So I'm a little late jumping on the devlan mud bandwagon, so i'll hold my remarks of amazement.

I had some chaos hounds that weren't painting themselves (actually figgy's), so i gave them a gray undercoat and attacked them with washes without even using a base coat of colors. Just wash right over undercoat.

After one application the result was unimpressive, but i stuck with it and applied several more coats, and picked out the details.

Undercoat: light gray spray (got a little fuzzy, but it ended up looking ok)
Skin: 2-3 washes of Orgyn flesh
Fur: 3-4 washes of badab black or devlan mud
Mouth/tentacles: leviathan purple wash and/or glaze
Scales,eyestalks, etc: thracka green wash and/or glaze
Teeth, horns, spikes, claws: faint glaze of bone in several layers

Final step over all: Watered down black wash, dove gray drybrush (folk art acrylic paint)

The pictures are washed out i apologize...




Also i have this very early stage skaven, done with a devlan mud over a white undercoat with dwarf flesh glazes for the skin.

I swear, those chaos hounds were done in like...5 minutes.

They look better in person! Done with ONLY washes...I was impressed. Nobody really uses em but we get the doggy random happening alot!

A great way to have painted models for Random Happenings without any kind of real effort.

...and wow, I haven't seen that Skaven...Looking forward to krumpin' me some rats!!!

Bah! Those pictures are terrible here are some better ones. You can really see in these how the undercoat got fuzzy and made a rough texture that the dove gray highlight served to accentuate.

Still, i painted 6 warhounds in under 5 hours which fast for me!!

They are great for random happenings and don't need to look perfect!

Here are some better pics:

VERY NICE EFFECT! I've been play around with washes for a VERY LONG time...you can get quite a depth to the colors & a subtle blending, depending on what you're trying for. VERY WELL DONE...have fun with the process.
