Time to finish off painting Stinkmullet with Gentleben! Take a look at all pictures in my latest hobby tutorial.
I start off with the big pod/head/scalp thing.
I started with a basecoat of Cadian Fleshtone and shaded it with the Xereus Purple. These are the same colors from Stinkmullet’s mushroom cap.
Here I’ve added some Screaming Skull lightening everything up a bit more.
Then I use a thin wash of Xereus Purple to define all the holes and surrounding ridges.
These are then highlighted with the Cadian Fleshtone, or Screaming Skull for those in lighter areas.
Then the rest of the squig’s skin get’s a basecoat of Evil Sunz mixed with a little Dryad Bark.
Then I add some highlights with Cadian Fleshtone blending it into the surrounding red. I painted his teeth black and I’ve highlighted them with just a little blue.
I added some more definition to his teeth and claws, then put a little red spot on his eye before I glued him to the base.
It was not easy to photograph this guy. I had to focus a light on a large bent sheet of cardstock to try to do away with the shadow cast by his large mushroom cap. He’s a little under-lit here and it looks a bit off.
You can see most of his scorpipede friend is concealed by his cloak. A lot of the mushrooms are also hidden by his hat.
And look at these old
Night Goblins Moonclan Grots I still had around. I tried pretty hard to sell that army and this makes me a little glad I still have it. Now I’m trying to figure out how difficult it would be to turn this into a full-blown Moonclan army. As if I didn’t have enough projects already…
~Hope you enjoyed this very long series!
