Hi everyone,

as I had to finish my M.Sc. I had little to no time for painting. So sadly I could´t finish my Reaver Jetbikes (but now they are on their way Wink ). I only managed to finish a birthday present for a friend. He asked me to paint up his Lugft Huron. Normally I don´t like painting metallics, but this model was fun to paint. Hope you like it. Feedback is appreciated.

Michael

Excellent work Michael, really! Very clean and neat, with natural looking highlighting. The face looks great.

The critiques I can offer are that a) the highlighting on the back of the standard is hard to see, it maybe a little too light or it may just be the photo, and b) I would consider adding a burnt effect to the end of the flamed with some copper and blackening.

Cheers.

Hi Gobsmakked,

your completely right. The Highlights on the back could be a bit better. On the original model, they look a little better, but now that you mentioned it, I would paint them a little more intense. Perhaps on the next model. Wink

Do you have any pictures on the burnt effect? Would love to see more. I want to buy some pigments in the future. They should be great for such oily or burnt effects. Perhaps I´ll try it out on my Raiders and Venoms.

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Michael

Great looking Huron! I'd agree with Gobsmakked, some weathering on the end of the flamer would be good. I usually do it with a very simple drybrush of Tin Bitz. You'll be surprised how big of a difference it makes! Perhaps his Crux Terminatus could also stand out a bit more (though it might just be the lighting in the picture).

All in all though, it's a fantastic looking model!

Thanks for the feedback. Perhaps I'll try to weather the next flamer. I'm really looking forward to use pigments. They should be great for weathering.

Pigments would be great. Like Siticus, I also usually use Tin Bitz - dry brush some on the end half or two-thirds of the barrel, darken it by adding some black towards the muzzle and lighten it a titch by adding some copper or orange towards the middle.

Here's an example of a heat-stained barrel from FW:

Another method is described on From the Warp:

Thanks for the pic and the link. This should help a lot. I'm trying to finish my Reavers this week. Pics will follow.
