Painting update   Leave a comment

No games again on Saturday so even more painting time.

Dol Guldur Nazgul 1-6.

Paint black undercoat.  Then highlight with grey then apply chainmail to metal.  Nuln oil wash.  Highlight with chainmail.  Usual fun with forgeworld assembly but at least no hands attaching to flat ends of arms trouble this time and some opportunity to drill and in for example the arms.

Percy and Hilda from Lake Town.

Undercoat black.  Various browns for Hilda, highlighted with desert yellow added to brown.  Devlan Mud.  Scab red hat.  For Percy black undercoat. Dark grey base for coat.  Fur highlighted with brown and bleached bone mixes.  Devlan Mud.

Thranduil, King of the Greenwood

Black undercoat, dark green base and dark blue base.  Then storm or wolves ble grey to highlight the cloak and dark angels green for the tunic.  Nuln oil to the tunic.  Blue wash for the cloak.  Thrakka green to the tunic after more dark gren.  Hair white or bleached bone and then sepia wash.  Crown is brown with sepia wash.  I chose to go with my blue and green theme for the elves rather than the black. This is mainly because I have a vampiric black themed warrior Thranduil already and wanted something different I can use in my elven army.  Maybe this is Thranduil from a lighter time before or after the encroachments of the Mirkwood.

Radagast, chariot

Putting this finecast model together without any instructions was as fun as expected.  However it does not look too bad and has been undercoated black.
