Uruk hai scouts   Leave a comment

Painted some new Uruk hai scouts including a command group and Lurtz with bow and team from box set. This includes the Merry and Pippin being captured I have wanted for awhile.

I wanted them to be unified in appearance so I painted them together in a large batch before basing. I also wanted them to match my existing scouts. I think I now have about 50. I still wanted to use contrast paints.

I used wraithbone undercoat then red brown fur for the skin which was darkened for Lurtz. Then a mix of colours for the leather. Cyborg brown, snakebite leather and black Templar. Metal first black Templar then chain mail then nuln oil gloss. Some tin bits added in under or over the silver. Highlights with new dark flesh. A mix of yellow and earth brown or rhinox hide or dark grey to the leather. Devlan mud to the Captain leather recesses. Munitorium varnish but the paint is still quite weak and thin on exposed parts.

For the white hand I used white scar plus a thinner medium to aid flow. I used a reverse G pattern and watched a you tube video by Brush and Boltgun plus read the guide written by shadow and flame.

Mounted Nazgul   Leave a comment

Painted my 7th Nazgul on a horse. Hopefully this should be enough for the next scenario. painted with contrast paints almost exclusively. Black Templar for the cloak, cyborg brown for the horse. Chain mail for the armour and then the new nuln oil gloss applied. Snake bite leather for straps and agarose dunes for hooves.
