Fomorian Witch and an old favourite
So, I decided to throw down some paint on this Fomorian Witch. She's called Nemain, and is produced by Krakon Games. The skin tone is mostly Foundry Moss Triad, but also using Athonian Camoshade for extra depth and with light touches of Vallejo Duck Egg Green as an even lighter highlight.
I was a little sloppy with initial colours, so I need to go in and neaten up a whole bunch, dropping some of the darker colours back in to areas of shade. The brown robe doesn't have enough contrast with the skin if it's not under bright light, so I need to think about how to give that some definition. I'm pleased with the red, though. I've been being told off about going too dark by Sim, and this effort with Mephiston Red, Wild Rider Red and Carroburg Crimson is much better than my usual murky stuff.
Meanwhile, this classic "Made to Order" Daemonhunter has been given an appropriate Hero Base. I wanted to make sure this old classic figure was on a 40mm base for the modern terminator base size, but was having trouble working out how to not make it look swamped. By making, effectively, a little mini diorama, I think I've solved the problem well. (I've left the arms off for painting.)
I'm pretty happy with the amount I've got done this weekend. Various figures also got undercoated in the first good weather we've had in ages, but you've already seen them assembled, so I won't repeat that here.
Finally, I'm having a little bit of a clear out of some bits and bobs I'm just not going to get around to painting or using. Feel free to have a look at my stuff on eBay - there's definitely still some bargains there at the moment!
