Another short update today, with all the D-weapons that the new Elder codex has introduced to regular 40K I figured now would be a good time to finish my Shadowsword and roll out the big nasty D.
I approached this model rather like I would a terrain model like a building, I airbrushed it all in Castellan Green so it would match the rest of the Imperial Guard army and then based the tracks and weapons in Vallejo Game Air Steel. Then I added a wash of Agrax Earthshade to the recesses and Nuln Oil to the track and weapons, I then cleaned up the hull with a drybrush of Castellan Green. At his point I felt that things were still a bit clean so I added some Typhus Corrosion to some key areas like the rivets and larger recesses. I then gave the whole thing a drybrushing of Necron Compound followed by Ryza Rust and finished things off by painting the recitals, headlamps, Lascannons and Heavy Bolter details in black and the Aquila's in Balthazar Gold.
I do plan to add some regimental details in the new future but for now its ready for action and I can get back to painting Lorgar.
