Deathshroud and Typhus… Complete!

Due to work and university commitments, it’s taken a little while to finish these. But, I can’t help but be delighted with them. The Deathshroud are lovely models and have been a joy to paint – and it’s been great to actually have such positive comments about them. I feel I’ve massively improved even over the space of months, and so hopefully you’ll be able to see that paying off now!

I actually went and found a couple of old photos… when Typhus was first released, I naturally got him straight away – and this was perhaps the height of my painting skills at the time:

I hope that viewing both him and the Deathshroud now will be far more pleasing to the eye!

So, after building them and stripping Typhus, in December, they looked like this:

WIP

They were freshly prepared – newly glued, and all ready to be sprayed. It only took until March to get them sprayed… but I work quickly!

Here’s the first WIP shot of the bunch:

Naturally, there were a lot of things to tidy – and a revised shot before the second wash had them looking like this:

WIP2

After this, I needed to tidy up the bases and do the detailing, give them their second wash and finally pick out the lenses with OSL. I actually toned it down for these, but I think the muted OSL still makes them look great!

Anyway, please have a look at the finished articles – bar perhaps the odd detail!

Hope you like them anyway – with all comments and criticism gratefully received!

Right, ages and ages ago… I started this!

But now, I’ve actually cleaned them, put them together and greenstuffed the little problem gaps etc. so they look pretty cohesive over all, and I’m happy! There are a couple of tiny bits to finish off (as I’m out of liquid GS) – one or two mould lines that have been removed since the photos were taken, but overall, nearly ready to get basecoated. I actually decided against using alternative backpacks – although naturally, as I too had been warned, it’s not a perfect fit onto the standard Space Marine backpack. But, I think the Legion Autocannon set looks awesome – and love the overall look – so I can’t grumble!

The biggest problem was sorting this… now it’s closer to a feed into the back than the bottom:

But hopefully, they all look pretty reasonable together!Havocs 5

I’ll tidy up the last few things when I’ve got a fresh supply of Green Stuff, and then get these sprayed and get them painted up for action.
