T-15 Arming Troubles

Wow! I thought that painting the "bits" of the arms would take less time than the "bits" of the bodies. I think I was wrong. It has taken me forever to get these arms completed, and they're still not done!

That being said, I am really close to being done with the arms. All I have left to do is paint the power weapons and then do the grey edge highlights on the weapons and whatnot.

So here they are in two different set ups. I am getting pretty close to gluing them on the bodies which will be pretty exciting.

Another thing I wanted to do with these guys was to add some splashes color here and there to break up the sea of blue-grey.

The power fist, chain fist and wolf claws are all done in black with red fingers (the same as I did with my Wolf Guard battle leader).

Another color I wanted to add in was green. Now I have a lot of cool colors with the blue and silver, but I thought that the green helps to make each guy's wargear personalized. While GW did an excellent job adding a lot of cool bits of in the Wolf Guard kit, there was only one ax so I had this wolf-head icon appearing a couple of times if I wasn't careful, so I did some in green and some in red.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to do this, but I think that the bone- and silver-colored Crux Terminatus was really cool looking so all of my terminators have it.

Oh, and also, some more green.

When I painted up my last Dreadnought, I commented on the fact that I didn't like the blue plasma color on my blue/grey Space Wolves. Ron from FTW suggested I go with green colored plasma, so I thought I'd give it a shot, and I gotta say I really like it! Thanks Ron, now I gotta go back and repaint all of my plasma!

But I think my army will look better for it.

Lastly, I wanted to point out my storm shields. I think they look really cool. I think the bone, and silver and gold really look good, plus they have different look to the vanilla storm shields you get with lesser chapters.

Well I don't know how much I'm going to get done tomorrow. The wife and I are heading to, "The Hottest Coolest Time in Texas" so I doubt I'll get much painting done, but I am still feeling good about getting done before War Games Con.

Until next time.


  1. I think the green looks good. The combi plasmas look good too. Is it a simple plasma pistol glued in place there?

    Ron, FTW

  2. Thanks.

    I told the combi-plasma tutorial from the Space Wolf blog.

    so yes, it is just a simple combi-plasma stuck onto a storm bolter.
