Progress continues on the Imperial Guard (Astro Militarum). I’ve continued honing my painting and basing skill on one of the the Heavy Weapon Squads (missile launchers), working up from the base coat. There are three updates:
1. Highlights for skin and fatigues.
2. Armour has been washed with black. 3. Drybrush and add caked mud to the base.
Fatigues: Russ Grey washes with Midnight Blue, followed by Russ Grey and then Fenris Grey highlights.
Skin: Cadian Fleshtone base, Reikland shade and Cadian Fleshtone then Kislev Flesh highlights.
Armour: I’ve washed the armour and weapons with Abaddon Black wash.
Base: dry brushed with codex grey and had Agrax Earthshade added in pools. A wash had been applied to the pools as well.
The below image was taken with a flash, which I now realise shows aspects to the paint that aren’t visible in normal light or even by the naked eye. The washes are presented starkly against the model, which is much more subtle in reality.
