The next few steps aren't quite as detailed as my Five Step Flesh. But I will walk you through a few of the recipes I used as I finished up... uhhh... Yeah, I finished them :P
This gives a really dark base point to start with. Really allowing me to get nice shading on the armor.
I then began basing, Elmers White glue was slathered onto the bases and the figures were dipped into a bucket of sand. After allowing them to dry for 4 hours I grabbed some MIG Track Brown Pigment and began caking the base and the feet and the loin cloths of these guys. It was very messy. After applying the pigment I sprayed each figure with a Krylon Matte Finish, to lock the pigment in place and give some protection to the paint job. Finishing touches were to paint the base edges with Rackham Black, and add an Army Painter Battlefields Wilderness Tuft to the base.
And here you are, a few shots of the finished project.
I hope this write up was cohesive and understandable. These two posts are kind of a first for me as far as really trying to explain step by step how my brain works as I paint. Please let me know what you think. If you like this, then I would be willing to do other similar types of tutorials. If it is not understandable.. PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Im really lookin for some good critiques on this. I'd like to be able to produce helpful tutorials, so feedback is very much wanted.
Five figs in five.....errrrr two days! Completely possible, I had my doubts, but with some really killer sculpts and a plan of attack you could be staring at a fully painted unit in just a few short days.
Thanks for watching!!
