Lord Macragge revisited (Pt. 3, bringing some colour up)

Aha, so as I told you last monday, I've been working a little more on the blue bunch of throne room guys. Still can't show them totally finished, but at least you can see them a little bit better.

You can get the basic shapes here
I went as usual in these cases, from bottom to top. So a dark blue base (a mix of prussia blue and royal blue) and them up and up. The rest was just a matter of adding colours, you know ;)

Well, I hope now you finally get an idea of what I'm trying here!
My idea was adding some contrast, so clear colours, not too flashy, but bright enough to make them look a little bit oldschool, you know.

We're looking ultra-blue
So getting closer and closer to the desired end state
I've realized what I was missing here. A proper banner for the throne room. The Calgar kit provides me solution to that issue though. Working on it, working on it...

    1. ¡Jaja, gracias! No es para tanto, estas minis son horribles, estaban pidiendo a gritos trabajo de conversión. Ahora con color se empieza a ver un poco mejor hacia dónde va este proyecto...

  2. It's really getting better and better. The mixed gloves work fine along each other, wasn't sure at first but with the paint one, it's not an issue. Great idea !

    1. Thanks! In fact those gloves were may main concern too :S
      I wasn't quite sure at all about how these were to come along, but fortunately the bolters and add-ons made their work and, once painted, they seem to look in place. I still may add a couple of ornaments from the Marneus Calgar armour, so still to be seen how it all turns out!

    1. Thank you very much! I tend to enjoy everything that is different from the usual stuff, so this tiny vignette presented itself as a chance I couldn't let go! More to come in a few days!

    1. Thanks! The idea for this is paying somehow tribute to the ooold vignette, so even with these minis I'm trying to keep the spirits.
      Slow progress as I'm simultaneously working on my Epic stuff and other minis, but I hope I' finishing these in a reasonable amount of time, given the circumstances, hehe.
