Hello my Name is René,

my best friend and me started to play and paint again BFG and by looking for new ideas and models.
Im 32 years old, coming from Germany/Berlin and started playing 40k and gothic with 17. Pretty long time ago, i think my second home in that time was the gw store :lol: .

I Hope i can be part of that community, share ideas and show my Miniatures.

Here my first Ship:
Grey Knight Strike Cruiser WIP as Inquisition Ship

Hi Rene, welcome to RA!

Your painting looks pretty clean. I like that you have done highlighting but it looks like you have missed the bridge? Are you familiar with the new models that Vaaish and I are producing at http://www.battlegrouphelios.com?

Hello Zac,

yes i read that on the weekend and wrote Vaaish an E-Mail about the Armageddon Cruiser and Space Marine Strike Cruiser he painted.
He said me, that you made the parts for him and i shoud ask you if you still can make them and sell them ? :)

Is that you as well Blackwater_Hollow with the Zeus Frigs and lcruiser ?`
sry for the mass of questions :)

Battlegroup Helios is on my buyinglist as well but on the next month i think and i wait for more information about the corvettes :)

I really like the work you all do in RA and that was it why i registered here, to be part of it.

On the Picture, yes i dont know exactly what to do with the Bridge ... should i do it like a real inquisitor and paint it gold or a silver ? or just a little bit highlighting on the edges ?
Im not sure.

thx
René

btw: i dont find in the UCP the Signature tab ....

Blackwater_hollow is not me but an ebay seller who has my permission to sell copies. I'll send you an email to discuss further.

That is a good question regarding the strike cruiser bridge. Painting it gold could work, but I would try not to make it too bright. Tone it down with a lot of brown washes.

Sorry but the signature function is not available to brand new members. Once you've been here a little while and made a few posts it will become available ;)

That yellow is very bright! Do you have plans to add some shading and washes?
