  • The trousers were basecoated with leather brown
  • Then given a wash of strong tone ink
  • Monster brown was painted onto all the raised surfaces of the trousers leaving the darker colour in the recess
  • A mix of monster brown and desert yellow was applied as a broad highlight to the creases and thighs



  • Banshee brown was added to the previous mix and applied to the same parts of the trousers but on a smaller area so that some of the previous highlight was still visible.
  • Banshee brown was used as a final highlight on the edges of the trousers
  • The sweater was basecoated with crystal blue
  • Then given a wash of blue tone ink




  • Crystal blue was reapplied leaving the dark wash in the recess of the sweater
  • A mix of crystal blue and electric blue was applied as a broad highlight 
  • White was added to the previous mix and used to pick out the edges of the sweater
  • The shirt was painting with a basecoat of dungeon grey and a highlight of ash grey



  • The boots, belt and hat were basecoated with a mix of oak brown and black. The jacket was painted with a mix of deep blue and black and finally the knife and tie were painted with black
  • Dark wash was then applied to all of these parts of the model.




  • A mix of deep blue and black was applied to the jacket leaving the dark recesses as an outline
  • Hydra turquoise was applied as an edge highlight





  • A very light mix of hydra turquoise and white was applied as a sharp edge highlight
  • A mix of deep blue and black was applied as a glaze over the jacket to tone down the intensity of the previous step. It's important to use a lot of water to dilute this mix and to apply this neatly using only a small amount of the paint on the brush to avoid the paint pooling in the recesses



  • The hat, boots and belt were painted with oak brown, as usual the darker shade was left in the recesses
  • Oak brown mixed with monster brown was applied as the first highlight


  • Banshee brown was added to the previous mix and used to pick out the edges and other details
  • The skin was basecoated with monster brown



  • A wash of flesh tone ink was applied over the the skin
  • A second wash of flesh tone ink was applied to the hands and details of the face



  • A mix of kobold skin and monster brown was applied as a midtone
  • More kobold skin was added to the previous mix and applied to the raised parts of the face and hands



  • A mix of pure red and kobold skin was applied to the cheeks
  • The eyes were painted with a mix of kobold skin and white



  • A dot of black mixed with a little monster brown was used for the irises of the eyes
  • The knife was painted with dungeon grey leaving some of the black as shading
  • A mix of white and dungeon grey was applied as a highlight
  • Pure white was used to edge highlight the knife
