Squaduary... nearly there

Bit of a delayed update this week (soz Rory..) but I'm nearly there with my squad of Raptors. Last week I got the transfers, washes and a bit of highlighting done, Just the bases and the power sword remain now...

Thanks for reading!


  1. Nice job, coming together nicely. I'm nearly done with RTB01 too. Like the power weapon blues, it really pops out of an otherwise (nice) drab warmongering scheme.

  2. Cheers dude! I was checking out your missile launcher chaps earlier. They're looking really good too!

    Not sure what I'm going to do with the power weapon. I need to add some sort of variation, but I'm not sure what to try.

    1. Check out Warhammer TV, Duncan had an episode about painting power weapons without an Airbrush, ( https://youtu.be/u7e4_-oRMtI ) and he does one in the Custodes video too. ( https://youtu.be/dm8J-kaezWM ) Or go for an effect like your third pic shows, the back half of blade slightly darker, thin lighter line on ridge and cutting edge? Alternatively try a wash of blue or glaze of a darker blue and let it settle toward the hilt end?

    2. Cheers for the pointers. I had a go at doing a bit of shading on the sword, but then forgot to do any additional highlighting. Oh well, all practice is good practice

  3. Excellent progress! Squad looks amazing!
