Maybe I'll do some subtle NMM on the red of some of his armor plates. They aren't going to be parade polished, but they are metal, I guess. Is ceramite reflective? Is this armor even ceramite?
There is so much of the lore and background I don't know. I need to spend some time with other players, playing, fighting, talking, and just generally nerding out. Covid is making getting into this game difficult.


Too each their own! I think ceramite is usually matte but can be painted to whichever standard the chapter chooses. Do as thou will shall be the whole of thy law.

Well said, buddy. Good brush control on getting the eyes in.


Thanks, Don. I'm pretty proud of the eyes. And the little lenses on his ear piece. Check the updated picture below.

Thank you.

Thank you, DalekCheese. Welcome to the blog.


Updates:
I've spent a lot of time working the blending on individual armor segments. I don't want to do all of this and then just slap some gold on the wings and filigree. So, NMM is back on the menu!

Looking for opportunities to provide minute details where I can. Tried for some lense effects on the tiny light indicators on his ear piece, for example.

DJJazzyJeff,

I echo Rybrook in that each model you paint is an improvement on the last.

Cheers,

Nice progress, looking good! And another reminder, that I'm way too lazy for NMM and will probably never try it

Thank you both. Practice makes progress. Been doing a lot of studying, watching tutorials, and browsing Dakka for inspiration.

That's how I felt after seeing every tutorial out there. But it actually wasn't that bad. This blog about it was the best I've read:
http://surfacefragments.blogspot.com/2012/10/how-old-masters-created-look-of-gold-in.html

More pictures to come soon. I'm hoping to finish this captain this weekend. I have some more details done, but the pictures are a little underwhelming.

Still need to finish his sword, and I’m going to freehand some insignia on his shoulder. But, pretty nearly there.

Thanks. I had a heck of a time sticking his head into the armor hole. I put gs on the seems inside where the body and cape joined at the neck. Then it was tough to get his head in without getting super glue everywhere.

Viterbi wrote:Nice work on the eyes, very clean. Good luck with the pupils!


The pupils are actually done, you just can't see them in the picture. I don't have an actual camera . . .

My son was going to come by and bring his, but 20 year olds aren't that reliable when they commit to silly little things for their parents. Shocker!

A quick update and then I have to glue everything down and splatter it all with blood before I take some final photos for the competition.

A Chaos Marine of the Death Guard persuasion, sufficiently hacked to pieces.





Nothing too special on his missing arm.


With rank insignia finished and power sword crackling, here is the Captain looking the business.



Plenty of carnage surrounds him.



All for the glory of the God-Emperor!


Stay tuned as I splatter and drip blood everywhere!
I'm a little nervouse about ruining everything, but here goes . . .

Here is the finished competition piece.

Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood.

Great work, DJ! I like the freehand on the shoulder pad a lot, and the NMM sheen on his aquilla is great. The scene is also very cool; an inspirational victory!

Thank you, Syro. The blood was a pretty fun part to do.

Thank you. The NMM was not as tough as I was expecting and I really liked the way it turned out, too.

Thank you. I was channeling Ghost Rider when I did the freehand work. The skull with the standard Imperial halo didn't seem like it was going to cut it, and I definitely wasn't slapping a transfer on it at that point.

Going to paint up the rest of my space marines here, and put together some terrain. I'd love to get a game in some time in the near future.

Happy painting, all.

Jeff

Struggling.

So many little fiddly bits. More, it's the irl problems got me down.

Magnetized the weapons options on the cockpit turrets.

Got the new Space Marine Codex on Pre-Order, so I'll make a decision then. Want to be able to keep my options open.

Got all the pieces of my Redemptor cleaned up and assembled. I need to figure out the base. I want its one leg up on something, so I'll have to get the angle right before I glue it all together. And I have to find a better solution to magnet his big gun. Might have to get or make another shoulder assembly and just swap out the whole arm.
