Helbrute: Paint in Progress #4-1

Helbrute: Painting #4 – On to the Details

I had a few days to do nothing but paint and so I took advantage of that. After having a set back when working on the tentacles (long story), I finally started making a push and getting things wrapped up. At this point all sorts of things are in all sorts of stages, so I won’t try to explain where I am with this model; I’m not sure I know any more. I do know it’s damn close to done though so here’s some shots.

Pardon some of the lousy shots here. I plan on getting a new light for painting, which will make these WIP/PIP shots look better, but I haven’t ordered it yet.

I’m pretty happy with this model. I won’t say it’s my best work, because it’s not, but I have learned more on this model in the weeks working on it than I’ve learned in the past few years. Even though there’s a few things on this model that bug me, some mistakes and things not exactly as planned (some times you just have to accept and move on), I think the end result is shaping up nicely.

Comments and suggestions always welcomed.

Cool. Lookng forward to seeing it finished :)


Been enjoying the progress on this guy. Constantly getting better! If you are getting worn down on him, consider taking a break (work on another model for a bit) then revisit him!


The armor plate on the fist is great looking. The scratch damage is awesome. The red skin is a little flat looking, possibly the lighting issue you mentioned? I like the darker red skin tone base coupled with the armor coloring though.
