Outcasts – Void Wretches

I successfully used plastic glue on these guys, so they didn’t need (*cough*) any paint. So this is as good a place as any to talk about how I’m doing my Outcast bases!

I started with Secret Weapon resin cobblestone bases. I picked a bunch of these up while at AdeptiCon because I wanted to finally get some of them under my models. I think in the end, I’d rather do my own bases. I feel like I’m getting pretty good at customizing themย and I don’t have to order in more when I find out I don’t have enough. >.<

 

I basecoated them with a drybrush of Codex Grey and Fortress Grey. This looked pretty crappy. I think the roundness of the cobblestones just made it look bad, as opposed to a grey square brick. Anyway, a long way still to go. ๐Ÿ™‚

I used the Amethyst (purple) and Sapphire (blue) Secret Weapon washes to heavily shade the crevasses, and also to tint the surfaces. GW Waywatcher Green was used in puddles to bring little spots of green around.

Then I drybrushed again with Fortress Grey to bring the highlight back up.

SW Red Black wash (which is actually kind of…purpley) and Flesh Wash over the gravel bits. I used the Oxid Paste to keep the Wretches feet well anchored to their bases, and wanted to colour this differently.

Then I drybrushed up again with Fortress Grey and mixed in Skull White over 3 layers to bring the shade way up again. I drybrushed Zamesi Desert, mixed with Ushapti Bone over the gravel and called it a day.

The details were Warpstone Glow Leaves, Mithril Silver metal and Zamesi Desert rope. I did these colours early so that the various glazes and washes would colour them as well.

 

As usual, I wasn’t happy with how it looked until I finished and then walked away for a couple days. Now I’m really glad that they look great, and didn’t need any paint! ๐Ÿ˜›
