Painting the Underworlds 2:- Paint Harder


Recommended Posts

Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.




This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).




Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.




This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).




Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.




And this is the Sea Elf team.

We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).


Making a start on Sorcha:-




Painted the furry collar on her cape.

It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).


Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.

That's a great mix of interesting figures you've got there.

Beautiful selection of models!  Also, still love the way you stain the primer!


Thanks guys!





Painted up the collar of her armour in Bronze and her head in (Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Flesh > Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh > Dwarf Flesh Glaze).

She then got Bonewhite teeth (with a Brown Wash) and a Bronze eyebrow ring (looking at the piccy, I think she might have a nose ring too, but I can't see it on the model so I'm leaving well alone).


Hair next.

Thanks guys!





Painted her noggin-basher.

The handle is Oily Steel with (Iraqi Sand > Off-white > Brown Wash) wrap, while the head is Brassy Brass, shaded with Brown Wash, highlighted with Brassy Brass and Polished Gold and a final coat of Sepia Wash.


I also used a mystery green mix that was on my palette on the little rune thingy around her neck.

Painted her loincloth (Scarlett Red, shaded with Scarlett Red/Dark Green and highlighted with Scarlett Red/Orange Fire), her belt and dagger sheath (Leather Brown > Leather Brown/Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash), Brassy Brass belt buckle, Bronze dagger hilt and Iraqi Sand handle.




I also did a bit to the inside of her shield.

Ran into a bit of trouble on this one.

Painted the shield Hexed Lichen with a Brassy Brass trim, unfortunately I ran out of Brassy Brass so I can't highlight it back up after its Brown Wash.


So I quickly did the base, it's just a pile of rubble in Cold Grey, drybushed with Ghost Grey and given a Brown Wash, and set her aside until my paint arrives next week sometime.

      Presenting Jelsen the Vampire Hunter from Games Workshops Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City board game.
      Pretty pleased with this one, I was worried about how to paint certain areas (Like his little tucked away face), but I think he ended up looking decent.

      Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months.  







      Battle Report! 
      Turns out squigs are not just funny looking, they are funny to paint.  I loved these models and really found they took amazing to dry brushing. I was testing colors and layers.  
      * dry brush was excellent.  Used some cheapo makeup brushes and they did great. 
      * i used a purple glaze over orange and then built it up with orange further.  Looked good. 
      *  blue came out great, but i don't know what layers to use on it to give contrast like the purple orange one. 
      *teeth are all solid and look good. 
      *skin folds are natural looking and added freckles on some are much better than expected. 
      * the yellow one was testing out transparent paints and it went on like a dream. 
      *not too many complaints really.  These all came out more or less as expected.  
      * challenged by how low they are to the base and getting them with ground effects. 
      *never painted mushrooms and wasn't sure how to go about it.

      When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
      One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
      Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. 
      Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
      Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

      Here's the purebred. 
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!
