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.
Things are rumbling along!
