What about Brother Hammond

You may be wondering where Brother Hammond went.  Well, the traveling monk made his way to my office.  Since I am not finding a lot of time to work on stuff at home, and I have an hour for lunch, I thought that I might be able to use that time to get a little work done.  I started by using some Vallejo Red Leather on the book he is carrying.

What about Brother Hammond

Looking at Brother Hammond, I noticed a couple of things.  First,  I missed a spot on his robes.  So a bit more skeleton bone to the rescue.  I also used a bit of Reaper Christmas Wreath green and black wash (I only brought so many colors with me to the office, and this was the best I had for darkening the color) to color his sleeves.

Look between the cross and his satchel, and you can see the missed spot. Look between the cross and his satchel, and you can see the missed spot.

Second, I was not a fan of how dark his hood was as I used what should have been my shadow color as a base color.  Not a problem.  A quick coat of olive green to the rescue.

Yep.  That looks better.  Next came some Reaper cursed gold for the cross and buckles.  Some skeleton bone, red leather, and adon prairie were used to add texture to the leather and the walking stick.  I also used a bit of skeleton bone to highlight the rope.  I know that it looks a bit harsh, but I plan on darkening it with the wash and some glazes.

Now it is wash time.  I used a black wash for the sleeves and cloak and sepia wash for everything else.  Both washes are from the Army Painter line.  And that was all I was able to get done in my time.  I am happy with how Brother Hammond is turning out.  There is still work to do, but I like the dirty look of a monk who spends a lot of time traveling.  More to come.
