    hey CMON...


    arms, claws, and flaming sword???
    yep, The Emperor is about to be armed!!!

    bad jokes aside, the gold on the arms is up to Stage 4, and almost ready to be glued on so that i can paint the shoulder pads...

    when i first saw this mini, i immediately thought, "That sword needs some flames."...
    luckily, over the few weeks that i had to put this model on the back burner, Games Workshop released a version of The Emperor's sword...
    the hand is even in the exact same scale...
    that was nice of them!!!








    thanks for looking...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    i haven't shown any pics of Winter...
    this is the scheme that i decided to go with...
    P3 Meredius Blue and P3 Beaten Purple are the colors for her outfit...
    P3 Greatcoat Grey is the base for the skin and hair...
    P3 Frostbite is used to highlight the hair, and the skin i built up by adding P3 Ryn Flesh to the Greatcoat Grey...
    the metals are P3 Cold Steel washed with an equal mix of P3 Coal Black and P3 Armor Wash, and highlighted with Vallejo Air Aluminium...



    now i just need to figure out how i want to highlight her clothes

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

    cheers, KruleBear...
    now i just have to try not to mess it up with the freehand i have planned


    here is a quick little step-by-step for the wings that go on the Kingdom Death Grand Mother mini...
    i wanted her to look like snowfall in the moonlight...
    i still have to work out how to do this kind of highlighting style on her clothes, but the wings seemed like a good place to start...

    Step 1 was to lay down a base coat that matched the colors i used on her clothes, so P3 Meredius Blue first, and then P3 Beaten Purple for the tips...



    Step 2 was a shade wash of Citadel Druchii Violet, and then a mix of P3 Murderous Magenta and P3 Menoth White Highlight (mixed 3-1) for highlights on the purple wingtips...



    Step 3 was pure dots of P3 Underbelly Blue all along the edges of each feather...



    Step 4 was another wash of Citadel Druchii Violet to tone everything down, blend it together, and give a darker look...



    simple, but effective, i hope...






    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like the style

    @Tee888: thanks, dude
    glad you like 'em...
    felt like risky move, that could have gone wrong, but ended up quite cool


    The Emperor's sword is about halfway done...
    the flames on the sword are very nicely sculpted...
    GW has gotten much better at sculpting flames, smoke, and ethereal effects over the last five years...
    i really like these "living" effects on their recent minis...
    saves me from having to sculpt them

    as you can see by the hand that is holding the sword, i have painted this blade without primer...
    i find that the acrylic paint sticks to plastic just fine without primer...
    since i paint from darkest to lightest, there are plenty of layers of paint for the lighter colors to show up nicely...
    once the piece is finished and varnished, the paint is well protected...
    basically, Sanguine Base replaces my black primer here, so that i can still do the bit of sculpting on the bare plastic hand that is needed to integrate the sword with the Emperor's wrist...

    i started the fire with a base coat of P3 Sanguine Base...
    the yellow/orange layer is a 1-3 mix of P3 Khador Red Highlight and P3 Heartfire...
    once i had a solid coat of the mid-tone, i defined the flames with P3 Skorne Red in the deepest recesses, and darkened the base of the blade, and the tips of the flames, with some more Sanguine Base...




    now it's time to bring in the bright colors, and add a load of contrast...

    thanks for looking...

    hey CMON...

    for those of you who don't follow me on my Facebook page, last month was a great month for industry friends doing some really cool little things to show that we are really all connected...
    to start, Des Hanley, former GW illustrator, and a concept designer for Crocodile Games and Avatars of War, did a run of Aliens themed Photoshop jobs on different owner, sculptor, writer, and artist friends in the miniatures industry...
    i was very happy to be included, and as one of the two that get the smart gun




    the flaming sword is coming to life...

    the photos are washing out the orange, and not picking up the white

    P3 Cygnus Yellow and P3 Morrow White mixed 1-3 makes up the brightest part of the flame...
    i think i need to push the white even further, maybe a 1-6 mix, or some pure white, and then a P3 Yellow Ink wash...
    this is an experiment, so i am just making it up as i got along




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

    The God-Emperor of Mankind

    this was an epic journey!!!
    i am fairly happy with the way that he turned out in the end...
    i tried to push the contrast a lot on this big guy, but it is still not quite a extreme as i would like...
    i guess i need to paint a Custodes now, and push the contrast even further

    the addition of the sword from the new GW Primarch model is the perfect finishing touch to this model...
    the Scibor base works quite nicely, as well...

    painted with P3 paints, with the exception of Vallejo Air Gold and Aluminium for the finishing touches on the metals...











    it has been quite a while since i got to paint a 54mm model...
    the larger surfaces are a bit of a curse, after painting so many 30mm minis...
    there is not as much leeway to trick the eye...
    it was a good exercise, though...
    i feel ready to conquer all of the Forge World Primarchs now

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

    It would be great to see you do all the FW Primarchs. I was looking at them myself, but I already have to many other things to currently paint.

    cheers, lads

    @Guawol: Horus is already in progress
    not sure who will be after that, but i am excited to paint them!!!


    Winter is here!!!

    this is the third Kingdom Death mini in the "Four Seasons" commission...
    just Summer left to do, and then the commission is complete...
    i enjoyed creating this color scheme, my take on a winter themed mini, and playing around with a snowfall theme on the wings and skirt...
    i hope that I captured a cold vibe with this color scheme...
    P3 Meredius Blue is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors to paint with
    P3 Beaten Purple and Meredius Blue go good together, and P3 Underbelly Blue made a nice highlight color for both...









    now it's on to summer!!!

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

    cheers
