I tried to keep them very Simple. And I don't know what to write ... so just look at the pictures. :D

Bikes for Irae!?

I decided to build some bikes for Irae Scorpio. BUT I don't like Space Marine bikes ... they are ugly as hell, in my humble opinion.

So I bought some bitz, and they arrived yesterday. And here is a little preview of what my bikes will look like:

The normal SM or C:SM feet fit really well, without cutting away to much of them. But I will need some good ideas how to fit the weapons to them. We'll see ... two weeks of x-mas vacation are near and I will have plenty of time for experiments.

WIP: Imperial Fists Killteam #4

And we continue with my slow and purposeful painting progress ...

The mostly finished bases - I experimented with hair spray to rub of little of the paint from the rusted areas.

This is after airbrushing and applying a thin layer of brown wash. I don't really know yet, if I shall paint the borders of the shoulderpads black too?

The finished Bolters. It's a basecoat of VMC German Gray, followed by a black wash and highlights with 3 parts German Gray + 1 part white.

And the Heavy Bolter backpack - Here I am not quite sure either: Clean up the washed areas a little bit or leave it that way. At the moment it has this more 'used look' I think.
