1st up is the unit banner. Based on the skull icons GW puts on their 'Eavy Metal banners, I decided to do something similar. The 1st model I painted for this army has a yellow skull on his shield and I decided I would use that for the theme for the whole army. I thought yellow on red might look striking, so I hand drew it on to the banner with a pencil and 'ere we go:
|Base coated with Scab Red and Fiery Orange.|
|Mid coat of Mephiston Red and Blazing Yellow|
|3rd stage of Blood Red and Badmoon Yellow|
It just occurred to me that newer readers might be confused, as I have colors from all the ranges that Citadel color has ever made. Not a complete range mind you, but a lot. And the names have changed over the years. Anyway, I believe there are conversion charts online that one can seek out.
I finished the metal on the spears and knives. I think I achieved a good feel of what I was hoping for (see the 1st post in this series) with the rusty and well used metal blades.
|The metal on the spears is done!|
|Black ink wash on the black bits, and other details picked out|
...I just realized that I took those pics about 3 weeks apart and got them at the same angle! I haven't even touched that bottle of yellow ink back there!
Well, that's it for now, and if you recall the last pic of part 3 of this series, you'll be pleased to see that I haven't ignored these guys either:
|We're GREEN!!! Waaaagh!!|
