The paint scheme I'm using for bone is:
- Prime using Army Painter Bone Primer.
- Drybrush using P3 Menoth White Base.
- Drybrush using P3 Menoth White Highlight.
- Drybrush using GW Skull White.
- Wash with my mixture of Devlan Mud, Sepia, and water.
It works pretty well.
The picture doesn't get the gradient as well as I would like but it works.
Everything is primed now and I was able to do the first drybrush on the entire army. Here is what I have now.
The army is coming together pretty well. Here's the schedule I'm working with to get this army done in time for The Colonial:
March 15: Drybrush Menoth White Highlight and Skull White on entire army.
March 16: Apply wash to entire army and paint Chariots and their bases.
March 17: Finish Chariot Crew and start on Screaming Skull Catapults.
March 18: Finish Scream Skull Catapults and crew.
March 19: Paint Casket of Souls.
March 20: Play some games!
March 21: Work on bases of entire army.
March 22: Finish bases on entire army.
March 23: Paint all Archers (60).
March 24: Play some more games!
March 25: Paint all Spearmen (50).
March 26: Paint Liche Priests
March 27: Paint Tomb King
I think this is very achievable. It took me about 2 hours to fully paint and base the 12 Spearmen above. Once I get the bone done on the army it'll just be a matter of basing, painting weapons and shields, and picking out details.
I'll be doing regular updates as I make progress.
I'm excited to do all this work and lose terribly for bringing a bad list of a bad army to a big tournament, but it'll still be fun!
