He’s a three headed dragonspawn, and he’s a crazy model. I had loads of fun painting the model, and I’m looking forward to painting him for my own army some day. (He’s currently unassembled in a box.) This post is mostly mechanical (recipes), since most of my thoughts are reserved for Clash of the Titans.
For those of you living under a rock, this model is for Lost Hemisphere‘s Memory Machine effort to raise funding for Alzheimer’s Disease research. The army is a 35pt Rhyas Rear Guard Tier4 Theme list, and will be auctioned off at Templecon 2012. When I heard about the army, I offered to help G’daybloke, and he charged me with painting the warbeasts in the army, Typhon and a Nephilim Protector.
I started Typhon with a black undercoat. From there…
Skin: (P3)Bloodstone -> (P3)Khador Red -> (P3)Khador Red Highlight -> (GW)Gryphonne Sepia Wash
Chitin: (P3)Beaten Purple -> (GW)Hormagaunt Purple (stripes) -> (GW)Leviathan Purple Wash -> (GW)Hormagaunt Purple (stripes) -> (P3)Frostbite (edge stripes)
Mouth: (P3)Frostbite -> (GW)Baal Red Wash -> (GW)Gryphonne Sepia Wash
Teeth: (P3)Menoth White Base -> (P3)Menoth White Highlight -> (GW)Skull White
Head Sensors: (P3)Exile Blue -> 50/50 (P3)Exile Blue, (GW)Ice Blue -> (GW)Ice Blue
I used a Windsor & Newton Series 7 #1 for the entire project. Love that brush.
Anyway, enough words. Pictures!
…and of course, I accientally cliked post comment rather than finish my sentence, which was “that looks great, I can’t wait to see it in person!”
Thanks, I’m really looking forward to seeing the whole army together.
Very very nice…. Great job buddy. I love my windsor newtons as well. I would llike to get a few more myself.
I really need to get another #1, long. If you wanna split shipping on a brush order, let me know!
Wow, that’s a fantastic painting job. Love it! Last night I was actually pondering whether orange would go well with purple for Legion. Now I know!
