I finally found some time to get some base colours onto The God OF Taint. I don’t usually do Work In Progress posts when it comes to painting but thought some of you might find it interesting.
I just want to make a special mention on Vallejo Paints. Wow! Their range is great. The viscosity of the paint is brilliant and the dropper bottles shit all over GW pots. I had half a pot of Zandri Dust. from GW the last time I painted something (about a month ago) and its now dried solid. I can see me using Vallejo paints more and more. I’m guessing there’s some sort of chart out there in the World Wide Web that has the alternative Vallejo colour for GW colours.
I base coated all the main fleshy parts in a slightly orangey tone and did the upper fleshy sections in a mid brown flesh tone. The horns were all done with zandri dust (I had a little left over in another older pot). I used a light bone for the pulpit, leadbelcher for all the metal section, a dark brown for the spikes near the horns and then a mid grey for the statue. Then I did nuln wash over the metal areas, flesh wash over the orange flesh and Agrax earthshade over the horns and darker flesh areas. Oh I also used camoshade (green wash) over the bone pulpit.
The head was done with the technical paint from GW called Nighthaunt Gloom. With the Zenithal technique done underneath the head now has a really cool natural shaded look to it.
I also started adding some muted colours to the base.
Still have lots to do but I’m liking how it’s going.
