Paint Table Saturday 192 - Balthazar and Philomena Volapuk

Hi All,

Just a quick post to show what I completed last week and will be painting this week.
 I decided to try and do the Beer Phase Miniature a Week challenge (#BeerMaW).

Since I have a bunch of Colony 87 figures primed, and I've been on a Necromunda/Shadow War kick, I thought I'd go with those.

So I finished ole Balthazar here yesterday. This is a different picture than the one I posted to facebook. The lighting is more natural and I just left the camera on auto. I had always intended to do my Space Nobles with Vampiric flesh tones, but reading Whiskey Priest's post here really brought it home for me.

Next I'll be doing Balthazar's wife, Philomena. I have the vague idea that she is some kind of cybernetic zombie. Maybe I'll bring out the new Zombie flesh triad.

So I used white with a wash of grey for the boots, straps and trim. Ultramarine for the cloak and pants.

Walnut for the staff and as a shade mixture and wash for the fur. Intense brown as the fur base and then drybrush with blackened brown and intense brown. Bronze and Gold for the jewelry.

Vampiric flesh for the flesh. Palomino Gold with a wash of Chestnut gold for the braid and fringe. I probably could have gone darker.

Red triad for the cloak detail. Grass green for the jewels with Walnut and white mixed in to make the shade and highlight. Carnage red for the Vampire eye effect.

Sapphire Blue and Sky Blue for the hair. Pink Horror and Titillating (?) Pink in mixes and washes for the jacket.

There you have it.
