Well i thought today i will do something different and take progress shots as i paint a veteran assault marine and work on the ooze base. Here is one picture of a in progress honor guard marine that will be the flag barer, still need work touch ups and the eyes painted but at least its getting completed then being left in a box. I will be adding the pictures as i progress today, longer process then i anticipated.
When i first was deciding on how to paint my blood angels i tried several methods and paints until i reached my final paint scheme, i wanted my blood angels to be a bit darker then the usual paint scheme with a few alterations of having bone pads instead of red.
The colors i use are from Vallejo and Reaper listed in order from left to right is; hull red, red ink, burnt cadmium red, carnage red, dark red, and blood red.
This image is pretty self explanatory just a white primed miniature.
First coat of hull red is applied.
Wash the entire model with red ink.
Paint burnt cadmium red leaving all the recesses alone.
Paint Carnage Red.
Paint dark red.
Final color blood red.
I decided to show the base as i progress also in between waiting for the paint to dry. The bases are simple and is just a matter of layering the water effects and various painting stages.
Self explanatory primed base.
Painted the base with scorched brown.
In this i already applied a thin layer of Vallejo still water. Once that dried i painted it with dark angels green.
Applied another thin layer of water effects and painted it a mix of dark angels green and snot green. Once that dried gave it a green wash. Applied another thin layer of water effects and painted it snot green.
The process continues adding layers of water effects.
I will add the rest of the process as i progress.
