Getting toasty over here as my heavy flamer-wielding Mortifactors Terminator has just marched off the assembly line. Another week done and another Termi is done – just two more to go now!
Each time I finish one of these bad boys, I’m reminded just how good Forge World are. This is some of the most simple painting I’ve done in ages on the Mortifactors project, and yet they look so good. My photos don’t do them credit (sexy ones to follow when the squad is complete) and yet they still look great (if I do say so myself). My ‘techniques’ are pretty du jour now, and relatively simple to do, but the model beneath is such a great sculpt that I don’t have to do much to make them look great, and that’s awesome sauce. I like to think I try though. 😉
On the heavy flamer itself, it’s a gosh darn sexy bit of kit. Of course, being Forge World, there was a bit of difficulty putting it together, which you wouldn’t think was possible given that it’s only two pieces, and yet they managed to accomplish it with a wrist guard that was a bit short and needed some green stuff to get it on there. It’s painted very simply, but I’m really happy with my brass-effect on that barrel. The main colour is a blend of Auric’s Armour Gold and a touch of Leadbelcher, and then Auric’s Armour Gold to highlight. Simple as you like, but I’m pretty happy with it.
Here are a couple of other shots for you to enjoy. All undercoated black, Citadel Paints used throughout, and painted using a W&N Series 7 Finest Sable 000 brush. Onwards!
