Originally primed with two layers of "Vallejo" Heavy Brown, the Gallifreyan's trainers, shirt and tie were painted using either Heavy Red or White, and appropriately washed with "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson or "Vallejo" Pale Grey. I then treated the time traveller's suit to a combination of Heavy Blue and "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade, before picking out his hair with "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna. This area, along with his overcoat, were subsequently shaded with "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.
|Karanak WIPs - The Khorne Flesh Hound is slowly having all of its gold icons and collars 'picked out'|
In addition to my latest "Into The Time Vortex" miniature, I have been making some steady progress on my three-headed Karanak for "Age Of Sigmar". This 'never sleeping' resin model of the Flesh Hound who "prowls Khorne's grand throne room" is proving incredibly time-consuming on account of the sculpt's terrific attention to detail, and the fact that I fully assembled the rather cumbersome figure before I started painting him.
With hindsight I really should have left the three heads separate from the body, as each has subsequently caused me a few challenges in trying to reach the beast's collars with my paintbrush. Fortunately however, with a far amount of patience, and plenty of "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade I believe I have finally turned the corner, and am currently in the process of simply tidying up the "Vallejo" Gold areas before moving to the monster's back-spines and double-tail...
|Slambo WIPs - The Chaos Warrior has been primed, washed and dry-brushed|
As something of an indulgence I pre-ordered the "updated version of the classic, iconic Chaos warrior, Slambo" just as soon as "Games Workshop" announced it, and upon his arrival I simply couldn't resist setting aside a little of my hobby-time in order to both assemble the "multi-part resin kit" and apply 'a lick of paint' to it. Initially I did consider painting the "Age Of Sigmar" Exalted Hero of Chaos in the seemingly popular green armour depicted on the model's box. But decided that such a palette would undoubtedly seemingly tie the figure to Nurgle. I have therefore instead chosen a far simpler silver and gold scheme, which should subsequently allow me to field the 'legend' in any Chaos force I decide to field.
