Night Lord's Contemptor WIP #3

So as I said before I was going to try and finish the lascannon arm for the Contemptor last night and I was successful with my deadline. Pretty pleased with how it worked out and now I just have the close combat arm to finish, then it's on to the twin assault cannons. I have some more work to do on the assault cannons, having persuaded my mother to part with some of her unused and damaged costume jewellery so I can pinch the chains for a bit of added detail.

Night Lord's Contemptor WIP #1

Morning all!

It's been a week since my last update but I have managed some work on my Night Lord's Contemptor. I was working on my vow for the Iron Without contest but I failed that miserably due to a lack of enthusiasm for the model I was painting. It was also a Dreadnought but I had done some conversion work and to be perfectly honest I was not at all happy with how it turned out.

Anyway, so far I have done the metal areas on the back and legs using Rhinox Hide as a base and a heavy dry brush of Leadbelcher. I like this method because it saves using washes to tone down the metal which also saves time and gives the metal a more worn look.

I have also worked on the blue for the torso and started filling in the details like the wings and scroll work and also some of the bronze areas. I used the same base paint for the scroll work and the skulls/helmet but I will be using different methods to stop them looking the same on the finished model.

Thanks for looking, C&C always welcome.
