Bronzeback40's POTW

Post by Bronzeback40 » Sat Dec 07, 2013 12:33 am

Hoorah!

I started my new job three weeks ago. Amongst other things, I now work less than 10 hours per day and even get days off! (What a concept, right?)

Part of my free time will include getting back into painting after a couple months off. Fist thing was to shake up my paint pots to get the pigments re-mixed and trying it out.

I know I'm technically 24 hours early, but my goal for 12-14-2013 is to get the following finished:
Cryx Seether jack
random Reaper bones model I picked up (Could be used as a Chaos Lord for Fantasy if I still played)

Updates to come

Well, good news and bad news.

Bad news: Got sidetracked by personal issues for much of the week. Reaper Bones mini not finished.

The GOOD NEWS:

My favorite helljack is ready for tabletop beatdowning.

For my next trick, I will be doing a special assembly mini-conversion of Master Necrotech Mortenebra and Derilyss. This conversion will likely take a week, so POTW for the week of 12/22 will become COTW. Will post pics of finished assembly next Saturday night.

Thank you. If I could figure out a way to get rid of the spottiness from sealing, I'd be even happier.

I'm overall happy with the shading and highlighting on the purples. It's a step beyond my previous attempts with the color; all the highlights ended up too pink for my tastes. With this, i think I got the right amount of highlight without losing the tone. I was really happy with the shading; again, I didn't really lose too much of the basic tone. As much grief as reds and whites get, I think purple is a really difficult color to paint due to the need to maintain tone.

Of course, my whole Cryx force is in purple, so i'll get a lot of practice. The large, smooth areas were a real test, but while I normally do folded robes well, it presented a real problem with (classic) Asphyxious; I'll post pics when I get the chance to pull my Cryx from my locker at the game shop. (Yes, our game shop is That. Damn. Cool.)

The approximate recipe is (PP paints and Citadel washes/shades)
Coal Black + beaten Purple
Beaten Purple
Wash with Drakenhof Nightshade
Beaten Purple + Sanguine Base
Beaten Purple + Sanguine Base + little touches of Frostbite to final highlight (three mixes)
Glaze with thinned Druchii Violet

If i had a chance to do it again, I might have cut out the third highlight, or at least covered less area than I did with it. I'll try to apply that to my next jack for the army.
