91st post - The Uruk-Hai Redemption!
The Uruk of Isengard is now finished and rescued from the miserable state he was (broken sword, some detail loss... you can see it here).
I must say I'm happier than I thought I would be, tough I've felt some kind of uncertainty in numerous parts when painting.
I think the skin is the aspect that's less well painted, but overall I'm really happy with the miniature, specially with the free hand... I must have been blessed by the Valar there!
I've also decided to try some new things, like the Blood for the Blood God from Citadel, for which I'm really pleased!!
2- The Skin: Basecoated with Dark Flesh (old citadel paint); Washed with Agrax Earthshade; Highlighted with a mix of Dark Flesh and Vallejo's Basic Skintone, progressively lighter (3 highlight fases).
3- The Hair: Basecoated with Vallejo's Dark Grey; Washed with Nuln Oil; Drybrushed with Administratum Grey.
4 -The Metallics: Basecoated with Army Painter's Plate Mail Metal; Washed with Nuln Oil; Drybrushed (light) with Plate Mail Metal; Highlighted with Runefang Steel; Glazed with a very thinned down Nuln Oil; Weathered with a very thinned down Agrax Earthshade all over the armour.
5- Details: for the blood I've used Blood for the Blood God; the white hand was made with Army Painter's Matt White and lots of patience.
|This photography doesn't show the model properly. I just like the ambiental look of it.|
And that's all!
