How they were done:

White basecoat and then basic colours in Polished Gold (Vallejo), Boltgun Metal (e.g. wings), Mithril Silver and Blood Red. The standard is Red Gore as base colour.

The Blood Red was highlighted with Fiery Orange, Boltgun with Mithril, Black with Codex Grey and white. The base is black with Codex Grey and white drybrush. The snow is Ziterdes snowpaste. The gold was highlighted with Mithril. One has to be careful there, sloppiness shows. But don´t overdo it either, we just want so more contrast. The powerweapons are Red Gore as base and then Blood Red and Fiery Orange for the flashes. Finally Quickshade StrongTone brushed on (no dipping). Varnished with Vallejo matte from the can. Blood drops and eyes done in the classical "gem fashion". The standard received a light Ghostly Grey drybrush for a little highlight.

The finish was more matte the expected (see wip-pics for the difference). In the end I would have preferred to just apply the matte varnish on certain areas like the standard and leave the rest glossy. Well, you live and learn. I still do like the end result. All techniques are not complicated in themselves and just require a steady hand. The high amount of detail just takes quite some time get worked on. And I still forgot to paint some blooddrops on the powerfist. ^^ One final thing I would do differently now is to paint the "Bloodangel" caption on the standard in gold to make it stand out better.

Enjoy!

Best Sanguinary guard I've seen yet. My German is quite bad but I got the jist of what you were saying and it seems not too complicated for what the results are.

I'd just like to mention that I would like to use Matt Ward's face as a pinata for the abominations he has made of the two Power Armour Codicies with which he was entrusted.

Those are absolutely killer.

i love them, i am soooo jealous or your skills.
the only thing is that sword blades seem to just meld with the model. they are similar colours as the armour. i would of painted them in a contrast colour eg. blue/green.
but that's my opinion. seriously well done though

das ist sehr gut ;)

Very nice, :)
You should consider adding a touch of white to your power weapons' lightning effects.

Thanks all. :P

I added the translation of the how-to.

@ Custodian

It was a conscious decision to paint the blades as I did. I follow the painting theory of using an as limited as possible range of colours. If I can get rid of a colour because it is not helping the overall impression I usually do so. For example the Laurels on the helmets and chests. I didn't do them in green but in silver like other applications. This saved me time and prevented another different colour used on the model. The more colours, the more disharmonious the models potentially are. Yet you have to find the right balance because otherwise, the models will look bland. In the beginning I wanted to do the weapon casings in black like often seen on BAs. Yet when I had painted part of the shoulder pads in red it felt naturally to paint the casings in red as well. And from there I came to the powerweapons and doing them in a red way as well. In the case of the powerweapons you could do them in contrasting colour and still have a great looking model (as the official paintjobs e.g.). But I do like it very much this way. I don't think at all that the blend in with the armour, they are just not standing out as one is probably used to. Adding to that I thought about usind a little white as final highlight (@ Brother Nihm) but also decided otherwise. It was one part I like the look exactly like that and the other was laziness in not adding another step in the painting process. ^^ But I will try it out sometime.

The way I have painted the models you have three major colours and their variantions: Gold, silver and red. The official models also have white, blue and green as major noticable colours. Double of what I used. I hope I was able to properly describe the thought process underlying my work. All in all it is like always: everything is just a matter of taste and there is no right and wrong.

Ah, I don't think I am a match for the Eavy Metal team. ^^ Just look at the nmm-tutorial in the current White Dwarf. That is seriously cool stuff. Could I do that? Probably. Will I ever? Not likely. My sanity is threatened enough as it is. :sweat: And I just saw the new greatcoat-infantry from Wargames Factory. I want them badly! :blush: So many miniatures. Yikes.

Well, quickshade is not a GW product...they decided that he used a devlan mud wash to sell it

‘Sanguinius will stand at Eternity Gate with tears in his eyes and acid in his heart, no matter what you and Erebus hope to accomplish at Signus Prime. Remember that, when your gambit there fails. Remember it when you face the Angel on the final day. Remember that I was the one who told you how it would really end.’

Congrats mate - that was so funny on the GW site.

GW: Nope, quickshade? Army Painter? never heard of them! Do they even exist?

I can understand them not giving Army Painter any publicity but why say Devlan Mud - remember...

What a surprise. They didn´t tell me in advance if and when they were going to use the photos I sent them. :D

Well, it is not their product so let´s not be too harsh on them (too much GW hatin around these days imho). When I sent them my Venerable Dreadnought pictures I told them upfront that I used Quickshade but that one can achieve a quite similar effect with Devlan Mud (which is true) or the like. So they wrote washed last time as well. And he is just making a guess as this time I indeed didn´t write anything about the technique used. If I were GW I wouldn´t mention Armypainter, too.

So a little selfcensure goes a long way. I feel a little dirty, yet quite excellent still. :)

too much GW hatin around these days imho


That there is and people seem to forget that without GW there wouldn't be any awesome models, this site wouldn't exist, we probably would never meet or speak to half the people we know and, finally, there wouldn't be a GW to moan about ;)

:)

'Everything GW have told you is a lie'


Nice to see you back mate (did you ever get round to that termi tutorial?). As I recall the original phrase was 'Everything you have been told is a lie...' and it was displayed on the tops of GW staff members to send out the message that the forums complaining about the new GW website were wrong in their criticisms and that the web-techno-mages were just struggling to get all that juicy brain juice of GW HQ into one site in such a short time. Then some forums got a hold of the design and made the t-shirts to say that GW was lying about the lying.. my head hurts

I love the color of the wings! Can you explain how you did them in more detail? I understand you did boltgun metal with mithril highlights, but how'd you make them dark golden?

thanks
