Marneus Calgar and Honour Guard



These models were crusty on arrival so some stripping was needed.
Thankfully these were the old putter models so I knew using break-fluid (bendix 55  if you have to know) makes it a simple matter of time.
After stripping had I only noticed the amount of detail on these: As far as highly detailed models these ones rank up there with the sternguard veterans.

Some bits from Marneus were missing: his head had been changed for a plastic one as as well as two other bitz (belt sword and rope bit) were missing.
The standard bearer's standard is far from perfect but to my defense I was getting tired of all the detail picking...so what if the lettering is nowhere close from perfect? :p
Nonetheless pleased about how this unit came out and hope you like it.













Hope you enjoyed!!
And until next time, happy hobbying!

  2. Du très bon boulot une fois de plus mon Cher Malthus (et ça rime !! ^^) mais je ne sais pas : j'aurai vu quelques lignes de blanc sur certaines arêtes, notamment sur la fig au cimier tout à gauche...

    J'ai l'impression qu'il n'y a pas assez de contraste... mais je peux me tromper à cause des photos aussi.

    Les métaux sont ils en NMM ou vraiment métallisés ? En tout cas ils sont très bien exécutés !! ^^

    Serviteur,

    1. Merci pour ton commentaire!
      Le manque de contraste est du au fait que la fig entière est passée au lavis noir (nuln oil), ce qui à mon grand regret a tendance à neutraliser les tons et le ligning blanc(présent à certains endroits sur marneus) n'y change malheureusement rien...you live you learn.

      Les métallique sont true metal dont voici la recette: balthasar gold(doré ambré) comme base, Auric armor gold (base/highlight), leadbelcher (boltgun metal) edging. Le tout reçoit un lavis de nuln oil.

      Merci encore pour ton comm!
