Painting White - the bane of my life.

Well, not so much in this case, the white has been made so much simpler due to the white undercoat and a grey shading wash. The problem was every other area, because i'd used a white undercoat. Im not the neatest painter to begin with so everything had to be done with more care than im used to.

Im going to get the rest of the army assembled before painting the rest - i've got some games arranged with Sorrowshard over at Rant in E Minor at the end of febuary and not much spare time so i'll need every second I get.

I won't bore you with any more text today, i'll just move straight on to the pretty pictures.

As always, thanks for reading.


  1. He looks good. So what if he takes a little longer, he's wearing white.

    Seriously though, nice job.

  2. Thanks Ron.

    I think I might be able to get to about 3 hours per figure which isn't too bad. The white undercoat is certainly helping though, might have to practise with it on some other ranges.

  3. Yeah dude , sweet job , only observation , and this could be the lighting , I would go one stage higher and do some sharp highlights on the black.

    Like the axe blade too ;o)

  4. 3 hours per figure, for that kind of quality!?

    I salute you, a very fine job sir. I think I'll be following your white technique when I get round to my apothecaries.

  5. Cheers gents.

    @Matt - Not the first person to say the black needs another highlight, myself included. Going to go a couple of stages lighter as when it gets hit with dullcote it'll mute the colour again.

  6. 3 hours for this fig? I would have thought it would have taken twice as long. Very nice.

  7. Not quite 3 hours for this fig, closer to 5. Subsequent figs should be around the 3 hour mark.
