Default Power Weapons

Ok guys, I have had several people ask me how I do my power swords so I decided to put up a tutorial (besides, I can't let Fist out do me ). This is an incredibly easy and quick way to do a power weapon all things considered and doing the tutorial only took 30 mins including picture taking. All in all, once you get the mix of paints down you can knock out a weapon blade like this in 10 minutes. Here goes.

Start off by painting the blade Chaos Black, ensuring that the black is even and covers the entire blade



First step is to use pure Red Gore for the first layer. Paint on the Red Gore in a lightning shaped pattern that looks pleasing to you. It is not at all a must to be painted a certain way.



Do the same thing again within the Red Gore with pure Blood Red. From this point on keep in mind that you do not want to follow the pattern of the Red Gore to the tee. Instead, with this coat and all following coats, do a lightning pattern within the first layer making sure to leave edges of the first showing through.



Next step is to use a 50/50 blood red/fiery orange mix and repeat the same step from above


one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Now add a very small amount of the previous mix to some Bad Moon Yellow until you have a colour similar to that pictured here



Finally mix a very small amount of Skull White to the yellow mix you just made and paint in spots at the thickest parts of the lightning pattern and along the very edges like shown





And there you have it. Fast, simple and easy and very effective looking. Enjoy.

FYI folks, for those of you who have asked how I do the molten effects on models like the Bloodletter I posted and my lava Carnosaur, this is it.


Lol, had to get that in there eh Fist.
