Just a quick update before I get to some juicy stuff later… Brother Russkikh is a lovely old Rogue Trader Chaplain which has some fantastic details on it but a horrible helmet. I did the best I could with the face but it doesn’t look very skull-like. I have to say that it looks better in the metal, as it were. The picture here is not very flattering at all! Oh well, its hardly spoiling my chances of getting called up for an invitational 😀
So I’ve just finished basing this lad. On paper it looked good. A Terminator Chaplain, home-made crozius, a lamp instead of a banner. But look how it’s come out. Black really is an awful colour to work with for the beginner. the edge highlights look like it’s chipped. the face on this is a terrible mould in my opinion, painting it bone-coloured looked awful, then instead of stripping it and starting again I painted over the face with gold and tried to use washes and drybrushes but it doesn’t look like it at all! I’m still quite pleased with the little conversion but the paintjob, not so much. Still, it’s all practic e innit?
