Starting to (slowly) get back into the swing of painting, and last night I polished off a brand new model for the Destruction Alliance – a Colossal Squig!
Despite being a (fairly large) Forge World model, the Squig ended up being simplicity itself to paint.
Starting with a base coat of Jokaero Orange (on a Corax White undercoat), the whole model gets washed with Fugan Orange, and then drybrushed with successive layers of Troll Slayer Orange, Fire Dragon Bright and then Kindleflame (that last is what really sets the model off, don’t skip it!).
And that is 95% of the model completed!
After that, it was just a case of mouth, teeth, claws and eyes. Towards the end, I felt the model was lacking a certain something, so did a few light-coloured warts dotted about the place, and highlighted the ears and spikes with Yriel Yellow – that did just the trick!
Currently got more Forge World models on the painting table at the moment, in the form of Plague Toads of Nurgle, along with the Orc Blood Bowl team, but I am hoping to make a decent start on the new Tzeentch models this weekend!
