LOTR - Painting Wargs

I hope this will give you some understanding of how I painted the wargs. The only difference between this warg and those in the previous post was not using Desert Yellow as an intermediate colour across the wargs mid section between painting the Bubonic Brown and Scorched Brown.....

1 Chaos Black undercoat.
2 Brush Codex Grey. (letting each step dry before going to the next)
3 Brush mix of Codex and White (fortress greyish mix).
4 Brush Skull White.

When brushing, its like dry brushing but I keep the brush just moist enough to avoid a chalky look.

5 Glaze upper half Codex Grey. (shoulders etc)
6 Glaze upper half Bubonic Brown.
(At this stage Desert Yellow would have been painted across the mid section of the warg and on his back or could have been painted before the Bubonic brown).
7 Glaze Lower half Scorched Brown.
8 Glaze face Codex Grey.

Finally the gums and tongue where glazed Scorched Brown and the teeth with Bleached Bone. A light dry brush of b.bone was also used across the top of his back. Badab Black was washed over his legs, under belly and chest.
Sometimes I paint extra dark or light spots where its needed such as the face or areas of fur to help define the features, dident here though.

There is just under an hour between taking the first picture of the warg and the last which includes drinking tea 'and smoking!', I dont know if its a quicker or slower process but it certainly feels a lot more easier and organic.

LOTR - Angmar Spectre & Moria Bat Swarm

This spectre conversion was made using a knight of Numenor and a 40k skull that came free with a terminator in White Dwarf. Green stuff sealed up a bullet hole in his forehead and I added some hair to help the skull fuse with the body more seamlessly. I also tried some NMM on his sword and shin guards. I could have gone further with bleached bone highlights on the figure and more white on the metal but you know yourself, sometimes if you push it too far it ruins everything.

Reaper Bat Swarm, dry brushed codex grey and white. Bats where glazed with a mix of Scorched Brown and Chaos Black which was more on the black side than brown. A light glaze of scorched brown was done on the bats body. I tired some flesh colour on the face and ears but it didn't work out. The stones where painted with Codex Grey.

Chaos Sorcerer Lord Tzeentch

WIP pictures of this miniature are here.
His horns were finished off with Shadow Grey painting towards the tips, a small amount of chaos black was added closer to the tips. Scorched brown was used to paint his irises and the metal was done like mentioned in the previous post.
