|Yeti WIP - Brown wash over Light Brown undercoat, then black wash and finally a Light Brown wet-brush|
This Yeti model by "Black Tree Design" is one of five such figures I've been progressing this weekend. As they are based upon the Great Intelligence's mechanical monsters from the BBC Television "Doctor Who" 1967 story "The Abominable Snowmen" I've gone with a somewhat light brown colour scheme. However I have also washed parts of the 'hairy beastie' with some "Citadel" Nuln Oil in order to darken the area around the eyes, hands and webbed feet.
This particular model is my 'test piece' as I wanted to see how a wet-brush would work for the creatures fur, as the sculpt is very well-detailed. I'm not convinced it has worked at all, to be honest, so expect five dry-brushed Yeti heading on their way to the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge next weekend.

Another submission close to completion will (finally) be this nicely posed miniature of Stefan Travers accompanied by four more Federated Security Guards. These "Crooked Dice Game Design Studio" figures have been sat gathering dust upon my painting table for a few weeks now. But I have finally started picking out the Federation Carbines on the black-clad minions, and applied some black washes to their Commander's model.
|"Heroclix" WIP - Flesh and Red washes for Silver Samurai, and Gold for Moon Knight's throwing blade|
Finally I've been carrying on 'chipping' away at the mountain of pre-painted "Wizkids" plastic models I own, and hope to have finished painting these rather nice models of the Silver Samurai, Moon Knight and The Thing within the next few days. Apart from a few washes here, and some general tidying up here and there, these three miniatures should be ready for next weekend as well.
