His hair is painted with orange and red using the original Citadel Paints from the Space Marines set (the orange is supposed to be the highlight color for Blood Angels!). Rest of the paint is all Delta Ceramcoat.
He's based on the "Real Flagstone" slotta base from my prior post.
I hadn't realized how addicted I had become to using dark washes, and how muddied up my minis were becoming.
|I avoided using metallics on the axe, and instead used greys. I think it really works well. My 12 year old said it looked "Cartoony" - I replied "Perfect!" It looks like the axe is carved out of stone - perfect for a dwarf.|
Also, I photographed him in my "photo box", but using direct sunlight (thank you Spring!) as the prime lighting and diffused sunlight as top and side lighting. Worked out well, getting all the highlights much better than with the interior lighting pics I've been using as of late.
Now that he's ready for action, I'm looking forward to getting him on the table.
Thanks for stoping by!
