Sanguinor - armour finished and I added a recipe for painting the blue glow in the jump pack

I'm very happy to announce that the armour is now more or less finished! I must say I'm quite fond of the result. Since it was my first attempt at NMM I was afraid it would go horribly wrong but I think it turned out prety well - for a "good tabletop quality" mini anyway. I even painted the glow on jump pack's exhaust! I'm quite curious to hear what you think of the mini so far.

And since I've been asked about it on Bolter & Chainsword I'll add the recipe for the blue glow in the jump pack thrusters here.

Actually painting the glow is pretty easy:

- Basecoat with Astronomican Grey
- Wash with Asurmen Blue
- Highlight with Astronomican Grey (I think that Fortress Grey would work as well if not better due to less pigmentation)
- Highlight with Skull White
- Glaze with a mix of 1:2 Asurmen Blue:H2O
- Highlight with Skull White

It may sound like a lot of stages but since you can be quite relaxed as far as highlight placement and "crispness" is concerned it can be done pretty quickly. It's good to have a hair dryer nearby to help the washes dry or, if you have lots of jump packs to paint, you can batch-paint the glow to save time.

  1. It's looking amazing!! And I really like the glow on the exhaust, something I've planned to add to all my jump-packs. I am looking forward to seeing the completed project!! Keep it up.

  2. I'm glad you like it VENNgeance! I'm pretty happy about the results so far myself. It's nice when a new technique works ok from the first time.

  3. Really beautiful work, Brother Captain. I'm even more impressed that this is only your first attempt at NMM. Seriously?? Looks fantastic! And thank you for going over how you painted the glow from the jump-pack as that is a very cool effect.

  4. I agree with the others. For a first attempt at NMM, this is pretty much amazing. Great work. What are your plans for the chalice and the sword then?

  5. @ Pappa JJ: To be honest I didn't expect it to turn out so well myself. I should give credit to Dezartfox from Bolter & Chainsword whose technique I'm copying. He managed to come up with a very effective technique for painting NMM really fast.

    @ Kuffeh: I'm not sure about the sword yet but as for the chalice... take a look at the blog post I just posted. ;)
