Bones update 32: that undead glow

I completed a pair of models from the Bones I Kickstarter:

For these models I used the new(ish) technical paints from Games Workshop, Hexwraith Flame (the green) and Nighthaunt Gloom (the blue.

The Nighthaunt Gloom surprised me by looking more gray than blue. However I picked out some of the recesses of the armour with a 50/50 mix of the Gloom and Nuln Oil, then used straight white as a highlight.

Hexwraith Flame didn’t need any Nuln Oil added (in my opinion) as a second coat over the first served to created adequate depth – again, in my opinion. This then also received a straight white highlight.

I didn’t set out the speedpaint these, but it took maybe 40 minutes to complete this pair, less if you don’t include drying time.

You can expect to see more Bones undead models painted like these.

Extra bonus: since these models are armoured, the form my entry to Azazel’s Armoured April painting challenge. Woo!

    That is an interesting effect those paints provide. I’ll have to crack my pots of these open sometime, when I can, and give them a try.

    Nice work, Dave. Have the models coped well without becoming sticky/tacky since you painted them?

      Yes, no dramas on that front, which was a pleasant surprise. With past models I have found the best way to avoid stickiness is to not use an undercoat, but using the thinner glow paints demanded a white undercoat. They are fine, and I have painted a few more since these with no problems.

        Good to hear. I’ve used a shellac spray with some success, but due to the bendy nature of the material, the shellac can flake off as it’s much more rigid than our model paints…

        Whoops – I’ve just asked the same question in another post – what undercoat did you use on these?
