So I put an hour or so into my super secret project. This time I have worked on the head of the Warboss and the squig.
Next up, the squig. I have been wanting to paint a squig for ages and here is my first attempt. I know that a lot of people will paint their squigs in many different shades, but I really like the iconic red squig.
So what I did was to lay down Hormagaunt Purple, then I dry brushed Mordian Blue and then Bleached Bone. I finished up this phase up with a huge wash of Leviathan Purple. Once that had dried, I did a very light dry brush of skull white.
For the teeth I started out with Scorched Brown then Bleached Bone and hit the tips with Skull White. I then washed the teeth with Ogryn Flesh to get a blood-spattered teeth look. The claws were similarly done. Scorched Brown, Bleached Bone, Skull White, but then a Devlin Mud wash.
The only thing I am not happy with are the eyes. I tried to just get a dot of Fiery Orange, but it doesn't look distinct enough. I'm thinking of maybe hitting a Baal Red wash, but I'm afraid that it going to make it worse. We'll see.
