Next part of the Dreamer crew is done with the alps, fun to paint but my word is it a big leap from the m2e versions of these guys. They are MASSIVE!
Got my hands on the new Dreamer kit recently and well the new Lord Chompy Bits, is well…………..
Bonkers, he is bonkers no other word for it! he is on a 50mm base and still towers over everything. He is literally a beast!
So this is my first model painted using Contrast.
Admittedly I didnt use the offiial undercoating, just good ol’ Halfords grey prime. Which didnt work so I started trying other things.
I can report that Army Painter White does OK as a base layer for contrast.
I also found that mixing contrast with a normal colour can give some interesting effects and provides a layering before you go in with the contrast on its own.
Finally I can report that Vallejo airbrush thinner works as a medium for contrast as well (we know its not just water, dont it had no ill effect).
I like contrast as another string to the bow but I am more comfortable with what I do in general. The cloth for instance is standard layer and wash.
More experimenting is needed and as I dont want to change mid-project. I think Slaanesh will be the first army that I go for a really good test of the paint.
As I love the idea of using the hothead in Zorida crews (in other words in the Gremlins faction) I need something more appropriate to my tastes. Hence we have an Elvis impersonating Gremlin with lovely hair piece to match..
This isn’t me dipping into Ressers this is Zorida and Jack Daw needing some medical assistance..
Everyone needs some spiritual guidance sometimes even crazed killers like the Nephilim and what says spiritual more than blood sacrifices?
They may not see a lot of play outside of a summoning Dreamer, but I do think they have potential in other crews. Must use them more…
