    @Demihuman: yeah, still ruminating on how i will handle this bastard highlight...

    @dennis.: i'm not sure how i am going to handle this guy's ass yet...
    hahahahaha

    @Kahaan: sorry i made your BA's feel inadequate...
    this is a totally new style of red for me, and a complete experiment...
    i am thoroughly enjoying it, though...
    if you look in my gallery, you can see the evolution of my BA style red...
    this is my fourth one, but also check out The Butcher, which was really my fourth step in taking red to a high level...

    as i put the finishing touches onto the Sang. Priest, and get ready to jump back into painting Dante, i am finishing the builds on the first set of vehicles for Strike Force Cassius...
    these are almost ready for some spray-can action...
    i just need to file a few more mould lines, and fill a couple little gaps...
    the sponson weapons are not glued together yet, as i want to be sure i can get good coverage on all the fiddly bits, but are pushed together to give the client a little something more solid to look at than a pile of random bits...





    i hope everyone is having a good weekend...

    cheers

    super smooth transition on the wings, nah, it's really just the light, innit? superclean, he should be a recruitment officer

    Ooh, Now I see those little, nearly black, shadows on the wing. Would have though that was from the light if teh wing wasn't out of place. Interesting. Gonna have to try that out pretty soon.

    thanks, guys...
    i toned down the dark shadows on the wing armor with just a touch of red ink...
    it's not quite as harsh now...
    we'll see how it jives with the rest of the mini when i glue them on...

    carrying on, i got the wings nearly done...
    i just need to tweak the little shadows on the feathers a bit, and get the last layer of pure white down...

    next i will be doing the step-by-step for the skull and base...




    thanks for looking, and taking the time to comment...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    i got the skull for the base done...
    i went with the browner greys, so the color would not compete with the white on the Sanguinary Priest...

    step one was the same as the whites, with a basecoat of pure P3 Greatcoat Grey...



    step two was a coat of pure P3 Bastion Grey, leaving a bit of the basecoat showing where i wanted to define the recessed areas...



    step three was a layer of pure P3 Trollblood Highlight, covering a little less area than step two...



    the final step, number four, was a 1-3 mix of Trollblood Highlight and P3 Morrow White...



    and that's it, a well defined skull, that is not too bright, so should not draw the eye away from the helmet of the Priest...

    next up, the base, and then final pics!!!

    thanks for looking...
    i hope everyone had a good weekend...

    hey CMON...

    i got the Sang. Priest done, but still have to finish assembly...
    until then i have a couple of last step-by-steps to share...
    this one is for the rock under his foot...

    i started with a base of P3 Bloodstone...



    the first layer is a 2-1 mix of Bloodstone and P3 Menoth White Highlight...



    this was then given a wash using the old GW Ogryn Flesh wash...



    the next layer was a 1-1 mix of my highlight color...



    followed by a 1-2 mix of the same...



    then another wash layer to tone it down a bit, and blend things together...



    and finally, a bit of pure Menoth White Highlight to make the corners pop...



    hopefully, you guys think it looks good...

    i'll share the step-by-step for the actual base tomorrow, and then reveal the finished product this weekend...

    thanks for looking...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    here is the quick rundown of the base...
    same colors as the rock...
    now it just needs a little grass, once the mini is glued on...

    basecoat is P3 Bloodstone...



    then a layer of GW Ogryn Flesh...



    next, a drybrush layer of 2-1 Bloodstone and P3 Menoth White Highlight...



    then a drybrush of the same at 1-2...



    another layer of wash...



    then a drybrush of pure Menoth White Highlight...



    and finished by cleaned up the side with some P3 Thamar Black...



    easy peazy, lemon squeezy...

    the spot where the sand is missing is where the mini will be glued down, and the random hole in the sand is where a clump of tall grass will go...
    then a little static grass around the rock, plus a random spot clump and there, and he will be good to go...

    next update will be the finished mini!!!

    thanks for sticking with me...

    cheers

    thanks, guys...

    here it is, the moment you have all been waiting for...
    the finished Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest...

    this is just a set of quick photos i took with my desk lamp...
    i'll get some better ones as soon as i set up my studio light and tripod...
    i'll try and get the depth-of-field issue sorted out in the last photo for the next round of pics, too...

    i hope you have all enjoyed my first attempt at documenting the step-by-step process of my approach to painting, and found it helpful...






    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him...

    Very pretty. Of course he's pretty, he's a priming preening scion of Sanguinius! Great work!

    hey CMON...

    sorry for that week of silence, but i was at Death's Door since last Saturday night...
    i sat down to work last Saturday, when it suddenly felt like someone had stabbed a spear through my lower-left abdomen...
    turns out i was having a bout of Ulcerative Colitis, something which i had never heard of before, but am well aquainted with now...
    by Wednesday i was fighting for my life, as i had lost a huge amount of blood in 24 hours...
    for some reason, tonight, one week later, all the pain just decided to go away!!!
    so, yeah, happy to be alive right now, and ready to get back to work...

    @Zab & Demihuman: thanks, guys...
    glad you like the finished product...
    it was interesting to try a new painting style...
    it almost feels like i was painting NMM red armor...
    now i need try try actually painting something NMM...

    here's a little peek at what i was working on when i got hit with beat stick in the stomach...



    i hope everyone is having a good weekend...

    Woah... that is one seriously gorgeous model, mate. So clean, so crisp. Kudos!
    I hope the exploding stomach disorder went away for good, mate. I can image the agony of that... So watch out with the spicy Mexican food, mate...

    Ingested paint is probably the only thing keeping that nurgling in his stomach down.

    That's a nice blue by the way. Going for smurfs or or Crimson Fists?
