The Diamond is going to be a long slog of edge highlighting, but I also made some progress on his axe. I’m happy with how it looks so far, but it seems like it’s missing something.
That’s airbrush work, of course. RMS Light Blue (the same as the other blue bits), then RMS Clear Blue and finally Reaper New Pro Paint Ocean Blue.
Here they are, the completed Black Dragon squad and their leader Sophia Drake.
A shot from above with a better view of their bases. These are the base inserts that were included with Kickstarter orders. 3 styles of 40mm base inserts are on display here. VMC Oily Steel, RMS HD Armor Grey and RMS Rainy Grey were used over a black base.
Here we have a shot from below (with some photoshopping of the background).
And experimenting with a white background. They look a lot darker (closer to my intended coloring), but less accurate than the above images. Interestingly, the matte sealer I used (Liquitex Matte Varnish, applied with an airbrush) noticably brightened the grays.
Nearing completion are the 2nd and 3rd members of my Black Dragons unit. They are just awaiting a matte coat and then they will join the other members on my tabletop.
Colors used: VMC German Grey, VMC Basalt Grey, RMS Rainy Grey, RMS Light Blue, RMS Soft Blue, RMS Pure White
