  1. Hey ya'll, I just started working on a squad using one of Rackham's old Ragnarok boxes - 6 warriors will compose the human portion of the squad... and one Privateer Press brute will be at the center. I've already started working on the basing for the squad - nothing too fancy, I want it to look like red clay. Here are the steps I've done so far. 1. Lay down a base of terracotta milliput, with some miniature bricks set in (can't remember the company the bricks are from), chamomile tea pressed in, and tree bark pressed in. One new thing I tried was using an incredibly fine silicate for sand instead of the usual playground sand - since clay is composed of such fine silt, I thought it appropriate. Unfortunately, its fineness and (I think) its very nature as a silicate made it difficult to glue - there is less than I had hoped on the base. The guy in the center, as you may guess, is the brute. 2. Once the squad's base holes have been figured out and the groundwork done, basecoat of armory white. I went for white because I believe it will be easier to control some of the more subtle shadows with washes instead of just straight black. You can see some of the Rag guys here, too. 3. Start off with a couple think washes of red liner. Nothing is spared ;) 4. Pick out the stones (tree bark) by drybrushing heavily with Privateer Press Cryx Bane highlight, all the way up to Liquitex Titanium White (edges). This will be toned down by the clay drybrushing colors. 5. Then, I heavily drybrushed A 50-50 mix of tanned shadow and PP Skorne Red. This will be the basecoat for the Ragnarok men's skintones. 6. Add palomino gold and continue to drybrush, lightening pressure. 7. Add bleached bone, lighten to pure bleached bone. Touch up rocks. 8. Current state: For now, the goal is to keep touching up the base, adding interest with more washes (dark reds, greens, yellows, and purples - complements), and adding terrain features (bushes, etc) I'll be in touch soon! As always, comments and especially criticisms are welcomed. My paint hand is rusty.
  2. Hey all, been a bit since I've finished something and this goblin kind of pushed a few other projects but I had a lot of fun with him. One of the things I was wanting to do was use warm and neutral colors the shade them with cool colors --in this case I used purples the shade most things. I did use some browns to also shade the wood and metal. The green is kind of in the middle closer to cool I guess but still it worked quite well and I'm very happy with the results. As always C&C welcome
