Dysartes is dissapoint? :(

@Vit, I must crush my enemies and hear the lamentations of their women. Via tiny toy soldier painting. Therefore the competition is meaningless to me unless I can make your woman lament and junk

Also, I blame Dysartes for my critique on your base for being too colourful. After he made the wizard of oz reference, I can't help but think about rainbows and ponies on that base now.

A little bit of grainy progress, I prefer to keep it fuzzy intentionally at this point, for a bit more oomph on final reveal, as I am considering bringing this along to Adepticon... so consider it just a little teaser of progress -

Nice...did you have to scrap that BA icon on the shield off the forgeworld doors? Looks very nice so far though a bit grainy
My OCD compels me to note that the scroll with the name on the shield is upsidedown. The side folds should flow up like the one on the chest. Anyway, be sure to post finished pics soon for those of us not going to Adepticon.

Not scrape so much as insta mold lol... I would buy if they had icons like that available, but spending 20 bucks to attempt to cut it off with no guarantee of success is too rich for my blood.

For the record, the shield scroll is the right way up, spells indominus or something like that, my OCD wouldn't let me put it on upside down

I promise, you will get full lighting, non grainy photos when it is done! Still quite a bit to do though, not everyone is a productivity beast like you Eggsie!

Your blog is always a kick in the pants to get moving lol

While the photo quality make the red and gold hard to tell on the contemptor, the eyes shine through marvelously. Combined with the posing and all, they're really quite mesmerizing.

He's looking really menacing. As Prime mentioned, the grainyness is actually making the glowing eyes stand out even more.

I thought it was perfectly appropriate, although Gits, I would have been extra impressed if you photoshopped X in there

Ya they are, to all intents and purposes, termi sized...

Will try to take proper pics with an actual camera tonight, I would like some feedback on the scheme to far, and it's a shame to waste all that effort that went into blending with grainy pics lol

I just love lurking your threads MT, but just had to chime in and agree with you about the massive voodoo website. Those guys are all awesome, and the priming technique is one of the easiest - yet greatly impactful technique out there. Keep it up, I will watch this as I watched your SH thread with great interest and enthusiasm.

Great stuff as always Major! Really looking forward to seeing the "reveal" photos when the time is right

Does it become tiresome that everything you touch turns to gold?!

So, I managed to squeeze out a half day today, made quite a bit of progress, would say it is about 90% complete... still some touch ups and details to add in. Took proper photos too, and learned that gold is a tough color to shoot! It looks quite flat in the photos when really there is a lot of depth and color variation in it... It ends up looking as if a lot of it is just natural shadow on a uniform gold color though, when IRL it isn't at all - oh well -

I put a couple of shots doubled with and without a diffuser, you can see a little bit how it behaves differently -

















Thanks for looking!
