The Skaven Invasion: Painting Queek Headtaker Part 3

So here is part 3 of my guide to how I did Queek, and this pretty much finishes him off as a character, thought I will do the trophy rack and post that. Anyway....

a) This was done by first dry brushing the mail with Tin Bitz
b) Devlyn Mud wash
c) Another drybrush of 1:1 Tin Bitz and Dwarf Bronze on the raised areas/fold etc...
d) Finally a light dry brush of Dwarf Bronze

Chainmail Cloth
a) A simple coat of Shadow Grey
b) Badab Black wash
c) Reset the Shadow Grey leaving the darker colour in the recesses, and a fine highlight of shadow grey on the edges of the cloth.

a) Bestial Brown coat
b) 2:1 Bestial Brown : Bleached Bone as a total undercoat
c) 1:1 Bestial Brown : Bleached Bone coat, leaving the darker colour in the recesses
d) Bleached Bone on the larger areas, leaving the darker colours in the recesses
e) Free hand was Chaos Black painted directly on.

Both were:
a) Boltgun Metal
b) Heavy Badab Black wash, to the point where the metal was almost Black itself
c) Chainmail Silver stippled/dry brushed onto the beveled areas
d) Mithril Silver applied in SMALL quantities to the sharpest areas
e) Detailing was all done in gold
f) The both weapons were given a total wash of 2:1 wash of Ultramarines Blue and Goblin Green (Hawk Turquoise would work just as well)
g) Wood was Scorched brown drybrushed with 50:50 Scorched Brown: Tau Sept Ochre

Rats were painted Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown, Chaos Black and 2:1 Chaos Black: Skull White, eyes dotted red, tails were Dwarf Flesh washed in Devlyn Mud. Still need to highlight them.

Well that is part 3 of how to paint Queek, I will post the trophy rack, rat detailing and warp stone in Part 4. If anyone would like to drop me a message as to what they think of my method, it is always welcome. Well having now aquired the Skaven army book, and the Rule Book winging its way to me as we speak, it's time to drive the Dwarves from their holds!

Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)
