A Master of the Chapter - Part 4

Today was rainy and bleak, and so I didn't head back to Toowoomba from Brisbane.  With not a lot going on, I decided to complete the Masters of the Chapter set.  Unfortunately with the rain and clouds there was not a lot of natural light, meaning I had to rely on my indoor lights and lamp.  I really prefer natural light, but you must use what you have.  I'm still struggling with anxiety and other issues, so I am a bit frustrated at the lack of a steady hand.

The final Master of the Chapter wields a Power Sword and a Bolt Pistol.

Raw metal and plastic pieces. Body with Power Sword, head, arm with Bolt Pistol and backpack.
Chaos Black undercoat.
I did the arm holding the Bolt Pistol first.  I used Boltgun Metal for the body of the weapon, Shining God for the shells and upper weapon and Burnished Gold for highlights on the sight.  For the body, I decided upon a green cloak with a Burnished Gold trim.  Fairly standard colors were used for the accessories and adornments.  The head was tricky as I needed a very careful hand for the teeth in the open mouth.  I was a little unhappy with the white ropes; I had a bit too much paint on the brush, and the upper rope looks a bit rough.

Painted pieces.
I was pleasantly surprised when the iPhone camera put a square around the face.  Always a nice sign.  I glued him together, and there we have the final Master of the Chapter.

Unfortunately I don't have all four Masters with me, but I did have with me the Master with the Thunder Hammer from the previous post.  So here are a couple of shots of the last two Masters together.

Not sure what I will do next.  I have some other Space Marines to put together, however I may head to the store to see if there is anything else interesting to try.

  1. I'm very glad to see some painting again...these really look good. I think the painting skills have definitely developed. It doesn't matter that it's been a while.
