2 Warlords - Painting Dark Imperium

Howdy Guys and Girls and welcome to a new weekly series - 2 Warlords!

In the next weeks, we’re gonna paint the contents of “Dark Imperium” - after that, we will see! Bob is doing Blood Angels while I’m painting my Death Guard with their heresy era scheme - ready for the Siege of Terra!


Let’s take a look on what we worked this week:




Atia’s Death Guard - Foetid Bloat-drone

I decided to start with the cute bloat drone - it allowed me to try the colour scheme and it didn’t need any transfer sheets. The model is gorgeous and I hope we see an untainted Stratos-Automata version down the line.







I used a similar recipe to Paul Rudge’s for the white:

Primer of Corax White
Basecoat of Typhon Ash (airbrush)
Zenithal coat of Typhon Ash mixed with a bit of white (airbrush)
Layer of Seraphim Sepia mixed with lots of lots of FW airbrush Clear (brush)
Edge Highlights and weathering

Next on my painting table is the Malignant Plaguecaster!

Also a shot of the bloat drone next to some Plaguebearers:




Bob - Blood Angels Primaris Lieutenant



Hello everyone !!

I started with a lieutenant - the one with the power sword. I used the Airbrush brush method I already showed you:
https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/2104
&
https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/2125

Meet Lt Bob of the Blood Angels’ third company.

Paints used for the red armor :
Black Primer (vallejo)
Zenithal 45° with vallejo grey primer
Zenithal 90° with vallejo white primer
Mephiston red air glaze on all the model with airbrush.
Black lining all the armor plates Flatblack (scale75)
Wildrider Orange highlight on every edge
Wildrider Orange free hand parallel to every dark line



Leather holster and bags are painted with :
Basecoat of Bootstrap Leather (P3)
Shaded with Battlefield Brown (p3)
Final shading was made with a mix of Battlefield Brown and Black 70/30.
Highlight is Rucksack Tan (p3)
Lining with Rucksack Tan (p3)
Stippling with Rucksack Tan (p3). I made a small dot of diluted Rucksack Tan with the tips of a drybrush-brush to create the effect of leather. (Angel Giraldez explains it in his book if you want more info)


The power sword :

To make power sword like this you need an airbrush (or serious blending skill with a brush) and masking tape.

First mask a side of the blade like this

You see the mask is in the middle of the blade, and make a very clean separation.
then :
White Primer ( vallejo white primer)
Light blue blend (sky blue air vallejo)
Royal Blue blend (french blue air vallejo)
Dark Blue blend (signal blue air vallejo)
black dot.

The effect is better if you do each side in a separate direction (white top for one and bottom for the other).

Each time reduce the area of the blend to conserve a small part of the color.
For more details check this tutorial : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7me7OB3XP0

Metal, gold, gun, black :

Metal is : Vallejo metal steel, dark shade(army painter) , silver lining Vallejo metal.
Gold is : Vallejo Metal gold, dark shade(army painter) , silver lining Vallejo metal.
Black is : Flatblack scale 75, then astronomican grey + white.
Seal is : purple + white.
Parchment is : Rucksack tan + strong shade and hilight with menoth white base.


3 things are still missing :

1 gem on the blade and the base.
For the base I want to go lava style but I’m going to do all them in one go! (I will post a tutorial on how to do this)

For the gem, I’m not sure of the color or the technique I want to try. But I’d like to have all the power swords with the same gem style. Will paint them once everything is complete.

Transfer Sheets - I ordered micro set and micro sol but it didn’t arrived yet :(

We hope you like our progress - see ya next week :)

Regards,
Lady Atia and Bob
