Nice one bud! Those kits look like a lot of fun to build and paint. Gonna be a sick looking force when it's done. Next step, a repusler!

Thanks guys.  :)

I am looking forward to getting a Repulser.  And maybe the dreadnaught too!

I've also been told to drill my gun barrels.  Think I should?  Of course I should.  But is it ok after painting?  Oh, and I ordered my shoulder pads from shapeways.  They're on their way, and I can't wait to stick them on!

I didn't assemble any more miniatures today but I did do a doodle of a primus marine.  I like doodling.  :)

Sweet. Love this project Tangi. Yeah I'm all about that Dreadnought. I'm getting one 100% for my DA. Its a must for me. BTW are the old Marine shoulder pads Primaris compatible? I think the newer Chapter upgrade ones are.... Been wondering about that. Don't know anyone personally with Primaris

Thanks for the support Cav!  :)

Latest update, my 'roaring lions' chapter badges from shapeways arrived!  They look to be primris compatible, but they're clear resin, so I'm not quite sure how to stick them on.  Superglue?  Also, they'll be white, so if anyone has good advice on how to paint white I'd love to hear it.  Oh, and is it better to paint them on the frame and then stick them on, or just stick them straight on and paint them?

Celestra Grey is your best friend here Cap. Use a Celestra grey base for any white bits. You can then just use a couple of thin White Scar layers to build up the white. Leave any areas you want to be shaded with the Celestra Grey and you're pretty much done.

I would tend to stick them on and then paint them, unless to do so would make painting nay element of the model more difficult. I find if I try to paint something and then glue it together, I run the risk of damaging the paint work with either glue or my grubby fingers*


Best of luck with those shoulders Cap, they look great!

G'day Cap!
Oh my yes. They will look good. Agree with Looshkin with the grey. Experiment with gluing on the badge with just one model, then painting it. Paint the next one off the pad and then glue. Whichever is more comfortable for you, go for it. Looking forward to seeing the finished project... Pointy ears forever!!

Thank you very much for the advice guys.  :)

Just one more question, to prime in black on the frame.  Yes or no?

Oh wait, something else.  I’m also working on the purity seals.  I was advised to use screamer pink on the seal for that ‘waxy’ effect.  What else should I be using on this?

How dirty do you want the white to look? If it's pretty clean then Loosh and Saim Dann have you covered ;)

If you want a more dirty white then I've had success with Pallid Wych Flesh, Nuln Oil wash and then a drybrush re-highlight of Pallid Wych Flesh again ;)

G'day Cap!
Nice suggestion, Ynnead
For the purity seal, am assuming you know to wash it first and are only talking about the colours afterward. Have been known to second highlight with the finest of white lines/dots on the top edges.

Depends what colour works for your minis. I think red, purple or pink may work for you well enough.

You can actually a shiny, waxy finish by using enough nun oil/agrax earthshade, or just by using the gloss variants. Just base colour, wash and a fine, subtle edge highlight (only the top of the seal, where it would naturally reflect light...same as metallic armour).

As for the undercoat, I'd go for a white undercoat before going back to it with Celestra Grey. It'll provide a far smoother finish and require fewer coats to achieve a nice effect. White over black is just hard work that you can probably avoid.
