Loved how they turned out, Calam! Especially like what you did with the Gravis Captain, wonderful work!

That Captain is looking terrific. The choice of white is so, so good. It's what I've done with my guys. Anyone with a cloak has it white one side, red the other. They stand out a mile, but it's such a clean look and the natural colour doesn't throw off the balance of the painting.

Lovely work so far. I'm also looking forward to a group shot.

Keep it up!!

Thank you so much guys!  ;D

Iíll get a group shot up asap, and when I get a game of 40k going, I will certainly report it!  :)

In the meantime, please enjoy this WIP ancient:





The banner is a bugger.  :P

It might have been a bugger, but bloody hell it looks fantastic at the moment. How do you get your finish so smooth?

Itís the tiny details you see.  :P

Thanks bud!  :)

My secret is that I thin the amphetamine parrot out of the paints.  Theyíve got the consistency of milk by the time Iím done with them.  Then, itís just about layering up.  Iím currently on 4!  ;D

That's one glorious relic of the Chapter, I hope your Celestial Lions honor it in battle! Cannot wait to see that Banner finished ;D!

You should put the Latin word for lion in the scroll panel. Looking great as always.

I would consider putting your chapter symbol inside the big circle if you have a decal or can paint it.

I must say that I preferred how it looked previously. The wash on the back makes the banner look wet as it has pooled too much in some places.

Still looks good and hopefully once it is finished the wash will be less obvious.

Thatís a great idea!  So that would be leo, or possibly leones caelestis?

You read my mind!  :)

Iím actually considering that!  Thing is, Iím not so confident with doing it, so I might outsource it to someone who can.

Agreed.  I probably went too heavy on the wash.  However, Iíve made further progress which I hope rectifies it:





I think Iím very close to finishing him.  He has been difficult, let me tell me.  :P

I think the Banner is coming together splendidly, just needs a few more extra details picked out, which I can see you're planning to. I actually kind of liked the wet look, if you modeled the base correctly, you could have given the impression that the Primaris Ancient stands defiant amidst a storm. But it looks great now, onward to completion!

That is looking so much better now Calamity and I really like how the front of the banner looks. Once you have added your Chapter symbol it is going to look fantastic.

There is still a bit of a sheen to the back that makes it look wet, but I think this might be caused by your camera flash.

Excellent Banner, Calamity! Eager to see if you can get a chapter icon on there somehow, but it already looks finished even if you don't.

I really look forward to seeing your Gobbos!
