Hi Guys,

They aren't quite finished, but here is the squad so far (I've hidden the unpainted minis in the back).

Admittedly I'm one of those Guys that LOVES Group Photos. As such, I think your OH-SO-COOL creations look EVEN COOLER all together...only placing them in their natural environ would be cooler. GREAT & INSPIRING STUFF! cheers

Laney...These are great. Your skill has only improved over time.

Keep up the great work!

This, my man, is very cool stuff!

I like the Ogryn very much! That cigar... The red barets are also a slick touch. The sniper is awesome. Love this! Let's see some more!

See ya! Sturmm

Thanks Da Bank/Deafnala for the kind words it means alot from your peers and I think I have improved hugely since joining this forum (So Ta!).

@ Major Sturmm: Cheers - The thing is the Ogryns not officially joined the squad yet! I've got one or two games to save up to get him (He has to be a bone'ead fluff dictates and I can't send him in without some hardwear). I'll try to get some more things out in the next week (maybe even something a little bit special - I kind of promised Mordheimer)

His beard/5 o'clock shadow is possibly my favourite part (maybe even of the whole squad). Which I believe was an idea from one of your group - very cool.

Cheers Laney Aquila

Very cool, thanks for sharing these with us! I knew every individual piece was great but it is lovely to see the whole Squad together. Seeing them like this reinforces the quality of the camouflage paintwork as both effective camouflage and as a stylistic creation. The contrast of the red berets and detailing just strengthens the cohesiveness of the force. I would love to be able to produce something this fine.

Thanks again guys! Very Happy - I've taken a brief break from these guys to mess around with some Mordians - but it'll be cool to get them finished.

@ Jammydodger: I'm glad it all works together - that's probably the biggest challenge for me - remembering that they are meant to belong to the same squad!

@ Lydor: That's (one of) the cool things about Death Squads. The models can all be individual - great modelling opportunities - something I could never do if this was an IG army (though at this rate I'll have a fully converted IG Varangian 40k Army!).

Cheers Laney cheers

@ Arachas: It does look cool - thanks for the idea! (codex grey and catachan green - it shouldn't work but it does!)

The camo (starting from the bottom is charadon granite basecoat, with an ogryn flesh wash. The camo on top is Khemri Brown and dheneb stone (the colours next door to the ones you suggested Smile )

Cheers Laney cheers

AMAZING! I had to run to the bathroom after seeing the guys... my intestines could not hold the excitement! HAHAH!

Your work is AMAZING!

Whenever you make another guy with 5 o'clock shadow (beard)... TUTORIAL!!! We all want to get drink for the fountain of knowledge!

I'll step in, Laney. (:

The beard is really quite easy. It's Catachan Green mixed with Codex Grey... and then carefully applied on an otherwise finished face. C'est tout.

Thanks for the positives guys - more complete Varangians on the way - the are almost done!

As Arachas said Wink ,

It would be wholly unfair of me to do a tutorial that is an idea nicked (thanks again for the idea Arachas (from another forum member - but maybe he will oblige Very Happy ). The only thing I'd add is that I made it a virtual wash and applied 3 coats (I don't know if this is different to how Arachas does it or not)

Cheers Laney cheers

Ohhh... the Arachas... please (pretty please!) make a tutorial (with pics) next time. Laney said the same with the patina effect (verdigris copper oxidation) and only until he made the tutorial I managed to learn it. Hehehehe

Seriously... you mix the paint and you gently brush it onto the face. There's no tutorial to be made... lol.
