executor's painted figures gallery

Recommended Posts

so It's been a long time since i painted any Imperial assault miniatures as i've been busy painting over 50 infinity miniatures over the past several months

 

i can't be bothered to look up my old gallery thread so i am going to start a new one

here's my latest batch of figures that includes a new hero, some droids and disposable scum

so as practice goes on, skills improve and different forms of technique improve your skills as a painter.

 

while i don't plan to go back on all of my IA miniatures, i will go back on my favorites.  The RGC in particular, as he's my favorite model!! Here are the before and after snots just by doing some additional highlighting and NMM (non metallic metal)on the blades, which i learned to do fairly recently

it's very hard to tell from the lighting, but i tried something different with the whites. i ended up mixing a small amount of Fenrisian Grey with Ceremite White as the base colour to give it a very slight blue tone as often seen on snow during a dark cloudy day and highlighted with pure Ceremite White

 

up close in person you can see the colour differences quite well but it's still subtle

What color(s) did you use/mix for the RGC's grey on his chest piece, visor, and boots/bands??

Thanks

Ironhull grey (P3) as a base colour

and a mix of 2 or 3 parts Administratum Grey (GW) to 1 part Ironhull Grey to highlight

if i was going to do a really good job of this figure i'd probably do about 4-5 gradual increments of highlighting starting with a 1:1 ratio and and working my way up to pure Administratum grey for a very nice look.  But these are FFG minis and the quality is only "ok" but still a bit above average so i don't go too crazy with these figures
