A small Update on these guys. I managed to paint in the base colours of the rest of the models. Now I can start using washes to create depth and shadow and finally paint the highlights.
Hopefully I will have time to take more pictures along the way, I just have so little time these days that stopping to take pictures is a difficult decision..lol

More work on my Dark Vengeance Box Set, this time the Dark Angels get some love. I started with a Grey Primer as that is all I have, followed by a coat of Dark Angels Green.
Lastly I washed the models with a generous wash of Coelia Greenshade just to blend the base and highlights better.

Well, I finally managed to finish these bad boys! In the beginning I hated painting these models because of the enormous amount of fine detail on them but towards the end I began to love them and the final product.
The paint job is a good table top standard and these models unfortunately don't look nearly as good in the photographs as they do in reality. My camera is starting to show its age and in these shots you can clearly see the difficulty it has in dealing with the variety of colours in one picture. You cant really see the different shades of paint e.g. red in the cloaks etc
Enough talking from me, enjoy the pictures!
I am so looking forward to tackling the Hellbrute now!!
Let me know what you think of The Reborn!

It's taking ages for me to finish these guys because so little time these days to paint stuff, so apologies if this is dragging on a bit.
You can see the progress on the cloaks and sword above and below.
Here are some pictures of the non armour details being done including the all important daemons.
Now you can start to get a good feel for what the finished article will look like. Next post will be the finished product, I promise.

I don't have as much time to work on these beautiful models as I would like but slowly is better than nothing. Above you can see I have started to paint in the layer colours to the details.
I decided that these bad boys will worship all the Chaos Gods so I mixed it all up as far as the daemons go. Some purples, blues and puke...is that a colour..lol
More building up the layers and some basic contrasting.

I started out with a grey primer, that and white is all I have, then followed with a thin base coat of black.
Next I painted an a layer of GW tin bitz.
Followed by my custom mix of brass and orange mix, see pot in picture.
Now a heavy wash of my verdigris mix.
Next a clean up of all areas that are not going to be brass.

This is the last of the hobby posts related to my Pre-Heresy Luna Wolf model. I wanted to push my greenstuff sculpting abilities and had a go at sculpting the shoulder pad icon from scratch.
Above is what the actual icon is.
I started by adding some greenstuff to the shoulder pad and working it into the crescent moon shape. Then let it dry completely.
Next I cut out the bottom where the wolf part of the icon overlaps the moon.
Then I added new greenstuff and carefully worked it into the wolf head shape, then added definition as I went along for the eyes and ears. I tried my best to keep the head small but that is the best I could manage.
It looks pretty rough but once painted up I think it came out pretty well. Of course I made a greenstuff press-mould of the pad so I could replicate is easily for any future models.
Never by scared of trying your hand at greenstuff, if it goes wrong just cut it off and start again.
