The Dark Fury Squad is done, here's the last photo dump of them. I think they came out looking pretty good and I'm loving the pop of the claws. It really stands out and adds interest.
I added a little more detail to the backpack vents, adding some glow and black weathering to add some exhaust engines.
I cleaned up the bases and added the black ring to tighen up the look.
I also added a light glow to the models so show the claws are indeed glowing. I didn't want to go overboard as I said they are suppose to be dark and matte.
Now it's time to get some new moving along. I started working on the Storm Eagle. Now that I've moved the DF off the table its time to build up some Vets and Techs.
I've been mixing it up between vehicles and infantry to keep it interesting. I'm also looking into what I'm going to paint for the painting comp. At least one thing will be Eldar as I have to represent! 8) ... Maybe one of the new releases. Who knows..
This week has been hectic but I've squeezed in some time at night to work on these guys. Its funny but it seems like the final stretch is taking the longest to wrap up. Painting the claws took longer then I expected haha..
But I'm liking the outcome. These are almost done.
I also applied the weathering to them adding the grimly look. I didn't go as far as I did with the Mor Deythan but I did want them to have the same in the field feel.
I still need to wrap up some of the final details which is hopefully won't take too much longer haha..
I also started on the jump packs and they are mostly done other then a little white here and there to show more of the high heat.
It's kind of hard to see but I did finish up the eyes other then final white highlights.
The final bit will be to line the bottom of the bases black and then I think that will wrap them up.
This weekend was really busy and will be the upcoming week. A lot of stuff going on so sadly I don't see much time being spent at the painting table. I did get all of the wings base coated and attached which is cool. I started on some of the claws but didn't get as far as I would like.
Right now I only have about three far along. I got some of the blue blends started but I need to add the final white highlights/glow area. It's a little too blue at the moment so when I add the white to the tips and edges it should lighten and smooth the claws look.
I also added some more of the brass coloring to them to give a little more color and ties it together with vehicles. I added it to the pins in the wings and some of the clasps on the chest as well as some icons.
Weathering needs to be added to these guys as well, it won't be as heavy as the Mor Deythan but it needs to be there as well.
I'd like to say I'll have this squad wrapped up by the end of the week but I don't think I can make that prediction as I'll be super busy. I having something going on every night this week that I'll probably be too tired. Once I get these guys knocked out I'll probably start on the Storm Eagle so I can have both of the Flyers complete. I'm still figuring out what I want to paint for the Capitol Palette but I think I'll be starting to work on some of those as well to mix it up and give me a break from all of the black haha..
