Ghost King: Figure 253 of 266

Chris Palmer

     This week I painted the Ghost King from the Grave Danger set.  I didn’t know he was a ghost when I painted him; as he looks more like a Lich, or just a heavily armored skeleton.  I painted him up with an eye to needing a Lich Lord for the “Thaw of the Lich Lord” Frostgrave supplement.
     I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it.  I then glued the figure to a white-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.

      I began by painting the entire figure Black.  I then did a heavy drybrush coat of Americana “Raw Umber” on his armor and sword, followed with a lighter drybrush of Nicole’s “Brown”.

      Next, I gave the armor and sword a thinned sloppy dabbling of Accent “Golden Oxide”. After that, I drybrushed the armor and sword with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”.

    I then painted the lining of his cape with Ceramcoat “Black Cherry”.  Next, I painted his skull and hands with Americana “Khaki Tan”, and then painted the hilt of his sword with Ceramcoat “Bronze”.

     Then, after everything had a while to dry, I gave the armor, sword, cape lining, skull, and hands, all a wash with Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash using a wet brush.  When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the skull and hands with Americana “Bleached Sand”, followed by a lighter drybrushing and highlighting with Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”.

    Next, I painted in little glowing eyes with Nicole’s “Neon Green”.   I then highlighted his cape lining using Americana “Cranberry Wine”, and then Americana “Burgundy Wine”. While I was using those colors, I also used them to paint the small gems in his sword hilt, and then added tiny White highlights.  After that I highlighted the rest of his black clothing by drybrushing with Americana “Zinc”.  I also used the “Zinc” to paint his base.  When that was dry, I drybrushed the base with Americana “Neutral Grey”, and then Folk Art “Platinum Grey”.

     I think he turned out pretty well, and the figure was nice and simple to get paint.
