Hey all, a very quick post today for three Drop pod’s for a Blood Angels army that I have been working on over the last couple of months.
I quite enjoyed working on these as they are the first Drop Pods I have worked on. Assembly was a bit nasty one, but with a fair bit of fiddling about I pretty much got them to close almost properly. For the Blood Angels ones I used Vallejo Fire red as a base and built up various tones of brighter reds towards the top half of the model. All the models I hit with Mig weathering powders and washes of heavily watered down GW Desert Yellow. For the Death Company Drop Pod I made a stencil for the red cross. What do you guys think?
Absolutely stunning. These look exactly what you'd expect of a craft that's been repeatedly dropped through the atmosphere.
that's a really nice gradient on those. is that the iawata paints again?
Zab, yes. Those are the same paints mixed with some Vallejo reds.
I really like the red ones. The black one a little less. I think that the surfaces that are not red on the red one should also be not black witj the black one. I mean the pistons, and the silver surfaces at the top and in the middle.
The weathering on the red ones is also stunning, They look very used. But i missed that on the black one.
Can we see inside?
They look great btw
I don't have as I had to give the models away..
They look really nice!
Any chance you guys will make any more tutorials? I am not painting/playing myself, but I used to 15 years ago. Now, from time to time, I am just enjoying watching you pros paint.
Wish you would make a tutorial with chaos, where you are using metallics and reds.
PS I love your realistic, gritty, style. For me, personally, it is my favourite one. Great job, and once again, would be awesome if you guys could make more tutorials.
