Paint Table Saturday 224 - Progress on Bretonnians and Wizards

Hi All,

The weeks seem to be flying by. I'm getting a little bit of hobby time in the evenings while we watch the Winter Olympics. I've never really been very engaged in the Olympics in general but I'll follow on occasion.

Anyway, put paint on a few areas here and there.


Did all the base flesh, base and highlights on the padded leather and a base coat for the Blue. As you can see I went with a Blue outer robe for Holbon Toddlebrew. What may not be as clear is that I over painted the old flesh on all the retainers and wizards with Reaper Tanned Shadow, partly to be challenge compliant and partly because I feel like the old flesh color is a caricature of itself. For Mazda I tried the Fair flesh tone. I want him pale, but I didn't want to do more Vampiric flesh.

The other thing I tried just yesterday was putting down a layer of Orange Brown over the Grey primer and then putting the Marigold Yellow on. I think it works better than multiple coats of Marigold Yellow that just leave me frustrated.

I just realized that I forgot to share the finished Ape pictures on the G+ page, so I'll do that.

Happy Year of the Dog. We went out for Lunar New Year dinner last night with friends, it was great.

Happy painting.

    1. Thanks Foss, I got the wizards all in one pack I think. There were a whole bunch of them in the various flyers and catalogs. I have one more on its way from the UK.

    1. Thanks airborne. I've tried to bridge the gap in the hobby after being away for so long. I come up with weird ways to approximate modern best practices.
