Having finished my biovores and carnifexes, I set about working on my Librarian-- and he painted up much faster than I anticipated! I kit-bashed a new weapon and jump pack for him last week, and over a few hours this weekend, made rapid progress.
I primed the model black using vallejo polyurethane primer.
I then applied vallejo gory red to the robe areas.
Once the red base was applied, I airbrushed a mix of red and orange to create overall highlights, and then used a brush to apply shadow washes and detail highlights.
Here's the jump pack before I applied the washes and added detail highlighting. I kept the jump pack separate to make painting easier.
I simply need to finish the face and attach the jump pack, and he'll be ready to base. Definitely finishing this guy up this week.
