More work on New Year's resolutions! Close combat terminators after the break!
Have had these sealed in box for over a year. I swore to manage my grey tide this year, and here we are.
Like my Tau pathfinders, Crisis bodyguards, and Necron Deathmarks, I wanted to paint this squad in a different (but complimentary) scheme to set them apart from the main force. Dark Angels terminators are a great example of this concept.
Instead of oil washing the parts and wiping them, I actually just used GW shades and a very fine brush to darken all the details and panel joints. Whenever it got a little out of control, I just waited until it dried, and touched it up with white.
I kept the models in sub assemblies to allow me to reach all the small areas. Working around a completed model can sometimes be more hassle than it's worth.
Having the heads and arms separate and pinned to corks allows me to rotate the piece to any angle I need, and makes detailing much easier.
These guys should be wrapped up and table ready by the end of the week!
