Just a quick update on two of my projects:
Today I worked with the aasimar paladin.
The only reason she has flesh tone on her face is that I had, a while back, accidentally poured out too much of the flesh color and pulled out a bunch of minis and started painting faces.
Then I started working on the armor:
Next, the gloves and pouches:
I know the paint job isn’t perfect, but I intend on following up later with touch-ups.
Next is the gold for the hilts and the scabbards:
It was then that I realized my brush wasn’t really doing the job, and I started looking at the brush I was using, which is a Citadel brand base coat brush that I got with the starter Space Marine paint set.
It’s pretty rough, and it’s not really holding its shape, causing pain to get places where I don’t want it to get.
So then I decided to bust out my Nolzur’s Marvelous Brush Set that I had recently purchased.
I mean, it looks like a decent brush set. And for $12 it’s not a bad bit.
As you can see it comes with a detailed brush, a base coat brush, and a dry brush. Again, not a bad catch for $12. Until, I opened up the base coat brush…
Needless to say, I am not impressed. I plan on taking them back to the store and exchanging them, hopefully to get a nice set.
As I am lacking, at the moment, a decent base coat brush, I will leave this as is.
I hope you enjoyed this painting update!
Until next time, Dear Readers…
