WIP: WORD BEARERS PRAETOR

WIP: WORD BEARERS PRAETOR



Hi

Today's update is my new Praetor for my Word Bearers.

The base model is the new Forge World Event only 30k Terminator, I have used a gal vorbak arm as a replacement for the Combi weapon and the right arm's hammer has been replaced a daemon possessed sword from the Chaos range. I am away in Cornwall next week so I think I will take this along with me to paint in case there is any rain.

Dry bush very lightly with white

Ink with Reikland Flesh wash

Spot Ink wash with Agrax Earthshade

Light dry brush with Screaming Skull

Gloss varnish

Base

Hay Presto done

What you think?

GALLERY: GORE GRUNTA

GALLERY: GORE GRUNTA





Hi,

Today's post is some gallery shots of the completed Gore Grunta

Unfortunately it did not place and get a pin at the recent Age of Sigmar open day, but I am ok with that.

It was a good learning experience and I had fun painting the model. Some aspects I am very happy with but others are average at best. 

My fav part of the model is the Gore grunta face and the metal armour., but I think I need a lot more practice with greens and the blue armour.

I am going to step back to my 30k for a while and complete some almost finished units

Whats on your painting table?

Catch on the flip side

WIP: GORE GRUNTA part 5




So the blue armour is now complete along with the straps

I have added a red spot light armour to the right vambrace and the hanging metal scraps. I am not sure on the highlight on the blue armour. So I might revisit this once the skin and straps are complete

Two more nights left painting so the clock is ticking.

Catch you on the flipside.

WIP: GORE GRUNTAS PART 3

WIP: GORE GRUNTAS PART 3



Tonight's progress was getting the armour layered on and then placing 2 layers of Nuln Oil to darken before raising highlights. 

Highlighted the beards with Karak Stone and then darkened down again with Agrax Earthshade. The skin has been base coated with Bugman's Glow and then shaded again with Agrax Earthshade.

Next step is to start highlighting the skin and armour before working on the rider. It is going to be tight and I see some late night painting session to have it finished for the open day.

In with the General's Handbook was also the new Ironjaw Mega Boss.

I carefully assembled him over this lunch time and then thought about adding the Gore Armoured Head as a make shift shield.



I am going to tack it on for now to see if I like it. or if having 2 large heads over clutters the model.

What do you guys think?
