Day 4! Proteus and a Succubus!

This truly is a speed paint. I'm using washes and inks to get these models done as fast as possible. 

-Prime White
-Skin is washed with Citadel Technical Oxide paint. It is the perfect consistency to get the blue I want. 
-P3 Magenta watered down to a glaze and then wet applied to the base coat around folds of skin and anywhere that needs to look funky
-Reaper Ghost White watered down and then glazed over the other two colors
-Final hit of ghost white over anything that looks suspect. 
-Chitin and bone is covered in brown ink 
-second coat of brown ink applied to the shadowed areas. 
-Reaper aged bone added to claws and bone spurs/ used to highlight the ink (WAIT FOR THE INK TO DRY) 
-Reaper polished bone for final highlights
-P3 Meridius Blue for the "circles" at the beasts' jaws. Highlighted with mixed blue and ghost white quick hit of leviathan purple citadel wash around the edges for shadow.
-liberal application of citadel Blood technical paint. 

Typhon took about four hours from start to finish, Proteus and the Ravagore were about 2.5 each. The naga and the succubus were about 45 mins a piece. Lylyth is a totally different paint job, done on a black spray coat, and took about 2 hours. Not bad for only working after my wife and daughter go to bed! 

Tomorrow is the Blackfrost Shard!

Day 3: Ravagore and Naga

So this evening saw the completion of the ravagore and the naga. I'm working quickly so things aren't perfect and neat, but I feel like it is working on these models. The bloody maws and claws are fun to pull off!

Tomorrow is Proteus!

50 points of Legion in 7 Days.

Hey blogosphere. It has been a while. I have lots of new models to show you, if I ever get up enough energy to photograph everything. Today's return to blogging is to chronicle a little project I have going on this week.

At last week's Warmahordes night, the Carney Gaming Division of Nerd so Hard University delegation to the Titan Games team tournament was eagerly practicing so we could not lose. Following our games and several drinks, my esteemed team mate told us that he was bringing an unpainted army to the tournament.

This could not stand.

Challenge accepted.

So I have seven days to paint his 50 point Legion army.

(Why do I talk when I drink?)

So, night one is down. I spent a long time working on a scheme. eLylyth is painted and Typhon is half done. Pics for the big T below.
I spray things...

Tomorrow night is all about finishing off Typhon and getting a ravagore done as well.
