Triumph of St. Katherine – WIP Part_10 – Base, bier and Cherubs done!

One day without update, but that means I can do a sort of small reveal! The bier is done!

For the OSL at the candles, I extended the radius of the bright-patch to more of the horizontal surfaces, and lit up the center with pure white. Outside of that, I darkened the area by using some Nuln Oil and extended the exterior glow with some orange glaze.

Before and After:

It would have looked more realistic if I had glazed the orange towards the base of the candles, and not towards the top, as I did… Live and learn!

I went to town on the parchments! After an Offwhite drybrush and a layer of Satin Varnish (brushed) Then I mixed a bunch of decals, freehanded scripture and some drawn icons kind of representing the nature of the procession. Another layer of varnish, Aggrax Earthshade and called it done. The Cherubs… I just painted… They were all tied up using AK’s Track Wash. (enamel dark brown wash) lenses in Jade Green, cables with Contrast Black.

A look at things to come!

    Wow, that looks amazing. The blue glow from the hover engines (?) works perfectly. But does that mean that the cherubs are actually just there to stop the chains from drooping?

    1. Weeeell… In my mind, they move it forward, but they are certainly not holding the weight. The sisters also wear ear-plugs, since with that wingspan the cute zombie cyborg babies probably flap like hummingbirds… Spending a week on a model gives you ground to think about such nonsense!
