That Steg is looking mighty fine!
Which orange paint did you use for the Steg's skin?
It's not super saturated, I wanted it to feel sort of natural.
Thank you. I used a mixture of Imperial Fists and Blood Angels Red contrast paints through my airbrush. This was over a zenithal base coat going from red-brown, through a bone colour, up to white on the highest points.
Those are looking amazing!! Your detail work is flawless.
I love the color combinations used.
Here's some pics of where each magnet is placed.
Here are the ones on the Stegadon itself and the howdah:
And here are the separate magnetised pieces.
The bow and the crest which are swappable:
The standard crew Skink and the Skink Chief which are interchangeable:
Here's the blowpipes and the skulls that I added to cover the magnets when the bow is being used instead:
And lastly, the quiver and the alternative shields to swap on when the bow isn't in use:
Thank you! That's very clever and helpful.
Very helpful indeed.
Those magnets in the feet of the skinks look very fragile to place. Was it easier than it looks?
This makes me want to continue my Stegadon.
The magnets on the feet are only 1mm thick. You just need to shave down the bottom of the foot a tiny bit and then super glue them straight onto the bottom the foot. Not too fiddly tbh. You definitely should finish yours
Yeah, that is doable. It looked like it was drilled in a bit
Sorry to keep bugging you about the magnets. Are they all 1mm magnets? If not, do you possibly remember the sizes of them? Thanks!
Not a problem
The majority are 3x1mm magnets, apart from: the two in the Stegadon's back, the one in the floor of the howdah and the ones on the bottom of the blowpipes. Those are 3x2mm I believe.
Thank you, again!
Recently painted these reinforcements for my Clone army. The best soldiers in the 212th arrive on Felucia to support the war effort.
Here are Commander Cody, along with clone troopers Waxer and Boil.
Awesome work, as always
I've been working on a second set of Saurus command models and a couple of unit fillers so that I can split my Saurus into 2 decent sized units.
Here are the command models:
Here are the 2 unit fillers:
Absolutely love those shields! Also that rustic (probably) roadsign from banners on filler is great touch.
I wanted t to have the feel of being an abandoned totem lost long ago. Love the idea that its a lizardy road sign though
I've finished another 2 units of STAP Riders for my Separatists.
Here's the first one:
