I started an Age if Sigmar army a while ago and went for Deepkin. I’ve not done anything ‘elfy’ before so wanted to do something different. I also really liked the Deepkin miniatures so that helped.
I did not want to copy the paint scheme from the book so thought about other biomes with water. Swamps came to mind and so I thought I would take that as a theme. I opted for greens and browns as the base colours, and then green tinged silver for metallics. These are the first finished squad, they are not my best work by far but they are a good first try in my mind.
The bases were the hardest part, I used mud texture paint and then mixed some sepia wash with some water resin to get the muddy water. I used some old bristles for reeds, some coral bits for plants and some dark brown flock as well. I might try adding some green onto the next set as they are a bit dark still.
I also need to finish the character, but that will come tomorrow, as well as airplanes!
