I invite you to bask on the glory that are The Imperial Aces. That is GREAT urban camo!

Hi Kiwi,

There is a tutorial on urban camo in the tutorial section, which I did a while ago - might be useful. There are also some great step by step camo tutorials on the GW website as well (I think the tutorial has a link in it).

Thanks you guys the resources you have pointed me to have been invaluable, especially your's 02laney you put the G.W tutorial to shame.
Anyway here is what I have come up with:



Any comments/ideas would be much appreciated.

Looks very good Cool - though a distance shot would be useful (to judge the effect at 28mm scale). You've clearly got a steady hand judging by the highlighting on the weapon. One little piece of advice - go and trawl the other 40k forums for painting tutorials there are loads of great ideas you can pick up and as always practice makes perfect.

Cheers Laney cheers

Thanks guys,

Here is a distance shot:



Is that better?

@02laney If you could give me a few links to some 40k forums that would be much appreciated, in the searches I did I couldn't find any useful tutorials Very Happy .

The arm looks real good - nice highlighting and you have the patience to paint your parts seperately (I usually glue everything together and then realise I can't reach a key bit!). A lighter highlight on the tubing e.g. blood red and a reddish wash e.g. ogyrn flesh on the hand will help to add definition. Your Catachan's will look superb when they are done.

Here are a few good places to start on the painting/modelling front...

Coolminiornot: http://www.coolminiornot.com/go.php/go/articlephp/levels/99/expand/all?

Dakka Dakka: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/forums/show/68.page;jsessionid=3AD27A64A5C518F7019D69012ED49EA7 (The blogs are generally pretty good on this site too)

Tom Boring Mordheim Forum (great for fantasy ideas) .http://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/painting-and-modelling-f3/

Bell of Lost Souls: http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/forumdisplay.php?f=8

Several of these aren't tutorials as such, but you can pick up some great nuggets from them.

Just reading other peoples creative blogs can provide inspiration/a new technique to try etc

Thanks again for the feedback,
@ 02laney: Thanks for the links, the sites look very useful cheers .
I will definitely highlight more on the actual model, this is just a spare bit I want to get it right before I start on the actual model.
After seeing your Varangians affraid I definitely want to get my hands on some Ogryn flesh but I'm on the verge of running out of other paints.

@ Mordheimer: Thanks, painting the flamer nozzle was by far the most fun I've had painting in a while Very Happy .

I noticed the flamer nozzle as well, great work kiwi.

And I really like the overall feel of your prisoner, with mask, servo skull and a melta.

looking forward to seeing it painted.

I've just finished my prisoner!
I'm really happy with him, thanks for your help guys the camo looks far better than my first attempt.
I can't seem to take any good photos of him though, maybe my hands are still shaking after the three hour stint of painting.

Thanks for your kind words, your urban camouflage looks fantastic.
I have posted pics of the finished prisoner here the pics are on page 10 I think.
