Default [WIP] Kasrkin With Plasma Gun 90% Completed!

Started on this miniature about a week ago for a competition on RelicNews Forums. So far, I think he is coming along nicely.

Here is the latest picture of the miniature and the progress so far.



Right now, it may look dark overall but I plan to add another lighter coat of brown on his clothes (or tunic or whatever that is called). The carapace armor will also feature some nice Cadian-style camo patterns on it just to add a little more interesting contrast to it.

Comments appreciated.

I likey! My favorite part is the red on his visor. Altough to make it better you could ink the metal or drybrush a tad of brown onto it.

The metal parts are not finalized yet. The entire miniature is still a work in progress, remember?

However, for the visor, I will be making improvements on it. I have been scouting around CoolMiniOrNot looking at how other painters do the visor for Kasrkin and I think I have done it wrongly. Will try my best to make it better.

I can't tell you how much better things look when they're highlighted

Looks good so far, but it's really hard to judge an unfinished model because you never know what the artist is planning to do

Exactly!!!! I will definitely do the usual highlighting and stuff but that is if I can find the bloody time to do it. Been so busy these past few days.

Erm...this might sound like a stupid question but why do you suggest applying brown ink or drybrushing it with brown? What effect will it have on the metal part?

For your info, my plan was to basecoat it with Boltgun Metal, then highlight with Chainmail and a final thin highlight of Mithril Silver over the Chainmail.

Drybrushing or inking the metal brown would give it a dirtier more used look, and if you were to apply chestnut ink, a more rusty look. black ink would make it darker.

EDIT: the only think I think should be done on the metal is make part of the muzzle on the plasma gun looked burned, so it doesnt have a "Never been used, fresh out the forgeworld" look to it.

I peronally think that your trying to do too much. If i where you id just do one or two layers of different shades of green, then add a nice crisp highlight. Finsih the rest of the model nice and easily and move on to the next one.
