Today I tried making progress on these two Warlocks but I ran into the problem of not being able to paint skin very well... I tried to use a wash to blend the colors together but it made the model too dark. I don't have any of the GW glazes that will work either... I think I am going to fire up the airbrush tomorrow and try my hand at painting detail with the airbrush... I have seen a lot of tutorials with people painting the skin and basing the clothing with brown using their airbrushes. Just thought I had enough skill to give it a go with a brush...

I broke out the airbrush today... This is the first time trying to blend skin on something this small. It was very challenging and still a little "washed" together but overall it looks much better than before!

It has been a while since I have updated my blog here. I have been busy shadowing a Physician Assistant for my medical school application... I attached some progress pics with a link to the finished models. I am working putting together a small 200pt 40K kill team to paint and play with. I will post up some pics of them soon.


Here is the link to the finished models: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/576168.page#6478926

Enjoy!

So I started a small kill team army! I played a few games last week and have really been taken by the game. Each model moving on its own and acting on its own is very liberating and fun versus having to maintain unit coherency the whole game... At any rate, I have come across some CSM that I had laying around and decided to give them the angry treatment. Since there are only 10 it is nice to take a little more time on each one, but not too much as I have many other projects waiting. This seems to be a breeze after painting the Orange Legion 60+ SM army that I completed a month or so ago... Now that I have some experience with the Vallejo Liquid Metals, I am looking forward to incorporating them into this project.

Great work on the Warlocks. Trollbloods are some of my favourite models to paint.

Thanks! I really like the Trollbloods for both their rules in the game and their models. It's always nice when you can paint models that look great AND play great on the table top.

Today I worked on the armor trim. I started with a base coat brown and then gave it the Vallejo liquid metal range treatment. I have been very impressed with these paints so far! I will give them a light acrylic wash to dull down the armor trim before doing an oil wash... Overall, I am just really enjoying painting these guys up. Not sure if I will have them done by Friday so I can use them in a kill team game... I do know that I am really diggin' the heavy bolter guy with relentless! Not to mention the plasma gunner with PE! More to come!

Forgot a few... this has a light silver on the gold to make it look worn... It may still be too blingy for the otherwise damaged armor....

I made a lot of head way today. I decided to finally try my hand at doing some source lighting on eyes... It is very tricky as the stuff I used tends to gum up my airbrush. Overall, I think they are coming along nicely... I applied the gloss coat and will work on the oil wash tomorrow. I am hoping to have them done to play some games next weekend for a buddy's going away.

I do think that my object source lighting is looking better than in my earlier project...

And now back to the trolls... I am starting this Mauler. I am really wanting to perfect my painting before I tackle the earthborn troll and Mulg. This mauler may be my last model for a while before I have to pack everything up to move back to the States. If there is anyone that views my thread from SC, shoot me a PM! I would love to meet up with some local gaming groups there.

Check out the finished CSM here:

I have already gotten a couple games in with them and the Champion has been able to anoint his power sword with loyalist blood!

With what I learned from the bomber that I completed previously, I used a couple different pastels to achieve a unique looking color variation. It is still not quite as subtle as I had hoped. I can't help but think that a dark blue would work perfect for this same effect. Overall, I am wanting to make him look flushed and angry (as if he didn't already look angry! ). I then hit him up with some matte varnish to lock the pigments in place before moving on... The matte varnish seems to settle the pigments' colors down a little...

Here are some work in progress pics of this mauler... I must say that the biggest lesson I have learned from this model is filling gaps... It is coming along and is a really nice model, but sadly it is somewhat ruined by the unfilled joint on his back. I managed to fill in the back very well but seem to have overlooked the front This is one of my first PP models that I had assembled so I am giving myself a break on the worksmanship.

So far things are mainly base coated and I will go through and do some highlights next.

I finally finished this Mauler. You can view him here:

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/582693.page#6592536

I will have to take a break for a while as I am due to move back to the US for work. Once I get set up in South Carolina, I will start posting again. While I do not claim to be a professional, I hope people have enjoyed and learned (what not to do ) from my stuff so far.
