+1 for the Reapers looking good. Easy vote for me because I love Reapers.

Photobooth seems to be doing the trick, too. Small victories rule.

I have varnished and finished basing the rangers and the reapers plus eldrad. Added finishing touches on te reapers and am very happy that the varnishing dulled the shine on the glossy cannons. Much prefer this look!

All went well apart from eldrad got reaaaalllyyy frosty
I think its because I went bit heavy with the spray? Im using tamiya acrylic varnish. Now Im really wondering about varnishing my wave serpent because its colour shifted...

Anyhow here are some pics.

Work starting on the Winged Autarch conversion...
Trying to figure out the coours still. I like simple contrasty scgemes but at the same time want the wings to be cool.

Unfortunately Im not willing to spend £16 just to get the current winged autarch head as I cant find it on any bit stores...I subbed in a dire avenger because I have one kicking about.

Thought id update.

Finished painting the Autarch pretty much. Have to do a bit of clean-up and basing but more or less finished.
Really like how the helmet plume has worked out and the fade/blend on the greaves. Not sure if you can see it in the pic so will update once its all complete.

However, feel like the overall paintjob is very gak... . I did experiment with some techniques and colours so that was useful for some exp. Also used a new wet palette I got off amazon but think I need a set of new brushes because it was hard to get a good point/flow for the detail.. I really like orange/red/yellow schemes and blends that I see people do but I'm light years away from that level of goodness. The visarch armor has some cool design. Green-stuffing the flames on was a crazy punt and I think it looks cool and very 40k so im going to keep it.

Question is. What color should the wings be?? The colours are already quite busy on this mini so really not sure how to approach the wings.

With the exception of the inside of the cape and the yellow, the model is fairly dark. Going lighter with the wings could make for a nice frame.

Hmmm Interesting. I actualy thought he looks really bright and colourful. Too colorful for my liking. I will get the ol lighbox out and snap a shot later because it could just be the photos.

I had an idea of having the wings in similiar style to the fur shoulder piece. But I think it will look too similar and the two will clash.

The vistarch is finished. Quite happy with the overall finish in the end despite all the earlier grumbling. Now thats hes done it looks pretty cool. The wings blend came out well.
Let me know what you dont like, and how I can improve me bros!
