These are figures
from Wizards's now cancelled Chainmail game. The bulky little guy
is a minor demon called an Abyssal Maw. I start with a black base
on all of my figures any more. He was then drybrushed with greens
to bring out the wrinkly nature of his skin. His teeth were painted
Skull White than given a wash of Snakebite Leather, a Citadel paint.
Some Scab Red (another Citadel color) was added around his mouth
to give a bloody look. The base is sand from Asilomar (Thanks, Scott!)
in PVA glue (Elmer's) that was based in Scorched Earth, then drybrushed
with Snakebite Leather. Blood Red (yet another Citadel color) was
used for his eyes, which were given a couple of coats of gloss varnish
to make them shine.
Next is a hyena.
Scorched Earth was dry brushed over black, which was further drybrushed
in Snakebite Leather. the harness is Chaos Black with Boltgun Metal
studs, and his teeth are with, with a little Scab Red around his
muzzle. The base is sand from Lover's Point in Monterey/Pacific
Grove (again, Thanks, Scott!) in PVA and painted with Scab Red and
Blood Red. His eyes are also Blood Red.
see a Gray Elf Duelist. His garb is Dark Angel Green and Camo Green
on the sleeves and leggings, with gray on all of the leather, with
Skull White on the armor appliques. I used a little drybrushing
to find the details of those appliques, then cleaned them up with
a fine brush. His skin is Bronzed Flesh over Scorched Earth, and
his hair is Golden Yellow mixed with Skull White drybrushed. His
base is mixed sand from both the previously mentioned locations,
painted like the Abyssal Maw's. His sword and daggers are Chainmail
and Burnished Gold. The leather is Snakebite Leather, and his sash
is Regal Blue with increasing amounts of Skull White for highlights.
figures rather prominently in my style. It works very well for a
blended look, and works great for natural surfaces.
