Just a small update today.
I’ve received so many wonderful comments and thoughts from so many people in the past two days! I also received a supercool feature over at Ironsleet, complete with a nice analysis by Scriptor Patrick Gray.
It feels great to receive such a fantastic welcoming into the blogosphere.
now to business
I got some odd wips for you today
Firstly, I did a super quick test paint of a Sicarian gun. Just to get some ideas for how I want to paint metal.
I’m pretty happy with the result. But as someone who paints on large canvases I know that small-scale hides faults. I enjoy adding agrax earthshade in pretty thick chunks. It gives neat matte negative spaces on the model that somehow almost seems to have an inner soft luminescence.
And now for the clay.
I decided to test sculpting a custom face for the Adeptus Astarte in my last post.
(flagellant head as size comparison)
I used some of the faces from forge-world as a reference. I still have to fill the eye socket with some actual eyes. But I’m waiting for the greenstuff to cure. I’ve left the back of his head a bit thin and weird as I’m planing on filling it with cables.
