I've been working on a quick paint scheme to get thru some cultists.  Ideally these guys will be the start of my Traitor Guard as conscripts. 

I've got some dirtying up to do with pigments  but thought I'd get some input from peeps here.

 

1) I would like to give props to the guys at Bitter Old Painters website.  If you guys are reading this - thank you for the inspiration some amazing work!  So this is my attempt at painting mainly with washes.

 

2) I would like to get opinions on the flesh tones?  Instead of going with a greenish hue I wanted these guys to have a ghastly purplish / bruised skin look to them.  Does this look stupid?  I'm afraid I've overdone it a bit???

My  LFC ( Least Favorite Cultist )  - I'm planning on chopping up his twin brother.  Not sure if he should have a Red eye or should be repainted steel like a metal eyepatch.

Thanks any c&c greatly appreciated!  

There are lot's of amazing painters on this website to learn from!

He felt anger grow within him, driving out the sense of bewilderment. His life had been rendered meaningless. His people had been betrayed. His world had been stolen. Even the Dark Angels had been destroyed. Ten thousand years of tradition ended here. There were no more bold huntsmen of the plains for the sky warriors to recruit.
The chapter might continue, but its heritage had been destroyed – it would never be the same again. Two Heads Talking was of the last generation of Space Marines recruited from the plains people. There would be no more.

Very nice start Brother. The purple tint for the skin tone really works well. A cross of heavy bruising and a frankensteinian creation.

keep up the good work :)

The purple flesh looks great, it comes across very unsettling, which is great for those pesky traitors. Keep it up!

It's beginning to look a lot like Chaos...

 

Was able to knock out a squad of 10 'regulars'.  It's a quick and easy paint job using lots of washes.

The duplicates cultists I plan  to do some minor conversions with to mix it up.

I have a general idea of the back story of these guys.  Will type it up once I catch up on real work.

Ex Planetary Defense survivors of a orbital bombardment by the imperium.   

Think Gamma World - mad max - post apocalypse.

 

I want to build some enforcers to look like this!

Had the booth set up so I took a few pics of the mob.

I've gone for the bruised skin look and wondering if I went over board on the purple.

I've got some custom bases ready to be primed.  Once I get em all based I'll probably grim em up a good bit.

This was my first experiment painting with washes and i'm diggin it so far.

Hey, I like them a lot. I don't think you got carried away with the purple, not at all. They look almost undead to me ... and while I don't know if that's what you're trying to achieve, I do think they look great.

How about the second (or rather the first) lot above, the one you posted on January 2? That seems to be a different palette – and perhaps I like it even slightly better? But, then, stuff like that is clearly a matter of taste.

I'll check back to see how this is developing. Keep going.

They look really impressive, any chance of a recipe for the skin tone? You have got the look spot on

Thanks guys.  The first batch had more purple wash in it. 

Quick recipe

1)  Primed -  white or  zenithal  

2)  Base -  50-50 thinned Vallejo MC Light Flesh.  Ended up coating it 2x because coverage wasn't great

3)  Wash -  25%  Rakarth Flesh +  25% VMC Light Flesh + 50% Medium ( i used Lahmian and water but straight water is fine ) <- added drps of druchii violet wash  to taste

4)  Highlight(s) use the Rakarth + Light Flesh Mix to hit the high spots and blend.  On some I did a little extra dry brush using white or screaming skull

Been slowly working on these guys but I figure it's time to make this is my proper WIP thread.

Pardon the cell pics.  I'll set up a booth when they are finished - finished.

Hellbrute needs more highlighting and weathering.

The twins - basically base coated at this point.  Experimented with different Vallejo Golds / Brass combos

A quick family photo

getting everything to pretty much the same state.  I intend to add more weathering especially rust pigments to the bases.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice work so far!  Are you thinking of submitting anything for ETL this year?  Any number of models will help your faction!


Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.

Thanks!  Just started working on my ETL vow last night for the 1st legion.  

I'm hoping it will motivate me to finally finish painting my DV boxset from 6th ed!

Not sure if I should resurrect my old thread or post a new on in the csm forum.

 

Trying to figure out what to do with these Snap Fit Marines from the Assassins box set.

I mocked up some capes out with blue tac to see how it would look.

Obviously I'd do this up right with Green Stuff - but just wanted to get opinions.

Not alot I can do with these guys without busting out a dremel.

 

The idea is that I'll paint the set of cultists, csm and Mr. Chaos Sorcerer as Sons of the Cyclops /  Tzeentch to go with my small Black Legion army.

 

Capes or no capes?

Ok I'm rebooting my Black Legion and giving my Dark Angels a break till I finish these guys.

I'm going to use these guys from my DV set + A:EF to ally with some traitor guard.

 

I'm taking a bit of a break in general w/ 3 month old baby and new house that needs a ton of work. 

In the mean time I'm going to use time away from painting to write a proper back story for my warband.
