An in-depth painting guide on how I managed to get the look on the flesh for the Blood Bowl Troll. This is one of many Patron-only painting guides that you can gain access to by becoming a Patron. I did this as a special release for non-Patrons, so y’all know what you’re missing out on.
Some unorthodox colour mixtures were used to achieve this effect, as I was going for a more subdued scheme and feel. Since the face was beautifully sculpted, I felt a more realistic approach would enhance the sculpt and details.
All paints used in this video are Formula P3 from Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.
Base – 50/50 Mix of Khardic Flesh + Cryx Bane Highlight
Shade 1 – pure Thornwood Green
Shade 2 – pure Cryx Bane Base
Highlight 1 – Mix of Thrall Flesh, Cryx Bane Highlight, and Midlund Flesh in roughly equal proportions.
Highlight 2 – pure Ryn Flesh
Final Glaze – Sanguine Base
The final glaze can be placed anywhere blood rises to the surface of the skin (nose, ears, elbows, knees, toes, fingers), or to provide expression and emphasis of emotion (nose, ears, cheeks, eyes, lips, knuckles).
