    An old plastic sergeant mini that I decided to throw some paint at… and got a little carried away.

     

    Nearly finished.

    Beautiful! Did you use a spray brush on that?

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    That is amazing!  How do you achieve such shading effect?

    No airbrush on this one, it’s an exercise in glazing.

    The purple is shaded with Oxford blue, built up in glazes. The hilights were also glazed in by adding white to the original base colour. The whole blend was smoothed out with a final couple of glazes in the original base colour.

     

    The bone was a similar exercise using brown ink and glazing medium to push the shadows.

    Thank you, I think 😋

    I used to consider glazing to be some kind of witchcraft until I sat down and watched someone doing it on a Twitch live stream. It’s fairly straight forward once you have a couple of hours practice under your belt, but it is a time consuming process. One shoulder takes me about two hours.

    About another three hours got me to this point, nearly there.

    I don’t play 40K but I have a lot of the older figures that I paint.  Very nice job on that !
