Ok so my local store is running a luck dip painting comp for the store anniversary. I got The Changeling so I'm giving it a go.

I've got an idea for the scheme of a galaxy, nebula cloak with blue and gold trim. I've not painted a galaxy effect before and I'm not using an airbrush but here's as far as I've got with some wet blending, sponges and some washing and glazing. I know I need to add stars and stuff but I'd like some feedback on the effect I have achieved so far.

Let me know what you think!

Plan so far is bright blue trim to the cloak, gold jewellery etc, and a place skin tone but I'm open to suggestions especially before I go too far!

Looks promising- like a Dementor from the Harry Potter films, or a Ringwraith in Peter Jackson's works.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Tolkein's works mate ;) hopefully it will end up a bit more colourful than that when done!

Decided to paint each arm using a different shade colour, as with the very dark cloak I still want lots of colour, even if done subtley on this Tzeentchian fellow.

The skin does need another highlight or two but i'm currently reasonably happy with the shape this is starting to take.

Looking good! I really like the very subtle difference between each arm, and the starfield effect is really impressive, especially given it was done without an airbrush!

I will say I'd be tempted to do something a bit different with the flames coming from the robe. Most notably, when you're painting fire you usually want to do it brightest in the recesses. That aside though this is looking great!

Thanks! The flames for the base are just hexwraith flame over ulthuan grey at the moment, just so I could see what that might look like, I'm increasingly tempted to re-do them as regular flame.

Here's a quick update, I've been working on the blue trim on the stole etc, I know I'm going to need to go back and tidy up, but there's a few other bits I need to do before I go back to that.

Only added a few basecoats since the above update but even then the impact has clarified how my eventual plan will look and o think it will work. Let me know what you think.

I'm making decent progress on the gold on this one, but before I go ahead and put the final highlights I wonder if I should give it a glaze and if so with which colours? Let me know if you have any suggestions.

So, I glazed the gold with yriel yellow mixed into contrast medium, which worked out ok, I then went back with reikland flesh shade before hitting the final highlights of ushabti bone and white scar. So then I went and did the gemstones which I'm quite pleased with.

Plan is to do the shaft of the shaft in ivory/bone and the fish in blue-silvers so I guess the feathers should be green and purple. Anyone got any better suggestions?

Got the ivories done, and made a start on the head of the staff, i:'m getting close with this guy, which means I will have plenty of time to finish another project due the same day, so will be glad to be done.

All comments as ever appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm basically all done bar the basing now, I have to say it's been quite refreshing painting something that I wouldn't normally bother with. I'm pretty conscious of my hobby budget so I only tend to buy stuff for my ongoing word bearers project and even then on a pretty slow basis.

I finished him! I have to say I really struggled with the "tzeentch energy" underneath him, I think this was the fourth attempt and if I'm not I'm not 100% satisfied. However overall I'm pretty pleased with my efforts on this model which was a bit of a departure for me in terms of things to paint. Now to get him entered in the competition!

Please do let me know what you think!

Very nice work! Looks properly foreboding and sinister, the somewhat darker tones definitely help that sculpt. I generally prefer the older version but you did a superb job on the plastic kit!
