The scarabs look cool, the stippling looks to have had too much paint on the brush? Isn’t it meant to be nearly dry brush levels?

Yeah I think that was the issue. I tried doing it with a drybrush, but all my drybrush brushes are too thick and would make a mess elsewhere on the model, and I don't want to ruin my nicer, finer brushes by stabbing them into the model like that! I think next time I'll use the drybrushes anyways, and just accept that I'll have more cleaning up to do afterwards.

Not much progress to report, just a cleaned up the metal and threw a wash on. Not really noticeable tbh.

Great work on the Nighthaunt from the previous page, they look great assembled as a procession! Digging the scarabs too, they're looking good.

Thanks Tyranid! Great thing about Scarabs is they're really quick to paint!

Spoiler:


I had so much fun painting the glow on these little guys, but MUCH less fun doing the base. I had to carve off the glued-on scarabs (wasn't me, the guy I bought them off of glued them on) to get to the base below them!

Next Project!

My sole, lonely, Ossiarch that I picked up when they were new to see if I liked them. Certainly fun to paint!

This is the bone, eyes, and glow done! Flesh has been done with Contrast but not highlighted or cleaned up yet. Not sure yet about the black bone protrusions on the black scythe handle.

Good job on the scarabs, the OSL is very neatly done on them. Bone reaper chap is shaping up nicely. Not following the black bone protrusions? Do you mean the handles? If so they look good in black, matching the shaft

Yeah, the handles. Something about them just still isn't sitting right with me.

Thanks! It has a lot of promise, I have some /ideas/.

Of course, as this is a Death mini, got to keep my flesh cloth going! So here's the finished flesh, and base coat and wash on the armour. I am torn (ahahah) as to whether to add blood effects to the flesh this time. Thoughts?

The OBR is coming along nicely, they have some cool characters in their line-up.

Thanks Viterbi! They're really fun to paint too, the details make washes and contrast very effective.

Armour plates done! I really love this blue I got going here. Metallics base coated and washes. Decided that the handles should be gold, because otherwise there simply wasn't enough gold for a blue-and-gold scheme to work on a character model.

Thanks! I'm really happy I got the scratches nice.

I finished the metallics, but the scythe is looking way too rusty. I'm gonna have to go back to that.

Next, the GHOST! Which I've laid down the black-to-white transition that goes under the purple.

Easy update. Purple smoke magic effect. I decided that when there's a particularly prominent ghost face, it'll get the same bone that I use for my Nighthaunts' faces.

Thanks Clouds! I was worried that both blue and purple would be too busy, especially with all the warm yellows and oranges that dominate the rest of the model, but I think they're both close enough to just being "cool" that it works!

Thanks graven! I'm still not quite happy with the blade, it's nice but it's not what I envisioned. Gonna change it when I do my basing.

Captain Brown wrote:Looking good Gwyn.

Thanks CB!

Last item (before I change the scythe blade) on the model itself, the little soul canisters! Spent a lot of time on them bringing them up through various shades of purple, all the way from a 50/50 Abaddon Black/Naggaroth Night through to pure Pallid Wych Flesh highlight. Pay special attention to the gem on his belt, I'm especially proud of that one!

Next is to fix the scythe blade, and do the base! I've decided no blood effects on him, to set him aside from the blood horror Nighthaunts. The Ossiarchs are a bit more refined, and they CLEAN their skin-cloth!

Not quite, though their bone is really easy to paint, and I did REALLY enjoy doing the blue armour. But I think if I pick up another Death army it's far more likely to be the new Soulblight.
