Hello again. I've had a lot going on, so there's been a lack of blog posts. I've still been painting like crazy though, so there is no shortage of pictures.
First up is the magnetized Dragon Prince from the High Elf dragon.
Next up are four Dwarf heroes.
A couple months back I posted about creating your own washes (which you can find at http://mattsterbenz.blogspot.com/2014/05/making-your-own-custom-washes.html). I came up with a new gold recipe as well as a recipe for the grey beard on the Runesmith.
The gold on the slayer was given a burnt orange wash of Yellow Ink, Dark Flesh, and Polymer Varnish. The gold was then highlighted up to Mithril Silver, and was finally given a very light glaze of the original wash. This makes the highlights look less pale and more yellow.
The beard was basecoated with VGC Stonewall Grey. Shade with a mixture of Stonewall Grey and the black wash mixture. (I like to add a little bit more varnish and water. This makes a nice grey wash, great for shading over light basecoats). Once the wash dries, highlight with Stonewall Grey, followed by layers all the way up to white.
