    Well then , i finally managed to give the Old blood from the carnossaur some love ,and wanted to share the progress so far with you guys.

    would love to see your opinions , im loving how its turning out some washes probably were still drying when i took the photos ,

    still has some more work to do , i'm considering darkening the top most scales a bit but leave the skin where there is no scales as is.

    So far from what i got done.. im loving the blade and quite happy with the glove aswell , i wanted to give a lit up feel on the inside of the hand, think its reaching that point , highlights will help it aswell i think.

    Without much more chitchatting here is he,

    Really fantastic work on that weapon. I realized looking at your excellent painted version that the blade piece would look great in a necron or even an iron hand conversion.

    I like him! I think you're right to highlight the inside of his extended gauntlet hand. And I think it'd be a good idea to use the same color scheme as you did on your throne, on his armor, with the blue background.

    I love this weapon and how it turned out , i did only a little change to it.. but i think it benefited a bit lol i added a bit of yellow glaze to the recesses in it and i really like the result its subtle but enough to be there.

    I think it would look amazing in necrons even thou i don't play 40k eheh


    I really like the idea that the hand is "lit" up and there's some sort of power comming out of it , i wanted both weapons to look almost enchanted , ence the color changes on them, about the armor... i see where u are going but i wanted him to not look part of the seat so i did something else , i've given a little bit of blue wash on the recesses of the armor just to darken it up a bit to contrast with the highlight.


    And yes.. i think i can say , he's complete now.. i was just going to do some more washes and some highlights but ended up getting it preety much 99% complete , only think im missing now is painting the reins and then glue the whole piece together and make the preety looking tuft base for him :D

    For now i will leave some pictures of him , (sorry light quality isnt the best!)

    Wow... very nice work. That base is amazing!!! You should do a tutorial on how to create such wonderful bases.

    Good! I like the contrasting blue on oldbloods throne with the gold. What colours did you use? I haven’t painted mine yet!

    Very nice, I love the base but I think you could do with adding another spot colour on the Carny, maybe on the spine tips a extreme highlight.

    A small niggle but he does look great ;)

    Thank you all for the comments on the model and the base,

    About the highlights i see where you trying to get but i kinda like the more subtle highlights on the scales i might go back to it later.


    Its been some busy days lately and i have started messing with greenstuff in the meanwhile.

    I had an old fel bat metalic model that had lost part of the body and the head.. and i was doing an experiment with green stuff and had a bit left, so i decided to mess with that model.. well... to this day i still laugh everytime i look at the end result...

    Meet BOGRE!

    IMG_20180630_220937.jpg


    Well , that was something!

    I have also found an old saurus that had a broken leg... so... i kinda went and cut both legs and i ended up creating a saurus djin!
    36774223_10156427312463744_4128461975258660864_n.png

    But... i couldnt leave the poor thing like that.. so the saurus djin asked for a wish... to ascend to a greater beast ! To be a protector of my army's slaan, to be ... An ETERNITY WARDEN!

    Amd his wish started to turn real!

    First his arms grew stronger!

    IMG_20180708_145020.jpg

    Then his legs!
    IMG_20180708_155421.jpg

    And then an explosion of starlight took place, a mist of star fragments took over the sky and out of it... he had ascended!
    Siting glourious and proud at the top of a rock wielding his new weapon!

    Have a great time and as allways, comments are apreciated!
