I have no real idea how I painted these. It involved layer after layer of Scorched Brown > Tallarn Flesh > Knarloc Green > Cobra Leather and then a good slather of Gryphonne Sepia over the top just to take the extreme baby-poo off the Tuffalos themselves; then blending in more Knarloc Green and Astronomican Grey to that last colour to highlight up the troll skin, with a spot of Badab Black over that.
Metals and leather and so on are quite lazy; basecoat/ink over stained gesso primer. I’m working to a template here, though, and after all that buggering around getting the skin tones to match, I wasn’t in the mood for further dallying.
And a better photo to shut Curis up.
Sneaking this one in between proper updates:
The first part of the Khador army I’m painting for Si, our Star Wars GM and Pathfinder guru, who’s given me his spare monitor and promised a Lizardman Blood Bowl team in return. I live in hope that he will actually play some games with these at some point.
Time spent sitting on Si’s mantelpiece: three years.
Time spent sitting on my table: two weeks.
Time spent actually painting: about six hours.
