Hello everyone, it’s Amy here again with another showcase of my Ogre collection. This time it is my Ironguts!
The Ironguts were a really fun unit to paint, there is a lot of metallics and I used this opportunity to try out a few cool techniques. I used a lot of weathering to make their weapons look chipped and rusty. I used Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust to create the rusty effect on the weapons, and then finished them off using Runefang Steel on a sponge to add chipping effects. I also used some Nihilakh Oxide on the banner.
Here are two photos of the backs of the models which really show off the skin, especially with all the armour on the front of them.
Let me know what you think about them in the comments, and have you used them in AoS, they’re very strong! I’ve got another unit waiting to start painting, and I can’t wait to start!
Thank you! 🙂
I think you need to work on the less dominant details.
The one model has the cord and cloth the same colour as the bone its attached to.
Another has the bone very similarly painted to the leather of the bag its poking out of.
On the banner the ice looks good but then i feel the skulls let the whole thing down.
You can have aspects like the ice and skin take center stage but you cant ignore the other details which is what i feel you have done here.
I think you need to build more contrast within the smaller aspects of the model and make them stand out.
Thanks for the suggestions that's helpful, I've not been doing this long so I'm still learning, so I will take that on board!
Love the ice effect looks great 🙂
