Awesome nice job!
Hey cheers for that, for the stone colors if I remember properly I just painted a base of celestra grey and then washed it with nuln oil, then gave it some grey highlights followed by a wash of both agrax earthshade and anthonian camoshade (no need for waiting for them to dry, they blend better if wet) and then gave it a final highlight of I think administratum grey. All of the paint layers were thinned down a lot by either lahmian medium (when I wanted consistent smooth color blending) or with water (when I wanted a good blend but not so smooth); smooth meaning the resultant texture appearance. I´m sorry I explained myself so badly but it´s hard without pictures . Then I painted the cracks. About the bronze I read I think in warhammer wiki that gold was reserved for the slann only, and for the rest they used bronze.
Yeah its what I thought, adding brownish colours… it gives it an awesome ancient-feeling tint.
The bronze sure looks awesome, gold everywhere gets a bit saturated lol
Is my converted starseer
Not my work, but an amazing conversion of a skink priest on a palanquin, posted by Kolekcjonerk over on pinterest.
I won many 8th battles with Tetto'Eko… and many AoS Battles with the Starseer.
No matter how you play him, He's exceptional.
I finished him only yesterday!
Bot quite as good as yours but wanted to Show him(Kuoteq'eko)
With out Hover Throne
Not your average starseer. My kitbash.
Here is my sotek obsessed starseer conversion I've recently finished
Here's my converted starseer. Wanted him to look tiny on a large throne.
Good job on one of my fav models!
Tetto'eko's appearance on the battlefield heralds events of such importance that heavenly bodies have been known to realign themselves in his favour. Those sensitive to the skeins of destiny can feel its precarious balance as well as sense Tetto’eko’s uncanny ability to shift the winds of fate his own way. At over a century old, Tetto’eko is ancient for a Skink, yet his mind is quick and his unprecedented ability to predict the future only seems to improve. The Skink Priest was spawned when the true moon obscured the cursed second moon; this was previously seen as an ill omen, but with the coming of Tetto’eko it has now been pronounced as a sign of good fortune. The Mage-Priests have also proclaimed that the Old One Tepok has blessed Tetto’eko and granted the astromancer his unfathomable foresight.
By Tetto’eko’s predictions, many dire events have been averted before they were allowed to happen. It was Tetto’eko and his precognitive skills that defeated the Skaven forces that massed once again at Quetza. It was Tetto’eko that pointed the great Chameleon Skink Oxyotl towards the hidden enclave of Skaven Assassins that was waiting to ambush Lord Mazdamundi. It has been said that the Lizardmen have never lost a battle with Tetto’eko present. Recognising Tetto’eko’s unique ability, the Slann Mage-Priests have gifted the Skink with his own palanquin to carry the Chief Astromancer’s frail body. So famous are Tetto’eko’s predictions that he is afforded the same reverence as a Slann - the Temple Guard bowing low as the Skink hovers across the city to attend to his many star-viewings.
The Eye of the Old Ones: As stellar alignments draw near, Tetto'eko can see opportunities for his forces to exploit in the future.
The Stellar Staff: Atop this staff is a mystical orrery with which Tetto'eko can alter the trajectory of passing comets.
My kit bashed Skink Starseer.
Awesome work on the detail for this.
