-Preaching of the Mad Deacon Ivanatis of Ragnor V, executed for heretical doom-saying, one week before the emergence of the Dark Mechanicus from Ragnor V's largest mountain range.
I'm sure that the above prose gave away that today's showcase features a daemon engine. It does: the Forgefiend to be specific (for those interested in the kit review, click HERE).
The model follows the scheme of the army, bar one change; its main trim colour is gold, not yellow. Gold is normally reserved for my champions and heroes, but I felt that yellow on this model might be too garish. Plus, gold is good, Gold is shiny.
The model also uses red/yellow plasma, which I haven't done properly before. If you want to know how I did it, here is a small step-by-step guide:
- Basecoat Machrite red
- Layer: Evil Sunz Scarlet
- Layer: Troll Slayer Orange
- Layer: Troll Slayer Orange/Flash Gitz Yellow (1:1 ratio)
- Wash: Carroburrg Crimson
- Layer: Troll Slayer Orange/Flash Gitz Yellow (1:2 ratio)
- Layer: Flash Gitz Yellow
- Layer Flash Gitz Yellow/white (2:1 ratio)
Many stages, but surely the results speak for themselves. Considering it is the first time doing this colour of plasma weaponry, I am extremely happy with the results.
Now of course, you want to see more. To finish off, here are some more pictures for you to enjoy.
