Wrapped up work on the revenant's base. I think so, at least. I may find touch ups or other things I need to fix as I go on.

Revenant Base: More Vines

Revenant Base: Vines
I got a base coat on the vines on the revenant's base. It was a big pain. Partly that was my own fault for the color I chose - that kind of yellowish green paint has notoriously bad coverage. This particular one wasn't too bad; it only took three coats to get a good solid base. However, getting the base color on the vines against the skull took patience and a steady hand, and I still have to do some cleanup there.

Revenant Base: Ferns
Wednesday, June 15, 2022
I felt like working on the revenant's base today. I've shaded and highlighted the big skull. Got another base layer on the little skull, and then promptly forgot about it again. :( In any case, next will be finishing the little skull and starting on the ferns and vines.

Banshee: Lantern. Set: Base.
I painted the inner bits of the banshee's lantern and, for good or ill, reattached it. Happy with the result, though it's just a base coat.
Also started putting together a base for my next large format project. This will be a 72mm Set. The pillars are resin prints, the base the figure came with is in there, and then I slathered texture paste over the whole thing to be sandy ground.
I need to make some decisions on how 'ruined' it should look. There is sand covering the tile floor, which says 'pretty ruined' to me, but I didn't break the pillars, and I'd kinda like to paint them as they'd have been at the time (to the best of our knowledge, anyway). Also second guessing how far I took the sandy stuff up to the bases of the pillars. I might adjust that.
The holes are the spots where he's supposed to attach to the base that came with the figure.

Did a little work on the revenant's base. Painted the dirt texture I added the same base brown, and base coated the rest of the skull. I've decided to go with spring colors for him, though I won't get to the greenery for a bit.

Banshee: Clothes, Lamp
Finished the basecoat on the banshee's clothing, and started her lamp. I need to paint the lamp and some of the area around it and then get it attached so I can do the source lighting from the right directions.

Banshee: Veil. Revenant: Base

Warsong Revenant: Base
Started a new 32mm figure. This is the Warsong Revenant from Games Workshop...or at least his base. This figure comes in many, many parts, and determining what can be put together and what has to be painted before the next piece can be added...it's like a puzzle.
In any case, here's his base. I had most of it put together, but one of the fern pieces was going to make it hard to paint some of the stuff around it. So, I painted the area under and behind, and then glued the fern on.
Next, I'm going to put some texture paste around it to being the ground up to the edge of the base, and then add some more plants. After that I'm going to have to start making some decisions pretty quickly. I painted a figure from this faction last year or the year before, and I gave it fall coloring. Based on the plants here, this figure really wants to be more of a spring/early summer thing. I don't feel like I need to do them in the same colors - I'm not building an army. But I do like the fall colors on the other guy. So, I'm going to have to give that some thought.
