Back to business after a break in the Middle Earth and battlefields of the 41st Millenium. All dwarves are now undercoated - I had to do this with a brush using the Warcolours Grey primer since the weather patterns are currently so erratic here. Also since I'm unable to try zenithal highlighting which I've been planning to do, I decided to apply base shading using different wash colors on the undercoat (skin, beard, metal, cloth) I think this speeds up the painting process considerably.
I really like these classic scuplts. As with the color scheme the only unifying factor here really are the traditional orange slayer beards, but even there I have some subtle hue differences. I also decided not to go too bright on the orange highlights on the beards and I'm quite content with the result.
