Default Death Company Painting Log

Hey there fellow heretics, I was starting my death company up last night and figured I'd go ahead and log my progress for you as well as myself. I've been working on my BA chapter completion for awhile and already have 2nd, 3rd, and 4th companies completed, but figured I'd start small and just post the progress on my Death Company.

Ive already primed and cleaned the models up and have just stared painting the first model of my 2nd Company Death Company attachment.

Here's some pics to get things started:







They still need to be "tightened" up a little, but since this is a progress thread, I figure everyone already knows that C&C is always welcomed and appreciated

I really like the way you do those blood drop jewels. How do you manage that, is it just red to orange and then a dash of white?

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

Yea for the most part, I do a 50/50 of blood red and sunburst yellow, add a drop or two of water to thin it out and just layer it on. Then I'll take thinned out skull white and do a quick highlight on it.

* I found a color I've never seen before called wild rider red, it's a pretty good mid tone when doing red.

Looking good so far! Something that bugged me at first was that the red and orange on the shoulder-pad seemed to not blend well into each other.

Yea it's killing me too, lol. At a distance it looks smooth, but the closer you get to it, the more apparent a lack of blending becomes. I'm going to smooth out some blends and fix some highlights as soon as I'm off work. I wish I could just be obnoxiously rich and sit at home and paint all day!! For now though, it's 5-6 days of work a week

Did it say 'human-lifetime' near future or 'cosmic-scale' near future? Because if it's cosmic scale you're fucked lol

Lol, it didn't specify, I'm sure since they're always "soulful" meanings, it meant cosmic....bastards. Or maybe they meant wealthy in the sense of happiness, friends, blah fuckin blah, lol

Thanks BoK, I'm pretty excited to get home and finish these dudes up!
