3rd space marine

New space marine!

I painted some details on this one, still no gold trims but I have been reading up on NMM so maybe I'll use that.

I also started up on the sanding of the sergeant and the marine with the missile launcher.

I think the back of this one ended up better cause I used finer lines. They will be fighting this weekend :D

  1. Wow. That is an awesome looking WIP for sure. Very good handiwork, especially with the extreme highlighting. And if you pull off NMN, man, I want to know what kind of background you have with art:) I am already very impressed.

    Good thing I can always cop out and say that I paint yellow:)

  2. thank you! wow first comment on my blog ::tear::

    well, I don't have a background in art, but I do enjoy painting scale models. Now I'm more encouraged to do the NMM on my models!

    next week I'll post my progress on the NMM gold :D

  3. There apparently is something called True Metal Metallics, or something along the lines of that. I think that it is simply the same idea as NMM but using actual metal colors. Sounded really nice but I can't for the life of me find the link :(

    Myself I use Tin Bitz + drybrush gold + wash (Gryphonne Sepia or Baal Red depending on if I want red gold or not) + some lighter gold drybrush + maybe some mithril silver at the very edges.

    Keep the posts coming, I am curious of what you end up doing and how it will look :) You guys in Guatemala are all good painters judging from the two I follow :)

  4. como se podran dar cuenta soy malo con el Ingles...asi que cuando vi este blog pense que no era de verdad es que tus minis estan muy bien gusto mucho como se ven....EXELENTE TRABAJO....

  5. Well I haven't bought metallic colors yet. I'm going to buy them today but I wanted to give NMM a try before doing what you suggested (tin bitz + dribrush gold etc).

    True metal metallics look very cool on the games-workshop website. I guess thats how I want mine to look. I'm going to make one with NMM and one with TMM and post pictures and choose there :P

    @hellboy gracias, se ven mejor en foto que en persona :P
