I’ve been struggling to get any hobby stuff done since starting my new job, partly because I’m also trying to do the garden at the same time, but at least I’ve a few things in the bag to share, such as these Temple Guardians.
For these, I returned to using inks, as I had for many of the MoM minis, and as usual started with a zenithal prime. This was followed by a healthy coat of Black Green Ink, which was then drybrushed with Deck Tan. Adding a little Wolf Grey to the Tan, I selectively drybrushed further highlights. I finished with a wash of Citadel’s Athonian Camoshade.
The only other things worth talking about are the gems, which were based in Silver and then painted using Spiritstone Red from Citadel’s technical range. This is supposed to paint realistic gems and lenses – judge for yourself, but I don’t think it did too bad a job.
Well, that’s the Temple Guardians, real easy and were done in double quick time, that is, once the ink had dried!
I’ve got a few more MoM minis done – Serpent People, Formless spawn – and so I’ll have a few more things to post about over the next few weeks. Other than that, though, things are going to be pretty light in terms of activity from me on here. I need to get the bit of garden I’m working on finished (I say bit, but at the moment I’m taking up 100square meters of lawn!) for when we host a family party, and so I’m trying to squeeze that in between my shifts.
I have a few posts part done, which I may get to complete, but I’m way behind on what my fellow bloggers are doing – just bear with me, I’ll get there in the end. I’m sure things will settle down in a few weeks and then I can play catch up, but in the meantime, if all is quiet here, then it’s because I’m knee deep in mud!
