Anyway, following on from yesterday, I managed to get my second Blightlord finished, I wasn't far off finishing him yesterday but them rules are rules. It was only a few bits and then some minor details that I needed to polish off, and alas he is complete! I really like how the rust has come out on his weapons, i'm such a lazy painter and will try and find shortcuts wherever possible and GW I swear have catered to the likes of me when they released their first set of technical paints. Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust are possibly the 2 best paints ever be released, always comes out with a solid look.
I also had some spare time left to make a start on the squads champion, the detail on this guy, damn this is gonna be a time stealer. Alas I made a start on him, I wanted to do something special with the bug mutations on him, did a bit of Google searching for tips on painting iridescent beetle effect, most resulting in wet blending (which I suck at) or a finish that I didn't desire so I experimented on my own.
Now it's really almost impossible to see in the picture, or even on a video the effect that has come about, his belly is a shiny purple, executed with a layer of Runefang Steel, then a layer of Naggaroth Night mixed with a thinner, the topped off with a layer of Waywatcher Green. This has given it a purple shell with that tint of green you see on the body of a fly. So stoked on how this came out! Can't wait to carry on with this guy.
