Looks great. Good paint job.

I'd preffer the non-lightsaber look, but, to each his own. Hope he preforms as well as he's painted.

That looks really, really good. Is that a Runic Staff he's holding? I have to go with Saphius though, kinda looks like a Darth Maul light saber...

Otherwise, the character looks, really, REALLY good. Well done.

Thanks for the comments. I was just messing about last night drinking paint through a straw and just thought about the light sabre effect. Even though its like the one from one of the worst movies ever made but I was thinking that it could work as a runic weapon or power weapon.
Why is it so far in the future that they are still using weapons from the iron age. If in the future there is only war try creating some have decent weapons instead of a sword and a gun that can over heat on you. Even we have created gun that can shoot round corners. Sort it out techs

How'd you get the shadow/shading effect so well on your character? Did you use a was or?

I think he just used some inks, and possibly some overshading with darker tones of the colors by mixing with black, or just a darker shade of the color.

I use inks for mine and highlight with the color mixed with white.

As for the lightsaber, it's a game, and you make it your own and have fun with it :lol: do what you enjoy

The shading is done by layering on watered down paints. the pa is base coated with shadow grey keeping black undercoat in the nooks and crannies. its washed over with 50-50 chaos black shadow grey. While it is still wet in the recesses a thin coat of codex grey is layered on to the raised area this will help blend better. Once the model is assembled final highlight of watered down spacewolves grey to the main raised areas its easy and quick. I can put on a wee tuturial if wanted. All the other colors are just three toned.

Brother General,
I'm fairly handy with a paint brush, but yeah, if you wouldn't mind throwing up a wee tutorial I'd love to read it!

Thanks,

Jonny

here goes first tutorial. shadow grey on black undercoat keep the black in the details like riges and groves this takes a while about and hour keep it clean and sharp
Posted Image

Once that is dry, wash over the whole model with 50/50 black and shadow grey. While the wash is wet I put a coat of 70/30 shadow grey space wolves grey on the main raised areas just to make the final highlights smoother.

layer on watered down codex grey to all main areas to be highlighted more on the areas you want to be a focal point helmet of chest.
Posted Image

once the rest of your model is painted layer on space wolves grey for the final highlight this is best done last as it stops the pa looking to bright like so.

hope thats ok for a tutorial soz about the pics not bad for 2 hours work though.

Gen,
so when you say a 50/50 wash of black and shadow grey - you're saying dilute the paint with water? How much?

Yeah do you just put the wash all over the model or just on the bits you want raised, what i meen is do you put the wash on the black bits as well (probably not)

Excellent painting by the way, Exactly how I want to do my SW wehn i start them again. thanks for the tutorial.

Hi sorry took so long to reply. I put the wash all over the model just leaving the head if its a beardy as it gives a shade to the black undercoat. For the right amount of water for the wash all I do is dip a large soft brush in water then add the paint and another quick dip in water. You dont want it to watery as it will leave water marks and you want don't want the wash to be to diluted. Let me know if it works out well.
