Hi everyone, today I’m happy to showcase my first completed unit for my Stormcast Eternals collection; a unit of Liberators. You may remember seeing them in my recent Golden Demon post in which they won a finalist pin. Click to view more photos after the jump!
I decided to go for a slightly different approach to my Stormcast to normal. I knew I wanted to do gold armour, but I decided instead of going for shiny armour I went for a dulled, burnished gold appearance. I opted for the Fists of Sigmarite colour scheme from the army battletome. The armour was painted Retributor Armour and shaded with Reikland Fleshshade, Agrax Earthshade and Druchii Violet – all thinned with Lahmian Medium.
I am particularly happy with their swords. I painted these Vallejo Silver, glazed with Gulliman Blue, sponged them back with silver for the appearance of chips, and then lightly dabbed on Blood for the Blood God with a sponge to give them that ‘in the midst of battle’ appearance.
I am really pleased with how they came out, and I’m looking forward to adding more to the collection. I think this project will be a slow project, I think I will be taking my time with them.
