This is a model that has been washed in Agrax Earthshade, the aquilla painted in Gehenna's Gold then washed in Seraphim Sepia, which is a brown wash. The wash on the aquilla brings out the individual feathers so it's not just a gold mass on the front of the armor. By leaving the arms and bolter off, the torso is so much easier to paint.
Before gluing the torso on to the waist, I sand down some contact points for the glue. This will allow for a better connection and hopefully add to the model's durability.
Second torso constructed, aqullia painted and washed.
