I sat down, inspired to finish this this weekend. A lot of NCAA basketball to watch also helped :). These guys will likely be counts-as thunderhammer/stormshield terminators in most games though they could likely count as whatever I want since they have a bolter (or halbred for GK). The gold was painted on a tan primer using GW shining gold. A few coats of that with an airbrush then a few washes of gryphonne sepia. After that I drybrushed mithril silver over the top.
Here's the squad leader in all his glory. After I seal these and matt varnish them I'll go back and put another coat of gloss on the shield gems to make them pop. Modelwise I s hould point out that these guys are huge. They tower over GW marines and terminators. I should have put a scale photo but forgot. Oh well! I'm really happy with how this guy's face turned out. I painted tallarn flesh over the whole head, then devlan mud. After that I overbrushed tallarn flesh again followed by a highlight of elf flesh on all of the highpoints like nose, cheeks and forhead. I follow this up with another devlan wash in recesses of the ears, mouth and under the eyes. The eyes are astronomicon grey and chaos black. I don't like white eyes as they're too bright and look unnatural. The hair used adeptus battlegrey drybrushed on followed by a stipple of chaos black . Colours and such inspired by FTW tutorials with some artistic license.
