Warmachine Khador Great Bears of Gallowswood

I just finished these. These were awesome miniatures to paint. One piece of advice I would give is to glue the arms on first, before priming. I painted the arms separately, which was cool, but it would have been far more efficient to do it the other way. The paints I used were GW Foundation Mechrite Red over the black primer, followed by a number of coats of Derivan Rourke's Drift Red, followed by Derivan Roman Red, followed by Reaper Clear Red. The blue is Delta Ceramcote Payne's Gray, highlighted by adding Delta Ceramcote Ivory to it, The flesh is Privateer Press PP3 as is the Flesh Wash and Armor Wash. The metallics are GW, as is the old Citadel Flesh Wash I painted over a coat of diluted white paint to make one of the lads a blond. The Field Gray on the inside of the cloaks is an Italian paint called Lifecolor, an old (read 1998 old) favorite of mine. The bear pelts were painted with about 8 drybrushes of various off-whites over the original black followed by a wash of Reaper Creamy Ivory. I used Reaper Brown Liner on the axe handles.

Your painting has improved SO much over the past year or so. The proof is in the pudding. Lovely models.
