Ave Dominus Nox!

By TheGraveMind

So I haven't had much urge to paint recently. It is one of those things similar to Working out. Once you forget how much you enjoyed it, you think of it as work till you start again. Well I finally got the itch, but want to paint something random and new. Thus this was born....

I already had a possessed marine with a blue base layer sitting around and I figured id paint him up nice. I decided on a night lords scheme as it would let me practice painting gold, and some lightning effects.

Once I started I found out my primary gold was old and dry, but I had some other shades to work with so I think it turned out well enough.

Some of the last bolts of lightning I think turned out really well. I think if I did it again I would make more and smaller bolts. I'm happy with how this turned out and now will be testing it on power weapons most likely.

I do get the irony of painting a possessed marine as a Night lord, but he was a spare model I had laying around. I'll probably end up doing some more touch ups and such on him, and he'll be added to my collection of one offs that I do every once and a while. I call them my Rogue Gallery. Eh, I'm a nerd.
