Painting Warlord Pike & Shotte Epic Battles
Jings and crivens- another bonus post! (This isn't this week's normal Monday post, this week's normal post is scheduled for Wednesday, International Women's Day - could be a mahoosive clue to what it is is about there.) Having seen a number of 'how to paint...' tutorials on YouTube, and having painted just a few Wars of the Three Kingdoms/British Civil Wars/ English Civil War (delete as you see appropriate) I thought I'd have a crack.
Once again, I need to say thank you to Warlord for sending me a preview frame of the new range.
The examples that I have seen all utilise speed/contrast paints, and strange things such as zenithal priming. So here is a different style of painting to consider. Caveat: they look pretty rubbish until they are finished - some would say they still look rubbish even when finished.
I freely admit not to being a brilliant painter, at best I'm average. My painting style is firmly planted in the following routine:
- undercoat (if I remember)
- carefully colour everything in
- apply some specific washes (armour, flesh, blonde hair)
- go back and fix all the errors I have noticed, or missed completely
- heavy Nuln Oil wash
- occasionally add a highlight
