Thanks Brian. It helps a lot.

Theo', I'm sure your little one's are on the social medias, get them on the case.
And I'll let you know when I have an account on the "can phone" lines...

The mock-up was just to illustrate the colour combinations. I gave no thought to which quarters were which.
For the model, there's a few reasons;
1. This way round means I only need to re-do the white on one shoulder pad. The other way round would have meant I'd need to re-do a shoulder pad and a leg. Yeah, both shoulder pads were not as smooth as I wanted.
II. This way the orange arm and hand holding the flag, contrast with the white of the back of the flag.
c. I thought there was a third reason, but it slips my mind for now... Mostly the first reason.

Thanks.

Now tidied up the other elements with black.

The majority of that black will be covered.

That is all, just something to show while I reply.

Good enough reasons for me , just didn’t want him not to match the rest of the guys if you expand the force using your sample dudes.

The contrast is really great on the red and white.

Thanks Gits'.

Thanks Theo'. No plans for any more, he'll be sold as an individual. This is why I wanted a unique paint scheme, rather than catering to collectors of only one chapter. Looking at him IRL he will REALLY stand out on the gaming table.
and Orange, Theo', orange.

And now more together than he was, with added metallics.


Started with a brass basecoat for all the to-be-gold bits and decided that I quite liked a few bits in brass, so those remained brass (such as the shoulder pad trim and Primaris knee bits).
For the gold bits I added a little yellow to the gold to give it more colour so that it can compete with the orange and then highlighted with silver.

I've kept the gun black (Shock! Horror!) as the usual red really wouldn't work in this case. The black contrasts nicely with the lighter colours of the armour.

Next to do is the scroll bits and the green leaf-thing on the flag... wreath, that's what it's called.
And the lenses of his helmet and scope.

And now done.





I've left the centre of the banner empty (as well as the left shoulder pad) for the owner to add their own chapter symbol, if they wish.
"Clara" = "Bright" in latin,
"Vetus" = "Ancient" in latin.
Together they may not be grammatically correct, and I'd likely get a Centurion correcting me at sword-point for it, but to anyone not fluent in latin it's just flavour text... and an "in" joke for me.
The text turned out better than I expected, but the photos don't do it any favours.

He'll be up in my Etsy shop soon.
On to the next...

Thanks chaps. Good to see you "get me" with the Latin.
There's no hope of me getting the grammar right for Latin, I struggle (well, I would if I cared about getting it right) with English.

I just picked the translated words (from Google) that were short enough to fit on the banner comfortably. There was quite a selection for these and other words I tried.
And it needed 2 words due to the skull cutting the scroll in half; I'm sure you've all seen other versions along the lines of "ULTRAmaRINES"

Theophony wrote:...Looking fabulous, your giving Nerdfest a run for his money on beautiful quartered marine colors there, but I think he has you on speed.
I can't say I'd match Nerdy with any painting work. He just gets his blending contrasts so "right", mine are just sooooo "subtle".
And yes, there are glaciers that can evolve into sentient beings and take up painting, that are quicker than me. 12 hours and 18 minutes work on this one... spread over days and days.

Still, he's now up in the shop:
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/673245624/space-marine-intercessor-chapter-ancient
He's certainly had a lot more love than the previous model (Mr. plaguecaster) across the internet. We can hope that this translates to a sale sooner, rather than later...

In other news;
I'm considering opening a Ko-fi account. It's an online tip-jar thing.
Unlike Patreon, it doesn't work on a reward system. I keep doing what I'm doing and my followers can throw small amounts of money at me, in the form of "buying me a coffee", to help me plod along towards goals or just as a "cheer". No signing up for a monthly payment, just one-off tips.

I can't see it producing mounds of cash, but it may help give me with a slow trickle between the rare sales.

Still unsure if it's worth it as yet, but it doesn't cost me anything (except for login details for yet another website... *sigh*).

In other other news;
Once I'm done with the Dark Imperium models, I'm going to have a serious push to get a "real" job. What I have here has not advanced beyond paying for itself over the last 5 years, so it's time to grow up and "adult" more.
I won't be stopping the modelling, but it may slow down (even more than the slow creep at the moment) during and if the job search is successful.
But in the end, I will gain more freedom to do what I want (read; more crazy modelling).
Stating this out "loud" means I'm more likely to do it and not put it off until "tomorrow" as I have been.

Thanks for sticking around.

Thanks Graven'.
Some bits of growing up are necessary though; like becoming self-sufficient in the money department.

Where were we...?
Oh yeah, starting new things...

Bases for the Lt's and Captain.

Created with a combination of foamboard (to add lightness to the building up), plaster (to give realistic chips and cracks to the tiles), plasticard (diamond plate texture), and putty (to fill gaps).

The first Lt will be modified to be stepping up onto the higher level. His right leg is not glued on yet at the knee and it should be relatively easy to chop into the hip to lift the leg up.
The second Lt is just on a flat base and won't get any modifications to his legs, but arms are available to be modified. I carved that Imperial symbol into the plaster tile as the "simplest" way to produce that effect.
and the Captain (who is glued together and won't be changed) gets a raised base to give him some height over the others. His base gets some skull tiles in a section at the front (quick Plasticine mould with skulls pressed in and plaster poured in), just to give it an Imperial feel without needing to do another eagle.

The bases are primed just so I can actually see what's going on and what more needs to be done (they were mostly "WHITE").

Painting has started on Lordy, but not worth showing yet.

Onwards.

Thanks Theo'.

Turns out I quite like the pose on the middle Lt, so he'll be staying as-is too.
But the first Lt is now stepping up.

Quite a bit of careful cutting required, but not too difficult.
The left leg only needed the foot flattening out. Requires you to cut through the foot, under the ankle bumps and around the toe armour.
The right leg is already separated at the knee, but the foot angle also needs to be changed to bring the toe down. Similar method to the above.
The thigh needs cutting away from the body at the hip, follow along the armour plate and cut up under the helmet and pouch.

Then carefully glue it all back together at the right angles, testing by dry-fitting the parts.
I used a couple of pieces of plastic to solidify the larger gaps,
and then filled with putty.

Due to the stock pose being a lunge forward, the left (rear) foot is raised at the heel. This works nicely for the step up.



Just need to set his head and arm pose to match and these are ready for paint.

Should get on with painting the Lordy then shouldn't I...

Looks like it's time you got the saw out then... *insert maniacal laughter*

And now... with arms:


Just some tidying up of rough edges etc. and these are ready to go for painting.

On that note, painting;
Lordy's got his rust on:

Just some more black wash in places and some highlights (possibly with a pencil), then paint the rest...

Onwards...

Thanks Cam', and you can produce more in one day than I typically manage in a week, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Thanks Graven'. Partly inspired by some of your Nurgles or some talk on your thread at least. The rustiness will be broken up a bit with future additions.

Thanks Joe'. That'll be nice, my Twitter is fast catching up with my other outlets (all between 60 and 80).

No progress to show, but I have cleaned up the Lt on the step, and highlighted / varnished Lordy ready for the next stage.

And I noticed today that Lordy belly is hanging out and that area isn't armour.
He (or should we say She?) is effectively wearing an armoured bikini top...

Therefore, I've painted up the skin and guts, and I painted the brass areas and added verdigris.


Cloaks, tentacles, Nurglings, horns, smoke blood and goo to do...
At some point in there Lordy will actually be glued together too.

You could have left it armor colored as the story goes they’ve been in the armor for so long that it has melded with their body and distorted. Also a pregger belly on him since he gives birth to nurglings is kind of suiting.

Thanks CB.

Thanks Graven'. Well I wouldn't go so far as to call is a mankini, that's more of a Slaanesh thing.

Thanks Theo'. I might have done if I hadn't noticed that the top of the belly is pierced to the chest piece of armour with a ring.
It helps make him not all the same colour, even if that is hidden by the axe handle.

Thanks Gits'.

Today's progress is on the horns and the Nurglings (as I was already painting their horns...)
All give good contrast to Lordy's armour.


I just need to decide on a suitable colour for the cloak now...
Will avoid the brown / beige as that's too close to the horn,
I think desaturated will match the corroded theme, but too much and he'll continue to be the same tone all over,
The smoke will be a dark grey to green, so should avoid that so those stay distinct,
There's going to be quite a bit of bright red blood at the front, so should avoid red... or use red to balance the blood... maybe red inside the cloak,
Something to contrast with the orange rust, which is somewhere between green and blue, already avoiding green, and there's turquoise on the brass...

...that leaves blue...
Will have to try out some tones in "mspaint"

Found a blue,

Still have dirt, stains and goo to add so it won't look so "clean" in the end.
It also doesn't look quite so blue IRL. You'll have to trust me on that for now.

I also gave it a dark red interior so that there is some contrast where it's folded back or ripped.
