Default Purple Slann!

This guy took me about a day to assemble and paint (I'm averaging this as I took lots of breaks in between) I think it's tabletop quality (And I'm a perfectonist) Though I'm not too happy with the belly on the slann. There are a few mistakes I noticed on his back when photographing him that need correcting but apart from that I'm relativley happy.

Having said that I want your opinions and any constructive critisism you may have to help me become a better painter. Thanks.


Anywhoo, here are the pictures:


The Slann on his palanquin



The Battle standard/sacred plaques



The chair without the slann



The slann without the chair!



The back of the slann (where denab stone has somehow got stuck on him )




The back of the chair

It looks great, I love the chair and it's base. Did it come like that or did you make it? The paint seems a little thick, water 'em down a little more, and also his stomach could use a good ink wash. Other than that it seems pretty good.

I used foundation paint for a lot of it, That might explain the thickness, or it could be the slanns texture, it isn't too smooth.


What ink would you use for it?

Probably either GW's brown ink, maybe but probably not Chestnut Ink, or you could make your own using Graveyard Earth (that's what I'd use) and lots of water.

Question is the whole Slann mini metal looks like you could magnetize the Slann to the chair

Yes he is all metal. . However it does sit in the chair very well.

Bigger pictures would help too, if you could get them.

if you do do an ink wash add some washing up liquid and test it out on sumthing else first because ink washes can go wrond and ruin the model

+++The chair thing is very well painted and the Slann looks good from a distance, but it somehow looks a bit distorted. I think you could probably drybrush the purple again and lightly ink the belly.+++

I use matt varnish with my inks, it's how I got the dark purple on the slann's skin.


As for the pictures they are thumbnails, if you click on them you get a bigger picture.
