Hey guys, today I can present you the finished Sanguinary Priest, a kitbash I made by combining Death Company, Blood Angels Tactical Squad, and Command Squad bits. It was a lovely model to paint, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Check out more pictures after the jump.
The pale cream armour was basecoated with Pallid Wych Flesh, then I painted P3 Hammerfall Khaki in the recesses for shading (Karak Stone should be similar). For the highlights, I mixed Pallid Wych Flesh with white for the first step, and used pure white for the final highlight. Everything else follows my Blood Angels tutorial.

I love this mini so much, absolutely perfect component selection and posing. He looks great now he's finished! That bone-white armour is stunning.
I'll have to try out that hammerfall khaki tip, I'm going to order a pot of that – I've wanted to make a Star Phantoms kill team for a while, but I'd never quite found a satisfactory armour recipe.

That is a lovely colour, makes a nice alternative to the bluey based off whites I've been using.
The final product looks amazing and super clean, as usual!
For my own part, I usually try to go a nice dark red, similar to the Khorne Wagon's blood in the 4 cylinders, for the blood/gems on BA models. I try to use a nice burgundy for transitioning from black-ish to red-ish with a little Bloody Red to the HL areas, plus the white reflection dot and gloss varnish.
Also, the pink really stands out too much, in my opinion, on the white/off-white armor; I also find my eyes focus/zoom on only the pink details while going over the model. Would going back over with a red glaze help to tone down those areas?
Again, excellent paint job, just nit-picking 😉
Love the Pepto-pink details!
I love the pops of color that make sure that the white of the armor doesn't wash itself out.
Lovely work man!!! Just WOW!!! That pink is a good idea. Cool home made model!
I tried my hand at this scheme on a SoB last night. The Pallid Witch Flesh/Karak Stone is an easy combination, although my hand isn't nearly as steady as yours.
Man … that is such a clean paintjob, I feel dirty just by looking at it. Thanks for sharing anyway! 😀

It's great. Very clean & smooth. I like the splashes of purple in the cords, vials & seals. It's a nice pop of color, but it doesn't distract from the pale armor.
