Thanks guys, glad the contemptor came out ok.
Personally, I still think it could have done without the gargoyles or the spike on th top, but otherwise, it came out beautifully, man.
Only thing I would still say is I'd recommend you invest in some Blood for the Blood God technical paint. That stuff will do wonders to your model and really add to that visceral realism you're trying to convey.
Glad you like it. As for the gargoyles: I just don't agree. They make for an excellent silhouette, which to me adds to the Night lords terror tactics. I'll keep using 'm. As for the blood for the blood god, see my answer of at helterskelter's reply:
I second use of blood for the blood god. You know why I knew this was gonna look awesome brother!
Ha! all the gore actually is doen with several mixes, all containing various ratio's of Red Gore, Rhinox Hide, Lahmian Medium, Blood for the Blood God, Tamyia Clear Red, and VGC Satin Varnish. I'm just not too much into the shiny business on my models. Blood clots incredibly fast - epsecially Astartes blood. Hence I don't think the gore should be overly shiny.
It's a stunning model, and I am quite honoured to be featured in its background, although things ended rather badly for my Astartes namesake -- a shame, really: I would have loved to see a model representing Kraud That said, I hope the fact he's torn apart rather messily doesn't contain any hidden messages to me?
Anyway, fantastic work. I'd say he's still a bit heavy on the mangled corpses, but then I can appreciate the fact you're trying to distance him from the look and feel of your other contemptor, and all the grisly trophies are doing a great job of conveying just that.
Oh, and I totally second noctus cornix's suggestion regarding the technical paint! You may even want to purchase some Tamiya Clear Red, if you can get your hands of it, because it's a notch above Blood for the Blood God, in my opinion, and the bigger bottle will last you longer. Keep in mind, though, that most important thing with glossy "blood paints" is to know when to stop
Anyway, fantastic job! Looking very much forward to your next update!
When I first read I was like "What is he talking about?" Then I reread the fluff and realized I posted the second-to last version with the original names. I thought of including you as the nastiest of the marines before I wrote the end. So originally you were the guy who got killed. But then I realized you got killed and I switched the names of 'your' (original) character with the apothecary. So you *are* the apothecary. I stand corrected, and so will the OP be. And don't worry: I *am* making a cool character for you! You'll even get your own bike In fact I'd like to include all my forumite friends - I just hope I can Latinize/Night Lordize all the names.
Regarding BFTBG and Tamiya Clear red, see my reply to helterskelter.
Looks awesome! Needs more boobs though.
Cheers. Boobs will feature on feature Nigh Lords Noise Marines and their Rhino.
