|LAST OF MY MANTICS ESCAPE THEIR CELLS|
|THEY ARE OUT OF HERE|
After a quick exchange of e-mails with Joe it appears that a breakdown of my painting style would make a good post.
The picture shows Left to Right: Archie the Arsonist, he's painted in an old
school horror movie style, the classic green skinned zombie.
I've only got GW paints (have a shop 5 minutes walk away) and most of them are old, so not many of these colours are still available.
Archie started unlife with a Catachan green basecoat, this was then given a quick overbrush (like a drybrush only wetter) with Camo green. After the basic skin pigments have been applied it's time to paint the clothes, in this case the, prison coverall theme, one coat of Blazing orange. Now I also choose hair colour if any and give that a single coat as well.
Next comes some quick shading using Leviathan purple wash, any wounds, eye sockets, spinal detail etc. Then the whole model get's a heavy wash of Devlan mud, this dries to a matte-ish finish. When the wash has dried I then pick out eyes and teeth if big enough, finally then wounds and added gore applied using Red Ink. Base model and you are finished.
Hope that helps.
Next to Archie is a model with a head I've seen reffered to as the David Icke head, I can't see the resembelance my self. I shall be calling him Hungry Ray as he has brought a snack. Ray has been painted in a variation of my basic grey scheme, which I will go into detail in another post.
Last in the line-up today is Half-face Harry, he's painted the same way as Archie.
I'm finding this blog an excellent motivation to paint as nobody wants posts without pictures. Many of you might think why only 3 zombies this time. Well it's a bit of an experiment, to see if I could get tighter group shots, to show more detail.
'til next time, in the words of the DUDE, take it easy.
