Dry brushed using codex grey first and then gradually mixing in skull white.
All colours were applied as glazes, somewhere between 1 part paint and 2 parts water, sometimes 3 or 4 parts water, depends on the paint.
Armour - Ultramarine Blue, then a mix of Ultramarine Blue and Ice Blue on just the mid tone and highlight areas. Finished with a glaze of Blue Wash.
Metal - Boltgun Metal followed by a Brown Ink glaze.
A mix of Shining Gold and Burnished Gold was used on the top of the staff and a few areas on the armour.
Globe on staff - Ice Blue, then Ice Blue with a small amount of white. finished with a Blue Ink glaze.
Skin - Shadow Grey.
Cloth - Space Wolves Grey.
Eyes - Buonic Brown.
Scorched brown was used on the claws and parts of the legs to help define the shaded areas more.
Chaos Black under coat.
Dry brushed with Codex Grey all over. Dry brush with Fortress Grey over mid tone and high lights. Finally dry brush using Skull White.
Any shaded areas spoiled by the dry brush where covered with black.
All mixes are glazes. amount of coats used depends on how its looking.
The metallic areas where painted with Boltgun Metal glaze.
A glaze of Brown Ink ( OOP with GW but still here ) was used to brown the various golden parts.
Parts of the armour and the cloak where painted with a few layers of Chaos Black glaze, enough to diminish the Boltgun underneath but not too much to destroy what's left of the highlights underneath.
Skin was painted with Shadow Grey and Chaos Black was added glazing up to the tips of the horns.
The blue was painted using Ice Blue and then given a glaze of Blue Ink
Scorched Brown for the belt and the bottom of his cloak.
Warlock Purple was used on the staff with Skull White being added at various stages of the pattern.
Codex Grey on the stone base.
Just repainted this guy to get more contrast out of him and add some grey tones. He's on a 60mm base for anyone wondering about his size.
Got my hands on the Moria Drum at last, I really love the drummer with the raised hands, great little sculpt. There's plenty more dwarves to paint, khazad guard, warriors, rangers and the king of moria.
I took no notes while painting these, I wasn't bothered with painting for a while and when I did get stuck in I dident want to break the pace as it where by writing shit down every few minutes (as little time as it would take I just couldn't).
I was inspired after seeing some riders of the dead conversions by ukfreddybear on the one-ring forums, in particular the straps he had made and I thought the looked very effective and easy enough so I said I'd give em a shot on a warg.
The painting is messy enough but i find it much more fun to paint this way than trying for unachievable perfection. I'm not as bothered by getting every miniature to be better than the last, its a relief really.
Got another conversion in the making, Shaman on a warg. I've just used a normal orc rider with some modifications like a cloak and horns made from an orc bow, anyway I'll post some pics soon.
