For the second month of the Narrative League, I’ve been working on painting up my Grymkin. I’ve been keeping up the pictures as I paint everything, but saving everything up for a post on the week between the second month and the final month. Be prepared for lots of pictures, just after the jump.
Kicking off this month, I painted up my Gorehound – a warbeast that I used in almost every list. I struggled with this beast because I really wanted it to have more of a blue/black color as opposed to the tan that I have used mostly so far, but I also wanted the tan washed white for the bones, teeth, and tail. I’m not sure I got what I wanted, but it was close enough for now:
Next, I wanted to paint my journeyman warlock, Adrik, the Forsaken. This is worth an extra point during the league, and, as it’s my own character, I wanted to take a bit of extra time to make him look as good as possible. He also comes with two Gravelings – one small (that I painted when he was just a solo), and one medium. Overall, I liked how they all turned out:
Next, it was time to do another warbeast – this time, it’s my favorite beast, the Rattler. Like Skin and Moans, I think he turned out a bit too monotone, and the chains turned out a lot more rusty than I really wanted. I’ll definitely be fixing that in a touchup stage:
Finally, I wanted to paint a warlock, and The King of Nothing was the smallest and probably easiest to paint. I already had some experience with the tree bits, and the rest was just getting the mushrooms and clothing to look right. Overall, I was very happy with how he turned out – getting the white speckles on the mushrooms turned out swell, and the whole effect worked out:
More than last month, I think I have a few more touchups to do on these before I’m happy with them, so we’ll see what time I can pull together. On the other hand, I will be painting the full warlock version of Adrik, so there’s that too…
