Painting Blog, Part 5

I am here to talk painting today!  It has been a while and I did promise to give you guys the scoop on what I’m doing with Kari.  So lets dig in!

Hey Rune Warriors,

Wow, it has been way too long, and I apologize for that.  With our podcast aiming to meet a twice a month release schedule and me learning how to edit video for our youtube channel the blog has fallen through the cracks.  I’m going to try to convince Josh to write his two posts about the morale deck and dice analysis soon, so stay tuned for that.

I am here to talk painting today!  It has been a while and I did promise to give you guys the scoop on what I’m doing with Kari.  So lets dig in!

Kari is getting the same treatment as my other Daqan with the purple and gold, but since she is a hero it is worth taking the time to do her wraps and tails in white.  I also did her fletching and the patch on her cape in green as a bit of a tie in with my elves (post on that later).

The fun thing I am doing is with her base.  I am using Vallejo Dark Earth Texture to build up the front of the base and I purchased Ardus from FFG’s Descent Lieutenant Pack to cut up.  It’s a bit spendy to just have a guy cut up in front of her, but I couldn’t resist having a bit of extra flavor.  I built up the front with basing paste and while soft pushed some select pieces I cut off of Ardus into the mud.

After it dried I did a base coat on Ardus, the rocks and then washed the entire base down in Citadel’s Agrax Earthshade.

After some highlights (which for a hero were far more extensive than I did for my chumps), I added some drybrushing to flush out the mud.  Then I added some of Citadel’s Middenland Tufts.  Pro Tip: Wait for the super glue to dry before you matt spray.  The matt spray with the wet super glue created the white base to the tufts you see on Kari.  So for winter grass that might be a cool effect.  It kinda plays here so I didn’t uproot them and start over, but you may not want this on your tufts so FYI.

Here is a bit of a close up.

And here is Kari at eye level.  I was actually very lucky to hit the eyebrows very subtly and get the eyes in the first shot.  I must be getting better at this painting thing.
