Non-Sketchy Photo Time!

So my computer is finally repaired. Which means...

Non-sketchy photo time! And regular updates!

So, for the next few days to get me back on track, I'll be posting pics of my entries into TOEMP, and then get started again on the WIP for the last challenge and the next one. So for today, enjoy the first quality pics of the Black Jacks stormtrooper unit!

The Sarge in Charge

Backpack detail shot

Special Weapons Troopers

The "Inquisitorial Js" that are the symbol of the Black Jacks, who are on loan from the Ordos Malleus

And the spades to show what suit they are

Next up for me is a pair of Leman Russ Battle Tanks. These are the first vehicles that I have ever painted, and currently I am paralyzed as to what I should do for a color scheme. I know that the majority of the tank should be tan and bleached bone, which I can easily do with spray paints, but what exactly that scheme should be is eluding me. Details will be made out with black and red, but once again not sure what to do there.

Here's what I got so far:

I think I'll have the lighter color go all the way down to the treads on both sides in this current scheme. The other that I've thought about is more of a chamo style, but I'm not sure of which I should go for.

Thoughts, comments and criticisms are always welcome.

Nice! I am a big fan of the Kasrkin models, and I really like what you've done with them. The 'Inquisitorial J' is a nice touch, too.

Keep up the great work!
