Have you ever wondered why the painting masters prevent you from the perils of using too much black on your mixtures?
Have you ever wondered how applying black to a skin mix can affect the overall result on your minis?
Do not worry, I am here to show you that.
On the left you will see my initial attempt to the skin, to the right the dwarf as it stands now. I had to correct the whole skin as I am looking for a really vibrant and colourful piece on this war machine.
It has been a long time since I last posted anything on the Blog.
Sometimes live just happens, and we find ourselves with no motivation to keep doing what we really love. Anyway, it feels really great to be back, batteries are fully charged and I am ready to give my painting a big push this year.
As you can see in the photo above, I painted a Mantic Games Ghoul. I think that the models are really cool, and the value for money is pretty amazing. You can find them HERE. I went for the blue kind of skin, but to be honest I am not convinced at all, so I will change the whole scheme and provably go for a classic pale rotting flesh colour.
This miniature will be part of a gift for a friend as a part of a unit for his Vampire Counts army. I previously painted for him a mini conversion of a MOUNTED BLOOD DRAGONfor his birthday. If Truth be told we have both been growing our armies for ages!!!
And finally the dwarf thunderers are ready to kick ass. The paint job could be improved big time, but there is no pretensions in this unit, just painting my lovely dwarf thunderers to a decent standard for my cabinet and the war field.
You can see that the bases are square and that is because I do not like very much Age Of Sigmar (But that would be another topic). For all of you that want to keep living adventures and commanding your favourite army in the traditional warhammer world I recommend you to give a go to WARHAMMER REFORGED.In their blog there is an inmense amount of resources and rules books.....everything free!!! Again thank you very much for your hard work.
Here I leave the link to CMON just in case you want to drop a vote :)
Goodbye 2016 , hello 2017. Not the best year if we speak about miniature painting, lots of changes going on in my personal life, so I guess that going through a rough patch doesn't make anything easier.
I will try to keep the blog updated and start preparing some articles to help everyone that reads the blog.
