My Armies: Imperial Fists



1st Tactical Squad

2nd Tactical Squad

That is the army for now. I will update this post as the army grows.

Awesome, have you checked out my army pages?
You're the first person I've seen trying it too.

That looks very very nice. It looks even nicer on a gaming table, Imperial Fists always gets attention:) A very nice and clean paint job. I personally prefer the yellow crisp (plus any weathering) and find that dipping or a lot of washing ruins the look.

I look forward to more!

@Flekkzo I favour more of a dirty look with mine rather than just out the paint workshop haha.

@Tristan - I like how you did your army pages, I may have to try that as opposed to how I have done mine. I really like your Crimson Fists

@Flekkzo - Thank you for the compliments. I have a very simple technique for the yellow I use. Prime white, then watered down golden yellow followed by gryphonne sepie wash. It does make the models a little dirty looking but I like how it makes the golden yellow look and I like the gritty feel to the models.

@Warflake - More are coming as soon as I get some more white primer.

Your bias for Dorn is obvious ;) my aim is to get all of the 40K pages to the level of my Novamarines. Blood Bowl is probably the most fully done considering all pages for a particular game.

@Warflake There's dirty and there's worn and weathered. I used to like just pristine out of the Phalanx, but I have grown more and more interested in weathering. I like to try to give them a slightly worn look, and maybe some fresh dirt/grit. Not the un-maintained look of the Orks, some Chaos, and to some degree the Imperial Guard.

@Meatball Sounds like the same formula I use, with a sunburst yellow highlight. I don't think the highlight is noticeable enough though, so I am more than likely going to go to a lighter one in the future. Think Bleach Bone :)

@Tristan Whose? Warflake, Meatball, or me? :)
