Painted this for my son's army - have to say he LOVES to give me challenges >< First it was the skin, 'it'd be cool to have a lot of blue veins under a light skin'... Um how about just blue?? lol And of course his whole them is based on Dune and Arrakis, with the troops looking (vaguely) like Fremen, complete with blue in blue eyes
So, the carapace on this was inspired by sandworms, and the little jars and stuff are supposed to be full of melange, with the skin imbued by it. Not entirely happy with the stripes, tbh, I wanted a more organic/grown look to them but eh. Live and learn.
Haven't had a ton of time to paint this summer but I've managed to get a few things done. I've also been working on my basing.
I plan on going back and adding some OSL to Damien but saving that for another day.
The Familiar is from GW, cira 1994 and was a fun little guy to paint.
C&C welcome and encouraged.

Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out. This was a really difficult miniature to photograph. The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base. I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it. I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange. Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure. In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure.
Comments and criticism are welcome.
