This is my latest work and also my first finished mini for project "Space Marines On Display" that I introduced on my previous post. It was painted with Vallejo Model Colors, and I tried to use a different and exotic color that I've never done before like this pair of purple and green. I used VMC Royal Purple for the cloak and I mixed the green for Dark Angels from VMC instead of using GW caliban green, because it's too much bright in my opinion and not match with my taste. :) Also, I changed my usual colors for the NMM Gold and Silver by followed HopeRiver's tutorials and used the same colors as she did. As well as the freehand painted on the cloak, I used the same method as she described on her tutorial for painting and blending freehand on the cloak. I'm happy with the results and thanks to HopeRiver for sharing these useful tutorials.
Empire General Step-by-step Part2 - General (Painting Cloak)
The base was made from pieces of plaster and real brick debris, and added some copper wire and scrap parts from Space marines in order to make it has some story on the base. The painting and weathering was done with VMC acrylic colors. This was the repeating process of wash, glazing and blending technique until I satisfied with the result. I used VMC Stone Grey and various shades of brown and sand for the base and painted the space marines parts in Chaos Space Marines Black Legion color scheme.
