|Everything going to Adepticon|
After that we have another squad of tactical marines and some scouts. The scouts were equipped with camo cloaks, but the bolter scout models don't come with them. After a failed attempt at sculpting cloaks out of green stuff (I am hopelessly useless at modeling), I found a handy tutorial for making cloaks out of tissue or similar paper products: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/286080-tutorial-capes-made-from-tissue/. I made mine using chemical wipe paper, but it's very similar to standard tissue - just slightly thicker and less likely to pill or leave lint.
All of the bases are Urban Streets bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures. I did the ice with crackle paint followed by a wash of turquoise ink and some white drybrushing. I thought about going back with a brown wash to dirty it up again, but that would take away the luster. I may need to track down a new brown ink - if anybody has any recommendations, I would be happy to hear them. The snow is actually done with baking soda and elmer's glue following this tutorial from BoLS: http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2014/04/hobby-create-realistic-snow-in-3-minutes.html. I really like the effect it gives, particularly following a brown wash around the edges and a bit of white drybrushing to hit the surface. I'll leave you here with the bases I did for my two flying units: the Nephilim and the darkshroud. I'll be back soon with necromunda photos.
