Wow I really like the way you did up that night lord! Looks sharp! That will be one intimidating army!
Thanks, that's my hope and assessment as well :D I'm just hoping they won't turn out to dark in the long run, they are pretty well lit in the photos. And while they are supposed to be dark and brooding you still want something interesting to look at when you put them on the table.
Loving the Night Lords. They are definitely my favourite preHeresy legion. Shame I can't rep you for it.
Glad to have done them justice in your eyes then
I like their fluff and their aesthetics, should be a perfect match for me as I go along and get a bit more daring with conversions and what not. Debating on which units to use (and buy) from FW before I move around to much because of work...
Every new post is simply awesome, I wish i had your skills!!!!
Keep it up!
I've been at this for years now and I'm still learning so much each time I paint a miniature. Many of the techniques I've used on these guys are my first attempts, you just have to keep challenging yourself and try out new things then knowledge and experience adds up. I still have so many things to learn and even more to master.
Nice to see this thread still going strong Xeno. You skills have improved since I went away and you have some impressive looking models as always.
p.s purple and Black rocks ;)
Keep up the good work
Indeed, purple and black rocks but it was not for me at this time, hehe. Glad to hear that I've improved since last time, I always fear stagnation and it's nice to get a receipt on your hard work and attempts at new methods. This hobby truly is endless in possibilities which is both daunting and intriguing .
Looking Snazzy on the Night Lords Xeno!
Them snazzy lil' Night Lords be in tha house! Thanks mate!
It's a thread like this that possibly could get one sad modelbuilder out of a builders/gamers-block that has been going on since the 6th edition rules struck.
It's funny you mention that because I often look at others threads and have the same kind of feeling, although the internet has stolen a lot of time from me it has also been my main input and enabler to improve myself and my skills tremendously so I get what you're saying many times over
I think another update is in order... you should probably not sleep and get some more paint on your models... Priorities man! common!
Indeed it was...
Now back after a week in San Francisco (went there with my work for a research project) I've finally been able to sit down and get some painting done! I actually missed it sorely while I was gone (maybe even more than I had imagined)!
This marine is yet another new endeavour for me. It was my first attempt at using the Hairspray weathering techniques described all over the internet (see youtube for reference if needed). And just to see if it would work on smaller miniatures I decided to use it on an infantry miniatures. I must say I like the effect the technique offers a lot more than more conventional methods other alternatives when it comes to scratches - such as "sponging".
Admittedly I overdid it on his left shoulderpad but you live and you learn. It will be nice to try out on some bigger miniatures as I go along. I might actually switch over to this method entirely as I go along (since I'm laying all the base colours on my miniatures with the airbrush anyway):
And here's the entire army so far - I got some work ahead of me if this is ever going to get somewhere...
More infantry coming up soon (maybe even later today). After that - probably even more infantry. After that? Well, depends on what I throw cash at since I'm looking at a "free delivery" FW order right now... Suggestions?
Till next time
