Default Inquisitor in Power Armour - UPDATE - 2 -

Hey all,
This is my W.I.P Inquisitor I am entering my local GW comp with. I am currently working on the shoulder pads. More highlights are needed, cleaning up the gold, and more highlighting is required.
- Without Black Lining and gold trim



- With Black Lining and Gold Trim



* * * Gross, thse pics are bad...they make the black lining look huge and highlights are nearly invisable..

The model has a long ways to go, and all looks good thus far.

However, If I were painting the red, I would have done a coat of skull white over all of the armored areas, then began my coat of reds. It helps drive the red hue and it makes it stand out more. Try it on a spare unit, one section of armor, paint it white first, let it dry, then do the armor.

This will force the issue of black lining the edges, as your doing now with the black primer, but it will look far better, and it will stand out better visually.

Keep at it!

The pose looks kinda iffy to me. I guess he's jumping off the rock to plant the hammer on some unsuspecting xeno, but it looks like he's leaning over backwards and just stepping off the ledge.

(I'm really anal about poses, so yeah... It's the one thing I think I can do well, so I'm picky with other people's models.)

Other than that, it's looking good. Keep us posted as you go.

He's really thin...

Besides that, he looks good. A few more coats and he'll be good.

Hey
The reason I didn't use white was I thought I would keep the red dark, to enforce the sinister fell to Inquisitors, and I also associate royalty with dark red as opposed to lighter red.

"He's really thin"
Heya, whatcha mean by that

I am working on him today for a while, at the moment I am just straightening the lining and adding one more highlight to the armour.
I'll post again once the legs get close to being done.

Thanks for the tips.

Hey all,
I have done some more, including the legs, top of the Daemonhammer, and started the Storm Sheild, and the "Beach" base.
I thought I would do something different to the normal Cities of Death, it may not be as realistic but I think it's cool.
Close up on base:

- What do you guys think I should paint up the things the inquisitor is on as?
Storm Sheild W.I.P:

Daemonhammer head:

Legs:

What do you guys think so far?

I think what Black Mage means by calling him "thin" is that his waist is very elongated and very thin. The Blacklining and the red needs a bit of work, but besides that the model is shaping up. Maybe try straightening the model up a bit to get rid of that "falling over" look.

Also a few tips on how to improve the "beach" base is to add sand to the yellow part, because at the moment it looks like part of a caramel cake. also put a layer of PVA onto the water part as it looks a bit flat at the moment.

Just a few small adjustments and this model will start to look better.
