About the Project

I fancied something a little different to print and paint, as I usually just do dungeon crawler stuff to play with mates once in a blue moon. Saw some lovely sculpts from the Red makers that a lot of people have been printing lately and grabbed one of their free models to have a go at. It turned out quite well I thought...

I started with an airbrush primer of dark grey with a white ink zenithal highlight.

Then basecoat with Army Painter speed paints (I like them for the strong colours).

I then gave it a coat of AK interactives’ streaking grime

I cleaned off most of the streaking grime and began highlights. I wanted to go for a grim dark look so decided to give it a snow base, but with a very dirty look.

A mix of PVA, White Liquitex ink, and Bicarbonate of Soda over the base, with some on the underside of the mount and the rider’s greatcoat.

But I wanted to go dirty so I speckled a mix of black and burnt umber oil wash over the very white mix (using a speckling brush or whatever they are called) to make it look suitably grubby.

This was also my first time using a wet pallet… which was needed in the searing heat the UK has at the moment.

This was most of my paints used…

And here he is…
