A bit of Chaos wippery .......

GW 40k Chaos Warlord in Terminator armour. Hes about 1/3rd done I guess, painted all in GW acrylics and inks.

Ultimately planning to base him on a viginette base with a retinue. Thinking about using rare-earth magnets in their feet to be able to place them back onto standard gaming bases as required .........

cheers
Brent


Base colours










Shading started ...........

Great work... I don't usually do WH stuff, but I did buy couple of figures cause I love the poses and the equipment. I know those figures are small and I know how patient one has to be to do the job well. You did a wonderful job and I especially love the shading of the cape, great!

Beautiful work - nice subtle transitions and the face work is top notch.

knowing what these figs are like... great work.

Really like what you have done on the shading and the face, considering how small it is.

Hope to see more

**p.s. How did you take the pics, and edit them.. would like to get the same result myself??**

Beautifully done facial expressions. I would probably need a really high power magnifying glass to even come close even if I had some of skills required. The cape has a nice gradation of shades and the metalwork is fantastic.

Hi Guys,

Thnx for the comments. Its a pretty emjoyable/easy fig to paint, not too bad considering its injection molded plastic! Anyway been doing little bits n pieces on it so should have a few more pics in a couple of days. In the meantime heres a Chaos Space Marine std bearer finished when I started this fig ............

cheers
Brent

Hi mate,

Actually my camera set-up is pretty basic (see attached pic). I usually edit my pics using Corel Photopaint but did this on the spare PC using a freeware downloaded program - Photocsape. I've attached a link. Its not too bad really, the sharpening isnt as progressive as Photopaint but its ok for web - pics.

Thanks Brent

As they say "one pic is worth a thousand words" That is all I need. Had a look at the link as well ta!

My preference is to the bigger stuff actually, but great work on the figs, they really look good.
