Got a fair bit done on my heck turkey over the weekend - finished painting the torso.
Here are some pictures:
Here is the back half painted - you can see on the left how I did the gold trim over the whole of the model - its spray painted in Retributor Armour then dry brushed with Golden Griffon, which is kind of paste and hard to do in a controlled manner, hence the whole model being the trim colour. I then did my armour colour between the trim. After finishing the armour, I touched up any bits of trim I painted over and then gave the trim a final wash in Reikland Fleshshade.
This one is of the finished torso, along side the arm which has been drybrushed, and the wing which has noit (and is just plain retributor armour). It also shows (but is harder to make out) how the joining point for the wing and armour are bare plastic, to better allow gluing them later.
Now here is part of it people will rarely see, but I think looks cool so I'm sharing it. Some thoughts:
1. I considered putting a glow effect around the holes, but am not sure how it will look with doing it with a drybrush of yellow or white. What are your thoughts?
2. I'm not sure whether to highlight the "panes" of armour between the trim - I tried it in a small corner of a wing and it didn[t really add anything to the model for me, but it might look different if carried across the entire model. Thoughts?
3. Finally, do you think I should "dirty up" the thrusters with a drybrush of gold and black? Normally I would do so, but I trying to decide whether I like the clean look better. What do you guys think?
