Circle of Orboros Celestial Fulcrum

So my new project is the battle engine for my Hordes Circle of Orboros army, the Celestial Fulcrum. I am pretty excited about painting this, which is why I didn't get any pictures taken from the very beginning, but it's still early in the painting process, so here they are!

Nice work Andrew, that stone is really sharp. What paints are you using. I like the hint of green/red I see (though that may be an illusion of the camera).

All of these colors are from Reaper. For the brown stone, I base coated with Muddy Brown. I did a heavy dry brush, more like a wet brush, with Earth Brown. Next came a medium dry brush with Leather Brown, then a light to medium dry brush with a 1:1 mix of Leather Brown and Golden Highlight. I then washed it with Agrax Earthshade form GW, making sure to lightly wash the stone surfaces and put more wash in the recesses. After that I dry brushed only the inside of the crater with Moth Green for a glow effect that will come from the fulcrum itself.

For the actual fulcrum parts, I airbrushed them with Moth Green, then over brushed with Stone Grey. I had to go back with Stone Grey to get into some of the corners and clean up a few areas from the over brushing. Finally, I dry brushed with Weathered Stone.

Great, thanks for the breakdown. The new washes are really great. I've been using Agrax Earthshade a lot on the Grular I've been painting. It's definitely my wash MVP.
