Erahf's WIP Teams

Thanks LeadDiceandBeers.

I stuck with Citadel colours for him; mix of Teclis Blue and Sybarite Green for the base colour, washed with their dark blue wash, then highlighted up with base colour mixed with the new Bleached Bone equivalent, and finally ye olde Liche Purple for some more contrast in the shadows.

So it's been a little while since I posted here.. Had a spell where I lacked motivation to pick up a brush, but I'm back with another deadline looming to get me busy.

I've been working (or rather not working) on my second team since I got the Alchemist starter set Christmas 2015.. so it feels good to be getting some of them finished and out from the ever growing pile of unpainted minis on my desk. It's very hard to avoid scratching the hobby itch by buying more stuff when you're already lacking hobby time.

Anyway, here's an almost finished Vet Katalyst, and WIP pics of my Alchemist goal. Smoke and Flask are done too but haven't had pics snapped yet.

I love your work on Katalyst ! The skin is really nice and the work on the tubes is awesome ! 

It's fun to see that your goal pictures where taken before you painted Katalyst ^^

What have you used for the bricks on the wall ?

Thanks Aybarra, his skin was fun to paint! The bricks were from a thick sheet of textured plastic I picked up from a model railway shop a while back. Not sure what its intended use was, but I used it to base a Mordheim warband a few years ago and had a little left over.

So here's Smoke; not so pleased with her, but she's done and ticked off the list. Decided on bog standard grey smoke as I didn't want her to be overshadowed by a crazy colour around her, but think I could have done more to make it stand out nonetheless.

Here's Flask; also struggled to photograph his shiny metallics with my phone camera.. One day I'll try and improve my photography, honest.

And fresh off the painting desk is Compound.

I have a part-painted Vitriol to finish, then Harry, Midas and regular Katalyst to complete my 9..

Love your green and your OSL on the tubes ! 

I'll add a highlight on smokes hairs and gloves because they seems really dark. 

 

Could we have a first group photo ? :P

Yeah that sounds like a good call, I'll need to go back to her when the others are further on. I'll try and do a group pic later :)

This has to be one of my favourite looking teams on the forums right now Erahf. The facial work on Calculus and Smoke are really top notch, I do think you are being a bit too harsh on yourself concerning the coiling smoke, I really like it. The glow effect you have is really well done and helps to break up the dark palette you have gone for. Vet Katalyst is for me your best one though, top notch all over from skin tone (love the green hue from the luminous goo pumping around his system) to the worn metal work. Superb looking team.

Thanks Hyrune :) Think VKat was a Bugman's Glow base, shading down towards Rhinox Hide, with Caliban Green in the depths around his plugs etc.. then up from Bugman's through Cadian Flesh to some bleached bone highlights.

PS: Hyrune, does this mean you're back with more of your stunning work to show? :D

Can't wait to see what you come up with Hyrune!

I've finished my team for the tournament on Saturday now; didn't quite meet my target of 9, no OKat sadly, but glad to have more or less finished the others. Here's an updated group pic; I'll stick up pics of Harry and Vitriol later.

Thanks @Peterseven, the red was a mix of Rhinox Hide and Khorne Red, mixing up to Khorne Red with some old Red Gore, and a black/red wash for the recesses.

Here's my goal so far, still have the other side to finish.
