About the Project

I've already painted up the base set, I'll add another project during these I guess. About to start the Drune Warband now. I'm going to document my process in terms of painting as best I can! Hopefully give other people some ideas

Final stages

Finally I’ve actually rushed the last stages a bit. All remaining areas I’ve finished with washes of various contrast browns for the fur, wood, leather etc. I experimented with mixing various tones. Normally I would also hilight then but they look fine so I’m happy! Horns on the archers were ivory then graded with sepia the agrax wash them darkened with wildwood and black contrast. Some metal items I did a simple nazgrad yellow wash to create a gold effect

A bit of grass and a few Tufts and rocks in the base which had been painted gray, black wash them dry brushed a light gray and jobs done!

Metals

So I did the metals next.

For the steel I used a medium thinned basilicum grey contrast wash over the initial zenithil hilight. This does a good job of creating an initial canvas to work on.

I then used Vallejo white grey then pure white very watered down to build up the hilights

Finally I will add soon black contrast and ink to the dark areas (as I’m typing I realise I forgot to do this stage on these shots!)

For the copper type metal I experimented and tried a mix of a little boys angels red with nazdreg yellow, both contrast with added medium to work with the zenithil layer. I hilights up with straight orange mixed with tau ochre with gradual addition of ivory. I kind of mixed stippling with normal brush with to try and get some kind of texture.

Lastly I’ve done cloth areas with aggaros dunes  way and the for with gore grunter fur contrast.

Going to give them a bit of hilight next!

Flesh initial stage

I want to do the flesh first so I use an initial two layers of contrast Gulliman flesh to get a base to work on. I then use an airbrush, very fine 0.15 needle to build the layers on top, cadian flesh, Kislev flesh then KF plus a bit of ivory. You need to work in very thin layers and it’s easy to accidently remove some of the darker muscle recess but it’s ok we will touch that up later 🙂

Notice that as it’s thin layers the zenithil base coat is still working for us!

  1. My standard approach is to base black then zenithil hilight light grey then white finished with a white dry brush. I find this does a lot of the hard work for me as most future layers are glazes or air brushed
