Thanks man, I am still unsure about the skin tone, but I don't feel like the pics are doing it justice. I have decided to get the rest of him done and then make adjustments instead of constantly fiddling with the skin tone.

I hate you out of pure jealousy. That paint job brings tears to my eyes.

Seriously though, I have to steal some of your techniques, faaaar superior to the 'eavy metal version.

Thanks peeps! :D

 

What's annoying me with these pictures is that I don't think the red part of his skin is coming across as well as I'd like. When I look at the mini in front of me it looks okay, but the pics seemed to have washed some of the depth away. 

 

Unusually I find photos make my work look better than it usually is, but not in this case! Also, I realise we are all our own worst critics so I will just shut up! :D

Thanks chaps!

 

I shall be spending most of the day tomorrow working on him. I think it's likely to be the wings next, then the head and then all the armour and such! :D

 

I spend all day at the moment wishing I was at home painting Magnus!

Ta chaps! :D

 

I've started working on the metallics. 

 

magnus16.jpg

 

I've kinda messed the greaves up a little because I've been sat here playing with different shades of silver and gold all morning. As such the paint got a little too thick :(

 

Ah well, on wards and upwards. :/

I settled on doing it this way:

 

Boltgun metal > Liberator gold > Riekland wash > Liberator gold > Ironbreaker > Stormhost silver.

 

Not sure I think it's awesome though! >.<

I need to paint his nipple horns but I am currently just working on all the metallic parts of the model. All bone stuff will be done at the same time.

You've no idea how close I came to painting the toilet gold and calling it the "golden throne" but thought that might be going too far! :lol:

If I was put in a dreadnought, I would like to have full maneuverability not just waddle waddle shoot waddle punch.

Ta chaps!

 

I am prolly gonna revisit the greaves. I still don't like the metal work on them, so I reckon before the end I will go over them again. Other than that I am generally pretty happy! :D
