This is model I've been working on, on the side, even though I don't have a DA army...yet. I just love their fluff and models, I got inspired to convert a chaplain from one of the Vet SGT models I had lying around. I magnatized his arms so any weapons can be swapped out. I've got a pair of LC that will be magnatized and painted up for him. I know on the banner I cheated and used a decal for the skull, but I couldn't draw/paint a skull freehand to save me. I'm hoping once it's matted you won't notice.
Sorry to say but it seems this piece might have been stressed.
Very blotchy painting and the fig needs more shading and highlighting.
The model is very cool but I think the painting can be improved a bit. First I would advice you to do is thin down the paints. This will actually make big difference. Have you painted the metal parts? Looks like you haven't.. might be the flash but they it seem to bright. I would start with a base of Boltgun Metal, maybe mix a little black into it and then add lighter metalcolors to it and highlight. Should give it a more realistic look.
The robe looks pretty good I think. Maybe try to keep your hand a little more steady because the highlighting looks a little messed up.
For the green and black parts on the armor I would highlight them a bit. Just add a little white into the color and apply it on the edges.
And yes.. the transfer on the banner is very shiny and you can see it's a transfer. Try to paint something easy at first.. the freehand on the robe and on the banner doesn't look that bad. Actually it looks nice.
Keep it up!
Thanks Fanakka. Everything is totally painted. My camera is very close to the model and the flash makes metalic looked very washed out. I think I'll apply an armor wash to the weapon staff, and the pistol though. They are painted boltgun, so it reflects a lot.
I like the idea of the highlights for the armor edges. I can do that easy enough. I'll admit, zoomed up close, my lines are not very smooth, but on the table, or even in your hand, it looks much better.
I have about 5 layers on the cloak, with really watered down paints. I'm still working on blending for those things for the dark recesses to the highlights.
He is not for a showcase army or anything (that's my Fallen, funny as that is) just for when ever I get to making a DA army, and for now a fun piece.
