In a flash of productivity I've built an iron havoc lascannon squad to use in a coils list I'm planning.

I am consistently pleased with even a small group of iron havocs. They can completely melt Spartans and the like in large numbers when packing las cannons.

I have a question about how you do the white stripes on your vehicles. Do you do your blue first and then tape everything up, only leaving the spaces you want the white on? Or do you do white areas first, tape over it and then do the blue?

Ed: forgive me if you ve answered this previously, though I check your posts frequently I usually am so blown away by your work that I lost the ability to read :P

Going off the chipping I'd say blue first.


This army is looking awesome mate. Am looking forward to seeing those Las painted. Are they gonna be blue or IW colours?

Thanks! Mike is right, I do the blue first before taping up the white areas. I then airbrush a bit of chipping medium before airbrushing the white, which is vallejo pale blue-grey blended up to pure white.

They're going to be in the teal/blue Alpha colours. I've made them using headhunter bits, they represent a veteran heavy support squad in my army background.

For something a bit different in terms of hobby progress I've gotten the body for a contemptor mostly done. All that's left is to do an oil wash on the dark metal areas and hilight it, and a bit of dirtying up with oil paints. Then I've got two volkite arms to do for this guy.

I've finished the 5 lernaeans I was working on from way back. I experimented with press molding the targeting lens things from the headhunter helmets onto the terminator helmets for this, and I don't think it really turned out that well. The extra stuff makes everything a bit too bulky and busy looking. I think I'm going to just use stock helmets for the next 5.
