Another set of intercessors but this time in dark green. I used the airbrush to create the effect again but this time did not use a medium colour. I still like how they turned out and the red adds a bigger contrast to them too. Here they are:
I recently painted some blue assault intercessor and mentioned I had done some others using the same airbrush highlight technique. I have enjoyed the results of the blue, and think the red has turned out well too. Here they are:
I definitely like this type of highlighting and shall be using it again very soon.
Recently, I was asked if I would paint prizes for a give away over on Simply Warhammer. I was only too happy to agree and last week, the prize arrived. The winner wanted some MK VI marines painted as Crimson Fists, and today I finished them.
They were fun, I love dark blue and red so these were a real pleasure to work on! Here they are:
This week, I have mostly been working on the next set of Raven Guard! I enjoy painting these gusts, and feel they turned out really well. I particularly like how the claws turned out and the crazy shadow Captain – who I definitely do not want to meet either on or off the battlefield!!
Here they are, in all their dark, shadowy glory!
Between working on the Coast Guard tank and the warband to go with it, I have had the absolute pleasure of working on these two!
The client had done a little work on them and wanted them finishing off with a nurgle flavour. I decided that meant the bases had to look like nurgle’s garden! I grabbed as many different plant type things as I could find, created some toxic ponds and ‘went to town.’ I am so pleased with how they have ended up, I do not think they are too over the top, but you can definitely see that they are on an abundant floral place!
The bonus is, I have a big knight to work on too! That base is going to be amazing! I might see what fun I can have with a leaf cutter and some resin too!
Raven Guard part V was a single miniature. It was the Forgeworld Vigilator, which was a really lovely mini to work on. The edges were sharp, there was no slips to work out in the sculpt and he was a lot of fun. Painted to match the rest of his brothers, I had a lot of fun working on him.
I am especially pleased with the grey digi pattern cloak.
I have started putting some time aside each week to work on my own miniatures. I want to clear some of my own backlog, and it is a good time to practice some skills too.
This week, I worked on some Iron warriors and some more freehand on the Warmaster Titan.
These guys just needed a little bit of touching up and dusting. They did not take long to finish and get put in the cabinet.
This guy’s weapon was broken beyond repair, so I had to look around for a new one. when the Horus Heresy box set drops, we plan on using them as Blood Angels, and I had a spare sword from the 40k ones I had a while back. This guy clearly grabbed a replacement weapon off a fallen Blood Angel!
The layer blending is not perfect. I think I need a darker mid tone so it doesn’t blend in with the light one as much.
I now have most of the troops done; just 6 regular guys, 12 terminators and then I can move on to the vehicles and dreadnoughts.
My other task was to do a bit more on the Warmaster, Captain Cogs. This machine is taking a long time but if I keep doing a little each week, then he’ll eventually get finished!
This is another commission I have recently worked on. As many know, I am not a huge fan of Sisters of Battle, but these ones weren’t too bad to work on. Perhaps because there were not too many of them.
I also worked on a Space Wolf Iron Priest, who I am really pleased with. I love putting snow on Space Wolf bases, as I feel this really adds to their look. I used contrast paint over silver on some parts to keep the shine, and even dug out some old yellow ink for some parts.
The apothecary also turned out well. I am still not a huge fan of painting white, as it can be tricky to get looking crisp. I used Ulthuan Grey to help achieve this in this case and I feel he turned out alright.
I have finally finished Primaris Dante! He took me ages to complete but I am so proud of how he turned out. Here are the finished pictures:
This week has mostly been spent painting Raven Guard. They are a part of the same army I worked on a couple of weeks ago, and I have used the same scheme, only this time it included a Land Raider Achilles. This made me happy because it’s a tank, and I love painting tanks.
Here they are in all their shining glory.
I am glad to have done these, I’m pleased with the edge highlights on all of them, I think they look sharp. This makes the battle scuffs on the tank look really good – at least I think so.
