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. (?)

WATCH OUT Izzie is spying on you!

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.

      For a painting competition entry I had to find a 20 year old miniature to work with. Digging through my old boxes of minis (mostly Games Workshop) I found a "Kharn the Betrayer" chaos space marine from 96 (I think was the date on his tab). Decided I wanted to give him a fun base, something more than just the general skull pile he's usually on. So, started scratchbuilding a symbol of Khorne for him to stand on, here's two pics of the understructure. (Bottom of the actual base is the black, white cap is just for handling.)


       
      This (although small) is the most involved basing project Ive done to date, and I'm already learning lots on how to do things better, and a lot of what not to do. Anyway, will be updating as I progress further on him. 
       
      - Added some more detailing to the base, and started laying ground for skulls. 
       
      - More skulls and playing around with details on the symbol, have added a removed a few things that didnt turn out how I liked. 
       
      - And some more skulls, also added paper cut of potential plating on the symbol on top right portion. Think I like it and will add to the rest of them for next update (which wont be til next week, as out of town til then.)

      03821: Half Orc Merchant
       
      I saw this guy and all I could think of was a random merchant walking between towns trying to stop you before you go to town and buy his wares. He might even have a quest or two at some point. 
       
      The first photo is the base work I did on him. These is a VERY heavy miniature. I decided to keep him attached and just sculpt a base around his to blend. There will be grass and what not at the end which will blend things even better. I primed this chap then started working on his back pack and decided I should stop and do the face since it is usually the hardest point for me. It came out well and I may tweak it a be by the end. I wanted him to look like a "Fancy man" trying to get your attention and putting his best face forward to sell his wares. HA! The back pack coloration is inspired by the Legend of Zelda Breath of the wild treasure chest I saw online; dark brown with gold trim. Also in this picture you can see the rest of the base. I wanted to portray him possibly breaking over a direction sign (to the town) so you will ask him then he would offer his wares.

      Primaris Space Marine (Warhammer 40,000)
      by Games Workshop
       
      This was my first warhammer figure I've ever done. I've always enjoyed the theme of the game but never really like the Space Marines because they are to short. When I saw these new, taller, ones I actually got excited to paint one. The height on these guys are amazing. They really have a better feel about them. The issue was that I only wanted to paint one (for now) and that is when a friendly forumnite told me about this book they just released "Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000." I jumped at the chance at the book comes with one miniature on a nice base for only $15. I called my local GW store and they saved it for me. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to just paint a miniature and not spend loads of cash on a single miniature or a three pack. 
       
      I decided to go with a blood angel look for this guy. But I wanted to make it look a little unique so I did those grey chevrons on the shoulder and knee. This was also the first time I've done battle damage like you see here. It was FAR easier than I thought and the look is wonderful! I was very happy the way it turned out. 
       
      With this guy I did fill in the base with GreenStuff to give the model a little bit more weight. You can see that in the WIP below. 
       
      Thanks for the support.

      General Drake: 50147
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      Woah! This was a miniature that I put on a shelf for WAY to long. I'm glad to be done with him. Really enjoyed this one. And no that is not a snake at his feet it is a cable... but I realize now it looks like a snake. Oh well. I hope you guys and gals enjoy it. I tried to make the brim of his cap look reflective. it turned out alright. 
       
      The back drops are Hanger18, FYI.
