I love the blue/teal color of on your TechPriest's robes. It's a very nice color.

I like the combination of blues.

Maybe a coat of gloss varnish on the blood vile up top to give a glass appearance?

Thanks guys!

@Nappen: I did apply gloss varnish to create the illusion of glass on other minis before, but I actually would have forgotten to do so in this case. After I finish the mini and have applied a dull varnish I will add some gloss varnish to these parts. Thanks for the reminder, I somehow really wouldn't have come up with it this time! :o

Hey guys!

Being the "tabletop guy" at my department, a collegue asked me if I could build a little scenerie for his son's marriage to put money on as a gift to help financing their honeymoon on Mauritius. I came up with that:

I'm still not giving up hope to finish it this week! If not, I will most definitly finish it on monday, as I took a day off from work after attending the comic con in Stuttgart this weekend!

The tech priest looks really cool. Great painting scheme and execution!
Has anyone ever considered creating a beach holiday table? I mean there must be a place the Imperial officers go to in order to relax. :wink: I can already see my Orks having fun at the beach. :)

Thank you guys! I finally finished my Tech Priest Dominus and started meddling with weathering powders for the first time. I think it came out quite okay. Perhaps I will add a bit more powder before varnishing the mini, to build up the dust a bit ,,thicker".
I believe I overdid it a bit with the brightest highlight, should have applied it a bit less and smaller.
Had to sign up on imgur in order post these pics, as photobucket decided to be a hassle... well, it's been so before, so no big loss there, except for all the dead links in my older posts, which I'm most likely not going to replace.
