Well that was certainly an interesting effect using metallics.

Consider experimenting by simply adding small amounts of silver or something to the colour. It may be a tad less overpowering. That's generally the method I use.

Also Gal, that was... awesome.

Yes - you did put the Metallic Medium on a tad thick - like any other paint (okay, it's not technically paint, but you know) it almost always needs to be thinned before application.

Not that it doesn't look good - just not what I had in mind when I suggested it.

Re: Spike's flamer. As a Sisters of Battle player I've painted a ton of flamers in my life and I always think they look better with some good schorch-marks on the nozzle.

Give it a wide drybrush of light brown, then a narrower drybrush of dark brown near the tip, then a final drybrush of black right at the tip.

When i do it for Luna's effect ill be sure to thin it out a bit lol. I agree on the thickness, i didn't think it was going to come out that way when i saw it on the brush.

As for the video, i love it Galahad.

Az do you have any pics of your flamers? I have a vague idea of what you suggested but ive not done burn marks before.

@AoD: re: pics of flamers with scorch marks. Yes, you've seen them. Crack open the SM codex to the picture gallery. The flamers (and meltas) have scorch marks on their barrels.

I don't have any Flamer pictures handy, but I used the same effect on my Canonness's Inferno Pistol. Black at the tip, fading to brown.



Note also the highlighting with Metalic Medium on both the gold and silver parts. Nice and thin so it's shiny, but not obvious.

ok seeing that i can see what i can do to mimic it for the flamer. As for the medium, if i do things with metal design like parts of her armor i will try the thinned out one. The obviousness is probably better for the cloak tho XD so i guess it sorta worked out in the end.

And I am back from my trip, well technically i did come back earlier in the week but I have been busy with cleaning and a bit of painting happily. I have to say my visit to a few GW stores were very good and i got a bunch of stuff I haven't been able to get elsewhere back here. Anyways back to why people are here!

I got to fixing up the flamer on spike and although its not as small a point as the sister's flamer in the pic.



I think it came out not to bad considering the brown is hard to see on the brass.

On to the finishing up of Celestia. I wanna get her done right and so i will be doing some of the cleaning up and washes after I get everything else down finished lol.




I am thinking of adding the metal mixture to the halo on the back as that is acting as her cutie mark. I couldn't bend the metal sadly to make it look more like the proper sun.

I think the cotton came out well on the base to make it look like she is floating above the air without having to mount it on an elevated stand. I need to add some wash to the armor and clean it up then i can at the very least say I am happy with it and begin work on the next part of the army. (I do need to get on those regular marines which will be background ponies and stuff XD) Any comments are welcome.
