Wip: Imperial Knight ( Imperial Knight part III)!

Hi readers!
First post of the second year of blogging! Well, here the Imperial Knight so far.


Above you can see the result till now, and now some intermediate pics and a final one with a different angle.



Using the airbrush makes easy and fast some parts that with the simple brush could take days and days.


I am quite pleased by the result of the grey: sometimes the airbrush is not very friendly, it clogs and spits, but the effort is worth imho and I add experience also with this technique. I like te fact that I arrived to black in shadowing, but frankly I do not now how I reach this, cause I did a lot of layers of black and a pair of grey, and the job took a lot of attention that I could not use in taking wip pics, sorry.

The metal is done as described. Painting the same part of many parts of a big miniatures or a group - like painting all the metal, then all the wood and so on- is faster but make the result very difficult to see in his completeness.

However I think this is not going to be very different from what you see here.

The to do list is the following: complete the metal, bronze, profiling, and finish the trims. After that, basing, weathering, and decorations etc.

I tried my classical glossy black, that with grey is quite nice: imho the result is elegant, must add dirty to this sir.



Painting a big mini is a long work but very rewarding!
What do you think?

  1. It's looking great.

    Nice work on the airbrushing. I did mine with a brush, and it took forever!

    1. Thanks a lot! I think you deserve some kind of a medal, doing it with brush is scary!

  2. Looking great as well...I also can't imagine painting this primarily with a brush. Stages with a brush? Sure. All with a brush? My goodness.

    Just applying the washes twice over two knights with a brush was tiresome!

    1. Thank you very much! Yes, I think also that with airbrush is also simpler to reach some results that with brush only are possible with an huge work. Also with great patience, above all, that is something that I miss. I can imagine, painting one is a long work, two is incredible, furthermore with the results that you had!
