Thread: My new painting journey after a 7 year break

  1. #21


    after 5 attempts in getting the gold right i think i have settled on the right blend! the gold piece on his shin and the bit dangling in the middle is finished, i might tweak a bit here and there but i am pretty happy with it. the rest of the gold bits are at different stages atm. The eagle in the middle needs a bit of shadow done and it should be finished soon while the top of the torso has just been base coated.

    quick update. I haven't had much time painting the last week or so due to my car blowing its diff

    started doing the robe on his back trying to put texture on the gold and not just painting it flat. pretty happy with it so far also did more of the white/chrome armour.

    Ahhh blown diff, you need to lay off the burnouts that sucks mate, and a crappy job changing them out too.

    Anyways, The robe is looking really good, and the imperial crest looks brilliant. This guy is really coming along great, and is going to be an epic mini when complete. Awesome work so far...

    Yeah its annoying i knew it was going to go eventually, i was hoping for another month out of it as i have another car just about ready to go on the road. Lucky its diff was relaced by the previous owner so i dont need to worry about it as much

    I'm back!! Finally had my op and got my car on the road so i can now get back to painting . I am putting valoris on the back burner atm as I airbrushed his cape red then i forgot about the loose paint on it and touched some of his gold and now some of its red . To the new model I decided on a sequitor hopefully have some updates soon!

    Your texture work is lovely, as is your nmm. What a great return!
    i have long breaks now and then too and wish I came back as strong as you.
    Very nice!

    Thanks it helps thats theres plenty of tutorials out there for nmm or i would be struggling. Im really trying to push my skills and hopefully in a yr or so i can try for a demon.

    Small update on the sequitor, i've finished the mace and done the small metal bits. Next up is the shield nd im still deciding on whether to do some freehand on her cloth or just leave it

    I tried to find what I like the most, but could not decide between the face, the cloth, the armor and the weathering...

    Decided on a new mini and to do a bit of conversion work. I have swapped out the bolters for flamers and attached the flamer bottles on his back. 1st time using green stuff pretty pleased with the results. I am going to paint him as a black templar. Also focus on making a more senic base. Anyway heres some pics hopefully at the weekend il have some painted pics of him
