I had some time to kill on Tuesday, a customer was coming by the shop and I thought it would be a good idea to have some painting done. I didn’t want to commit to a big project but small one would make me happy.
I am in the groove of painting my Mantic Elf Army, and I have been in the groove for a while now. I decided to do my casualty marker for the game.
In the Kings Of War game, wounds are tracked not with the removal of miniatures from a regiment but with the accumulation of the wounds attached to the regiment. With every wound the regiment takes it makes it easier for the regiment to break. When the regiment breaks, there is NO RALLY phase, they are gone. This honestly speeds up the game. Maybe I will ramble about the Kings of War rules at some point.
I prepped the base with some stickers i found in a stationary book. It works, no?
The bits box was raided for some bits and some stones from my aquarium container.
Back to the painting, I began with a white primer using Army Painter’s Matt White.
The elf was don using the White base and Army Painter Green Wash, the base used Army Painter Leather Brown and Army Painter’s Fur Brown. I used a mixture of Battleground Black and Brown for a nice flow of textures.
I think painter’s should from time to time do pieces like this. It helps kill the monotony of regiment painting and it also helps with understanding composition.
This one took 2 hours.
