It is time to call the Watch Captain with Jump Pack DONE. There were a few final details that needed to be completed first.
The base was got a couple layers of dry brushing. Imagine my surprise when I realized there was a bit of broken masonry at his feet! Not sure how I missed that for much of the project...
I chose a subtle blue glow for the jump pack engines. I won't call it OSL, though that is part of the effect. I chose not to go crazy with the glowing effect, and instead kept it subtle, as if perhaps, the engines are fired, but idling. A decal from an old decal sheet was added to the back for fun and to add interest to the otherwise blank, flat surface.
Arguably, the decal is a bit jammed in, but I like it! Possible makes up for my lack of free hand talent for cloaks and capes.
The gem in the belt buckle was painted with the GW Spiritstone Red painted directly over the gold. The left knee pad got a diagonal red stripe to match the rest of the force I have painted so far. This probably should have been a Blood Angels icon, but since the right shin had another icon, the left knee was the only place left for force affiliation. It is almost entirely hidden under the studded leather skirt anyway, so it'll hardly stand out either way...and I didn't bother with any pictures.
So following some other clean up on the combi-melta and some additional highlighting on the black armor, I reached a point where I decided to call this fella done. He got hit with a coat of Model Masters Lusterless Flat and then hit the light box for a photo shoot. Here's a great big seal of DONE for the project.
Here are a few shots form the light box, starting with a couple group shots with other completed Deathwatch projects.
He sure seems to fit in well.
Well, that's it for now. This fella got started in September of 2017...so...roughly seven months to complete him! It feels got to get it done.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
