I wanted to share a simple yet effective technique I stumbled across. This is a really good guide to doing chipped armour on tanks (or any armour for that matter) and it is really simple to!
It’s really worth checking out if you have ever wondered how it’s done. Here is a picture from the article to show the effect.
I couldn’t get in touch with Joel (AKA Hades) but it’s a great guide and I don’t think he will mind me sharing it.
Nearly finished this guy. Need to do his back pack and touch up a few things like the bone spikes etc. Also need to add “special effects”. Something I’ve never done before but have decided to give it a go on this guy.
Working away in the evening on another possessed marine. This one has entered a dark pact with a nurgle daemon!
Third possessed marine WIP. Really happy with the tone of the red on this guy. I don’t know the reason why, but whenever I take a break from painting my Word Bearers the formula for the red I like just slips my mind, it takes me a few practice models to get it right again. This never happens when I paint my Ultramarines!
Well, this guy is pretty much finished. I need to fix the bone spine on the backpack, it’s too yellow for my liking. Also need to add some blood to the joints of the armour, to show how his body is struggling against the mutations he is suffering!
Nearly finished this guy! Just hi backpack and a few things here and there to do.
It’s been quite a while since I have painted anything, and I’m feeling a little out of practice. Dissertation has come and gone, and I have found an hour or so at the end of every day of exam revision to get a bit of painting in to wind down and let all the information sink in.
Out of all the possessed models I have, this was my “worst” model, I just don’t like the legs, they make no sense, even for a daemon infused monster!
Obviously not finished yet, but wanted to share my work in progress!
First real possessed miniature done!
I think eventually I will paint another squad of these up but put a lot more time into each mini. To me, the possessed models epitomise what Chaos Space Marines are all about. The only part of the models I don’t like is that the odd pair of legs is a bit off or in the case of the one that is running just seem a little silly. But that’s the beauty of possessed, you can convert them loads!
Very Early work in progress picture of my next Possessed Marine.
The only thing finished here is the purple claws, everything else needs touching up, especially the metal areas and such. And the skin will be a little paler.
The concept I am trying to achieve is that these are still Chaos Marines. They share their bodies with daemons but they are still in control. So the purple is the Daemon coming through, and the skin has hints of purple in their, but essentially this is still a marine. He is still in charge (or so he thinks)!
Well I finished the Possessed Champion.
After some consideration, I may eventually convert something a little more fitting than this poor excuse for a miniature. I could feel all interest in the hobby draining from me with every brush struck!
