WIP: Dark Vengeance Company Master & Oh Flock, I Stained It!
So after blazing through the Chaplain and Librarian I stormed onto this guy. Let's see how that is going shall we?
A while ago I saw this mini over at Bloody Beast and really loved it. So I went ahead and bought it. What can I say? I love that mini. Here it is side by side with mine. His has a hand swap too :)
*NOTE: The ladies in your lives might like this project if they want to try out various stains and techniques like antique distressing before committing to anything and they will feel involved in your hobby time, plus you'll get some nice display cubes for your minis too, so that's a nice bonus ;)
Also, I had a few questions regarding my flocking process - that's flocking, FLOCKING. So here is pictorial breakdown of the process and a brief run down...
Flock: Simply sprinkle some over the glue and let it set for a minute or two then tap/ gently blow the excess off.
Static grass: Pick up a big clump with some tweezers and place it over the glue in a big pile, then use the handle of tweezers (if it is flat) or other small flat tool to gently press the pile of static grass down and hold it for a few seconds. The compression gives it a more natural spread out look as opposed to just sprinkling it on and shaking it off. Again, tap/ gently blow the excess off and you're done!
Next post: More Company Master WIPs and I got a bunch of stuff in the mail that I'll show you. The new rathcore mini holders for one, my spoils from the paint the city pink fundraiser and charity auction for another. Also, please check out the Blog roll as I've added more sites. For the love of God don't join C'MON ;) It's super addictive, a great hobby resource for tips, tricks and retailers; as well as being a wellspring for awesome artists and blogs to draw inspiration from!
