I was just waiting for a comment about the meaty bone.
It was the only way I could think to describe it. [rofl]


Now where did I put my pills? [rolleyes]

Okay, just off my night shift and did a bit more to the staff.
I've given the bone an extra dry brush of Ushabti Bone to make it look a bit stronger. I've highlighted the edges of the red with a line of Troll Slayer Orange by running the brush with the sides of the bristles at approx 45° to the edging of the red..
I've added a solid base coat of Shining Gold to the skull surround and top of staff, followed by a thin line of Imperial Primer (an Acrylic version of the oils pin wash used to highlight aircraft panels).



Difficult to see the full effect of the Gold, so I switched off the lights and took another pic.



Now that's creepy [eek]

That's been a long day. The main colours I've used this time are mostly greys. Starting with a dark grey I drybrushed following layers with lighter and lighter greys until I ended up using pure white. Once these had all dried I then went from the white up to colour of bone and then light grey.



Whilst doing these dry brushings I never once washed or cleaned my brush. This enables all the different colour to mix and blend.

To finish I added the jewels in dark green with a blue blend, and one single white dot (which will be highly glossed). A lot of people ask me why I put a single white dot on the jewel. Well the answer is quite simple....because I can. After all I'm painting the model [rofl]

Gold was highlighted with Mithril Silver, and teeth with Pure White.

Here's the other pic with a few lights switched off.



Thanks for looking in.

[rofl][rofl][rofl] 'Bout all I'll say about that!

And thanks for the in-depth descriptions as you go. Very useful. The staff is looking great. Those touches of Gold. And I do get the white dot thing. You're supposed to do the same with pupils, right? (for reflected light)[smile]

Absolutely spot on, excuse the pun.

Thanks for your comments. We set this part of the forum up so that we could show various techniques used during a painting project. We invite members to ask questions on various topics that some step by steps won't allow you to do. If there's an area that they would like explained more we can stop and do just that.

During next year I'm hoping to do little projects devoted to one specific area, like hair, or eyes, or even how to produce simple bases so as not to overwhelm the model (one such base only reqires two coats of paint and it's done).

I have a fair bit of running around to do, and work commitments, as someone told me that it's Christmas time, so if I don't post much then don't worry.
Merry Xmas

As I posted that last reply I got my post from Eduard & Historex.
I now have my PE for my 1/35 Chieftain Mk 5, with a nice sheet of camouflage netting for the gun barrel and stowage.
From Hornet (via Historex) I have 5 character heads for the British Infantry Tank Riders for another AV project. These look really good as they all have soft berets and different expressions, nice one [thumb]


Santa must think I've been good this year ( actually it was my Bank Manager) [wink]

Have cleaned, constructed and primed the head of Nagash.



Using the same principles as the staff I have painted the crown gold and put down the base for the bones.



Next the wash...

Thanks Pete & Simon.

I speeded up the drying with a hairdryer (obviously not mine).

Decided just to go for it... only extra paints I used were Midnight Blue with Turquoise edging.
Still needs a few touches, but here you are a bright and dark photo.
Enjoy.



Merry Christmas
