Dwarf Slayer Test Model

Believe it or not, I finished prepping my Dwarfs. I still have a bit of priming to do, but there are 30 Slayers ready to paint. Well, 29, actually because this guy is all done!

He likes Skittles.
I think he turned out pretty well. I was hoping his hair might come out a little redder, but you can't beat it for its simplicity. I used Macharius Solar Orange for the base, a wash of Baal Red, and then a light brushing of Blazing Orange on top. It's not spectacular, but the rest of them will paint up pretty quickly.

I haven't done any flesh tones outside of my two Dark Elf Corsairs, so his skin was interesting to do. I started of with the Tallarn Flesh and then I used Reaper's Fair Shadow over it, followed by Reaper's Fair, and an Ogyrian wash on top. I don't think it turned out too bad, and it didn't take forever and a half. I think I am going to experiment with different tones to give the army some variety.

He's not based yet because I'm trying to do something a little different than I have before, and I haven't had a chance to get them started. The blue stuff on his foot in the photos is just some putty I used to help stand him up. I'm going to use some slate and use some "gems" to decorate the bases eventually. It's not a solid concept yet, just a work-in-progress idea.

I also have a test model with chainmail that I am going to try out soon. I want to do gold chainmail, but Hubby says it's going to be a pain in butt to make it look right. I think it will look awesome, so we shall see. I don't have that many models with chainmail on them, so even if it takes a while I think it will be worth it. I really like the green/gold combination.
