Nice painting Drake, hope you will show us more WIP pictures ! How do you make this worn metal effect? I'm not really good at that...><
Purity seal the model then add blotches of burnt umber oil paint, then flood with white spirits and drag down. Easier than GW glazing and washes too!
looking good so far ... i would be scared to paint him fully assembled.
Yeah I was not sure to or not. In the end I did because I had good access from all angles.
once i have money to order mine and have it in hand that will be what i check for as well ... i am just accustomed to the smaller scale where some stuff is hard to access but still visible once assembled ... maybe they took that into consideration when designing him as well tho.
Would also love to know the scheme you're using for Perturabo, it looks amazing so far!
IRON WARRIORS COLOUR SCHEME1. AIRBRUSH WITH THINNED LEAD BELCHER/ IRON BREAKER (50/50 MIX)2. AIRBRUSH FROM TOP OF MODEL WITH THINNED RUNFANG STEEL3. APPLY A COAT OF PURITY SEAL4. WASH WITH THINNED AGGRAX EARTHSHADE5. DOT RANDOM SPOTS OF BURNT UMBER OIL PAINT OVER THE MODEL AND THEN FLOOD THE MODEL WITH DOWNWARD STROKES OF PURE WHITE SPIRIT, SO THAT THE OIL PAINT ALMOST COMPLETELY RUNS OFF THE MODEL, BUT STILL TINTS IT AND STAYS IN THE CREVICES.6. YELLOW CHEVRONS – PAINT WITH AVERLAND SUNSET BASE, THEN OVER PAINT WITH YRIEL YELLOW. 7. HIGHLIGHT WITH FLASHGIT YELLOW.8. GLAZE WITH CASANDORA YELLOW AND THEN WHEN THIS IS DRY WASH WITH AGRAX EARTHSHADE9. APPLY BURNT UMBER OIL PAINT IN SAME WAY AS PART 5 ABOVE.You ever used white spirits and oil paints before?It's the official FW scheme. You can replace 1) with the new Iron hands steel from FW. Exactly same colour. If you follow pre-heresy iron warriors link on left you will see how I did it for my infantry. Gold will be Vallejo old gold. Awesome stuff.
Never used the white spirits this way, I take note! ;^)Vallejo is wonderful, their cobalt blue is the perfect colour I was looking for to paint my Ultramarines.
Oh dear...didn't want to hear this! I have spent £70 on various blues and I have finally settled!! Do you have pictures?
You have all my compassion Khall, I tried EVERYTHING I had and nothing satisfied me, that was kind of a miracle... :^[I did just one test with a Terminator - I received my paint 2 days ago - but I'll send you some pictures by Gmail if you are interested in.
Bro, he looks ace! I cant wait to kick his ass!
Looks really nice mate. Eagerly await the finished product!Not gonna lie, Perturabo is amazing. Seriously considering a second 30k army just to use him.
I love the Iron Warriors. They are such a trudge on army. They have a great easy scheme too. What is your first?
Sons of Horus! I feel like Iron Warriors would play differently, and Perturabo is a gorgeous model...it's very hard to resist, especially when I see WIP's like this that show off how great a sculpt it is
I've been tempted by Iron Warriors too, but I promised myself I wouldn't betrayed my Ultramarines.^^Sons of Horus... They have gorgeous models, but what a shame FW made the Justaerin so expensive rulewise! ><
Haha I've often moaned about the same thing mate. We can only hope that FW rebalance points when they redo the red books!
Just house rule that they have 2 wounds! It's an easy fix and other terminator units have it and are cheaper.
*side glance at the trololololing Firedrakes in the corner*Yeah that's what we do, playing a fluffy SoH first compagny would be a pain otherwise. (:^/
