Cryxy goodness!

Hey, it’s been almost a month since I’ve posted anything in this space.

For starters, things in the personal life  have taken a strange turn in that my stepdad has been missing since June 20. His single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza never arrived at its destination and the search was called off July 10. Needless to say, blogging and painting have taken a backseat.

But I’ve actually worked up something I thought was worth sharing, so here we go.

I got tired of this thing mocking me from the painting desk.

And I painted these Bile Thralls about two months ago but don’t think I ever posted pics. Well, I just did in the forums, but that doesn’t count. 😛

In painting these guys, I discovered some interesting things about the P3 paint line:

  • Trollblood base is VERY good for painting things other than Trolls
  • Turquoise ink isn’t just for Cygnar any more
  • Morrow White + water + Future Floor Wax = great way to get “ghostly” effect (use a brush with a very good tip, paint in very, very thin layers)
  • I need to use more Radiant Platinum
  • Meridius Blue is another very under-used color
  • Necrotite Green can be very distracting

Anyway, I have more Cryx to build in the morning, so I need to hit the rack.

I’ll try to be more regular about posting stuff. 😛 (Famous last words, I know…)

    I’m thoroughly impressed with the Nightmare, Jen. Great work.

    And of course, your family is still in our prayers…

    Boba,

    Sorry to hear. I hope they find your stepdad soon. My Dad’s a private pilot, I know I would be putting everything on the back burner if he went missing, too.

    That is some terrific work, especially the little girl with the Nightmare. I know how bloody small that piece is, tho I have yet to attempt it myself.

    I just ran across this while randomly browsing via google. I really dig the nightmare paint job. He looks nearly ghostly. Very nice.
