Angel of Absolution WIP...

So here are some WIP pictures of my first models for the new army. I was finally able to get the macro settings adjusted properly on my camera and I have to admit it works really well; almost too well. I'm really surprised at the amount of detail that shows up in these pictures and the number of mistakes that I see on the models. Honestly, when looking at them normally, both under the modeling light and in pure sunshine they look really sharp but after looking at the pictures I see many areas that need to be touched up. Looks like I'll be digging out the ole' Opti-Visor so that I can get a closer look at things.

Anyways, here are the pictures and feel free to post your comments below:

These first three shots are of my actual test model, it's one of the Stern Guard veterans. The color scheme was taken directly from the Siege of Vraks - Vol. III book from Forge World. This one is mostly done with the painting part but as you can tell I still have add the base and static grass.

 The second model is the Sergeant from the Stern Guard set and I still have to complete the backpack and pick out some of the details on the power-fist. as with the first model I still need to complete the base and add the static grass.

So that is it for now, I'll post pictures of the completed models later this week.



  1. What grey did you use on his chest aquila?

  2. The dark grey is Vallejo's German Grey, I prefer it to Codex Grey or Black because it has a more 'weathered' and realistic look to it. I also use Windsor Newton's oil paints for my washes and they blend better with Vallejo's over other brands.
