This past week I didn’t have a lot of time for painting, so I selected the Beggar from the Bones 4 Core Set Townsfolk group to work on.
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 then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I began by painting his face, hands and foot with Reaper MSP “Tanned Shadow”, and his pants with Americana “Charcoal Grey”. I then painted his tunic Pathfinder MSP “Medusa Green”, and his cape with Americana “Neutral Grey”.
Next, I painted his boots with Americana “Aspahltum”, and his staff with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”. I then painted his bowl with Americana “Mississippi Mud”, and then painted his hair with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cinnamon Brown." After that, I painted his patches an assortment of colors I had sitting around the painting table.
I painted his belt with Nicole’s "Brown”, and then let the figure dry for awhile. When the paint was good and dry, I began with the washes. First I applied a coat of Citadel “Reikland Feleshade” wash to the face hands and foot. When that was dry, I applied Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash to the cape. When that was dry, I applied Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” to the rest of the figure.
When all the washes were dry, I began work on the face, painting the eyes and his single tooth, and then highlighting all the skin with Reaper MSP “Tanned Skin” and “Tanned Highlight”. After that I highlighted the hair with Americana “Sable Brown”, and then highlighted the pants with a mix of the “Mississippi Mud” and the base “Charcoal Grey”. After that I highlighted the tunic with Americana “Jade Green”.
A nice simple figure; not my best, but an easy and fun paint.
