Tomb Kings archers

16 02 2010

Completed 8 Tomb Kings archers, the first of my first Warhammer Fantasy Battle army! I’m quite pleased with the results, so the rest should be a snap to do. My buddy Colin lent me this pot of pumice stone filler type stuff, which I panited onto the bases for a realistic sandy/desert type effect (Thanks Colin!). The Skellies are relatively easy to do:

  • Spray undercoat in white
  • Liberal wash of Devlan Mud all over (be as messy as you like, but make sure you get all the nooks!)
  • Drybrush Menoth White Base (or equivalent, e.g. Bleached Bone)
  • Drybrush with Menoth White (or equivalent. You want a slightly off-white)
  • Hey presto – painted bones!

And for the blue parts:

  • Undercoat with Hawk Turquiose
  • Wash with blue ink
  • Wash with Devlan mud
  • Add Menoth White to Hawk Turquoise for some simple edged highlights

And for the gold/brass bits…

  • Basecoat Shining Gold
  • Wash of chestnut ink
  • Drybrush of Shining Gold
  • Light drybrush of Brass Balls
  • Tadaaaaa!

The red was simply Mechrite red base, then highlighted with 1/1 mix of Mechrite and Blood red. I didn’t focus too much on these highlights, as this is supposed to be a quick army to paint. Blacks were simply line highlighted with Greatcoat Grey with a thin line of Codex grey to finish.

For the bases:

  • Basecoat Graveyard Earth
  • Drybrush Menoth White Base
  • Light drybrush Menoth White
  • Snakebite Leather for the base edges (two coats required for this, else the white will show through.)

Here they are:

C+C welcome!

Cheers
