Ghorghor Bey


I have received the miniature from Green Stuff (Thanks Cédric!) for the Miniature Exchange #4 and I was initially scared by the size (about 12x14cm or 4.7x5.5 inches)
Then I have accepted the challenge and carefully painted it adding an adequate display base.
Some time ago I have added a WIP to my gallery with a description of the colors used to paint the face, here's a copy.

If you are interested about the colors I have used for the face here's a little guide:
Black primer, basecoat using Vallejo Model Color Mahogany Brown (846) then I have started the highlights mixing in a bit of Vallejo Game Color Dwarf Skin (41).
After three passes (60/40, 40/60 and 10/90%) I have washed all the area using GW Flesh wash diluited with water (1/5) to smooth the transactions.
Then I have started adding the lights using Vallejo Game Color Sunny Skintone (845) mixed with GW Flesh wash.
I think I have painted 4 or 5 passes increasing the Sunny Skintone and smoothing with a mix of 1 part of Sunny Skintone, 1 part of Flesh wash and 10 parts of waters if the transaction was too hard.

The eyes have a white basecoat with Vallejo Red (926) iris and black pupil with a point of white for the light.

Teeths: basecoat with Andrea Colors Japanese Khaki (you can use Vallejo Game Color Japanese Uniform WWII (923) or GW Bubonic Brown) and highlight adding Vallejo Model Color Buff (976) (3 passes).
Final highlight using White.

Tongue: Vallejo Model Color Red (926), highlight using Vallejo Model Color Amarantha Red (829) and final highlight adding a bit of White.
Then I have glazed everythig using Tamiya Clead Red.

For the rings, first pass using Vallejo Game color Brass (801) mixed with a bit of black, then pure Brass and then Vallejo Gold (996)

Fantastic work, dear Paolo! I love the model, and what you did with it is just outstanding. It is so nice to see, how you've improved more and more over the years. Really makes me wanna get out my Ghorghor Bey (which I of course have too ;-) ) and paint it up. Well, keep up the great work, my friend!
