Random mercenary for my Khador army. Mostly zenithal shading + inks/washes.

Finally finished Brun and Lug! I’m very happy with how they turned out. The green backdrop always seems to ruin my pictures, so I might try taking pictures against the purple backdrop.
I’m thinking about making one or both a ReaperCon entry, so I might make some more updates (any suggestions would be welcome!).
Fun and quick to paint. I decided that it was basically a warbeast, so it got the Dark Elf triad for skin colors, and Snow Shadow -> Winter Blue on the armor plates. I used wet blending for the armor plates to get a decent blend fast. I’m still not comfortable with it, but it’s fast and you have to look closely to see the transitions. Lots of monster-mouth going on here, which is VMC Warlord Purple, highlighted with Spectral White then finished with Citadel ‘ardcoat, which is the glossiest sealer I know of.
Vayl2 is my “other” Legion caster, so it will probably see playtime with her. (I’m not sure if it does anything for Fyanna2 – I feel like she wants to engage on the enemy’s side of the board)
My second Neraph kit (the first one from the battle box). Having learned my lesson, I kept the wings on, but magnetized the head and tail. The previous one I painted didn’t have as much contrast as I would have liked, so I took most of the colors a step lighter – in particular, the wings came up to MSP Spectral White from MSP Drow Nipple Pink (which was still used). The body is my standard Legion warbeast scheme: MSP Drow Skin triad for the body, MSP Winter Blue -> MSP Snow Shadow for the armor plates. VGC Warlord Purple for the gums, and MSP Bathalian Chitin for bony bits.
