Cursed City: Brutogg

I have painted the Ogre adventurer from the Cursed City box, who goes by the name of Brutogg Corpse-Eater. No doubt that’s an old family name, and the Corpse-Eaters have a long and storied history in the local area.

I kept the purple motif colour from the other figures, but the main change on Brutogg was how I did the gold. Previously I have been following what I think of as the ‘Duncan method’ of painting Retributor Gold, followed by a wash with Reikland Fleshshade, followed by a further layer of Retributor Gold, and then highlights with increasing amounts of Liberator Gold.

This method was from a Games Workshop video released around the time the new gold paints came out, so maybe 3 or 4 years ago now. I have been using it ever since watching the video, and used it for Emelda Baskov’s armour, among others.

This time I started with Retributor Gold, but then used Contrast Black Templar, with a little bit of water added, as the wash. I then used Retributor Gold and Liberator Gold as before, the the finish looks different, and I think I prefer it.

    Very nice work on old Maggie Corpse-Eater’s little boy there. I’ve also found that you can get an effectve look using Nuln Oil Gloss, which I’ll sometimes use for a different look.
