Genesis Chapter Captain finished!

Finally, I have finished my AOBR Captain! Sorry it took me so long, as always I was busy in real life, and I couldn't find the one hour necessary to do the basing for like a month... Or maybe I could but I just didn't feel like it? Just kidding, let's take a look at the masterpiece:

Captain Severinus in all his glory.

OK, now seriously. I really enjoyed painting this one; regarding the details I think it's the best model of the Assault on Black Reach set. I love the beautifully crafted bolter, so I decided to play the model with Hellfire Rounds upgrade. Also, I want him to be as good in close combat as possible, so I'll count the sword as a Runic Blade upgrade; to make it feel less like an ordinary power sword I painted some germanic runes on the blade:

Painting it wasn't too hard. After basing the model black I painted the blade with Boltgun Metal and highlighted it with Mithril Silver. After that, I gave it a heavy wash of Asurmen Blue to achieve a power weapon effect. Then I had to carefully paint the runes, first with Badab Black, and then with Mithril Silver. It was quite an experimentation from my side, but I think it was worth it!

One thing I loved about the model was the flag. It's well detailed and it gave me an opportunity to finally use yellow instead of gold - which is cool, because yellow was the original secondary color for the Genesis Chapter!

Painting the loincloth was pain but the result looks good. It's pretty much Skull White on Astronomicon Gray base, carefully washed with Gryphonne Sepia, one of my favorite washes.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the model! Thinking of it, my Assault on Black Reach set is nearly all painted - all I have to do now is one Deffcopta and a bunch of Slugga Boys. I'll have to make a collective photo of them all when they are done! Also, I have a squad of Space Marine Scouts here ready for basing and transfers. That will most probably be my next post.

See you soon and thanks for reading! As always, any feedback is most welcome.
