Well there is no arguing with that :D

Eagerly awaiting the Ghostkeel. Your work is quite inspirational (and award winning too ;))

Haha. See, I kinda like that.

Not to denigrate your choice of green by the way. Your Tau are quite the inspiration for me. Everything is so crisp and professional. Plus the way you combine the drab military colors with the blue glow from the suits' engines and anti-grav... doodles... is really stunning. I tried to replicate the glow but I just couldn't get it to look right.

I return after years of lurking just to say your models are phenomenal.
I knew from the moment I saw your Fireblade (at 5am last night) that there was a Golden Demon standard painter approaching...
Can I beg you for advice? :biggrin: On those beautiful gradients all the armour plates on your tau have, for instance?

Perisfal, your color scheme is very, very similar to one of the ones I'd love to do. However, I just can't quite figure out how to pull it off so nicely. Would you be so kind as to list what colors your use - and perhaps even do a tutorial someday on how you do it?

@ O'rioles: I do not planning any tutorial about my blue glow. Colors for it are on this thread. Try to copy some point from the back of riptide. There are big circles on the sides of legs and it is nice showcase how to place highlights.

@ catland88: Welcome back! Look at building of the Crisis Suit and the Riptide. There are some hints for that in the texts. In short, airbrush and blending.

@ Orpheus Hangar: same advice as for catland88, please look at the start of the thread. A lots of progress photo and used colors you can find there.


And for the my new XV95. Cleaning is done. Black basecoat is done. Some airbrushing of greys is planned for next days :) Sorry no progress photo for now, all parts are simply black :)

The Ghostkeel is completely basecoated. After many hours of cleaning and preparing it is time for the fun! :)
Drone on the left side has some parts painted as a warm up for me. Drone on the right is only basecoated as rest. Yea, no green on this model ;)

Parsifal, that looks great!
Really stealthy.

How did you get that effect, taped off areas with an airbrush?

However you did it, it looks great, and will really make the Ghostkeel stand out from the rest of your force.

Really slow progress on the Ghostkeel :) The old Stealth suit for comparing.
