I have been working away on my knight acheron. I wanted to get it to a usable state whilst I await delivery of transfers to finalise the model. I have taken the odd photo along the way to show you some progression. This has been a really enjoyable process so far and I look forward to the final model being finished.
I had already decided to loosely follow the House Makabius colour scheme although I decided on a metallic brighter blue than the forgeworld example. To test it out I just did one shoulder pad. The airbrush finish on the blue and cream is so flat and makes me wonder why I would ever do it the "old way" again. At this stage no washes had been applied.
From here I upscaled to multiple panels including masking the shin plates to ensure a crisp line between the cream and blue. For info I use the tamiya masking tape range for this purpose.

Flamer tanks completed..... A whole mass of effects and mediums used on here. Airbrushed vallejo silver. Some areas airbrushed vallejo rust. Then washed with agrax and nuln oil. Drybrushed boltgun metal. Next I went in with a whole load of effects to weather it up using the products below.
So as usual with me after this point got really into it and picked up the pace now I was comfy with the colour scheme and techniques below is a picture of the knight as it stands. Still decals, weathering, base and many more little jobs to do.
What do you all think so far, any advice? Hope to have it all finished in the next few weeks.
