Deathwing LandRaiders

A mate of mine has commissioned me to do a couple of Deathwing Land Raiders. Here are some WiP pics taken with my shiny new iPhone 4S (camera is definitely improved but the flash ain't great as you can see.)

The main colour and panel highlighting has gone down as well as some green area effect at the front which has also been panel filled. I've done this as I think an all bone coloured Land Raider risks looking a little bit flat. I have taken a couple of bits of Dark Angel iconography from the Ravenwing box set upgrade sprues and am painting that up separately to go on some of the doors. Then the deathwing decals will go on from the Space Marine Vehicle decal set. Then the whole thing sealed with satin varnish and then weathered in the panel lines and around the rivets etc with a sepia-ish wash. Then some light weathering and she will be done. I fear too much weathering on it will look too brown given the model colour so I will probably go quite lightly on it.

Airbrushed Blood Angels Vindicator - Done + few updates

Bit of a large update today.

In between prepping a couple of Land Raiders and Dreadnoughts for a commission I have managed to finish of a couple of Blood Angel vehicles that were sat on my bench.

1st up is a vindicator. It was painted using the same technique described in my previous razorback post. Very happy with the way it has turned out. I think I will go back and add some more weathering to the tracks at some stage but for the moment it is ready to go.

Overall I am extremely happy with the way it has come out and look forward to shooting foo's with it :)

2nd up is the razorback seen in previous posts. Just needed a few finishing touches to get it over the line and ready to game. The assault cannons will probably be redone with the airbrush at some point as well as again some more track weathering but again good to go on the tabletop.

Last up is the beginning of work on a dreadnought Plasma cannon and close combat weapon as part of the commission I am working on. Only the very beginning but getting some of the blended airbrush work done so I can mask it off and work the rest of the areas.

Apologies for the photo quality of the last two snaps, they were taken with no setup at dark o'clock in the morning.
