Seems like I was working on this model forever. Once I had decided my paint scheme I wanted to see it on a model and began painting this Chaos Terminator.
Once I had things base coated I knew I liked the scheme and left him that way for a while as I worked on models that ‘needed’ to get done. I finally got back around to him and I’m glad he’s finally done.
The shots are a bit dark. I’m still working out lighting for the light box I made. Really I just need an area I can leave it set up so I’m not dragging stuff around each time.
Overall I’m really happy with how he came out.
This model took a while too because really he was my test model for everything. I figured if I worked out all the details on this model then I’d have a template to work from going forward.
The power weapon took me three tries to get it to where I was happy with it. I had a hard time trying to determine a color that worked with the rest of the scheme.
The warband logo took me a few tries as well. Painting a crescent moon was a bit tricky to get the shape right. That and painting white over black is never really ideal.
The half paint scheme wasn’t too bad to do, but I tried various methods of shading on the greyish blue before I was happy with that.
I settled on just using Nuln Oil wash to get the shading, which ties the blue back over to the black side too.
Now I have it figured out the next ones should go a lot quicker. Looking forward to having the entire unit of Terminators all painted up.
