Tonight I finished painting Hrothgorn's Mantrappers! I love how expressive they all are, and their names are fantastic as well: from left to right (not including the trap at the very far left), we have Bushwakka, Quiv, Hrothgorn, Luggit & Thwak, and Thrafnir.

Finished Ironsoul's Condemnors! I'm stoked with the robes and the bases in particuar, really happy with how they came out. Just need to varnish them tomorrow.

And that's the last two pieces of the Primal Lair terrain done!

Games Workshop's Contrast paints and my new big drybrushes certainly reduce the time it takes to do these terrain pieces for Warhammer Underworlds! (Miniature is there for scale).

I think I've got the hang of this drybrushing business now. 👌🏻

I was having a bit of a struggle with my new drybrushes, you can't tell too much from my previous photos of Lady Harrow's Mournflight, but I couldn't get the drybrushing to come out properly all the time, it kept globbing and looking like crap. I decided to carefully watch Artis Opus' tutorial video and do some experimenting and, counterintuitively, it turns out I was actually taking TOO MUCH paint off the brush! Because the new brushes are so big and thick and soft compared to what I'm used to using (an EXTREMELY ratty old Games Workshop drybrush), you actually need to leave more paint on the brush and just really gently flick the end of the brush across the surface. Check out this gorgeous gradient I did tonight, I think I've got the hang of it now!

Thoroughly enjoying my new fancy drybrushes!

YES! My first set of properly-fancy brushes. Very excited to take them for a spin.

Oh man, I just did my first ever glaze for miniature painting (I thinned out Flesh Tearers Red with Contrast Medium in a 1:8 ratio), and hot damn am I a convert. Look at how rich that red looks now!
