Painting the Underworlds 2:- Paint Harder


Recommended Posts

With my Warrior Lady having a time out, I made a start on the next one:-




A skellington!

So far I've painted the sword blade (Leather Brown > Dry Rust > Fire Orange drybrush), handle (Leather Brown > Leather Brown/Bonewhite > Brown Wash) and hilt (Bronze > Brown Wash).


Once the wash is dry I think I'll try to do a bit of verdigris on the Bronze bits, so they're not so shiny compared to the blade.

Unfortunately he's the only Undead I have in this batch.

That sword blade is gorgeous.



But the Vallejo Dry Rust Wash is doing most of the work, that stuff is awesome!




Hit the sword hilt with some very thin Verdigris.

Also painted his gravestone, it's a base of Cold Grey, drybrushed with Ghost Grey and Medium Olive and hit with a Brown Wash.

Finally painted his bones (Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite/Off-white > Sepia Wash) and then had to do it again because I missed a shoulder-blade.


And my Brassy Brass came in so I could finish off my Warrior Lady's shield was highlights of Brassy Brass and Polished Gold:-




As a young girl, Sorcha chose to follow her sister into exile when she was cast out from their barbarian tribe. Life was hard but it forged her into a warrior who now leads a small but well respected band of mercenaries operating out of Witch's Finger.

Painted up his rags with Steel Grey, highlighted with Steel Grey/Ghost Grey and hit with a Brown Wash to grunge them up.

Then I painted the base Leather Brown, drybrushed Iraqi Sand and then a Brown Wash and he's done.




A skeleton freshly awakened by the eldritch energies that permeate Silverton, doomed to wander the dark, forgotten parts of the city forever.




Made a start on my first Sea Elf by painting his neck with Elf Flesh.

Finished off the bony bits with highlights of Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite and Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite/Off-white, and the metal bits with highlights of Bronze and Polished Gold.


The lantern windows were done in Pale Yellow and Pale Yellow/Off-white with a Sepia Wash to tidy up the edges. While the crest of the backcrest is done in Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow with highlights of Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow/Off-white.


Next up will be getting his cape painted, when I stop coughing (Still full of flu).

Felt up to doing a little painting today, unfortunately, I seem to have forgotten how since last Friday, so things are a little messy.

Basecoated his cape with Magic Blue, tried shading it with some Magic Blue/Pure Black but it didn't look right (I used this for the inner side instead), so I hit it with some Black Wash before highlighting with Magic Blue and Magic Blue/Sky Blue.

The edging was done with Ochre Yellow and a Sepia Wash.


Next up will either be his eel or his robes.

Hope you feel better soon. This is an interesting sculpt which is off to a great start. Love the work you've done on the headpiece and head area. The blue is a good compliment.


Also you're skeleton rocks, the sword and bone is perfect.







Painted his pet eel (I found something called a Leopard Eel on Google), the skin is Iraqi Sand/Yellow Ochre with Bonewhite highlights and a Sepia Wash, it also got Bloody Red eyes and markings made out of dots of Saddle Brown with Pale Yellow centres.


Now I've gotta paint his robe.

I like that eel, good choice!



I was worried it would blend in too much once I got all the bone armour done, but I think it still stands out enough.




Painted up his bone armour using the same colours as his helmet (Took a while because I kept finding spots I'd missed). There's some gems too (Stormy Blue, with a Stormy Blue/Off-white highlight and an Off-white reflection dot), most are really small so I'm not sure how gem-like they look.

Still got his wrist blades to do, and a weird dangly crotch ponytail thing.

      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!
