First thing first, his sword, which i'm very happy with
As you can see, i went just like what most people do, but with a small twist ; i highlighted the spot near the blade pure white, to give it a different effect. I think the final result is very good, especially on such a big surface.
Next, i worked on the NMM on the black part. I don't really like to call it NMM, since i'm not trying to copy any metal color, but its the best description i can give it.
It's still very dark, but i think its working allright ; it help pick out details from a distance. Up close, its not that impressive, but i'm not aiming at Golden Daemon anyway so...
And the final look ;
Red is obviously not finished, but its the only red that will be on the model.
Exhaust will be painted differently. I'm thinking brighter, maybe with a blue "burnt" effect
Lots of details left to do, but so far it's very fun to paint.
Next up will be some detailing, maybe some Gold.
