Sanguinor - got wings, will fly (with added tutorial for the wings)

And yes, as you might have guessed it, the wings and feathers etc are finally finished. That final highlight and touching up was much more time consuming than I expected but at least I can say I like the end result.

Recipe for the wings:
- Basecoat with a 1:1 mix of Adeptus Battlegrey : Astronomican Grey
- Wash with Asurmen Blue
- Highlight with Codex Grey
- Highlight with Fortress Grey
- Highlight with a 1:1 mix of Fortress Grey : Skull White
- Highlight with Skull White
- Paint recesses with a 1:1 watered down mix of  Chaos Black : Necron Abyss
- Touch up highlights with Skull White

I found out that for the jump pack wings it's better to use a larger brush (size 2 or GW standard brush) for all highlighting except the final Skull White highlight and even at that stage I recomend the use of a smaller brush for the extreme edges only. Using a larger brush will not only make highlighting easier but it will help you manipulate paint towards the edges of the feathers.Furtheromore it will help build up some texture on your highlights to emitate the texture of the feathers in the wings. For the rest of the feathery bits you can highlight normally as the individual feathers are too small to use a large brush.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous, this is coming along nicely!! Can't wait to see this completed, it will be breathtaking indeed. Perhaps in your future posts you could give us a stage-by-stage account of what you did? When you do the parchment/scrolls could you break each stage down? Keep up the good work, and good luck with the rest of this project.

    Ave Imperator!

  2. @ VENNgeance: I was thinking of making a tutorial after I finish painting the whole mini. Your idea seems better though. I could make mini tutorials for each stage and then collect them in one post for easy reference. In fact I'm going to edit this post now and add a tutorial for the wings!

    @ Sgt. Brisbane: Thanks!
