He's coming together really nicely Guawol
You could probably push the highlights a bit more on the edges of the armour, really like the overall colour scheme though.
He's looking pretty decent so far.
Really nice! I really like the softness of the sash and the power sword is cool too. And like the others said, I think some extra highlights on the power armor would really give it some punch. Really like it so far.
Thank you everyone! I finished (our at least believe I have) the Deathwing terminator, I want to try setting up a photo box before I take pictures of it and the rest of its squad, but that wont happen til tomorrow. I did want to show what the next project I am working on.
The reaper Red Dragon. I'm going to try my hand at display base making for this one, probably using some cork board to build a cliff like setting. This is going to be a gift for my gf and when I asked her what color dragon she wanted she told me Rainbow...So I think I know how I'm going to do it, and I know it will be tough, but if nothing else it will really give me practice with my color and wash shading.
I also got this pillar which I'm planning on cutting up to make it look like its broken and toppled down the cliff leaving bits at different levels.
This is the display base. I wanted to keep it as simple as possible since it is the first one I ever attempted. I will be adding sand and probably some stone/rocks to give variety of textures, and make everything blend together more.
And this is with the dragon in place. Just finished green stuffing the spaces between the connecting points. I think this project is shaping up to be something fun and interesting!
Here are my final photos for the Deathwing Squad ldr:
Then a couple photos of the squad:
Nice work dude! They look great and cohesive together.
Wow, the death squad looks awesome! I've never seen that color scheme before. Nice job.
Nice work the armours look smooth and I also like the "beige" colour. I find the white trims on the base a bit strange, but if it is cohesive with the rest of the army then it will make sense.
Thank you everyone! I started the squad close to 3 years ago (right around the time 6th edition first came out), but keep loosing steam while working on them so never got around to finishing them until now. These models were a stepping stone for a lot of different techniques, such as learning to use washes, highlighting, color layering, etc. The biege color really came about because of having a limited color palette as well as being a novice towards building up colors, tried to get as close to the actual bone armor look as I could. Still I'm really happy with how they came out and all I learned from them.
@Maenas: Yeah I'll probably paint the rim of the bases black, I dont actually play a Dark Angel Army (I'm ran an Ultramarine Army when I used to play). I got this squad from the Dark Vengeance set back in the day with the intention of selling them to help me buy more paints and other miniature materials I needed.
HEY!!! I just got those D&D myrmidons the other day!! Looks like we both have great taste in models!! lol.. which one is your favorite? (I like the water one the most...that trident looks awesome, but the stone one looks badass too! I'm gonna do some conversions on the wind one )
Loving that squad bud. Alot.
Weatherung here's my model lets say where talking bough that blue your using. After all shed/ highlighting is done.
1) apply shading in the recesses with bestial brown. It's in a thinned down application.alsomake streaks from how water droplets accumulate then gather weight then dio carrying that thinned dirt rust line .be selective here and there. Now
2) use a sponge (rip off a corner) and dio it into slightly watered down electric blue(something that tone) then Dab it onto your palette ,when you like the pattern of big and small fleks than dabb into the model in random places like anywhere chips ,wear and tear wod be left from use. Pla Edike edges of hands on dreadnought, wings of fighter bombers, knees and pads of marines. Etc
3) use that same color and apply (extremely thin) scratches and scrapes.rNdom,diff places diff directions and diff lengths.
4) apy with a dark brown all the things above from streaks to scrapes. Only diff is in the center of the sponges applied chips put a small bit of mithril silver in the center. This shows chips down to the metal.
You can be selective and make the Bestial brown streaks running off of some of these as well.
5) now I'm on to pigment powders I use a dark brown and a light and dark rust. At this point unless its alot of exposed metal you don't need to use this ( the light and dark rust)
However feels free to stipple or Dab on the the dark browns etc.
6)this is also the pint you can dab or leave small pools or puddle of a darker brown as scorched brown with a bit of black paint .thisaplication of the s or he's brown/ black and bestial brown turnout much better if they are dabbed on and or left in alls pools as staining. This is the model I use that I've had some great results with. So try these things out from everyone .. Maybe you use one point from thousand another from someone else . Maybe you keep some and discard others . Either way its a learning process and all these are for you are a starting point to building. It takes abit of pra rice to accomplish anything and ultimately you know what your looking for bud !!!
Thanks BAM! I'll have to give it a try on the next part of the crashed ship!
Here is a Dark Angel Librarian I have been working on all day. Going on a trip to a martial arts series of seminars this weekend and knew I wouldnt get any painting done, so trying to get as much as I can done today. I'm really trying to work on my shading and glazes/washes to get the colors to be smoother. Been looking at everyone's WIP and I am trying to emulate a lot of what I see. I was also trying to use the wash technique Bailey was talking about in BAM's WIP on the limited amount of exposed face.
Great work, certainly is looking smoother. Try pushing the highlights on the beige cloth a little brighter. The blue is looking a little more sky blue than the middle blue librarian armour usually is, this may have been your intention. But if not perhaps a few layers of blue glaze (Guilliman blue) over to bring it together a bit more.
Good work though!
