Harbinger of Damnation by GruntJoe Harbinger of Damnation by GruntJoe
Not everything in this world is nice. For example, the Harbinger of Damnation is bound with 10 powerful Demons that constantly thirst for blood and death. One shot from this weapon, striking anywhere, is enough to sunder one's soul from their body and immediately send it to the blackest depths of Hell, no matter the level of taint on the victim's soul. Originally forged by a rather unknown cult of Diabolists, it has since been captured by the Templars and is used only in the most dire of circumstances.

Turns out, I made this on a lark. It's my first attempt at hand-painting and not just using spray paint. Hope y'all like it!

It's surprisingly streamlined. Long, but sleek.

This looks like its based from a nerf maverick i think, its an awesome paintjob/modding and if you crafted the base thats even more awesome!

Actually, it's based on the Nerf Spectre, a Walmart-only gun. The're five shots instead of 6, and they come with a stock and a barrel extension. I had a fun time painting it, though! My first time hand-painting, though. Everything else was just spray paint, though that did get to be kind of a pain.

You're off to a good start! I have some metallic red on a Spectre nerf project too, it's a great color for that gun.

Well, I figure black, red and gold just about always go together, you know? It's really a winning combo, lol.

You ARE writing these stories down, right? Wouldn't do to have such epic ideas in your head and no way for anyone to read them.

Honestly, I had no clue what the background story for this one would be until I started putting it up here. It just kinda flowed out while I was looking at the picture.

Not bad at all for a first go with hand paint. The color choices are great and the brushwork is killer clean, too. The red looks just a little smudgy, but you can fix that with multiple coats, or by doing and undercoat of gray under the red. You can also reduce some of that shine with a spray matte or satin coat, if you didn't use one already. Overall, good job!

Thanks, for the compliments and the advice! With the red, I was actually going for the look kind of like those parts were coated in blood, so I didn't let the unevenness of the coat bug me. All I can do is keep improving!
