Legends - Progress of W1D1

I've decided to paint them in squads, so that they maintained colour cohesiveness within squads. Plus, it allows me to use variant hues of green for this army which also means various painting techniques that I've been wanting to experiment on. Today I only managed to paint the main colours. I wanted a ghostly feel with some Nurgle aura mixed into them, and I'm quite happy with the result. Here's the step-by-step for the work I've done today.

First of all, one layer of Terracotta on black primer.

Second, one thin layer of sporadic Camo Green here and there, mostly covering the areas I missed on the first step.

Third, multiple blending layering technique with gradual addition of Scorpion Green, Hawk Turqoise, Ice Blue, Skull White in the build-up. They're airbrushed using the preshading method.

Here's a close-up on one of the end results. Sorry for the blurry picture, turns out that my camera was low on battery. One question though, should I give it a Thraka Green/Gryphonne Sephia wash or should I just leave it as it is now?

Tomorrow, detailing work. Stay tune for more updates.


  1. Wow- that's a pretty wild sequence of colors to get the final result. I would've never thought of it! :)

    Very cool- keep it up.

  2. Agreed. And all done using an airbrush. Your confidence and skill have definately grown with practice. Glad your enjoying using it.

    Nice effect you've achieved. Just remember that you're on a time limit so don't get too complicated ;)

    Keep it up bro!

  3. Good work bro. Nice airbrush technique.
