I've not been very good at posting WIPs recently, but as I'm on a bit of a roll of starting things and finishing them, here's one: It's a random Killaboss from the Dominion box that came out last year for Age of Sigmar. Tall thin orcs with stumpy legs that live in swamps and are cunning and such. The paint is based on lots of drybrushing with glazes over the top, both for speed and to get some natural texture/untidiness in the skin and cloth. I previously painted these hobgrots/hobgoblins with similar techniques but a warmer finish on the skin: I'm not quite sure where the Killaboss is going yet, but hopefully it'll work out. Cheers, Will
Hi all, I've been a bit distracted lately and not had a whole lot of modelling time, but I still build figures in front of the TV when I want to switch my brain off. Sometimes I even paint them! These are Hobgrots/Hobgoblins from the new Age of Sigmar box - nice simple two- or three-part models in traditional slottabases. The sculpts have a great balance between detail and paintability - there are loads of details but they well-defined and the brush seems to find them pretty easily. I painted one to try them out and then applied the same recipe to another four. They're a bit different to the approach I've been using for the last couple of years as I primed them with a dark blue-green and then did some vigorous drybrushing as a base for the skin. Then lots of washes and glazes on top of that to smooth things out and get the colours right. The bases are my take on a sulphur swamp. I was very happy after painting the first one (above) but when I finished the other four the other night I thought maybe the armour is too consistent looking, and the metals are rather flat in the photo. I'll try and sponge some of the highlights and rust rather than brush/stipple them for the next five and see how that goes. Once they're done there are some interesting characters and monsters and things to get on with - there's a lot of stuff in that box Cheers, Will
