It's done. I've finally finished this model, a Dark Angels Sternguard Veteran.
If you are interested, some of you asked this to me, the green was made with Citadel Games Workshop Caliban Green highlighted with Bad Moon Yellow in order to have a cool acid green.
Tomorrow afternoon I'll put this miniature on eBay as promised.
I'm quite satisfied with this model since I've spent many weeks without painting at all... my real life kept me away from my workbench!
It's time to move on... who said Black Templar Sternguard Veteran? :D
Ok, so it seems that the painting demon caught me once again :)
The model is almost finished, I just need to paint the backpack of this Dark Angels Sternguard Veteran Space Marine from Games Workshop, and to create a base... maybe some kind of concrete ruin.
week end, in Monte San Savino (a small town in Tuscany, here in Italy)
will be held the 2013 edition of the Monte San Savino Show, one of the
best miniature exposition of Europe... and maybe of the world. I really
suggest you to take a look if you can.
Ok, this update is not dealing with miniatures...
In the last few weeks I've made a house relocation since we are making total renovation of our home (later we'll have to move back once again), so as you can see I did not paint a lot, well I did not paint at all. In the meanwhile I've developed an Apple iPad application useful to share the expenses when you go around with your friends I'd like to show you.
I'm in the final stage of the beta testing. In November I'm gonna release it on the App Store.
In the future, I'm gonna make an iPhone version too.
Painting while listening to the new Dream Theater songs... I've just started this Ultramarine Centurion Space Marine. I'm just waiting for the new Stenguard Veteran box, so I do not know when I'll finish this squad. No airbrush, just a kind of drybrushing and a lot of glazes.
I've finished the Ultramarine Hunter & Stalker tank.
I've painted one hull and both turrets in order to have the options for both version of this model.
I have to admit that the Games Workshop kits of the new Space Marines army are really really good. The CAD work and printing process was amazing. As you can image this tank is for sale on eBay. If you are interested just click the button "For Sale" on the top of this pace.
In the painting process I've made a lot of pictures in order to write a step by step tutorial. Just give me few days to finish it.
Sunday of painting!
The model in the Hunter configuration is almost ready.
Tomorrow I'll start the Stalker cannon too and I'll sell it with both options.
Uh, I've taken a lot of pictures because I'm gonna write a step-by-step of this model...
It's done! I've finished this cool tank just before the release of the new Space Marine Codex from Games Workshop.
It will be on eBay next week.
It was too big for my softbox so I took the picture on my desk :)
Back from the holidays! If you are curious I've been to Trentino (north Italy, mountains..) and Krakow (Poland, my wife's city). The new Space Marine models are approaching, I've already ordered something, so I've started one of the models I prefer... a big tank, a Land Raider Crusader... Ultramarine Chapter of course!
No airbrush this time, back to the origins and just drybrush with a big flat brush and a bit of oil shadows.
