Default Lord Solar Macharius

I just got this guy yesterday from bitz order, and I painted him up. Well, her you go:





I painted him using the new washes, so those wishing for an example, here you have it. The pics aren't the greatest though, and this is not the best example of the washs' potential. It was the flesh and metal bits I used the washes on.

Metal looks great, but we can't see the face!

There's not much to see, and I can't do any better. My camera isn't that great, even on the micro-pic thing. All it is is the highlights are blended together, looks more smooth that just straight highlighting.

I love the cloak.

And such a treat to see this godlike model given the attention it deserves. Well done, I love it.

Is he blind? I mean he is carrying a white stick.

Cape fails i'm afraid. To paint whites you don't need to start with such a dark shade, start with like a white+sw grey mix and highlight up by blending white into it. Then shade the recesses with sw grey, then mix some shadow grey into it.

From what I can see you've done shadow grey, then space wolf then white. You'd have had to wet blend those to pull that off.

He is a white cape I painted with the above technique I mentioned.

Yeah, the cape is a bit... well... exagerated. It is a codex grey start, then fortress, and then the white. I am still trying to get the hang of this technique, and I'll probably come back later when I'm better at it. Thanks for the tips Gareth.

Love the model!

The base is very nice too! I can never for the life of me make my bases look that natural!

New washes mate. Just Bestial Brown, Delvan mud wash, and bleached bone drybrush.

Forgive me if my fluff is wrong, but isn't his cape supposed to be bright crimson?
That said, 'tis a nice model.
