Finishing off the backpacks, sitting listening to a conference call for work and figured it would be a great time to post a follow up.
Worked with some wet blending and shading on "cloth" overall I think it looks better in person then the photos, but either way I like it.
Hieroglyphics are surprisingly hard to draw at this scale in metallic paints, I am finding black thinned down is fairly consistent in flow when thinned with either “Flow Aid” and or water, however metallic paints don’t seem to flow with a good amount of stability. The result is the GW Shinning Gold ends up a little more blobby then I would have preferred but it’s still better then I was a year ago.
Break down of the Hieroglyphics, which are a hybrid of correct cartouches and a 21st century modification for space, left to right on the panels:
- Khepri’s Eternal Legion
- Amun’s Horde
- Anubis’ Squadron
- 2/3/2011 completion date.
The decal is a pre-heresy Thousand Sons icon I found off some older 1996 era Space Marine decal sheets, perfectly sized for the banner top.
As always feedback welcome.
