Lychguard Theme and WIP Pics

I finally decided on the theme I'm going to use for my Lychguard. I also improved the painting on the blue bits (added black lines where applicable) and made the faceplate much lighter.

The sword will be a simple pair of red-orange-yellow gradients with dark red inlays. It's simple, I will be able to make it consistently look alike across models, and fits well with the army.

Experimenting with Lychguard

So I've been working on my Lychguard for a while, then went on a trip, but I am back now and hope to paint more regularly.

While the Lychguard itself are straightforward to paint, I'm having trouble deciding on how to paint the weapons and the shields. So I tried I bunch of stuff and thought I'd share. Still thinking about it.

Here's the overall theme (work in progress still)

And here are the shields and weapons. I painted just the front of each shield, and painted each side of a weapon differently to try things out. I think I like blue shields most, they look the heaviest and sturdiest, and think bright orange weapons go best with it. Still thinking about it.

Second Ghost/Doomsday Ark Done!

Not much to say here. There are bits that need repairing - I really raised the standard of my painting since painting the first one. I fixed a bunch of things on the old one after painting the new one, but there are still places for improvement that I noticed only after taking the pics.
