So in the second attempt i tried to correct this, and this time round the test subject was a bona-fide Custodian (well, mine and Scibors version anyways!) I'm much happier with this attempt, and i think a large part of its success was down to Vallegio's paint range! Their Gold Yellow was a bit more gritty than GW's Sunburst yellow, and pulled off a Gold look a bit better!
Tomorrow I'll be pressing on with the other colours on the model! "But where's his Guardian Spear" i hear you cry.....!
Well its here! After some useful comments in on the last post, i shortened the blade of the spear, bringing it much more into proportion. I also added some detail to the blade itself, as the Emperors finest do love their bling! The wings used to be part of a SM Force Commanders Battle Standard, but theres not much left of that now! So i hope to have this guy finished by the weekend.
I've also noticed a sizable Tyranid order has been placed with GW using my credit card, so i expect the Hive Fleet to be arriving in west Wales again soon! In the meantime i better track down that sneaky 'Stealer that must be lurking around here somewhere......!
