PAINTING: Angron Finished!

Well I have finally finished my Angron model and got around to taking some better pictures of him.

I decided against adding the second marine to the base that he is killing since I thought it made the whole thing to cluttered and I liked the asymmetry that leaving it off created.

This model was a lot of fun to paint, even if it took me months. I will admit that I lost a little bit of steam once Angron himself was done and all I had left was the display base, but thats how it goes as a painter. Some days you are painting one of the Emperor's sons, other days you're painting a handful of rocks.

The World Eater is a mid-tone of Ulthuan Grey highlighted up through white and shaded by mixing in Charadon Granite (man I love that color). I did it this way so I had somewhere to go with my highlights since if I had used flat white as the mid-tone then I would have painted myself into a corner.

The blue is the same recipe I used for my Ultramarine Tyranic War Veteran I entered into the Golden Demons in 2012. It actually makes me want to paint more Ultramarines, its looks great, is fairly simple and the smurfs were my first army in 40K.

I think his face is one of the best I've done, which is kind of surprising since I don't feel like I spent that much more time on it compared to my standard models. I followed the exact same recipe I normally do so it must be because of the sculpt as well. Forge World sure knows how to pack in the details.

I also took some picture with a white background but I think I prefer the black, it makes the colors pop more. If you like the white background I will post up the rest of them at sometime.

Be sure to vote for him on Cool Mini or Not here.

If you have any questions let me know in the comments.

Until next time,
