Managed to get my target for the week done - basecoat the armour. Process started with a zenithal highlight using vallejo model air chrome. This is an absolutely lush colour. Would very much recommend it. Used the air brush for this step - something new for me except for test models for the project. Previously I said I'd been prepping for this project for about a year. Most of that was saving up for the airbrush and compressor and trying to figure out what to do with it! I reckon I've a fair amount to learn still but I'm getting there.
Before the highlight though I used silly putty to block out any faces. Don't want too much paint on the faces with the risk it could affect detail. Again, first time using it but it seemed to have worked a treat. There's a lot of negativity about Stormcast masks but I'm a fan and I've not many bare heads. Plus, I suck at painting faces!
Next up was Akhelian Green Contrast, shot through the airbrush at 2:1 with contrast medium (medium:Akhelian). Love this colour, especially over metallics. Thought this bit would be a doddle... 3 hours later I was almost in tears! Glad the airbrush is going away now until further down the line!
Anywho, hope you enjoy the pics.
