I also started the first of my glow effects - all Maccarius Solar Orange thinned down. There are far more of these 'vent' style things to use it on the Paladin than the Cerastus I may have done too many [y'know like how some Eldar players paint ALL the gems ;) ] but it breaks up the metallics a bit.
I'm hoping the top vents work better than the ones on the Cerastus this time around. Some darker orange to add, and some pure white and then it's pretty much done.
I added verdigris to the chainsword, you can see how much better a dark patina works on the darker bronze. A light verdigris will look quite odd...
I also did the metallics on the missile launcher. Need to paint either chevrons or split 50:50 white and black, haven't decided which yet but it's not essential for my To Done at this stage.
I've also brought the thermal cannon and battle cannon up to scratch, which leaves it like this:

I'm still planning on stealing that orange glow effect for something. I don't quite know what yet, but consider it stolen ;-)ReplyDelete
It always feels a bit hit and miss, this time more hit I think :)Delete
Great progress, even if you don't see big bits done, those niggly little bits are now done. More progress than I've managed for a few weeks... :(ReplyDelete
I actually took Friday night off. I fell asleep before 9pm three times during three successive episodes of Red Dwarf I, that I was watching with my son so it was all really confusing. Finally went to bed at 10 and got up at 8:44! That's what happens you keep burning the candle at both ends. Anyway, Sunday got it all done.Delete
Lovely! I really dig that verdigris effect - excellent work, man!ReplyDelete
