What's on my Painting Table
Just a quick update to show what I'm working on.
First off- the two-thirds done Space Wolf Predator:
Still working on this bad boy. The armour was inspired by the following :
http://blog.brushthralls.com/?page_id=3719 for the whitewash
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2010/01/its-not-black-thats-hard-to-paint.html still working on getting this right
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2011/02/freehanding-when-to-do-it.html really useful guide on freehand
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2010/02/painting-dirty-metal.html really good advice for metals
http://thepaintingcorps.blogspot.com/2010/01/friday-quick-tip-grime-streaks.html for the grime
http://thepaintingcorps.blogspot.com/2010/04/its-been-while-since-ive-really-dug-in.html love the look of the chips on this
http://thepaintingcorps.blogspot.com/2008/03/here-is-old-tutorial-from-old-painting.html an awesome guide in general- and check out that Predator!
Then there's the Blood Claws unit with leader that I'm also doing
References I've used are:

http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2010/09/weathering-icons-and-details.html not quite there yet, but figuring it out slowly
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2011/02/freehanding-when-to-do-it.html so good I'll repeat it here...
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2011/04/different-tools-for-sponge-weathering.html and I'll be using this next
http://thepaintingcorps.blogspot.com/2008/12/friday-quick-tip-metallics-and-color.html last but not least, a good link for metallics.
I'm still not happy with the faces on the infantry, and I think I went a bit far with the chipping on the Predator, but live and learn!
Just to finish up- here's a picture of a model that fits my painting from two years ago:
Those links really have been useful! Now if I can just sort out the lighting/camera issue.....
Cheers. Comments, as always, are welcome.
