With four total sets, that gave me 4 of each individual pose; so I decided to paint them in groups of 4 like figures. Since I wanted half for individual basing, and half for stand basing, I glued 2 to 1″ primed washers using Aleene’s Tacky glue, and left 2 on just their integral bases. I then glued my groups of 4 onto tongue depressors using regular white glue.
But before I did that, I decided I wanted one of my individually-mounted Boulderkin to be a distinct command figure. So I choose a suitable pose, and chopped him in the middle and then chopped of one arm..
Using green stuff, I extended his middle so he would be slightly taller, and repositioned his right arm, and then re-sculpted the hand into a classic officer pointing pose.
Since I had so many of these to point, I decided I wanted to use Citadel Contrast Paints to speed the process. So, to begin, I gave all the figures a base coat of Ceramcoat “White”.
When the base coat was dry, I painted each figure entirely with Citadel Contrast “Basilicanum Grey”.
When the “Basilicanum Grey” was dry, I then went back and added a second layer to the insides of the mouths and their eyebrows to darken them. On some of their eyebrows I did the second coat with “Citadel Contrast “Space Wolves Grey” to mix things up. At this point, I drybrushed the figures with some Americana “Dove Grey”, paying particular attention to their “teeth” to help them stand out. I then dabbed some of the “Space Wolves Grey”, some Citadel Contrast Militarium Green”, and some Citadel Contrast Aggaros Dune” here and there on different rocks of their bodies to add some visual interest. After that, I painted their eyes with Crafters’ Acrylic “Daffodil Yellow”, and then painted Ceramcoat “Black” pupils.
