Time to paint some more bases for Mechanicum big guys! These are also from DragonForge Designs.
If you are familiar with all the other Mechanicum bases, I have tried to keep the same set of colors working on these two.
This means having a balance of reddish, green and even some yellow hues in the stone areas.
In typical Shaded Basecoat fashion, I went a little bit lighter to make 'space' for the later glazes.
To get some color contrast with the stone areas, the metal plating was immediately painted in a blue/gray.
You can see the "light to dark" transitions, especially on the right hand base. It also contrasts a bit with the light areas on the 'warm' colored stone. Light against dark. Creates interest!
Still working lighter, but now putting in some 'warmer' grays... even in the metal areas.
Working lighter still...
A few colors on the wires!
At this point, the Shaded Basecoat phase is nearly complete.
Which means I can toss down some food at the workstation and actually see a play or two of Today's games. Then it's right back to it, and the glazing/shading. Stay tuned!!
