Salamanders Tactical Squad I

First squad's done, more or less. Still have to do the basing and mess with the meltabomb a bit, but I'm pretty happy with the finished result. Will have better pics when the whole commission's done.

Current commission - Salamanders Base Colors

Got the client's approval for the final draft of the base color (second picture). First picture is the initial color before any washes.

New camera, new commission, new photos

Alright, so I finally snagged a camera for this explicit purpose - a Nikon D3300. Got a great bundle on ebay. Memory, tripod, 3 lenses, and half a dozen other things. Took tonight as an opportunity to start fiddling with it and got some pictures taken. The first set was before image adjustment in photoshop, and the second is after (Did auto-color. Will likely just adjust the white balance next time I use the camera). Any advice on the photography end would be greatly appreciated, since it's far from being an interest or passion of mine, and I'm just getting started. Obviously critique on the models is welcome too. Will be working on getting some backdrops so I can get some more pics up, hopefully better quality with each new post.

Next images will likely be a small DKoK post as promised, followed by extensive work on my current heresy salamanders project.

My bad

Ok, so the DKoK posting is taking longer than anticipated...busy with the move and whatnot. Next update should have those, plus some black legion goodies :-)

Finishing up some DKoK I'll post here shortly. Wanted to do something while I wait to work on the commission. Speaking of which, I've officially got a real, solid commission pricing sheet set up!

Just an update - nothing of note the last couple weeks. We're going with some chinese bits, so before I can finish conversions and do a base coat, those have to arrive. If past experience is any indicator, they'll be here within the next month or so. Might start a small DKoK project in the meantime...we'll see.

Back in the Saddle!

Alright, personal projects are on hold for now as I revert to weekly updates on my current workload. This week marks the start of a Heresy-era Salamanders army (that isn't mine). As of right now, this means 30 tactical marines from the BaC set, as well as the praetor, chaplain and contemptor dreadnought. Rather than the five cataphractii terminators, these will be converted into two firedrakes, two primus medicae, and one chaplain for the army.

Progress right now is minimal as I wait for bits to arrive in the mail; the only real progress I can make for the time being is model assembly and getting the basing how I like it (going with an Urgall Depression theme).
