Default Necromancer

Ok completed my Necromancer. Im fairly happy with how he came out, especially the face (i hate painting faces hence why i went with undead) Let me know what you think.

Looks good, very neat and tidy. I think a few washes would really make it pop though. Sepia on the cream of his cloak, agrax earthshade on the brown, badab black on the staff, and maybe a very light blue or green on the face to portray how unhealthy a necromancer should be would be a good start. You jthen just highlight with the original colour. Very simple, but very effective. I find washes have helped a lot of painters raise their game a notch or two.

Im always worried about doing washes, im not very good at them, its a shame i cant save it incase it goes wrong like a computer game. I might have a look at some tutorials to try and get a better idea on what to do.

Ok finished the first ten bases with the new style, first time basing to this complexity with sand, multy paint layers and them some dead grass:

They were based on this example:
Dustbowl
Basecoat: Tallarn Sand.
Highlight 1: Karak Stone.
Highlight 2: Ushabti Bone.
Rim: Steel Legion Drab.
Scatter: Dead Grass.

from this tutorial which was pretty good.

Hey all, been adding to my vampire counts. I have decided to create a Lahmian army so i have ordered some tomb kings shields to give it a more Lahmian feel. I have also picked up a garden of morr cheap on ebay so i am using parts of that as unit fillers. Hopefully it will give each unit more of a dynamic look.

Here is the first unit of skeletons, they are 6 wide and 8 deep. I have joined some of the bases together in groups of four and decorated them.

The coffin at the front will eventually have a wraith coming out of it, i wanted to give the model some height over all the overs.


Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
The Gunslinger
