WIP - Lucius (aka by the Almighty Emperor, painting!?)

It’s finally happening, Der H is painting something!

Today saw a flourish of progress from both Brother Handro and I - more on Brother Handro’s progress another time!

Lucius is more than just purple! 



An early wash saw me set me off slowly - needing to let washes dry has delayed many a project!



Other projects always need some paint too!



Not much in the way of WIP pictures - I often think models look much worse before they look better - but here we are with all colours blocked out, just waiting a few more details, highlights, and other finishing bits!


Stay tuned for the completion in the next week or so!!

WIP - Der H's Pledge - Lucius

What! There is actually an update...


It turns out that there is actually life in my basement yet....and my cat will certainly find it and try to kill it....

[Der H: "what am I doing again..."]

[Brother Handro: "Pledge. Pledge!"]

...that's right!

Lucius now has the base purple and the first shade. Just needs a final zenithal highlight after a wash and then I can start blocking out the other colours.

Given the corrupted look of his armour I am likely to go relatively simple on the colour scheme in terms of the brightness of the pinks. Perhaps some pearl/white panels and some silver/platinum sections to denote veteran status.....and obviously the skin chest plate!

I even managed to get some purple on my other big project...
