Happy Family Day to any readers residing in Alberta. #Squaduary is now in stage 3 will be coming to a close soon. I started the month with Tree Revenants. I’m pleased to say that the squad is complete and I will be revealing them closer to the end of the month. Today I want to show my progress on the Kurnoth Hunters with greatbows, my second of two pledges for the event.
My first step is painting the bark. I based the models with Scorched Brown and shade with Nuln Oil. I drybrushed Scorched Brown, Dark Flesh, Sylvaneth Bark, Graveyard Earth with a final dusting of Terminatus Stone. I realized after all the drybrushing happened that I was a wee bit harder with my brush strokes. These models look lighter than my other models. I contemplated starting over again but decided to go with it. Once the other colours are down I don’t think there will be much difference. Once way to find out I guess.
Now I’ve added some more colours to the models.
I’ve used Rakarth Flesh for the a base for the sprites and the exposed tree “flesh”. I painted an arrow Rakarth Flesh because I originally planned to paint the whole arrow white with a Gulliman Blue glaze. These models do not have too much pink on them so I changed my mind. I can use pink on the fletching to up the pink factor.
It’s too bad the Huntmaster is the only model with fungus growing on it. I like the look of the fungus. It adds some character to the model. The base colour is Scab Red with a Squig Orange highlight. I applied a coat of Agrax Earthshade after.
I plan on gluing two of the quiverlings after the bases are drybrushed. They sit low to the base. It will be easier to paint them separate. I did glue one quiverling since it’s pose didn’t hinder me from painting it, the base or the Kurnoth Hunter.
The gold was based with Retributor Armour and two coats of Burnished Gold.
One of the wings was knocked off this sprite. I was trying to figure out how to fix it and I decided on cutting off the remaining three wings to give it a serpentine look. Problem solved.
I still have a bit of work to with these models. I have no doubt that these models will be complete by the end of the month.
Thanks for reading. Be sure to check out the progress of the other #Squaduary participants.
