How'd you do the fade from white to red on the pinchers?

Looks awesome but I've not been able to do a hard fade like that.

Thanks!  In the case of the claws I painted the entire claw in Spattered Crimson (Reaper 09277), and then worked from the claw tip back when putting on the Karak Stone (Citadel).  I used a "sort of drybrush" style at the edge of the transition to red.  Since this picture I have done a wash of 50/50 Nuln Oil (Citadel) and Reikland Fleshshade (Citadel) which blurs the transition even more.  I am in the process of highlighting the red shell back towards the "elbow", and the business end of the claw towards the tip.  I'll try to get some new pictures up soon.

Pretty sweet, Sidewaysmonkey!  You've inspired my TW1K.  I wasn't sure how I wanted to do mine, but seeing the contrast in how you did yours is pretty neat.  I will leverage the techniques in my rendition.  Keep 'em coming   8)

That's cool!  I'm happy to hear that my pieces are helping other MYTHers!  Here's an update...

Cool!  I can post up a full list of colors, mixes, and washes that I used if anyone is interested.

Don't bother on my account.
I'll make adjustments anyway.

Thanks though.

I'd be interested assuming this is just something you can post and not have to go and create.  Just curious more than anything.

I keep a log book of all the colors, washes, and order that I do a piece in, so it's really no trouble at all.  Just a matter of typing it up, which I had planned on doing at some point anyway. 

I worked 68 hours in the last week so, as you can imagine, I've done almost no painting.  I'm now on vacation starting today.  Ahhhh....

I want to finish up that Terror and then try my hand at a redskin or blueskin mucker.  Haven't decided yet.

There's a simple reason for that, the Acolyte is the only hero that I have painted so far!  I have put a few base colors on the Soldier...  Maybe I'll do him next before I do another mucker.  I also realized that I never posted any good pictures of just the Acolyte...
