Cities of Death- Honoured Imperium Statue WIP

Well it’s WIP month here at the Roost.  The Shrine of Aquila will not be enough for my Armies on Parade display.  I plan on including the Honoured Imperium Statue to the display.  Here’s what I have done so far.

Statue 001

I started with a base layer of Tin Bitz.  Then I bought Retributor Armour and painted that over.  That paint is a godsend.  Then I painted a layer of Burnished Gold.  The base is Mechanicus Standard Grey.  I am undecided as to what shade, wash or glaze I want to use on the gold.  I’ll finish the Shrine of Aquila first and hopefully I have an idea what colour I want to go with for the statue.

  1. Browns and sepias work good with the gold to shade it, then you can use some silvers for highlights.


  2. Good call. I have both. I’ll try it out. All my gold highlights have been a mix of gold and silver so I’ll do the same with the statue. The silver does a great job of cooling the gold down.


  3. Nice little job, I’m thinking of making a couple of statues of some dwarves for my tinkerings 🙂 ….what’s WIP
