Escalation League Grey Knights

Post  dusktiger on Sun Dec 20, 2015 2:23 am

so i decided to use this league's escalation ruleset to finally get around to painting up the Grey Knights i got from gingerballs.  Therefore, my goal for the army is to only use the models that i got from him, until i run out of those to hit the point caps at each stage.  The other goal is to keep the list basically the same from one stage to the next, with exception to non-visible wargear choices on characters.  That way the collection as-is gets completed, rather than extra models being purchased simply to gain an advantage for the rules.  With that said, i will have to make 2 small purchases later on during the league, but they're minor and will look good in the display case at home along with the other stuff.

So here's what i'm going to be working on for this project, from one stage to the next.  new units in each stage are highlighted blue:

===================================================================================================================
 
so that carries me through with the models i have currently, with me just having to purchase a Callidus Assassin, and another box of interceptors.  I think that i can
manage to paint these all up in time for each stage, especially since im taking the 750pt period to paint the 1000pt models as i can't field anything in the list except for the interceptors with the no 2+ save rule in effect.  I'm gonna try to post pictures of each unit in here as i get them finished.

jumping the gun a bit here on my painting order, but i got this as my xmas gift, so what the hell.  Callidus Assassin.  here's the start, with an initial highlight of incubi darkness:





and here''s the 2nd stage of highlights with sotek green, and the leather straps are khorne red.



i had a hell of a time gluing her together, and some of the annoying spots that wouldn't just line up and set nicely show it, even with the paint started.  They molded the two legs separately with a butt cheek to each leg, and the waist is just her crotch area and the belt.  Nothing. Lines. Up. Smoothly.  it's alot of soft rounded curves on the joins and thus the parts just wont sit together nicely.  And im fairly certain too much glue made it into the join where her needles attach to her thigh, which the metal paint highlights in the photos.  luckily, this is one of those really rare Almost-True-scale models GW makes, so the blemishes and whatnot are not as noticeable in person.

did the hair on the assassin today.  here's what i did:

First i basecoated with Mephiston Red, followed by a soft drybrush layer of Ryza Rust:


The next step on the hair was doing a drybrush of Lugganath Orange. This was done softer than the Ryza Rust because this is an edging paint and it's incredibly bright. This way it only added extreme highlighting to the edges of the braiding.




Lastly, to bring the hair back to a bloody red colour instead of ginger, I put a thin layer of Bloodletter Red glaze.




Here's a further away shot to get an idea how it will look on the table.  camera kept blurring the edges slightly cause i didnt have a perfect black background for the pic:

yea, i'm rather pleased with how it turned out.  i liked the ginger look before the glaze too, so if i do any other minis with hair, i may have to come back to this and do it again.
