Apologies for the triple post. Washes are done on the blood slaughterer. need to tidy up a few areas, byut generally happy.

Definition on the silver is better in person. Camera seems to have washed some of it out.

I've edge highlighted the bronze with a bit of chainmail, but this was before washing. Do people think it needs another highlight or would this be too bright against the bronze?

Cabling - currently all the same colour. i'm fairly happy with this, but am debating picking out a few cables in another colour. Would this look right? Any suggestions on colours, or leave as is?

bones will get a highlight in beached bone and maybe some other washes, as they look a bit dull atm.

The 'facemask' was washed black, unlike the rest of the brass which had devlan mud. Happy with it, but thinking a further devlan mud wash and highlights might look better

Finally eyes/lenses 8whatver you wanna call them). Not sure about colour. Possibly blood red, but not sure. Possibly blue (hopefully do a glowing effect if I can make it work. Any thoughts?

Thanks for looking. Suggestions welcome.
Cheers

Blood Slaughterer complete!
 
School has started again, but I've managed to find the time to finish off the blood slaughterer. Really pleased with how this has come out. May tweak an bit, but probably not. The metals look very bright in the pictures, but look a lot better in real life.

Needs a coat of purity seal and I'm working on the base.

Here's the pics.

Next on the painting table are the chosen. Finished basing and battle damage on shields today. Hopefully undercoat in the next couple of days.

Thanks for looking

Really nice work on the armor panels, the red looks nice and deep and the bronze gold stands out well against it. In regards to your previous question about the cables, I'd say go for painting a couple of them in different colors even if it's just black (or hazard lines could also look good), it's a pain in the ass but it can sometimes really make a difference.

How is work going on the DP?

general 09-23-13 01:35 PM

Firstly, thanks for the feedback Jacobite, much appreciated. I'm glad you like the red, as it took a few layers!. I like the ide of a few with hazard stripes and in black.

The DP is ready for undercoat, but I'm still trying to decide on a paint scheme. Inspired by wraiths TSons, but don't have an airbrush (for smooth silver). Looking into army painter colours (they do pots and sprays that match), as for vehicles the silver will need to be VERY flat, and I want them all to match up ok.

Chosen undercoated today, hopefully on the painting table soonish.

The bronze and gold look truly great!

The problem is that, in my opinion, the great job on those two make the iron part stand out as very unfinished. The red and gold have a worn and weathered look, where the iron hardly has anything.

My suggestion would be some heavy shading and some brisk drybrushing here and there with a light metal. Make it shine a bit, but make it look like the metal is covered in oils, dirt and other nasties.

general 09-23-13 02:21 PM

Nordicus thanks for the feedback.

I agree with what you say about the 'unfinished' look. I may go over these with some washes and stuff, but they look a lot more 'finished' in the flesh. he may get some more washes and stuff when I get the paint out for the chosen, to make it 'pop' a bit more.

Do let us see the result - So far it's a good piece of work, so keep it up! :)

Chosen update.

Basic red is done. Metal basecoats are also done. Will need washes and highlights to make it look right. Red needs tidying up. Then black on belt buckets, eyes, and a few other areas. Also need another layer of gold in some areas before washes/shading.

The whole squad:

2 with 'lightning claws':

First 3 general close combat weapons (need to tidy up right hand one).

Second 2 general close combat weapons

http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/l...2/DSCF0554.jpg

Quite pleased with the weapons, although I may tweak the reds a bit, as I don't think they look as good as the blue.
2 don't have guns, as they are interchangeable (for bolt pistols, plasma pistol or melta).

Test ran my 'thousand sons' planed list the other day, and worked pretty well. Hopefully get going on this soonish, so progress on the DP hopefully.

Thanks for looking.

Glad you like them buddy. If I make more I'll try and do a proper one. Depends if I get cheap wings somewhere.

Thanks for looking.
