I think that your Wraithlord looks good. I like the colours you have used on it and your painting is clean and crisp, neatness is very important to good painting I find. Those jewels you have done also work well with those colours and they are well done on thier own, colours or not. I don't know what that pin is for that is holding it up? Does it serve a purpose in the final result of is it just to hold it up and help you paint your Wraithlord?
It is vey good looking, I do have to get myself a Wrathlord just for the model one of these days.
very nice, I like it a lot, if I had to suggest something:
A) I think it could bear some iconography/runes on the front
the gems need more of a transition to help them look less "dull"
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Nice lookin' 'Lord mate! Love the stance, very gundam. 8Y
What configuration are you going to use the weapons, as (you would probably know) you can only have two weapons on a wraithlord, not including shuriken catapults or flamers.
Have you magnetised them?
The gems look nice and vibrant, but they seem to be just one or two colours. I may be wrong, but maybe a few more gradients in there would make it look a bit smoother.
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
I've just got to say that I love the face, flat and featurless; just as it should be. If you do decide to add any embellishments (I wouldn't) stick them on the guns or at least as far away from the face as possible.
As previously stated a few more layers could well make for deeper looking gems.
Up, up and away!
Thanks for the comments, I was thinking of either adding a gem to the head or an ulthwe symbol or just leave it and highlight/shade it more for contrast. The rod holds it floating above ground, can't really tell from the angle I took the photo. The weapons are glued on, I intend to use 2 bright lances on this one. There are two more for the army and they are both more combat oriented.
NOOOOOOO! Don't embellish the head! If you want somthing on the front shove it on the crotch plate.
Up, up and away!
A really super piece. I agree with the comment about leaving the head blank. It gives a mysterious feel to the figure. Putting some runes and symbols on the lower half of the body would look good and break up the flatter areas. But above all leave the head alone 8Y
I have been trying to paint a Wrathlord for the last 4 months. Lost count of the number of times I have got so far and ended up stripping the paint off 8X
So if you have any tips please.
i like the stance, its amazing!
the color is great too! Especially the contrast between the guns and the body.
The face is nice and mysterious, but i think the model is missing some runes or a really big ruby on the bottom plate. I suggest a lot of black ink, flowing, runes on the arms, they look like eldar tatoos. Or a really big ruby on the bottom plate. Also, the rubies need to be brighter, they look like they lost most of their shine (unless your wraithlord is really old?) some wraithguard would look great too.
Ok the head is goin to be left blank, from what most people have suggested. I guess I'll be putting an ulthwe une/icon on the crotch plate, seems like a good spot. Fixing up the gems at the moment, will post some pics once that's all done.
Kmarak - I did this one using layering and thinned down paint. This way it stops the actual brush strokes from showing.
