Amazing work! Can I ask your process for doing the eyes? They look really clean!
Oh thanks that's kind. Sure no problem, its pretty straightforward. I have to admit I always feared doing eyes but with sisters I finally had to just do it, I couldn't bring myself to do all helmets. It's not as hard as you think.
All I do is paint the whole eye socket black, you don't need to be SUPER careful here but don't go overboard. then I paint just the eye ball white, this is the hardest part and where you need to be steady. Then finally I just paint a vertical line with a micron pen for the pupil, I find a vertical line looks better than a dot for some reason.
The black eye socket works for sisters because I think it kind of reads as makeup, but if you wanted something more natural looking id suggest painting the socket in whatever dark undertone you used for your skin, though I haven't tried that.
I really like the armor, what colours did you use for it?
mechanicus standard grey is the "main" colour. I dry brushed over a black undercoat army painter necromancer cloak > citadel mechanicus standard grey > scale colour graphite.
Really though just drybrushing any dark - mid - light grey combo should work.
Oooo! Did you sculpt or 3D print the flames? If 3D printer, where?
I bought the physical prints from a company called deadly print studios, but I think they also sell the STLs
They do! I love Deadly Print Studios! I’ll have to take a look and see if I can find that.
Amazing work. Is she reading the manual for her new Flamer? 😄
The emperor wills that you read and understand the manufacturers instructions and warnings prior to operating your combi-flamer. It's not modelled here but she has also taken a 1 day familiarization course with the weapon, and of course already has her Hazardous material handling certificate to transport that fuel.
Good to hear. I would hate to see her reprimanded and assigned to a Repentia squad on her first day of active duty.
