I don't paint skin tones very often, but when i do i'll be looking through your plog for inspiration. Your eye for colour and muscle tone is fantastic

I love the scheme so far, but I would agree with the others that the blades and the eyes are the weakest parts at present. Light green is a good shout for the eyes but personally i'd go with an icy blue colour, like those fucking terrifying kids in the 'total eclipse of the heart' video.

So the model is done now - I tried the glowy eyes and the highlight on the claws. In the end I didn't keep the OSL (Sorry @SwedeMarine - The tip was excellent, but I couldn't get it to work to a satisfactory level. The face is simply too small for it to really kick in, so it looked more like a spilled mistake than anything else) and I ended up keeping a subtle version of the pinkish claws. I also cleaned up the whitish lines on the claws a bit, gave the shoulder a dark metal drybrush and fixed a few items on the back.

The end result is thus:


The changes to the previous are very subtle, I know. You probably have to know what to look for. However, the last tips I got from you guys made the model stand out in the way i found very satisfying. The blades stand out a bit more now, but they don't take the attention, which is still on the face - I was at a complete loss on the blades, so the tips and agreement among you all helped alot.
Thank you all of you - You're awesome!

Now to paint the second Herald - And see if I can reproduce the steps, so I have a template that I can remember for the 40 Daemonettes and 20 Seekers. Yikes!

Who can tell - natural reaction to Bonnie Tyler perhaps I shouldn't have searched for that video, i'm going to be listening to rock power ballads all night now :/

Nice work on the claws, they look a lot more 'finished' now and as you say don't draw attention from the focal points.

So it's been a bit of time since my last update. To start off, yes, I managed to make a second version of the herald where I could reproduce all the steps - So now I have two complete Heralds :D

Honestly, the reason for the lack of updates is because I haven't had that much time to paint recently due to real-life: My band has hit the studio to record our debut-album, my girlfriend is moving in this summer (so planning is in order) and I'm currently in and out of job interviews (yeah, I'm searching for one more close by compared to my current - I have 6 hours of daily travel time currently). Overall I can't complain, but it does hurt my painting time

At this time I'm working on the 40 Daemonettes (Only got them past priming this Monday, so they actually quality for all February competitions) so they can be used for the army challenge as well. I doubt I will enter the Deathmatch this month, but I haven't decided yet - These models don't really stand out enough for me to warrant a entry in a painting competition as such.

After the leather (black) has been done, I'll do the metals base and then I move on to the highlights and making them look like the Herald that is at the top of this page. Yeah, it's taking a while when doing 40 models at once

Oh and I painted the eyes black already. Because it looks awesome. So there.

Nice work Nord! I hope you'll be putting that album on something that isn't iTunes so those non-apple users amongst us can support... what sort of music do you play again?

With the deathmatch, is there any reason that once you've got this squad to a standard that you are satisfied with, you pluck one out and do some more detailing on it to make it an exceptional single model? I'm back in this month and want to be inspired by your (undoubtedly better than mine) painting skills. I always prefer a stiff competition.

Whilst keeping eyes and skin tones the same, have you considered varying the leather colours and patterns to increase the chaotic look of the squads?

Well the plan so far is iTunes, Spotify etc. - It all depends on our label as well, as we got a few offers out currently. We will decide once we have the record in hand and see what options we have. It's a genre that it's a grey area really; Metalrock is probably the best description: To one that listens to rock primarily, it will sound like metal. To one who listens to metal, it will sound like hard rock. So it all depends on who you ask

It's in the same area as the bands Breaking Benjamin, Egypt Central and those kind of bands, if you know them?

Well it's a principle thing really - I use the same amount of time on all of my models, regardless of it being a basic troop or a general. However, for me to submit something to the deathmatch, I want the model to have some features that stand out - Which basic troops hardly ever do. I might submit one, but at this point I'm not sure really.

Oh and thanks for the praise!

I actually considered both the leather and the hair to be different colors - But then I thought about the origins of the Daemonettes. They're all the spawn of the same god, and could probably be more described as clones if anything else. If they were cultists or Chaos Space Marines, it would be another matter, but I've always seen Daemons as a unified entity. Not by choice, but simply by hardwiring, as they all originate as a fragment of their deity. So I decided for now to keep them all the same - To display that very thought.
