Wraith Engine - Metals Finished

Finally managed the finishing touches on all the NMM, and I've attached the big guy to his base.  Still have the Cryx-y glow to add and some more details for the base, but its close!

The NMM gold is pretty simple:
-Citadel Desert Yellow
-A couple applications of Flesh Wash Glaze (Flesh Wash/Matte Medium mix)
-Reapply Desert Yellow
-Citadel Bleached Bone
-More Flesh Wash Glaze

Wraith Engine Inching Along

Another progress update.  I don't usually post these kind of WIP pics because I churn through minis pretty hard, but in this case I've had a big army project I've been working on, and so have only been able to work on this in bits and pieces. 

This happy coincidence means I actually time to take pics at various stages.  Here, I've highlighted the steel and purple, but both have glazes coming too.

Steel so far is:  Rainy Gray (Reaper Master Series), Black Glaze, reapply Rainy Gray, Rainy Gray/White 50/50.

Purple so far is: Hexen Purple (Vallejo), Warlock Purple (citadel)/Hexen 50/50, Warlock, Warlock/Tentacle Pink 50/50

Also, I'm trying some two-brush blending on this project.  Its interesting so far. . .

Wraith Engine Progress

Inching along on this one. . .

 Basecoated and glazed

And since you're looking at this post, why don't you click on over to check out my Crucible site?

 Crucible is a WM/H and 40K wargaming event in Orlando in March 2013. Last year (when we were WM/H only) we gave away the Grand Prize of a 35 pt. pro-painted WM/H army that you can find elsewhere on my blog.

Bane Lord Taterus and Bane Knights

I actually painted these guys a while ago, but am only just getting around to posting them. With all the fiddly bits and metal, I'm afraid it breaks my theme a little. All the 'fake' NMM tends to break down when its so prevalent. And it took forever to do, too!

This is just a handful of the full unit.  After you've seen a handful of Bane Knights, you've kind of seen them all.
