My Iybraesil Autarch is finished as of today. It was a lot of painting, and in the future I could see myself going back and doing more on highlighting and such, but I’m pretty satisfied with it.
The paint scheme included a lot of colors. The base was done in two layers of Catachan Green, with some highlighting drybrushes of Goblin Green; the stone was covered in Codex Grey and drybrushed with Fortress Grey. The Autarch’s armor was painted thus: 1) Layer of Blue Ink; 2) Layer of Hawk Turquoise; 3) Another layer of Hawk Turquoise; 4) Highlighting in select areas with Hawk Turquoise/Skull White. The cloak was successive layers of Skull White and the cloth/parchment was Skull White, watered-down Sunburst Yellow, and Bleached Bone (Chaos Black emblem). The faceplate and the background of the runic heirogram on the Jump pack were done with a few layers of Regal Blue. The gems were the same as the Dire Avenger: Blood Red -> Fiery Orange -> Skull White. Fiery Orange eyes, Bestial Brown straps, Chaos Black Avenger Catapult, and lots of Shining Gold and Chainmail for ornamentation.
Now, any ideas for a name?
Working on: the nine remaining Dire Avengers (with two exarchs), a farseer, and a Falcon Grav Tank. That’s not counting all of the Guard, of course.
