Ok, so the project in short is to take these guys:
Well, the last if the Chaos Dwarf Bull Centaur bits arrived. Thus I didn’t do any painting. All the purchased pieces were there, which is always good.
I spent some time cleaning up a horse body, and gluing the two halves together. I then cleaned a Black Orc torso and cut most of the hips and buttocks off. I then shaped the bottom part to match where the horse head would attach.
A little greenstuff, and I have the beginnings of a centaur!
Pictures some time tomorrow, I am too tired to take pics right now.
I do think it looks good though!
Knowing how difficult it can be to do a bright color over black, I primed a Temple Flameguard Grunt and a Redeemer last night:
Today, I played two coats of white over the areas I want to be orange. You can barely see where the white is, but it’s a necessary step. It evens out the primer undercoat which is a bit spotty and doesn’t cover the best.
Next, I put down two layers of Blazing Orange. The first layer was just to get the color down – I went with the natural angle of the brush on the surface, depending on what worked. The second layer evens up the coat and removes all the brush strokes – it’s painted on perpendicular to the previous layer. Since I could see the streaks of the first layer, it was pretty easy to keep the brush moving perpendicular.
Tomorrow, lots of black!
