Thank you all for your input. I really appreciate it!
"Have you analysed why you do paint when you do?"
I have thought a little about that. I found that I paint because I enjoy it, actually. It is that simple.
The reason for me painting on rare occations, could maybe be because I am a slacker, and could rather just sit down with a video game than "working" with paint. I think it is something mental that I will have to work with, so I can define "painting" like I do "gaming", if that makes some sence
Anyway, I promised I would show my progress, so here is the model as he stands now (Sorry for the bad pictures, will work on that):
What have I done:
Work up the red, now only missing the orange hightlights
Defined the gold, still more layers to do
Washed all the metal
Based the wings (may have to do it differently)
It is still far from finished, and it may not look like I have gotten much further, that being because I am so slow, and that I work wery much on getting the red to the standard it is at now.
And now for my super secret recipe for red! (as it was asked for).
I'm gonna be so kind that I share it with you!
The Eavy metal way of painting red, described in the White Dwarf feautering Space Hulk
1: 1:1 Blood red and Dark flesh
2: 2:1:1: chaos black, blood red and dark flesh for blacklining (Yes you can rather use a wash if you want. I would recomend devlan mud if so)
3: 3:1 blood red and dark flesh
4: Pure blood red
This is what I have done on the figure above
5: Blazing orange
6: 2:1 Blazing orange and vomit brown
7: Wash it all with Baal red to tie the layers together
8: Stage 6 again, to bring out the highlight
Thats my "what to do" list on the red armour
Hope you like him so far. Any C&C welcome!
