Twist Elder PIP 2 - Shadey Business

Some more work on my Elder Twist. Skin color down and started on the staff. I've gone for a black shaft with a nicely polished skull on top. This has all been achieved through washes and I'm very much experimenting. If you have any feedback, please leave a comment below.

Twist Elder PIP or How I Learned to Love the Shades

So I've managed to get some paint down. It's been a long time since I've put a brush to a model, the last time being my Inquisitorial Henchman, the smuggler turned Inquisition Pilot, Henrik Frey.

This guy so far has had a Chaos Black undercoat followed by a Corax White zenithal highlight. Once dry (and about 3 months later...if I'm generous) he's been given 2 washes of Athonian Camoshade over the shawl and after two thinned coats of Rakarth Flesh, the robe was washed with Agrax Earthshade 3 times. That's it so far. I will be following this up with several further washes to make him look suitably filthy as only a twist should.

The paint scheme is inspired by druidic colours and I'm really looking forward to getting him finished.
