Cleaning: Cleaning Trumiel was not that difficult. Games workshop miniature are really state of the art today requiring minimal cleaning which is always easy to do.
Pre-Assembly: I did not assemble any part of the miniature before painting and this help me a lot during the painting phase.
Painting: As I already said the greatest challenge for painting this miniature was the cloak. I wanted it to look as natural as possible. I started of with bleached bone. Once dry I gave it a couple of shades of Ogre Flash ink. Once these were dry I concentrated more flash ink shading in the folds of the cloak. Then I began highlighting buy adding white to the bleached bone this I used white alone.
The blue armour was quite a challenge too. Starting from a mid blue I first shaded with blue and then black ink. After I mixed sky blue to the first blue tone and highlighted were needed. Same for the green. The power sword was give a spray of silver and then shaded with purple ink. The engravings on in are faded from gold to red to pure white as if they were heating up. I also free handed the white decorations on the green part of the cloak.
All that was left to do was to pick out the details and add a base.
Special: Crushed Chaos symbol base: Again I gave the base a unique custom touch. This to render my version of this miniature more unique and also give it an elevated position to let it show a bit more than the other miniature it will be with. Seen on the base is a crushed chaos symbol on which Trumiel is walking but not before this chaos incursion had left its victims in the form of the skull you are seeing infront of Trumiel.Midnight-Partners Virtual Club Midnight-Partners online Store Midnight-Partners blog Facebook Twitter Youtube Ebay
