Hey everyone, Spaceshrimp here with my second Underworlds war band post for Tale of Tuesdays. And a stray dog has joined!
Grawl is an interesting animal sculpt. Off the face of it, it just looks like a dog. But on closer inspection, especially when scrutinising the face, I realised he has quite feline features. The head is more panther-like with the rounded ears and short snout. One thing I just completely didn’t realise until coming to paint it was… Grawl has no eyes??? I am sure most of you knew this and it is verified in some of his very creepy card artwork and in the warbands lore but it completely came as a surprise to me! It is really sinister, and I love it and hate it in equal measures, which is a good hallmark of a Chaos model in my opinion.
As you may have realised, I didn’t manage to finish the warband this month. But I have made ok progress Grundann. One thing I have taken to doing since the introduction of contrast is blocking in my colours with contrast, and then going over them with layer paints. I don’t really exclusively have one method of painting. It depends on the model and the outcome I have in mind. But I find blocking in with contrast to be a really quick way to lay down an initial layer of pigment for layer paints to grip onto.
