This first post for 2017!
Happy New Year, I made no resolutions this year. #justsaying
My painting table is a mess, there are literally miniatures coming out of from almost every crack from on the table. This not always good, as there is a casual malaise about what to paint and WHEN to paint it.
Behind my laptop, between the two small speakers lay a single Mantic Elf. He has been there for as long as I can remember. I have always wanted to paint a King’s Of War Elf army but somehow found myself purchasing a dwarf army.
The Mantic elf is slender and very detailed, in fact you don’t see much detail until you look closely enough. The armor gave the figure a “High” elf vibe and the thought of painting regiments upon regiments of elves was not my idea of fun. I needed a fast painting technique and an easy scheme.
This figure was prepped months ago to find that particular scheme.
Still clearing the store, I picked this fella up from the table and walked outside to give it a Matt White cover and finally decided to just go for a scheme I could reproduce quickly.
So, the figure was given a wash of Army Painter’s Green Tone and that was all it took.
This of course gave the elf a more “Wood” elf feel, but it somehow felt right.
I did the skin and spear, in Skeleton Bone and Army Painter Soft Shade to finish.
Now…. A regiment?
