Not too much progress, but I'm still at the "building up" stage. Another green coat on the slabshield and the boltgun metal pot opened and I'll have built up enough for some washing. Once that's done I can get to the detail and it'll look much more complete!

I get the feeling leaving the carapace off might have added needless work but the decision has been made now tongue.png I'm well on schedule for completion, I'll spend the remainder of this evening refining the background pieces a bit more smile.png

Good decision leaving the carapace off, it would bug you otherwise when you looked at the model closely seeing the grey underneath. Looking good, those splashes of red work so well.

Thanks guys, I have to remind myself that the model is more done than it looks tongue.png Once the black wash is applied that's the mundane things done and I can spend a weekend day in the glorious natural daylight doing the interesting details that complete the model biggrin.png I think the background pieces are all but done now, I'll return to them for a final check when posting my completion as usual smile.png

 

Plenty of time left for completions, over two weeks - but that time will soon pass as boring and annoying real life gets in the way! Let's all try and get some form of update done this week so we're all on track to cross the finishing line thumbsup.gif

 

edit: your witch can't sneak in under the nose of the commissariat that easily! ;) Fine attention to the model there, the pallid skin is especially good - well done! :D

Lots of great completions which is fantastic, but many backgrounds are still missing. As long as nobody gets complacent and forgets, they're the easiest way to gain promotions after all...

Hey, Baz. How did you do your base?

 

Keirdale, I'm wondering about the highlighting on your psychers capes. How did you paint those?

Thanks, Baz. I'm still having issues with drybrushing. I either have too much or too little paint. It's annoying.

Great work, all!
Our Baz, I really like that Astropath. I wish I'd done a paler skintone on my psykers. Maybe I'll save something that pale for void-born characters. I do need to do a master of the fleet sometime...

I cannot agree more with Lord commissar WarriorFish that you can only improve by experimenting. :tu:

Chefzilla try drybrushing with less paint than you think you'll need, and just keep brushing back and forth until it starts to take. Better to take your time than use too much.
The robes of my psykers were a Death World Forest base with Cadian Green drybrushed over it then Ogryn Green drybrushed lighter (both in paint volume and passes taken over the model) over the upper surfaces only. Then Athonian Camoshade over the lot. This I put on too heavily and it looked badly in some recessed areas of the robes.
Had I had more patience I would have taken the advice I received from a GW staff member...he had a beautiful WHFB banshee whose robes almost seem to have a cloth-like texture. He built it up with countless passes of drybrushing (in different directions if I remember correctly) and thin washes/shades.
I did something similar with my enginseer's robes and they look far better than my psykers'.

Likewise the resurrection orb/palantir was adapted from how Duncan paints one in a GW tutorial video. How I did mine I'll explain in my army thread when I have time.

With dry brushing you want to remove almost all the paint, test it on your hand it should only leave a little colour on then you're ready to go :)

WarriorFish is correct and it is a good idea to use a paper towel to remove excess paint from the drybrush.

Saying that, I use 3 levels of drybrushing, wet, normal and dry. This allows me to highlight with gradually lighter shades.

thanks Kierdale/Mehman/warriorfish , he was a bit of an experiment as I've not done black before. Really happy with how it has come out. Gonna use that scheme for the rest of my Psykers.

Chefzilla. Don't be afraid to try the drybrushing, if you add to much, just paint over and go again. I never get right first time usually. I used it to highlight the Astropath and my Orgyn (http://www.bolterand...-wip/?p=3925615) it can give very quick results.

On the robes, yes indeed. All drybrushing.
I always do a shade over the top at the end so it doesn't look so scratchy.
Do multiple layers and it'll look even better.

Whilst not a Guardsman model, I've used drybrushing to build up contrasting colours on Chaos Spawn in my Quintos WIP thread (see my sig). The trick for me was using a larger brush with soft bristles so each pass left some paint behind. You cam always tidy thr edges up later either by edging in a highlight colour or dabbing the brush on to blend the colour border

The Survivor and the Contriver

The psyker battle squads of Kierdale’s Shrineworld garrison are looked upon with great suspicion by the rest of the regiment. Line infantrymen will spit on the ground before them and make the symbol of the Aquila upon their chests and even company commanders will think twice before calling upon their ethereal and esoteric abilities, avoiding meeting their eyes at all times. The Primaris Psykers assigned to the 41st regiment of foot are treated a little better due to their perceived rank and the supposed hardiness of their training, though still there is a rift between the mundanes and those with the Sight.

 

med_gallery_63428_8145_388908.jpg

The above pict shows Primaris Psyker Eldrid wielding his Force staff from which can be seen hanging fetish beads and a pair of Janus skulls carved by the psyker himself from the vertebrae and skulls of his former gestaltkin.

The case of Eldrid is a curious one, for during his time with the Scholastica Psykana he was judged to possess fine control though lacked raw power. Something was holding him back from opening his mind fully to the Warp. This reticence saw him assigned to a Psyker Battle Squad rather than fulfilling his potential as a Primaris. His training continued as part of a gestalt and, over the following years it was as if his personality was stripped from him. Perhaps a better analogy would be that his personality became merged, melded with the other eight members of his unit. Eventually the nine would no longer need to converse amongst themselves for their thoughts were shared, and often when addressed by Outsiders they would speak for each other, or all at once as one voice, much to the consternation of the listener.

It is common for those who have forged brotherly ties in combat to suffer survivor’s guilt at the loss of those brothers. How they can we describe the horror of losing eight-ninths of one’s own self? For such occurred to PSB-124C in the St.Dunsany’s Day invasion on Vionym III. At first it appeared as if the lone survivor of PSB-124C would have to be put to death, so severe was his trauma, until his superiors discovered that Eldrid has survived by doing what he had been incapable of all these years: he had opened himself to the Warp, smiting those who had slain his gestaltkin.

After undergoing surgeries to install cyberpsycho buffers into his cranium, Eldrid found himself reevaluated and reassigned as a Primaris Psyker.

A shell of the man he once was, prone to talking to himself in distinctly different voices and indeed carrying out entire conversations with himself, the Primaris Psyker was deployed to Kierdale’s Shrineworld. He is known to keep his distance from others, both frightful of making connections with others and loathing to hear the common soldiery lamenting the loss of their own squadmates.

 

med_gallery_63428_8145_391565.jpg

The above pict shows Primaris Psyker Obolensky Samuil examining an artifact recovered after clashes with androidform Xenos wakened by Imperial surveys of the planet Taharka IV. Primaris Psyker Obolensky was later admonished for his actions by commissariat members attached to the 41st regiment of foot. The artifact however was lost and its current location is unknown.

Spoiler

While his peers burned insects with lighter on the hive world of Stalinvast, the young Obolensky Samuil was directing them into the blades of extractor fans by the force of his will, his actions going unnoticed by his family, overworked in the hive foundries. His peers would take great delight in pushing firecrackers into swarfgrub hives, while he took great pride in manipulating them to build a hive in his own image. It was this last act which caused his friends, who had always found him different, to turn against him. They destroyed the hive-statue and, spitting upon him and calling him a witch, attempted to drive him from their hab block.

The next day the leader of the gang was found dead by his parents, his ears, nose and mouth teaming with swarfgrubs. When the other children told tales of Obolensky Samuil’s actions the boy was hunted down and by pure chance or fate one cannot know but a Black Ship was scheduled to gather tithe from Stalinvast only a few days later.

Inducted into the Scholastica Psykana his tutors took great interest in young Samuil’s ability to exert his will over others and they let his whet his talent firstly upon insects and as the years passed steadily larger animals, through small rodents and mammals until they eventually let him experiment upon other Scholastica students, pitting his dominating will against their ability to resist. This was a challenge Samuil relished, and forcefully learned discipline: when once he failed to subvert the will of another student he attempted to do to them as he had the gang leader in his youth. The quick actions of his fellow pupils saved his would-be victim and Samuil felt the lash of his tutors. A similar incident occurred when he succeeded in dominating one of his weaker-willed instructors, one who had seen Samuil as something of a protégé to champion. By the time he graduated the Scholastica Psykana, Primaris psyker Obolensky Samuil -openly at least- understood his place within the chain of command.

When the Departmento Munitorum assigned him to Kierdale’s Shrineworld he smiled at the opportunity to direct masses of guardsmen. At the command of his superiors, of course...
