|Yin the Penangalan|
I have had a crew mouldering in the closet for nearly two years, as I loved the models but had no reason to paint them. Well now I do and Yin is the first completed.
I wanted to do a very easy and simple paint job on my crew as they need to be ready for another game next Saturday, so I have not gone full out on the painting, opting for alot of washes and drybrushing to do the bulk of the work for me. It has actually worked really well and I enjoyed the process alot. Mixing different colour washes and building layers with them created some really nice tones, especially on the entrails. I am working next on Yan Lo, the crew master, and hope to update on here pretty shortly with another finished mini :)
I really enjoyed making the bases for these as well. I tore up strips of Balsa wood and then soaked sand in superglue to get the clumped effect. Lots of drybrushing later and I was extremely pleased with the result. Being undead japanese samurai & mythical oriental creatires I was aiming for a mouldering dojo floor, rotting away with the slain occupants still guarding it and fighting off the intruders to their sacred place.
