Auticus Paints – The Nord Huscarl!
Finishing Touches on the Metal and the Cloak
The iron / steel areas are hit with a Nuln Oil (what some consider to be – the best oil) shade and the gold and brass are hit with Earthshade.
Technical green spirit stone paint is used to create emerald gem-effects where I want them on the sword hilt or on the cloak broach.
I then pick out the leather ties in the warrior’s beard with a light white color to let it stand out.
Last for the cloak as it is black, I do two layers of drybrushing of dark grey and a lighter grey to bring out the contours of the cloth. I do a ghostly grey white fine drybrush over the fur trim to let it stand out.
Then when those are finished, I glue the back of the cloak onto the model.
We’re almost there!
