As predicted, 2 more points score quite quickly in the Painting Challenge for the completed Terminator Sergeant. This has been my favourite model to paint so far. Having said that, I am not happy with the power sword and a couple of other bits, but it's all a leraning curve and the whole idea of this army is to get into the painting more and be a 'practice run' for the Dark Templar army.
I have worked out a good process for the stone crux on the shoulder, which I have used on any skulls/bolter details. It is slightly different from the colours used for purity seals or tabards and I may add a related painting demonstration blog at some point.
Looking at these pics, the base is not doing it for me – the scheme used for the tactical marines is obviously not enough for the larger bases. I may add another highlight, or some scenic snow (which I was intending to use on this army anyway).
Next on the list is the Dred, which I have been avoiding (dreading?...sorry) but it will give a hint of how my scheme works on a vehicle. I also undercoated the 4 remaining Terminators today so they should be underway soon too.
