With the release of Malign Portents for AoS, it would have been rude not to pick up one of the cool new models for my Grand Alliance!
Obviously, all 4 of the Malign Portent models are great but as an Order player, I went for the Lord-Ordinator. This guy was a pleasure to paint, I took my time painting him and I especially enjoyed painting something other than annoyed tree folk :)
So, lets go through the colour scheme and process!
As per my usual process, I applied the base coats and highlights before a final shade layer. On top of a black primer layer, the gold armour was base coated with Retributor Armour and then zenithally highlighted with Auric Armour Gold and Liberator Gold.
The black was painted Vallejo Model Air Black and then highlighted with Eshin Grey and Dawnstone. The collar of the tabard and paper (purity?) seal was painted Rakarth Flesh and highlighted with Pallid Wych Flesh and White Scar. The inside of the cloak and other white details were painted Celetra Grey and highlighted with Ulthuan Grey and White Scar.
The lower tabards main section was painted Screamer Pink and highlighted with Pink Horror and Emperor's Children. The rim of the tabard and shoulder pad was painted Kantor Blue and highlighted with Alaitoc Blue and Hoeth Blue. The final main colour, silver, was painted with Vallejo Gunmetal grey and highlighted with Stormhost Silver.
Finally, his head and arms were painted with Bugman's Glow and highlighted with Cadian Fleshtone and Kislev Flesh.
At this point, I glued together the various sub-assemblies I had the model split down to.
Once glued together, I gave the model a coat or two of Vallejo Gloss Varnish and applied various washes of Dark Tone, Strong Tone, Soft Tone and Flesh Wash. All of these were mixed 50/50 with Quickshade Mixing Medium.
As for the base; I recently saw a fantastic scheme for the bases on the Stormcast Eternals Shadespire Warband over on Tale of Painters link here so I used the colours mentioned in that guide.
I'm super happy with how this model came out. I think, without doubt, he's the best model I've painted.
