It's my brother's birthday in 3 weeks, and he is very much into vampires. We are currently celebrating the fact that his first published book, all about the vampire myth, is now up for pre-order on amazon.com - Shameless Plug - so for his birthday I decided to give him something a little different to the tried and tested "money-in-a-card", and after looking through the new vampire counts models decided that Konrad was the way to go.
So, this being the first ever vampire mini I have painted, and that I was a gift, I decided to put in a little extra effort, and try my hand at none-metallic metals. Now the images below are only after a couple of hours work, but the top edges of the swords are, for the most part, done. The armour is going to be gold, so I have begun base coating it in bestial brown, and will work up from there. The chain mail is also done, being a simple codex grey base, with fortress grey highlights, and skull white on top of that.
Considering my usual painting skills, or lack thereof, I am pretty pleased with the results so far. So, enough blathering from me, here are the pictures. As always, and advice would be most appreciated.
I must say the backs of the swords don't stand up to the standard of the fronts but the fronts are lookin' truly magnificent!
Up, up and away!
Nice work all the highlights seem to be in the right places and go right up to pure white, good stuff.
If I may be picky, you may want to mix a little water into your paint and instead of painting one layer of paint do two or three. It will take a little longer but it is well worth it.
CHK CHK BOOM!
Wow, looking really good.
I think the "gold" armor looks a little bronze though. A brighter over all shade would look a lot more gold-like.
Truely great work. I have yet to master NMM so i'm impressed with anyone who has.
Would you mind just giving a quick break down of the painting process?
I AM BOOMER!
