It's been a loooong time since I posted anything (for those actually following/checking timestamps).
I have got stuff done, although my progress is slow. I get easily distracted by writing, videogames, and playing shiny new games with the group here.
I digress, so back to the point: Tcho Tcho, in all their unnatural pinkness.
Many Tcho Tcho Spellbooks revolve around the use, sacrifice, and recruitment of High Priests.
I have the custom cultists for all other factions, and will paint them in sets, after my next project is complete…
These guys were painted using zenithal techniques, along with some very heavy washes and light drybrushing. Feathering was used extensively to blend the flesh colours into the pink shades.
I used a lot of washes and shading down from white on the fire, rather than blending up from black. There are also numerous mid-stage glazes to try and blend the fire effects as seamlessly as possible.
The OSL I couldn't quite get on this scale, so I went with an edge wash and narrowing highlight instead.
Despite the elephantine appearance, I wanted to use a more naturalistic palette, trying to make it look more like part of a forest had come to baleful life. This is also the reason for the flock, leaves, and foliage scattered on the model.
