I had this Dragon Forge resin piece finished earlier in the week, but was trying to get the squad of IG off the table this week as well.
Once I used a larger brush to drybrush the grey on it looked better. Then I used a sponge to stipple on some greens to look like lichen on stone. Finally I picked out the small skulls with reaper bone triad (09058-09060) and slopped my grunge wash all over it. I'm reasonably happy.
The IG are proving fairly fiddly.
I always hate getting to the final touch up stage. It feels like you are just going back over the same colors in a circle as you try to fix the places where you slopped paint on an adjacent part. I thought I would be able to add these to the skull thing for BeerMaW 13, but then I dotted their eyes.
His look ok in this view, but if you zoom in it is a definite cat eye look. Some are much worse. I used XS Pitt pen and am finding it more difficult. In the past it felt like you could easily dot the iris, now it feels like you need to move the tip to get the ink to come off. this gives more of a line than a circle or dot. I probably shouldn't do eyes last, but I always do.
I also have been trying to figure out how to do their shoulder markings. These are pretty new hammer. Do I go more old school? Do I use decals or free hand? I haven't decided yet.
Happy painting everyone.
