This is a Lord-Celestant model from Games Workshop's Warhammer Age of Sigmar range of Stormcast Eternals, with a shield from another model replacing his hammer. He's basically a space marine in a fantasy-style setting, and every time he dies
I'm proud of my work on him, it's the neatest base coating and highlighting I've done so far and the gold has a few layers with a hint of purple, and some purple as a spot colour on the belt and some straps.
I mainly chose him as an excuse to try out some turquiose colour (mainly GW's Sotek Green) - it gives that fantasy, bubble gum feel to the model that's a contrast to some futuristic and historical models I'm working on.
Unfortunately my photography has let the work down - I need to do some reading on other things to try so I can level up that skill. Does anyone have any good articles, or tips to suggest?

Well Sean, you have really done some great paint work with this fellow. I have to admit the whole "Age of Sigmar" thing doesn't work for me, but your pride in the outcome here is justified. This guy looks ready to smash stuff and people to bits in a very righteous and dramatic fashion. The colours look great, and the effects are excellent. He has come down from the stars to smite in style!
I struggle with hobby photography as well, so can't really offer any useful tips, but a number of the Challengers are pro photo takers, not least of all Curt, so I'm sure they will chime in with some info. The lighting is the trickiest part for me, but there are some great apps out there which can help with that once you have the photo to work with. Others will have much better advice, I expect!
Points-wise, bulky as he is, he still fits in the 28mm range, so he will add five points for your score. Great work - is there a larger Sigmar force brewing behind this fellow, or is he the last one?
