Black Crusade 2012: Sorcerer Part 3

I finished the paint job on this a few days ago but have been procrastinating over posting it. I have come to realise that with having painted much the last year or so that my painting skills seem to have diminished a bit. I found myself at a bit of a loss regarding the black and white areas of the model. I didn’t want to highlight the black too much or shade the white too much either. I’d probably rate it a 6 out of 10 as it is, and I think if I’d gone with a none black and white scheme I could have done more with it. There’s a lesson there I’m sure :)

I’m rather pleased with how the disc turned out and tried to give it a bit of an arcane techy look with the paint job.

The whole model is pinned together and happens to be well balanced so I don’t see it as likely to fall over in a game, it can even stand on a reasonable gradient without problems.

Did I need to make this a Truescale model?

No.

But it’s what I do.

I think it looks better for it, and because he’s floating above other models the actual size difference isn’t really too obvious.

I just hope the finish piece helps with the raising of money for the Charity Project.

    Everyone is always too harsh on their own work man. The paint job alone I’d give a solid 8. Yeah there are a few harsh parts on the model but the majority of it is very well done, the base being exceptional. I actually like the solid bright white on the helmet, it stands out and the contrast is very cool. The black is okay, mixed with all the gold around it, it actually doesn’t look bad at all. The absolute coolness of this entire model would no doubt take it to a 9 in my eyes. This is a very cool model and I’d love it in my collection as I’m sure many others following this site would. The only thing I’m not 100% sure about is the colour of the robes and cape ect… Can’t pinpoint it, just something missing… But otherwise, I’d say a solid 9 and a job well done man. Good work.

    On another note… What did you do for painting the gold? Did you do layers or is that just the shine off the metallic? I have so much trouble figuring out how to get good layers on gold… It’s always baffled me…

    DAYUM!!! A DEFINET 9 FROM ME (i never give 10’s, because everything can be better) But from a good painter (according to most people at my local hobby club) a 9 is difficult. 

    You sir, are awesome :)
    Look forward to seeing your future work!
