Painting: 28mm Picts (Gripping Beast)



Ah mid-December, don’t you just love this time of year? Its almost here, its almost the big day! No, I am not talking about Xmas, but Star Wars: The Old Republic! The MMO launches on the 20th (or for those of us who pre-ordered, up to 5 days sooner)!



That being the case I have been working real hard to get these beauties – 28mm Gripping Beast Picts - finished otherwise they would probably be still here, unpainted, in March, the expected date for my first break from Star Wars.




This is my first attempt in a long while at painting Tartan (thanks again to the good folks at TMP for their advice). I found it easier to paint the initial layer and lines, then wash over the top of the dress with a stain, and then pick out the base layer again rather than paint lines on top of lines.




Apologies for this entry being brief but I really must press on, time is short and no manipulation of the force will make my painting any faster!




Coming Soon: Painting a Goblin in 4 simple steps, Creating 'Concrete' effects and Norman Crossbowmen!
