Another day and another instalment of the Silver Tower Series. This time the beast of a model, the Ogroid Thaumaturge! I wanted to try and achieve a bit of a darker feel to this model than on the box art, it is a menacing looking model as you can see. Here is 'How I Paint' the Ogroid.
(Please Note: I show ways of painting miniatures in efficient time but maintaining quality, this is How I Paint them, not always how they should be painted, you are free to use and distribute photos and use any techniques I go over freely too)
I started by completely covering the model with Corax White, I then a glaze mix of Magical Blue (Vallejo) to paint over the back of the models. I followed this with a wash of Drakenhoff Nightshade and Lahmian Medium (50:50).
I then repeated the whole process to get the blends how I wanted them. After this, out came the airbrush and I used a mix of Black and Magical Blue (90:10) and painted in the darker features of the arms and legs.
For the Ram head on the staff, I based this in Ushabti Bone
The Hair and Hooves were base coated in Dryad Bark and this as well as the ram head were washed in Agrax Earthshade, the Horns were based in Rakarth Flesh and washed twice in Nuln Oil.
I drybrushed the ram head and horns with Rakarth Flesh and painted the Staff in Abbadon Black.
The Loin Cloth was based in Rakarth Flesh also. I also painted in the Temple Guard Blue for the Belt armour and washed it with Coliea Greenshade. The cloth was eventually washed with Agrax Earthshade.
I used Nihilahk Oxide (spelt completely wrong) to wash the ethereal effect on the staff and base coated the gold trims with Retributor Gold, this was followed by a wash of Reikland Flesh (Gloss)
The hair had a small amout of Troll Slayer Orange drybrushed on and the Teeth were base coated with Ushabti Bone. The red effect on the arms you can see is just a glaze of Bloodletter Red.
Once based in a simple stone scheme, the model was complete!
I hope you enjoyed this and you find some bits useful for yourselves, if you have a question please use comments below. Thanks!
