In the next few days, I want to give some insight in what I have been working on. Today I'll show you the piece I am working on at this moment. This is the Chaos Lord from the Warhammer 40,000 Dark Vengeance starter set.
Despite all you can say about GW, I am still amazed by the level of detail these snap-fit models have. It is truely a joy to paint.
These pics have been taken with my phone. Soon enough I'll show some better pics.
I have been keeping the color palette somewhat equal to the way it was painted on the box. I really enjoy the cold-warm contrast in this.
I wanted to experiment with texture on the cloak. It's pretty tough to do the stippling and keep a form or reality, not have it look too much like mere dots.
Still need to do work on the plasma gun (damn, I find that gun ugly. I should have chopped that one off, and replace it with a cooler gun, or maybe even replace the entire hand!), and I have already made a start on the display base.
Thanks for IKEA table legs ^^
To all Dutch and Belgian painters following this blog: who's going to the Fang Competition? Wanna have a meet-up?
