I can be very patient when it comes to a lot of things. Ie. People, Family, work etc but when it comes to the beloved hobby I, in the past, tended to rush a bit. There’s a lot to be said about taking your time and adding details etc. Don’t get me wrong, I think a coat, a wash and dry brush can look incredible, especially en masse but over the last twelve months, since Lord Julius Fendrake and Retinue actually, I find I take my time a lot more.
Take for instance my most recent post. Two Brothers.
I paid special attention to the armour. Even though it’s quite plain and done in a grey tone it actually has a base coat of turquoise. I wanted it to have a blue-ish hue. I also used leadbelcher to show scuffing on the edges of the armour here and there. I think it turned out quite well. I guess the trick is not to over do it. Those two approaches mixed with careful layering of Nuln Oil really helped me achieve the look I was going for. See below.
Patience really is a virtue.
