Let's get on with the show shall we;
|Here he be, with with his oversized cigarette lighter.|
|Took ages to figure out how to do the glowing effect, I think it |
turned out ok, but Christ it was a bastard to get right!!
|You can see it a lot better here....as well as the beginnings of a casting |
flaw on the yellow feed line.
|I used my usual basing method, but just added some battlefield |
debris i.e. painted up plastic sprue bits.
Overall I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. The armour colour scheme was supposed to be some sort of desert camo effect, but I think it looks ok. The skin tone was a time consuming part of this painting job. I've really only ever painted a couple of orcs in my time -and they were nothing to write home about- so I copied the recipe off of Thantsants blog. I must admit that I deviated quite a bit from his method, as I was starting from a black undercoat, but it did get me most of the way there.
The glowing effect had me stumped for a long time, must have painted that area about five times I reckon. Plasma glow is a lot easier for some reason..... maybe because we have no real world knowledge of the colour of plasma, as we do with fire?
Lastly, thought I'd ask the question, does anyone know of an easy way to removed casting marks from corrugated tubing? It's a real bugger!
Bye bye :)
