Ok... I finally broke down and decided to move my projects over to the well... project forum...! Peer pressure is a bitch!
At any rate I have noticed that I have been kind of absent on the forum, been painting a little less than I would like (mainly because I have had to move into the house and out of the game room because of the heat), and I hope that motivation from posting will get me slave driving to complete stuff!!! I can only hope. As I work on more stuff my goal is to post it here...
Man I can babble when it is late...
Currently I am finishing up a Blood Angel Furioso Dread and a Blood Angel Captain. Not much to really say about them... they are a continuation of a long commission project I have been working on. Tried some new techniques to a good success so far - Started with the foundation paints and have used the new GW washes to some wonderful effects...
These are the second/third figures I have used the new GW washes and I have to say that I really like them...
I just thought about it and I must say that I have been painting really slow lately...
Just about finished up the two Blood Angel figures I am working on. Just need to do some touch ups and add a few highlights. Here are some close up shots of some decal work and minor freehand on both the furioso and captains cloak.
I always enjoy seeing your work, no matter how slow it arrives! (At least when you're slow your results are still impressive)
The white is very crisp, and the effect on the sword looks great as well.
Will keep an eye out for more - thanks for posting these.
the only thing i have to say about your captain is that the red seems a bit flat and has no depth. you need some shading in the armor cracks where it would be dark. have you considered using mechrite red? it really helps painting blood angels (i have about 4000 pts of them)
Very nice freehanding, I always enjoy seeing your work.
Hopefully tonight or tomorrow I will have them finished and take proper pictures with my light box. Though I am afraid I am an awful photographer.
@ xhivetyrantx: No I have not tried Mecharite red. I am following a color pattern that I have used for the rest of the Blood Angel army I have been painting. I think the light has washed some of the darker colors out of the recesses but the whole army has been washed with watered down brown ink (and in the case of these guys Devlan Mud which is a bit weaker). Before finishing I will most likely go over the areas that it didn't show as strongly.
Thank you for the comments and suggestions. Hopefully the final pictures will be a bit better.
How did you achieve the gold on the captains combi-weapon? I really like that, it's a lot darker than most metallics you see around, looks less ornamental, and more "I'm gonna shoot ye' mate"
I varnish the model several times while painting it. Just picked up a can of Krylon flat varnish and it has been working very well (very close to Testor's dullcote) so that may help give it that "less ornamental feel". The varnish really helps take off a lot of the reflection and shine of metallics.
It looks an effective technique, I especially would not have thought about giving it that slight green tinge, nice idea, and thanks for the insight! *rep*
