Progress of the Wave Serpent

The hull is done, as well as the underbody. The underbody is my favourite piece of Eldar tanks to paint, because it’s just primed black and then drybrushed. Highlighting the underneath structure by hand would drive me insane. I also started work on the field...

Courage and Honour

So with all the Eldar goodness coming along, what does the future hold for my Ultramarines? I will paint the already shown Scout Squad after I finish the Wave Serpent, along with classic Marneus Calgar. Power armoured Marneus was one of the first UM models...

Wave Serpent Hull almost done

Painted the spirit stone and highlighted the black areas today. All that is left to do for the hull is the second stage of highlighting on the red areas and some minor corrections.

Fire Prism/Nightspinner Sprue Pics

Ultramarine Scout Squad with alternate heads built

Building my shotgun armed Scout squad is finished. They just need some basing. I think they turned out great and the models look so much better with the alternate heads. I used regular Marine heads and carefully shaved off the neck, service studs and cables....

Wave Serpent built, Scouts with alternate Heads

Today I built a wave serpent. I chose to use TL Brightlances. Must say, it’s a cool looking model and even though the turret is a bit angular, I like it. The pokey bits stay seperate for the easy of priming and painting. As I...
