This week I also completed the pair of Cultists from the Bones II Expansion Pack I. I figured they were a suitable follow-up to the Summoning Circle and Demi-Lich I did two weeks ago.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I then glued them each to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue and glued the washers to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s White Glue. .
I began by painting the figures both completely with Black. I then drybrushed both with Folk Art “Settlers Blue”
Next, I painted their decorative hangings with GW “Blood Red”, and then did trim on them with Americana “Cranberry Wine”. I then painted the pages of the book with Americana “Buttermilk”.
I painted their faces and hands with DecoArt “Flesh”, and the handle of the knife with Americana
“Charcoal Grey”. I then went back and painted the teeth on the one with the book, using DecoArt “Light Antique White”. When these had had a sufficient amount of time to dry, I gave the flesh parts and the pages of the book all a wash with GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash using a wet brush.
I’m pleased with how these fellows turned out. Not the greatest paint job, but good enough for gaming use.
