Captain Gloves

I finished the Night Lord Captain! I am most pleased with this mini and want to show him off. While I was painting him, I tried out a couple of new techniques I have picked up while browsing the internet.

The first one was a tutorial on Pinterest of all places and involved the jump pack jet. It focused on where the light should be to create a glowing effect, which I think came off rather nicely:

The other was the shading to give his armour a sort of sheen, and to ensure it was coming from one direction. I think I have achieved this to some degree on the finished miniature but again, this is something I am going to keep practicing. I built the colour up using multiple thin laters and all in all, I am pleased with the outcome.

The last thing I added was the lightning. I thinned down some ice blue and with a steady hand and a references picture, I painted it over the dark blue where I thought it would look cool. I believe I succeeded in that.

He also needs a proper name, a task I have entrusted to an expert of the VIIIth. All in all, I am considering this guy done.
