I painted the little Grot Ninja, and since he ended up relatively featureless and dull (well, black) I decided to give him a glowing powersword.
@Darkwing - I know this isn't really sneaky and Ninja-Like, but on the other hand, who'd be afraid of such a little Ninja, that only reaches about thigh high :)
With the powersword and a little glow he looks a bit more catchy.
And on the base it really fits nicely.
In a later image you can see that I even added a little glow to the stones.
Then it was time to begin with the boss.
As mentioned I wasn't sure if I'd go for the camo pattern or something else.
I decided to give him a relatively "traditional" paintjob, with lots of rust and some colored panels. For the base color I used Lemmingspawns recepie with a mix of Scorched Brown and Dark Skin with a little touch to red.
Over this I added a very, very thin wash of Tin Bizz (about 10:1 water:color)
Which at first looks quite shiny,
but another wash of Devlan Mud fixes things nicely.
Then I began to color some panels, using the traditional red, yellow, and blue.
Then some weathering using a piece of foam and a very dark grey and another wash of Devlan Mud.
While the Boss' paitn dried, I started with the Gretchin drummer.
He really looks cool on top of the Boss' shoulder.
