94th post - Painting Denethor! (tutorial)
So, here I am presenting another painted miniature, this time is Denethor!
As said in the 92nd post, I was going to try a little different thing with the base, and I can say now that was a success in my opinion.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the painting, tough i didn't got the desired effect on the fur, but well, that's a process that comes with time.
Compared to other models, this one wasn't that fun to paint due to the boring black/grey/white colour scheme, although the face has a great amount of detail, making it the funniest part to paint.
1- Chain Mail:
Basecoated with Plate Mail Metal (Army Painter); Washed with Nuln Oil (Citadel); Drybrushed with Runefang Steel (Citadel).
Basecoated with Plate Mail Metal (Army Painter) followed by Old Gold (Vallejo); Highlighted with Auric Armour Gold (Citadel).
The lower third was basecoated with Dark Grey (Vallejo), the medium third with Stormvermin Fur and the higher third with Administratum Grey (both from Citadel); Washed with Nuln Oil (Citadel); Drybrushed with Matt White (Army Painter).
Basecoated with Matt Black (Army Painter); Highlighted with a mix of black + dark blue, followed by Dark Grey (Vallejo); Glazed with a thinned coat of Nuln Oil (Citadel).
After the eyes, the face was basecoated with Cadian Fleshtone (Citadel); Shaded with Fleshtone Shade (Vallejo); Highlighted with Kislev Flesh (Citadel) and a mix of Kislev Flesh + Basic Skintone (Vallejo).
Basecoated with Stormvermin Fur (Citadel); Drybrushed with Administratum Grey (Citadel) and Matt White (Army Painter).
Rectangular pieces of fine cardboard glued to the base to give texture, painted black and drybrushed grey. Then, I applied a blue wash and drybrushed again with grey and white.
Now some scenic photos:
