Nice work!

 

I just got 2 sprues of Russ' finest to try and knock the desire to paint a full Space Wolf army out of me....

 

we will see how soon I get to them.....

This is an incredible paint job... the facial shading is masterful and all the details are separated and accented magnificently

 

But that blue is really jarring and incongruous - almost as if it were plastic (high tech polycarbonite armor) as opposed to metal - everything else has a consistant realism and shading but the blue seems almost 2D by comparison... - a less bold color might help, but i think it really needs more depth and shading

 

I haven't tried this yet, but i really enjoyed this blue armor and Marsya was kind enough to share the secret on page 2 of the thread

Best of luck!

As much as I've come to enjoy painting Space Marines, I think trying to paint an army of them would drive me insane.

Yeah I find I struggle with "painted" armour, just can't get my head around how to shade and highlight it (and it doesn't help that this one has photographed so glossily).

 

The armour in that link looks pretty good and sounds easy enough to do, I'll have to give it a try on the next guy in the pile.

I really like the shade of that blue, but agree that it needs more shading and highlighting.  Everything else is outstanding.

Holy smokes! That's the bluest blue in the whole of blue city! Gotta get me a bottle of that ASAP. *envy* Not sure how well it works on this figure though.

 

His face is sublime. It's shocking to see so much life in a face on a figure this scale (assuming it's the same scale as a normal marine). Other than his face, my favorite part is the leather on his book and book strap. Beeeeeautiful job on that leather! 

But that face... ::o: :wub:

Thanks, it's Vallejo Model Colour Royal Blue.

 

Yeah, Games Workshop have gotten pretty dang good at face sculpting in the last couple of years, so much fun to paint.

      A Troll for Blood Bowl, as chosen by my Patrons.
      Pretty fun to paint, but 19 pieces for a single model is...ridiculous?
      Also tough to photo - all the deep, crossing-over parts cast big shadows, and in order to light them you get major hotspots elsewhere.
      I feel he turned out pretty nice.

      I grabbed some Chaos Cultists from the Dark Vengeance box from a buddy of mine. Don't know what I'm going to use them for. Maybe Shadow War eventually.
       
      Anyway, didn't want to spend a lot of time on them so I just spray primed with the AP color primers then applied some basic base costs. I finished them off with the AP strong tone quickshade followed by the anti shine. I think they turned out pretty well.
       
      thanks for looking. Comments and critiques are always appreciated.

      I finally got a chance to set up some terrain on a new battle mat.

      Just a little while ago, I got to paint up a full force of Stormcast Eternals riding various drakes.
      I was a little surprised by just how many Stardrakes fit into the force, and there were quite a number of Dracothian Guard as well (I only got a couple of them photographed).
      Here they are in their glory.

      This is the start of my new adventuring party. So far, it consists of a human wizard, human or halfling monk, elf bard, half-elf ranger, and human druid. I'd like to do one figure for each of the core classes.
