I once again redid the 3rd eye on this model. Moved it down to a more central position over the other two eyes. Now it doesn't look like a helmet lamp on the top of his head :D

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

That is one scary looking bastard! :shock: Can't wait to see it all done!

The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

Well, painting has begun once again. Games Day here in Canada is on May 5th and I am going to try and get this model done in order to put it in the Golden Daemon. Don't think I have a prayer personally but it would be nice to see if I can make the first cut at least.

I did find a few things that I have to touch up with greenstuff like joint lines and such (most notably on the neck/wing area) which I am going to do tonight. However, I think I may actually change the skin tone of the dude. The armour I like but with the blue armour and blue skin, there is very little contrast going on with this model. I am open to suggestions guys, hit me.

I think you have a chance, WL. You may not be a "professional" but you are damned good, as are many members here.

And plus, that is a great model you have created.

UPDATE

The sword blade is now finished and is done in a similar manner to the Bloodletter I posted. The floating fireball has been removed and the hand is now done up with GS to look as if the hand itself were burning. The armour is mostly done at this point and the trimming/banding is done as well. I may possibly have to touch up the armour later on down the road but that is just a maybe at this point. I have also started to put paint on the pipes/hoses on the model.

Now the downside: I can't recreate the method I used on the skin. I have absolutely no idea how I did it at this point. Which unfortunately means that I am going to have to redo the skin on the entire model. This sounds worse than I really is however as I had decided that I wasn't all that happy with the skintone anyway. I am still going to keep it a blue shade but now it will be a fairly dark blue, allowing the silvery blue of the armour to stand out even more. This will also mean that the horns and claws will end up a different colour as well. After that comes the Battlesuit on the base and then the base itself. The loincloth still needs to be finished as well but that is a minor thing with just a small freehand symbol of Tzeentch to be painted on.

Once that is done, and a few other details on the Prince, I will begin work on the wings, which I seriously hope I have the chops to pull off. I am planning to paint the Eye of Terror and the surrounding space on his wings (both sides), almost as if by looking at his wings you are looking at a window into space. the EoT will be on one wing and possibly the upper curve of a planet on the other. Both of these have to be freehanded and done so as close as possible on both sides of the wings. If I can't pull it off, the wings will be done in a colour similar to the current skin colour shown in the pics with more of a flesh tone to them.

Oh and all this has to be finished by no later than May 4th :roll:

Here are pics of the work so far. Very interested in peoples reaction to the skin and the purple flames and gems.

That is becoming a truley sweet model Wraithlord.
The purple/pink flames are looking good imo and the skin is enough of a contrast to the armour to see the difference.

Im really looking forward to seeing the pictures of this when you have finished the monster. :D

:shock: The sword :shock: I think I just wet my pants.

That is trully breath taking man - I wish I could paint that good. How did you do that sword - it beats any Deamon Blade I have ever seen.

Cannot wait to see it done.

This guy just keeps getting better and better, the contast between the skin and the
armour is good IMHO. REally like how the sword turned out, has that whole magic/
daemonic weapon feel to it. The fireball also works very good, kinda reminds me
of that 'pink fire of Tzeentch' spell :D

Currently working on CSM (IW, Purge and Traitor Guard), Tyranids, Astronomican's Datasheet project....and oh yeah my thesis project
