So I have finally finished(mostly) painting one of my favorite conversions that I have ever done. The Dark Apostle. First time doing some free hand drawing, with the help from a tutorial from another word bearer painter
A few things to note on him; His shoulder guards are not 100% done, on his left one I am unsure of what name to put in there, or even how to do writing on silver. If you know how, please reply! And his right I want to get transfers from Forgeworld to put on there but that will be in the distant future. Lastly I need to dirty up his book a little more. But its finished enough to post some pictures up and Ill revisit him a little later.
Bunch of pictures after the jump …
Just to talk about the various colours incase you came here to see how things were done (which I should have put in originally, sorry!)
The armor is Rhinox Hide base, Khorne Red and then highlights with Mephiston. Null in the recesses. Black Shoulder pads were Black + a bit of Eshin, then washed with Druchii. Silver is silver, no higher than ironbreaker though except for extreme highlights.
The bronze is Balthazar Gold, heavy nuln wash, Runelord Brass, then the brightest silver on the extreme highlights.
The cape on the staff was starting with screamer pink, working up Khorne red and then Mephiston highlights with Carraburg wash lightly to help blend it, the text was uthewan grey.
Flesh cape; Bugmans, Cadian, heavy mix of fleshshade and agrax wash, dabs of Druchii and Carraburg here and there. Black and Kislev mixed for the writing and skull. Better tutorial here for all of that though.
Hope you all enjoyed! Would like to hear your thoughts,
