A place for me to post about my miniature painting habit! I've rediscoved the hobby after a 20+ year hiatus and am learning all over again.

I have not been actively painting my Green Horde/Black Plague minis much recently, but since I was painting some light green monsters last month I dug this guy out to work on.

For the greens I did a wet blend of Ogryn Camo and Vallejo light gray green. I then did a little drybrushing with the gray green and a little Ivory. I then did a wash with Athonian Camoshade since the final effect was too light and stark looking. This brought things back into the mossy green area. I did a couple localized washes with Agrax Earthshade to darker areas to bring in a little more shadow and some browns.

I did another wet blend with some darker greens for the spots and the spikes. I added some Moot green in stages to highlight the spikes a bit which adds a bit of flourescent green to the edge highlights.

In between the plates of armor I did Vallejo Hull Red with some highlights to muscle with brighter reds. I ended up a little too pink and did a wash over this with Carroberg Crimson (also for the mouth.)

I had planned to do a swamp water base but got lazy and this guy just didn't seem worth it!

I'll add this to my master Green Horde mini list HERE.
