'How I paint' Series: Seraphon, Stegadon and Engine of Gods

A Bit of task, but I wanted to paint these at the same time. I used the bases to do my tutorial on painting the bases for the army, so I done these first.

I then started on the Stegadons themselves. Sprayed both Chaos Black, they were very easy to build as are most new plastic kits from GW.

The First Stegadon which will be used as the regular one with a Bow on top (my theory is this is a younger Stegadon therefore its colours are brighter) was base coated in Stegadon Scale Green. 

I then drybrushed all over with Caliban Green, Starsnik and a light dry brush with Praxeti White.

I glazed the belly and Skin with Macragge Blue

Drybrushed the Scales with Troll Slayer Orange

Followed by a Lighter Drybrush of Fire Dragon Bright.

The Stegadon being used for my Engine of the Gods on the right, base coated on the scales with Khorne Red, the washed with Nuln Oil. I followed the GW video of Archaon on Dorgar for the belly, it is Rakarth Flesh dry brush followed by a base of same colour. Then a wash of Agrax Earthshade, followed by dry brush of Rakarth and then Praxeti White. The scales were then drybrushed with Khorne Red, Mephiston Red and Evil Sunz Scarlet with a focused dry brush of Wild Rider Red on the top of the crest on its head.

View so far.

So here they are the finished articles, no WiP pics of the tops as they are simply gold and stone effects, the Skinks are covered in the other painting articles I done. Hope you like.

'How I Base' Series: Glowing effect under cracked earth

I have been asked quite a few times on how I paint my bases for the Seraphon army, I wanted to do this as a separate post, and to make things easier I decided on doing a YouTube video. Below is the video, if you prefer to watch on YouTube app or their website, please follow this link.

'How I paint' Series: Painting Seraphon, Salamanders and Razordon

I took a break from painting the Seraphon to catch up on reading and also painting the Green Knight for my Brets. But I'm back on them now and decided next up would be the Salamanders and Razordons. 

They are resin models, so took a little time cleaning them up and getting them right, but after this I primed them all with Chaos Black.

I used Stegadon Scale Green as a base for the Skinks, Eshin Grey for the Razordons and Troll Slayer Orange for the Salamanders.

I drybrushed the skinks in Averland Sunset, as well as the scales on the Salamanders.

I then drybrushed the skin of the Skinks with Skink Blue, Origi Green on the Bellies of the Razordons, Etherium Blue on the Skink scales, Razordon Scales and Salamander bellies.

The Skinks skin is glazed with Temple Guard Blue, their scales with Maccabre Blue and their crests with Evil Sun Scarlet.

I glazed the belly of the Razordon with Caliban Green and Spikes with Abbadon Black, the Salamanders were a mix of Eshin Grey and Evil Sun for the bells and Troll Slayer Orange for the Scales.

I then highlighted the crests with Wild Rider Red, Pokey sticks with Dryad Bark and Metal with Leadblecher.

I then glazed the Fin with Averland Sunset and washed the whole model with Crimson/Lahmian 50/50 mix

I started the bases by painting them blue and adding random sotek green patterns.

I highlighted the Salamanders with lighter variants of the colours and painted any small armour on them

I painted the claws and teeth of all the creatures using Zandri Dust, Agrax and then a watered down Ushabti Bone.

I then added the Agrellan Earth to the bases and left 24 hours to cure.

Once it was fired, I painted up the bases and they were finished!
