I have always been a massive fan of the forgeworld renegade models but never felt like collecting an entire force. While at the 2010 UK games day I managed to pick up one of the renegade ogryns, specificly the one below, with the intent of just painting it up as a display piece:
During the Xmas period, while sorting out my many ongoing projects and decided it was time to paint this figure up.
This log will be more of a paint in progress for a single figure from start to finish, instead of a full army.
Also I'll try to make note of all the painting stages and techniques i use if anybody is interested.
Without further ado:
First of all for all of those who have not worked with resin, it is importent to wash all the peices in warm soapy water.
This removes any residual mold release still on the model. If this is left the paint will not stick to the model and will rub off and chip very easily.
The Forgeworld minitures are ususaly very well cast, this one had a few air pockets that had to be filled in with green stuff before priming and spraying with black undercoat.
The hood was undercoated with a 3-1 mix of Dheneb stone and charadon granite.
The trousers are painted with pure catachan green.
The skin was painted with a 1-1 mix of charadon granite and graveyard earth.
Finaly the plates are painted with pure vermin brown.
More will follow later tonight.
Comment, questions and criticism is always welcome.
