Ged doo dah choappah! Remember that big assed bag of imperial guard Cadians I got from a bargain bin a while back?
Welp, did a quick test peice painting directly over the original paint job.
I started off with an overbrush of Cryx Base to flatten out the original glossy finish. A wash of army painter dark, then I dusted up through the dirt colours of my base. I forget their names. Dirty McDirt and Soily McSoil, with a Tyrant Skull finish.
The skin was done using a neat trick I have been using lately- by mixing the shading wash into the base paint colour coat, it both flows more easily and ties tighter to the shade. In this case Reikland Flesh mixed in with a VMC flesh that shall remain anonymous for... uh... reasons. Look, I haven't slept much lately.
I am tempted to fix the arms seams by building over those gloriously ridonkulous deltoids with a little green stuff- however as my sculpty kit is packed away, that will have to wait.
Overall, he was fast and fun to paint. I have a small squad picked from the bag that I will do for now so I can use them to play Stardred with. The rest will have a lovely bath in dettol to easy away their pains. They may become parts for freakish cultists. Because that's how I roll.
My Cryx army arrived today. Not a bad paint job on them at all- however they are destined for tutorial video fodder- so they too shall know the delicious kiss of dettol.
Okay- gonna go bang gorgeous chicks in a satanic blood orgy of wanton destruction the likes of which makes angels tremble. Kidding. It's cup of tea and bed for me. X
Nice! I've got a small, but heavy, box of these fellas that I bought off eBay about 18 months ago in a weird fit of nostalgia. This is the look that I was going to aim for - you've dispelled my fears that the sculpts are too 'cartoony'.ReplyDelete
I find muting down colours with warm grey and weathering helps to kill cartoony looking minis. Post links when you paint them!Delete
Great skin tones on this one - so whatever your secret recipe is, it's working really well! (;ReplyDelete
