After two weeks without any real time to spend on my Archangel, I finally got the time to sit down and paint the last two-three layers of the skin. I’m quite happy with how it turned out in the end. Wasn’t sure the scheme would work as well on a model as large as this, and I’m glad it did.
Next up are the wings.

I love the pics on your Archangel. How are you painting the membrane of the wings? I'm trying to improve my technique on my own Legion. Thanks.

Thanks! Glad you like it so far. I’m liking how it is turning out so far.

I intend to paint the membranes the same as I painted them on the rest of my Legion models (i.e. Gargoyles and Angelius). First I base the membranes with Rakarth Flesh, followed by a light wash of Reikland Fleshshade and then highlighted with Pallid Wych Flesh. Since this is a much larger model I might have to paint add a coat of 1:1 Rakarth Flesh and Pallid Wych Flesh after the wash. I’ll post more pictures when I get to the wings. Have to finish the skin first.

It has begun! Finally some (real) progress with the painting of the Legion of Everblight Archangel - the coolest model Privateer Press has ever done - and the model in the game with the worst animus Privateer Press has ever given a Warbeast. Still playable due to the Rule of Cool. At the moment mostly done with the base, so should be able to begin with the skin shortly.
