Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Blackstone Fortress: the Kroot

The penultimate figure in my Blackstone Fortress set is now complete. Behold the Kroot:

This figure also marks my first use of Games Workshop’s new line of contrast paints. I used them on the metal parts of the gun, the green cloak, and the head spines, claws, and piece of bone attached to the gun barrel.

I’m happy with how they worked, especially the green, which formed shades and highlights as I watched.

The paints also mix in nicely with non-contrast paints, it’s not a case of all or nothing.

After this model there’s only Taddeus the Purfier to go, and then my box is complete.

    Very nicely done! I really do like that figure! Nice to be able to mix and match with “normal” and contrast paints.

      Yes, I have so far come to view them as a useful option but not a replacement for existing paints.
