For my second attempt at painting minis I thought I'd try something easier...and I love rats. So here are my Bones Dire Rats - one has escaped from some mad wizard's lab I think... The fur came out ok, but I maybe need to cut back on the coffee or not watch Monty Python while painting - the tails and ears and paws came out so messy, even with my hands braced. When I tried to clean up the stone parts, the pink parts got all messed up. Argh!
First painting: Cut rats from sprue, washed figures to get mold release off, dried, glued to bases, and primed with Army Painter Uniform Grey: 2013-07-15 - Primed Figures - Rats and Skeletons - 0001.jpg Added basing material and washed it with black wash, painted a dark base coat of walnut brown to the shield and spear, and muddy brown to the skeleton to provide pre-shading. I plan to follow up with lightly brushed mid-tones, and a quick dry brush to highlight. Each example of skeleton and rat will be done differently to get ideas of what approach I like. 2013-07-15 - Skeletal Spearm
