WIP Dark Angels Belial Conversion part 2


Progress on Belial continues.. I have not been really painting anything since working on this model back on Saturday. But for some reason I had a twitch of motivation to play around with it a bit more last night. Mostly thanks to the comments and how to improve the model further.

As you can see, I have kept the blue/black sections, but refined them a bit further. And the green parts I have darkened up further with Caliban Green washes. I think having it a lot darker made it a lot better for this model, and I am feeling a lot better about it.

You can see the black sections that are pure black.. those will be all silver metallics. Dark silver, but still silver all the same. Hopefully it doesn't throw the model off any more than it is already is. It is already sitting with too many colors as one person says to me ( you know who you are! ).. but I am not used to just dealing with a single color or 2 for an entire model..

Am not sure if I will go darker on the cloth areas as they are very bright at the moment, which is OK for me, but could be darker to fit with the theme more. Will see when I have the metals on the model also.

So more photos below, and hopefully I will get more comments on what people think of it, and how I can improve it further!



Still not sure how I will tackle the wing parts yet. But I have time for that still I think..

  1. The paint work is looking good, I find the wings really strange on the model!

    1. Thanks Fran. Well the wings are a bit "odd" but then again the massive sail like banner/book he had with 4x4 flood lamp thingies were also strange on the model. So I figured this is the lesser of 2 evils :)

    1. Gracias JD
      Yo quiero imponer más sombras y contrastes de los trajes, así que espera a ver que pronto. Probablemente cuando vuelva sobre ellos para suavizar las transiciones. Suficientes colores simples que se utilizan aquí, así que debería ser capaz de hacerlo sin destruir todo mi trabajo :) veremos si hahaha!
      Apreciar siempre sus comentarios aquí! Mantenga venir!
      ¡Gracias!

  4. Looks nice so far, I'd keep the robes light, they are traditionally supposed to be bone colour ala Deathwing.

    1. Thanks Brummie. Indeed I have gone with the light cream color for them. Normally the colors would be inverted, but that much cream on the armor was not doing it for me. This is starting to finally work out my way though :)

  5. Greens and Blues now work much better together. Darkening (looks like it on the picture) the green was the right idea it seems (and it is still recognizable as green which I think is important for a Dark Angel) :)

    1. Thanks mate. I toned down both colors, but will now move back to doing contrasts on them to make them pop more still. Will see how that turns out, but am glad that the coloring is coming back to reality so far!
