For some strange reason I decided to get some painting done in the late afternoon. I do need to get more figures done and the brushes were all within reach. I have been meaning to get in some Warzone: Resurrection game time in. The few games with the plastic looking figures did not do it for me. I pulled two big figures on display on my shelf to decide; Razide and ALAKAI
I placed Razide and ALAKAI side by side so i could decided which one to do and while ALAKAI looked awesome, I went with Razide. This new sculpt is really over the top. So this one was IT.
Ah…. Razide or to the uninitiated “Big Red Guy with Big Gun”.
This fella i had an eye on for a while. I saw some new pictures of Razide painted with a more normal skin tone and that really looked great. But hey, this is Razide! (If you google what this fella looked like before this sculpt, you’d see how the red skin just made him totally larger than red!)
So i began with a primer of ARMY PAINTER’s Matt Black and then a directional blast of Army Painter’s MATT WHITE spray to identify the highlights. A nice cover of ARMY PAINTER’s PURE RED was applied over the initial primer. This technique is bloody quick but what this technique also does is gives the figure nice definition and the undercoat of black and white helps the red on top shade and highlight the figure with almost no brush work or airbrush.
The feet and forearm were given a purple wash using ARMY PAINTER’s PURPLE wash. I have been wanting to try this for a while and the size of the figure game a chance to see how this technique would work.
The loincloth was Army Painter’s DESERT YELLOW and a SOFT TONE wash. The bits of “cybernetics” popping out of the figure’s massive frame is SHINING SILVER and PURPLE WASH.
Plaguedealer (thanks Fangir) was painted with ARMY PAINTER’s Bolt Gun Metal and Shining Silver with P3’s Armour Wash finishing the job.
