Scale 75 metallics are amazing. I just started using them. Going for necrotic gold on mine with the peridot alchemy for highlights.

 

Gives a nice washed out vibe to the gold colour. I am struggling with anthracite grey as it is too blue for what I want

 

Models are looking good, I prefer the first picture and am on the fence with the second shot, as it looks almost too pale... Could almost be a White Scar

Yea it's lighter, like i said i knew it was going to be divisive. I think when all is done it'll be ok, the photo looks real white but in hand its doing some interesting things. It'll be pretty fun to dirty up because like i mentioned ill be rocking a horror angle so these test models don't really have that going for them.

Bit more progress:

I like the color and if i play my cards right it'll dirty up to tone the brightness down to right where i want it. Trying some weird stuff with the pack markings too, less of what I've done before, we'll see how it turns out.

Heh its a bit weird i know, I hope it turns out ok. Idea is just to bring some intensity using the OG pack marking palette colors.

I suggest once you have it ironed out, factory line your shoulder pads. after 5-10, it gets easier

Thanks! Just doodlng really and trying to think outside the box a bit. Armor color is pretty close to the colors that Anamnesis used for his sisters but i sort of had to figure it out on my own so my results were a bit different. It's a black prime, with a grey zenithal shade then based Scale Artist GreyGreen. Zenithal White to gobi brown, and white sands. Lined in the graygreen and edged in the white sands. Im pretty likely to keep experimenting on it a bit too.

Yea its certainly possible! I was mostly trying to experiment with feel and your super correct at this stage. Im hoping maybe once the colors settle in I can get it to look right. Maybe i can come up with something else too but worst case i can fall back on the similar style markings as my CotGW since I think those looked pretty primal and on point.

I think the primal aspect can be acheived, while keeping the siloheutte.

Just reduce it to triangles like wolves already use.

Like a low polygon version

I like it a lot. Nice contrast between the black and red vs. the bright armour. And the freehand 👌.

I thiiiiiiiiink Im good now...

 

Im pretty happy with this one. Subbed the greygreen with a browngrey tone for the base and i think its more grounded in a way thats going to more conducive to the goal. I also tried a different take on the pack marking and and i think once i clean it up should be pretty spooky and different.

 

I think i can start building!

Dude. I really like this. A lot. The shoulder insignia, the shade of grey, everything. Can’t wait to see post-weathering!

Started the 3d chess portion of the program. If i'm going to start painting them i need basing and if i'm to base them i want to think display and what would be thematic and cool. The rub is always doing something darker and gritty like i like but not making it boring....but also not so interesting as to distract from the model.

 

I think i've landed on doing an overgrown urban jungle ruin with a red soil. I think a darker obsidian looking concrete with a dusty red will look pretty great with the colors i've chosen and using plants will add the color to not make it boring.

 

gallery_2327_16555_152152.jpg

 

Main reason i'm blueprinting it right now is i'd like to try integrating my basing into the display. It's pretty stupid honestly because the main event I'm doing this for got pushed back a year so isn't until next September so i'm forced to sort of approximate the type of list i want to run and assume certain units i know im going to take. Oh well even if i get rocked it'll look good right? :P

 

Here's the prototype base:

 

gallery_2327_16555_172823.jpg

 

Did a set of heads for the unit in addition to the first one i posted too for good measure:

 

gallery_2327_16555_599419.jpg

 

Went more feral look, more hair more teeth, etc. to show the higher rate of the mark. Should be good. Plan to paint them this week

Dang you Petey, I hate you in all the best ways! :lol:

Looking forward to seeing more of those bases and feral faces!

(And since you clearly paint better and faster than me, I'll get to see a completed display faster than I get my stuff together - so more stuff for me to steal... :evil:)

Did some tests on some new skin tones. My CotGW tended to be pretty pale but here I want to go a bit darker, sort of animal skin tones or at least a bit more ruddy. Didn't really hit an animal tone here but i think its appropriate. Second pic is a bit of a derp angle but i finally got "yellow" eyes to work. I tried it several times a ways back (maybe my OG wolfen) but it never looked right. I think the key was doing a golden brown cornea rather than yellow and adding the yellow in just before the pupil. Pretty happy with it!
