So it took me a while to be able to present my next model. After the fiasko with the Ravenwing bikes (the Sergeant turned out better) I tried my hand with the Terminators. Gawds. Good start, but fethed em up (that is I consider them to be sub par).
WIth my last model, I really really wanted to do my masterpiece, and since it was my HQ
of choice, that effort was obligatory.
Somehow, while painting my termies, something.. clicked for a better lack of words.
This time, I went back to the basics and my main goal was: precision, precision, precision! No matter how many techniques I try to learn to highlight, doesn't help Gak if the basecoat already sucks.
Company Master Balthasar, the first Model I'm happy with (besides the feathers... I hereby now declare white my arch enemy! Painting white over a black primer.......)
Please excuse the photo quality... somehow my cat was very interested in blocking the light
What I intend to do now is to paint up a 2nd tactical squad to actually make my army legal... And then start over and bring every model up to this level.
Feel free to praise (oh, you...
) and critique. Keep in mind though that I'm only one month into this. I however don't currently know what I could have done substationally better (besides practice) at my level of skill.
Edit: And praises to MiniwargamerJ, that provided the tutorial I painted this one after!
