Welcome to part two of this post in my Tech Priest Dominus Painting. I am very excited to paint this guy up. Coming from Infinity the Game Warhammer 40k miniatures feel huge. I’m hoping that my abilities with painting have improved since the last time I painted Warhammer over 15 years ago. Let’s get started. Click read more to see the progression of this guy.
If you are new to how I do this each update I copy what I had already done and I add in the progress I made this week. When I am done it is a long step by step progression of the miniature.
I decided against the standard red color scheme and I went with purple. I haven’t decided on armor and highlight colors yet, but for now purple is going to be the major color. This was just the base coat on his cloak.
The thing I did was paint a light gray on all of the cables and legs on his lower torso. I am going to finish his lower half and then work on the upper half. It’s just kinda the way I paint miniatures. I start from the shoes and work my way up the miniature.
The next step was to add a wash in all of the ridges both on the cloak and on the cables and metal spike feet things. What even are those? If anyone knows please tell me.
I painted the pressure gauge thing white.
I added a golden metallic band across all of the cables and on the round portions of his feet claw things. Seriously what are those?
The last step tonight was to paint the ends of each cable a dark brown. I am going to highlight and perhaps change this, but for now. It works as a great dark base coat. I may do a chipping or rusting effect. We’ll see how it goes.
I was mostly testing the waters for a color scheme on this next part but I think I like where it is going. I added a blue color for the base of the armor. I base coated the whole armor.
Next I painted the tubes and stuff coming out of his face. I plan to do a bit of the glazing for this guy all at once so I am going through doing some base coats on various parts then I will glaze them all at once.
Next I painted some more details on the claw sticking out and I added some details to what looks like a pressure gauge on his stomach. I added a band of red on the claw. I actually really liked it so I think I may do the same for a few more of the things sticking off of him soon.
Next I painted a base coat of brown on his walking stick and on his pistol (not clearly visible in the picture.
Next I plan to work solely on his face. That way I can finish up all the cloth on the figure. I don’t want to do that until I finish his face. It is frame almost entirely by other things so It is much easier for me to do that part first.
That’s all for this post, but if you like what I’ve been doing please check out my Patreon site and support me so I can continue to dedicate my time to making this content. To my fans that play Infinity, don’t worry I’m still playing infinity regularly as my main game, but I want to get back into 40k.
