First up, are some nice 28 mm figures from Gripping Beast for their SAGA Revenant warband. I have already completed the Warlord and one unit of levy and here is a second. I plan to paint a 4 point unit, painting 72 revenants would be a bit much I think, so I had settled on 48 in four units of 12. The Revenant warband is entirely made up of levy and utilizes a novel system of Dread Markers and Gravepits to activate the units. I am hoping they will be able to confound Adam's Norse-Gaels, who I find to be a bit of a challenge, if you get my meaning.
They are all white primed, and then washed with the two greenish washes from Citadel. First the Biel-Tan Green and then the Camoshade, I then follow with painting the details on the figures which I then wash with the specific coloured washes for each base colour. Once done the flesh is washed with Earthshade. I then do some highlighting and then varnish and base the figure. It is a little laborious but I believe they came to OK. They are quite nice figures with at least 24 different poses. Anyway here they go.
A couple of comments; I ran out of AP Polyurethane and although I have not used it to shade figures in quite some time, it is a great gloss varnish (I do not shake it). I used Gloss-Cote from Testors and really it is just not that good. I waited for 3 days to apply the Dull-Cote and I can already see that there has been some rubbing off of colour. And second, I just wish Apple would stop screwing with iPhoto, as you can see I found it almost impossible to adjust the white balance in after photo editing. It used to be a piece of cake. I am probably doing something wrong but I can not seem to get it right!
Well I am relieved to get on the board, I doubt if I will ever get to 400 points, but here is 60.
ByronM: Another last minute poster just avoiding the cull! Welcome John to the challenge, it is good to have you on board once again. Isn't it horrible when real life has the nerve to interfere with hobby time?
Your figures look great, and the green washes you used almost give them an unearthly glow. I like the effect a lot for something like this. There is something great to be said for simple paint schemes that pull off a great look like this. Good luck against the Norse-gaels with them.
