The Other One’s Guide to Painting: Mantic Werewolves Part 2

Hi folks, the Werewolves have had a wash applied to them, Army Painter Strong Tone ink.

Nice easy step in the painting process; just slather the ink wash all over the miniature using a brush and make sure the whole of the miniature is covered. Then, after  a couple of minutes, check the wash to make sure it hasn’t gathered up too much in any places.

If it has, I rip off a small piece of tissue paper, twist it up and use it to gently dab away any excess ink. You don’t want to dab too much away, as the ink contracts as it dries. A couple of practice goes soon give you a good sense of how much ink is enough, or too much. Leave it to dry completely, a good couple of hours or ideally; overnight.

Here’s how the Werewolves looked before:

And here’s how they look now:

Now first up; apologies. The lighting isn’t the same in these photos as the previous ones in Part 1, which doesn’t really help you to see the progress at all. (Note to self – in future when taking photos of miniatures in various stages of painting, take them all in the same conditions *durrr*)

The colours are a bit more muted by the wash and it has run into the nooks and crannies of the miniatures and dried there, giving shadow and depth, especially in the Wolves musculature.

Here’s a close up that hopefully demonstrate this:

I think that the Army Painter ink does such a good job that if you could leave the painting here, finish off the base and the miniature would look pretty good. Still the devil’s in the detail.

And that’s what is being applied in Part 3
