I began by giving all of them complete coats of Ceramcoat “White”. When that was dry, I painted their bodies with Citadel Contrast “Militarum Green”.
Next, I repainted the center figure’s bone club, and the bone handle of the righthand ones’ axe, with the “White”. I then painted the lefthand one’s spear handle with Americana “Mississippi Mud”, then painted the spear point, axe head, and all their ankle bracelets with Accent “Golden Oxide”. After that, I painted the bindings on the spear, club and axe, with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”. I then moved to their mouths, painting the inside of the lefthand one’s mouth with Folk Art “Milkshake”, and then painting all their teeth with Folk Art “Barn Wood”. I then went back and gave the center figure’s bone club, and the bone handle of the righthand ones’ axe a coat of Citadel Contrast “Skeleton Horde”.
I then applied a coat of “Nuln Oil” wash to the teeth and mouth of the figures. While that dried, I did highlights on the spear shaft using some of the “Barn Wood” mixed with the base “Mississippi Mud”. By now the “Skeleton Horde” Contrast paint had dried, so I did some light drybrush highlights on the bone club, and axe handle with Americana “Bleached Sand”. The “Nuln Oil” was dry too, so I highlighted the teeth with the “Bleached Sand” as well. After that, I highlighted all the bindings on the weapons with Folk Art ‘Butter Pecan”.
I’m really happy with how this trio turned out. I think the Contrast paint really was effective on the scaly skin, and blended well with more conventional paints.
