Wow, been a while since I posted anything here. Been doing a lot of prep on a bunch of Space Wolves for 40K. I don't actually play, but due to a few things happening, I ended up with a bunch of space wolves. I've never painted an army before, so I thought it'd make a good project. Or a quick method of going mad. We'll see which one. This fella is intended for my FLGS's painting contest. Gonna turn it in tomorrow. This was my first go at Zenithal shading. First I primed it black, then grey at 45 degrees, then white at about 10 degrees. Pre-shades it. I then did the same with the blue-grey basecoat colors, repeating the shadow, midtone, highlight. There's a bit of a gap. I didn't assemble it quite how the instructions recommend. You're supposed to put everything together, then paint it. However, I painted it in stages. And to be able to do the zenithal, but paint the cockpit separately, I had to leave the top as a separate piece until I was done. It's not showing really well here, but I did some heat staining effects on the side guns there. I also added a slight "glow" effect to the runes. It doesn't really show here, but it looks okay in person. Basically just a white wash, with a blue glaze over it. You can kind of see the heat staining effect on the engines here. I don't think I'll actually win the contest, but I think it's one of the best things I've painted, so I'm glad I decided to enter. One good thing about these contests is that it's really inspired me to pick up the brush.
