Dread looks much better - love the freehand chapter icon! - and the PA guys are coming along nicely. I also like the metal work on the knight's body. Will you be giving Kiera some Bomber-style pin-up nose art ...of Kiera Knightly in a skimpy outfit and suitable pose?

Hm.. I may well do that on my own knights, too. After I buy and assemble them.

Wow! really? thanks so much Trondheim I appreciate you checking out my stuff and having your say, I hope I don't spoil the look when I do the armour on her? it'll be hopefully similar to some of my filigree stuff but i'm hoping to use the binary instead still deciding how much of the armour to leave off? and what colour to do the decorative banding on the plates? ideas?

What direction? Hmm...

Well, if you want to continue down the current road you could go with hardcore old-school rap, like ICE-T, Public Enemy, NWA etc, or even Eminem for something more recent. There's also a lot of good stuff in early 90's grunge, or if you're after something harder that you can dance to, there's a line of quality music from Ministry to Rammstein that also works well (beware of the crap ones, though!)

If you mean the Knight, I'm quite partial to the red/yellow thing you have going (to tie in with the Griffons?) Turquoise would really work well against them as an accent colour - perhaps on the shoulder pads as part of the personal heraldry, though if you want to be more strict to the rules of heraldry you could use blue or green instead.

Looking at that scroll on the side of the gun made me think of brass etch - if you have any forgeworld brass etched scrolls, they would work well to add to any flat panels on the bare metal - and then to paint them as part of the metal - a cast-or-bolted on metal scroll that has aged identically to the metal it's attached to (like that scroll). A scroll and name for each of the weapon arms, perhaps?

Utilizing Careful Highlighting







Absolutely disgusting....


Its just too damn good, Nerd!! The shifting colors you got on the metals is just superb! I think my favorite two shots are the close up of the Battle Cannon and the second shot looking up at the knight.

Is it just a whole bunch of washes you used? Absolutely in love with the look!


Keep it up, nerd! Really looking forward to seeing you tackle the solid colors now!

Thanks Ramalangadingdong! solid colours are started and shaping up...... different.......

and yep, mate it's mainly focused washes and highlighting again and again in parts in between the different washes, so for instance i'll wash it with black then purple, then highlight with boltgun and then continue washing over it so it shows the highlight but colours it and makes it more blended without blending :-)

I am trying something new for me with the armour plates and so far it looks good, I just hope the camera can get a decent representation to show you soon! :-)

EEEeeeeepic, Rap Battles of Dakka!........

...... BEGIN!


RAMOS: For someone your age you should be running this partner! But with your level of skill you just need to try harder, a one trick pony with your patterns and ink and 99% of Dakka think that you stink. Blind to the fact that your brushes are splayed you should just stay in the bedroom and masturbate with Nerd RaAAAAGE!.
Flesh Eaters? Or Howling Griffons we need a break from your indecision it’s man up time and I have to add, learn to paint ‘cos you are BAD!
Cables and pipes are part of a model so much wash to hide them I can drown in the puddle!

Nerdfest: You can’t brush, you’re a chump you blow harder than your airbrush! Switching on skill doesn’t cut it in my world! With your Iwata your Badger your Paasche and your chrome, a lack of talent and finesse is just what you’ve shown , you see blending’s a skill and man I’ve got it in spades while you make your excuse “it’s just so I can play”
You run your paint in a jar and can churn out the numbers, but if the power goes out you hide under your covers,
while I see the front page and did it all on my own the time your airbrush hose broke was the only time you’ve been blown!


WHO WON?..... you decide!

Oh my sweet lord am I happy with this model! I was pushing myself to try new styles with my work when Ramos and I decided to have a friendly 'Knight of the Living dead' comp! I wanted to do a different red than my usual method which works well on my line troops and vehicles but I felt this needed something more? it is an ancient and venerable machine from the hallowed artisans of Mars after all


what did I do? well I believe I've nailed a good representation of automotive candy red not perfect but for using brushes and mainly GW paint I think it's great! I primed with my usual Dragon Red an then washed with Agrax, then I used a slightly watered gold and with a watercolor brush I painted over the reds in long strokes so it was even coverage. Once dry I washed with crimson and Bloodletter glazes and then with Minitaire ghost tint and darkened the recesses with Agrax again looks cool but hard to photo due to the light hitting the colour as it changes to gold but in one shot you can see it on Kiera's chest plate I also had fun with the base by the addition of a Mechanicus Magos saying prayers to appease the war machines spirit!

well, with my chest puffed out with pride I gladly would like to introduce you to 'Kiera Knightley' Bane of heretics across the galaxy!













v this pic on the chest plate is a glimpse of what the whole red armour looks like in the light





I really do like what i'm doing lately I just think my current stuff just looks cool! I really hope you guys like them too.

The red technique seems really, really original and looks great even on the pics other than "the one where you see the REAL red"

The priest is a nice addition too...
