Month 2 of #taleoftuesdays Underworlds edition has concluded, and, to the disbelief of everyone, I finished my entry in time. Let’s raise the curtain for Ylthari’s Guardians, four angry tree spirits to fight
against global heating for Shardglass. Let the march of the Ents Sylvaneth begin!
Most of these models were painted with washes and Contrast paints. The bark is several layers of Wyldwood mixed with Contrast Medium over a Corax White basecoat, then highlighted with P3 Beast Hide and Banshee Brown from The Army Painter. The pink is Volupus Pink mixed with Contrast Medium and highlighted with P3 Carnal Pink. For the ghostly skin check out my Nighthaunts tutorial.
I’m very satisfied with how the paint scheme turned out. Shout out to Angaroth40k who inspired me to incorporate the pink, cherry blossom details. Painting most of the basic work with Contrast Paint made painting these models very efficient, even though it also created some rough areas which I couldn’t all fix. You trade a bit of quality for efficiency when using the Contrast way of painting in my experience. Nevertheless, I’m very happy having these models finished.
