Finished – Thousand Sons Defiler

By | 22nd August 2017

+++ Complete +++

After a good paint session, as I played D&D over Google+, I got the Defiler finished. Complete with random arcane markings, which I feel keep the demon trapped inside.

So all the bronze trim got some shading and minor highlighting. To add in some shadows as comments suggested and all. The tentacle scourges got some red wash and some gold over the dirty bronze to brighten the tops a little.

There is a magic symbol on each of the legs and the tail, some of which were taken from alchemy symbols. I did a fairly dark green as the rough outline, followed by a bright green and white on top. I am not 100% happy with it but cannot see how to fix it.

The metal of the body got a nice verdigris wash to make ita bit darker, it wanted to pool everywhere though. I spent ages drying brushes out to move it around a bit more, only to have to do it somewhere else.
