PoisonTail's Dropstuff P&M Thread (Tomahawks)

PostThu Feb 09, 2017 2:30 pm

Hi all,

With more and more stuff in the works, and with progress being more and more steady I thought I'd start a painting thread here to make the progress maybe a bit more dynamic.

The main theme will be Shaltari. (At least for now... :) )

2017-02-09 - Starting Point & Pungari
2017-02-15 - Coyote / Ramses Commander
2017-07-28 - Tomahawks

Thanks for looking! And feel free comment!

Let's start with the current state of my Shaltari force - which I call the Iceni tribe, led by Boudicca:

And my last project, some Pungari auxiliaries:

On the painting table is Boudicca in her Ramses Coyote... Let's see when I get that done :D

Very, very nice.
I've seen similar paint schemes - but your execution is flawless and really sticks out.

The models have a nice "glow" to them and the glowing orange border around the completely black paddles is a great touch!

+ I will steal your basing idea :? :D

I agree with Joe, i really like the way you did the orange highlights and the antigrav paddles really stand out like that.

Definitely looking forward to seeing more :)

Thanks! I always liked the bright orange of the Shaltari studio army, but didn't want to copy it. The "paddles" also have a discrete distribution of blue dots, which I think helps the orange and yellow to pop a bit more.

If you are looking for some basing ideas, I must show a friend's UCM basing:

That marble is crazy! The squad to the left also has a small table... :!:

Got my commander painted up! Went for a Coyote/Ramses. Just for that little extra, which also helps distinguish the Coyotes from the Jaguars in the long run.

Thanks! The contrasting blue is the key to make the orange/yellow go Snap, Crackle and Pop!
