Hi everyone Very Happy

This is my test model for the army throwdown challenge. Painted the mk3 armor first because I really love the helmet. But am painting a suqad of 10 men in Mk2. The Mk3s will be used for my breacher squad.
Appreciate any and all comments. Many thanks to Rizal for the base.

Very nice indeed. The sight should be awesome when you see the full squad together.

That base is also nicely done.. I wonder what he used for that metal bar

Starting an Imperial Fists army myself and now the bar has been raised. Mind sharing your secret to that nice yellow? And very good work on making it pre heresy looking.

Thanks for the comments guys. Really appreciate it.

Kadir- Rizal used the 'I' shaped plastic rod/beam from the GF9 plastic variety pack. You can check it out here. Picture isn't too clear though.

beobot- i airbrush vallejo game color sun yellow(72006) followed by gold yellow(72007) to softly darken the recessed or bottom areas. I almost exclusively use vallejo game colors at the moment. Have you painted any of your fist yet? Do share your progress with us Smile

No worries- just a gentle reminder.

Khairul, when are you going to post pics of the four NEW Imperial Fist marines you've shown me...? Smile

Not sure what you're talking about. They're still on sprues. I'm so behind on this project it's not even funny.....i'll definitely try my bestest for the 18th throwdown.
All participants should take it easy and paint at your own pace. Don't over do it hehehe Wink

First squad is completed and was unveiled during last Friday's throwdown.






As it turned out, this squad was voted best painted for the night Smile. Must be the display base hahaha.
I'd like to thank everyone who showed up and made the event a success. A very heartfelt appreciation to everyone who voted for me.
Now on to the next throwdown.

For the emperor and dorn!!!
