I’m building my chaos dwarfs in aspiration to run in the WEST COAST HAMMERTIME Grand TOURNAMENT!
this is part of my COUNT DOWN TO HAMMERTIME!
here’s a quick shot of some of my Infernal Guard during their airbrush time!
Primed white, the guard, the BSB and the Demonsmith are ready for airbrushing.
You’ll note, I’m saving the Hand weapon shield for assembly later. I can only imagine that they’re difficult to reach much of the details (like Warriors of chaos) but I need to rank them up prior to gluing the odd weapons. 20mm bases mean they have to be snug.
I placed them on cork so that I didn’t have to muck them up with my own hands. That and it’s fancy as shit. …and hides the evidence of my wine consumption.
Next up was a 2 part base coat.
1: I mixed Vallejo RED and Vallejo Black in a 4:1 ratio. These droppers made it EASY to do. It gives a dark coating , that has a bit of red to it and helps add a shadowed feel.
Next step was the red.
I used pure Vallejo Red and lightly went over the dwarfs. Some areas I went for more coats ( helms, backs and forearms) others i went lighter. In the closer shot they look MUCH brighter than they are, almost a fire engine red. They’re more muted than that, so the zoomed out pic is more accurate.
From here, I’ll go in, do highlights, the beards, metal (bronzes. brass) then more effects!
Lots of experimenting to go. Hope you enjoy.
any advice is welcomed.
