Back in 2012, I attended the Games Workshop Games Day. I didn't know what to expect and was a little underwhelmed by the experience. Being at the mercy of trains also meant that by the time I arrived, I had missed a few of the participation events.
I did however come away with two of the event exclusive miniatures - the Second Edition Blood Angels Sergeant / Captain and the Forge World Imperial Enforcer.
I liked both of the models so I bought them, and then proceeded to file them away with the rest of my 'cool' models and forgot about for nearly two and a half years.
Recently however, I have just moved house and when I finally found time to paint, these event models were some of the first that I came across, so I decided to finally give them a paint job they deserved. The Captain is still in progress, but here's the Enforcer and his trusty hound.
As usual, the photos are taken from my phone with a less than optimal set up, so apologies for the poor quality.
The colour scheme is pretty simple and none too flashy. For his trousers / shirt sleeves, I simply highlighted from an azure to white and his carapace involved different shades of grey, I don't think I did much shading on the model apart from the usual metal work.
The hound involved a lot more shading. I painted the entire coat in Vallejo German Grey then gave it a black wash before picking out the highlights. I then gave it a brown wash, picked out the highlights, then a sepia wash before highlighting for a final time. I then picked out areas for the browns and highlighted accordingly.
Finally, when I managed to unpack it, I used one of the large resin bases I got from the Citadel 40k Basing Kit to make it look that much better.
I'm not sure how I'll use the model, probably as an Inquisitor that is hot on the trail of the Cult.
