Sorry this is a bit late, I did finish these on Thursday night, but since then I’ve been working and had no access to my Camera. Anyway, enough with the excuses, let me present the next model in the Series, Beastmen, the last post before Christmas, which was the deadline for finishing this set!
I started out with a coat of Black Primer, this was followed up with Bloodtracker Brown for the Flesh, Mechrite Red for the clothing and Dheneb Stone for the hair and beard. The eyes were picked out with Sand. The Hair and Beard were then washed with Yellow Ink (Vallejo) and the clothing was darkened using Burgundy. Next I washed the Beard and Hair with Ogryn Flesh, picked out the tongue with a Bright Red and White mix and the teeth with Pale Flesh. The Doll was base coated with Bloodtracker Brown. Next I mixed up some Tanned Flesh, Moldy Ochre and Bloodtracker Brown (25/25/50) and applied this to all the flesh, leaving only a little of the base coat in the deepest recesses. Adding White to the mix I highlighted all the muscles and the other raised areas. Finally I mixed up some Tanned Flesh, Moldy Ochre and Dheneb Stone and applied the final highlights. this time concentrating on painting just the edges. Using Dheneb Stone I picked out the hair and the beard again. I followed that up with the occasional White streak as a highlight. Next I picked out the leg wrappings and claws with Pale Flesh. Finally I set to work on the loin cloth. It has to be said, I hate painting red, which is probably how this ended up being orange. First I used Macharius Solar Orange to pick out all but the deepest recesses. Then I used Moldy Ochre to pick out all the edges. Boltgun Metal was then added to the fringe and finally highlighted with Mithril Silver. The Doll was painted with a mix of Bloodtracker Brown and White, followed by a highlight with even more white. Lastly the loin cloth was washed with Baal Red and the leg wrappings with Ogryn Flesh. The edge of the base was painted with Pale Flesh and then I’ll base them like the other models in the series. And that’s it. I’m going to continue to work on the Descent models over the coming months and at some point I will return with a How Not To on the Dragon and the Demon, but for now I’m going to focus on some other stuff. I’ll also be taking a small hiatus over the Christmas period, so that means I’ll be back in two weeks.
Until then, Merry Christmas everybody and I’ll see you all in the new year!
