Amazing start to the night lords mate, you have the character of the legion down pat and the freehand is great!
Look forward to more!
Thanks very much! Stay tuned for more then The Terminator searg will be next on my list.
Loving the chaplain!
I find it funny that there's a rather large amount of NL players and yet almost none of us use the same method for our lightning lol.
Thanks Black_out! I know right? It brings that much uniquness to our own NL forces.
Amazing work on that Chaplain! I think he's the best use of Kurtha Sedd I've seen yet.
That flesh cloak is just unreal.
Oh, just as a minor fluff aside, between the Terran and Nostraman legionaries, the Terrans were typically (somehow) even paler than the Nostramans, with entirely black eyes instead of the super exaggerated black iris that almost eclipses the sclera in the Nostramans. Some of them apparently had a thing for filing their teeth to points as well. Check out John French's "Child of Night" if you get a chance
A very eloquent praise as always Flint. Glad to see you here buddy!
Love the idea of using metal medium with the blue. I may need to borrow it.
How did you do the bone colour if you don't mind me asking?
Metal medium is such a nice technical paint to use. I wonder why I never used the stuff!
See below for my bone recipe
Nice work dude, any chance we could get the recipe for that cloak?
Thanks Brother Heinrich! Any way I could join the ranks of the 15th? wink wink
See my flesh color below for stealing
- Base with Model color Ivory (Not too sure what's an equivalent Citadel, you can probably get away with Ushabti Bone/White Scar mix)
- Wash with Umber Shade/Agrax Earthshade. Wait to dry.
- Base again with Ivory, but avoid recess.
- Layer on 50/50 Ivory and White mix, and follow the contour of the surface you're painting while avoiding the edges (to let the layer below show).
- Layer on white in the middle of the Ivory/White layer, to show off the extreme edge/centre of the area.
- Base with Tan/Bugman's Glow
- Wash with Fleshtone Shade/Reikland flesh/Ogryn flesh. Make sure the wash doesn't go too heavy in the recess, and lightly wipe off with a dry brush at the top/exposed areas. Wait to dry.
- Layer on the top areas a 70/30 mix of Bugman's Glow and Ivory. Best to paint this on in one stroke, from one point to the end. Top of folds, top areas, top of creases.
- Layer on Medium Fleshstone (Bestigor Flesh, and a tiny, tiny, TINY bit of mournfang brown), and streak on a layer at the top areas. Don't let the brush reach the end of the material, and if the stroke leaves a bit of a brush stroke at the end, the better.
- With a thin brush (sharp point). draw a line across your material with Black Red/Rhinox Hide. If the line runs across multiple folds, paint across the top, then go back and connect the lines as it goes through the recesses. Better to do this than chase a line through irregular surfaces.
- Draw small thin lines perpendicular along this line. No need to be neat.
- Do a light wash along the lines you've made with Fleshtone/Reikland. Wait to dry.
- With the same brush as before, use Black and trace the long line along the top of pronounced areas only. No need to do in the recesses. You don't even need to do continuous black lines across the pronounce surface, break it up if you want.
- With black again, paint small perpendicular lines as before. Again, you don't need to match these up with the brown layer.
- If you want different patches of material to be of a different colour, do a light wash over a specific area. You've done your work already on the shading and highlights, let the wash tint it to the color you want, eliminating the need to redo the highlight/layers/shading. (In the case of the Chaplain's cloak, I used Umber/Agrax shade)
