Escutcheon's Painting Thread

Recommended Posts

Finished my Death Knights! They are ready to trample the foes of Waiqar.

It took a few iterations to settle on the color scheme, since I wanted them to both stand out from the basic warriors but also share a similar theme, hence the dark granite armor (to match the Reanimate shields), green cloth, and overall muted look. 

Ankaur Maro is next (he's 80% done, it's just... a lot of bone to highlight).

Thank you. 

The base is regular sand you'll find on a beach or construction site. I use PVA glue to stick to the bases and trays before basecoating. I also sandpaper the trays beforehand to help the sand adhere.

If you can find tiny roots or twigs, that adds different textures too.

The colors are (from the Army Painter): Oak Brown; Strong Tone (quite a lot because I want it to look muddy); drybrush Oak Brown; very light drybrush Desert Yellow.

Then Army Painter swamp tufts to finish.

Cheers! Eyes are a dot of white (after the wash/dark tone fills in the eye sockets) followed by watered down Jungle Green or Scorpion Green just around the edges of the sockets. 


Use the tiniest brush you have.

Only just seen these- your death knight horses are really good, great choices- face to face I think they'd be really intimidating with a huge fear factor, the sanguine blood-brown's quite unsettling, all the more so if you know a bit of Terrinoth lore as there's a creepy suggestion as to their various possible unnatural origins- you might not even look at the riders- if the horses scare you that much....


Great job!


I'm now running. Fast. Those things don't look like they'd nuzzle you for a sugar lump. Not that you should give horses sugar IRL anyway but you get my point.
