OK so I didn’t go on full gore but a little bit of red wash seemed right… it blends some of the hard edges together. I call this one done.

Day 5 - blending in

So after the poor fellow had his coat dried, I painted him up a bit… and them stomped him into the ground. He shouldn’t have tripped 😉

Day 4 - stick it

Also added some sand for texture… now to let it all dry again and then paint the gory bits.

Any tips on how to do really messy blood and entrails? 😉

So after the protective coat has dried I did a drybrush with a light grey. (Sidenote: I mix the colours up as I go from simple colours out of the DIY store. I couldn’t give you any names ;))

And there will be a little detail I’m still working on… can you spot it?

So this is as straight forward as it gets. I got the measurements of the foot imprint from my FLGS and made a template. That was transfered to 5mm foamcore and I went cutting away.

After that I slapped some filler on it. At this point I realized using cardboard as base… is a bad idea… it really warped but since it’s an imprint on terrain I’m not to worried. Last step for tonight: Sand and grit. Now to let everything dry.
