Because unlike GWs unwillingness to make their steeds anatomically correct, Kremloch (I think?) is so bold as to make that leap.

I used this range of paint's adding 1/1 ratios stepping from color to color after the initial base. Most was airbrushed and then the ghost tint was added to the armor plating last after...

...applying a base color and layers to the bear fur using this range in the same ratio fashion I applied the armor, but with my lightest layer of a creamy brown I purposefully over sprayed sparsely along areas of the edges of armor plating so that they would appear more yellow in the crevasses, rather than just orange, in order to give a nice smooth transition to the orange.



If you would like to see it being painted you can search Twitch for the user name 'Hellathos' and look at my recent videos. It was painted wholly on stream

Current project of fully converted Thousand Sons in early stages of painting.



Poor pictures but once I'm done with the airbrushing I'll take them off the corks and take better ones.

Ok, been slogging through to get these guys finished amongst a myriad of different projects and now, with the exception of painting some script and ringing the bases with paint, they are finally finished. Sadly, as an over critical painter striving to become better, I know that I've rushed this project to complete it and it shows; in the lack of highlights, edging, and an apparent over spray issue when trying to do osl with ghost tints. I tried a many new personal theories with this project and it has been a great learning experiment, both in the painting and conversion aspects, so overall I'm satisfied with them in their current state. Hope you enjoy them! Next project will come to the log much quicker

I love it. Buuut, can I make a suggestion? The blue spray on the weapons is just too similar to the rest of the armour. It makes the gun become lost in the rest of the model. Also, I like to see eyes painted in. Other than that, I think it's a fine job.

It turns out that Chaos has their own band...

Thanks man, maybe I'll add a spot of white to it or something.

Love the orange on the bear...and the absolutely brilliant painting in general.

Only thing I could add would be to agree about the eyes comment. It almost looks like you forgot about them compared to the rest of the paintjob.

Just a few pieces of terrain from the Macragge set that was excavated from the bowels of the sarlacc that is my closet, two days ago. Didn't have the patience to go to detailed with them, but I think they'll do
