I need to get my lava painting skills up to scratch and was

wondering how everybody else paints lava ?

These two are examples I have experimented on. Please note the Terminator

was not painted by me. I only made and painted the base on the Terminator.

I used plasticard to built up the bases. Black base coat and Dawnstone dry brush

for the rocks. The lava was basically Dark red through to orange and a tiny white

line through the middle.

Be aware that the original Warsmith pictured below will only be my icon bearer
as he is not big and hard enough for the job. I have plans for another figure
to be my Warsmith. Strangely I have 3 original Warsmiths so get use to seeing
him used as a bog standard Choas marine.

Iron Warriors(Part 1).

Sticking with Chaos, I have finally managed to grab some bargains

off fleabay and start my Iron Warrior army. I have used a mixture of

GW parts, Forgeworld and spares. The new Forgeworld Heresy parts also

mix nicely with the Iron Warrior look.

I`m only at the sculpting stage so hang on for the fully painted piccies.

Hope you like them ?

This is my test subject Black Legion Terminator aimed for

Space Hulk use. The base was from Fenris Games and once again

I went for a basic paint scheme. One thing I noticed after painting

the Space Marines was how nice it is to paint a clean model and

the size gives to greater accuracy with the paint brush.

Ok another re-vamp but this time I remembered to take the piccies before

work commenced.

The shots below were after a 3 day battle with Fairy green spray and a small brush.

Plus endless re-gluing of parts and replacing parts that just fell to bits.

At this point I was getting ready to re-base coat them.

And now the finished article.

The colour scheme is very basic using:
Abaddon black.
Leadbelcher & Iron breaker for the silver
Balthasar,Gehennas & Auric for the gold.
Agrax wash for gold and Nuln oil for silver.
Dawnstone for the light grey highlights.

A word of caution on the Fairy green stuff to remove paint. It is not as effective as

brown Dettol and requires some serious elbow grease. Only plus side is it has really no

smell to it compared to the stink that Dettol gives off.

Blood Angels Terminators

Five Terminators given a re-vamp after painting over the worse paint

job ever and re-sticking more parts than came on the original sprue.

I also had to base them as well.

I keep saying this,”I must take some before and after shots”.

Anyway the owner of these beauties likes the re-vamp very much.
