I agree 100%. However, I'm incredibly uncomfortable with freehand haha, and I'll likely try to practice on the Centurion's cloaks before my Praetorians, as they're less likely to see the tabletop and I'd be less distraught if I messed them up. With the latest model (Justaerin #4, pics to follow) I've tried out some small scale free hand, that while simple, I think looks pretty good. It's likely along the lines of what I'd try on the cloak, though with the large amounts of folds I'm hesitant as of yet to try it. Maybe soon I'll get some balls

And without further ado, the latest:





Obviously, the blood on the base has dried and left gaps... however, before I fill it back in, I must say I'm kind of torn, as the current effect is rather... gruesome. What do you guys think, leave as is or fill in the puddle?

Hope you enjoyed!

I'd leave the blood as is. It looks like its flowing around the skeletons as opposed to them just sitting in a pool of blood. Nice effect whether you meant it or not.

Leave the blood as is, and have more confidence in your freehand skills.

That 'Eye of Horus' looks wicked, even if it's simple. Do it a few more times and you'll have it lookin' tits before you know it!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Yeah I think I'll leave them as they dry, maybe with some slight touch ups to make it look a little more realistic. And cheers on the free hand compliments, I gave it another go today with some of the detailing on what I worked on (sadly, one of the photos was out of focus, so that'll be for tomorrow's update).

As I said, I was going to get working on my third Contemptor of Talon 1, and I finally managed to sit down and crank out several hours of work on him today in preparation for this month's painting deathmatch. Here's the progress so far, battle damage complete (forgot the black lines on the crotch part) but still need to add weathering and shell casings to the base.



More to come tomorrow, hope you enjoy!

Work progresses as planned on the Contemptor! I've got the sarcophagus done, and ideally the weapons (at least one) tomorrow, and hopefully the other Kheres will arrive in the mail on Sunday... we'll see lol.

Here he is as of now, with some closeups of some details I'm happy with, namely freehand Eye of Horus on the knee and shin and some brass from Secret Weapons lying in the blood/mud.





Hope you enjoy!

Excellent stuff here! Quite the project! It almost makes me want to go get some stuff of my own done.
