Off course!

My method is very fast and simple.

I start with a Ceramite white base, with bolter, backpack and shouldpads not yet glued at the moment - those will instead get an Abaddon Black base.

When the white is done I wash the whole model in Nuln Oil.

After that, I drybrush it with White Scar - and the armour is pretty much done, you can add battle damage (I do it with three layers: Black area, smaller 1:1 Black/Silver area inside of it, smaller again pure Mithril Silver area. Like Matrioska!) and paint the joints black.

As for the eye lenses, I just paint them red. 

I'm not that awesome painter tongue.png

Coming to the shoulderpads, I paint the trims first (currently with an old Valleyo gold... you can use any tonality you like, really) and then the inner part with Kantor Blue, and those are then highlighted with the same colour+a very small touch of white.

Same with the backpack: Abaddon Black, Kantor Blue, drybrush with a very little whitened Kantor Blue.

Then I usually wash the whole shoulderpads with Agrax Eartshade - works great on gold, and adds that little depth between the trims and the blue.

Just drybrush the bolter and you're done!

Regarding blood, I'm trying a lot of different options. 

Currently, I'm toying with Vernidas on Red Gore... it needs his own brush (which will be consumed by it 'till destruction, just like a World Eater by his Nails!) but it's not that bad, making the blood shiny.

Plus Vernidas is quite cheap and lasts for a loooong long time.

But if you can put your hands on some Blood for the Blood God, go for it!

 

Once I'll start painting the next batch I'll put some step by step pictures.

Hope to be of help!

 

@Augustus: Hah!

First: Flint, I tried to follow your advice. 

The picture does not show them very well because of my not so encouraging skills as a photographer, but the pf has some small areas that look like encrusted blood, and I like my Kull remarkably more. 

I have to thank you smile.png

Second: I'd like to show you gents a kitbash I made yesterday.

He is Borg, Pitchampion of the Merciless. 

I wanted to give him a gladiatorial look, and I am quite pleased with how he came out.

Granted, a boarding shield would make him a perfect secutor...

Next are 15 Astartes from Tactical Squad Rhaskos.

I'll take some step-by-step pictures for you, Warder.

I didn't do it with the Butchers because I though it would be better to show it on regular marines, hope you'll agree!

Here's my finished Storm Eagle...

The only thing I hated more than painting it, was building it <.<

@Flint: Thank you! Kantor blue base, then several layers of Kantor+Ceramite white, with the proportion growing towards the latter every time. Always going on the inside, to the inner part is almost white and the borders are Kantor blue.

The edges, then, were done in the same way!

 

@Augustus: I'm no good at painting tanks. NO good. I'm more of an infantry guy!

 

@Pearson! Thank you! ^_^

It doens't show, buddy. You did an excellent job. Even though I prefer transparent canopies, as Flint also said, I think you couldn't have done a better job doing an opaque paint job.

Small update.
Today I decided Mr T. (fools!) deserved better than a regular base and a "not even veteran" mk II helmet.
So here I give you Centurion Thanatos version 2.0 :

103_1972.jpg

103_1974.jpg

103_1977.jpg

103_1978.jpg

I have to say, I'm quite satisfied of him now.



Words cannot show how much I love that model I know that I'm buying myself a heavy chainsword now. I love you paint scheme a lot more than the forgeworld one, it has a more gritty feeling to it. Love the red butchers. Will we be seeing Khârn soon?

@Augustus: Thank you, mate! That was so encouraging I am already working on my dreadclaw ^_^

 

@ThatOneMarshal: Glad you like Thanatos! I invested quite some time in making him, both in background and in miniature. 

Therefore, my heart sings every time someone appreciates him!

By the way, Khârn is ready as well as Angron.

They will be in the next update, as soon as I take the pictures! :D

I used a lot of different techniques really tongue.png

When I started, I used Blood red (Mephiston red now, I think?) with a wash or two of Agrax Eartshade.

It gave it darker edges and a shiny look:

 

27y9a40.jpg

 

Then I tried do follow Flint's tip to use several shades of blood, from essicated to freshly spilled: Starting from bown, apply different layers and splatters down to pure Mephiston Red (at least, this is how I interpreted it tongue.png) which then I covered with Vernidas, again to obtain the shiny sinister look that I love:

 

103_2049.jpg

 

At the moment, I'm simply trying Blood for the Blood God.

Surely the fastest method tongue.png

Your World Eaters look great brother. I have been experimenting mixing valejio smoke with Tamear Clear Red to get a dark dried blood, with blood for the blood god as my fresher colourm
