Here are the promised images of the biker for my space marine scout bike. This is my first attempt at painting yellow power armour. More pictures and details after the jump...
I found getting the smooth yellow base coat from which to work was the hardest bit. I undercoated in grey so I wasn't working up from black but even so it took quite a few thinned coats of base yellow to get something I was happy with. After that the painting with washes (this time seraphim sepia) went quite well, allowing me to build up some nice gradual colour changes as well as hard edges. The highlights were done with screaming skull.
I'm quite pleased with the freehand chapter badge and checks but remind me not to do a regular pattern on a double curvature surface any time soon.
The chest eagle was done in red with a blue wash to contrast with the yellow armour, not strictly Lamenters but kind of fits with the blood angels successor thing. The bike itself is nearly finished so hopefully I'll post the completed model fairly soon.
As always please feel free to post any comments or questions below.
