Saproling Warrior: Bones 3 Figure, as Ghost Archipelago Cortiki

Chris Palmer

     Along with the Shadow figure I posted last Thursday, I also painted this past week the Saproling Warrior from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion.     I painted this to use as a Cortiki for Ghost Archipelago.  The rules describe the Cortiki as a demon resembling the crude figure of a man carved into a log.  So, this doesn’t quite capture the “carved” aspect, but covers the log-man aspect. 
     I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it.    I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue.   And, when the glue was dry,  I put it in my Citadel painting grip.

      I began by painting the entire figure with Americana “Charcoal Grey”.  When dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash.

    When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the entire figure with Folk Art “Barn Wood”.  Next, I painted his eyes with Crafter’s Acrylic “Wild Green”.  I then painted the centers of the eyes with Reaper MSP “Dungeon Slime”, and then added pupils with White. 
       Lastly, I painted the figure’s base with Americana “Raw Umber”.
     I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.    Then, when  the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base.  Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor’s Dullcote".

   While not the perfect Cortiki, I like how this figure turned out; and it was a nice simple one to paint up that responded well to drybrushing.
