Karandras finished

I finaly finished Karandras. I also finished the exarch's chainsabres. I really liked the way these guys came out. Really easy to do, and quick to finish. I used graveyard earth on the shoulders, washed with devlan mud, then highlighted with graveyard earth, and then a final highlight with devlan mud mixed with sunburst yellow.

The chainsabres should be fun to try against imperial guard, orks, tyranids etc. Especially since he is with karandras who can use his claw when needed.

WIP Karandras

Here is Karandras that I have been working on over the weekend. I love the paint scheme. I think I will paint my Tyranids in the same colors. Still need to do some finish work and of course the base. I wanted to tone down the monstrous mandiblasters and paint him in a dark, shadowstalker-esqe paint scheme. I can't see someone being a shadowstalker with bright yellow and green armor. Thats how I saw him at least. I like how the brown shoulder pads turned out. It makes the armor look ancient. I still need to do gem work, and more finishing on the black and dreadlocks. So far so good.
