|WIP of Imperial Fists|
|AP Demonic Yellow basecoat|
I opted to go right into the Sepia wash stage. I used the AP Soft Tone and tried to be somewhat precise with my placement of the wash along edges and into the details. Well, that didn't work so well! I proceeded to do the detail work. I would go back part way through the detail work and start touching up with AP Demonic Yellow, but more about that later!
Here is a summary of the detail work, along with an image of most of the detail work, minus the base and the lenses:
- Pauldron Red edging Red was AP Pure Red
- Black on armor joints and bolter was a craft paint (gasp!)
- Aquilla was AP Greedy Gold with highlights of Shining Silver
- Bolter silver was was AP Gunmetal
- Lenses were Vallejo Jade Green
- Base was craft paint Granite Grey
As I mentioned earlier, I also went back and touched up a lot of the yellow with AP Demonic Yellow from the dropper bottle. This went on VERY thin (as yellows usually do), but did a good job with 2 or 3 touchups to smooth out any "over-sepia'd" spots.
I threw a wash of AP Strong Tone over all the metallic parts and the grey on the base. A small highlight of Pewter Grey on the bolter was a substitute for GW Dawnstone highlights.
At this point I just need to finish the base with some Dove Grey drybrushing, and throw some Vallejo Foul Green highlights into the lenses. A VERY THIN edging of sepia along some of the joints might be in order, along with edge highlights done with a lightened mix of Demonic Yellow, but there is actually more color depth to the model than my photos show. I guess I need to build a better studio to shoot miniatures!
Now to start on the "rougher" scheme that will go on the 30k Mk.III armors.
