Lorgar Aurelian: Part 3

So I finally finished Lorgar. With one big exception: his cloak. Upon starting to assemble the model, the cloak wouldn't even come close to fitting. Short of hacking away at it madly, I have decided to leave it off until I can figure out what to do. Anyway, I am very pleased overall, however I think I will slightly darken the area around Lorgar's eyes as they don't stand out enough for my tastes.













So three Primarchs (including the repainted Angron) in a week or so. Very pleased. Funny enough, Lorgar is the first Edgar Skomorowski (I think that's how you spell his name, apologies if I'm wrong Edgar!) Primarch I have worked on, and it was quite a bit different to Horus and Angron. His armour is more simplistic in regards to trim, but the textures are very organic, unlike Horus and Angron who are very smooth and mechanical sculpts by the great Simon Egan.



Smash face Warmaster, smash face.

  1. Aww yeah - looking hot mate - bloody fantastic effort for your weeks work (around Real Life commitments too).

    You've also shown me you can get great, effective results using some pretty basic techniques, once you know how to use those techniques correctly.

    What are you using as your matte finish?

    1. At the moment the Tamiya TS-80 Flat Varnish spray is my choice as it doesn't cloud up on the miniatures, and that is the most crucial factor.

      I'm glad you've enjoyed the posts, I think the advanced wet blending on Horus contrasted nicely with the simple techniques of washes on Lorgar, but you never know these things until you reach the final product.

  2. Nice colour choices maca but your painting lacks any real advanced techniques or weathering, it's just high school level really. Disapointing from someone whos styling themself as a painting authority and judge.

    1. That is true, Lorgar seems pretty basic. However the use of oils on the base was something different, and Horus used a lot of wet-blending. I have judged painting before, however it does not mean each and every model I paint has to be the pinnacle of painting. So long as I aim for a particular goal and achieve it, I'm happy. Could I paint NMM and OSL? Sure, but if it's not the look I want, then why would I do it? I'm glad you think it's high school level, I wasn't a very good painter in high school, so this seems like an improvement.

      In short, if you want more advanced and fancy, look at Horus, if you just want a pretty model done economically, look at Lorgar. Thanks for the comment and I hope you enjoy your day, Macca
