Blood Angels Honour Guard

A friend of mine has commissioned me to build and paint him a Blood Angels Honour Guard to escort his Librarian (also to be built and painted by yours, truly) into battle.

This is the first completed model. Gold is a pain to paint over my Krylon Primer. A coat and a half of Dheneb Stone and two coats of Shining Gold is not good times, nor a fantastic way to paint a model quickly. The portion of time the model takes to complete is only lengthened by amount of Gryphonne Sepia and other washes applied to the model. The results are well worth it. Because the model's done in a metallic, I didn't bother with a highlight. And, of course, a coat of Krylon Gloss, and then Testor's Dullcote to finish 'er up. I don't know how my friend wants to base these guys, so I just did them in Calthan Brown.

That's all for now,

I recommend basing the model dark brown before painting on gold. You'll get a much better effect and not have to spend a lot of time applying multiple coats.
