Here is just one of the 5 Sanguinary Guard that I am painting and donating to the Heroes of Armageddon project. Metallic Gold is proving harder than I thought to get to a high level of quality, without it looking ordinary. I've already used countless washes of old GW inks and washes and at the moment I am OK with where they are at now. Still not 100% satisfied but we'll see as the model gets more color on him.
The wings are something else, and these picture doesn't do them justice. I am pleased at how they look now and I really like the definition and high contrast I've achieved there. Citadel Shadow Grey, you are my best friend.
I am holding myself to a much higher standard for this project. Why? Because it is for something greater than just gaming, it's for Doctors Without Borders! On top of that, I've got the pressure of these being displayed to the all the attendees at Games Day 2011.
More pics to come as I get close to completing these, the emperor's finest.
