I don’t like painting guns, as I am not sure how the light should be reflected on the metallic and how those should be properly highlighted. The problem is that this Bolter will be probably the centrepiece of the model and has to have absolutely best paintjob.
Due to this – I had some problems with the NMM on this, as well with the application of scratches – and I really don’t feel those are looking good now. Moreover, the metallic parts were actually already painted two times and I have feeling this will not be the last one.
But – I am pretty happy with how the red turned out! There will be some minor corrections of the scratches, but probably this will not be repainted ; )
I corrected the shoulder pads shades – increased the smoothness of transitions as well as added Yellowed Bone by Reaper Miniatures as mid tone. Moreover, I corrected the right shoulder pad free-hand, as the Imperial Fist icon seemed to grey. Simply glazed there with Black.
