WIP Wyvern

Hi Everyone! 

I've been working on the Wyvern for my guard and it is coming along nicely. Hopefully it shouldn't be too long before it is done!

Took me plenty of trial and error but by the end I'm very pleased with the display screen, I initially painted it all very light and then started darkening it dark angels green and black mixes with green and black glazes. 

Here you can see how it will roughly look with the Praetorian gunner and the mortars attached. Then rest of the tank should be relatively straightforward to paint. It will of course feature the customary freehand that all my armoured elements have. 

Id love to know what you all think!

Sworn to protect...

A few more photos of Nork and the colonels command squad which he will join.

After viewing him with the unit and taking into consideration the feedback on previous posts I made a few changes. I altered the colour on the helmet band to match the command HQ and also added some extra freehand which you will see in the following photos.

As all the human members of the command HQ wear red sashes I thought Nork needed an Ogryn equivalent. But lets be honest, I don't think a sash would last long. As a result I decided to paint a red stripe on the armour as an ogryn compromise which also allows him to keep up to speed with Praetorian uniform regulations.

The green, blue and purple are all details colours that you will see throughout the army. 

Perhaps its not apparant from the photos but I applied more red shading to the scar but I think it's been lost a bit in the photo light.

All in all I'm rather pleased how he turned out! When I next play a game of 40k I will most definitely be taking him, which may well mean putting the Colonel in harms way... theres no point taking him if he can't bash something! 

Right, on to the next thing to paint... perhaps it's time to paint the Wyvern...

Finished Praetorian Nork Deddog

Hi everyone!

The new year is so far turning out to be a good one hobby-wise for me. I've managed to get some more paint on Nork and bar the base (and any possible freehand) he is completed. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

WIP Nork Deddog

A belated happy new year everyone!

Just to let you know I'm still alive and kicking and after a very slow year of hobby I'm hoping things will pick up in 2016.

I'll post more soon but till then a couple of WIP of Nork...

Still to paint on him are the knife, the gun, the cigar and the skull speaker. Maybe also some freehand...
