Gold Hood Ornament

This fancy fellow is moving along. A little. Most of the evening was taken up with Top Chef and family.

I haven’t re-applied metallics after washes in grey (at the bottom) and purple, but I think it’s getting a nice sheen.

This is exactly the kind of Golden Age of Comics look I didn’t want! I’ll have to make his face extra grumpy. Maybe pose some hapless nurgling at his feet or something.

Annointed with the Oil of Nuln

Major colors are basecoated (just green, blue, and red), and metallics are blocked out with Oily Steel & hit with a quick highlight of Aluminum. Pretty sure those are both VMC.

Now he’s had his first bath in Blanchitsu-approved Nuln Oil, which helps darken him down from his previous cheery clown suit, as well as unify the overall look of the model.

I typically dislike things like bright blue capes and big gold chains, but I’m going to try to keep him as grim looking as I can to fit in with the look of the unit.

Learned in the Lore… of the Dewey Decimal System…

I couldn’t quite decide on a project (there a couple in the early stages), so I started slapping some colors onto this librarian. I sort of dislike the color blue, but I’m going whole hog as 40k canon demands.

I’m pleased with the conversion, though I could have taken more time sculpting the robes to hide the seems between the arms (both from Tempestus Scions) and the marine librarian body.
