Looks even better in person than it does in this pic.  Nice job Rob!

Always heartwarming to see some nicely done Marauders like these!  [rockon]

Regarding how to do yellow, there was an excellent tutorial by jjpens, but apparently the link has gone dead. Does anyone know if it's been posted somewhere again? I hate to lose my archived pages...

Very nice yellow - I think the sheer size of the pic is making it look a bit grainy. As for the beads, that's a good idea; I think I have some seed beads lying around the house from one of my other projects, will try it on my bashed Maddy

What are those sticking out fo the base?  Not in figures but those long tulip looking things?

PS can we get more awesome Marauders in this thread?

Looks like florist's wire with a dollop of glue on the end.

Pretty close: toothbrush bristles with a drop of Zap-a-gap.  Makes great waterside foliage (there's a tiny pond next to it, but it's very hard to make out in the pic).
Every time a grognard comes to realise the game can't survive purely on his dog-eared copy of the Warrior Trilogy, duct-taped CityTech boxed set and personal sense of spite and has taken a tack of mild concern for the future marketability of the game...an angel gets its wings.

Black wash does not work with yellow. You actually want a chestnut or flesh wash to get the best effect.
Seconded. I have been getting good results using GW's Dark Flesh to shade yellow.

To make up for the lack of panel lines you could try to apply a few controlled washes of Dark Flesh where natural shadows would be, for example towards the underside of the torso or below the turbine/tank/whatever thingies, the sides of the weapon pods on the arms, ... This would break up the yellow and add more depth to the miniature.

Impressive work with a difficult color nonetheless :) I really like how the infantry miniatures give a sense of scale. They really make the Marauder look huge.

Ahhh, the classic Marauder.  Nice to see one of those every now and then.
Nice job on the base.

I can do desert yellow! But bright yellow - too hard! Maybe it's time to be challenged.

What other units have a primarily yellow scheme? Wolf's Dragoon's Aerospace fighters are "canary" yellow,Lyran Alliance 1st Coventry Jaegers quickly spring to mind. Anyone want to give it a go and post a picture? Rather than just talk about it .....
