Wraith-Tek

Post  Planes on Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:37 pm

While still part of my core army's painting style, I do believe this model has become more Green Stuff than Bits. I present to you my Harbinger of Eternity, Keeper of the Wraiths.

Pre-paint Green Stuff:



Post painting:





I used a light dusting of Reaper Faded Purple and a coat of Shining Gold on the Chronometron to show off the "time magics". The out reached arm is one of the two right arms that comes in every Cryptek blister. The head, torso, and "tail" are all from the Warriors that come with the Ghost Ark. Thankfully, some of the Warrior bodies that come with the Ghost Ark are missing an arm, so I found one that was missing the right arm, snipped off the shoulder, and glued the Cryptek arm in, giving the appearance of one arm stretched out to mess with the fabric of space and time, and the othe held close to the chest, holding tight to it's Timesplinter Cloak. Once I started getting some green stuff in there, it was easy enough to use the "repair spine" as a Wraith style tail in place of legs.

I like what doing experimenting and practicing with green stuff and paint.. But the pure pure white is hurting a bit.with white.. You really need to start with a darker base.. And work up to a pure white highlight..

Without and wash or shading in the recesses.. It comes off really bizarre.. you can almoat get away with it on vehicles.. Bit definitwly not with a cloak. If you slap a wash of any colour into the recesses and then build back up to the white.. Youd really like it and its super simple

I could try doing a wash of either Asurmen Blue or Baal Red, but I have found that the pot of Ceramite White I have loaths being used in any way other than pure. I've never been able to figure out how to thin it down, as it gets "chunky" on me when it gets wet, for a lack of better term.

IIRC, check the line. I believe there is a almost pure white "layer" color that SHOULD have less pigment, and therefore not be so "chunky" when you thin it down.

In that case, I should be able to snag that after my Play-off match on Thursday. This guy will simply be fielded as-is for that match.

Checked, I believe the color is White Scar.
