Here are the Bloodbound. As you can see my photo studio (*cough* outside *cough*) had changed from a rainy backdrop to snow. I guess I should've painted some Space Wolves... Because I was to viking to put on a coat or sweater, but not viking enough to stay out for an extended period I don't have any proper close-ups of the blood on the guys. But it was a hell of a lot of fun adding it. I think I've linked to this tutorial before, but I really can't recommend it enough. It is (as far as I'm concerned) the ultimate guide to make your bloody miniatures bloody.
|I like the addition of scars and bone growths spurting from the models. These guys are here to hack and slay, no doubt about it.|
Aside from the blood most work went into the skin. It was basically a straight forward job of airbrushing Cadian Fleshtone followed by a copious wash of Reikland Flesh. Then I let the miniatures sit for two weeks as I had to clear out my workspace (optional step ;) ). After that I layered from a wet palette starting with Cadian Fleshtone, then a mix of Cadian with Kislev Flesh, Pure Kislev Flesh and finally a highlight of what was left of the Kislev mixed with Pallid Wych Flesh. As an aside, what a joy it is to spell check the GW paint names. I keep discovering I've been reading names on paint pots wrong for years....
Right now I'm preparing for a long hobby holiday, so I have good hopes of accomplishing a lot this month (note to self: stay away from Steam). That might turn out to be necessary, I really want to finish the Orruks I have on my paint tray, but I've also bought the new Necromunda and I couldn't help but buy into the Christmass Special offering
