I went for a pretty muted palette for the old deadite, to focus on his lifelessness. I went as far as magnetizing his left hand, so I can swap it out depending on whether things are getting choppy out there...
I was lucky enough to have an 8-week paternity leave from work to get this huge awesome mini painted...
1. Black undercoat 2. Layer of Ghenna's Gold. Needn't be a uniform coat. This can look as crappy as you like. Just need to make sure you cover all the black. 3. Layer of Leadbelcher. Make this a pretty sparse layer. Leave the Ghenna's gold showing in all cracks and recesses. 4. Wash Devlan Mud. 5. Highlight Ironbreaker. This is probably the most important step. Take a similar approach to the leadbelcher layer - stick to highlights, but make sure that not too much of the brown/gold is left showing through.
At this point you can stop. Depending on the topography of what you're painting, it may still feel a little low on contrast or it could be a bit too shiny. If so:
6. Wash Devlan Mud. 7. Layer of Ironbreaker. Similar to step 5, but concentrate only on the starkest highlights.
I developed this approach painting what felt like a million skellies for my End Times army. Good place to experiment with corrosion and bone. Put any failed experiments on the back ranks - no-one will ever know!
@Farmer7574 ye, when it came out I was stunned as everyone else, but when I first saw it "live" in a GW store, I was kinda disappointed. For my taste, it's too bulky and looks like an action figure, no more like a miniature. Maybe it was due to the paintjob, which was, to be honest, far away from good GW sstandards. Dunno...one day I will get my hands on him, maybe I see it with other eyes than. ....maahahahahah Ronald McDonald version fits perfectly
Finally finished my Nagash after a months work. It might not be one of the best but i'm very pleased with the final product. Totally worth it still without a base tho as i will be basing him after 9th hits
@Farmer7574 Thanks. Nop thats Hawk Turquoise with a light dry brush of Abbadon Black : Hawk Turquoise : Boltgun Metal as 1:2:2 and a black wash on top. dont know it the current paint names have changed or not . Also for the highlights i'll refrain from doing any as my skill in highlighting is worse than a penguin's flying but if i get better at it i will update him
