    Ymir - Painted Gunfex

    This is the third gunfex conversion I created and finally painted.

    I was going for a very comic book or animation look. Lots of color and contrast, but clean lines between things. This was my first monstrous creature I have painted in a long time and I am happy with how he came out.

    Next up will be Gamera, the barbed strangler and twin-linked devourer carnifex that has a number of conversions as well. He is already base coated and given the washes. Time to start painting. Estimated completion time: 2 weeks (if I get the time to paint).

    Gamera right now:

    Well you definatly have the comic book style down alright, the bright and clashing colours works surprisingly well. The black carapace I rather like, gives a shiny shell look - like a beetle in real life. The green I would say an extra layer of highlights would have been nice to see.

    To me it looks like an action figure. Which from the sound of it - that is the look you were going for. So - Great job!

    Not exactly my cup of tea but it is very clean and conveys the look you were trying to achieve very well.

    Cheers,

    Actually, I want the sort of glossy smooth look exactly for the idea of looking like a beetle. The finish is microflat, sprayed through a Badger airbrush. If you put it on thick it comes out quite glossy. I then tone it down some by doing a few dusting coats (giving it time to dry between). I would like to make the skin more of a semi-gloss, but that would take brushwork or something else (masking and more dustings I guess) and I'm not that set on the look. These are definitely meant for tabletop play, rather than display.

    Superb Carnifex I believe your shiny look complements the comic book look you have,
    I would suggest you stick with it.

    i *really* like how that turned out. Are you doing an entire army in this style? If so, how would you go about scaling this look down to a gaunt for example.

    I can't say that I care for it, but it looks very well done. I'm going to agree about the green; it could have used an extra highlight.

    How did you do the red edging, it looks too fuzzy to have been brushed on. Airbrush?
    You play your game, I'll play mine.

    Everything was done with a brush. I think that the picture makes the transition look fuzzier than it is between the two colors (red gore and blood red at the very edge).

    And some pictures of the other Kohr-Ah Tyranids.

    Awesome!

    This is my favorite paintjob ever I think, I would love to see the picture of your entire army when done. I love how different it is.
