PUP-date: Get It? Ugh.
For now, my craving for Necro has been satiated with a trip through my collection of Plano cases, thinking about what gangs I want to build and which ones I want to strip and repaint. The trick with Necro is that I get too deeply engrossed in too many projects, so I'll have to make sure I choose one gang at a time, work it to completion and move on. This has worked for the last few gangs I finishd and is the only way I'll get anything done.
The Ronin is first up. As you can see, I've decided not to go through with Non-Metallic Metals on the puppets. There are some models that require more attention and will look better with NMM, but by and large, I am going to save this for my Malifaux stuff. The reality is that, between washes and all the new techniques I've been workig on, metallics are much easier to work with and will allow me to finish the models much faster.
That said, here is the latest work I've done with NMM on the Witchling Stalker. I'm starting to get the hang of the technique and the large knife and chain on this model were great practice. This guy was just plain fun and I'm glad I have another one waiting for me.
The Cherub was a nice break in thi group of mostly drap colors. His wings are simply undercoated white, with dark bits based in Charadon Granite. The quill of each feather is picked out in dark brown and the whole thing gets a Devlan Mud (Umber wash in Vallejo-speak). Just a small highlight picks out the detail and he's done.
In the next couple of days, I'll be completing another three puppets, my first Piglet, Pandora and the Guild Hound. Once complete, I'll be over 10% complete with the puppets. Long way to go...
More to come.
