More Work in Progress on my Lamenters!
Today I have my Vanguard Veteran standard bearer.
But wait... Vanguard Vets cant have a banner! Who cares, when competing for Best Painted, you need to add flare wherever you can. So most of the squads in my army will be carrying a banner of some sort. :)
Here is how I did my Lamenters Chapter Banner.
First I sprayed it with Averland Yellow base color and gave it a yellow shade wash.
Then I painted the rectangular banner area with codex grey.
Then I laid out some lines using a detail brush and free hand. I eyeballed the distance and size of the squares, and just got lucky. It was just about perfect.
Then I painted in the black squares.
Then boom finished banner! :)
Actually I layered up to white, using Fortress Grey, Ulthuan Grey, and white.
Then I hand painted a circle sorta in the center with black, and relayered up to white using the same recipe.
Then I hand painted the heart on top of that with black again, then Mechrite Red, then some blood red and a bit of orange. I intend to give it some more love.
For the scroll I painted it with black first, then used Calthan Brown, and layered up using Tallarn Flesh and increasingly light layers of the new flesh and bone colors. I painted the world Lament on the scroll.
Feel free to leave questions or comments or tips! How are YOU doing your hellow I mean Yellow!
More to come!
