WIP: Dark Vengeance Chaplain
I used the Forge World Master Class glaze method to add a heat stressed metal look to the muzzle of the plasma pistol. I also just recently picked up Master Class Vol 2. It's amazing and I was surprised to see how much air brushing they do as well as how many non Citadel products they used to achieve their effects (Tamiya Clear Red is very prevalent in the book). Please ignore the cat hair and weird dust in the pictures above. The dust is actually left over from the creation of the OSL and a quick once over with my trusty Revlon makeup brush removed all that foreign matter and cat hair. A damp paint brush would work too if you are too shy to go buy a makeup brush.
***Actually, a good tip is to go over your minis before sealing them with a makeup brush or a damp paint brush to make sure you don't seal in any stray hairs or dust (Macro photography isn't all about the pictures, sometimes it can help you identify issues with your minis that you would have missed)***
That's as far as I got this week. Next week I hope to have most of the body done and be onto assembly and sealing, but it is the holiday season...Rest assured though I'll have something for you to look at even if I have to dig into my archive of previously painted mins - which is always fun anyways :)
Now a little community announcement: Ron over at FTW is taking a little hiatus from blogging. He was one of the bloggers who really inspired me to start this blog so I just wanted to thank him and wish him well. Hopeful he'll have some time to troll our blogs while he is battling his blogging burnout. So let's give him something to look at and inspire him with our hobby projects for a while, like he has done for us all these years!
Merry Christmas to you all and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :p
