For Orcs (and other simple grubby types), a simple way of shading miniatures is to apply a wash of Army Painter Strong Tone ink. Normally I would only do this to the clothing and leather work, but I wasn't happy with the level of contrast on the flesh I painted yesterday, so I gave the flesh areas an ink wash as well. This provides the depth, tomorrow some highlights.
Lovely series of postings. Really enjoying them. Great to see how people paint their models stage by stage. Thanks for posting these and looking forward to the next one :-)ReplyDelete
