Jeez, that menilbonean is ace ! The bronze to black amrour suits very good. It gives both the noble aura which fits menilbonean and the dark aspect of a chaos worshipper. That with the caparisoned horse => WINIf you don't mind in the future, I'm very much intersted in your recipe for that brilliant metal on the armour and lance, I guess a lot of washes are implied but I'd love to hear it? it's just excellent. The glowing eyes add just the right contrast with the horse skin.
Thank you very much. I wished I had more caparisoned horses but this is the only one. I have quite a few undead once though which will be painted soon.I'll see if I can take some pics next time I do a bronze armor. I do it a bit different each time but this is a quick guide for now how I did it on the melnibonean:1) Base of black and bronze2) Thinned out wash of black wash3) Highlighing with black and more and more bronze until pure bronze4) Painting in more shadows with very diluted black (not wash)5) Glazing with red glaze (I use the new GW once which are great)/Hans
These are truly great. I especially like the new one. Seems very evil and chaotic in very different way that we're used to... Very creative! Love it. More, please! :)
That is a very nice compliment - thanks! More is on the way.../Hans
Very original and creative work of art! Like the idea with the pointy helmets very much, esp. with the scythe guy, gives the rider a distinct evil look. Might going to nick this one if you dont mind ;-)
Thank! Quite like the pointy helmets too. I was afraid they would look too elfish but I think they turned out chaotic in the end.Thanks for stopping by /Hans
And by the way: Just found your blog and there is some seriously good stuff there. /Hans
They go together well. like the pattern on the caparison.
Thanks Sean /Hans
