Thanks Slips! Mako, I managed to find the scheme here.  It doesn't look bad, but it's probably easiest with an airbrush.

 


ts undercoat black then:

-spray undercoat army painter gun metal

-zenithal spray undercoat AP platemail

-drybrush runefang steel

-extreme highlight Vallejo air aluminium

-wash cassandora yellow

-wash again

-glaze top areas lamentors yellow:glaze medium 2:1

-repeat above

-weather/highlight with platemail

 

So, that's a possibility. I'm still leaning towards imitating Hyena's MM scheme (as best I can).

For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.

Actually, due to its nature of just layering shades and glazes over a silver base, its pretty easy to do by brush too; you just wont really get the Zenithal Highlights.

 

Its how I did these 3 in particular:

2016-01-22%2000.33.04_zpsizpoenqf.jpg

 

This one being specifically a test of the Cassandora & Lamenters Yellow parts over a Gold Base instead of Silver.

I'd settle for a nice, industrial yellow myself. Oh wait, I already did ;)

Looking forward to some colours to match the rest of your marvellous work!

Funny you should mention that, I went up to the FLGS today for an Apoc game (was playing with foul xenoforms, so no details msn-wink.gif ) and picked up a couple items:

Already had some Averland, hopefully I'll have some time this week to play around with a tester or two.
 
@Slips: Hmmm, guess I'll have to try it now. Thanks for the examples, love the Cataphractii dude.

See, you're learning what it means to be a Fist of the 284th now msn-wink.gif

 

I've always wondered what lamenter yellow actually did

 

Far as I understand it, the Citadel glazes are very thin paints that either intensify their color if layered over the same color, or change the tone of the color beneath if layered over a different tone. But my knowledge of paints is limited, so if someone can explain it better, please do smile.png

 

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to paint today, but I did have twenty minutes to sit down and blutack together a mock-up of the leader of an allied detachment to my Fists:

[Pict-capture ZX/5793-39-00] Unknown Legionnaire, Azra'il Company, IX Legion

 

Still have to source an empty right hand to rest on his waist, but I'm sure I'll find one somewhere biggrin.png Any comments or critique are welcome, since he is completely blutacked right now.

 

Of course it figures this particular moment of inspiration comes on the last day of the Blood Angels March of the Legions event msn-wink.gif Irony really can be a censored.gif sometimes. tongue.png

That's a great pose there, and there's empty right hands in the new Dev-kit. Otherwise, a bikerhand maybe?

The Blood Angels are the Renaissance in power armour, with all of that majesty, splendour, and ingenuity turned anaemic by vampirism... with a mandate to conquer the galaxy on wings of iron and fire. They're paladins with sacred weapons and beauteous facemasks, crying out in inhuman choirs for the taste of their enemies' blood.

I was hoping you'd like that. I think the grey knight kit has an open right hand... Maybe.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I asked the question of where to find open right hands in the P&M Questions forum, and ended up deciding to get a Devastator box for the bits I need.

Sadly, I haven't yet had time to paint due to a sudden deluge of homework, but hopefully this weekend I'll have something to show.

No focus? For shame. ;) I'd love to put some paint on models, but the quarter is coming to an end and I have my finals at the beginning next week, so I haven't really made time to. Next week after my finals, though, I will do my utmost to get some paint on plastic.

 

I actually saw your recipe back when you uploaded it, and I have it saved for reference, but four layers of yellow over a black undercoat? I really don't have the patience. Thanks for linking it, though. :tu:

For you, Dos, a mini-update, to show that I haven't entirely let this project slide in favor of the blue one. msn-wink.gif

 

And to show to my brothers of the B&C that, yes, I actually do paint once in a blue moon. tongue.png

 

fDubXKE.jpg

 

That's 3 layers of Averland Sunset over a grey basecoat, then washed with Seraphim Sepia, then layered with Yriel Yellow, with a glaze of Lamenters drying in this picture, too. After that, might do another highlight, but that'll probably wait until I've started other colors so I can see how it balances out. You'll probably notice that I didn't get entirely even coats, but in real life it ends up looking like battlewear, and with the chipping and stuff I was planning on it should end up looking pretty damn cool.

 

Anyways, I've got a question for y'all. I was thinking about doing black shoulderpads to mark out my Grenadier (Veteran) squads in this army. As much as I like the idea, I have some doubts about how it would look once put into effect. So, I'm asking you guys. Black shoulderpads? Yay or nay?

 

In any regard, thank y'all for the support. I'm still *really* excited about doing this project, and I'm incredibly thankful for the enthusiasm with which this has been received. Fluff is in the works for the next main update, which will come as soon as this guy is finished. Until then, sit tight, hold the fort, keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn...call the president Emperor! biggrin.png

Thanks for the response, guys. I've taken your recommendation and run with it and I really like it.

 

DqBl8lk.jpg

 

For whatever reason, the yellow looks really flat in these pictures, despite the fact that it looks nothing like this in real life. When I make my weekly hobby shop run on Saturday, I'll make sure to get some Dorn Yellow to put in some extreme edge highlights on the bridge of his nose and whatnot. All the other colors don't have any highlighting or layers done yet, though, which is why they all look very flat.

 

Also, freehanded Legion insignia:

I really should have waited til I finished everything else on the model, but I wanted to see if my theoretical easy method of doing the Fist symbol would work, and it basically did. It'll be incredibly easy to redo later if I screw it up.

Yellow generally tends to get washed out in photos sadly! Like the Helmet of my Deredeo. Its white but has the ridges highlighted in Dorn Yellow. Cant even see it in photos :P

 

Its kinda why my Yellow has gone a more...orange...route with a drybrush of Auric Armor gold applied afterwards for that Golden-Yellow shine.

 

As-is, he looks good and the yellow is solid! Dont be afraid to experiment in painting yellow though!
