Painting mojo returning

Hi All,

I'm not really one for incessant WIP posts, but I feel the mojo returning and wanted to share what progress I've had.


Betsy is pretty much done. You can't tell from the picture but her udders are the same color as her snout.


I've started the hair color on young Curt and the ladies. I'm trying a recipe from one of the Reaper learn to paint kits. The base for the brown hair is Mahogony Brown and the base for the Blonde is a mix of Palomino Gold and Oiled Leather. I thought it would be interesting to try as I never thought of doing hair this way. I still need to do various highlights and touch ups.


Lastly the 54mm size wooden knights I think I've gotten over the color scheme and how to get the heraldry transferred to them. Now I'm just trying to figure out what areas are what for painting. The Skull and Crown blog and shop thankfully have lots of painted examples.

Thanks for looking.

  5. Not often you get to say 'nice cow' to someone, so I'd better avail myself of the opportunity! Nice cow!

    Cheers,
