Can't wait to see. I have purple planned for my main color as well, so interested to see how yours turns out!

Is was really wondering... Is there a reason for these... notches? I mean, it seems as if everx part of the Emissarius does not fit for about half of a millimeter. I didn't saw this a first while it was unpainted, but after a drybrush you can see this on every part. Arms, head, torso... Not looking very well I have to admit but with a continuousity (uhh... written right?) that it looks like it was designed on purpose...?

Getting a model this large to fit together is very difficult. Even the best designs cannot help you most if the time on an open stretch of skin. Lines can be hidden in other things like armor very nicely, but not on open skin. These line, whether by design or not, allow the hobbyist to putty these seams before painting.

depends on your skills... I know my greenstuffskills, so I don't try it. Also I started painting, therefore I can't chance it any more. Well... Who cares... :D

This is how far I came this evening. I think another one or two days of work on this guy, and maybe I will finish the emi bevor 2011! :mrgreen:

The blood is not working very well and I am not satisfied with it. It needs more of a splatter effect, but I will hve a closer look at this tomorrow!

I agree with you on the blood. Too cartoony. Good luck rectifying this. Maybe mixing a bit of brown ink in with the red paint. The rest of the model looks great tho. Nice job.

Now that I'm looking at it, where in the nine hells did they find suck a big "stick" It's way too roug to be a carved log, unless they wanted to carve oversized grain on purpose. seriously, the tree that that thing had to have come from... :lol:

As for how it looks like it does paint-wise, it's just drybrushed. Man you're easy to impress. :lol:

This is me just being jolly, so don't misunderstand. :lol: see the lolfaces?

Indeed. The more I look at it the more my physical sciences part of my brain turns off. I'm just not going to think about it... it's magical. :lol:

Okay, I admit it. I'm off playing Baldur's Gate thinking about it. Had to pause to come check the forums even.

Baldurs Gate... Good choice. I've played Baldurs Gate 2 more than ten times, and I am really thinking about installing it again now...! :)

Where the Emi got his skythe from, I don't know.You have to ask the designers. Well, maybe the Emissarius came out of hell, started killing everything with his own hands, got bored, took a tree from the battlefield and "improved" his skills in every battle untill now. :D
I have no idea how you could paint in in a different way, that it looks more like a "hellish" thing. I had the idea that maybe you could make the metal parts like they where glowing, orange, yellow and white, but this wouldn't look good on purple skin. Also his would be a problem on a wooden stick...

The wooden parts where drybrushed, as most of the modell was, this is the only way - in my opinion - to paint such a big thing. The wooden part was painted with GW desert yellow, washed with ogryn flesh wash. Then it was drybrushed with GW Kommando Khaki and GW Bleached Bone.

Use a airbrush?

anyway is it a dry brush of GW kommando khaki then bleached bone or a 1-1 mix of both?

The suspension of disbelief is something that I'm dealing with on a constant basis. Demons of this stature using a toothpick with wood grain bigger around than a horses hoo-ha, ballerina cockatiels with human faces in their bellies, etc.
:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

It's fantasy and I understand that. Spare me the explanation. I've plenty of experience beating up on "other companies" regarding their lack of model designing smarts. Apparently in the "other companies world" the more spiky you are the more evil you are. Have you ever thought about the implications of fighting in hand to hand combat while wearing a tabbard the length of a bride's train? Come on! And how in good conscience can you call it the most advanced armored fighting vehicle the universe has ever seen and not even include suspension? Let's not even talk about supposedly "elite" warriors and their total disregard for camouflage.
******sorry, random anti-"other company" rant. Forgive me.

*****back on track
I'd guess, based on the physical science aspect of that grain Emi is just a little guy where he comes from. I hear that everything is bigger in Texas. :D And being a little guy that gets beaten up a lot would explain his cantankerous attitude and nasty demeanor. (Although, that doesn't explain mine. Hmmmmm......... :? )

Keep painting. It's looking good so far. I can't wait to see it finished.

Who has an airbrush at home? :D I really thought about buying one, but well, too expensive for me. Maybe later!

And yes. Drybrush first with Kommando Khaki, then with Bleached Bone. No mixes at all. Too much work for me! ;)

Where does this cage with the small demon originally belong? It seems as if this is normally not used for the model, is it?

Well, before I buy some 20 Dollar Stuff, I better go for some quality. I don't want to work with an airbrush for about three times and then buy a new one because something is damaged.

But even without Airbrush, the Emissarius is done!

Really nice. Also love the purple. Was your technique on the spikes/hooves similar to what you described on the scythe handle? Looks similar but lighter and I really like that effect.

Thanks!

Yes, it was nerlly the same. I started with Bleached Bone, the a wash of - I think - gryphonne sepia (or maybe Ogryn Flesh? hmm.. Not sure), then a drybrush ob Bleached Bone and skull white. The hooves where not drybrushed, because they had not enough edges, but the colours where the same. :)
