Making Krälgor: Part 2

Here at long last is the second part to making Krälgor.

Phase 5 Base Painting

So at this face I put down all of my basic colors that I would build upon.  Note that I tried to do NMM (Non Metallic Metal), but after several horribly botched attempts I gave up and opted for metal.

Phase 6 Final Layers

Then next step was to do the final layers that would be the actual colors of things I was going to be adding more detail to later.  Basically this made the colors more solid.

Phase 7 Details and Freehand

Finally I got to fleshing out the details and doing some freehand. I did some Chaos Runes on the armor to (try) and make it look like they were burning.  And I wanted to add some screaming skulls and faces on the inside of the cape.  I also wanted to give him the classic World Eaters tribal tattoos like you see on Angron.

Phase 8 Final Details

Lastly  I touched things up like the XII on the flayed skin on the leg and added more definition with the final details.  I also painted and varnished the base.

And here he is complete!

Small update

I’m hoping to be having some things to post soon. I have taken a break from painting the Noise Marine until I can get a better grasp of what I want to do with him, and in the mean time I have been focusing on painting the new CSM kit as Iron Warriors. I have to say while I had mixed feelings about how limited the models were as far as posing and customizing options, I have been thoroughly enjoying painting them. Though that could largely be due to the fact that I have been wanting to paint some IW for awhile and it’s a very nice break from my usual World Eaters color scheme of red and bronze.

Hopefully I will have the squad finished within the next few days or at least by next week.
