My interest in the Storm Wardens has always revolved around their Tempest Blade units. The idea of a group veteran marines wielding massive two-handed weapons challenging enemy champions on the field of battle was on one hand absolutely ludicrous, and on the other it was incredibly badass. Each marine constantly seeking out new challenges to overcome, new knowledge about their world and themselves, even if it kills them. In any case, the point for me in this piece was to work on my ability to correctly place specular highlights while painting. The lighting set up of the image and the prominence of reflective metallic surfaces on the Storm Warden provided the plenty of opportunities to work on placing those “highlights”.
