I took a break from Gnolls this past week to paint the two Beastmen Warriors from the Bones 2 Beast Mode set.
I prepped these figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the figures to black-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue under each washer.
I forgot to take a starting photo, so here are the photos from the Reaper Online Store.
I then used Citadel “Snakebite Leather” to paint the loincloth on the left figure, as well as it’s wrist guards, and the medallion and face on it’s belt. Likewise, I used the “Snakebite Leather” to also paint the wrist band, medallions and belt face on the right figure. Next, I painted the loincloth of the righthand figure with Americana “Bittersweet Chocolate”, and then painted the axe handles with Folk Art “Dark Brown”, and the belts with Crafter’s Acrylic Cinnamon Brown". After that, I went back and painted the muzzle of the righthand one with the “Dove Grey”, and then painted the bases and hooves with Black.
Next, I painted the axe heads, horn points, the chainmail on the left one’s loincloth, and the chain bracelet on the right one’s right arm, all with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”. I followed that with going back and painting the belt faces and medallions, as well as the wrist band on the right one’s left arm, all with Ceramcoat “Bronze”. Then, after everything had a while to dry, I gave both figures a wash using Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash using a wet brush.
