I already painted the Goblin Bodyguard from this trio recently, and as I mentioned in that article, I had began by painting all their exposed skin areas with Citadel Contrast “Snakebite Leather”. Then, as I was studying them, I had realized they really weren’t similar enough to paint as a group, and so I popped them off the tongue depressor. I now had reattached the Champion to a pill bottle with some blue tac. After that, I painted his kilt? with Pathfinder MSP “Urgathoa Red”, his boots with Citadel Contrast “Wyldwood”,and his neck piece with Americana “Antique Gold”.
I then painted his belt with Folk Art “Dark Brown”, and the bone hanging from it with Americana “Antique White”. After that, I painted his sword and and belt buckle with Americana “Zinc”, and the ties on his blanket roll with Americana “Sable Brown”. I went back then and repainted his sword and belt buckle with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”.
I let the figure dry for a while, and then gave all the clothing, accessories, and weapons a coat of Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash. When the wash was dry, I painted his eyes. After that, since I felt his skin had come out rather splotchy from using the Contrast Paint on it, I tried blending it a bit with some Accent Golden Oxide. I then used some Apple Barrel “Maple Sugar Tan” mixed with the “Golden Oxide”. to highlight his skin. After that, I painted his hair with Cermacoat “Black”, and then highlighted it with, first, Ceramcoat “Charcoal”, and then a little Americana “Zinc”.
Next, I highlighted his kilt with Reaper MSP HD “Rusty Red”, and then highlighted his neck piece with Americana “Primary Yellow”. I followed by highlighting the wrap around his sword blade with Accent “Mustard Seed”, and I highlighted his pouch with Folk Art “Dark Brown”. After that, I highlighted his wrist guards with Americana “Light Cinnamon”.
I then highlighted his belt with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, and the bone hanging from it with Americana “Bleached Sand”. Next, I highlighted his blanket roll with Americana “Jade Green”, and the ropes tying it with Americana “Khaki Tan”. I wrapped things up by highlighting his sword and belt buckle with Ceramcoat “Metallic Silver”. Lastly, I painted his base with the “Mississippi Mud”.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor’s “Dullcote”.
