wow awesome shield looks sweet. blue is not the olor id think for DE but i like it, nice complement to the dark metals
That is a really impressive colour scheme. Nice, simple, and effective.

Glad you like him
No painting for the moment as I am struggling with a BSB conversion for the army and have never done anything like this before
I have never done anything like this before and might have bitten off more than I can chew.
I wanted a mounted BSB for my army - I wanted him on a Pegasus as I bought a Morathi before I found out I can't use named characters here. I wanted a sea dragon cloak and of course a banner - oh and a shield
Grind, saw, swear, glue, fill, swear, file, glue, melt, bend, swear etc etc etc
Well now I have ground enough metal and plastic away to blutak it all together to see if I like him - If I can actually get it all together I think it will be ok
PLEASE remember I'm new to this and it is a WIP but all comments welcome
I like the colour scheme, the dark metals is set off very well against the blue tone of the cloth/shield. Nice work there. The BSB looks pretty good as well, nice pose - can't wait to see him painted.
Ok - first the metals
Black undercoat (obviously) then straight on with chainmail (but sometimes I use boltgun) then on with some devlan mud - nice wet layer and let it dry naturally. For the mail thats it.
For the rest of the metal then a wash with badab black - not too heavy and detailing an extra bit where I want shadows and definition.
For the armour i then add a very thin wash of thrakka green - maybe 3 parts water and 1 part green (sounds wrong i know but try it)
Then a highlight with chainmail - I wanted this dark so didn't use mithril
NB - I have only been painting for a few months and am no expert - just been reading what I can and working out some techniques that work for me
