Right I’ll start with a quick re-cap of what’s going on over here at “Webb Towers”, I am basically deep in the throes of batch painting up the rest of my Scrunt’s (by Bob Olley) as my submission for this years “Mo’vember” challenge, though I am not exactly sticking to the rules, I’m not going to go into this, (if you are interested read my last post). Anyway when last you saw the short chaps they looked like this…..
Well I have made some progress on them since then, you’ll see how much later in this post. But before I get into all that I’d just like to point you all in the direction of “Azazel’s Bitz Box” where he has now posted up all the participants work in his Unit-ed challenge (including my humble efforts), there is some simply stunning work on show there, and as soon as you have finished reading this (and not before!!!) I encourage you to go over there and be amazed!
Anyway back to my figures, and painting re-commenced as follows. European flesh was used to undercoat all the exposed “fleshy” areas basically their hands and the bits of their faces not obscured by bristles! Then after I added the eyes on the ones where you could see them (seven of the fourteen, are wearing glasses, I hate doing eyes so thanks Bob!) in white and black these a5reas were highlighted with more European flesh lightened with a bit of pale flesh. I turned my attention to the padding they all have across the top rear of their boiler suits next, again keeping with the colours I have used on my other “Scrunt’s” I went for royal blue that was highlighted with some bright blue. Finally this week I have made a start on the all-important facial hair they are all sporting, by undercoating these areas with either chocolate brown, dark sand, light sand, chestnut brown, or dark grey, these will of course be highlighted with lighter versions of themselves next, but more on that next time.
So only a short post this time, but at least I think I’m over the brow of the hill now, they might even be finished in the next post but till then… cheers Roger.
