Cloak is a bit bright, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Nice work on the tank.

The Farseer is looking really good - I can see the improvement on blending the cloak from one photo to the next. Like has been said, even greater contrast wouldn't hurt, but it's looking nice enough already I'd be worried about making a mess of things by trying to change it too much.

Youwashock: Cheers! Ask and ye shall receive! I've darkened recesses and added some blending.

Ezki: Thanks, I've put a good few hours into this Seer so it's good to see the work is paying off. Don't know how possible the paint more than I buy will do, I'm already tempted!

Nev: The green is rather bright, I guess it's the consequence of my stark highlight for the rest of my army.

Bellerophon: We'll see about goal no.1, hopefully I can stay true to my goal!

Cap. Brown: Thanks a lot!

Hey all,

Another small update, I've not really been painting much other than the farseer, going over and back between blends and touching things up here and there. Happy to say now though that I think it's finished. I've darkened some of the recesses and lightened other areas. Bit of a learning curve but I think I'm more confident now than when I started with my wet palette and making blends on the go. Let me know what you all think!









I've also been messing around with a support platform guardian, as I have a few more guardians to paint and I'd like to get a confirmed scheme for my infantry. I have a squad of Biel Tan guardians I did years ago and another squad is black with green helmets so I'm unsure which direction to go with future guardians as black isn't the dominant colour any more. Let me know what you think of this one too, I think I prefer this scheme more than the black and green guardians, albeit more time consuming! I also have just seen that there's a smear of ushabti bone on the nicely painted helmet, much to my chagrin!




Thanks for looking,

TH

Oh, yeah. That's the ticket. Nice finish, man. I completely overlooked the base before. It is very cool.

The Farseer turned out really well!
The time spent on that was worth it.

I also like the guardian. The really bright corners on the armor panels make it stand out.

Really liking this blog, full of lovely little touches and some wonderful painting.

Excellent work on the farseer. That cloak turned out very well.

The one thing about that guardian scheme is I was asking myself where his chainsword and mandiblaster were. Very scorpian vibe. Might be unavoidable with the pallete you are working with. But he looks great.

There is, FWIW, a very clear progression in the paintjobs applied to your minis over the course of this thread.

The Farseer is a literal work of art.

The Farseer's cloak has come out really well, I can tell that a lot of time has gone into that green. The robe he wears under the cloak looks like it hasn't had as many layers/blends by comparison - the highlight seems a bit extreme and abrupt. It's hard to tell whether it's the paint or the photo, but I think that would benefit from a bit more blending/more transitions? On the whole though, good job!

I like the guardian scheme too. Using a lighter shade of the same colour for the helmet isn't something I've seen often and I think it works well.

The green on that Farseer looks as if he is actually stood outside in the sunshine.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.
