Nice job on that tech priest, I'm always impressed when someone picks out all the details on those models, there's so much going on. Worth the effort though, it looks great. Liking the classic necron scheme on those immortals too

Cheers Maharg!

Productivity has taken a hit since starting back at work :( Szeras is coming along slowly though some how I missed the mould lines on his legs and they are so awful I may strip them and repaint :((

Great look, so far. Nice aged look for the metal. The blue plates are a nice bit of extra color.

Nice WIP, lots of different metal colors to differentiate the sections, makes the model look very rounded.

Nice use of pink gut cables to match the pink-purple blood-energy.

Cheers guys!

I decided to use some green stuff to cover the lines and roughed it up a bit too to give the metal a battered ancient look, think it turned out alright, few bits to finish but pretty much done

That blade is HAWT. Fabulous work. The space magic looks great, too.

Aye, it's fairly similar to a NMM green I see? It looks great! The vials/energy batteries on the energy hand are great as well.

Thanks! i watched a Vince Venturella youtube vid on blending the backside took about 2 hours and the front side (post youtube) took about 20 mins! I thought I might as well bung him in with the Immortals for the monthly challenge as a buff

For good or bad I've opted to paint daemon Mortarion for next months challenge, probably a bit too much for my rather short painting career but in for a penny in for a pound
Mortarion probably wont arrive till next week so I'm taking this time to practise some of the things I want to try out on him, NMM for one and a bit of airbrush shading.
Here is an early attempt of NMM gold on Haarken's trophy spikes, plenty more on his model to get better ... i hope.

NMM makes you appreciate metallics!!! really time consuming.

NMM is probably something I will never have the patience for Your first tries on the other hand look really good and I'm excited seeing you tackle Mortarion!

He's looking good. I like how in the earlier profile pic it looks like there are flames coming out of the jump pack.

I hadn't noticed that

Its nice when it starts coming together, there was a time I thought about sacking it off!

The NMM looks really good, I particularly like the effect on the turbines.

Thanks!

Its definitely getting easier and quicker I might do a brief pictured breakdown of the method i've evolved into.

Great work maxwin, the edge highlighting of the black armour is amazing and contrasts nicely with the gold.

Cheers Viterbi, hopefully get this cracked by tonight, still no Mortarion though so might need to start something else!

Thanks, I forget where I plagiarised that from now

Didn't quite get finished, some of the gold looks a bit like yellow plastic so will try to improve that.

Think I've made some progress reducing the plastic look, glazed with violet and highlighted with karak stone ...
