Bleak Legion Photoshooting: Dread Elf Raiders

On a cold Thursday afternoon I arrived at the place where my good friend Kai setup his camera equipment.

Dread Reaper – Copper Cutter

After missing the painting challenge deadline, I hurried up to actually finish the second Dread Reaper.

Dread Reaper – The Bleak Spear

Welcome to another edition of my painting blog. For the painting challenge over on druchii.net I tried to complete two Dread Reapers in February. While the second one’s crew is not quite finished, the first one is ready for presentation here.

I recently acquired a daylight lamp, which have to say is fantastic during painting. I have to thank UK for the tip. Of course he uses two. Cannot have too much light I guess.

For the colour scheme I stayed to my black-white-red routine, but I had help. I used the excellent painting tutorial from the user „Naggarond“ over on druchii.net.
