For this week I painted up the Bride from Studio Miniatures. A rather basic paintjob as she is mostly white, but white clothes are something I am never certain of how to tackle. This time, I started with white primer, and then painting the entire dress in Fortress Grey. This was then heavily drybrushed with Spacewolves Grey, which I did again after adding White to the Spacewolves Grey, and finally a drybrush of just white. I am rather happy how it came out this time.
I used some watered down black to line the separation points. Her tiara crown is painted in GW Metallics Chainmail and Mithril Silver. For a little colour, I painted her wrist decoration in Foundry pinks (which will match the pink highlights of the rest of the wedding party).
For blood and gore, the bride only seems to have scratches to her arms, which I filled with blood. Her dress is full of holes, some that I left unblooded as they may just be tears, but there are several on her torso that I bloodied. I like to think that these are gun wounds that some survivor inflicted on her, not knowing headshots are what are needed.
So my first entry to Zomtober. Should be a good month. I'm hoping to feature 3 different miniature companies with my entries, though I'll probably use more Studio Miniatures to bring me up to 5 zeds. All comments are appreciated.
Happy Thanksgiving Canadians, Happy Columbus Day Americans and any other silly holidays that anyone else may be lucky enough to have this weekend.
