Hi all! I wish you a happy new year and may all your hobby dreams come true… During the end of last year, I finished this Stormcast Eternals Champion on Dracoth. I call them the “Silverlions”. I wanted to use a reduced colour palette of silver, gold and red tones. I changed the weapon arm a little bit for a more dynamic pose and used a head from the Legio Custodes range.
Maybe this model will lead to my 2018 Armies on Parade project but I am not sure yet. What do you think? Leave a comment below and happy painting in 2018…
Thx?? had a lot of fun doing this as a test model; more to come i think…
This is really fantastic. Would you be able to explain how you get that colour transition from light to dark on the underside of his cloak? Is that simple layering, 2 brush blending etc? I can never get such a smooth effect whenever I try something like that.
Thx ?? it’s done by layering. Basic color is Deamonette Hide mixed with Flayed One Flesh and later on Pallid Which Flesh and White. I applied about 5 layers all in all. I always thin down the colors with water.
Thanks for replying. A follow on question if you don’t mind – what ratio paint to water do you use?
That’s freehand ? close to a shade. Then you‘ll have less pigments in the color thus it will be more transparent. This way you can reach a smoother blend. The more layers you apply the smoother the blending. Pro painter apply some 30 layers. For me 3 to 7 layers are enough?
That silver is awesome! Perfect blend of shine and weathered, looks like finely polished but still used plate mail, great stuff!
Thx, i used Ironbreaker Air washed with Agrax Earthshade drybrushed with Stormhost Silver. I then applied very thin layers of Druchii Violet in certain areas. I always use black primer with zenithal white.

Love the dynamic pose the conversion gives this. The head perfectly sells it – great aggressive pose, nice job!
