May Day painting challenge – Update #6

ffg_MEC42_99.jpgThey next group of miniatures are the first that actually appear to be based on a specific piece of card art – these are the Wights, which look to be based on the picture on the left.

Once again I am limiting the colour palette to browns, greys and black to maintain the generally dark appearance of the enemy models.

Though the creature has exposed skeleton, I am taking further inspiration from the drawing and painted this a pale grey colour rather than bone, so it has a more ethereal rather than physical tone.

Finally, as these models are undead, I want the shade contrast to be both cold and stark, so the models were washed with HE Nuln Oil.

Quite pleased with how these have come out.

Next up is the big guy, as it is time to paint the Troll, which is something I have been looking forward to.
