Hello everyone! now for some more Death units… well single mini this time! Here’s my necromancer! I had this model lying around for ages and He’s part of my 1000 point death army.
I kept the colour palette to a minimum focusing on black, brown tones and of course turquoise. I was a bit hesitant at first to use turquoise but I think it works really well with the other colours.
The original model came with a square base so I trimmed the base and stuck it on a 25mm base as I think it’s more proportional then being on a 32mm base. The base is painted in the same style as my other death units.
Here is one hero for my death army down, still need to do a few more but I may need t move forward with 10 more Tomb Guard before doing anything else! Hopefully there’ll be a post of them soon!
Thanks Gareth! I hope one day I'll get there haha
Perfect, big fan of him since you showed me the work in progress. Colour palette works super well, always looking forward to more!
As always mate, thanks for the support =)
So good….Can ToP implement a 'thumbs up' system for each post…I would be clicking it a lot!!
Love the "old man" pale skin, could you do a colour list for this please?
And the turquoise too…?
You Richard. The pale skin was base coated with Kislev Flesh then shaded with Riekland Fleshshade then a focus shade of Druchi Violet in the recesses. Then It's just a matter of layering the skin with Kislev Flesh mixed with White Scar with he ratio of White Scar to Kislev Flesh increasing each time. The final highlight was with pure White Scar.
The Turquoise was base coated with a 2:1 mix of Hawk Turquoise and Abbadon Black then layered it with Hawk Turquoise, highlighted with Temple Guard Blue with a final highlight of Baharroth Blue.
I also glazed the robes with thin layers of Skrag Brown for a more dirtier look. A tip I learnt is while glazing with mixtures of paint thinned with water is to apply a thin layer of water then apply your glaze. The wet surface prior helps to spread the glaze evenly when you concentrate the glaze in one area.
Hope this helps
