Rogue Trader models sculpted by Kev Adams

Colours used:


50% Goblin Green, 25% white, 25% sunburst yellow, and a dash of Windsor and Newton Apple Green ink to thin. Wash with GW Green Ink to shade the skin then reapply the base colour to all except the deepest portions. Highlight adding yellow and white each layer, the last two layers adding just white. Afterward glaze with W&N Apple Green Ink.


Enchanted blue washed over with W&N ultramarine ink (maybe a bad idea as this turned out not to be waterproof when dry and so would bleed into other colours). Add white for highlights.


Vomit brown washed with Devlan Mud. Add white to the vomit brown for highlights.


Evil Sunz Scarlet adding white and yellow for highlights, glazed with W&N vermillion ink.


Bad Moon Yellow washed with W&N orange ink. Add white to the yellow for highlights.


Bubonic Brown base edge. Sand: Bubonic brown and burnt umber ink. Bleached bone then white drybrushed on for highlights.

Welcome, Dear Reader

Dear Reader, welcome to my humble weblog. I have started this, not with the expectation that anyone will read it, though I am of course grateful to anyone who does, but rather to function as a painting diary and repository of my various musings as I from time to time see fit to put into writing. Photographs and various posts will, hopefully, follow in due course. I personally hope that this blog will allow me track my progress in terms of both painting and photography. I would be most gratified if, in addition to that, people actually read and enjoyed some of the content.
