Crimson Fists Grav-Devastators revisited


So... After googling quite a few pictures, I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do with the Grav Cannons. The first two didn't work out, so I went back to a little more refined version of my original concept; Vallejo Model Air Light Green base lightened with White from the same range. I layered the paint in progressively more narrow lines along the barrel, and finished off with Black Ink into the recesses.

All in all... A distinct improvement, even though I see that I still need to fix the 'bleed' around the eye lenses. (Damn you, camera!)

    1. Cheers! Always appreciated, coming from a painter of your calibre. (I've been following your progress on "Ironfate" with great interest. Too bad he was so 'underappreciated' at the Standoff.)

    2. Meh. It's not the first time I poured myself into a model and it was overlooked. I'll get over it soon enough. Art is subjective, and we all see things differently.

      Oh, I'm with you on the camera thing too. Every time I'm done a model - including sealed, and I go to take pictures, I know I'm going to see something I don't want to. Cameras are mean like that.

  2. Looking good! But I see what you mean with the eye lenses. Something that I always struggle with. Never seem to get as good as I would like! Macro lenses are extremely unforgiving!

  3. So I was not to far off with stating ”less is more”. A big improvement, and I think you ”got it right this time” ☺
    I hard-line the rim around the lenses on my Ultramarines, it is maybe a method worth considering when it comes to fixing that bleed around the lenses.
