I have just finished painting up the Wolf Guard in this diorama. It was harder than I thought it would be. Since it is the focus point of the diorama it had to be done well, but I wanted a more realistic look than the over-highlighted look (which I like by the way). So I opted for less highlights were possible and more battle damage. I also chose to paint with metallics rather than make it look like metal with non-metallic paint. I was hoping it would give it a grittier feel to it.
The next step is painting the blood on the chainsword and adding some dust effects when it goes into the diorama. Does anybody know what colour orc blood is?
Now I have 3 orcs left to paint up and the diorama itself. Unfortunately I cannot start the stand until I receive the wooden base, even though I have all the parts, so I will start the next figure which is the Orc being strangled.
Farewell and good health,
