Default A Black Templars journey

Well I have started the journey of creating my Black Templars army. Only 4 models in, very early days. It will be great to see the army slowly grow in size.

My painting techniques are nothing special, I have always been a fan of "extreme highlighting" so I am going down that path. I have found that it`s the attention to the small details that give the models that little something extra. I will certainly be putting more time and attention into the likes of the HQ`s, dreadnought etc.

Those are some very nice looking BT models. Its nice to see that you did not just prime then and that was it as far as black. You added a great highlight and your white looks great over the black.

Keep up the great work!

They are very clean looking templar models, I like that look a lot!

The white is very clean looking too, which can be a pain in the backside over black if not done right. Well done there, they look superb.

Awesome job! Very clean. White and black can be two of the hardest colors to look right and you have done a fantastic job. +rep. Can't wait to see more.

Wery well painted templars man! Black and white are maybe the hardest colours to paint, but you have done it, kudos for that

To be honest, I am a fan of extreme highlighting myself, bar for black models as I like them to be a little "darker". That is only a personal preference of course! Just some food for thought.

Anyway, they look impressive, and I am looking forward to see your progress!

Thanks a lot for the comments! White is so time consuming, it must be painstaking for those who have mostly white models. Next I have a few chainswords to get to work on.

I now have 3 more ready to start painting. It`s so incredibly tedious removing all the mold lines off the plastic, but definately worth it, prep work is so important if you are going for that nice clean look!

I have done the basing for all three and stuck the legs on (nothing special as far as poses go for this lot), also have drilled out the ends of the bolt pistols, it`s the little touches!
