When I posted the first pics of my Deathwing Librarian, it was met with mixed reviews. I wasn't looking for rave reviews as much as I wanted to share with you guys how I went about painting him.
One of the comments was along the lines of "Why isn't he blue, if he's a Space Marine Librarian?" A perfectly valid question and one that made me realize that I pretty much failed at hitting the mark when it came to "showing" he was a Codex scheme Librarian to players who aren't completely familiar with Space Marine characters.
I've since gone back and added an Asurmen Blue wash to the model. I think it helps some, but I know that for it (the technique) to really work, I'll need to strip the model, perfect the technique and start over. I'm not going to do this, but I want to share how I go to this point with this kind of painting. In order to prevent the terrible huge wall of text, I'm going to break this whole thing up into a couple of posts.
First though, is a quiz...
See if you can answer what the following things are. It shouldn't be hard to do if you've been playing for any length of time. I've picked these particular items for specific reasons.
1. What creature is this?
2. What Space Marine Chapter does this dreadnought belong to?
3. What army does this specific jetbike represent?
Once you figure out the answers, try and figure "why" I chose these images in particular and what it is about them that makes them important.
