Stormboyz WIP by Alex

Post  Guest on Fri May 21, 2010 5:32 pm

These is the beginning of my stormboyz mob which I only really got because the Warbikes are way expensive ;( however they have surprised me, they're very good models, the sculpts are nice, and the heads are funky, and if its one thing about Warhammer40k, the heads have to have a very character funky feel to it or I feel the model looks dull and boring. Even though Stormboyz are just regular squads, and most regular squads have dull cookie cutter heads - they're gimmick is freaking "We strap rockets to our backs and fly off shouting WAAAGH!" if that's not character enough I don't know what is.









Yes, the top Stormboy has a Nobz Power-Klaw... and yeah, it looks huge on him. Razz

Any C&C?

filing the mold lines some more would be a good idea. And this is just personal preference but I think the guns look way better when you drill out the gun barrels

The painting is decent, the skin and eyes look OK. Some places need to be a little neater, like the chest of one of your models you've gto some red paint on some of the metalic areas.

But those mold lines MUST come off! With the lines left on the figs will always look poor, no matter how well you paint them.

But this makes me curious, do you prime your mini's? Seeing a mini with the torso painted to completion but then with unprimed arms glued on makes me woder if you're going to prime them.

I prefer spray primer, which would be out in this case as it just covers what you've already done on the torso's, but even a brush on primer would be a vast improvement over applying paint onto bare plastic.

I do prime, but I do it weird lol my heads and arms I prime wither white or grey so the skin pops in a way.
and my bodies I prime black.

So how are you going to prime the arms now that they're on the bodies? Or are they just tacked on? I guess if it works for you than keep it up but I don't think the two seperate colours for priming is something I'd reccomend. But of course, they're your figs!

Well they are actually just tacked on. if it were a normal boy I'd do it all black, or grot or something, but when you need to get that skin to really pop out from all the other dark colors, I like doing the white primer.
