After a busy weekend editing vids for my Youtube channel (see previous post), today I was back painting the Mutants. There's been a slight change in direction by the customer, instead of a uniform gang, all members are to have an individual look. This means that I can mix it up a little & add in a few more colours. As I was working on the metallic areas, I remembered painting a similar unit of Orks some years ago which used a mixed clothing/equipment scheme. After some rummaging around my electronic painting file I found the guide & decided to use a large part of it for these mutants. The Orks had various coloured clothing & rusted weapons which is ideal for this project.
I therefore concentrated my efforts on getting all the colours I needed painting prior to a brown wash. My guide has these colours being washed first with the brown & later with a black wash, the finished result is dark/grimy/dirty, ideal for mutants.
