Heroes of Armageddon Update

Turquoise is quickly becoming my favorite color to paint with, as you can see here. It's a great color for power weapon blades and even works well when shading white. This model has a long way to go still but over this weekend it should be done along with his four other battle brothers. Painting an entire squad to a high standard has been a challenge but one that I have really enjoyed. So far, having a wet palette has really helped as it keeps paint wet and prevents it from drying out while you're painting a whole unit like this.

Support the Heroes of Armageddon project by using the paypal widget in the upper right hand side of this blog and put yourself in the running to win this model, his 4 battle brother along with an entire army of Blood Angels Space Marines or one of 3 other beautiful armies. All support goes directly to Doctors without Borders for the great work that they do!

Tim, looking really nice. I agree the turquoise does make a power sword sing.

BTW I can see the pic just fine.

Truely beautiful...
The power weapons Iove, mainly as they are not so in your face but clearly glowing in a subtle fashion rather than the high contrasting power weapons I see these days

Hi Tim!

Your models are really looking darn good! I've detected your apprehension for painting these metallic models. I think you can give yourself a break on that. You are really doing a great job on this and they'll look like sparkling stars when put in with the rest of the army. I think it also says a lot about you. Out of the entire project group, they gave you the hardest thing to paint. That's really honorable! I'm glad to see you decide to paint these in true metallics instead of Non-metallic-metal, which I personally am not a fan of. Illusion is cool, but I never though NMM ever really looked like anything more than cartoon-like cell shading.

Keep it up! Really nice!

Old Shatter,

Have you a demo of the technique you used to paint the power weapons. It looks delightful!
