Painting Updates: Otherworld Miniatures   Leave a comment

These were quite fun to paint and nice sculpts with not too much flash to deal with.  Pin and drill necessary for some joints for example lizard tails.

Two Minotaurs.

Painted Army Painter undercoat barbarian flesh.  Block in dark brown for leather and head/ hair and wood.  Vermin brown and bestial brown used for the head, hair and leather.  Flesh wash to skin.  A little bit of highlight with dwarf flesh.  Black watered down to the chainmail, highlighted with chainmail wet-dry brush.  Nuln oil black wash to chain mail and weapons.  Rust applied to great axe then some blood for the blood god.  Base brown and grey, then graveyard earth.  Nuln oil to grey.  Tufts applied.

Next up the Purple Wizard and the Medusa.  Red and Purple washed with Purple then highlighted.  Talarn flesh, flesh wash and Dwarf Flesh.

Dark green and black, some grey added for the dress.  Nuln Oil wash.  Dark Green for the Snakes and highlights.  Red eyes.  Brown sandals.

Wizard and Thief

Mainly black, highlighted with grey.  Flesh as above.  Maroon for the book cover, graveyard earth pages.  Dark brown highlighted with Bestial/ Vermin brown for the leather.  Chainmail metals.  A little burnished gold.

The Lizardmen.

Greenskin Armypainter. Similar paint were needed.   Highlighted with Scorpion Green.  Nuln Oil and Thraka Green washes used.  Red used for eyes.  Brown and skull white for leather and jewellery.   Bronze used for the Metals.  Lizardmen living in a Marsh might find Iron somewhat limited due to rust issues.  Thraka Green for verdi gris effects.  Attempted Marsh style bases.  Used dark brown and graveyard earth.  Varnished.  Then applied areas of Woodland Scenics Water (which I got in my eye and managed to wash out with water) for some shallow water, wet marsh earth effects and then applied scenic leaves and spring tufts.  Thraka green dotted into the dirty marsh water.  Varnishing first to avoid matte ruining the wet look from the water effect.

Finally, the Undead

Greater Zombie




Necrotic Flesh Spray undercoat and paint.  Strong Tone or Dark Tone (Ghouls) Wash.  Skull white bones.  Highlighted necrotic flesh.  A few touches of Bubonic Brown to Greater Zombie.  Blood for Blood God to the Ghouls to break up the colours and show them as having been digging up corpses, scattering and breaking bones to get at the marrow perhaps.  Paler Tufts.
