Melta Marine by ManWithTheMetalArm
Melta Marine
Welp, I promised you guys new stuff, and here it is, one 'nilla marine with a melta gun. I'm sure many of you will recognize the color scheme by now, but for those that don't, this is the colors of my custom marine chapter, the Solar Paladins; and, unlike the last guy, I did something a little different. After I was done painting him, I put a light wash of Nuln Oil over the whole thing, and drybrushed gold paint on the gold parts, white on the white parts, and blue on the crest on his helmet. I also put Nuln Oil on the melta gun and the grenades, but I just left them alone after that. Also, I won't say what paints I used since I just started switching over to Citadel paints and this guy was painted using my old ones, plus I'm still trying to match up the colors between them. 

Also, I'm still trying to set up a studio, so for now, get used to seeing my desk. Chao!

EMPRAH! (Back View)
Just the back view of good old Chappie here.

(Also, I really need to learn how to make collages, or find a program that can help me do it)

EMPRAH! by ManWithTheMetalArm
EMPRAH!
Well, ain't this a bit of nostalgia for myself? This is one of the first miniatures I ever painted, the Interrogator Chaplain from the limited edition Dark Vengeance set, the one made for sixth edition. Even as a newbie (roughly 3 years ago), I'll admit, I did a... let's call it a "half-decent" job on this. He's not stellar, and nowhere near quality, but you can use him on the table without people cringing too much (even though GW nerfed chaplains). Don't get me wrong, he's getting a repaint sooner or later, but I think I'll keep the color scheme I gave him, with a bit of gold thrown in.

And yes, I said I'd upload some of the stuff I've recently been doing, but since my dad tore apart the only bathroom with a shower in order to remodel it, I've had to paint over at my grandparents (my mom and I were using their shower) and often only had a couple hours in the late hours of the night to paint. And we're planning on moving within the next couple of months, so that's going to slow me down as well (as if being a full time college student didn't do that enough). And don't worry, I'll try to set a make-shift studio so you don't have to look at the newspaper I paint on, maybe I'll even convince my mom to let me use her fancy, professional camera. Till next time.

Oh poor Rhino, what did I do to you? by ManWithTheMetalArm
Oh poor Rhino, what did I do to you?

Whelp, here's the old rhino I promised (or at least the front view), and I got to say I feel sorry for this tank. I got him when I first got into 40k and was the first tank I ever painted... and it shows. I inadvertently turned him into a painting experiment, and now he looks like mess. Not only did I try doing "scortch marks" by diluting black paint in water like a wash, but I stratched him up with my x-acto knife and subjected him to the Citadel Special Effects paints. As you can tell, I layed on the Typhus Corrosion to thick. I might repaint this, but not before removing the paint that's already there, as painting over it would just make it look even uliger.

I'll upload more views of it later.

I've gotten back into painting miniatures more and I've dedicated myself to posting more pictures of the ones I paint. I really plan to do more with this, so I can learn new techniques, pick up advice, and grow as a person. Expect the first thing to be an old, beat up, razorback/rhino tank that served as a paint experiment in my starting days of the hobby. But, it may take a few days, mainly because I might have to upload every single picture I took of the various sides and several close ups on the detailed paint that I did. But, if anyone knows a good program to make collages with, do inform me. I tried Gimp, but it wouldn't download, so I need another option. See you guys soon.
