The only units that have not received the 'glow' are the Warriors and Wraiths.
Warriors I am not sure whether to replace the glowing green plastic rods that they had originally were built with.. I was partially waiting to see how the rest of the army turned out, with the positive effect I think I have achieved with the rest of the force, I am strongly tempted to change them.
The Wraiths, well..I've just not gotten around to it yet!
Above you can see the whole force (most of it is more accurate!)
Let's take a closer look at the Scythes.. they look so good on the tabletop, I've even done one of them out as the Doom Scythe (which I am playtesting tonight)..
I am pretty pleased with these guys.. as to what's left - the 5th wing panel needs drybrushing back to gun metal colour, then the metal needs rusting and some highlighting.
I like the look of the weaponry, I decided that these would be painted in "firing mode" - We'll compare to the Annihilation Barges in a second, but I wanted the highlights to have accelerated to the tips of the weapons and the Control Orb in the cockpit to be literally blazing at the activity in the ships systems, you know flying and firing..
My favourites are the Immortals. I wanted these guys to look immense. They are, by far, my favourite unit in the codex with a Veil Cryptek. So effective with 2 units of 10. Anyway... I wanted to make sure they looked good.. I think I have nailed it.
Up close, you can tell I am still a noob with an airbrush and that I am still a player over a painter..
But that considered.. I love them..very pleased.
I think that they look the best from this pic below, a 'tabletop' distance.
This is how they'll be seen when you play against them, as they Veil in and blow away your entrenched unit before Veiling away under a shroud of darkness..
The models I am least pleased with are the Crypteks and the Overlords.
I wanted to do the same on the Staff weapons and Warscythes, but I just don't feel they worked as well.
To give you an idea, have a look at this last image:
I did vary the technique and try and focus the glow from a focal point - from the energy pack on the back of the Staff weapons, this made it look that the energy was coming from somewhere and radiating out,.. but meh.
I need to work on those..
Now to the Deathwing! Respray from Bone traditional to a pastel Blue... hey, it looks good!
