First mini of the new year.

A start, at least. After a year of painting only commissions and not finishing any figures for myself (I did start a couple projects but they got abandoned) I really intend on finishing this one. The past few years I have seen a decline in my desire to paint non-commission figures. Maybe this is the start of something bigger. Who knows, I may hit up the Golden Demons again. ;)

The first thing that you may notice on this guy is the undercoat. Normally I go with chaos black spray, but I figured I'd try something different. This is white primer along with a wash of Badab Black. Its sort of like the best of both worlds.

I am trying some more of those fabric textures again. I have promised a tutorial of this stuff in the past, and I do need to get around to finishing that too. Too many projects, too little time.

I gave the white fabric some purple shading. I figured that grey or brown shading would clash too much with the cloak or armor.

NMM steel recipe: Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, Menoth White Highlight, Morrow White, shading with a mix of Adeptus Battlegrey+Regal Blue, and shading with Chaos Black.


  1. awesome man! im hoping for a tutorial haha

  2. That's really beautiful, I'd love to see some tutorials by you. I'm trying to learn how to properly blend colors and you just make it look so effortless.

  3. Have a look at this article I wrote a while back. It describes my blending process a little bit. I plan on transferring the article over here at some point and expanding on it in the near future.

    Tutorials coming soon :)

  4. Thanks so much for that article! I'm definitely going to read that and keep an eye out for more tuts!
