Step-by-Step Cauldron of Blood : Part 7 - A bit Hairy

Well it's time to get back to some work on the guide, sorry it's taken so long.

The next step I do is work on the hair. I generally paint my Dark Elves hair white. People have come up with so many reasons as to why I do this, but to be honest, I just like the way it looks.
The first thing I do is give the hair a coat of Space Wolves Gray. Make sure this layer has a good covering, nice and smooth and doesn't have any black patches showing through.

This may take a few thin coats to get a good finish.

Next lightly brush over the raised areas with a 50/50 mix of Space Wolves Gray and Skull White.

Once dry add a final highlight to the raised areas with Skull White.

Tomorrow I'll be working on the cloth areas

Welcome 2012

So 2012 is here and I know it's been a damn long time since I updated my Blog. Christmas and New Year is a real hectic time for me, and to be honest, I have no energy to do anything when I get home from work, so painting has been on a bit of a back-burner.

But I will hopefully be getting back to work this week. And here's some news on whats coming...

I have a commission coming up painting some Dark Eldar for a friend, I've been thinking about painting some up for a while, and this will give me a chance to paint some. I have full licence on how to paint them and have a rather cool scheme in mind. So keep an eye out for those.
I've also been given a date for the next big Fantasy game. Now I don't know how much of my army will be taking part in the game this time as we are going to tie it into a 'Battle Brothers' scheme the store has been running. So it will involve some armies from the younger members of our gaming community. If we do run short on minis though My Dark Elves and Louis's Empire will be making a timely entry to the field. Now you may be asking 'Why the Cygor picture?' Well over Christmas I've picked up a couple of these and a few Chaos hound. I'm hoping to get these painted up in time for the game. (Which for anyone wanting to turn up will be Friday April 6th at GW Carlisle) Now I should have plenty of time for this.

I'll also be continuing my step-by-step guide and finishing off my Cauldron of Blood for those of you that have been following that.
I'm also wanting to add one or two of these to my army. I think they would fit in almost perfectly as a mobile Nexus in a Storm of Magic game. Of course it will need some minor conversion here and there but I think it will look cool. (So if anyone is looking for a Birthday gift for me - Hint dropped)

So now I'm going to make a move and find some minis for a friend to borrow and some Marines for GW Carlisle's cabinet. Be back again soon.
