Default Malus Darkblade Re-paint [PICTURE HEAVY]

Hey all, started repainting my namesake yesterday to look like he is on the novels and thought I'd post up piccies as I go along . Yeah, it is kinda a project log, but I figured it's so short it should just go in here rather than clog up the project logs board.

So here's Malus and his mount after I started a bit of painting with no intention of him looking as he does on the novels:




You can just about see some of the old paint scheme on those last two photos.



The cape, which needs to be repainted as I'll probably use the scheme for the cold one.



The cold one, which I can't help but love in the current scheme, but eh well. By the way the black armour plates were a new thing I started, they used to be a nice silver like Malus used to be, and it didn't stretch so far back, only to wear Malus would sit.



Malus's warpsword.

And this is how they'll hopefully look similar to after:



Progress pic's will hopefully follow , C&C are much welcome.

EDIT - Sorry for the big and blurry pic's :P.

Okey doke, well I've attempted to drybrush the whole thing with scab red, but it took longer than it should because after a few seconds of drybrushing the paint would go liquidy and bubble and go in the recesses :P the exact opposite of what I wanted it to do. The I mixed dwarf flesh with scab red (not sure of ratio) and attempted to drybrush over with that, but I only managed to do one side's scales because I ended up with the same problem again :P. Then I added more dwarf flesh into the mix and drybrushed the same again, with the same results again :P. So; the partly painted side: :P



Hmmm... looks very red from the photo, but that's just the camera me thinks as he's not that red in real life :P.

Oh yeah, I took your advice Monolith .

Ok, Decided the Dwarf Flesh wasn't working - too pinky, and after looking at the novel cover, I decided to mix in some Graveyard Earth. Now looking back I've decided to scrap that, doesn't work well. I figured I need a more browny colour. Need to sort that out... hmmm... Scales will be using dwarf flesh me thinks... the skin... hmmm... I'll try some stuff out...

EDIT - Hmmm... Dwarf Flash doesn't really work on the middle scales well at all, but then again I'll probably say they're metal... hmmm... I'll try out some other colours for the skin me thinks.... -after lunch that is .

Sorry to boost this to the top :P, but I just wanted to say that I haven't given up on this, I'm just not in the mood to paint at the moment, I'll probably do some more progress on the weekend though .
