So I’ve finished the Earth Elementals that I bought at Hammerhead 2018. The models took me roughly a week to finish.
On the Sunday I built them.
Afterwards I sprayed them Black and basecoated them with Mechanicus Standard Grey.
Then painted them with Eshin Grey, which I followed with a shade of Agrax Earthshade.
I then drybrushed them with Ulthuan Grey and shaded them with Agrax Earthshade again.
Then I painted the plants on them:
- Castellan Green followed by Loren Forest for the vines.
- Dryad Bark highlighted with Gorthor Brown for the tree trunks.
- Death World Forest shaded with Biel Tan Green for the moss/leaves.
Then I basecoated the crystals with Naggaroth Night, then layered them with Xereus Purple, then highlighted with Slaanesh Grey, and shaded them with Druchii Violet.
And I painted the bases with Mournfang Brown.
Finally to finish off I glued on some small stones, and some Citadel Grass, followed by a thin layer of Citadel Snow, to create an effect that makes the bases look like the Elementals are fighting during the end of winter.
As soon as a slight problem is solved, I’ll be starting work on the Salamanders from Battle of the Glades.
