Force Commander

Here's the commander I painted for the Bolter and Chainsword's contest. I knew what color scheme I wanted right away (similar to the Slaanesh Lord I'd done a while ago), but couldn't for the life of me come up with a chapter name/iconography. Eventually, I settled on the "Crimson Lily", based loosely on Weis and Hickman's Knights of Takhisis...

This entire project was an exercise in patience...trying to push my skill to "the next level." I think I succeeded, but I still have a long way to go. This was also my first major NMM project, simply because it would force me to concentrate on my blending. I am particularly proud of the flesh tone...which was a rather unconventional technique for me: I didn't use any of my regular flesh colors...or at least nothing with the word "flesh" in it.

Hell, i haven´t seen such beautiful SM for a while, it´s great, the colors are strong and pure, and you´ve defintaely surpassed all your past works (which wore wonderful as well);the NMM is very convincing and the skin, whatever color, looks just great, the subtile reddishness around the buttons on his forehead is a fantastic effect!

I don't often give out 10's either....Gobsmakin! NMM is fantastic, best chrome I've seen yet

Not often I give out a 10! BUT...excellent use of the Colour Triad everything is in balance and harmony. The Freehand on the rear of the cloak is a complete match in quality. Well done indeed. My Hammer is raised in salute, not threat.

Top job it be! If you're pushing on and saying you will get better I will give you a 9 in readiness for the big fat 10's you'll be rolling out soon lol. I like the back pack and sword particularly, not to mention the glaringly obvious freehand. Excellent

Very nice! Free-hand on the cloak is mind - blowing! NMM is great too, and the flesh tone. Perhaps some writing on the purity seals would improve it, though it did nothing to my vote.

Amazing stuff! This guy popped right out at me when I was browsing the B&C entries. Very nice, rich colours. What paints did you use for the reddish armour, and for the gold?
