Lady Quimby Approaches Completion

I’ve previously mentioned that Lady Quimby is one of my figures from the entire Wolsung line so it should be no surprise to anyone that she is taking much longer to paint.  It doesn’t help that I glued her to the base before priming but then that is a longtime bad habit. Now I did keep the lamp post separate for painting so I maybe be learning.  Maybe being the operative word there.

I wanted the lamp post to look like ancient bronze, long exposed to weather so actually used very little metalic paint until the final stage.  I did document the process so have included it below with the names of the Games Workshop paints I used.

Archibald Armstrong is also just shy of being finished.  The pictures look a little dark as one of my desk lamps burned out but the progress is still visible.  With school having started up again this week I’m not sure I will get these two done by this weekend but I am hopeful.  I now have a truck to prep and paint after all.

Nihilikh Oxide was applied in two rough coats. I didn't want them too even and I applied the Wash from top to bottom to simulate centuries of rain and fog dripping down it. More white was added to the yellow mix.Nihilikh Oxide was applied in two rough coats.

Finally I ended with two light dry brush layers of Runelord Brass, also applied top down and concentrated on areas that might be rubbed regularly.  Final bulb highlight was almost entirely white.Finally I ended with two light dry brush layers of Runelord Brass, also applied top down and concentrated on areas that might be rubbed regularly.

Great tutorial on weathering the lamp post! I have never been able to get that to look right myself.
