Updated this one to display level. Lots of high contrast blending to give a metallic sheen effect on the blue plates. Orange into yellow for that sharp complementary colour to catch your eyes. And finally green glow and purple to break up the blue and give some variation.

2 carriers and a dreadnought complete. There were more Sorylians from previous commissions with similar schemes. These ones got more battle damage. Carriers got runway lines and the dreadnought got an old US navy logo.

A group of Xelocian Imperium ships complete. A nice big dreadnought and a few cruisers. The last batch of ships will be some battle-worn Sorylian carriers and a larger ship.

I finally got my new photo backdrops in from Tablewar, the Macromats. Very nice, large mouse pad material and it comes with a stand!

The Leviathan is complete. A very cool and satisfying super-sized Dreadnought to paint. Magnetized weapons with base decor. Next, Kharn and his boys!

Dreadnought shuffles along the road. All the weapons are interchangeable. Added blood to the chainsaw, and splatter to the hull. Dirt to the legs as well. I used my road marking stencil to help me paint the arrow and stripes on the base. The same stripes will be used to do hazard stripes on the door trim of the drop pods.

A single Space Marine Ironclad Dreadnought done at display standard. I chose Imperial Fist colours because I haven’t done yellow in a long time and it easily stands out. This was also a rare opportunity to use weathering powders and other techniques to make it look like it fit in the scene of destroyed urban streets. This was the first time I got to use my newly acquired stencils, being the street markings on the base.

The chainsaw has copious amounts of gore on it as well as a more-than-subtle splatter effect on the left side of the dreadnought. Almost as if the blood would be mostly on the side when it eviscerates people. The final detail was in the form of a decal on the Hurricane Bolter side denoting “V”. Whatever the viewer may interpret that as.

All in all, I am very pleased with this piece and had lots of fun painting it on stream for my viewers to enjoy. They loved witnessing the process and I loved explaining my steps and thought process to them.

Group shots! Such a diverse set of models. The Pathogen ships were nice to paint. I hope Spartan Games does more with them.

Finally complete these heavy hitters for the Terran fleet. Of course, due to white on almost white, no one can see the highlighting on camera. Next, infested ships and a Sorylian ship.

This was supposed to go up yesterday, but internet was on the fritz 😦

Now, the support fleet of the Ottoman empire is complete. The dreadnought and its accompanying cruisers sit finished and pretty. The dreadnought was quite the behemoth to paint. Like the cruisers, the dreadnought has a cathedral on top of the hull. It makes for an interesting ship to look at and adds to the detail. Next up, Firestorm Armada!

Done this commission! I like to batch paint, consequently, the updates are fewer, but more is shown at once.

The latter half of the commission were the larger ships. RSN Battleships, Carriers and fighters, and a Dreadnought; and a Sorylian Battleship. I’m liking the RSN ships. I look forward to future Firestorm commissions.
