Hello again all!

After I finished painting the metal with Warplock Bronze, I began dry brushing over the bronze with Army Painter's Plate Mail Metal. I like the look of this as it's dark enough, but not too dark. I also don't like the super shiny metallic paint you see out there.

Attached is the finished result of the dry brushing!

Enjoy!

I guess it's too late now but a simple red I used for Word Bearers back in 4th was scab red and a magenta wash. Whatever the equivalent is now... Carroburg crimson would make a good stand in for magenta and really any dark red would do the trick. It sounds overly simple to paint armour that way but I've painted power armour in far more complicated (therefore time consuming) ways since and it hasn't looked a whole lot better than a simple basecoat and wash.

It's never too late! As I said before, I can always use advice for the future!

Either way, is my Maulerfiend looking completely wack, or is it coming out okay?

at this stage its hard to tell.
i have had several models that looked awful until a bit of detail went on then they magicaly transform to passable.

only note is you have some splash over on the cables on the ass some cables which are red have small amounts of silver on it and vice versa.

what you got planned next for it?

I am starting line details with the silver on the lines. Basically all over the chaos symbol as well as the outlining lines of the armor plates. I'm about a quarter of the way through. It's got a lot of lines so this is, by far, the longest part as I am attempting to be as neat and precise as possible.

I will have that finished by tonight and post pictures. Honestly, to me, it's starting to look very good with the line details.

A darker line between the bright red and silver trim will look good. When I did my Word Bearers I painted the entire model dark red, then magenta wash everywhere and then painted everything black that wasn't the red armour plating. From there when I painted the silver trims it meant there was a thin line of black in between the trim and the red armour. Painting the red armour was fast but then going over everything else with black was probably the most time consuming stage

I'd continue with what you're doing now and see how it comes out. It's good to test things out first using spare parts that you won't need- I've painted plenty of different schemes in my time but there's no substitute for testing how colours go together on an actual model. It's best to paint something new on infantry so if your first model doesn't look as good as you were hoping for it may only be one model from a unit of ten

And it's absolutely true that the early stages don't tell you too much until the model is finished!

Not to sound condescending, but I can't believe I have never thought of that!!

I have so many bits laying around, that would work out wonderfully!

Thanks for the great idea!

Alrighty guys, next up is the line detail!

I used Ironbreaker to do the lines in the armor which seems to have been the standard in Word Bearer's armor.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Last, but not least, some finishing touch ups. (Places I painted that shouldn't have been painted one color or another. As well as fixing some noted errors.) As well as some finishing details!

Now, I want to mention that I am absolute garbage at coloring and decorating the bases of the models. I have learned some new techniques that I would love to use, however I haven't yet purchased the paints/scenery required for this... so the bases will be finished at a later date.

Enjoy!

Next up! This should be a lot of fun!!! I will be using lots of your guy's recommendations for this guy and see how he turns out! (If it comes out a way I do not like, I don't mind stripping it and re doing it.)
