The first of many

Highlights on the back.

 Last night, I decided to move my painting efforts from the house to Stronghold Games while the other half played in a Magic tournament. It’s good to get out and about and drink someone elses coffee after all.

It was also the day when I decided to have a go at painting the first of the Black Hands. As I have mentioned before, I had blue in mind for the colour scheme, it was just knowing which shade and where I was going to put it. It took me about half hour of looking at the model to know what I was going to do.

I started off with a dark blue base colour – Kantor Blue and then using the trusty Psycho Brush to highlight in Alaitoc Blue and then final light catches in Hoeth Blue. I am rather pleased with how it turned out and can only work at perfecting the technique now.

I know the images are rather small here but you can click on them to see larger versions. I also only have an iPad in which to take pictures so I do apologize for the rubbishy resolution. I can only do so much after all!

Either way, it feels good to finally get the first dude painted and looking halfway decent. Only 999 more of the chapter to go!

Groovy shoulder-pads!
