About the Project

This was my project during the 2019 #40kHobbyWeekend. Initially the project was supposed to be a combination of me and my friends' hobby projects over the weekend, unfortunately my friends were sick and could come over. I then at least tried to finish the project over the weekend, but that failed too because of health reasons. So I have now rebranded the project and it will just take as long as it's going to take me to paint it. With this model I am pushing my own painting skills somewhat and am trying to show off every step I take in getting the model painted.

I applied a drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Pale Sand (70.837) over the base. In hindsight I should have done this before I painted the candle stands, but a coat of Vallejo Game Color Tinny Tin (72.060) over the areas I touched with my drybrush fixed that.

Update #5

A coat of Vallejo Game Color Sepia Shade (73.200) over the belt and pouches to finish those off.

Update #5

All the Fleur-de-lis on the base are done with Vallejo Model Color Ivory (70.918).

Update #5

I coated the skull on the base with Vallejo Model Color Old Gold (70.878).

Update #5

I got the rest of the stone detail on the base painted with a 75/25 mix of Vallejo Model Color Carmine Red (70.908) & Vallejo Model Color Pale Sand (70.837).

I started with a little bit of the gold detailing I forgot the yesterday.

Update #3

For the cloth I decided to use some highlights, which I rarely ever do because I don’t like look of it. I don’t think they came out too bad. But I started with a base of Vallejo Model Color Royal Purple (70.810) and gradually blended it with Vallejo Model Air White Grey (71.119) on my palette. I added a drop of Vallejo Retarder Medium (70.597) to slow the drying of the paint and then apart from the first base coat I applied coats of shading from dark to light using a fairly wet brush so that there is some more water in it as well to help blend the paint in.

I painted the pins and metal bits of the frag grenades with Vallejo Model Air Steel (71.065).

Update #3

I painted some of the unarmoured bits of the suit with Vallejo Panzer Aces Dark Rubber (70.306).

Update #3

I got a basecoat on the base using a mix between Vallejo Model Color Sand Yellow (70.916) & Vallejo Model Air White Grey (71.119) at a ratio of approximately 75/25. This desaturates the colour a bit.

I put 3 coats of Vallejo Model Color Carmine Red (70.908) over the casing of the bolter and over the skulls, while only 2 coats were necessary for the wax of the purity seals and the candles.

I got the gold detailing painted using Vallejo Game Color Polished Gold (72.055).

Update #2

I got some shading over the face using a 50/50 mix of Citadel Shade Reikland Fleshshade (99189953027) & Vallejo Glaze Medium (70.596).

Update #2

I painted the grips of the bolter and the main body of the frag grenades with Vallejo Panzer Aces Dark Rubber (70.306).

I painted the paper bits of the purity seals with Vallejo Model Color Beige (70.917) and then I painted the beads with Vallejo Model Color Medium Blue (70.963).

This weekend I will be working on the Adepta Sororitas Sister Superior Amalia Novena.

My start.

I have the model build in sub assemblies and got those all primed in Vallejo Surface Primer Black (74.602).

My start.

I put the model together, no glue, and applied a zenith coat with Vallejo Model Air White (71.001). The model stays together really well like this without any additional glue or blutack.

My start.
