Here's the ball. Couldn't get the core right, so went for a simple pj.



Ref is due any day soon, and THEN I'll go hunting for some MicroSet and MicroSol for the transfers...

Nice work. I have a team of these to do, and the Marauders. This is inspiration!

Thanks, I probably could have done better, though, if I had had the time and patience to layer each individual armour plate up to hightlights, but I think they'll do OK on the pitch as is.  :)

The base of the ball was replaced by a neodynium disc-magnet, btw; in that way it stays on the base of the carrier (because of the washer-base).

That's a nice sheen, I can't believe it's only a black wash. Look forward to the decals *cough*. :)

Ah, not quite:

Base Coat Mix: Vallejo Polished Gold + Black - gives a very dark, worn golden colour
Then Badab Black wash to shade the base coat a bit further.
Vallejo Polished Gold, heavy drybrush
Mix of Vallejo Polished God + silver, light drybrush. This last mix is the 'secret' to my gold painting - when layering it creates an even shinier highlight.

Nice painting!

Thanks!

I did read your blog post :P, I just didn't think it was the highlight, but the wash. I will try that for myself in the future.

Thanks - I had plenty of time to ponder about it  lol

I see, OK.

If you want a smoother look, start with an even darker basecoat mix, skip the wash, and layer up the colour instead - the gold on the second Rohan warrior on the following page was done that way:
