Still some more work…

Looking at a more recent photograph of Ned Buck I realise that I still have some more work to do on the model after giving him a shading wash, and painting his base.

I painted the base with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. Then I drybrushed the base with Citadel Ushbati Bone. Unfortunately I maanged to get some of this on his shotgun, so that will need to be re-done.

In addition I think I might go back and highlight a few areas, notably his hands, to add some more depth to the model.

Basing Ned Buck

Having given Ned Buck a wash, I painted the base with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. Then I drybrushed the base with Citadel Ushbati Bone.

I will then glue on some Citadel Mordheim Turf.

I have accidentally painted his shotgun, with the base colour, so this will need to be rectified, and there are some further highlights I want to add.

Painting Gunfighters

I have done some more work on my Old West gunfighters.

I am keeping the paint jobs relatively simple, so I can do them “quickly”, though “quickly” for me often means rather slowly…

The method is to paint the basecoats of the different aspcts of clothing, shoes, hats, guns and flesh. The models are then finished with a wash (or shade) to add shadow, tone down the basecoats and blend the colours where required.

The models were mounted on two pence pieces as bases, they have some Green Stuff added to the bases to add texture. Pieces of slate were added to some of the models.

Once the model is finished, the base is painted with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. After it is drybrushed with Citadel Ushbati Bone. Finally some Citadel Mordheim Turf is added.

One of my finished models is Emmet Gates.

Basing the Old West

I mentioned before that I wasn’t initially happy with my basing of my Old West miniatures so have been adding green stuff to the coins I was using for bases.

This should mean that when I come to paint the bases with textured paint it should mean the bases don’t look so coin-like.

Ned Buck

I was lucky enough to get for one Christmas a few years back two packs of Foundry Old West Outlaws (thank you Simon). I am in the process of painting the models using a variety of colours.

This is Ned Buck from the VOW232 The Outlaws blister. I painted his coat Brown Violet (887).
