You Can Tell I’m Somebody Important…

…by the cut of my vestments, son.

Here’s some work on the robes & paper stuff. I glazed the robes with VMC Dark Sea Blue to desaturate it and differentiate it from the armor, then I did some exaggerated texture on the raised edges.

The ancient devotional manuscript on his backpack reads:

IF YOU CAN READ THIS,

IN THE NAME OF THE EMPEROR,

YOU’RE TOO CLOSE

Back in Blue

My brother-in-law Will is pushing to move up to 200 point Kill Team Commander games. I shouldn’t have much difficulty reaching that level, especially if I add my half-completed librarian to the force.

It’s always hard to capture the look of inks in pictures, but here’s the ivory sections on the armor done. I cover all trace of the Nuln Oil with which most of the mini is washed before applying warm brown & cream colors and washing/glazing with warm brown/yellow/red inks.

I like the exaggerated contrast you can achieve while still taking advantage of a quicker and less technical technique like washing.

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.
