    Hey guys,

     

    I got good advice here a while back when looking for terrain painting advice. Once more I’m looking to the community die advice

     

    The Mantis Warriors look like this

    I’m a fan overall. Nice highlighting all over. Rust mud weathering looking great.

    I do think the green on your bike test looks a little darker than the power armour on your test marine. Although I prefer your green.

    The last point is the dash looks good but I wonder if its worth putting something on the Red screen.

    @woldenspoons

     

    Thanks!

     

    the highlighting on the green and weathering are simply drybrushing

     

    Do you think I should highlight the armour again and what should I put in the dash thing

    @mage I like it more the more I look at it. In seriousness a very harsh highlight on the sharpest edges to give it that pop would be nice but not necessary.

    As for the dash thing just something that breaks it up. Something like a yellow square I imagine. @horati0nosebl0wer is usually a good source of tips.

    I got a new paint yesterday with Conquest Magazine that might work as a good highlight for it so I might do that as my brain uploads this morning. I was late getting to bed…

     

    I  might leave it red and add something else to it. The rider’s shoulder pads will be yellow, y’see

    Anyway more progress shots. I think he’s done

     

    It’s a little rough with the finish on the green power armour but I picture them as being a little worn and rough mid Badab War after fighting for a prolonged period

    Yeah mate, it looks good! I’m in agreement with everything @woldenspoons says there. It’s a good colour for the highlighting, the green looks spot on for the Mantis Warriors.
    When I looked at the red screen this sprang to mind:

    Buuuut, I wouldn’t suggest trying to paint that!

    Maybe something like some vertical or horizontal lines. Or even just a “blip” or two? A couple of dots on the screen?

    @rayzryr I will add a dot or two of yellow but I think I would drive my self insane if I tried to do that.

     

    The bike is finished, three more bikers are on their way and the riders and the accesories have been primed on separate sub assemblies.

    You know I love the bikes, but one tiny thing…the line down the mudguards! Do you not clean them off?
