TRAITOR SCUM, part two

 The Games Workshop Demon Prince is an awesome model in all respects! I didn't build this particular demon but I am working on a second, and am almost as impressed with the kit as I have been with the finished models. I know they have been around the block for awhile now, but this is the first for me to paint - and what a painters dream!

This guy came to me fully built, and needed just a little trim and a wash before getting started. A hulking model that will already stand out due to size, even in a CSM Army - I set out to make sure his paint job was striking enough for the attention this guy will receive from the enemies big guns!

With his Obliterator cohort, everyone got medium sand as a base to work from later for flock, mud, and snow finish.  Before moving on from this point, I had to get all of the tiny spikey and shooty bits onto each Obliterator. What a project!

Three-part primer, Black, Grey, and White all crafted from GW acrylic plus distilled water at about 1:15. Some items like the Rhino doors only get the white, but as I have preached about at length - installing the color gradient at this stage saves me a Ton of work later.

The armor effects were installed via airbrush starting with pure Regal Blue and working my way up to pure Warlock Purple in Three stages for the Oblits and Five for the Prince.

 After the basecoats and highlights the bases and each model from the knee down was given the mud brown treatment, then a two part green flock to get the bases started. The snow on these models was achieved with a combo of the new GW Mountain Snow texture, elmers glue, and Army Builder snow flock. Everyone was finished with a frosty airbrush effect.

Thanks again everyone!
