Dante WiP 2, pretty much complete

After a fair bit of painting activity this weekend Dante is more or less done. Pics aren't that clear I am afraid. Still need to get a decent camera so relying on iPhone for snaps at the moment. Anyway, Dante almost done. A few bits and bobs need tidying up, the holster, pouches and grenades but the jump pack is done and varnished.

Corbulo WiP errr 4 I think....Dante WiP 1

Getting to the end stages of Corbulo now. Started work on the med vials around his waist which should be finished tonight whilst the missus watches Big Brother (yay only one more year to endure the nightmare!) . Also started to get some base colour down on Dante. I am using Jawaballs Youtube vids as a guide with him as I have not had a lot of practise with metallics over a large area.

Corbulo WiP 3

Feeling like I am entering the home stretches now. Finished the Narthecium last night (more or less, I want to do a little bit more fine detail). I have also made a start on the vials around his waist which will hopefully be finished tonight.

Corbulo WiP 2 redone

Was looking at the chest eagle and really wasn't happy with the job I had done. Same with the eagles on the leg guards (gleaves?) so went back and redid them without a wash as I felt this left it looking too dirty. I did an undercoat of shadow grey, a first highlight of space wolf grey and then an extreme highlight of skull white (their vallejo equivalents, I forget the names at the moment)

I think it looks much better. Finished the grail chalice as well which I am quite happy with.

On a note I have noticed that the quality of the finish on my Corbulo mini seems pretty poor. A fair bit of the fine detail casting seems quite poor.
