Hi everyone, I wanted to give a quick tutorial on how I go about painting up my miniatures. I'll be using one my of my Hell Divers, I cleaned it, attached the backpack and glued it onto a US penny.
Then I used superglue to attach RR ballast (fine ballast from woodland scenics, a good value and a nice even size) onto the penny, being careful not to get any on the miniature. Then I prime the whole figure and paint the base with a khaki color. This helps to seal the sand in. Then I highlight with an ivory color.
This is the first part of my tutorial, I'll post the second soon! Please let me know if you folks have any suggestions!
|Figure base coated with a grey primer, and the base painted with a khaki color and highlighted with a lighter color, I then went over the figure to make sure it was a solid grey color.|
|My favorite wash, Strong Tone by Army Painter, works great.|
|First step was to water down the wash just a bit so it's not so heavy.|
