A Strong Tone wash on the decal just to tone down the brightness. I'm really pleased with the result, the damage is comparable to the same on the Cerastus. There's a lot on the shins, I'll try to reduce the amount as it goes further up the Knight - no point covering up all the green and black!
I only need to do the knee and thigh plates and then glow effects on generators on the calf and hips and the lower torso is complete! Sometimes these things can progress super quick and this particular effort is offering up a glimpse of the home straight. Then it;s focusing on the upper torso, I'm a bit miffed as I've misplaced the semi-circle that holds the head in place. I can obviously just glue the head on but I wanted to be able to turn it. Alternatively I was looking at making a wire collar for it, where it wraps round the mount on the head and is pinned into the attachment point on the neck. Unfortunately my wire bending skills haven't convince me just yet...

I love the battle damage on the shins: wow :o)ReplyDelete
Some of the red looks a bit flat though, I;ve done abit that's highlighted on the pauldorns but it doesn't seem to make it any better. Similarly shading doesn't make much difference.Delete
I;ve also ntoiced my Anitas Turquoise is not liking being thinned down as much as it used to. Its starting to break up into a white residue in the most extreme pooling areas. It can be fixed with a reapplication over the top but I thinkit's about time I get some Nikhali Oxide to test instead...
The knight is coming along a treat.ReplyDelete
I've should have a spare head ring if you want it, I'm sure I can stretch to a stamp to see this guy in all his glory and I'm never going to use it on my Daemon Knight.
Seriously? Then again it's such a trivial little piece I can't work out if it's worth you sending it or me just gluing the head in place.Delete
