If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.

I was actually surprised at how quickly it came.  I placed the order late on Wednesday night; received the email on Thursday saying it was being shipped, and to expect it in 4 - 5 days; then it arrived around 1600 on Friday.

That's the benefit of having a north American warehouse for forgeworld! They come as fast as any other gw order! (Very fast!)

The Lion is done, so now all I have to do is work on that obscenely epic base of his!

That looks amazing!

How did you do the cloak?
“Evil is relative…You can’t hang a sign on it. You can’t touch it or taste it or cut it with a sword. Evil depends on where you are standing, pointing your indicting finger.”

Thanks :)

I'm old fashioned in that I really only use three colours to obtain the look I am going for.  It will be a dark base colour (in this instance, it is Khorne Red), the brightest layer (Evil Sunz Scarlet), and Abaddon Black.

I put a decent amount of the base colour on a wet palette, and will paint the cloak in that colour.  I add a drop or two of black to the paint on the palette until it gets to the shade I want, and then I paint that into the recesses of the cloak.  I then do a mixture of the base colour and the layer colour to work my way up to the final layer of just the layer. 

If you look at the second last picture, you can see there are five layers of colour all together.  The darkest two layers are Khorne Red and the Khorne Red / Abaddon Black mixture.  The next two layers are 1:1 and 1:2 of Khorne Red / Red Sunz Scarlet.  The last layer is just the Scarlet.

Finished off the Lion's base, so he is now 100% complete.  I love these display bases because you can use excessive amounts of Blood for the Blood God!










I also did up a 60mm base so that I can use him in 40k to properly replace Guilliman.  His display base is just too big at 80mm for me to justify.
