Here is my current WIP - a beastman unit for Oldhammer weekend.
I'm putting together a Khorne unit, with 5 Bob Olley "goatmen" and 5 Jes Goodwin "dogmen." The unit champion can be seen front row on the left.
Here is a cloe-up of one of Bob's goatmen, a lovely figure:
I've gone with traditional Khorne colours for this unit. My new best friend for this particular painting exercie is the old Citadel brown ink, which gives a fantastic depth of shade:
I'm currently building up a narrative for my Oldhammer weekend chaos force, built on the stats I rolled, which I'll cover in more detail in a future post.
Looking very nice Steve. They will give my Slanneshi Ogres something to wade into! I too am a big fan of those old inks and I use them all the time. I feel that they give a greater sense of depth than the modern washes, but that is just me. Any chance of a close up of that champ? I don't recognise the model. Conversion?ReplyDelete
I suspect that the old inks and washes need to be used in different ways. E.g. I've shaded the horns with devlan mud wash - I think ink might have been a bit of an overkill there.ReplyDelete
That champ is just a regular khornate beastman - you'll find him with the other khornates in various eavy metal articles and adverts.
You are correct about the inks. I have found that you need to experiment with different combinations of ink and water for different effects. I also try and follow Andy Craig's tip of 'never just using an ink straight out of the bottle'. Mixing ink with paint also creates some striking effects.ReplyDelete
In that case my beastmen are covered in broken rules... :-)Delete
Nice! Really like Bob's beastmen (goatmen). Nice to see them old inks used as well. I haven't used mine in a while - maybe time to give them a ago. Thx/HansReplyDelete
I love Bob's beastmen, they are among my favourites. A lot of them seem more Nurgle than Khorne, but what the heck!Delete
Looking good Steve - The Chaos table is going to be a real treat to see with Warbands like this!ReplyDelete
