Default Gorthol's Blood Angels

Hi guys!

Rockin'. I look forward to seeing your reds!

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

here's my 1st test model with red power armour...

Base of Mephiston red, followed by a wash of heavily watered down Rhinox hide, followed by another layer of Mephiston red, washed with Carroburg crimson then a light drybrush of Mephiston red, (highlights to come tommorow when my eyes aren't tired!)

What do we all think?

I'm curious to know how the can of Budweiser fits in with your painting

It's almost as important as the brush!

Something I'm just getting the hang of now is Lahmian Medium from GW. You can use it to thin paints down for better blending, or go further and create your own washes/glazes with it. Might give you less trouble than using water since water doesn't mix quite as well.

No arguments to be had from me on that notion! I usually prefer Whiskey when painting though.


How's the project going, @Gorthol ?

Well Jace It's coming along, steadily but not at a rapid pace i'll admit, used to bash out minis at a quick rate but I've been out of the game for a couple years so just taking my time. got 5 tactical marines with the armour finished ready for detailing, same with 2 death company marines and the death company dread, hopefully i'll get chance to do some more work on them tonight and I'll get some pictures up!
