iyanden army project

Post  dusktiger on Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:36 pm

started working on my wraith army, and here's the process i took:

i decided on a metallic blue looking body, with glossy black accents and guns, followed by purple soul stones.

i start off with a primer of A.P. Gun Metal.

then i do a thin wash of Drakenhof Nightshade.


allowing that to fully dry, the next step is a coat of Guilliman Blue glaze.


next was adding the head and loincloth, and painting them, the shoulderpads, and glyph stone black:


then i went and picked out the gem stones i wanted colored with black:


then i painted the bottoms of the gems with vallejo violet, and put a spot of white in the top corners.  a clearcoat of tamiya clear:


the glyph stone was then painted with vallejo liquid gold:


here it is on the base design i decided to go with:


here he is with all his decals and marking done, along with the spiritseer for the army:

very different.  they're not like any paint i've used before.  if i had to compare them, its like a cross between testors enamel, and tamiya acrylic.  use it sparingly on your brush, as you'll need to clean it every so often to keep it from gunking up.  which it does faster than any citadel paint.  the trade off though is the metal paint actually makes what you paint 'look' metal.  i've been using 'old gold' for 40k type gold.  debating buying one of the silvers to give it a try for some weapon barrels.  you do pay almost double per bottle, but then, they are a 35ml bottle instead of the 12ml size citadel comes in.

here's my process for the bases:

Step 1: make the base!


step 2: primer black


step 3: drybrush a neutral grey. try to go only one direction on the blocks to make it look like poured concrete

step 4: lightly drybrush white over all the course edges. add more streaks to the big stuff, going the same direction as before.
