Last 2 weeks have had a real upturn in work, and thus painting has not been the first thing on my mind. But I have managed some progress and here it is
10 Grave Guard (New plastics)
2 Spirit Hosts
1 Zombie Dragon
So 1 of the spirit hosts and the banshee are Reaper miniatures and arrive in a blister and are made of clear green plastic one piece casting. The plastic is quite malleable, slightly less dense than an old Airfix toy solider. None the less, the paint effect makes all the detail stand out.
The wings on that Blood Thirster were very simple and took about 20 mins with an airbrush, then a dry brush, then 4 different coloured washes - the effect is magnificent to my eyes and better in the flesh.
For purposes, the colour is too light. So I paint it with GW Rhinox Hide, or as normal people call it - Dark Brown.
I then do a quick dry brush of Grey and blob some green patches. Once the Vallejo Still Water is on, these green patches turn into a depth of colour that looks like floating algae.
Then I use some tufts of various sizes, colours and shapes that I have got from Ebay. I found this seller who does buy 3 get 1 one free type deals and the range is great. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Serious-Play?_trksid=p2047675.l2563
From there I add Vallejo Still Water, and then sprinkle on some swamp debris (another product in a bag from that Ebay seller) and leave to dry for 24 hours, do the sides of the base black and there it is done.
