I've been busy as a bee finishing these fellas up for the Masters tourney next weekend. I'm so relieved to be done that I cannot express it in words.
The skin was basecoated Vermin Brown. It was then inked in a P3 Sephia color mixed with a little black. From there I highlighted with Vermin Brown, and then mixed in consecutively more amounts of Elf Flesh for the remaining layers.
The rest of the model was painted very similarly to the rest of the army.
The second guy, the Musician, was also done in a skin tone that I had never done on a Bull Ogre before.
I was really just playing around with things when I painted the drum. I wanted it to look like it had been painted at one point, and then got all beat up over time (as he banged it around!). It was just a way to try something different on the same old models.
All that's left for the Masters is to get them packed up in the Pelican Case. It's a super tight, uncomfortable (for me) fit, but it's all I have.
I have no idea what I'll work on next. It's so nice to be free and clear of projects. Perhaps I'll pick up the half done Orctonnian pigasus rider, perhaps I'll work on something else. We'll see...
