Grey Knight figure
« on: November 1, 2005, 03:16:30 PM »
Here is a mini I painted around one year ago.

Link: http://www.coolminiornot.com/104538

I went for a hot feel, hence the lava base and the redhot force weapon.

The daemon head is a Slaanesh Daemonette, I made the blood dripping from her head by mixing epoxy resin with purple ink before dipping a piece of wire into it and suspending the wire vertically until the epoxy set.

Hope you all like.

Why not? He's a daemonhunter, she's... well, a daemon!

Great model - fantastic, I gave it a ten and I can't fault it :)

That is one of the coolest grey knight terminators I have ever seen. How did you do the lava base?

That is so cool the way you did the glowing lava and the blade, pure awesome-ness. The glowing eyes are also a nice touch. Wicked model, great work there, hope to see more, etc etc etc.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

To make the lava base :

1 - File a base slightly with sandpaper until it's smooth.
2 - bake a lump of Sculpey and, when hard and cool, attack it with a hammer and screwdriver, carve lumps out of it until it's as rough as you want it to be then glue to the base.
3 - take a Space Marine or two and carve of the little knob off his back where his powerplant/backpack attaches and glue these on the base to represent bubbles
4 - paint the base to represent lava (black through red to orange then yellow and finally white)
5 - paint the bubbles with thick paint and let it run down the sides this will give a nice flowing shape to the bubbles coming up from the base also make sure the bubbles are painted up to white.
6 - paint the rock as you want it.
7 - work out where the light from the lava is going to strike the rock and the drybrush with the deepest red you've got then drybrush progressively lighter shades  in a smaller area  until you are using roughly 50:50 yellow/orange mix. Never go up to white it doesn't look right and try to avoid using blood red for some reason it doesn't look right either.
8 - give the rock a very thin glaze with black ink to tie the rock and light reflections together.
9 - jobs finished.

it's a very nice model... just i don't understand the daemonette...

Daemonhunter / Daemonette, seemed logical to me  ;)
