Hard Hats

Every so often, I tried to splice in some different head gear for the Greatsword unit, which keeps growing rank after rank. :-)

I wanted to go with more of the hats, since that was an area where I could work in the black of the "black and yellow" color scheme.

I also figured that could make these more of a decorative element throughout the unit, breaking up the mass of floppy hats!

Not many more to go!!!

Facing the Storm(bolter)

Now it's time for those Storm Bolter toting Sisters!  It is actually much more fun to paint these guns than the standard bolters.  The lines tend to be a little cleaner, and there are more defined shapes.

Also, you have the targeting laser sights and such, which means a spot of fluoreecent paint and OSL here and there!  You know how much I like glowy things.

The usual with the freehand on the cloaks.  Start out with middle tones, work the highlights, and then use glazes in the shadow areas to not just darken it, but unify it a little more with the background/surrounding colors, such as the dark grey robe.

These views let you see the base a little more... you remember that post!
