Guardian 75mm by Black Sun miniatures.


Recommended Posts

It's been a long time since I painted a figure and I have had this Black Sun Guardian 75mm kicking about for far to long. So over the last few days I have put the figures together and built the base, adding a 3d printed staircase that I have distressed a little and made a small wire tree. I have not added the sleeping pod as I don't really like it. 

 

I was a bit heavy handed with the PVA/water mix but I think I will cover the grownd in static grass.

 

First round of primer done.

The paint job on the kid is fantastic! 

Cheers, quite happy with it as as today the optician said I need glasses for close up work like reading and painting.... 😱 🤓

 

Made a start on the robots cap tonight. A very warn leather cape.

Splendid start with the cape! Can you give details on how you did it?

Here are the paints I used, started with a base of light brown, then a good dollop of Guilliman flesh,  don't be shy when using this stuff it loves to be splashed all over. Then a working on the shadows while the flesh is still wet blens in some wyldwood. Let dry sponge on some Agrax, Nuln oil in the reassess, let dry then a bit of white pigment powder to highlight then back in with the Wyldwood in the low rips and edges to darken them. I will probably edge highlight with the light brown again. 

 

Hope that helps.

That is so cool! Lovely figures and you are painting them up a treat. The cape looks good, though I don't envy you painting that bamboo (?) framework over the top of it and the pauldron. I'll follow this one for sure.

Made a start on some colour so I could paint in the shoulder netting but really didn't like it so have ended up going with a slightly boring blue, I might add a green lower leg ( C3PO style) later on and I will be adding a blue/grey into the armour as well. Made some good progress on the netting and I'm quite happy with it but thinking of adding a bit of a brown wash/filter to it.

So most of the block colours are done and I have added a black/brown wash to darken the reassess, and I have made a start picking out out the pistons. I did add a bit of highlight on the left arm just see what it looked like and I think I'm going to go with it.

Picked up my first pair of spectacles today and painted the boys eyes in, bloody hell that was so much easier than it normally is. So I'm done with this kit now. Pictures later and a video if your lucky. 

 

Cheers Brian.
