[UPDATE: FINISHED MODEL WITH WEATHERING AT BOTTOM OF POST]
(this isn't even breaking a 7 score on CMON :\ I thought it was better than that!) Working
on a Tau Broadside - note that I somehow managed to forget he kinda HAS
to take two drones (is that right? I don't have the codex...). I mostly
wanted to just paint the model because I like it. This is
pre-weathering - I wanted to capture this before I potentially wreck it,
but I think I want to work on trying out some weathering with dust,
pigments (you can see I started some of that on the base/feet) and
chipping. I'm pretty satisfied with this so far. Maybe weathering will
be a mistake :\
I was also trying to achieve a glowing effect on the "eye". Not completely satisfied with that either. Finally, he's not completely done - few details left to do other than the weathering.
I have a Riptide well into progress but in different colors I'm not happy with. Not sure what to do with him.
Last comment: I think I like black/dark backdrops better for my photos...I just wish I could get the white balance more accurate - this is black construction paper.
Ok, I decided to weather him after all. Finished suit:
