Another nice PJ, you're cracking through them now. With his incense burner and key he is like a proto-bright wizard. Would look great dashing round a dungeon with a few friends.
Thanks. I wasn't sure how to paint the incense burner: In the end I sort of blobbed on some slightly lighter shades of gold to give it some texture as I had trouble getting neat highlights around the holes. What dungeon games are there that you would recommend?
You can't beat AD&D to be honest. At the moment I'm giving WH 3rd a go to see if it works I think it should be just right for a quick game. Perhaps 2nd would be good too, I'm sure you could find a copy somewhere...
I have never seen this model before, and that is always a pleasure, especially when painted so well. I love the skin tones you achieved on this one - where they just from one of the Foundry 'triad' sets or did you use additional mixes?
Thank you. This is just the standard Foundry Flesh 5 triad, which I almost always use.I was on Steve Dean's website the other day and saw this painting guide for an old Citadel model where he uses Conker Brown 54c underneath the standard Flesh colours, leaving a small amount showing for some more contrast. I'm going to try it out at some point. Here's a link to the guide, it's well worth looking at: http://www.steve-dean.co.uk/squeakthro/sq-1.htm
Thats a nice old model and it reads well, if you know what I mean. A good gaming piece.Your clean and uncluttered painting style is well suited to showing these straightforward, archetypal model designs off.
Thank you. The three shade painting is very quick and easy to do, especially if there are lots of nice folds on the model's clothing to paint. It's very nice not having to mix my own shades as well.
Very cool model. I really do like the censor. I have to agree with sho3box, your painting style is a very nice complement to the sculpt.
Thanks. I like how he's more of a practical looking wizard than most. Unfortunately I didn't get any side on pictures but he's a surprisingly 3D and chunky model.
Love the vibrant colours and work on the face.
Thank you. Unfortunately his right eye ended up looking in a very different direction to his left eye, but I'm hoping to pass it off as him concentrating too hard on casting a spell, or something like that.
Very interesting post. Thanks for sharing it! It is always a joy to learn something that I didn't know. I have you to thank for teaching me something new.see here my post Lead oxide ManufacturersLead Ingots Manufacturers
