Well I wanted to make my own Carver because why not 🙂 Although pumpkin boy is cool I wanted one that matches the rest of the Dreamer force a bit more.
So a dive into tinfoil and green stuff and a few random orc weapons later. I present Carver the daddy of the stitches.
And to give you an idea of how big he is to his “children”
I have managed to make my way through must of the Teddies that Wyrd have sold. Now, with myself starting another dreamer crew means I needed a new Teddy.
I know this is Marlene, but the size of those claws and the fact she fits so perfectly onto a 50mm base….
I had to have her as Dreamers play date in faux
Wanting to be a bit different and having a conversion for Serena. I didnt need the new box so managed to pick up some cheap TOS models and I think they certainly work as IMs 🙂
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.
