Typhon!

Rawr!

He’s a three headed dragonspawn, and he’s a crazy model.  I had loads of fun painting the model, and I’m looking forward to painting him for my own army some day.  (He’s currently unassembled in a box.)  This post is mostly mechanical (recipes), since most of my thoughts are reserved for Clash of the Titans.

For those of you living under a rock, this model is for Lost Hemisphere‘s Memory Machine effort to raise funding for Alzheimer’s Disease research.  The army is a 35pt Rhyas Rear Guard Tier4 Theme list, and will be auctioned off at Templecon 2012.  When I heard about the army, I offered to help G’daybloke, and he charged me with painting the warbeasts in the army, Typhon and a Nephilim Protector.

I started Typhon with a black undercoat.  From there…

Skin: (P3)Bloodstone -> (P3)Khador Red -> (P3)Khador Red Highlight -> (GW)Gryphonne Sepia Wash
Chitin: (P3)Beaten Purple -> (GW)Hormagaunt Purple (stripes) -> (GW)Leviathan Purple Wash -> (GW)Hormagaunt Purple (stripes) -> (P3)Frostbite (edge stripes)
Mouth: (P3)Frostbite -> (GW)Baal Red Wash -> (GW)Gryphonne Sepia Wash
Teeth: (P3)Menoth White Base -> (P3)Menoth White Highlight -> (GW)Skull White
Head Sensors: (P3)Exile Blue -> 50/50 (P3)Exile Blue, (GW)Ice Blue -> (GW)Ice Blue

I used a Windsor & Newton Series 7 #1 for the entire project.  Love that brush.

Anyway, enough words.  Pictures!
