Death Korps Centaur Trash Cast
The Centaur model from Forgeworld is a lovely model. This incarnation of it is not. What is worse is that I think this model has 1000 coats of paint on it. Despite that, I had fun painting it up. Did I succeed in turning this model into something presentable? I'm not sure about that, but I think it could be embedded in a piece of terrain quite nicely now as a wreck and nobody would care. I'll do some more pigment and oil effects, and just maybe throw on some mud. It all depends how messy I want my workspace to become.
By the way, this is the first of my two salvage efforts. The other model is my original griffen which accompanied the first imperial guard box set I painted. I tried a harder on that model since it has impeccable lineage.

For the griffin, please post a before and after photo!
I wish I had taken one! It totally slipped my mind. I think that is one of hazards of failing to blog regularly. My 20 year old guard tanks were grey. My force was painted up like the box set, so grey with black and white tiger stripes. I saved some of those models, so I can post what they looked like.Delete
I always love seeing the before and after, as I feel that really showcases how we have grown as artists. Any example would be great.Delete
Also, don't post the before if its a golden daemon winner. Thanks :)
It looks fine....ReplyDelete
Seriously, I'd be quite happy to put that on the table.
That looks wonderful. Almost like it is cell shaded.ReplyDelete
John it looks awesome .. Most people would be ecstatic to put that on the table 8)ReplyDelete

Concur with the previous comments, the model looks good and I'd definitely be happy to field it!ReplyDelete
I appreciate that. Paint hides a lot of defects!Delete
Indeed it does!Delete
