    Default Wolf Guard Captain WIP

    Gday all. Starting a WIP thread for my WG Termie Captain - hoping with this one to take my painting a step further via greater contrasts over blended shadows/highlights; blending Wolf fur (which I’ve previously always drybrushed); and further improving my ability to paint faces.

    Kicking it off with half a Termie (I paint in sub assemblies), i’ll be building up many very thin layers until I achieve a solid basecoat.

    Let's do this! Do you use a wet palette or dry? I just rediscovered my wet palette and wondered why i ever stopped using it. its very fast for sketching in basic tones.

    Wet palette Zab; a homemade version using a plastic tupperware lid, paper towel, and baking paper. Love not having to worry about paint consistency changing (drying out) while im working.

    Reckon that’ll do for now on the Greaves. I’ve progressed the belt buckle through basecoat/topcoat/shade as it will be difficult to reach once the Torso is attached. Currently blessing my Captain with a left arm before i proceed to basecoat the various torso elements (time to ponder the best colours to paint the disparate elements on the model; cape, fur, face, hair etc.)

    Having achieved a solid colour with the red, I decided to shade the cape (havent painted a cape, was looking forward to it). I mixed the base red with green until I had 4 shades of purple - each with more green and the last with a little black. The result of my afternoon trialling this shadow colour is on the edge of the cape here; best photo I could manage::

    Needs some smoothing out with glazes and general tidying, but what do you reckon of the shadow colour and depth?
