    Brother Captain Taal

    Well, it's been a while since I posted anything just straight up in here...

    So, as he's something I'm relatively proud of, here is my brand new Space Marine Captain, for my Black Dragons...:














    Anyone have any thoughts, comments or C&C?
    Always much appreciated!

    Can we get close ups on the white pieces, looks like there supposed to be marble?

    You just had to show off didn't you? Bah, you pesky eyeball. He looks great dude, very dramatic posing and your painting constantly makes me jealous.

    i love it sweet pose the black is excelent!

    the only thing i dont like and its not like ARG THATS HORRID is the edge highlight on the base. mostly on the left side of it, the highlights seem a bit to extreme/thick. its mostly on the upper stone hes jumping off on the left side

    this is kinda nitpicking but its the only thing that stands out as a bit off.

    i need to paint more so i can produce such sexy models

    Really nice model! I love your choice of colors for both the model and the base.

    Black armor is very well done, the metallic areas are realistically dark and dirty... the glowing eyes are the final touch which makes the model come to life.

    May I ask for your recipe for the white areas? The eagle on the shield is great!

    Thank you for sharing... rep given!

    Is that lizardman base?

    I like the model (as always, you (rebel) s**m), but I'd change the black knobs (haha) on the base to a different colour personally. Something more *jewel-ly*, perhaps a pastel-ly green.


    That is of course assuming that it is a buried piece of totem. If not, ignore me.

    Cheers guys, much appreciated!

    The base is the back end of a tau Ion Cannon, painted to match my Bork'an sept tau army, so I painted it in a similar style to them, which is more stylised than the Black Dragons scheme.
    It is definitely less finessed than the Captain, though!


    The white was done thusly:
    Astronomicon Grey (the light foundation grey, I think it's Astronomicon)
    Codex Grey wash, in the recesses
    30/70 Black/Codex Grey wash in the deepest shadows
    Astronomicon Grey block-in
    ...then add white, until at pure white.

    The marble areas were then worked back into, with straight up Codex Grey, and various mixes of Codex and Black, all of which was cut about 30/70 paint/matte medium, which makes the paint very transparent.

    A (slightly iffy) close-up:

    You sir are a git. That marble effect looks absolutely awesome! *takes out -t based voodoo doll once more and inserts more pins* And he's to look like the Scions base? Aww, how sweet. At least you care.
