For the final painting session, I started with the tilting shield, arbitrarily going with a split red/white color scheme.
The storm bolter got some paint, and the various icons got attention. And boy, this fella has A LOT of icons on his armor. Here is a good shot of the left shoulder pad. I'll probably scrawl a name or something on the banner before calling it quits.
The base got some paint to at last. Looking at the shot below, he's really coming together now.
And the back...
Then the final highlights were put on. All the parchment got some love from the P3 Menoth White Highlight; the golds got some Vallejo Gold added here and there, followed by some Vallejo Silver.
And the back...
I am really enjoying painting the Grey Knights, almost as much as Custodes. For me, the limited skills I know and the little tips and tricks just seem to work on these guys. I struggle much more with Deathwatch and Dark Angels. It's fun to be able to move between the various factions...working harder on some, and laying back to take it easy with others while still getting solid results across the board.
I'll close with some gallery shots from the light box. Scroll down to see a family shot of my recently completed Grey Knights, and a pic of the Deathwatch Watch Captain and Custodes Shield-Captain with this completed project. as well. I know it is all just piece meal work, but it feels good to have completed three characters to good standard in a couple weeks time.
This guy gets the big DONE seal!
I hope you are enjoying good results with your own projects.
