    ckpmax1108 got a reaction from vonHymack in 118th "Shattered Heart" (Ken's Dindrenzi)   
    Minor Update:
     
    Basecoated (well...base-sprayed) my Heavy Helix. Did the masking a bit differently from my core to differentiate the Helix with them.
     

     
    Masked them to have 3 paralel dark sections running along the tanks, unlike the core that has them in a chevron pattern running across.
     

     
    Shown here is the difference between the Circe tanks

    Update:
     
    Lighting is a bit off on the pics, but hopefully its clear enough.
    Drop pods are done, which brings my half helix done.
     
    Pics for ya:

    And with that, an update as well. (Because of the stupid image limit, I had to double post, grumble grumble grumble...)
     
    Done the 3 Eris', which puts the mobile armoured section of the half-core done.
     
     

     
    This is what I currently have. It's been slow going, but it is at a consistent pace. Next are the Nyx infantry and their drop pods. After that is the Heavy helix.

     
    Let me know what you guys think!

    The Naval units are tons fun, highly maneuverable skimmers with shields as standard is pretty sweet!
    Their gunnery falls off quick at RB3, so RB 1-2 is your sweet spot for ship murder. Plus with their speed you could literally escort any opposing ship side-by-side and keep firing at it (Close Quarters Gunnery is the bomb!).
     
    Do remember that even if they have shields, treat them as glass cannons. Dedicated fire on one of your ships WILL bring it down (though this is true for most things), so use the terrain to block off firing lanes, and hop on and off them when you need to bear fire.
     
    Fliers are great. PLC fliers are reliable. They'll catch fire like dry grass, but that's fire off your other force. Obscure them as much as you can. Most if not all have Evasive Maneuvers +1, so drop down, shoot, ascend, repeat. Take advantage of this fact, because balloons!
     
    Heavy flamethrowers are your friend. They never lose gas, can combine fire, can re-roll (with our Doctrine) and ruins ship AP hard for fun boarding shenanigans. Also, if your bearing it down ships with low to zero AP counts, this can potentially sink any ship in the game, because fire. (I believe even Isolated Systems can't stop us, since it's not technically a critical roll, nor a critical effect, and is built in to the weapon?...Can anyone clarify this?). Also don't forget that they're Terrifying. Forcing disorders is potential D3 more damage to the ship. Regardless if they choose AP to kill off the disorder, the fire they have will potentially kill off the rest and hopefully creep into it's HP. 
     
    Plus Incendiary munitions is a very reliable MAR, each flaming marker is a potential HP/AP loss, and that's just by matching a ships DR. Very good.
     
    For purchases though, do get both boxes as each benefits from one of your commodore abilities more than the other. Independent Initiative for your Naval (as most firepower that would cause stuff to get disordered will be directed at your more fragile ships, than obscured fliers with shields), while Fuel Tank-whatever that makes you re-roll Flamethrower dice will only ever benefit your fliers, SINCE THE ZAMIEC AND GRYF ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT HAVE ACCESS TO FLAMETHROWERS
    (I think their landship has it too, but who cares about that)
     
    Also get another Dazbog (because its a really reliable ship), and another squad of Bagienniks (cause you don't wanna be in a situation with 1 squad of smalls, and your opponent happens to have "Thin their Ranks" as their order). So getting another Naval box, wouldn't be a bad call.

    Its a plastic cup system developed by (...is it ok to name a different minis company here?) Hawk Wargames. Its their flight widgets. Pop it in the connection holes with some CA glue/some green stuff and BAM, stress-free transportation of skimming/flying models.
     
    Might need to sand down the tip of the flight peg a bit, as it is incredibly snug even if you do that.

    So finished my 1250 Russians for my tourney! Woohoo!!!
     
    Got a bit bored, and decided to at least start the Aussie & HEC schemes. These are really rough splashes of paint, and I tried doing something new for each one:
     
    First for the Aussies. I did a wet blend on the main hull areas only and did my basic block painting to the other areas. Teclis blue, wet-blending 50/50 torquoise and white. The metal areas are dark metal + blood red. Other blue areas will be in a blue/grey scheme.

     
    For an accent...well...I'll keep that for myself for now.
     
    For the HEC. I did layered washes on silver, as I did it as a base, layered sepia wash, then layered a green wash over that. Re-applied silver as a light pass through the raised areas. Wing tips and tarp will be base white. And the undercarriage/hull portions will be in a chocolate brown.

    So I still haven't gotten a reply from Spartan regarding my mispack :/
     
    ...so I preoccupied myself with actually progressing my Dindrenzi.
    Finished my Nausica Battleship "DNS- Aphrodite" and pretty happy with the results. Basically applied what I've done with my Planetfall army.
     

     
    Don't have an airbrush..still, so I went ahead and did the engine glow via drybrush method.
     


     
    Also did a bit of freehand for the ship name and the fleet symbol. Nothing too fancy.

    So kiddies, gather round for update time:
     
    Finally figured out how to proceed with the scheme....well most of it anyways
    Leadbelcher/boltgun metal on the broadsides, gun racks, engine, metal-y bits Wash the whole thing in Nuln Oil/Black Ink (as messily as I can make it) Edge highlight red areas with Blood red/Mephiston red Edge highlight sharp corners with 50/50 red and white Wash the red areas with Baal red/Carranborg crimson/red ink Paint the glass in something or other colour...I don't know Do random OSL if I feel like it Didn't do the red ink wash as of yet, since I'm still trying to finish the edge highlight (a laborious process for a sleepy mind)
     

     
    So as I'm slowly drifting to slumber land, I pose a question.
     
    What do you guys think a better glass tint would be?
    Very light blue to a gradual green blue shade (cause icy blues are pleasing to the eyes) Very light green to a darker green shade (since it's a strict contrast to red)  
    Anyways, feel free to leave a comment/like/dislike/violent reaction to me as an individual....etc.
     
    ...and with that...goodnight zzzZZZ

    Right now the big update has been that I worked a little more on the "Medical Ship" and can say its coming along nicely.  Second coats of paint will be applied tonight and then a wash followed by highlights and detail work.

    Incredibly minor update:
     
    Found an awesome shade of purple primer!
     

     
    The primer is more of the middle complimentary colour of my scheme, but it makes it easier for me to just base into the recesses and shadows, and wash to blend it all together.
