Always Sing Second... lava and football

On this last Saturday of college football, I was trying to recover from a very late night of camera testing.  The guests arrived very early, so I had an early start as well.

Before that game started, I played my first game of Warhammer Fantasy since the WFB tournament in April.  Man was that different from my beloved LOTR.

Watching the Army/Navy game was a bit all encompassing, so as that was on, I did a little painting on those LOTR bases for my Mordor army!  Time for some hot stuff!

I set it up by painting my brightest lights, so that I could do my transparent Fluorescent orange later.

I tried to establish my initial darks with a reddish brown mix...

The darks of the rocks further from the lava got a cooler shade of brown.

A blue/black mix for the marble surface on top...

Just about ready to start adding the fluorescent elements to heat things up.  You can see how that orange glows just sitting there on the palette.

Sammy was watching me very closely the whole time...

As I was watching the Middies get that first score!  What a game.  Go Navy...

More to come later!!
