Bone 4 Nyarlahotep

Recommended Posts

With the Joan of Arc dragon finished, and classes for the summer term wrapped up, I moved on to the next mini that I had inspiration for: Nyarlahotep. I started off with the tentacles, and didn't actually have a color for the main carapace until last night when I started on the green. Much left to do on it, but the green turned out better than I thought it was going to, so that's a definite plus :) I started off with a white base, which is unusual because I normally use a black base, mainly because I wanted this to have the colors be a bit brighter. I used some of the GW Contrast paints for certain parts, although I didn't use them in the way that GW intended them to be used - I basically used them as a thicker wash, since I was NOT happy with how they turned out when I followed their instructions for how to use them. I mainly used them on the tongue and over some of the pink areas throughout the tentacles. I haven't even began to think about the base yet. This so far has been one of the most challenging Bones 4 minis I've done when it comes to color selection, as I wanted something different than my normal dark gritty feeling paint job.

It's always good when someone's work makes me want to paint an identical figure. 

 

Bones IV must have been quite the offering!

Was able to spend a little bit of time this weekend painting the base. Still have a bunch of touchups and layering to do on nyarlahotep himself yet, but I think the base is close to being done!
