Fell Beast Highlights

**Thanks for the poll answering, still plenty of time to add your votes.**

I spent some time doing some highlighting, nice and quick and messy stuff.

Here's some grey...


And the base...


Starting the lava process, as you know from previous projects it takes many layers to finally come out looking okay.


This is after three types of grey, Fortress Grey the final highlight. I decided that I didn't like it. Too much the same as my board. I had similar difficulty with the Mumak as you'll recall, but this doesn't even have a decent lot of colours like a howdah etc.


So now I've drybrushed some pale brownish colour on the bottom of it.


And a dark camo green on the scales.


I don't like how it looks at the moment, but the idea is that after the black washes go on it the colours will essentially disappear, but not quite be just the grey colours. A vague hint of green and a slightly lighter underbelly will hopefully remain, but still be really dark and black.

Anyway, that's where I'm up to so far!

  1. very nice.

    one thing you might try if you want to add a bit of color is put a blue wash on the top/scales before putting your black wash. P3 also has a turquoise ink that I love. It is a much stronger pigment than your typical "wash," but especially once you put brown/black wash over it to dirty it up, the results are quite good. I used this technique on my easterling Dragon Guard.
