From the Horrific Journeys expansion, the Warlocks are much better quality than those of the core set. Being hard plastic and better sculpted, they were a delight to paint. Admittedly, they aren’t the most dynamic in pose, but there’s something about them that made me smile.
As for painting, they were really easy. I primed black and then added some German Grey zenithal highlights using the airbrush. In hindsight, I could have gone a shade lighter, as the German Grey doesn’t stand out at all really. The suit was highlighted last thing, using variations of Sombre and Heavy Grey.
I had a little fun with the flesh, as I wanted it quite pale, and used just two colours, Tan and Pale Flesh. I do a lot of playing around with flesh, maybe not the best approach but it seems to work for me. I put on a base of Tan and then the extreme highlights of Pale Flesh. From there on its continued wet blends of the two colours, sometimes mixed together, sometimes neat. I spend far too long on minis like this when doing so, but I enjoy it and need the practice!
The whites were done in my usual manner – base Heavy Bluegrey, Layer Ghost Grey, highlight Dead White. For the off-white waistcoat, though, I only added a single layer of Wolf Grey over the base.
The eyes are all black, as on the token, and it gives him a bit more of a sinister look, otherwise, I think he’d look far too jolly!
That’s for a little while, as far as MoM goes, I’ve yet to prep the next lot and instead I’m busy on Ronan and Drax, more of which in a later post…
