'm okay with how it turned out. Also his wings were a huge obstacle for me, I had to decide to just leave them alone. Anymore layers of paint on them and they would have lost all detail. I'm really quite happy with everything else though.

I like your daemon prince. Is the terminator helmet just a nice add on or a nice subtle jab at a friend's army? When I make the ripper swarms in my tyranid army I plan on using some random models I have as scenic casualties, and paint em up like figures in my friends space marines and elder armies
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

It isn't a jab at anyone in particular. Maybe a subtle jab at the boys in blue but mostly because i thought the blue would be a different enough colour to pop from the rest of my army.
