Stay tuned to find out more Nick speaking and welcome to this video right time for another save by Slaanesh episode I’m going to be updating you on the work that I’ve been doing on painting my 36 Noise Marines before that though if you would like to keep up to date with the wonders of Warhammer 40k then please subscribe and hit the bell button so you don’t miss an upload okay so first of all just a massive thank you to everyone that watched my previous video in the series the truth behind saved by slaanesh the response that I got from that video was just awesome and I really appreciate all of the fantastic and kind comments that I received I also received a lot of great support from my wargamers unification facebook group I received a lot of private messages on there as well so just a massive thank you to everyone I really appreciate your support now not only did I get a lot of messages I’ve also got a fantastic gift from one of my subscribers I’m going to reveal that gift in next week’s saved by slaanesh video so make sure you tune back in for that one for this week though we are going to take a look at the work that I’ve done on my Noise Marines now after all of the support that I received on my previous video I have to say that evening I was really geed up to get to these Noise Marines painted and that night I did a big painting session and I’ve been painting these as much as possible ever since now as we take a closer look I’m sure you can see the majority of the painting that I’ve done have been metallics mainly silver and that really did feel like I was painting Necrons in actual fact one of the models even has necron head on its banner I literally did paint a necron I’ve had a lot of fun it’s been a lot of hard work everything that you see of course has had two thin coats I based the silver with boltgun metal on the guns and on the backpacks and some of the areas have got ironbreaker just to mix the silver look up a little bit I’ve still got some silver detailing to do but I’ve done a good amount of detailing on these guys now as far as the gold is concerned what you see at the moment is all base coated with balthasar gold now I’m going to show you the champions in a minute because I’ve done something slightly different with them now you probably can notice I do also have some blue painted on these models I got a little bit fed up of painting just silver and gold so I changed things up in one painting session and I went in and I painted all of the hair on these models and the hair is actually finished I went over the black with kantor blue and then I went over with altdolf blue and then altdolf blue with white mixture just to bring in those highlights now I’m painting these guys the same as I’m painting my 13th company’s space wolves because in actual fact they are wearing some Emperor’s children armor so I’ve been using these models as my base as my structure for painting the noise marines of course I’ve got a big part still left to do and that’s painting the pink the pink probably will come next now regarding the gold I of course have recently got Warhammer conquest issue 1 and in there is the retribution armor gold paint now I’ve never used this before and I’m told it’s one of the best gold paints that Games Workshop do so I thought I would try this paint out on my Noise Marines now whilst painting the gold and silver I was wondering to myself how I was going to paint the doom sirens on the Emperor’s children champions so when I got hold of this paint I thought how about I paint that’s one on the doom siren so that is what I did now as you can see this has come out rather shiny especially compared to the rest of the gold on the models I have to be honest I got a little bit concerned while I was painting these am I making the right decision they are champions after all so it doesn’t matter if they stand out however I don’t want them to stand out like a sore thumb and ruin the look of the army on the table and as I said I really did get concerned by this so I thought what I would do is I would do a test piece of how the two golds are going to look after they’ve been washed and highlighted so that’s what I did and I have to say once I’ve done that I felt a lot happier the retribution gold doesn’t look so gaudy once it’s been highlighted and the balthasar gold looks a little bit brighter and more vibrant once that has been washed and highlighted so I think these two golds are going to work together the question is am I going to bring the retribution armor gold into the Noise Marines themselves here and there maybe on some spikes or other areas of the armor or do I save the retribution gold just for the champions let me know what you think in the comments box below now as these models spin around and you already know the truth of the army I’m now going to reveal that this guy here is actually supposed to be me I have my arms in the air and I am screaming save by slaanesh now the army does feature one other person in it and I will reveal that later in the series but this other person is also responsible for me wanting green within the army now it did have a few comments regarding my demon princess how the green didn’t quite match but what you have to remember is I’m painting this army as a whole rather than as individual models so that green may not work on the model although I think it does but if you think it doesn’t what you have to remember is that the whole army is going to have little spots of green all over it so when it’s finished hopefully it will all match together okay so I really hope you enjoyed a look at these models let me know in the comments box below and if you enjoyed the video please consider subscribing hit my icon at the end
