Further progress on the Knight and his buddy

Tiny update here, as I've had a few hours to slap paint on these two.

There's also a new project coming, but I think I'll wait a few days until it's a bit further along to grab some pics. 

Konstantinos first, since he's effectively the tester for the Sepulchre knight. I've hugely enjoyed being able to test out recipes and so forth on this guy and then apply them immediately to the Knight afterwards, it's worked well painting wise and kept them from being boring. I think I'll try that again on the next models I do. 

His upper body is sorta done-ish with a few exceptions, such as the sword (the red'll get worn off during painting if I do it now, so it's the last thing I'll do before varnishing him) and the lights on the back piece. I'll be gluing his arm on shortly, I just wanted to take the opportunity to photo him and see if there's anything missing first.

Now, the knight might seem like he's been neglected, but that's only because it's not apparent how much time has been spent on that cape.
I've spent about 1½ hours on that little bit of the cape under his sword, and I still need to tweak the deepest shadows. Painting purple is a nightmare, but somehow I'm having tremendous fun with it. I'll admit I'm worried about freehanding the KotHS symbol on the chest piece though, I think that turned out well and I'd hate to have redo it.

As always, if you spot anything that could be better, please leave a comment. :)

  1. I am still in utter awe of these sir, absolutely brilliant so far.

    The cape on the KoTHS really makes him pop, fantastic blending on it.

    As to Konstantinos his helmet is brilliant, from the white to the painting of the visor I can't find anything at fault at all.

    Keep up the good work. And get cracking on the haramaki ;)
