Callidus and Admech

Hey everyone. Some more pics of some models painted. My callidus assassin and 2 test models for my admech imperial guard. So lets get right to it.


The flash really made the colors look a lot brighter then they are. Regardless I liked how the model turned out. Went with a dark blue suit color for fun.





These guys will be for my Admech army using imperial guard codex. The one on the left will represent flak armor and the other will be for carapace armor. The red is scab red but the flash again makes it look brighter. I will eventually take better photos of stuff in the future. The metallic part is a mixture of black and boltgun metal. I like the result. legs are high elf archer or warrior (for carapace), chest and arms are cadian and the head is elysian. You'll have to use greenstuff to blend the legs and chest together as they do not line up correctly. My greenstuff skill is poor at best but with time i think my skills will improve as I will have to make many of these guys.
Well that's it. Hope you enjoyed. Until next time.

Looking good so far. I like the look of these. The metallic mix is very effective with the red uniform. Well done.

Flash is almost always a problem with taking pictures of minis. It's best to use other light sources and turn the flash off. Here's a decent how to link:

Thanks. Yea flash really is a problem. I have a mobile set up for using lighting and a diffusal type screen. I just dont have the room for it at the moment. Think I will try making room when I have time.
