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.

Thx was wondering about that, since with Wordbearers there is a megenta ink wash to give it a more crimson look and i thought drybrushing might make a good skinlike transition, but layering will prolly work better, thx much^^

Damnit, I'm too late. Anyway, the tabard looks flat and unconvincing, and one or two more realistic folds along the length would make it fit much better. It's the little details being correct that really elevate a model from good to excellent.

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.

Sounds very interesting, great work so far! The blue metal armour
is also very interesting, I was have been thinking of trying something
like that for a while. But I was very unsure if it would look good, looks
like I'm going to have to gve it a try :wink:

And great work on that ball of warpflame, very Tzeentchy!

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

Hey wraith heres an idea for the sword, try black/purple/blue shadowing on the blade with golden runes eh? just an idea though, its up to you, just having red... it doesnt seem to fit the model at all, just imo though :D

This is an ace conversion!

I got a deamon prince today and was planning on doin the same thing with it, minus the battlesuit, the flames and I was gonna make the left hand pointing..

I think what would have made this look even better, is to have the sword through the battlsuit..

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