Well, last night I said an inward "Bugger it" and started slapping on some colours to this bad boy. It's a sculpt jam-packed with detail and amazingly well done detail at that. The sculptor researched many many horrible poxes and buboes and so forth when he was developing this model, including how dead and rotted flesh sloughs from the bone were a bloated corpse to shamble about in unlife. The horns are my least favourite part of the model as I think they look like strange "Donnie Darko" rabbit ears. I kept them on though to be true to the original sculpt.
|Base colours slapped onto the main body. Start with green, but the finished effect should end up a pale green-grey.|
|First round of washes. The lighting is harsh so in this photo, all the detail and depth to the colours in the creases and open sores and tears in the flesh are not showing up,|
I also finished up the Piat and Light mortar teams so now I'm fully painted for Saturday's tournament. Looking forward to seeing if I can actually place for once. :)
And lastly, this is Meathook my cat, here to brighten up your day and cast a pox on your enemies with her baleful gaze.
