About the Project

Updates and photos of the models i've completed for my God Kickstarter pledge + Hephaistos for Mythic Battles Pantheon 1.5. Project is likely to be more completed models than tutorials, but we shall see. Comments welcome!

Heracles

Finished up Heracles. A great model to paint and as before the majority was done with Contrast Paints. Guilleman Flesh for the skin base layer and Skeleton Horde for the robes. The time saved meant extra highlights could be applied, which is something I normally skip.

Really digging the whole brown model look, without the usual array of vibrant colours, meant it was easier to combine colours and make them sit well next to each other.

First hero completed is Achilles.

I went for the same gold technique as on the Spartans, using a silver metallic basecoat and then a coat of Nazdreg Yellow contrast.

The blue robes are 2 coats of Aethermatic Blue Contrast.

While i’m not painting solely with contrast, I’m learning and experimenting with ways on how they can be incorporated to speed up painting, saving time for more stages of highlights that I would have skipped previously.

Next up are the Spartans. The skin was done using the Guilliman Flesh contrast and I loved it some much it’s now my go to skin paint. The spartans have had some extra highlights added to improve the quality of the skin, but that contrast paint is great without.

The cloaks were done using a Vallejo Red Air paint, using a brush, and is becoming another go to technique for this painting project. The models are all being primed zenithal and then using super thinned paints (or regular air paints) to apply over the top. It creates some great detail and doesn’t waste the zenithal approach.

I’ve also found my now preferred method of gold armour, which a metallic base coat covered with Nazdreg Yellow contrast. The gold armour seen of these models is entirely this process, no other steps added.

One more thing i’m really enjoying is the fact these are all one off units and/or models. There’s no need for the write down/remember and replicate an army wide colour scheme. Once they’re done, they’re done!

First Unit: Infernal Warriors

Ignoring the project title image, which is of things to come, I present the first unit finished for the game. The Infernal Warriors, which are classed as a troop.

I wanted to try and some contrast paints and started by using Blood Angels Red on the skin. This gave an `ok’ effect, but I then spent the time saved by using contrast to get to a basic (or battle ready) stage and applied some extra red and orange highlights. The bone coloured sections were done with the Skeleton Horde Contrast paint.

Let me know you’re thoughts…
