Warplock Jezzails (I)

I have just finished painting two warplock jezzail teams.
I have followed closely the jezzails from Nico as I love how they look like. You can find them in this post from his Realm of Chaos blog.

One of the bases is resin and the other is custom made with cork, using the same recipe as in the rest of the army.
I like how they have turned out although I could have invested more time in the skin. The black stripes on the clothing creates a very nice effect.

Since some people have asked me I will outline the steps I follow in painting my ratmen:

  1. Black undercoat with Black Army Painter spray
  2. Model Color German Grey for the base
  3. Drybrush the base with Army Painter Wolf Grey and Game Color Wolf Grey
  4. Basecoat of Vallejo Game color Charred Brown for wood, leather and skin
  5. Basecoat color for clothes, in this case, Game Color Plague Brown
  6. Basecoat of Model Color Gunmetal Grey for metal
  7. Generous layer of Army Painter Dark Tone quickshade over all clothing, leather and wood
  8. Drybrush on skin using Model Color Flat Brown
  9. Light the skin with some lighter tone of brown
  10. Nails and teeth with Games Workshop Ushabti Bone
  11. Eyes with Games Workshop Mephiston Red and light with Game color Parasite Brown
  12. Leather and belts done with a mixture of Parasite Brown, Ushabti Bone, Plague Brown and Charred Brown
  13. Flesh with Game Color Dwarf Flesh and lights applied by mixing it with Ushabti Bone
  14. Apply rust effect using Parasite Brown on metals, mainly by light drybrush
  15. Apply effects on metals using Game Color Silver
  16. Finish details such as warpstone, glow effects, etc..
  17. Apply a subtle drybrush of Vallejo Burnt Umber pigment on the base and lower part of the clothing to create a dirty/rusty effect
  18. Glue the grass to the base
  19. Apply a generous layer of anti-shine varnish Army Painter spray
  20. Apply with a brush if needed Vallejo Gloss Varnish (to warpstone for example)
On the step #13 the rat is basically done, so if pressured with time you could leave them like that.

Painted in 2015
