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

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.....

 

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.

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.

      Thanks to a generous gift from one of my players, I got a chance to paint the new version of Zodgrod Wortsnogga, the first miniature I painted some 21 years ago.
       
      I tried to copy the bizarre color scheme of the original Tamiya Acrylics as much as I could, the new plastic version has some drastic design changes.
       
      The new one was using all Reaper paints and Army Painter tones.

      Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.
       

       
      This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).
       

       
      Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.
       

       
      This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).
       

       
      Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.
       

       
      And this is the Sea Elf team.
      We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).
       
      Making a start on Sorcha:-
       

       
      Painted the furry collar on her cape.
      It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).
       
      Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
       
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!

      Any Spaceport bar, where hard-bitten adventurers gather, will have a regular willing to regale strangers with tales of Lady Vulnavia's exploits, and most of the tales contain a reason behind her always veiled face. Is she secretly an exiled alien princess, or was she badly scarred duelling the King of the Space Pirates? Only the Lady knows and she's not telling.
       
      Presenting Lady Vulnavia, woman of mystery and leader of the Starstriders. She was part of the (now OOP, I think) Killteam:- Rogue Trader boxset from Games Workshop.
       
      Not one of my best paintjobs, but I'm still pretty happy with how she turned out.

      As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the  front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!
