Thanks @Farmer7574 !

Simple drybrybrushing and washes.

Rakarth flesh, agrax earthshade, rakarth flesh drybrush, add some white and hit it again, then i splashed some seraphim sephia and athonian camoshade around, not showing much on this pic.

I'll replace these with better pictures once I get a chance to borrow my dad's Nikon. The metallics also need a bit of a highlighting (waiting for the weather to dry up so I can matte varnish them, then drybrush on Gehanna's gold).

Metallics: warplock bronze undercoat > balthasar gold drybrush > citadel verdigris technical paint
Bone: armypainter bone spray undercoat > devlan mud wash > drybrush ushabti bone
Shields: ceramite white undercoat > devlan mud wash > heavily watered ceramite white
Bases: zamasi desert undercoat > heavy drybrush ushabti bone > light drybrush ceramite white

Love the "rising-from-the-dunes"-theme, Pirate. Had something similar in mind myself, but never got my thumb out to do it. Goddamn inspirational, that is. :D

Anyways, here's my first merry troupe: The Mah'Hat Mnfyt, Entombed Guardians of Lady Nofret IV of Great House Iximet (also known as Tarpit #1).

The pictures shows them angrily rampaging across my cluttered desk in search for new victims, a crisper paint-job and an updated Army Book.

Ok so here's some old one's. My first models ever painted at about the age of 9 or so (I don't repaint them for sentimental reasons):



I believe they were basecoated in bleached bone then drybrushed in snakebite leather then bestial brown. Back to front :lol:

Finally gotten around to taking some pics of some of my more recent skellies. I painted them throughout 2013 during the time I was getting back into the hobby after a long break. This time opted for a no-red colour scheme.

Sword & board skeletons:




Spears:




C&C welcome.

@Jepserios If he's a bit intimidating for you to paint all at once, I'd make him bite size projects; robes, do something different, body, another something different, final steps.

I know what you mean. I painted the ogre mammoth for a friend, and it was super fun..but when it came tro my own ME, I was very happy with the result, but extremely annoyed during some painting phases
