CannonofDoom's 40K Imperial Fists PLOG
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:52:36 AM »
I start my return journey into the 41st Millennium with a quick and dirty tactic for painting yellow, and lots of washes and drybrushing to get tabletop quality.

Please help me stay motivated, as that's my constant struggle.

First few completed models:

A Relic Contemptor:

A couple Vanguard Veterans:

Chaplain:

I love the yellow! One of my friends wants to start an Imperial Fist force so I showed him your dread. He's blown away!

Thank you for the amazing compliments!  :icon_redface:


You guys are going to be unimpressed when I tell you how I achieve the yellow you have been praising me over.
Start with White Primer, I use good old DupliColor Sandable Primer.
One coat of Vallejo MC 70.953 Flat Yellow
One wash of Citadel Reikland Fleshshade
Drybrush of Vallejo MC 70.953 Flat Yellow
Done.






Here's a Progress shot, with lots of Troops being done all at once.

You make Dorn proud. These snipers sure look intimidating. So many .50 cal. rifles. :blush:

Neat! In my first and only game of 8th edition I' ve played so far, my orks stood against Imperial Fists too. Those bastards...:D

In matter of finding motivation for painting I suggest working on groups of  only 5-10 models at one time. It definitely works for me...

Aargh! Beautiful all the same. I've just done some work with transfers and I don't find them forgiving.

I love it!

IF are my favorite chapter, though Dorn is not my favorite Primarch.

Nah, Lysander sucks. I'm sticking with a captain I can customize and make a Chapter Master for the re-rolls.
