Thanks Guys!

Just need some paint now!

@ Sev: Here's a back pic - hope that's useful.

The parts list is...
Dire avenger legs (with necron leg bionic foot), DE Kabalite warrior body (female), Dire avenger sword, DE Kabalite sword, DE heavy weapons backpack, Necron head (with chin chopped off), Long hair from my bitz box (no idea on the source).

@ Edward: The base model for the astropath is from the forgeworld Hector Rex set (he is one of three little helpers for the inquisitor).

I might do one more model as I have an ideas for the Apostate Preacher to become some kind of negotiator/recruitment officer.

Cheers Laney cheers

Thats looking great Laney. The green tint in the gold is perfect. The only suggestion I have is in order to compliment the rose and tone down the red I would add a red stripe to the leg and red dots in the center of the eyes on the peacock feathers. Right now the red is just too dominating and distracts from the rest of the model.

Your WiP is BETTER than what I call "finished"... ohhh, wait. I don't paint anymore! Just Kidding


I'm pathetic!! Sad


Great work man. The verigris patena on the gun... AMAZING! And the peacock feathers... WOW! I think you will highlight the rose with orange and pink. If so, then it would be amazing.

OHHHH!!! I got a trick! Try it somewhere else first... but it works!

The final effect is an 'irridicent' color... changes with angle. Kindda like a peacock feather. HINT! It was an accident, I reproduced it. You see, they tell you to WASH AND CLEAN your brush very well after you paint with a metallic color... right? Well I was painting this shield, then I painted the gold-leafs... and then I was going to wash the green areas with a dark green wash. Stupid me, I forgot to clean my brush very well. So, when I dipped my brush on the wash, I contaminated it with the gold metallic pigments. Idiot me, I did not saw it until I finished painting the shield. I got REALLY MAD and walk out. I came back to re-paint, when I saw the effect...


The pictures does NOT do it justice (I know... the Space Marine Champion looks like shit... I'm talking about the shield!) If you tilt the model, the few flakes on the shield (they are fairly separated) catch the light and shine. It is a weird color. I have done it with gold and silver (mithryl)... in this, the rule is LESS IS MORE. Check my Trygon's carapaces. (LINK)




OK... this is how I did it.
1) Put some of the Wash on a tray. No need to ruin the rest of your wash! I use (used?!?) Vallejo, so I always put it on my paint tray.
2) Dip your 'metallic' brush (so you don't ruin your good brush) and wipe it, like if you want to do a 'sloppy' (paint heavy) dry-brush.
3) Dip the brush on the Wash and mix. You will see some flakes floating. That is OK.
4) Test the consistency. FLAKES VANISH AS IT DRIES.
5) Paint with the Wash as normal.

If you do a watered down black wash (I mean, put more water on the wash) with gold flakes. The end result would be a light blacklining, with the iridescence stuff.

Good luck man! Amazing work!

Thanks guys! And great suggestions...

On the Red - I was considering painting his 'arm ruffs' in a similar red to the rose. I like the idea of the red stripe on the legs, but I probably won't tone anything like the rose down - My wife says I paint all my models too dark (so this guy has to be bright!). Maybe the red pots on the peacock feathers would work.

On the iridescent effect: I might give it a go, but I don't want to darken the feathers. Perhaps a mix of mithril silver with skull white to create an iridescent highlight? I do have another model it might work better on. I'll have a think!

Laney Very Happy

Very nice!
I also have the same problem that most of my models are painted too dark. So this time I'm trying a white undercoat, you've got any experience with that?

I've done a couple with white undercoat - Eldar and such. I maybe need to try more, but I do like the darker, gritty look.

Laney Very Happy

Thanks Guys,

He's waiting until the Albino and his minions are finished. Seems to be taking me forever. Albino done, base done, grots in the process of being done!

Then I've got to get back to my March goals!

Laney cheers

I also love the dark and gritty look, Joe's my first tryout with a white undercoat. Hope he turns out well. Smile

Ohhhhhh snap!
I've got that empire general model, wish i'd have put him to better use like you (rather than using him as a fairly useless empire general!).
Most impressive

Thanks!

Had no time for painting recently (and I'm supposed to be on holiday!). Maybe in a week on two I can show some more stuff.

Holy Mother of... :O

Wow dude that is one boss warband!!! I hope that you have more comeing up soon!

I don't mean to get on ya, but as "Mister Quality Control" as Mord called me once
I feel I must say a few words:

A Chief of Security may very well be nessery to you band's fluff and to do so would make all the sence in the world. A Bodyguard would also be a good choice

Also you may wish to have a Successer to the Rouge Trader's ship; Like a son or daughter or mabe a brother or cousin

Well thats all I can think of so have a good day/night there eh?
