PostSubject: Fortress of Redemption WIP   Wed Jan 06, 2010 8:56 pm

Well, I had a little free time over break after spending a week in Michigan with family for Christmas. As a present from my significant other I received the Fortress of Redemption. So with some free time on my hands I decided to break open my wonderful gift and start putting it together. After brainstorming a bit, I decided on keeping the Fortress in pieces so as to make it a little more portable.

So, being as excited as I was about putting it together I......... Laughing ...............forgot to take pictures while I was putting it together. The Fortress is about 98% complete, the only items that are not on there are the heavy bolters, spotlights and Dark Angel icons. Here it is!!

Missile Silo:







Walkway:





Turbo Laser:







Tower:











Complete:

So after putting it together, I started to think in depth about the colors I will use. I really love the idea of having a dark imposing fortress. I originally thought about painting it a black, but the difficulty of accent colors and shades on something so large would be........complex to say the least. What I am looking for a is a quick a dirty overall color.

What I have come up with is I feel will turn out effective. I will base paint the fortress black, and then I was looking to use a Krylon spray paint of a dark green to lightly spray the fortress. By spraying as light as possible I plan to allow the black undercoat to peak through the dark green. This way I can also use GW's Dark Angels Green to highlight raised portions and edges of the Fortress.

This is the color I plan to use from Krylon:


Now I had trouble trying to decide what kind of secondary color I want to use on the columns and the Angel on the tower. I have debated using the GW Dwarf Bronze with Shining gold as the highlights, as well as some boltgun metal here and there. I will also be painting the skulls at the base of the tower in the same style as the skulls on my Khorne champion (base paint bubonic brown, then bleached bone, flesh wash, then dry brush skull white). Let me know what you guys think! I have classes starting soon so it will be awhile before I start painting, and I want to plan the painting down to the tiniest detail. Some ideas would be nice!

Well... well... well! Look who decided to paint his Fortress green. It's like you had discussed what colors to used with me... HA! I think it will work bro! Very Happy As a matter or fact, you can also use Scorpion Green to drybrush corner highlights. I think it will look amazing!

Now I have the problem I do not know what color to paint the Fortress you gave me! HA! Keep us posted!
