Fopish rogue

Just one of those side projects to divert my attentions from larger projects. This one, however, only took about an hour to coomplete.

For the red color, the paints I used, in order from first to last, were Foundry Spearshaft 13B, Reaper Pro Paints Blood Red, Reaper Bright Red, Reaper Dragon Red and Reaper Bright Orange.

Foundry spearshaft is a light tan color. I prefer tans and light browns as a basecoat for bright reds as opposed to whites. Whites usually require a coat or two for full coverage, but most light browns have good coverage so that only one coat is needed, thus preventing a needless buildup of multiple basecoats.

The speed of painting the whole figure was accomodated by the use of a very small palette. Along with the red, I used browns for the tannery and gold for the metals (as well as a Foundry flesh palette fo the face.) The figure, by the way, is Reaper No. 2775: Edward Dumond.


  1. Great stuff! I love the Nile cruiser you scratch buildt. I like the wheathering on the wood, very nice indeed.
    Amazing painting on the figures aswell, goes without saying really. Great stuff.

  2. Thanks for the compliment, Secondus! Lovely avatar there :)

  3. Thanks, I see you like to play with a little photoshop yourself. By the way, using paint as blood wasn't one of my better ideas, I had a red face all day. It's all worth it though lol.
