About me - I'm a Christian (Pentecostal), Married to Wendy, two step children Thomas and Natalie, dog and rose-crested cockateel(Beauty). I've been a miniature hobbyist for over twenty years; I occasionally wargame at my local club or at home with friends. I set up my commission painting service in 2014, so I spend a lot of time painting!

Workbench – Basecoat – Crimson Fists Sternguard

Workbench – Basecoat – Crimson Fists Sternguard


So, the last time you saw these minis they were undercoated black. Since then they have had their basecoat layer added. The dark blue armour was airbrushed Vallejo Game Color Night Blue; this was applied at about a 60 degree angle to the mini. This ensured that the black remained in the deepest recesses.
Once dry (with the aid of a hairdryer) Imperial Blue was added from about 40 degrees, concentrating on the upper areas of the mini (top of helmet/pads/limbs etc). Once this layer was dry, I started work with the brushes.
 
Basecoats
The crimson armour and eye lenses: Mephiston Red (Citadel)
 
Wax of purity seals: Scarlett Red (Vallejo)
 
Leather packs, scroll paper and gold areas: Beasty Brown (Vallejo)
 
Metal areas: Leadbelcher (Citadel)
 
The base: Black (Vallejo)
 
The next stage will be to airbrush a layer of Vallejo Gloss Varnish, before adding oil washes.
