Here is something that has been in the works for a while... a Nurgle sorcerer. It is an interesting mini that I had never heard of until it arrived.
These next few images show the usual shaded basecoat process. Here's the banner being prepped for its darker glazes...
Some glazes applied. Remember, the idea is to set up my middle tones. I want to do a broad range of color variations in that zone, especially on a Chaos mini such as this. Those middle tones are really key to establishing reflected light and such.
Same for the sorcerer. Working the lights as much as possible, so that the glazes and shading will set up my darkest darks...
Don't be afraid to go super light at this stage, since lots of darkness is coming!
And here it is, some darker shading. When it comes down to it, many transparent glazes and washes take a lot less time than a similar amount of opaque paint layers!
Part of those middle tones is your weathering, such as rust, which is what I like to add right after the shading/glazing stage.
More work on the banner and sorcerer. Stay tuned for the final images tonight!!!!
