WIP: Chumbondas #3

Last night I did the second drybrush with Iraqi Sand. This actually came out quite stark when it had dried, so I repeated the washes to tone it down (for the black wash I used a bit less black and added some brown to the mix).

Pics when the washes had dried:

Today I painted the base coats of the equipment and weapons. They still need to have some detailing done as well as highlighting. After the highlights, I'll go straight to the Klear/ink coat. Mind you, it might be a good idea to paint the ground colour and drybrush it before I do that step ;-)

So, pics with equipment and weapons base coats done:


  1. I've seen you over at Ray and Angry's pages and I thought I'd stop by and say hello. I just started painting figures myself and am still learning. I hope you don't mind if I follow you and add you to my blogroll. It would be nice to have a woman painter to learn from!!

    1. Hi Anne! Great to have you on board! :)

      I'm not sure I'm the best person to learn from - I'm still learning myself! ;)

      Hmmm, you're follower #100. I guess that means it is time for me to do a prize draw (I believe that is somewhat traditional).

  2. That's quite a shaggy horde , nice use of washes there.
