Bushido Savage Wave Starter Set, Part 5

Well, it’s a bachelor weekend here at the cbaggery! I do have a paying project to attend to, but with two and a half days to myself, there should a few painting updates this weekend. 🙂


First up, finishing off the brown parts of Zuba’s paint scheme (and the bakemono, of course). His armour got a wash of a GW Gryphonne Sepia and a dot of P3 yellow ink mix. His hakama got a wash of P3 Brown Ink, Matt Medium and Flow improver. The P3 brown ink is a really nice colour to work with – P3 inks are super saturated, and very strong tones, and the brown ink has a purple bias to it. It’s a very nice product to use.

To tone down the yellow tint in Zuba’s armour, I gave it a couple washes of straight Gryphonne Sepia.

Now to start boning the models. I begin layering the linen bandages, skulls, teeth and bones with RMS Creamy Ivory.

Next step is a layer of RMS Linen White – this is one of my favorite colours in the RMS range. It’s very very subtle, I use it in almost every paint job at some point. But it’s really amazing when working with bone colours.

Now a layer of RMS pure white.

And lastly a layer of VMC white, but only on the tusks and bones. VMC White is a very brilliant white, and brighter than RMS white. I like to use it as a top spectral highlight, for anything that will catch light, such as something thats polished. I’m not sure if it will show up in the photos, though.

Finally, I add different washes to the different materials. The tape/linen on Zuba’s hammer gets a wash of Devlan Mud – I wanted something dirty, to give a sense of centuries of demon sweat soaking into the cloth. The skulls got a wash of Ogryn Flesh, to give them an aged look, while the teeth/tusks received a wash of Gryphonne Sepia.
