The Monstrous (spelt wrong?) Entry of Marcus

Post by Marcus » Thu Mar 19, 2009 10:52 am

My Tyranid Carnifex, from my current WIP army:

Yup, that's my entry.

Now, the blurb:

I got it from Ebay, I was looking for cheap tyranid deals, and I saw a battleforce that had a bid price of only...oh what was it, about 30 USD, so I placed a bid of 50 USD, and in the end I won it, for just 50 USD+6.99 shipping. It was shipped very fast, it got to my house in 2 days.

Anyway, I did some greenstuffing on the model and the base. The base has water made out of greenstuff, and I had it make a ripple effect where the carnifex steps on it, and the rocks are made out of cork board.

Painting process:

I primed the skin parts with Regal Blue, and the armour with Liche Purple.

Drybrushed Ultramarines Blue on the Regal Blue, and Warlock Purple over the Liche Purple.

After that, I drybrushed Enchanted Blue over the Ultramarines Blue, and Blazing Orange over the armour.

Then, I inked the whole model, minus the base, with blue ink which was mixed with an equal amount of water (4 drops to 4 drops). Then I painted the eyes, Dark angels green, followed by Scorpion Green, no inking.

The base was Regal Blue, followed by drybrush Enchanted Blue, followed By drybrush of Ice blue and finally spots of Skull white. Then I glossed the water.

The Rocks were primed in Chaos black, then drybrushed Codex Grey, then Fortress Grey and finally Skull White.
