This is the latest conversion I am working on. He is going to be painted in my Thousand Sons scheme. These pics show the initial pinning stage (first pic) and the final modelling stage (2nd pic) with the exception of a giant eye growing out of the right shoulder pad. Tell me if any of you notice something different about the floating ball of flame that is cupped by the left hand :)

Update

Here are a couple of pics showing the progress of the paint. The first pic is after 3 successive coats to get the basic blue colour I like to start from in order to highlight up to the final layer. The second pic is the finished blue armour and the banding picked out in Tin Bitz in preparation for further paint.




The face was going to be the same colour as the armour but I have decided to go in a different direction with the skin areas. More pics to come as I progress.

Update


The skin is now 3 coats in with substantially more to go. The eventual finished product will be almost a full flesh or pallid flesh tone with a hint of blue to show the blending of the skin and armour. Horns and claws will go slightly different with Bleached Bone being added in successive layers. At least, that is the hope :D



One thing I wouldn't mind getting a little feedback on is the scales on the wings (near the upper claw and such). What colours would you guys go with that? A different shade of blue to blend in a bit or a total contrast of somekind? And if so, what kind of contrast?

I am also thinking of doing further updates by editing the first post so you can see the progression better. Would you guys like that better if I did it that way for posting pics?

Few more pics. Skin is finished with only the scales and small details to be done now and the bone coloured areas are mostly done as well.

If you want the skin to blend into the armour you will have to layer it instead of drybrush as you will need a more gradual transition than drybrushing will allow you. However if you do it right there is no doubt it will look awesome.

I decided to go back and redo some greenstuff on him. He now has a third eye and the right shoulderpad has been redone similar to Abaddons sword with a ton of small faces instead of the huge eye it had. I like the third eye but I am not convinced the faces are right for the model. I will get a pic when I can and get your opinions on it.

Update:

As I said, I didn't like the way the shoulderpad turned out so I once again ripped off the gs and redid it. Now the shoulder has 5 or 6 eyes all in different directions and angles coming out of it. Going to go with that as I like the looks of it and it fits the Tzeentch theme imho.

I have gone back and once again redone the shouldpad. Now the model has 5 or 6 large eyes on the shoulder which fits the Tzeentch theme more I think.

Here are the latest pics of this guy. Not a whole lot more has been done as I was stuck with the feeling it needed something more. The 3rd eye and the eyes on the shoulderpad are what I finally decided to go with and now I am happy with the model and have started to finally finish painting it.

Pics of the greenstuff eyes on the head and shoulderpad



A bit of the base to show the progress on the downed battlesuit.

I changed my mind about the colour of the sword runes and the flame. Going with the green ended up that there was not enough contrast to the model so I will be using flame colours like red and yellow

Thought about it but it would have taken even more work and I had already had enough of the dremel by that time :D

I once again redid the 3rd eye on this model. Moved it down to a more central position over the other two eyes. Now it doesn't look like a helmet lamp on the top of his head :D

Well, painting has begun once again. Games Day here in Canada is on May 5th and I am going to try and get this model done in order to put it in the Golden Daemon. Don't think I have a prayer personally but it would be nice to see if I can make the first cut at least.

I did find a few things that I have to touch up with greenstuff like joint lines and such (most notably on the neck/wing area) which I am going to do tonight. However, I think I may actually change the skin tone of the dude. The armour I like but with the blue armour and blue skin, there is very little contrast going on with this model. I am open to suggestions guys, hit me.

UPDATE

The sword blade is now finished and is done in a similar manner to the Bloodletter I posted. The floating fireball has been removed and the hand is now done up with GS to look as if the hand itself were burning. The armour is mostly done at this point and the trimming/banding is done as well. I may possibly have to touch up the armour later on down the road but that is just a maybe at this point. I have also started to put paint on the pipes/hoses on the model.

Now the downside: I can't recreate the method I used on the skin. I have absolutely no idea how I did it at this point. Which unfortunately means that I am going to have to redo the skin on the entire model. This sounds worse than I really is however as I had decided that I wasn't all that happy with the skintone anyway. I am still going to keep it a blue shade but now it will be a fairly dark blue, allowing the silvery blue of the armour to stand out even more. This will also mean that the horns and claws will end up a different colour as well. After that comes the Battlesuit on the base and then the base itself. The loincloth still needs to be finished as well but that is a minor thing with just a small freehand symbol of Tzeentch to be painted on.

Once that is done, and a few other details on the Prince, I will begin work on the wings, which I seriously hope I have the chops to pull off. I am planning to paint the Eye of Terror and the surrounding space on his wings (both sides), almost as if by looking at his wings you are looking at a window into space. the EoT will be on one wing and possibly the upper curve of a planet on the other. Both of these have to be freehanded and done so as close as possible on both sides of the wings. If I can't pull it off, the wings will be done in a colour similar to the current skin colour shown in the pics with more of a flesh tone to them.

Oh and all this has to be finished by no later than May 4th :roll:

Here are pics of the work so far. Very interested in peoples reaction to the skin and the purple flames and gems.

Some new pics to get opinions on. :)







Jacobite, the sword is actually very easy to do.

Black/Red Gore 50/50
Blood Red
Blazing Orange
Sunburst Yellow
Skull White

Each colour is added to the previous colours all the way through to keep hints of previous layers in the colouring. The only exception is the White, which has just the smallest mix of the other colours added in. It takes a little bit of playing around to find the mix you like but is very easy to do

My only regret with this model is that I did not have the time to try and paint the eye of terror on the wings like I originally planned. Gamesday came up way too fast for it to be attempted. Still more than happy with the end result but I would have liked to do that.
