@ Russ Brother 92:
Thanks a lot - I thought a lot about what to do to make it fit the chapter's individual character and style. Glad you like it!
@ Marshal2 Crusaders:
Sure - here y'are
Thanks! Actually, I'm happier with this one than I am with the others. This time, I feel I haven't messed up as much as before ^^
Sorry, no CF in this squad. I'll add some Fists into the next DW squad (the shooty one), but for now, it'll contain a White Scar and a Raven Guard in addition to the ones I already completed.
Yeah, thanks for the crits
The major problem with the sword was that I underestimated its tendency to... form back into its original shape. oO
I really should have, as BtJ pointed out, straighted it in hot water... Well, too late now. Thanks a lot!
And, as I wrote in the reply to Dorns_fist's comment: sorry, no Sallie this time. But I sure will add one to the next squad!
Here's the tutorial.
Sorry for the pic quality - I have no idea why these turned out so... so... meh. oO
I will replace them in the "near" future, though. You won't have to wait to the year 40,000, I promise Step 1:
Prime the model with Chaos Black Spray. It's got to be totally black, so, if need be, just paint all the recesses black.
I guess you won't need any pictures here, since he who needs advice on how to prime a miniature should not be painting at all Step 2:
Basic colour. Mix Chaos Black and Adeptus Battlegrey (which I will refer to as "ABG" in the future, since that's not as annoying to write) about 80/20. Apply this first layer and basic colour to everywhere except for the recesses of the armour - in other words, where armour plates connect or you'd find shadows. Recommended brush size: 0.Step 3:
First highlight. Draw a line of 33/33/33 ABG/Chaos Black/Codex Grey around the edges of the armour, some 1 mm (1/25th of an inch, if I'm not mistaken) thick. Don't paint into the recesses, as this will ruin the depth this recipe is meant to create.
Recommended brush size: 0.Step 4:
Final highlight. Mix Chaos Black/Codex Grey 50/50 and edgebrush it to the most exalted edges of the model.
Recommended brush size: 0.
Let me know if you also need a tutorial for the tabard
