Hi all, I worked very hard yesterday and I finished my wave serpent. If anyone wants to know how I painted it, just comment but I am pretty sure you guys can figure it out. C&C will be appreciated :dance:.

Here are the pics:












The base was made out of bits and chunks of slate from the 40K basing kit. Also a helmet. I will have 2 more to paint for my army so my plan is to have the blue be on the left in the next one, and the blue to be on both sides for the third one.

Thats some good work mate. I know from experience how hard it can be to get good bone coverage, so well done! Might I suggest a bleached bone/skull white highlight? It would really finish off the hull nicely.

One point, where is the turret? Why have you held that back from us??! :p

Finally, I really like the base. Its got some wonderful detail without looking too 'full'. That something I always struggle to achieve.

Thank you chirality, the base was pretty easy to make. It was just slate pieces, bits, fine ballast, static grass, and green flock. The painting was just a couple of shades of brown for the ballast, and a couple if shades of gray for the rocks.

That is well done, I like the colours you have chosen for it. I think they bring out the shape of the overall model well.

I think the base is good too but you could work on the heaps of bullets there. The metallic looks like it has gone into the details making the look like they are all one piece instead of lots of shells. You could apply some brown ink to them. It will fill in the gaps and make them look better.

One thing you can do to spruce it up a bit is paint all of the oval stones a contrasting color to make them pop out. Look for a tutorial on gemstones for inspiration. As it appears your army theme will be blue and bone, having a third color for those little details will help nicely.

Yeah, I like it. I think you'd have smoother coverage if you thinned your paint down a bit - especially with the blue - not that it's that bad though. I just started using 'Acrylic flow improver' rather than water or blending fluid and it makes a big difference -trust me.

Also, how about some nice coloured gem stones to add a bit more colour?
