Mrs Brevik and I went to see the Moctezuma (apparently "Montezuma" is wrong) exhibit in the British Museum last night - the exhibit was really good, but has the side effect that I now want to do a Lizardmen army in the style of the Mexica (apparently "Aztec" is wrong too...).
I don't need new army ideas right now...
No painting done so far today, but I've been trying out a few new things when taking pictures. I can't seem to get enough light, so even though these pictures are better, they're still a bit too dark.
This guy was painted a month or two ago and was an attempt at "better battle damage". I hadn't got the Modelling Masterclass book then, so I was still trying to paint battle damage on, rather than using the sponge method.
Here I used Scorched Brown as the dark colour, rather than using black, and it's a much subtler effect. I washed the greaves and feet a couple of times with watered down Devlan Mud to "dirty it up" a bit.
Lamenters are supposed to be a Blood Angels Successor Chapter who follow the Codex Astartes, hence the red helmet. The bolter was Chaos Black highlighted with Scorched Brown and Codex Grey - it's the paint scheme I'm using on my Legion of the Damned models, rather than the normal black.
