So, a little late info about a quite recent miniature I painted – Knight of Dol Amroth from Forge World.
The Knight was painted with TMM (True Metal Metallic), in roughly 20-30hours. The miniature was bought during Warhammer Fest. GW’s new LOTR line is, really, one of the best series Citadel release recently. I am now waiting in honest anticipation for Hurin The Tall.
Which hopefully will be available soon! I also considering converting him a bit – to build my own custom Aragorn.
(The photo below, has a bit better colours – as I used a grey background for it)
Anyway, I decided to buy the Knight of Dol Amroth set and see for myself, how the kit is done.
For this miniature I decided to go with TMM. During Warhammer Fest I spoke with Paweł Makuch (this year Slayer Sword Winner) – you can find his profile here, as well as people from Eavy Metal team and decided to try out painting metallic. Each of them showed me their works and I was astounded how good metallics can look live.
Some time ago I was told to try out the Scale75 metallic – hence I had the paints at home (although un-opened) and was ready to have a go.
What is worth to mention about Scale75 – the paints work really well; first metallic I was actually able to glaze with. Although, in terms of gold colours – I feel, that GW Retributor Gold is better than what Scale75 offers.
White elements were done with Linen White by Reaper, Shades were done by adding Grey paint, lastly the deepest elements were painted by adding Cantabric Blue
This is exact same method as in Trajann Valoris:
There is a couple of miniatures on my desk now, and I am still not sure, what to paint. I vary between Eisenhorn, Dark Eldar or a Tzeentch Demon prince.
We shall see : )
