Heading into 2022 with Black Templars!
Here we go with a hobby update based on something I didn’t think I’d revisit (again)!
I sold off my original box set of Templar infantry figs that I painted, and ended up using the funding to inevitably buy this….
And so far I reworked my original recipe and wanted to go a little darker, a little more “Blanchitsu-ish”.
So here’s the result:
So I realize now the picture doesn’t show a lot of the work on the armour and especially the pigment work. You can see a lot of the damage/sand pigment is on the armour, tabards, and cape of the Sword Brother:
Most of the highlighting has moved to zenithal, and mostly with shading, and less line work. I enjoy this way of doing ‘darker’ or ‘damaged’ marines and adds some realism.
The Sword Brother of the Crusader Squad:
That was a fairly time consuming squad, so I’m hoping to stream line some of the techniques to make the infantry a little more… manageable in the long run.
That’s it for now. Thanks for checking it out.
