Converting an efreeti into Doomsday

Recommended Posts

Hmm...I like using a flesh wash on my bone and then doing a bit of dry brushing, but Doomsday's palette is maybe a bit on the cool side for that. I've always liked how his earlier appearances had a bit of icy blue on the spikes, which might go well with the OG pants you gave him. Either one of those choices could mean the difference between a modern, earthy Doomsday or a classic, alien, vat-grown look!

Ooooh I can dig all of that.  Best of both worlds: highlight to flesh on the dark part of the spikes, highlight to icy blue on the paler part.  This is gonna be tricky.

Varnished the big guy because I'm an idiot and forgot to drill for pinning before I painted.  *facepalm*

 

Primed and cursory base coat on the kobold, pinned everything but haven't glued yet.

My son has decided in the last week that naps aren't happening anymore, so I've lost my afternoon window for painting. *cry*

 

I've managed to get a few base coats on Eeemmo the (dismembered) Sootscale kobold.  If I'm lucky, I get 30 second snatches of time to make progress, maybe once or twice a day lol

The DDM bugbear seems to have some kind of repellant chemical on it that is seeping annoyingly through the primer I brushed on.  Paint ain't staying where I want it, and the yellow is coming up to lighten and tint my green. :-\

 

The Reaper lizard is a delight, especially in contrast with El Hydrophobe the dumb orc. :-)

Full strip and reset for the orc.  He was taking paint even worse today than yesterday!  I used a bit of Vallejo airbrush thinner and a toothbrush, took about 20 minutes.  Followed with hot soapy water and scrubbing, then a hot water rinse and scrub.  Here's hoping the second draft works better!

Base coats went on much easier and waaaay better this time.  I haven't touched brush for the last couple weeks, was going a bit nuts TBH.
