As work on my Legion forces progresses I’ve also been putting some work in on the Mercenaries I’m painting to be given away at Privateer Press Weekend this year. I still have a lot of detailing and a little bit of re-working to do but things are looking good as far as meeting my deadline.
First up is my Orin Midwinter, who I think is coming together well. I shaded his robe by adding black to P3 Skorne Red and left him on the dark side to fit his fluff. The trim, sash, and shoulder pads still need some work but I went with black to keep a sinister feel on the model. Orin’s staff is P3 Brass Balls shaded with brown and black inks and highlighted by mixing in just a tad of GW Mithril Silver.
After I finish the the rest of the model I think I’m going to do some source lighting on the end of this staff and his left eye. I have some P3 Arcane Blue that I’ll probably use – it’s an interesting greenish blue that looks like it’s good for this sort of effect. I’ve tested it on some other models and I think it would look good applied to Orin.
