Some solid greens you got on that guy - The shading and transparencies are really nice. Great job on him!

Only thing I noticed was that the robe is missing some contrast compared to the green armor. Perhaps a single highlight more might help a bit?

Good point, thanks!

Done:

Still doesn't show that well as I seem to have too much light here... Will fix when I get a proper lightbox.

thank you. Yeah it's a mix of blending and a bit of feathering to create zenithal highlighting.

Edit: Quick tutorial on feathering for those interested:

Wow thanks! That means a lot to me, I'm kind of introvert on the hobby towards others (outside of the internet) so reading this kind of praise really motivates me!

Thanks lads! Better pics will be up on a later date because the missus and me just bought a house! So it will be packing and moving time now. Still wondering how to transport this:


Any tips and/or tricks to get that across safely?

So we moved house, and now I have a complete painting desk instead of a cupboard!

Next up on the to-do list, my wall of martyrs set. I'm not too keen on the 100's of dead bodies all over it, so I might change them up a bit...

Also thinking about a colourscheme for pre-heresy Dark Angels... I might try out the old-school GW way of painting dark angels, which appear almost black but with hints of dark green. Like this:

And here is a first WIP look of some de-deadcadian'ified (yes that is a word now) pieces of the wall of martyrs:




The only real problem I face now is which finish to give the rocks, as I had to sell my gameboard (it wouldn't survive the journey) and though plans to make a new one are there, they won't be set in motion for quite some time...
