I’ve been posting some progress shots of the Land Raider on social media, so I figured I’d consolidate them here for posterity.
The Last of the Gods
I did some work on the Nurgle pustule-thing on the door, and the Slaanesh claw on the lascannon sponson is done. So, all 4 Chaos God elements are painted now.
I was playing around with painting this and went backwards from my usual method. Typically I start dark and work up to a lighter color. I thought this method would create more of a separation from the fleshy area by starting light. What do you all think?
You can see it in more context in the other shots to follow.
Metal & Tentacles
Since those previous shots I’ve been working on the metal areas. At this stage I’m just base coating the metal to later be followed by washes, highlights, etc.
Also, you’ll notice I did the tentacles on the top. I decided to go with a flesh color for them. I like how they look with everything else. The tentacles are washed out a bit in these shots, but you get the idea.
Once all the metal is base coated, I’ll probably start washing it then pick out the last few details I’ve skipped over. I can then move on to highlights and battle damage, and maybe eventually get it done!
Update: The Beast is done! You can check out the full Chaos Land Raider showcase.
