I've been diligently working on my Possessed Vindicator (dozer blade is pictured above) over the last couple of weeks and, having finally purchased Halo 4, completed that last weekend, as well. I love the Halo universe, those games never disappoint, and #4 provided a much needed break from my Vindi work. But, while playing #4 I realized that I was only one primed model, some touch-up work for other models, and some basing work for still different models away from a completely painted Chaos Space Marine/Imperial Guard army.
So, I lowered the priority of the Vindi and decided to finish up the little jobs that keep me from having a snazzy army on the table.
I've been using this WHFB Chaos Sorcerer for my IG Primaris Psyker. It's been primed in black for about 4 months now and last night I banged out the painting and basing in about 2 hours. He's pretty much all dry brush shades of grey with some brass and silver here and there.
I tried to go for a ghostly look, which I think I achieved, but he's quite a few shades lighter in color than the rest of my IG models. I think I'll have to darken him up somehow... prolly just deepen the shades in the recessed parts. Or lighten the rest of the IG, which will be a bit more work but will probably look better.
I also learned a new feature on my camera! The Exposure Compensation keeps the photos from getting washed out in bright lights. I set mine to about -1.3 when using my two sunlight-type 100W lights and everything has started coming out muuuuch better photographically.
Now that the Primaris is finally painted, I have to base my Heldrake, put a Loyalist in my Warlords' blender, and finish weathering my Plasmacutioners.
