Amazing! Thats all I have to say!
It is quite a shame that you couldn't finish up the details on the model as you planed though...

Not much into Fantasy Warhammer but that is outstanding. That would be a wonderful center piece in any Tomb Kings army.

I'm glad you all like.

@Tehbarry - Yeah. The GW manager's boss is coming in for a visit on Friday. He wanted to make sure the Sphinx was there in case he asked for it. I hope to get a little more time with it in the future.

@Alpharius - Well that model kind of gave me a real painting bug. I've been brewing over painting another TK army since I sold my old one and these new models are so damn cool.

I think I'll start a new PM Blog featuring the TKs.

Give me a few days and I'll have a new concept/pictures.

Thank you.

I've been a background lurker in Dakka for years and finally made an account recently. I really love the modeling community here. (Your Blood Angels are a true inspiration).

Expect to see me often.

Soul of Iron wrote:@Foxtale – I ‘primed’ the model in a Krylon spray paint ‘Satin – Almond’. I sprayed it right over the grey plastic. With practice this stuff goes on fine like a power coat. I’ve grown quite fond of that stuff. After it dried, I drybrushed the body in skull white then washed it in GW Sepia. The drybrushing phase allows me to see the high points after the sepia dries. The white comes from using Vallejo MC Ivory (918) watered down to a milk-like consistency applied with a GW Large Brush. In fact I don’t paint with anything smaller then that size anymore.

@Alpharius – Thanks bro!
Here’s my color palette:
  • Body – Almond spray, white DB, VMC Ivory (918)

  • Armor – VGC Bright Bronze, Tamiya Clear Orange (X-26), GW Sepia, Vallejo Air Gold (71066)

  • Turquoise – GW Hawk Turquoise, GW Asurmen Blue, GW Skull White

  • Base – Black Prime, VMC German Grey (70995), VMC Sea Grey (70870), GW Skull White

  • The armor takes time because I have to wait till the 1st wash (Tamiya) is dried before I can move onto the 2nd. I highlight the edges with VA Gold mixed with Bronze then pure VA Gold.
    I don’t know if you’ve ever used the Air series from Vallejo line but they are simply amazing. Best metallics on the market. The orange metals are a too ‘sliver’ for my liking, but that can be worked around.

    Before I found this, I was going to just do white and greys, but I love the warm colors so much more.

    Backdraft005 - I sent you a PM. Blue and white would look a little bleached to me.

    ~Small Update~

    I'll be taking this mini and another to Blob's Park for the painting comp (if there still is one).

    I've gotten quite a few pings on how I did the sandstone skin and I plan on creating a tutorial showing my process. I even have damn cool mini to do it on.

    Keep an eye out.
