Currently waiting on some basing materials to arrive, before i build up some rubble from a smashed wall under the knights foot. I should point out that i am having to buy/acquire all tools and materials from scratch as i have not worked on any figures in about a decade ha ha.
I'm not in any rush to battle anyone and i don't think there is many people local doing it, so i just fancied making something special for myself something i could sink time and effort into.

A lot of what i am doing i'm having to research and learn from tutorials as i'm doing it, this is my current colour scheme:
Skeleton: leadbelcher, nuln oil wash and then necron compound drybrush.
Armor: leadbelcher, Nuln oil shading, ironbreaker layer, runefang highlight.
Shoulders/knees: skeleton horde, not sure about shade for that.
Trim: Caliban green, maybe thinned a bit so can try get some of the shine through, do have warpstone and moot for highlighting/layering.

Toying with a very faint kind of silvery/blue wash over the armor. Would have to be ever so subtle though.

Most of the basing/terrain stuff has been ordered or purchased now so just time lol.

Im going to replace the shoulder mounted missile launchers on the valiant with the cannon off the crusader,
and i wanted to make them a little more unique so i am going to use a couple of skitari i have laying around and have them manning them.
I just used one of the standard gun arms but had to bend it out a bit hence why he looks a bit peculiar but when hes attached it wont be so bad ha ha

Its a bit rough yet but this is how its looking at the moment, might get the gunmetal to more of a silver but i got the dark green in there and the bone and the grey/silver

i started on the shoulder pieces today, i wanted to see how my take on the steel confessor colours would go.
im happy with it although now i think about it it may end up looking too close to that one knight house because of the green.

Maybe switch out for a darker bone colour, dunno yet.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Also i used all GW paints.
Undercoated in Leadbelcher
Trim in Caliban Green, then washed in Nuln Oil and dry brushed in Warpstone Glow.
'Silver' side is Ironbreaker with Nuln Oil shade.
the not bone looking side >> Wraithbone, then shaded with seraphim sepia.
And then some Warpstone Glow edge highlights where it will join the Canopy.

Did a little bit more this afternoon, was a bit faster doing this bigger area now that im sure what im doing with the colours etc








Automatically Appended Next Post:
not sure im sold on the warpstone as a highlight for the caliban, but either way i'll try tidying it up a bit later without making more issues haha not the steadiest of hands. I will get rid of the layer of warpstone at the bottom edge of the canopy as i don't think its supposed to be there or at least it does'nt seem right

yeh ok so the rock was terrible, chopped up this pillar at an angle that will do nicely. Also the genestealers arrived




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ok, couple changes. Im going to switch out the balthazar gold for retributor armor it looks so much nicer on this.
And i tried edge highlighting the chainbreaker with white fang, i can tidy the white and green highlights a bit hopefully.





Automatically Appended Next Post:
Im really not that keen on the highlighting though, it doesnt look good at all if you cant do it super fine.

The rest of the materials i was waiting on arrived so i made a start on the base.


And i had another go at the canopy and i think i made it a bit better, removed some of the highlights entirely and thinned out some more, a few more touch ups needed but its getting there.

Glued the skeleton to the base etc yay
