Daemon Prince #2 - WIP #4

Thor’s Workbench: Daemon Prince #2 (WIP #4)

I’m so very close to being done with this Daemon Prince. I’d say he’s 98% complete at this stage. Everything is base coated, shaded and highlighted. Really I’m just picking out the last few details and doing some finishing touches. To the left is where I left off with him before some painting last night.

On to the pictures.

I decided to try something different with the sword. I have been using a technique on power weapons that looks good, but I wasn’t 100% happy with and it’s been bugging me. However, I didn’t want to go back and redo power weapons, some for a third time. With such a big weapon, and one I haven’t already committed a technique to, I figured it was my chance to experiment and I really like the result.

It’s brighter than my previous techniques, and ultimately I think that’s what makes the big difference. It adds a nice contrast to the dark tones of the model. The darker power weapon method, though cool, just wasn’t cutting it.

Now, as time permits, I’ll need to redo a few previously painted power weapons for consistency.

Update: The Daemon Prince is all painted – check him out!

I’m going to say “Holy bright swords Batman!” in hopes that it is just overpowering in these pics. I will be interested to see it in person tom’w night. From a distance it looks good(small thumbnail) but when I zoom in it draws all my attention to the sword.


I agree with JustHippie that the sword pulls a lot of focus. It sounds like that was your intent so job well done! The rest of the model also looks very good. I think the overall effect is “what the hell is that giant thing…and what the hell is that thing it’s swinging at me!”

Barbie called; she wants her sword back.
Would be interested to see some better detail pics of the OSL effect, if you have them. I never managed to pull that one off, myself.

Looks awesome! I like the color contrast between the red flesh and the blue-highlighted armor. and really like the level of detail!
