Filigree Gone Wild: Primarch WIP #2
With oils cleaned up, I blasted the model with ultra-matte varnish and began working on highlighting the gold. There is a vast amount of work to do on it, but even in this mid-way state, I think the model is coming together. I'm going to add some greens to the shadow areas of the gold which should provide some further depth, but for now I am satisfied with the progress.
The plastic base that comes with the model is too busy. I could base him like my old Ultras, but I think I'm going to base him similar to my SoH. That means tossing the plastic base, and putting him on a dirty rock/cement outcrop. The only thing stopping me at the moment is the cool eagle head rubble piece that comes on the plastic base. I think that might look nice integrated into the replacement. Does anyone like the plastic base this guy comes with?
