    Painting a Barbed Hierodule

    Well, my lovely new Barbed Hierodule came in the mail this Saturday, and over the weekend I have begun to make him into a proper beastie. I will be using this thread as his WIP for painting him.

    But first of all, here was his assembly process:



    After a good wash I assembled the body,







    Then I got the arms on,







    The arm didn't want to stay on even with that set up to hold it up while drying, so I ended up pinning it this morning. He is quite solid now.

    In cleaning up the pieces I got myself a neat new scar to go with the one I got from my Trygon (it completes a semicircle on my left index finger):



    I will head to my FLGS tomorrow to pick up some primer and restock paints so painting him can begin.

    yes! we must see brush set to model immediately!
    that's a damn fine model you got there.

    Funny coincidence with the scars. It's a sign. I think it's telling you to get a Hierophant Bio-Titan and a Carnifex with Wrecker Bio-morphs to complete the circle of scars .

    I think the circle would be complete with a Harridan. Wrecker Carnifexes are not worthy of the circle scar of Garnantuan Creatures. Plus their rules are poorly done on FW's part.

    Nice looking model, one of the guys at my local game store has one but its painted poorly. I'm looking forward to seeing this get painted.

    I think you will do a good job on your Barbed Hierodule, go yay. To be slashed up while poking at a Barbed Hierodule, ahh the memories. I have worked on my own Barbed Hierodule recently and it is alot of fun to do. You should be aware however that getting to spots between and under it's legs can be hard because of the shape of the model. There was no space for my big hands. To make sure you don't miss any spots paint with lots of light and peer carefully at it especially after you give it a basecoat.

    Id suggest giving it two light coats of spray paint. It will definately cover any rogue mold release.

    Looking forward to the painting. Any ideas or previews of colour scheme?

    Good god I hope I can give him a good paint job. I primed him tonight, so I will probably start painting him tommorow.

    As for my scheme, my Trygon is here: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ml#post1322786

    He is my best so far. Tonight I tried some new stuff (highlighting the skin and better doing the carapace), the highlights didn't really work out at all, but the carapace looks great. I am going to use that, but keep the skin like I always do.

    Small update, he has been primed, and the skin has been basecoated, and his soft bits have been painted and highlighted. He is ready for his wash, but I am letting all the aforementioned dry before that.
