Continuing with the skirts, I finished out the Dusky Skin triad, to keep things simple. Similarly, I did the same using Clotted and Carnage Reds to finish the hood/sashes.
On to the flesh tones. For the dwarf, I used Muddy Soil, Dark Skin, Redstone Highlight, Tanned Skin and VMC Ivory. For the goblin, it was Black Green, Ghoul Skin, Moldy Skin and VMC Ivory. For the orc, Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, Snow Shadow and Ghost White.
Finishing up the basecoats. Metals based in Dusky Skin Shadow or Stormy Grey. Hood/scarf in Bloodstain Red, dwarf’s beard in Shadowed Stone.
Tried zenithal priming these guys with an airbrush…results about the same as a rattle can, with way more cleanup. Don’t really want to spend any time learning airbrush skills, so be it.
I then base coated the skin for each as follows: Orc, Twilight Blue; Dwarf, Dark Skin; Goblin, mix of Ghoul Skin and Black Green. Leather, skirts and misc were base coated in Dusky Skin Shadow.
Been wanting to get back into painting a mini now and again, probably nothing more than tabletop for a while. So I took a couple hours to slap some paint on this guy I had sitting on the shelf, already primed.
So I think I’ve mostly forgotten how to paint minis. Didn’t help that I snagged the wrong paper for my wet palette, it was a square of tracing paper, so it was a total mess!
What’s a couple years between WIP updates between friends? Dusted off this fine plastic model (ok, he was under a cover and not dusty). Spent an hour messing around trying to remember how brushes work. Some base coats and messing with how nmm works again…
The King’s Man is a nemesis encounter from Kingdom Death: Monster. He’ll show up and ruin your day at the ol’ settlement. Mostly assembled (left off the scabbard and plume for now, experiment in painting a disassmbled model!), pinned and primed.
Here we have some survivors from the Zombicide: Black Plague core box, Nelly, Samson and Silas.
A couple hours to get Silas off the bench. And taking the pics I realized I forgot to paint the gold on the sword hilt. Woops! So one more quick session with him later…
