    Outstanding work on these rotten undead, the skin tone is absolutely perfect, and the blood makes them freaking gross. May I ask, what do you use for blood effect?

    Thumbs up for giving them away for a good cause. :winkthumbs:

    Thank you Metalchaos! The blood effect is Tamiya Clear Red with just a little bit of black. It is strange stuff. It dries glossy, but also straight from the pot is thick and kind of sticky after a short while. I applied with with a brush and flicking it off a toothbrush for the splatter. I have used it as a dripping effect in the past; it's not durable unfortunately. You probably could glue something to the model and paint it over that to get something that would last a little longer. I have also heard of people mixing it with UHU glue to get the stringy effect a bit easier.

    I really love that skintone, care to share the recipe?


     Thank you, Glitterwolf! It's pretty straight forward. The base was Moldy Skin, wish progressive shading with Ghoul Skin (surprise!), Carnival Purple + Ghoul Skin, then deepest shading with Blue Liner. The highlights were Bloodless Skin followed by Maggot White. I hope this helps!

    I dedicate most of my free time to painting, not tv, no video games, no sugar, just paint, paint, paint. And, I was fortunate enough to have a lot of free time last year.


    You are very wise. There is not much to be garnered on TV. I still have a weakness for video games, but I much happier at the end of the day with a well painted model rather than a fancy set of pixels that has no real world value. :)

  4. @CorallineAlgae Thank you! The recipient plays a shadow sorcerer, so I was going for a pale skin tone and he definitely walks a fine line between good and evil...


    @Baldur8762 Thank you as well. The colors I used were Titanium White as a base, Daler-Rowney Light Green ink (great stuff and I highly recommend it for stuff like this for its pigment and viscosity), RMS Viper Green and Rich Green for the OSL fade and GW Yriel Yellow for the "hot spots".

    Quick question regarding the various spider sizes. Which spider would be best to fit on a 40 or 50mm base? Bones would be preferable, but metal works as well. I took a look at the spider models available, but couldn't really tell on most of them what would fill up a larger base well.


    Thank you!

  6. Centipede finished well ahead of schedule ::):. This guy was based off of the reference picture shown, although I punched up the saturation quite a bit in some spots. Probably could have used some more work on the legs, but this at the end of the day is a gaming piece rather than display and more importantly was another experiment in the "sketch style" of painting as well as the use of Daler Rowney inks (in this case Burnt Umber and Sepia as well as RMS Black Ink and Red Ink. I definitely think I will be using inks more in the future for tinting purposes.
