    A few days later than expected but my Chaos Space Marines Sorcerer named Warforce is now complete.

    Painting Thoughts

    For those who haven’t been following along, the arms are magnetized as well as the backpack, which counts-as a jump pack.

    Overall I’m really happy with how he came out, especially considering what this model started off like. This was a Finecast model I got 1.5 years ago. It sat in the blister pack until a few months ago and I quickly realized what rough shape it was in. That’s what prompted the head swap, sword arm swap and the backpack, though that backpack was a normal one and not winged but I won’t be using it at all.

    As I mentioned in a previous update, I’m really happy with how his robes came out. I was skeptical, as I usually am until I start shading and highlighting things. All that white against the rest of the model was glaring but once I got the wash on there and layered it up I realized it was the right choice. I also wanted him to stand out a bit on the field and the robes help do that.

    Also to that end is the sword. I’m working out different power weapon technique and like how this approach works. It’s also not the purple/pink I normally do and that’s because I wanted his force weapon to be unique. In the short stories I was doing I mentioned his eye lenses light up a bright green, so I ran with that there and continued it on the sword. I think it works.

    Anyway, another HQ model down. I’ve been pushing to get more HQs painted up because I hate finding myself trying to make lists for events that need fully painted HQs and having too few choices.

    He looks great, but the glow from the three eyes bleed together too much. It looks like his helmet is glowing from the point between them. I think it would help if you darkened it a bit under the third eye, or if you brightened the eyes themselves, to reinforce that the eyes are the light source.

    Other than that he’s spot on!

    I think a thin black line in the fold under the third eye would be enough to separate the three. The light coming out wouldn’t really wrap around surfaces so there should be a recess there that isn’t quite reached. If you carefully brush a black ink or wash into that fold you should be able to pick it out without darkening the rest of the effect.

    It is going to need a damned thin line, just enough to create a little separation. It may be tough to pull off but I have faith in your skills!

    Looks great, man! Your stuff seems to be getting better and better :)

    Are those wings from the Reaper line? I have a bunch of them in blisters, but haven’t had occasion to use them yet.

    A good glow effect is pretty dang annoying to achieve, not to knock it but I think this one just dominates the model. It may be technically correct but I think it just needs more contrast or something is ya know missing.

    Model still looks great though. I hope I get a chance to get down there and throw down in a week or two. (And I promise I will post something soon, new baby and work have been crazy).
