#6MMRPC Week 10: Kaladrax Reborn!

I spent the better part of the weekend working on Kaladrax, and I've made some significant progress. I base coated him in Reaper's Dirty Bone, and a dark grey airbrush color.





Then I added a 2/3 Vallejo Red Leather 1/3 Walnut Brown to the jerky areas and the wings.





I'm pretty sure I'm going to use up just about all of my GW Gryphonne Sepia. I have no idea what the current color is to replace it, or if Reaper or Vallejo has an equivalent color.


I then started highlighting the jerky with the same red leather and then red leather with army painter white.


My main conclusion so far in painting this beast is that it really is more of a marathon than a sprint. Kaladrax is HUGE compared to anything else I've ever painted. I've spent HOURS on him, and this is as far as I've gotten, and I haven't even started to highlight any of the bone yet.

Also, I can't find my metal Hyrekia metal mini... or the staff to the bones version... I hate that...

  1. You have a corgi! So cute!

    I think the current GW Sepia is rather good and very similar to it's predecessor.

    Good to see work on such a cool model. No idea if/when I'll ever get to mine...

  2. The meat jerky is looking pretty solid. I imagine this model would be way too heavy/delicate in most materials. Bones seems like a pretty solid idea for this one. Any basing thoughts?

    1. I'm going to use the base that came with it for now, but I'm planning on building something out of Hirst Arts blocks eventually.
