Welcome back sports fans to the second quarter of this great game called Tale of Tuesdays! I’ve hit my second monthly deadline by completing the next three models. After the jump, I’ll share some close-ups and a group shot of all six players of the Deep Sick Divers!
I recently shared a tutorial on this scheme and I’ve changed how I paint these already. I’m always looking for time saving, efficient techniques and Contrast has helped me with these three models.
The biggest change is the undercoat. These are undercoated with Grey Seer instead of black. This replaces step 1 on the tutorial and means you can remove step 2 completely. You do need to add a step in-between steps 6 and 7 and paint the cloth goods and boots with Abaddon Black. Painting the black on is faster than three coats of Celestra Grey so it’s a big time saver still.
The other change is I’m using Contrast Blood Angel’s Red for the guts and then I’m using Citadel ‘Ardcoat to gloss varnish the guts.
I’m at half time now with the Deep Sick Divers. Going into the second half I’m feeling really confident that I can score a touch down and complete the whole team before the whistle blows on this project.
