I more or less finished the sky steel nmm, pics show a few spots that need touch-ups. Not super happy with the frontal ridge, note to self: always paint the back of the sword first! The back came out pretty nicely. Then I went back and base coated the areas intended to be gold later with Muddy Soil. This is part of a new style I’m trying, where I work out larger gradients and then go back in and clean it up later, takes a lot more brush control! But if you look at the shield and the bracer, it really makes painting those a lot easier as one unit rather than small sections.
Hair, then gold, then touch-ups. Nearing the finish line for paint, then on to basing. Probably nothing extravagant, just building out the sculpted base a bit to practice with green stuff.
