WIP: Chaplain with Power Fist

 Here are a few updated photos of my Chaplain with Power Fist. It seems like it takes me forever to finish anything these days. I suppose I have been so very busy in the real world that I have precious little time for the miniature world. Nevertheless, this Chaplain is nearing completion.

I used the black and red party-colored pattern of the Angels Sanguine on his Crozius Arcanum. This, along with the base, will tie him in with the rest of the Army for a unified force look. I tried the black and red crozius on my Chaplain in Terminator Armor, and I really liked it. So, I decided to continue the pattern with this Chaplain.

Of course, he is magnetized to accept either a backpack or a jump pack. I need to finish up his base, and touch a detail or two. Nevertheless, I fully expect him to be ready to join the force very soon.

Let me know what you think. Your comments are welcome, and thank you for reading.

Looks nice and clean, but the power fist looks off because the base and highlight colors are backwards. When you want something to look like it's glowing, the center needs to be the brightest.

Check out the FTW series on OSL for a whole lot of good tips.

Very nice! I especially like the red/black on the Crosius... I used the older one with the bolter as the basis for my own, and he leads out my Death Company regularly... Though the new rules making his old weapon a "Power Maul" made the base version pretty good against everything not in 3+ or better armor... But lots of things are 2+ these days, so Faust is REALLY nice to have... Really liking the crisp highlights there on the armor edges, looks great!

I really appreciate both of your comments. Thank you for reading, and thank you for posting.

Also, thank you for the link to Ron's tutorial over at From the Warp. He does excellent work. I was following the pattern for blue with extreme highlighting. However, I have not varnished the model (as the base is not complete), and I may very well try the object source lighting on this power fist.
