Me: Well, what should I do now. Should I get started on next months Emperors Children?I tend to end up with bits of half finished projects sat around my computer desk and on the window ledge and... well... on every flat surface going. So even though I am mostly thinking about my 30k stuff at the moment I don't struggle to find stuff to get on with. I picked out these guys because their were four of them and I thought I could get through them reasonably quickly.
Wife: furiously painting salamanders no, that would make me feel terrible. I'll never catch you.
Edge highlighted the black in two different colours to try and get some texture into what is otherwise a really monotone miniature. As I said the last time I put up some Harry Potter stuff, costume designs that work well on the screen are often not fantastic for painting onto tiny models.
I am pleased with the way the masks came out. I used a P3 colour called blighted gold, which is just a really nice evil looking greeny gold metallic, and not a shade replicated in the citadel paint range. Then a wash of agrax earthshade, and a deliberately harsh highlight of stormhost silver.
One thing to complain about with this range of models. Because, like a lot of things based on films or TV shows, the scale is a lot more realistic... weapons are tiny. The wands love to flick off, and break, and get lost. And it can be very aggravating at times.
