Emperors Pride - Test Model

 Right, so I painted one of the models that came from the cheap eBay combo acquisition of a Landraider, a Dreadnought and 5 Terminators. I figured it was time to try out the paint scheme, or as close as I could get with the paints I have in my possession at the moment.

Painting is basic, as I haven´t done so in a while and I never was very skilled (as I keep saying so I will drop that now).

Also the lighting might be off due to it being cloudy out and me lacking proper lighting for picture purposes. Listing all this makes me wonder why I even bothered to take the pictures and put them up in the first place. I have to say though that having it sitting here I think it looks pretty good. Not as awesome as some but still I am quite happy with it.

Do note that because this is one of the test models (and was already painted when I got it....and with a terrible paintjob) I had to paint over the existing paint as well as not having the Scibor pieces I ordered. So the actual army models will have a nicer base as well as some additional conversion pieces attached. And no, I didn´t paint the stormbolter yet as I am not sure what color to make it yet.

So far so good right?


  1. Looking back at the model and looking it over more carefully I can already see a lot of stuff I either missed or rushed over that requires some touching up. Ah well.

  2. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD INVEST IN SOME SIMPLE GREEN!!!! Strips paint off like a CHAMP, and doesn't hurt the models AT ALL. Seriously, you're KILLING me here lol. It makes all the difference, having that initial, flat, smooth surface to paint everything from. Also helps prevent color seepage from those terrible first paint jobs that make us all want to repaint them in the first place.

  3. Haha! :)

    Well the reason I called it a test model is because these terrible pre painted ones will Not be a part of the army, those will all be newly assembled. If you came here due to my post on Dakka..this isnt my Cyclone Termie! :P That one is in my Dakka thread ^^

  4. Lol I know which one is which. Just checkin out the lot. Well, if you're not going to use those termies in the final project, I'm in need of some for conversions for my IM. Lemme know!
