This is another part of the same commission I've just finished and photoed. Take a gander:

That sword is quite remarkable.

That's a Scibor torso isn't it? The flamer looks like a kitbash. can't see the legs well enough to see if they are GW or something else, and that sword looks really neat, and the painting on it is stunning.

hi, could you talk a little bit about how you did up the yellow?

the torso and shoulder pad on the sword arm are both scibor (I had to cut down the shoulder pad mid-way through painting it...really sucked matching the colour, but weathering helped cover that up some)
the sword is emperor's champion sword on a terminator arm from the dark angels sprue
the legs are forge world MK II armour (you may see more of that around sometime soon... all I'm gunna say about that)
and the flamer is comprised of traditional flamer nozzle, guitar wire, lacsannon 'scope', and flamer canister.

as for the yellow, I used P3 paints (Umbral Umber for shades and weathering, Idrian Flesh for the darkest colour (outside of crevices that the first paint would be inhabiting), and Cygnus Yellow as my base colour, working it up to Skull White).
I'll be making a tutorial on some terminators from the same commission soon, so I'll keep y'all in the loop about that. any more questions, just fire away (i'll be afk for this weekend tho, but don't worry; I'll be back)

2 words. Bad butt.

Sorry for the profanity, but I absolutely love his pose and the painting on it is really good. Nice work :P

I find it hilarious we discuss games about mass slaughter and combat but we can't say butt

I find it hilarious that it got changed to the word butt. Sounds like I was trying to be inappropriate or something.

Dilemma on the forums. It's family friendly, but butts have nothing to do with warhammer what so ever and slaughter does. You'd have to be 13+ anyway to play with WH (officially).

@Gorgon:
looks fantastic! Just bigger pics would be really appreciated next time. I always make mine 800x600 each. So the mini is pretty large on your screen so it leaves more options for people to leave feedback.
As for the rest: it sparkles. I must say, that IMO you overdid the yellow a bit. To much of that tone (yellow got powered by the red blade and orange hair too). The only thing that actually breaks it down a bit is the black. I like the sword a lot, still trying to master that technique myself. Maybe you could blend it more into eachother.
Other than that; very nice centerpiece in an army, fantastic.
Smile!
