As the Painting Challenge fast approaches trying to get a few figures finished before moving on to new themes for the duration of the Challenge.
These three heavily armoured figures have been a bit of a challenge in their own right, especially the figure with the mace. The cloak on this chap has been black, yellow ochre, black, purple, black, bottle green and then black again. After leaving the figure in the corner so to speak have finally decided that black works best with the tones in the armour. Well at least it won't need another base coat this time.
The other two figures from Grenadier had issues with the armour and washes. The blue/black mix wasn't right and after another two coats of Nuln Oil finally seemed to work. Only the hair and plumage to finish and these are for basing.
Layering metallics gives a good result and is very different than straight dry brushing the colours up and picking out highlights. Dry brushing is still champion if there are large amounts of chainmail although this can be picked out with wet brushing if very careful.
Hopeful to get these completed over the next few nights
Cheers for now
