McMourning and his Belles: Finished (almost)

The commencement of the World Cup (hurrah!) has gotten slightly in the way of the painting, but I did manage to get some of the McMourning Resurrectionist bases sorted over the weekend.

Which means I am delighted to present some finished product rather than the usual Works in Progress.

I say finished, but I do intend to pour in some tinted resin so the water has a little bit of depth. I did a test base last night and left the resin curing overnight. Tip: tinting with Vallejo paints doesn’t work. GW inks and washes do though and I am hoping they don’t upset the chemical process.

So, here’s Dr Douglas McMourning and a couple of Rotten Belles (as usual click on through to higher res pics on my Flickr account).

First up an McMourning, as Joker, lookin’ all mean in his stripey trousers and blood splatters:

And the blonde one with her purple brollie:

I ummed and aahed a fair bit about how to do the wood on the dockside bases (excellent resin pieces from Kerr & King) and got some tips from some folks over on the Platoon Britannica forums (top advice from uberpainter mr_scream). Really pleased with the way they’ve come out and I think they look fittingly like rotten old slimy wood.

The final recipe went something like:

1. Basecoat in US dark camo brown. Can’t remember the exact colour but it’s similar to GW Graveyard Earth, so a bit greyish.
2. Wash down with Vallejo Smoke
3. Thin highlights / wetbrush with Vallejo medium flesh tone, then Vallejo light flesh
4. Harmonize with a glaze of Vallejo smoke
5. Tone things down with purple glazing and greens/turquoises for aging
6. Pick out final edging and wood grain bits with light flesh

Next up is to finish the bases for the two dogs I’ve got painted – McMourning’s zombie chihuahua familiar and a comedy pug.

I love pugs.
