Irvin's Adventure In Painting

10 posts in this topic

As most people know, I normally commission all my stuff that needs painting. Recently, however I have been spending way too much money on commissions. So I decided I would try and pick up the brush again. I will post pictures of my finished models. Please let me know what you think, and how I could improve! 

First up is a Khorne Herald on foot or now known as Bloodmaster. This model comes with a Khorne Daemon prince from forgeworld. His big brother the Daemon Prince will be started next week, since @MisterAG is hooking me up with some sweet wings for him. 

With out further a do may I present my take on a Bloodmaster.

This model was pretty fun to paint, normally Kevin does all my Airbrush base coating, but this time I tried my self. I practiced some basic blending with the airbrush and the regular brushed when I messed up and put paint where it shouldn't of been. Another thing I struggle with is flesh tones, for the poor soul that this guy firmly has in his grasp, I feel it turned out ok.

@stankywizard @TwinnerK and I are going to the Barrie Bash on February 24th & 25th, I need to paint the following for then: 

1x Flying Khorne Daemon Prince w/ axe

3x Flying Nurgle Daemon Prince w/ talon 

15x Khorne Dogs (using fantasy Chaos Warhounds, 2 per 50mm base) so actually 30 models. 

Wish me luck! I am going to need it.

I REALLY like the "skin" of the daemon; the dark reds are wonderful. However, I feel like the metals on the head and shoulders are very off-style, and so are striking me in the wrong way. I think you should do a darker gold on all the metal pieces, and then highlight the "trim" with silver or something. Neat idea, love the work so far, and good luck!

I think that the gold might look better in a brighter picture. I like the pop of colour on the base and sword, so I hope that some white light will magically fix the gold too.

Finished this guy a few days ago. Pretty happy with him, I will darken the metals later, let me know what you think. I am currently about 60% done three nurgle princes.
