Looking good tomsev - love the purple weapons, good choice there! If you add black dots in the gun barrels (or better yet if you drill them) it will add trenedously to the final result! Excellent progress so far!

What can I tell you tomsev, looks really good! :) I think a bit lighter shade of gold would work well on it... Looks kind of brownish gold right now... As for the tubing, I'd say a bit more shine and you're done!

the gold looks brown because its only the basecoat, still need pre wash highlights and the final after wash highlights...  scrolls arent done either, and im thinking of doing the tubing on the arms in green like the purity seals or i might bring in some blue...

 

also wondering what colour should i do the gun casings in?

any thoughts?

He looks great. I hope to get pics up of mine, had some busy days this week. I like the red on the shoulders as well as the loin cloth. Can't wait to see the finished work. The only thing I would add is either drill out the barrel or put a black dot on the end to look like it's open.

Wow! I really like your choice of colors such as the purple force weapons and the bits of brass on the Termie face plates. Keep up the awesome work!

Love the powersword on that Dreadknight.

 

Do you airbrush that first metallic color on the Grandmaster and tank? The colors came out very even.

first off thanks alot...

 

nope no air brush at all, just chaos black primer, leadbelcher drybrush (think i did this 2 or 3 times), dragonhoff nightshade wash (again 2 - 3 coats to get a nice blue cover over the armour), then highlights with thinned chain mail, and thinned mithril silver easy as that...

Gotta love Leadbelcher. The blue shading on the grandmaster came out well. Just a subtle hint (last time I took a colored shade to a metallic it was to create blue necrons. Guessing I was going a bit heavier with my wash brush :P).
