Nearly finished this guy. Need to add a little damage, touch up the face a little and neaten here and there. However, I've never used snow before and very unhappy with the effect at the mo'. If anyone has any tips they would be greatly appreciated. General crit' is of value to so please leave helpful comments.
Have you done any power effects on the blades? The colour is out in the top one and the angle is wrong for the others so it's hard to tell.
I think the weakest point on the model is the fur - I'm not a great painter so I don't know how to fix it but that to me seems like the main 'flaw' (if you can call it that).
Still, cracking work
Its not bad, but I tend to use a wash/drybrush/wash/light drybrush method. And look at the pelts of real wolves (e.g. Timber wolves) - the tail fetishes tend to get lighter towards the tip...
It's a nicely painted mini the blends on the yellow on the Knee pad are in fact quite nice. I agree you need something on the blades, they seem a little dull, maybe some dried blood/gore or something, or maybe some true metallics something similar.
Also there is a small yellow splash on the right thumb you can see in the first photo, so you might want to catch that one.
Otherwise very nice.
I would rectify the blades as follows.
1) Wash them with a thinned mix of blue and black ink
2) Paint from the edges with boltgun metal - you can apply this over most of the blade, leaving a little bit of the current base in the middle.
3) Then highlight with chainmail, but not quite to the edge of the bolt gun bit
4) Wash again, this time with thinned down blue ink
5) Highlight with chainmail mixed with mitril silver
6) Wash again with the blue ink
7) Add mithril silver highlights to the raised edges, then on the blade edge, add a very fine highlight of mithril + white.
The washes will unify the colours and add a little steely blue to the effect, and the white+mithril highlight will really bring about the sharpness of the blades.
Hi - how did this work out?
Looking forward to seeing the results!
