Hi there, all!
I realise its been a while since I posted anything actually painted on here, and thats mostly been down to lack of time to paint anything except warhammer doubles armies.
When it comes to 40k at the moment, I tend to pick things to paint that I think'll look good, rather than actal armies I'll play at a later date. As a result, I tend to paint things I wouldnt use in an army, suck as Sanguinary Guard - the last army in the world I'd use is a blood angels one, but the models are just sooooooo pretty....
Anyway, this is a test model, partly for the colour scheme, and partly to get my eye/hand back in - its been a while since I painted properly, and I've let myself go a little in regards to painting ability.
Any comments/thoughts would be happily received!
Cheers,
Stephen

Yeah, I know about the lining on the gun - noticed it just as I was taking the picture - but hey, gotta improve somewhere, and after a good couple years of not painting 40k models, I'm quite happy at being able to paint even that well still! :)

really nice paint job actually. The highlighting on the gun and fist is a bit thick to be honest bu it's way better than what I can do ha. Love the glow off the eyes. Is ther meant to be a glow/reflection off the green jems? I see something ther but not sure if it shoudl be

All round greta model. The wings look really nice, and I personally like the gold. My only critic would be the painting on the gun which you are already aware of and also the melta barrel is not drilled out, so it looks a little odd.

Have some +rep

Nice work. Some suggestions and comments.

Comments
-Great work on the armour, has a very gold but worn out use look. Shaded well too.
-The eyes are done very well.
-Red shoulder pad is bright vibrant and looks clean.
-Gems look pretty good, in most places. Good choice on the green.

Suggestions
-The wings could be a little cleaner with the white. They look a little drybrushed. Maybe another thing coat would help.
-Highlight on the gun is a little thick, also drill out the barrel on the gun.
-Your parchments seem a little pink and red, did you do those right after the red with the same brush. It looks like some colours got diluted with the red.
-Small comment on the base. I would pick a different colour with the base. I think a black would go better. The grey looks off for some reason.

Nice executed painting. What really comes to me are the eyes and the axe.
Good focal points. Actually a rather good Test Model if i may say so.
I have a couple waiting to be build, so i maybe steal some of this. +rep

Cheers for all the comments and criticisms, guys - I always like to find areas to improve, and this has given me somewhere to go with the rest of the squad (I've already drilled out the bolters on the rest of them... :p ).
I'll make an effort to get the squad as a whole finished and posted up when they're done - hopefully there'll be an improvement thats noticable!
Cheers,
Stephen
