Well here is the latest addition to the 1k Sons commission I am doing, one of two defilers.
I was really at a loss when I started this beast. I pondered for a few days how best to achieve good quick results. First I tried airbrushing everything silver... but that produced mixed results, so I just took the tank brush to it and did silver washes, it took about three to get a solid coat of silver.
After that I tried a little experiment on the bottom of the torso and glazed it with tin, and WOW, I was amazed at how well it turned out! I was really afraid the glaze would react strangely with the metallic paint, but much to my surprise and wonder it worked beautifully. So needless to say the whole thing was glazed! All of it! Oh wait that is a lie, I did paint the searchlight lenses with one thin coat of yellow, but you can't see that here anyway lol.
For the purposes of the picture I blue tacced some of the model together so if you see a bit of blue tac in the pic ignore it, and also ingore that the banner pole is a bit askew, its blue tacced as well
Oh I should also mention that the torso is magnetized (by the owner) and I magnetized the missile pod, everything else that can move does.
It looks amazing! The colours work so amazingly well. Great, great, great.... great job. Your blue is also very nice.
that is quite beautiful Nice job.
While indeed it looks good and a nice job on nnm metal, it's way too clean.
That's truly amazing man. I love it. I just stared at it for about 2 minutes before I even thought about posting, actually it was more or less gazing at it.
*reps in hopes of somehow attaining a hint of that kind of skill*

That's a very cool Defiler. I think my favourite parts are the blue areas. The blue you are using seems to be very clear and magical looking, which works for the Thousand sons. The meatl areas are good too, doing metal well without having to make it look super-rusty is hard.
I think though that you could include more of the blue. The lower body seems too metal to me. If yoh were to add some more blue in there the model would gain more depth. Also in the close-up of the battle cannon I think you could shade it more. The teeth of that daemonic head need a little watered down black to separate them from the metal around them. I do think the work you have done is very cool though, do more!
Thanks for the great comments and critiquesActually those are regular metallics that have been glazed. As for the cleanliness that is due to having the exposure a bit too bright on my camera, but hey I still think it is a great shot.While indeed it looks good and a nice job on nnm metal, it's way too clean.I agree with you on both fronts. If I would have saw that before I finished the pice I would have done that.I think though that you could include more of the blue. The lower body seems too metal to me.
