GW: Primaris Space Marine

13 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So I finally got this book and began prepping the miniature that came with it. I'm really impressed with the design of the new Primaris. Very well done.

 

To start I felt like the over all miniature needed some more weight to it. I mixed up some sculpty and green stuff and filled in his base and pressed the remaining into his back. It still fits together cause there is a lot of hollow space in him. The only reason I knew it was light was they had a few on display at the Games Workshop store so I got to pick one up.

Got this guy primed and base coated last night. Instead of me trying to remember the paints I used I just took a photo with them! HA! 

 

The next stage is a was in a deeper red with a focus on the recesses to fill in gaps. I was going to go full display piece on this but decided to make it a quicker paint job and just paint what I want until it's finished. I tend  to over obsess  about the details which prolongs the project.

 

My objective on this guy is to give him a more tactical red look.  His colors are possibly going to be grey and red. Like a more tactical blood angel. I'm still thinking it through.

Are these the new bigger,  reengineered  space marines I've heard about?

Yes they are. I didn't really like the look of the originals myself.  Below in the spoiler is a comparison I found online.

Sooooo like I said before I want to go with a tactical Blood angel look. That is were Grey comes in. Selecting the right panels over others, painting straight lines and keep the next phase in mind - shading...

 

I went with "silver" instead gold for the trim and wings. I was going to go with Gold As I really like it but it seems like it may distract.

 

What do you think? I'm thinking of painting the muzzle of the mask grey too. (?)

Got more work done on the Primaris this weekend. Washed him down and highlighting up. I got the red in a good place but I I'll probably work on it more. Just started on the greys.

 

Big Top Red mixed with German Grey (4:1) then diluted to get the dark spots. I used Oranges and Lighter reds to get highlights. As well as Leather white glazed with RACH Red to get brighter reds. I avoided using a Clear Red.

 

Need to hit the silvers at the end as they are all getting pretty washed out in the redding process.

Got some more work done over the weekend and Monday:

Silver shading on the shoulders

Gun  highlights

More work on the reds... 

Grey shading although I'm not happy with the transition so I'll be working on that too.

Next I need to finish the metallic shading, then jewel the rifle scope and work on the pouches on his back. Need to work on the parchment as well as the base and dirty up the first a bit. 

 

I'm also thinking of trying out scuffed up armor... AHHH!

Looks great.  Especially the red highlights.

 

Watching this thread more closely now that an actually local FLGS has opened up here where they mostly play 40K and MTG.

THANKS! Then you're going to like this new update! ::D:

 

  1. BASE: Used a Vallejo Brown on the base then washed it with Brown Wash
  2. BASE: Vallejo German Grey on the "rock" pieces then washed in Black Wash. After that I dry brushed all the "rocks" with Misty Grey
  3. BASE: Next, I used Terran Khaki to dry brush the base and then used it to stipple on the legs and base. In combination with the darker Greys and browns it turned out rather well. 
  4. FIGURE: Right leg, Left shoulder thruster: I tried something new by using white to armor-line then stipple random "dotting" for armour wear and tear. You can see it on the second photo. Please let me know if it looks alright.

 

I experimented with new filters on my camera, white balance filters. One is for florescence and one is for bulbs. I'll get this lighting and photography thing right eventually.

Next to be done is touch ups and adding glow tot he eyes. I'm thinking about adding a heat glow to the gun barrel as well. I saw a picture on FB yesterday of it and thought it looked amazing. Like the gun was just fired off repeatedly.

 

I need to working on the shading on the backpack as well. And finally, I'm thinking about keeping the base color that brown shade instead of my usual black.

Over all, I'm pretty pleased with how this is turning out. SURPRISINGLY, this is my first Sci-fi piece.

      So I did a thing! 
       
      Latching onto other post of similar title - most notable being @Willen's "Homemade Paint Shaker" - I wanted to create one myself. The objective was to be fast, easy and easy to manage while being multi-functional (it can still be used as a jigsaw).
       
      I caught the jigsaw on sale for $10 at Harbor Freight... The Aluminum piece is a sample for some of our material we use here at work. I've seen similar shaped piece at Home Depot. You would have to cut them down and drill the holes for it. I use it cause it was free. The great thing about this is the paint bottle rests against the bolt at the bottom, the Velcro holds it in place horizontally and the rubber band holds it in place vertically. Now I will warn you it is not silent... but well worth it. I did a test on a paint i had not used in over a year: 1-Right out of the bottle, 2-Hand shaken, 3-Jigsaw Shaken. And I can tell you what, that jigsaw shaken bottle was FAR better than I thought it ever was. I mean I really shake them well when i do it with my hands but not nearly as well as that Jigsaw.
       
      Hope this helps someone. Please feel free to ask question or anything. If you have any other homemade paint shaker links feel free to post them in here too so we keep them all connected.  
       
      Removed the hardware (shiny bits) from the jig saw. Using the an allen wrench. Bent the guide rail up and out of the way. It's useless anyway for the jigsaw. I would cut it off if I had the tool. Took Angled aluminum with pre-drilled holes and screw in in place over the existing blade clamp on the jigsaw. ON TOP not under where the blade clamps in. Adhesive Velcro: Cut a length and doubled it over leaving one end ope to stick to the aluminum piece.  Cut Velcro section (opposing side) and stuck to aluminum piece Placed bottle onto new apparatus & used rubber band to secure vertical movement. (rubber band doubles as wire management when not in use)
