Re: Tekkenotik's Sa'Cea Rra'Ka Cadre (lots of pics)

Another double post, apologies!

Lots of pics to bring to the table however!

Lets take a look at the contingent as it stands.

54 Firewarriors
10 Pathfinders
9 XV25s
Ethereal
Fireblade
Darkstrider
XV104
Ghostkeel
XV8 Commander Rra'Ka himself
XV9
3 XV8 suits
Piranha

That is a lot more models than I initially thought I had to table.. Time to get painting!

These white primed lads are on the list to be brought back to life and active service one the backlog of painting clears up. :P

Pathfinders, XV25s, Etheral, Fireblade and Darkstrider.

Lets take a closer look at whats on the paint pallet for the next few days..
Rear ranks are completed, going to update this post with some images with nicer lighting tomorrow.
Center ranks are finished base coating, need alternate colours added in the same manner as rear rank.
and Front rank got a prime and basecoat this morning, weapons and backpacks to follow.
Image

The whole team formed up.

I still have another Commander to assemble, as well as countless drones too..

That's all for this evening, trying to keep this post as up to date now as I can. I scored a week off work so some nice progress should occur over that period :D Happy viewing and thanks for stopping by! :)

I'm really digging your color scheme. It looks like you might be going a little heavy on the blue glowing effect from the photos but it might look better in person.

I'm a sucker for stealth suits, are you going to paint yours camouflaged or in standard colors?

Are you interested in doing a fluff backstory for your cadre/commander?

Thanks materpillar! :)

I'm still getting used to using the airbrush for glow effects so some of them look a little overpowered and I need to tone it down a little :P

I think I will attempt a phase shift effect on the stealth suits mixed in with a camo pattern, undecided whether to go urban digicam or splotches/tigerstripe etc.

I haven't thought of the fluff side of things yet, I think after a few more games with him he will develop himself a little story though ;)

Indeed, early indications look like this lot will be very impressive altogether.

Always nice to see a gathered for under way :)

Thank you for the kind words Tael.

So I got handy over the weekend and built a light box to take some nice photos. The end result is quite astonishing, it's incredible how a simple thing can add to the quality of photos.

enjoy the sampler!

I will play around with the lighting but at least all my future posts will have some decent, quality images :D
