Skorne WIP Update: Cyclops Savages!

Cyclops Savage light warbeasts. Almost done, but trying to free-hand the Skorne insignia on their back-banners. Very hard, and there's much touching-up to be done.
I'm also trying to use a combination of coffee grounds and lizard bedding in my first attempt to base a miniature. If you look at the Titan Gladiator's base, I've coated it with a wash of Citadel "Tausept Ochre". So far, I'm not sure if it'll work out. The crumblies still flake off to the touch. Anyway, when it gets dry enough, I'll use a brown wash, highlight with a dusty color, and then add some yellow static grass. The Skorne come from the desert, and so help me, I'll have deserty bases!

Skornful Painting

Welcome to my Skorne Work in Progress! I must admit, I'm having a blast painting these models! They all have very detailed moulding, which makes the painting job laborious, but it provides an incredibly satisfying challenge. Surprisingly, I wanted to go completely by-the-book with the color scheme, because it's the scheme that really helped draw me to the faction in the first place. That, and the nasty melee oriented playstyle :cP
So far, I have only one model (mostly) completed, my Titan Gladiator (sans the back-banner). Working on the 2 battlebox Savages next, and then probably Hexeris (I've decided to bump Morghoul all the way down to last place in painting priority :c)

A small step for a student...

An even smaller step for 30mm figures!
