It's been a while since I posted a picture on here. So I thought I'd share my Archon with you.

Dodgy picture quality, so I'm sorry. And I'm no painting God, so I apologise for that too.

And no, it's no a mold line running down the centre of the helmet, I've chiseled an angle on the the helmet to make it look a little sharper, something you can't see in these photos cus of the light :(

He isn't finished yet, and needs touching up.

Sadly not. I painted it in bits anyway, then put it together once the 'basic' colours were done.

I'm still not sure on the blue.
It's done by painting a mottle silver:
-Black basecoat
-All armour painted Boltgun metal
-Patches of Chainmail over that
-Edges and occasional patches of Mithril silver
-5 coats of Asurman Blue wash.

The blue works well. Something for the moonlight to shine off during a midnight raid.
