I so want to paint up an Emperor's Children Chaos army, but knowing the noise marines will need kit bashing with the finecast upgrade set, or overspending at forgeworld, really put me off, at least for now.

Shame GW ruined the Chad Primaris vs Virgin Firstborn memes by giving firstborn 2 wounds now, but equally, non primaris now feel way more viable for collecting again.

I went with resin third-party bits and trawling ebay, especially to go down the more 80s mohawk and guitar angle:

The paint job looks worse on camera and nowhere near as good as a lot of people, but I'm happy with the 30 or so I have now.

Aye, the hot pink and leopardprint looks boss. Must make for a really striking army on the table.

So happy with how these turned out. Wasn't really enjoying them initially when I was doing the first green base coat, but all the details really bring them together, and I'm especially pleased with the home blended pink/purple wash for the gross tentacle bits.

What's your lighting setup? My painting area has the worst lighting in the world for taking good pictures.

I prop open a small sketchbook in my home office room, because it gets a lot of light all afternoon. Just draw the curtains part way so the models aren't in direct sun, but it's still bright.

I need to take more photos, I've done quite a lot since my last post, your DG reminded me of my yellow, rust and black goo-themed DG kill team i spent ages on and haven't shared yet, among other things.

Daylight is best but knoy also knows cameras.

You can effectively bounce light things with an improvised infinity wall like that. Make a big difference.

My brother is starting to get me back into 40k, so I might take a look at the new Necron stuff coming out next month.

I picked up the new starter set, and I'm really enjoying painting up the new necrons in that, much more than I expected. Tempted to pick up more myself once the new releases arrive and I'm happy with a colour scheme.

You can get the Necron halves of the now OOP Indomitus box for not very much as everyone's dumped them in favour of Space Marines. I may have picked up one...then another....then the old start collecting Necrons and two boxes of Immortals :shifty: .

I posted it in the prized possessions thread but thought i'd put in here too as it may be more appreciated, but recently I spontaneously picked up a white whale of a model that was for sale for a great price on a facebook trading group:

Also did a mammoth undercoating session for my 30k army, although I think I have mild nerve damage in my hand from holding the spray can nozzle down for so long, so back to the airbrush I think. :|
